The AirMat 7.5 UL from Exped is the latest in lightweight, packable comfort for your outdoor and travel sleeping needs. With foam-filled chambers, the AirMat 7.5 UL is different from other air mats, giving you more insulation so you can sleep warm without hauling a lot of weight in your pack or suitcase. When your sleeping bag is the place to be, simply inflate with your mouth so you can get to bed sooner. If you're worried about moisture, the Exped Pillow Pump and other inflation accessories (sold separately) will also work, so you can enjoy a good night's rest with less fuss!
Lightweight and compact, the Exped AirMat Basic UL 7.5 Inflatable sleeping pad is designed for ounce-counting backpackers. Designed primarily for summer or warm-weather use, the rectangular AirMat Basic UL 7.5 sleeping pad packs down incredibly small to take up very little space in your backpack.

It's small, light, easy to pack and feels like a pool toy.
I've been looking for a perfect summer sleeping mat, and so far this is the worst I've tried. The welded through baffles and the general stretch of the thin materials make it impossible to get the mat comfortable. Either you can inflate it 100%, and sleep uncomfortably on a hard mat - or you can fill it up 70-90% which leaves your hips on the ground and the skinny baffles poking your side/belly/back.
Notice compared to the Synmat UL 7, this only has 6 baffles (compared to 8) which are welded completely through. Which means basically, don't get this pad unless you're planning on sleeping on your back and not moving. Otherwise your hips and shoulders will hit the ground. I am 5'11" 170 pounds.
Just carry the extra 6 ounces and get the synmat UL 7, which is heads and shoulders above this piece of garbage.
