- Pretty good, but there are better choices
For car camping the Exped Megamat is quite a bit more comfortable than the SIM Comfort. There are some mattress very similar to the SIM Comfort for less money. The main problem I had with it is that I roll off the edges. My experience is that 3.5" is the cut-off thickness for a two-dimensional (meaning, without box sides) mattress. Imagine a mattress 20" thick that doesn't have box sides and you will realize that thicker is not always better with this type of flat mattress. I don't recommend a 4" flat mattress because the edges collapse under your weight and you roll off.
I would not buy this mattress again simply because there are either better mattresses for more moeny (Exped Megamat) or similar mattresses for less money, meaning the SIM Comfort is not competitive for either price or comfort. That still doesn't mean it's a bad mattress. It's quite good, but these days mattress quality is increasing each year, it seems.
I also think there are other brands with a softer top fabric than the Exped SIM and Megamat.
