Exped Airmat Basic UL 7.5 -

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.


  • R-value of all uninsulated air mats, like AirMat 7.5, can be enhanced by placing a fleece jacket or other clothing under the mat
  • 20 denier laminated polyester fabric is ultralight, airtight and humidity resistant
  • Constructed with 20 denier fabric for an even lighter and compact mat
  • Durable 20D polyester fabric withstands your tossing and turning while camping cowboy-style
  • Brushed top feels smooth to the touch and provides a little insulation while bottom laminated fabric resist humidity coming up from the ground
  • Shell top surface is brushed polyester fabric that provides excellent slip resistance and comfort next to the skin

Support and Cushioning:

  • Great for warmer climates where cushioning is the primary need

Weather and Wind:

  • High-frequency welded seams ensure the mat remains inflatable for years


  • Pump needed for inflation but NOT included
  • FlatValve Technology - separate inflation and deflation valves
  • Welded-through baffles for affordability and weight reduction
  • Flat valves do not protrude
  • Mouth inflation or use with Exped pump accessories: Pillow Pump, Mini Pump, or Schnozzel and Exped Shrink Bag
  • Low profile FlatValves (pat. pend), one for inflation and the other for deflation
  • Exped accessory pump recommended for inflation
  • Included stuff sack enables safe and easy storage while a repair kit, adhesive, and patches prepare you for knife-juggling accidents
  • Uninsulated for maximum weight reduction and a compact package
  • FlatValves are built into the top of the mat, ensuring a low-profile inflation-deflation system that doesn't snag and break easily
  • Exped's proprietary lamination process - air tight and hydrolysis proof
The rocky, root-riddled ground beneath your tent doesn't encourage good sleep, but the Exped AirMat Basic UL 7.5 Sleeping Pad provides insulated cushioning for maximizing your time in snoozeville. Best for summer car camping or short backpacking trips, this tough mat improves your camping experience no matter where you decide to roll out your sleeping bag.


Exped's Airmat Basic UL is even lighter and more compact pad than the popular Airmat Basic.

When sleeping comfort is a must but insulation isn't, the AirMat Basic UL 7.5 is the right tool for the job. Ultralight construction and uninsulated, this mat is designed for summer conditions and warm nights. Slip a fleece jacket under the mat for added insulation! Sizes:

Love this

We have used this for motorcycle camping and it was awesome. When we got home after several days, the bed didn't feel any better. Easy to blow up by mouth, it is sturdy and is so comfortable!! Anyone who wants something lightweight and comfortable, this is it. It is expensive, but is worth the price.

Negative Reviews:

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.

Flimsy valves

Lightweight & seems tough enough. My wife & I use these for kayak camping on coastal Everglades & elsewhere in FL. This pad is much smaller & lighter than Exped's higher end products such as the Synmat & Downmat series. It would be an excellent product for the price, but the valves, more specifically, the anti-reversing flap is too flimsy. One of ours has developed a hole in it, the flap that is, after just a few uses. Because these anti-reversing flaps are so light weight, they can also bend in half, which, of course, lets all the air out.

I bought it and now i think that it was not good idea. It is very small packed and lightweight but at fact:
My wife said that her back start to ache.
When i was in Crimea, Ukraine i have put it on the dry grass and after that it had 24 holes
