Which Roll Mat for Ops ?

The Issue mat or the self inflateing ones ?

Heard the Dutch Issue one is good for the Desert as its well made, thicker and can take some hammering ?
Self inflating ones are issued!
The Royal Marine ones are quite good, you can fight naked in them and everything......

Issue tissue all the way. Comfy, big enough, and if it comes to it, you can soak up about thirty pints of rainwater with it, should your shellscrape flood in the rain. :)
Plus, and this is the important bit, it retains heat really, really, really well.
I remember using mine to wrap around myself and my mate when we were stuck on a hill in Belize during a torrential storm with no cover for miles. Kept us cosy for hours..... that and the touching.
Yeah Mountain Warehouse have got them in stock cheap aswell. Definately good for cut up because they're thick, however a bit short for the likes of me.
By the way, that has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that I work at Mountian Warehouse :D
