U.K. Sleeping Pad
This is required equipment for NATO U.K. Armored Infantry participants
A ground pad is required for all attendees. This is not a comfort item, the ground pad adds a layer of insulation between you and the cold ground below. Your ground pad may be any military ground pad or any non-open cell foam commercial pad in a subdued color. Also popular with Squaddies was the folding German pads since they are much more convenient to manage than the roll mats. Be advised that the German mats are insulation only and not spongy comfort like the typical roll foam mat.
