Hi all, We have updated our old self inflatable bed rolls and have found that the new ones are slippery with the sleeping bag on them and you end up in a heap at the end of your bed. any tips or thoughts how we can stop this from happening ?

My old thermarest was always a bit like that. Made a sleeve for it. Old cotton sheet folded to size and sewn along open side. Sew up one end if you want. I haven't found the need. No more slippies with synthetic sleeping bag outer shell.

Cheers

I did likewise, but made it like a pillow slip with one end sewn up and a flap at the other. very handy in warmer weather when not using a sleeping bag.

Cheers

Drop into Clark rubber and get some of the "sticky" matting. It's not really sticky but if you put it on the bonnet or a shiny slippery surface it will not slide. And the heavier the load the greater the grip. I call it "Moon mat". Don't know why I do. Heard it some where.

Similar stuff to this: http://www.clarkrubber.com.au/non-slip-table-place-mats.html

WE have some in black 2M x 1.8 for the back of the car and some white stuff that we put on the bottom of the kitchen cupboards.

He he he, I thought it might be an undocumented feature, designed to cut down on the use of baby oil and save the environment.

Hi Mark,

Try some 'Shoe Goo' in a zig zag pattern on the mattress. Works a treat.

Cheers,

Matt.
