Yogamat as Business Class Lie-Flat Seat Mattress

I fly quite a bit in lie-flat business class seats. Very few airlines offer a thin mattress, but I have found my sleep experience far superior in those circumstances. I am considering to bring a personal yogamat and place in the seat in lie-flat position. I realise I will have to cut the width. Has anyone tried this? Any thoughts?

It seems like a dramatic escalation in size, weight and hassle.

I don't do this myself, but if I was packing my own mattress it would probably be one of the modern tiny inflatables. I know it sounds laughable but read the reviews first.

Thanks. The big issue here would seem to be the ability or lack thereof to trim it to fit the narrow seat ???

Yep, hard to predict if it would be an issue. It cannot be trimmed to size, but you could inflate it a little less than full, and let the sides ride up a bit.

Experimentation required. Best of luck

Inflatable camping mats can be trimmed as the edges are heat sealed. The length is easier to alter than the width due to how most baffles are oriented. Uninsulated is easier to alter, lighter weight, and should be fine for a plane.

Just don't trim off the inflation valve.

It is a good way to recycle a punctured camping mat into a sit pad, too.
