Does anyone think getting a travel sleeping sheet with EX3 (anti bed bugs, anti mossie and anti bacterial) is worth it?
I've only seen one's for about £35 minimum so far. Has anyone used one or would a normal one which hasn't been treated be fine?
Will generally be staying in backpacker places.

I would be extremely wary about spending my money on something like this. The makers of the product describe it as having "... the added benefit of our Ex3 treatment. This means that your sleeper will protect you against the build up of bacteria, act as a barrier against bed bugs as well as containing a mosquito repellent."
First, there is no mention as to what this so-called mosquito repellent is. No way would I buy something with a "mosquito repellent" and put it against my body without first knowing what it is.
Second, what does "your sleeper will protect you against the build up of bacteria" mean? Does it have some kind of anti-bacterial properties? The build up of bacteria on what? On you? On the sheet? What kind of bacteria are being referred to?
Third, when I see that it can "act as a barrier against bed bugs", all it means to me is that it acts as a physical barrier. In this case, it is no different than any other ordinary bed sheet.
Based on the scant product info seen on the web, I'd save my money and just buy a bedsheet if you think you'll need one. Most places will have mosquito nets if mozzies are an issue, anyway.
And, for what it's worth, it was around 16 pounds on the sites where I saw it for sale.
