The Static V2 is a comfortable, lightweight and super compact sleeping mat with a unique V shaped centre that hugs the body like no other camping mat.
The Static V2 delivers exceptional comfort that weighs just a pound and packs down to the size of a soda can. An excellent choice for backcountry travellers who don’t feel the need to abandon all luxury, the V2’s body-mapped ergonomic design, oversized sleeping area and dynamic side rails cushion and cradle the body for a better night’s sleep. Advanced materials are used to shed weight without sacrificing durability, and the V chamber construction minimizes air movement to maintain maximum insulating performance.
While most other lightweight inflatable sleeping pads use a flatter or more cylindrical cushion design, the Static V2 has a lot of innovative shape built into it. First, the center portion of the pad has a V shape while the outer edges are a bunch of little squares that form a side rail of sorts. The effect? Excellent cushion and stability.
The fabric is flexible and slightly thicker on the bottom than the top, giving you extra protection where it's needed. It can pack down to to the size of a Nalgene water bottle (see pic) saving important space in your pack. There are other lightweight mattress that are really good these days, but if your on a budget the Static V2 gives you an excellent overall size and weight for your money.
