Dirtbag is our fattest baddest mat for all those dirtbag moments in your life. The most comfortable mat you can carry with near fat pad comfort for those squished into smaller tents. Out of all of our mats this is the one that has the widest range of uses and looks set to redefine the boundary between car based fat mat comfort camping and trail based wilderness camping.
Dirtbag is a sleeping mat which is hard to ignore especially if comfort is way up there on your list of priorities. If you are travelling for an extended period and sleeping primarily on the ground then carrying a few more grams in your pack could be worth the effort. Strap it to your camel for star-gazing in the Sahara, chuck it on the floor of your old pals house in downtown Sydney for a few days. Perhaps take it down Mexico way, or back up along the Pacific Coast Highway. Travel, life.
