User Review: Exped DownMat
Price Paid: $150
This was the first time I slept decent, not needing to turn over all night to relieve pain from grounding out my hip in the hard dirt. I slept great. Conditions were not cold, so I can't attest to warmth created by Exped, but comfort, yes, unbelievable.
On the downside (LOL), this pad is heavy. And the bag inflator and valves are a pain. The valves are hard to work, and ultimately, I gave up on using the inflation bag. Setting it on the dirt and pressing always seemed to squish the tube leading to the mat and the valves did not stay in the right position so the air I was putting in escaped. I gave up and blew it orally, something I've never had to do before, which is not recommended.
