The Robens Primavapour 40 is an incredibly small and lightweight camping mat that performs really well.
On first impressions, the Robens Primavapour 40 may look both high tech, and yet also, incredibly basic.
Well, this sleeping mat definitely 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 just what’s needed when you are backpacking or bike-packing.
Measuring just 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 didn’t take many puffs.
Just like the Robens Air Impact SIM, the Robens Primavapour has their 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 also help absorb the impact of uneven ground. Plus, the mat is a good size too, measuring 185 cm long and 55 cm wide.
But the mat is not just full of air; it contains PrimaLoft Infinity insulation that expands when the mat 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.
- Packs down small
- Comfortable for a small mat
- A bit pricey, but that's what you expect for a high-end lightweight mat.
