Lidds0, Iíve gone through having the mondoking 3D then the dreamtimes now the go outdoors cirria dlx which are the best and most comfortable..... this is on top of the decathlon air bed base



That's quite a leap of faith; spending almost £100 each on what appears to be a Go exclusive. The valve is unusual (how do you add those essential few puffs of air to a large, flat valve?) and what's the warranty period? Thermarest offer a limited lifetime warranty (whatever that means!) which does give some confidence.

What didn't you like about the Mondoking 3D (YouTube videos showing attempts to put back in the bag put me off!)? And why didn't you like the Dreamtime (we loved ours, just am holding off buying same again due to price).

Sorry to go off-thread topic a bit here. Of course, this question relates to what Karsten-owners use to sleep on, in their Karsten tents...

The mondoking was better than the Dreamtime imho due to the fact Iím a side sleeper and always felt the sim which was 5cm if Iím correct had to be a bit harder than the mondoking to keep my hips of the ground (the memory foam never really helped imho) I tried the exped megamat which was better than both the thermarest ( didnít like to admit it as I was a stearn theramrest fan!) then I saw that go outdoors brought out a copy, went down to try and was just as good as the exped but almost half the price and so far we are really pleased as the setup with the decathlon air base is as good as home - and Iím really fussy as you can possibly tell😜👍😂




Thanks for your response mwhitcher. So, as one super-fussy camper to another, when deciding on which SIM would best suit your KARSTEN tent - in the spirit of this illustrious thread - did you think that both the Mondoking 3D and the Cirro DLX are both copies of the Exped Megamat?

It's interesting that you say you went from the Mondoking 3D to the Dreamtime to the Cirro, what are the differences between the Mondoking 3D and the Cirro DLX?

I just wonder if there's more to go wrong with these box-shaped SIMs, with them having more seams to potentially fail? And how does that large flat valve perform on the Cirro DLX (no bag-like pump to top-up, as per the Megamat, I notice)?

Ahhh, just noticed I actually had the mondoking (not 3D version) which has tapered sides it was the xl version with the double valves. The valve on the cirro dlx is excellent as it spins through 180degrees so the flap keeps air in and a quick puff over flates if required (though the sim actually naturally inflates better than both the others and quicker) and by turning 180 degrees it allow deflation so when packing away it wouldnít allow air back in - again a lot better than the other 2. If you take a look you will see what I mean,. The valves looks the same as on the vangos. My friend has brought 2 also and raves about them.
