I use the Jack Wolfskin ExoLight I tent, which is (by its official specs) only 60 cm wide inside.
I'm looking to buy a colder-weather self-inflating sleeping pad to extend the season in the spring and autumn. I would really like to buy a slightly wider sleeping pad, since I sleep on my back and elbow room has been a problem. Regular pads, which I find a bit too narrow, are usually around 50–52 cm wide.
However, all "wide" models (for example from Exped or Therm-a-rest) seem to be around 65 cm wide. I expect the tub of the tent will stretch a little to the sides, but would that 5 cm excess be an actual problem? It's only 2.5 cm on each side, after all. And are there other problems you might see with the pad being too wide for the tent?
