The Danish outdoor specialist Nordisk offers, among other things, the four very light sleeping mats called Grip, Vanna, Vega and Ven, which take up very little space when packing.

A camping holiday with a motorcycle is a classic among tours on two wheels. If you don’t have a good-natured buddy who transports your luggage in the support vehicle, you will learn two things at the latest when packing: the art of restricting yourself and an eye for the benefit / pack size ratio.

Sleeping mats are definitely useful. The foam mat, rolled as tightly as possible by hand and lashed with expander rubbers, looks back on a career spanning decades. It is still useful and inexpensive.

For around 100 euros each, Nordisk offers four sleeping mats that can do a lot better. All are equipped with a so-called push / pull valve, which is supposed to facilitate and accelerate inflation and deflation.
