I outfit it with two locally made sleeping mats, a Therma-Rest, a Karrimat, a blanket, a duvet jacket, two pillows, a -30[degrees]C synthetic bag and a lightweight down bag.
Annapurna 1970 had a similar impact on Karrimor for rucksacks, the Whillans Box (the special aluminum-framed high-altitude tent designed to Whillans' specifications and made by Karrimor using pack frame technology), and the Karrimat. So great was the level of publicity that the company struggled to keep up with demand.
The reincarnation of the classic Karrimat, this lightweight, waterproof, tear-resistant and CFC-free mat costs a little more than other closed-cell foam mats on the market, but will last you for years.
However, although self-inflating mats are very comfortable, when you camp out in very cold conditions you may still need the extra insulation of a closed-cell foam mat like the Karrimor Karrimat Expedition.
Under this I used a half-length Ultra light self-inflating Thermarest and a half-length Karrimat. This is the lightest combination I have found that is also comfortable.
So I usually put the waterproof fly-sheet over the top and lie naked on my Karrimat and cotton sleeping bag liner.
When sleeping, I use my old down bag (which is warm to about minus 5 [degrees] C) with a liner made of Meraklon, and a Karrimat as a ground sheet.
