Buy the Schnozzle Pumpbag

  • Gender: Male

I have a Reg UL and a LW UL and I wouldn't go any where with out one. If I'm hiking or kayaking with my OR Advanced Bivy I use the regular size as it gives me a little more room, otherwise I use my LW for everything else. I like the extra comfit of the LW. I would highly recommend getting the schnozzle pump bag. I also have a Synmat7 Reg with the built in pump and using the pump bag I can fill the LW UL in a quater of the time it takes me to pump up the Synmat. You can also use the pumpbag as a dry bag to keep your mat in while hiking. I have had the reg UL for over a year and have used it in some pretty nasty places with just a tarp and no ground sheet (expecting to wake up on hard ground) but still no punctures. The material is a lot tougher than it looks. In summer I use a Therm-a-rest fitted sheet on my mats (a lot cheaper and easier to purchase than the Exped fitted sheets) as I don't like the mat material touching my skin, it can get a little clammy but the fitted sheet fixes that issue.
Great year round mat.
