Wave mats consist of two separate air chambers, the lower and upper. As a result, the pressure in the individual chambers can be regulated separately.
A common argument against purely inflatable mats is that when it is inflated, the user sleeps on the ground. Thanks to two separate chambers, this danger is greatly reduced, as if one chamber is punctured, the other will save you.
The division of the mat into two layers also contributes significantly to increasing thermal insulation and thus user comfort in colder weather.
The mat is supplied with an inflatable bag, which reduces the amount of “fluffy” moisture in the mat to a minimum. The bag is equipped with two valves, so both mat chambers can be inflated at the same time. You connect the valves of the bag with the valves of the mat, “take” air into the bag, close it by rolling and then press it to move the air into the mat. In this way, the mat can be inflated comfortably to at least 80% of its volume.
To achieve the optimal final pressure, we recommend holding the valves or blowing your mouth due to the increased pressure inside the mat.
The inflatable bag can also be used as a Drybag and is compatible with all Pinguin mats equipped with a DLF – flat two-layer valve.
