+1 to this. I have the Exped 9 which is 9cm thick and I got the extra long and wide version and it was a revelation to sleep on after using standard airbeds for years. For the first time I was truly warm because no cold was coming through from the ground, I actually needed less layers because of it.
The 9LW does fill half a pannier bag but it’s worth it when it’s cold.
Thanks @elleon2wheels and @eddieb, will bear that one in mind. I’m definitely not going to do hardcore camping…. Would think about something like that if I decide I can handle the whole camping thing.
So consensus seems to be I have the minimum list more or less right. Will go from there.
