I got this mat not with the intention of sleeping on it. I use it for sitting on at the crag while resting, putting on my rock shoes and drinking my rather good Earl grey tea brewed with sugar, honey, and laced with fresh sliced ginger root (needs to be in the flask for 4-5 hours to get a good ginger hit). The tea is great and the mat is very comfortable and when you get up it stays flat and absolutely refuses to roll up into a ball.
