UOG TOP PICK - Exped's Downmat Ultralight 7 Series Sleeping Mats - Best for Comfort and Warmth - We've singled out Exped's Downmat Ultralight 7 Series Sleeping Mats as one of our top recommendations because they offer one of the highest insulation values of any mat combined with comfort features such as oversized edge tubes and rectangular shape.
This the ultralight version of the DownMat sporting identically high R-Values. Yet weight and packed size are in a league of their own. Inflation is fast and easy with the Schnozzel Pumpbag that doubles as a waterproof compression bag.
The goose down filling reduces heatloss dramatically. And the thick air cushioning combined with the lightweight polyester fabric is super comfortable and balances out any unevenness of the ground. As down is the most compressible filling with the highest loft properties it creates a phenomenally warm and compact mat.
Separators between the down filled baffles unlike traditional airmats design prevent cold spots and create thick stable and extremely comfortable cushioning.
Smart inflation sack included: The Schnozzel Pumpbag enambles swift inflation without moisture reaching the down as would be the case with lung inflation. It can also be used as a waterproof compression packsack. Welded baffles between the down filled chambers unlike traditional airmats eliminate cold spots and create a comfortably supportive and stable air cushion.
Industry Award 2011: The DownMat UL barely made it out of the design room when it won the coveted Outdoor Industry Award. It also received the Editor’s Choice from the German Outdoor Magazine and the Gold Award from the Dutch Op Pad outdoor magazine.
You can`t argue with the facts - the Exped Downmats are seriously warm and as they are essentially airbeds they are very comfortable as well. If you sleep cold or want a mat that can be used in cold weather then the Downmat or this Downmat Ultralight would be a good choice.
Comes complete with Schnozzel pumpsack and stuffsack.

||||Oversized side tubes - The side tubes of a downmat are slightly oversize so that the user is cradled in the mat making it less likely that they will roll off.|
||||Inflates using pumpsack or other pump - In order to avoid getting any moisture in the down filled baffles the Downmat Ultralights are supplied with a Schnozzel Pumpsack.|
