    Not For Everyone

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    Other than an inexpensive air mattress that I had in college and a deluxe, queen size air mattress that required an electric pump to fill, I've never owned an air mattress that was, supposedly, this high quality or specifically intended for outdoor use. However, of those two mattresses, the inexpensive one from college was, by far, the most comfortable.

    Fast forward to the present day and I needed something versatile, that's warm for outdoor use, easy to setup, light and would be comfortable for indoor use as well. Exped seemed to meet all of those requirements, but by the end of my three day trial, it had nearly crippled me.

    I'm 6'0, 210 lbs. I have some issues with my back that I'm able to manage via regular strength training and stretching/yoga. I tend to prefer a semi-firm mattress, so I filled the Exped as full as I could, laid it out on the floor in my bedroom and tested it for three nights. I woke up each morning with my back worse than the day before. Finally, on the third day, I was so hobbled, I had to sit in a massage chair for 1.5 hours just so I could walk somewhat normally.

    I honestly don't know what the fuss is all about. Down-lined? OK, it might have been a little warmer than the mattress I remember from college, but I still required a heavy blanket (and again, this mattress was used indoors, on a carpeted floor, where the temperature didn't drop below 64 degrees (inside).)

    I can pretty much sleep in any position (I'm one of those rare people who can sleep comfortably on a plane without a pillow), though my favorite is to start out on my stomach. Over the three days I had this mattress, I slept on my stomach, my back and tried to sleep on my sides. Side sleeping was simply too uncomfortable.

    As far as actual sleeping goes, I was able to get 3-4 hours of solid sleep each night. After that, the discomfort woke me up every 30 minutes.

    There is no way I would ever use this pad on a hiking trip. I would be exhausted and crippled after four days.

    Other than that, I was able to inflate the mattress easily within 10 minutes or less, the plugs worked perfectly, it never seemed to lose pressure and it was easy to deflate and pack up.

    Great winter mat.

      Not sure what Junk is talking about but I love this mat. I use it strictly for winter and pitch it directly on snow, both bivy and in a tent. The down is super warm and I don't need a thermarest back-up, which is something I use for my other mats. It inflates/deflates in about 1 minute. I also use the inflater bag as a waterproof bag when I pack. I little heavy to carry but my zzz's are more important. This pad is flawless in my opinion.


      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      wow the price of this stupid thing went up wow! DONT BUY THIS PAD!!!!!!! it will take you 30min to pump the stupid thing up and then the air plug will pop off all night then when it gets cold the glue that holds the chambers together will come undone and you will have a 300 doller blob thing that will buck you off if you try and sleep on it. this is just some new company that is way way over priced and make crap pads............. lol 300 bucks that is a joke and a slap in the face. -5 stars

      Totally agree - purchased what we thought were top quality down filled products. Both mats leaked - returned to shop. One was patched the other replaced. We have looked after the mats exactly as advised, Now the chamber have come apart - one totally so it looks like a huge pillow and the other in the centre so cannot sleep on it with a big ridge down the full length of the mat. We live in the tropics - maybe the heat causes the chambers to come apart. If so there should be a warning on the label - AVOID USING IN TROPICAL CLIMATES. Absolutely disgusted and would advise anyone to avoid the products.

      Great mat

      I have been searching for a pad that I can use for winter camping as well for a long while now. Ever since I backpacked into -15 degree temperatures with a down bag and only a half ultra-light pad I swore I would never do it again. So?I bought a Therma-rest neo air which was nice but bounced me too much among other things. Did some research and decided to give the down mat a go. WOW. This thing is great. Its comfortable and warm. When I say warm I mean when you lay on it, it feels like its heated because it reflects your own body heat so well. Its like taking your bed mattress with you when you hike. The only down side (pun not intended) its a little weighty but that really can?t be avoided. Im also not impressed with the valve that is not supposed to let air back in when you are trying to roll it up. My valve fails and doesn't stop the air from being sucked back in if you have to walk away while rolling it up. -1 star for it. Other than that, great design and well made.

      Exped website lists prices as 249 and 269...

      Exped website lists prices as 249 and 269 respectively. Are the prices listed here a misprint?

      I assume they have the markup for some reason, though I have no idea what it might be. Backcountry is generally pretty good about price matching though. If you chat with one of the gearheads (link top and center of the page) and show them where you found the cheaper price I bet they could work something out that would be agreeable to you. Cheers!
