I have always used a karrimat, and now experienceing a Thermarest there is no looking back: it is implossibly light (accurate to the product secification), and packs up very small (again accurate to the specification).

Does not disappoint. Used it on a bike packing trip up on the Yorkshire moors in the snow and kept me warm as toast. No issues at all with losing heat to the floor (unlike my camp mate who was freezing on his foam mat). Rolls up real small, plenty light enough and very tough despite looking like its made from crisp packet material. Space age indeed. Even comes with a puncture repair kit that can have a hole fixed in 2 minutes.

Our sleep mats needed replacing as every outing they seemed to go down and we'd wake with aching backs, hips and feeling cold.

Used this on a hike last week in France (Vosges) in the snow!

I've tried all sorts of sleepmat arrangements over many years of wildcamping, bivvying and mid-camps on mountain marathon events, from bits of karrimat, to the OMM duomat, to self-inflating Thermarests and even a flaked out climbing rope in snowholes. Just about the only things I haven't tried are bubble wrap and piles of party balloons. Fortunately, I won't have to bother with these because I recent bought a Neo Xtherm off Backpackinglight. Since it arrived I've used it for several extended wildcamping trips and it really is a brilliant piece of kit. I got the medium length which doesn't weigh that much and folds up pretty small (I use several OMM rucsacks, and the folded NeoAir slides into the back support sleeve on the rucksack nicely). It is quick and easy to inflate, doesn't rustle like a crisp packet, and doesn't slide around the tent. I've yet to fall off it, and it isn't thick enough to take up too much room in a small one-man tent (I use a Nordisk Svalbard, and even with the NeoAir fully inflated there is still plenty of headroom to sit up). You can tell just how thermally efficient the mat is as soon as you get on it - you can feel the warmth accumulating along the bottom of your sleeping bag straight away. When sleeping on uneven ground the squashy mattress seems to even-out the bumps: after a great night's sleep I was often surprised to find when taking the tent down that there were all sorts of tussocks and lumps in the ground where the tent had been. I would definitely have felt all this if I had been sleeping on a karrimat or self-inflating thermarest. I also use a Thermarest back-rest thing and the NeoAir Xtherm will squish into that with no probs, so sitting around in the tent is not uncomfortable. The NeoAir Xtherm isn't cheap, but is remarkably effective. I am a happy convert to the NeoAir mattress concept, and the Xtherm is a really effective and reliable piece of kit.
