I'm after some recommendations on a decent bedding solution that is compact enough to be stowed away in a hiking backpack (planning a walk-in camp trip with the boy once restrictions are lifted and trying to kit-up, ready to go).
Primary needs is:
1. Good enough support for hips, elbow and shoulders. Primarily a side sleeper and currently these areas feel like I'm laying directly on concrete lol
3. Reasonable quality
4. Generous width a positive as I tent to roll around alot.
Budget would be around $100, less would be amazing but also if it checks all the boxes I'm willing to stretch up a bit.
I'm not too concerned about weight as the hike would only be about 2-3 hours, this is more about the camping than hiking.
I honestly have no idea where to start with what a "good brand" is let alone identifying the good quality lesser known stuff. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
As a benchmark I find my Son's Denali Camper Ultimate Mat quite comfortable, it doesn't pack down even remotely compact though. Also from what I've read up, the quality just isn't there so time will tell on that.
