I'm heading off to Asia for 3 months of voluntary work. We have been advised to bring a roll mat but I don't know how I could pack it inside my 65L rucksack? Does anyone have any advice/tips?

I could attach it to the outside but what if it gets lost/falls off when I check it in at the airport?

Would it fit in vertically? I was going to suggest attaching on to your rucksack.

I'm not sure what kind of bag you have, but attaching it on the outside similarly to this would be the easiest option:

a) Unless you're sleeping outside you don't need a rollmat.
b) You can get inflatable ones that save a lot of space and are much better insulation + comfort. They are more expensive though.
c) Failing those, the outside is fine. You're probably going with a cheap foam one right? They are compressible so easy to strap on super tightly so they simply don't fall off, and even if the worst happens and they do.. who cares? Buy a new on they're like £3.

You could also just buy a cover bag for your rucksack. I have one that easily would fit the rucksack plus a mat attached.
