Robens Primavapour 40 lightweight sleeping mat review Photos
The Robens Primavapour 40 may look high-tech and incredibly basic on first impressions.
Well, this sleeping mat falls on the side of high-tech, and I'm so pleased that Robens sent me one over to review :-)
With our planned bike-packing trip, it was a perfect time to put this sleeping mat to the test.
Small and lightweight is needed when backpacking or bike-packing. Measuring only 23 cm long and 10 cm in diameter, this was easy to fit into my panniers or backpack.
Being such a short length, it can easily fit sideways into your bag.
Inflation is really easy and doesn't take many puffs. Like the Robens Air Impact SIM, the Robens Primavapour has a Peak Valve, making it quick to inflate without air escaping. And also very quick to deflate when you come to pack it away.
Comfort and using the Primavapour mat
To lay on, I found the Robens Primavapour quite comfortable for a lightweight mat.
Each of the small air chambers provides plenty of support and helps absorb uneven ground's impact. The mat is also a good size, measuring 185 cm long and 55 cm wide.
The mat contains not only air but PrimaLoft Infinity insulation that expands when it inflates, giving it an R-Value of 2.2 (2C).
So, it's comfortable with good insulation, packs down small, and is lightweight. You can see why the Robens Primavapour attracts a high price. It is definately no simple air bed.
