Looking at their web site, grey side up.
Will continue to do as I thought. Maybe I was reading upside down.
Downmat UL - light side up
non UL version - black side up
It seems we're all correct
My downmat is a 9lw...black side up.
Going to just sleep on the edge of my 5l to be safe.
Both sides are black once you turn off your torch
But only one side has the grid pattern right? Which should be up it seems.
Mine is actually dark grey and light grey.
Stop the world I want to get off.....
I'm going to try a small square piece of non slip drawer liner from Ikea, saves permanently marking your kit...
Its actually non slip rug underlay....nice cheap too.
I've coated my mats in silicone dots (blobs in some cases)... my last trip was a slide-fest.
Similar idea fron @tom is that very thin white foam sheet that comes wrapped around new tv, hi fi, speakers etc.
I slept on a sheet of similar foam on Sunday night .. This is screen packaging with a foil front....
That was after my used twice exped hl hw .slipped from under me and was lifted skywards off the mountain to finish up in the North Atlantic probably... Apologies to the marine life .. And my wife .
I have a piece of Plastazote for under my mat when its a bit chilly. Last week when i was out i found the mat would slide around on the foam, so i was thinking of somehow attaching some grommets or tabs to the foam to run some thin shock cord around it to hold the mat and foam together. Anyone any idea how to attach grommets or tabs to the foam without damaging it?
Impact adhesive effectively glues to CCF, Seamgrip works as well & is probably more flexible. Would be easy enough to glue a patch with a loop stitched to it onto it, as I've done with the Thermarest & S2S pillow.
Plastic tarp grommets ( the type you hammer together) work on up to 10 mm CCF. I've done a few on 3mm ccf underlay, and on thicker mats. Just leave out the rubber washer.
My local hardware shop sells them as does a camping shop (Gelert brand).
Cheers guys, i’ll look at those options when i get back, i’m out with the future missus looking at engagement rings.... might need to sell a kidney before i can buy anything!!!
