We all know that we’d prefer to sleep with a pillow when camping in the outdoors, but sometimes it’s hard to justify buying a camping pillow when you could just rough it, give up a bit of comfort and sleep on your jacket. With this great deal, Paddy Pallin is making the decision easy for you. If you buy a Nemo mat in this sleeping mat sale, not only are you saving 15% on the mat itself, but you’ll also score yourself a Nemo pillow worth $59.99.
Who are Nemo?
Nemo Equipment is a company dedicated to producing outdoor gear that brings something new, different and innovative to the market.

Their design mantra is “We never bring anything to market that doesn’t provide a better experience than what is already out there.”
The Nemo sleeping mats that are on sale are very high quality, and the deal applies to both the insulated and non-insulated mats, so you’re not restricted in the type of mat that you want to buy in order to get the bonus of the Nemo pillow!
Should I get an insulated or non-insulated mat?
When it comes to looking at whether you should invest in an insulated or non-insulated sleeping mat, it comes down to your intended use. One is not better than the other, it simply depends on the type of activity you’ll be undertaking. The difference in design between insulated and non-insulated mats is pretty straightforward; the insulated version will have heat reflective material inside them, which mirrors your body heat back to you and keeps the coldness of the ground temperature away. In Nemo’s case, they use Thermal Mirror™ metalised film on the inside of their insulated mattresses. This does mean that they’re more expensive, however, if you’re heading to a cooler environment, camping in winter, or heading anywhere near snow, an insulated mattress is definitely the right choice for you. If your intention is simply to go hiking or car camping in the warmer months, then a non-insulated mat will work perfectly fine. In fact, it’s the better choice, because it will help to stop you from overheating in your tent at night.
