Exped Downmat UL 7 -
The Exped DownMat UL is the ultra light version of the regular DownMat. Filled with goose down, the Exped DownMat provides serious insulation on cold ground. It also has a thick layer of air cushioning to provide comfort on just about any uneven surface. Lightweight polyester fabric is durable and comfortable. The sleeping pad comes with a Schnozzel Pumpbag for easy and quick inflation. The pumpbag also doubles as a waterproof compression bag, making the mat easy to store and transport. Other design features of the DownMat UL include down-filled baffles to prevent cold spots and two flat valves. The baffles keep the cushioning as stable as possible, so it always feels comfortably thick. The flat design of the air valves makes them durable. Moisture resistant fabric and a slip-resistant design keep the pad dry and keep a sleeping bag from sliding around at night. The DownMat UL has an R-value of 5.9, which is more than twice as warm as a regular mat of the same thickness. The mat is so warm that many campers find they need lighter sleeping bags than they would with another mat.

Exped Downmat UL 7 Reviews:


The best things about this pad are the thickness, down, warmth, weight, stuff sack pump, and vertical baffles. The pad is nice and thick, so that any frozen rocks in the ground don't dig into your back. The down on the inside makes the pad nice and warm for those cold winter nights. This is lighter than the regular downmat, so I can use it for overnight snowshoeing or ski touring trips. Stuff sack pump inflates the pad in a very short amount of time. It makes it so much nicer not having to huff and puff to blow up your mattress. The inflate and deflate valves are one way, so that the air you put in won't come out the inflate, yet the air you push out through the deflate valve won't rush back in. The vertical baffles help keep you on the pad, which is nice. My two gripes are that the deflate valve sometimes gets a little stuck, so the pad doesn't deflate very quickly, and that the stuff sack for the pad is very difficult to get the pad back into. Other than that, great buy.

After a season of use, I can truely say that this is far beyond what I expected. This has been used during long summer hikes, winterskiing in tents and snow caves, and in temperatures down to -20C, I have never been cold, and it is super comfy. Takes a while to fill with air, but the waiting time is well worth it! Reccomendable!

Who need's bowling balls and glasses of wine? Just put two DownMats on the floor and be done with it! Snow, check. Ice, check. Surface of Pluto, check. This mat is warm, light, comfy, sleek . . . you get the idea. If you're going to be on snow, near snow, thinking about snow than this is the pad.

Al Heeya at Backcountry.com on 05/31/2012

I loved the ease of the stuff sack pump, it was even easy at 21000 ft. Three inflations and voila... Loved the mat, but don't heat it up in the sun or have it soft and kneel on it. The baffles can become unglued and then it sucks....

Greg Hill at Backcountry.com on 10/29/2012

I tried this pad on a recent trip and loved it. It is lightweight enough and it is SOOOO comfortable. It is thick so the terrain doesn't mess with your back while you sleep. The only downside is the price, but it is worth it.

Bernardo Gomez at Backcountry.com on 09/30/2013

The Schnozzle bag makes this a piece of cake to inflate, and it's about as warm and comfy as they come. I feel like I'm on my mattress at home when I sleep on this thing. Love it.

abgp535597 at Backcountry.com on 06/17/2013

I really like the inflation system and it is supper comfy! I have to say I haven't used it in the snow yet but will this summer in the Mountains.
