The perfect sleeping mat for summer bikepacking adventures

By Kenny Stocker

In Cass Gilbert's exploration of Alpkit's Cloud Base air mattress, he highlights the product's stellar attributes. With an impressive tiny pack size and lightweight build, this mattress stands out as a top contender for the space-conscious adventurer.

Gilbert appreciates the super-quick inflation and the dimple-like design that cradles the body comfortably. The generous dimensions cater to taller, broad-shouldered individuals, ensuring they get a good night's sleep without compromising on space.

Durability is another feather in the cap of the Cloud Base; even with exposure to varied terrains like forest floors and pastures sprinkled with pointy pine needles, the mattress remains puncture-resistant. With all these positive attributes, the Cloud Base proves to be a stellar choice for warm nights, though Gilbert suggests considering insulation during cooler seasons.

All in all, Alpkit's Cloud Base air mattress offers a blend of convenience, comfort, and durability for your bikepacking escapades.
