User Review: Exped SynMat 7 Pump
Source: tried it in the store
Have never slept better in the outdoors than I have since buying this product. Sleep better than at home!
- Non slip
Synmat 7 inflates with about 110 compressions and deflates readily once bung removed. Rolls easily into bag the size of a loaf of bread for storage and transport.
When placed side by side, two Synmats stay together rather than sliding apart, making sleeping with a partner very comfortable. The natural contours make it feel like you are in a double bed.
The Synmat 7 mattress provides amazing support for the curve between one's waist and hips, which is significant for women in particular. When stomach sleeping, this mattress provides substantial support to the spine and pelvis. We have one regular (20 inch) Synmat and one wide (25 inch) and this arrangement works really well, making it feel like we are on a double bed. The wider mattress is definitely more comfortable for taller and wider campers.
Finally, the Synmat ensures a warm snug sleep.
Over the past year we have developed confidence in the construction of this mattress. Have cared for the mattress gently and have had no leaks or punctures.
We've used our Synmat 7's on spring, summer and fall kayaking trips on the west coast and in the tropics for about 50 nights. Have camped on sand, stones, gravel, grass and the deck of a ferry (!) and it excels every time.
While the initial layout for the Synmats seemed high, they have paid off in every way for us.
