Roll mats aren’t really a problem. You strap them to the outside of your bergan in it’s own waterproof bag. You can fold the issue ones if you prefer it folded instead of rolled.
They are sound, same with the sleeping bags. You even get/used to get air mats to lie on in hot weather.
I had a trimmed down roll mat in the jungle for my hammock if I wanted some extra support. A small square carried in my daysack to sit on or lie on to keep your giblets dry. Always good for morale.
My absolute bees knees item was a Hennessy hammock for the jungle. Loved that thing. Gucci and ally as fook.
Amen on the Hennessy. I'd choose that over a rollmat on the deck anyday. Shame, swinging from trees in a hammock isn't considered tactical in the UK
