MyOutdoors saw this mattress at Outdoor Trade Show, Manchester last year and at ISPO, Munich this year and it remains one of the stand out pieces of gear for 2019.

The innovative mattress was first selected as “Sleeping Systems” category winner by a panel of outdoor industry judges, and then chosen by public vote against all category winners for the coveted “Product of the Year” prize.

From the judging panel, writer and gear tester for TGO Magazine Chris Townsend said of the UberLite: “A ridiculously light mat and an astonishing achievement. I never thought a sleeping mat could weigh so little.”

Part of the brand’s fast & Light collection, the UberLite is the lightest insulated mattress on the market, weighing just 250 grams while offering 6.4 centimetres of cushioning.

Appealing to modern day alpinists to backpackers alike, the mat packs down to the size of a drinks can, making it the ideal choice for those packing light for their journey.

Designed with Therm-a-Rest’s trusted Triangular Core Matrix technology, the UberLite also delivers a stable sleep surface while minimizing heat loss. Now you can lighten your load without sacrificing comfort, reliability, and durability – qualities synonymous with the Therm-a-Rest brand.

Available in Small: 170g, £145.00; Regular: 250g, £180.00; Large: 340g, £210.00.

MyOutdoors will have one in for review in the next few weeks, we’re looking forward to finding out for ourselves how it performs in real life use. Well let you know what we think.
