SynMat Hyperlite

rated 5 of 5 stars Equal and improved compared to Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Light. Rolls up tight and small. And most importantly, it doesn't bottom out on you like on most air pads. Well well well. I purchased one of the best air pads for half the cost of a Therm-a-Rest and could have not been more pleased with this product. Very rarely do I find a pad that doesn't bottom out, so I was surprised to find this. This pad is equal to the Therm-a-Rest with the bones of being half the cost and having the option of using the… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars OMG. What a crazy thing this is. While your friends are huffing and puffing to get their air pads blown up, you have been sitting on your air pad since their fifth breath because of the Schnozzel. Fill this tough bag up with air and squeeze it into the air pad. Two times and you are done. And you can use it as a stuff sack following the hike rule of multiple-use items. While your friends are almost dead from blowing up their air pads, you have used the Schnozzel two times and filled up your air… Full review

DownMat UL 7

rated 4 of 5 stars Small package, good results. A good mat for an occasional overnight. Got this new Exped mat at a local outdoor center, pretty good deal on it as they were moving out older inventory. First time to use it, couldn't get the included air pump to work properly. Maybe it was me, but I reckon I'm smart enough to figure out how to use an air pump.   Ended up using mouth-to-valve inflation method. If I had been hiking all day, I would have thrown this thing in the woods at this point. But, once I got it… Full review

Thunder 70

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a relatively lightweight pack (3.5 lbs) without many bells and whistles but which excels at comfortably carrying 35-40 lbs in rugged terrain.   Fit:  The thorough review on this pack at SectionHiker.com convinced me to try this pack, particularly the warning that the belt ran a bit small. I have about a 29-30" waist, and I did not want a belt that had the padding bunched up against the buckle. In the end, I had an inch or two to spare on either side of the buckle when fully tightened (even… Full review

SynMat UL 7

rated 5 of 5 stars Warm and quiet. Gives a good night's sleep. Have used this for a number of years now and will be replacing my current one with a newer one (wider model, at 65cm rather than 52). I have looked at many alternatives and tried a few in shops. For a lightweight and warm mat this is quiet (I am surprised at someone describing it below as noisy, not my experience at all). I am a light sleeper but this mat has never given me cause to curse! In comparison I tried a Sea to Summit mat as the specs looked… Full review
