Inflatable bed mats are a private purchase.

The foam roll mat is still on issue.

What army are you in then?

We now get issued blow up roll matts (if going on ops) though they are quite pants to be honest. We still get the foam ones as well.

The poor underfunded one that New Labour want to prune yet again to save a few more pence.

You must be really special to get a blow up roll mat, we still get two blankets in summer and three in winter for use with our gas cape here :p

You've obviously not been on ops recently. The kit you get now is too much to be honest. Most of it is good kit as well. Are you a civvy, a cadet or TA?

Many thanks i need the knowledge for reenactment airsoft.If i understood, in British army soldiers use foam bedroll and inflatable roll mat? I thought, that soldiers didn`t use foam bedroll, and inflatable roll mat replaced it.

Nope, we do use both. Just depends on where you are and what you're doing, and sometimes what your preference is.

Foam roll mats are quite often better for the quick put away, but the blow ones are definately better against the cold hard ground.

Do the Marines use blow up bed rolls?

Or do they prefer the roll mats?

So you want to "reenact" sleeping?
Ffs! :roll:

My advice? Stay at home with your Harry Potter quilt cover, and mummy can bring you a boiled egg and toasted soldiers breakfast in bed.

got issued a blow up mat for herrick

there pretty shite.. the valves break on them really easy
I bought a civvy Highlander brand one for about £13 and it has a brass valve. Its very warm and comfortable and rolls down real small and fits under the PLCE bergan lid.

I wonder why one side is black and the other OG? Any ideas?
