Youve tried the rest in your quest for a light, warm camping pad, now try the best, in the Exped DownMat 9 Pump. Product of the year for 2002-2003, as awarded by Europes leading outdoor magazines, this unique pad brings air and down together for an unparalleled warmth to weight ratio. Testing by the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Testing and Research has demonstrated that regular mats lose 3 times more heat to cold ground than to the air, the down in the Exped mat eliminates this problem giving you a higher R value with less weight and bulk. Low profile valves eliminate another common source of issues, and light foam barriers at the mats ends prevent down from escaping or traveling between chambers. Mother Natures creatures usually get it right, and now you can too with the DownMat 9 Pump from Exped.

Description of Exped DownMat 9 Pump Sleeping PadHeat loss is dramatically reduced with down insulation inside the mat, as demonstrated by EMPA, the Swiss Federal Labaratories for Materials Testing and Research, and field tests by expeditions. The thick cushion of air also provides comfort and smooths out uneven ground. And as down compresses extremely well, Downmats packs smaller than other insulated mats. FeaturesBoth low profile valves pat. pend one for inflation and the other for deflation ensure ease of use. As the valves are flat and not on the mats edge they do not protrude and are therefore protected and durable. Light foam blocks at the mats ends prevent down from escaping or migrating between chambers. Laminated polyester fabric is both durable, airtight and humidity resistant. The shells top surface is of brushed polyester fabric that provides excellent slip resistance and comfort next to the skin. Dark colors dry quickly. The seams are high frequency welded for durability.Two loops at the head end can be used to secure the packsack to the mat when used as a pillow.Light and warm The DownMat 7 Pump has a R-Value of 5.9.
