The Dutch Army Sleeping Mat is one of the standard issue items for soldiers in the Royal Dutch Army. With the Netherlands playing an important role in the NATO-aligned defense of Europe, the Dutch Army spends a lot of time in the field on exercise. With soldiers requiring rest while not active, quality sleeping gear like this sleeping mat are essential to ensure each soldier is able to perform at 100% when needed.
Now that the Dutch Army has decided to surplus this sleeping mat system, you can experience the level of comfort of a soldier in the Royal Dutch Army. You can have your very own Dutch Army Sleeping Mat that can be used the next time you go camping, decide to exercise on the floor, or use it as a pad for any work you find yourself doing on the floor. The comfort is better than any other military sleeping pad and when your not using your sleeping pad, it can be rolled up and stored in the woodland camouflage carrying bag that comes with it.
I received my sleep mat in the mail today, and I am impressed. The mat is thick, actually thicker than I expected. The foam is still soft and supportive. The pad should give good insulation between the user and the ground. Also, as another reviewer commented already, the pad is light weight for the size. The mat seems very well built and should last along time. I am equally impressed with the bag which came with it, the bag seems built to last. This is a very quality piece of gear which seems to have been designed by people who knew what they were doing.
Got this in the mail yesterday. It is a used surplus but seems unused. Great camp stuff sack and poly eyelets to tie it together tightly. Would highly recommend.
Much nicer and thicker then the USGI mat and was pleasantly surprised at the weight or lack off. The included DPM stuff sack is a plus and actually the deciding factor of my purchase two great products.win win!
compact quality sleeping pad.
