Summary

Extremely comfortable! Worth every ounce of weight.

Pros

  • Extremely comfortable
  • Seems durable

Cons

  • A little heavy compared to new ultralight pads

This is by far the most comfortable sleeping pad that I've ever used. It actually beats the futon mattress that I have at home. Although it is heavy as far as lightweight gear goes, it is worth every ounce. You can save a few of those pounds in a lighter sleeping bag because of the high R value.

Like I said, I'm willing to cut ounces every where else but am determined to carry this pad because a good night's sleep is worth a lot.

Rating: rated 2.5 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $200

Would be 5 stars had the last 2 airmats and this synmat not developed seepage through up to 30 points in the fabric, as well as my partner's synmat and airmat. The fact that i have persisted with exped is testament to the great product, nothing is as warm, light, cheap and comfortable as these mats. Love them to bits, when they are inflated. They will typically work for around 30 nights sleep? then just start going down, and a shower test always reveals seepage through the topside fabric.

Exped has always been great with replacing each one but, there has been more than one occasion, one on a 4 day ice climbing trip in the southern alps, where the mat has started its degradation in a situation where its warmth is relied on. In that case we learned the true value of snow caves and slept on a folded tent!

Great product, buy one if its what you need, but keep the receipt and test it before you take it into the snow.

Used on K2 and Everest treks...fantastic for sleeping on glaciers...warm as toast no more cold backs. Takes a few times to get the hang of filling the chambers but other then that, a great product.

The new SynMat UL 7 offers unmatched comfort and warmth at a minimal weight and packed size. Size M weighs only 460 g at size 183 x 52 cm and sumptuous 7 cm thickness and an excellent R-Value of 3.1. All this at the size of a liter bottle.

When the extreme warmth of an Exped DownMat is not necessary, you can still find comfort, light weight, and compact size with the SynMat. The lofted microfiber insulation provides comfort from the cold, rocky ground and is baffled to provide supportive cushioning and prevent cold spots. A built-in pump inflates the mat quickly while the polyester surface fabric prevents your sleeping bag from slipping off during the night. Warmest, most durable synthetic insulated mat.
