We recommend storing all sleeping mats (Air Sprung Cell mats or Self Inflating mats) with the valves open, laid out as flat as practicable or hung from the rail of a closet.
This will allow any moisture (from condensed breath) inside the mat to dry out.
If you have to reduce the size of the mat to store it, rolling it loosely or folding it is better for the insulation (Air Sprung Cell mats) or foam (Self Inflating mats) than rolling it tightly.
