Insulated Inflatable Sleeping Mats
Modern insulated inflatable mats provide excellent warmth for a minimal weight, but which is the best model for your intended use? We compare five mats across the price range.
Exped's SynMat UL 7 and 9 models offer unmatched comfort and warmth at a minimal weight and packed size.
UL 7 size M weighs only 455 g at size 183 x 52 cm with a sumptuous 7 cm thickness and an excellent R-Value of 3.1 All this at the size of a ½ litre bottle, the UL 9 weighs only 620 g and with an R-Value of 6 is rated for use at -25 C. The ultralight fabrics are extremely lightweight and compact. The mat is filled with 60g/m2 or 160g/m2 of synthetic micro fibre insulation which is laminated to the mat walls preventing movement of the material and allowing for improved loft.
