Exped's Synmat 7 Hyperlite mats minimise weight by being mummy shaped yet still offer excellent comfort levels and good insulation.
Exped says: The SynMat Hyperlite is the world’s lightest mat at its warmth and comfort levels!
It packs to an extremely small size and it's tapered profile fits into the smallest tents.Tapered design and 20 denier fabric for weight reduction, microfiber insulation for 3-season warmth and 7cm thickness for comfort.
This mat proves that comfort and warmth need not be sacrifice in pursuit of super light packing.
Exped's Synmat HyperLite mats are designed to be the lightest mats without compromising comfort or insulation - the 7cm is pretty standard for airbeds and provides a good level of comfort whereas the R-Value is appropriate for three season camping. Weight is shaved by the mummy profile, mummy shaped mats are less easy to live with than rectangular ones but its a relatively painless compromise if you are determined to save weight.
