now use mainly foam mats as they are indestructable for the chair kit and two matts for sleeping, one alpkit self inflating and a thermarest neoair small size as a spare. I have to take a spare as waiting 4/5 days when in scotland to get a replacement and sleeping on the floor is not fun.
total weight is less than 900g and well worth the redundancy.
using a self inflating mat to sleep on and as a chair when you are 14.5 stone and 5tf 10 just does not work.
Don't know what relevance your weight and height have on the failure of all your mats. I am both heavier and taller than you and have no problem.
