I purchase 4 of these mats for myself, my wife and my two young children. We used them for our first overnight camping trip as a family. They are nice and light and very easy to roll and unroll. When it comes to comfort I will say they are what they are. Its not like sleeping on an air mattress or inflatable mat but if you shop on this site you already know this. I will probably need to upgrade the wife and kids but I am happy with this mat especially for the price.

This mat has a very nice cushiony feel. The major drawback is its narrow width, only 20", acceptable for children. Its thickness may not be comfortable enough for long term camping. But for weekend trips, it is sufficient.

Purchased these to cover the floor of a family tent. Opened the first package and was hit with a strong, sharp odor. Called ALPS and they claimed to have never heard of the problem, then recommended that I air them out. Put them in a shed, very hot, for two days. The odor was gone. Will see if it comes back. Don't expect these to last more than a couple seasons. The foam mars and rips easily. I scarred one badly pulling it off the box it had been draped over. The foam is not dense, and will compress under the weight of an elbow or sharp hip. If you're going out for a long time or in difficult conditions, get something else. Should be fine as a tent "carpet."
Best Uses: Car Camping
