Exped SynMat Sleeping Pad
Reviews & Awards
- "If you value mattresslike cush as much as electric-blanket warmth, get this super-thick pad. Its plush comfort and lifelong durability have made it a perennial favorite among our sore-backed staff." - Backpacker Magazine, Softest Pad, Fall Gear Guide 2009
- "Exped Synmat 7. Pack this 2.75-inch-thick insulated mattress and you'll never miss your bed again. One tester even threw it down on potato-size desert cobbles and called it comfy." - Backpacker Magazine 2008 Gear Guide
- 2006 German Outdoor Magazine Editor's Choice Award, one of Europe's most prestigious outdoor awards
This airmat filled with synthetic fiber is super comfortable, warmer and lighter than regular sleeping mats. The Exped Syn Mat packs down small thanks to the microfiber filling that compresses extremely well. Quick inflation with the ingenious integrated pump (not included with Basic model).
- Both low profile valves (pat. pend) one for inflation and the other for deflation ensure ease of use. As the valves are flat and not on the mat's edge they do not protrude and are therefore protected and durable.
- Welded baffles between the microfiber filled chambers, unlike traditional airmats, eliminate cold spots and create a comfortably supportive and stable air cushion.
- Laminated polyester fabric is both durable, airtight and humidity resistant. The shell's top surface is of brushed polyester fabric that provides excellent slip resistance and comfort next to the skin. The seams are high frequency welded for durability.
- Two loops at the head end can be used to secure the packsack to the mat when used as a pillow.
- Light and warm: The Synmat 7 Pump has a heat resistance value of 4.9. At about the same weight a standard 2.5 cm self inflating mat only offers a R-value of 2.5. EMPA tests demonstrated that regular mats lose 3x more heat to cold ground than to the air. The conclusion is that a warmer mat is more important than a warmer sleeping bag.
- Integrated pump for quick and easy mat inflation (not included with Basic model)
- For Basic model, mouth inflate or use with Pillow Pump or Mini Pump
- Included: repair kit with adhesive and fabric patches.
