Multimat Standard 8mm Kumfie
Advantages: Simple, Comfy, Cheap
This has to be one of the simplest inventions anyone has come up with in recent years, yet it really is brilliant. Such a basic piece of kit that has so many uses. The Multimat Kumfie is listed here on Dooyoo under the camping section, but to be honest it could probably fit into about ten different categories. This is such a versatile little mat that there really are countless ways to make use of this. I first saw one of these a few years back when my mum and dad were neatly on one each while out doing some garden, I thought they looked quite funny but could also see the benefits to them, a while later I spotted them in a walking shop, so I thought, well why not and got myself one.
So first of all, what exactly is the Multimat Komfie? Well it's simply a piece of foam. Pretty basic you would have to say, but this is so much more. The foam is 8mm thick which means it gives a nice bit of padding. It is the perfect size to sit or kneel on. It has a handy little handle built into the foam so it is easy to carry. The foam is very durable and won't wear out quickly. One of the benefits of foam is that it is a superb insulator, so sitting on this not only keeps your bot comfy, it also keeps it warm. These can easily be tied on to hard chairs to give an extra bit of padding or simply placed on the ground when sitting outside.
For me personally the little Komfie comes in very handy when I go out walking. It slips nicely into a rucksack and if you place it at the back of the rucksack it gives you some extra padding for your back. Many modern rucksacks have good moulded structures which keep the pack in shape and pad your back, however, some of the older models or just cheap rucksacks do not have this luxury. Slip one of these down the back of the rucksack and it gives you nice padding and a good shape to your rucksack, then you don't get any nasty jabs from your flask while your walking along.
When I take this walking it's ideal to just pull out and sit on. It's only small but it fits my bum perfectly. Even in cold conditions it gives a nice warm feeling to your bum even if the ground is cold and wet. This is also very handy if you go camping, hence it being in the camping section here on Dooyoo. Again it's just ever so handy to pull out and sit on, ideal for when your all say round a fire. Another good use is when on the beach, again, instead of that damp sand you often find on our beaches, the comfy keeps you warm and dry.
As I said at the start this really is a very simply basic piece of equipment, but often the best inventions are simple ones! This is no exception to the rule. You can pick one of these up for around £2 so they are excellent value, they last pretty well if you look after them, if you don't look after them, you can simply buy another at that price. The Komfie is a great little piece of kit that everyone should own. Go and get yourself one of these and treat your bum with the respect it deserves!
Summary: Very Nice
