User Review: Exped DownMat 9 DLX
Price Paid: 169 USD
Hey, you should buy this mat in Canada at MEC, as it is WAY cheaper and in Canadian $$ too. The mat has transformed our backpacking experience. We have moved to a lighter sleeping bag system as the R value is awesome (you don't lose as much heat to the ground, so you need less bag).
Although the mats weigh a bit more than some, it makes up for itself by enabling you to downsize on your sleeping bag weight, and it's super comfortable. Workmanship and finish on the mat is excellent. Non-self-inflating, but once you get used to their pump sack system, it doesn't take long to inflate. Check it out, it's truly amazing!
