Has anyone any recommendations of which ones are the most comfortable.

I am considering buying the Outwell Double 5cm as it seems to be reasonably, but not too cheaply, priced.  Also, it seems to be wider at 130 cms compared to others.

(We were thinking of an air bed but have read so many reviews mentioning problems and disasters that a mat seems the best option. Also considered fishing beds but seem pricey for a good one and possible very bulky and heavy to pack.)

We have been using two ThermaRest DreamTime XL's 119 each! for the last couple of years, more of a sleeping system than just a self inflating matt, they fasten together to form a Queen Size bed, add to that a fitted Queen Size sheet 15, for hot climes just a large cotton sheet to throw on top 10, and a 6 Netto King Size 4.5 Tog Duvet with, M&S 10 Cotton Duvet Cover for when the nights get cool, not forgetting a couple of pillows with cotton covers 20 for us it's the perfect sleep system, OK seems a lot of wonga for a good nights sleep at 299, but well worth it I can tell you!.

Thanks for that - we are looking to get a couple of doubles so that we can put them together and sleep snuggly alongside our 2 kids and the trekker looks a bit more expensive.

We are just about to buy our first tent and looking at all the basics for our first venture so I want to make sure we buy something really comfortable and warm to sleep on so that everyone wants to go camping again as it has taken some initial pursuading to do this!

I am hoping for reassurance that the Outwell SIMs are worth investing in before I commit to buy them as it will be a little over 100 on top of tent, carpet, toilet, awning, sleeping bags/duvets etc. and I always like to do a bit of research before  spending out on something that could be a mistake!

We have only had 1 holiday away in over ten years and hoping to get some time away from it all and to play with the children before they've grown up!

You should be fine with the Outwells, we have Vango's and they have been fine so far (make sure they are flock finished) Get some fitted sheepskin type sheets and a few fleece blankets to go on top of the airbeds.

BTW - Two airbeds won't sit snuggly next to each other. The sides are slightly rounded therefore there will be a gap. Your idea is spot on though. Make things as comfy as possible and you're all more likely to enjoy it and want to go again.

Love your last thought as well

Ooop's sorry - just realised you're talking about self inflating mattresses. Please feel free to totally ignore my ramblings

I have Robens self inflating matresses. These are made by Outwell, Robens is sort of the backpacking arm of the OASE company. Outwell are the family arm. Anyway, mine are singles and as said above do not stay together very well. Mine are 10cm thick. The Outwell ones have a non slip backing which is better than mine. But they are very comfortable, so the Outwell ones should be the same. I would cover them with something though as the material on the face fabric gets a but grubby very easily
