Down Mat Pump7 LW


4.0 average, based on 2 reviews

Manufacturer: Exped

Product Information

Heat loss is dramatically reduced with down insulation inside the mat, as demonstrated by EMPA, the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Testing and Research, and field tests by expeditions.
The thick cushion of air also provides comfort and smooths out uneven ground.
As down compresses extremely well, Down mats pack smaller than other insulated mats.

Big Mat with (foam) chips

Exped SynMat 7LW Having tried a few mats including Exped's bulky old Comfort Foam and the IMO gimmicky Down Mats, the extra wide SynMat 7LW suits me best. It's long and thick enough to provide a great night's sleep while rolling up fairly small and with a tough-looking shell. I suppose it's better than the daft old bellows pump idea, but do we really need the expense of an integrated pump for an airbed when we all come equipped with lungs? I can see the moisture/humidity aspect spoiling down but with synthetics too? I guess so; something could eventually delaminate. When you're worn out the hand pumping can be an awkward procedure but TBH only takes one minute. I'd also prefer an old style screw valve which made it a bit easier to deflate slowly to attain optimal support. But again, maybe the simple plug caps are less prone to grit and so leaks. And £145 for an airbed - holy moly! Still, when it's -10 outside or even in a cheap hotel with a crap mattress, you won't be complaining when perched on a DLX. After a hard day's riding you've got to sleep well and you can rely on that with this mat. I now use the yellow Exped UL. Very compact (1 litre) volume but still a crazy price for a bag of air. Its thin and so puncture prone in thorny environments, but the included repair kit works well in the field. Mine got nicked and I didn't hesitate too much to buy another.

Downmat 7 DLX

The ability to sleep comfortably when camping/touring is essential to avoid fatigue as the days go on. With the downmat I have plenty of warmth and the DLX gives those of more ample proportions (wide or long) excellent comfort. Having used non down mats and others brands of sleeping mats and nothing comes close to the DownMat 7 DLX in terms of pressing my buttons.
