Further to the post about sleeping bag advice I have been advised to get a thick thermarest, does anyone have any experience of these or any alternative brands?

I have looked up some of the thermarest and found them to be around £80 for a thicker one, is this a good price?

Thermarest matresses are some of the best in the market. 80 GBP sounds like a normal price, neither good nor bad.

But I wonder, do you need a thick mattress because it will be cold or do you want a thick mattress because it will be softer to sleep on? How important is weight to you?

An alternative for you to look at would be the Exped Downmat or Exped Synmat. Much softer and warmer than a thick Thermarest and about the same price.
