    Is that the sleeping mat that looks uncannily like a Neoair?

    Nemo make 4 different sleeping mats. The one I like the look of it the TUO range which has two seperate foam filled air chambers.

    As for the tents, the Nemo Meta 1 Person and the Meta 2 Person look to offer a good amount of space for the weight.

    Is the neoair worth ls in weight? Or is it too flimsy?

    I'm happy with the NeoAir apart from what I've previously said in that its a bit to easy to puncture... whats the cost of the Nemo one?

    I haven't found any prices yet. The TUO would be more of a winter mattress as the lightest weights in at 1kg.

    You pays your money you take your chance. Think my new summer mat will be a Neoair or Pacific Outdoor Equipment air bed

    i just ordered a Nemo Meta 2p yesterday from web togs - £350 - which is a bit steep for a single wall tent but the price is diluted somewhat by a free Nemo Astro valued at £90.....

    I've just ordered a Nemo Astro insulated with a pillowtop from REI in the US and picking it up in Denver in a couple of weeks so I will report back then. I've also got a FILLO pillow on the way ready for our forthcoming boys bike trip to France.

    With my REI dividend and the current 20% online discount I got it for $100! Bargain....

    Cheaper at www.Ultralightoutdoorgear.co.uk

    I was considering one but there are issues with condensation.

    I picked up my Nemo Astro and pillowtop sleeping mat yesterday along with a Fillo pillow...

    I'm gobsmacked how comfortable it is. I don't think it would be much of an exaggeration to say it is almost as comfortable as my proper bed.

    The sleeping mat is bulky with the pillowtop sleeve on it. I think it's the ideal combination as I can remove it for walking (whereupon it packs down to the size of a waterbottle), but I will MOST definitely be taking along the sleeve on the motorbike as weight will be less of an issue.

    The mat on its own is slightly heavier than a neoair at about 570g but looks a lot more robust. With the pillowtop cover it comes in at 1284g but it is extremely luxurious.

    The pillow is the most comfortable camping pillow I have come across, is MUCH less noisy than the Mammut one I was using previously and packs down to an acceptable size in it's built in stuff-sack.

    I'll report back when I've spent a week on it during the trip as to how it faired but first impressions are extremely positive.
