Where have you been all my life?

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Spent 5 nights in the High Uinta's in Utah last week. Rained every day and night. Cold temperatures at night. 6'2' 205. I bought the LW synmat 9. Wow!!!! I am a side sleeper. never got close to hitting the ground on my side. Amazingly comfortable. I didn't go with the UL because of price. Weight was fine for backpacking. Comfort was awesome. shared a plastic tarp tent with my boys and on the last night there were rocks under my side of the tent. Couldn't even tell when I was on the mat. 3.5 inches of heaven. Love the durability of the synmat 9LW. Would love to see how the UL feels, but will not be trading in my pad.

Great pad

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have used it in mid-winter as well as in cool summer weather and it is the best pad I have ever tried. I am 177 cm (about 5'10") and have the medium sized pad. Sometimes I wish I would have gotten the large wide one since it can be a little short, especially when your feet goes outside the mat in the winter, but usually it's fine.
I would also say that it's a more or less HAVE TO to get the chair kit as well. Camping at its finest!

Best Compact Sleeping Pad On the Market

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The difference between the synthetic down and regular down doesn't matter really at all unless you're winter camping. This sleeping pad is incredibly comfortable, highly compact, and easy to use. The built in hand pump is phenomenal, and everybody will be jealous of your sick pad.

Love the self-inflating feature.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The main reason I got this pad is because I hate getting to the campsite and spending the entire time pumping up my pad. This pad has an awesome self pumping feature that really saves you time and hassle. It really works! Took me 15 minutes max, probably closer to 10 minutes to pump it up.

7 Pump LW

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I went with the 7 Pump/LW as I am a bigger guy (5'10", 195lbs) and it provides great padding and insulation for me in cold weather. I have spent the last two weeks in Yakima, WA and temps have ranged from 15 degrees up to 40 degrees and I have had plenty of insulation. This pad has been a moneymaker as I am accustomed to using my Army Issue sleep pad.

all of models (7 and 9) works very well...

all of models (7 and 9) works very well in four season?
it's comes with a n external pump?
thank

Responded on

These mats are both insulated with lofted microfiber insulation on the top and bottom, so they will perform splendidly in any of the seasonal weather you may encounter while out in the wild.
Regarding the pump, it is not a separate device or instrument; rather, the pump is built in to the mat itself, so you don't have to worry about carrying around some superfluous piece of equipment that you could potentially break or lose. Moreover, the fact that it is a built in pump helps protect against possible ice crystal formation as a result of manual pulmonary inflation that could form inside the mat when using it in colder climates. In this way, Exped has truly designed a spectacular piece of backcountry sleeping gear.
Hope this helps.

Comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

super comfortable, warm, and easy to inflate. little bit heavy, but for use in winter conditions it is needed.

So comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I was a little uncomfortable spending so much money on a sleeping pad... Then I spent one night on it and I was quite comfortable. I slept through the night and did not wake up until the sun hit my eyes, a rare feat for me while camping. Usually I roll around and wake up feeling unrested. Now I wake up camping and feel so rested, almost like im in my own bed. Its very compact and the built in hand pump works well. highly recommend

Fantastic sleeping pad!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The size of this bag makes it easy to take backpacking. It is relatively light weight as well. The incorporated (or built-in) pump makes it easy to set up and get ready. It is comfortable so it definitely helps in getting some needed rest after your day's journey. I totally recommend it, I have bought an additional one to complete a pair.

Great Sleeping Pad

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have had some poor experiences with sleeping pads before ( ie: one too many times of waking up cold and on the ground) so I decided to try this one. I'm a huge fan of the integrated hand pump in the mat. It's effective and easy to use. I really like the one way valves. It makes it much easier to roll up the mat when air can only escape and not get back into the mat. While I haven't tried it in cold weather, it has done a great job so far.

Synmat 9LW = camping luxury

I had an REI 3.5L mat used for car camping, staying over at a friend's place, extra mat for friends and those ski lease occasions when I didn't get a bed. I didn't like the rolled size and fortunately a friend screwed it up. So I went looking for a replacement =)

I ruled out the NeoAir because of the noisy crinkling and how light of a sleeper I am. I thought long and hard about the 7LW (6-3 230), but I ended up with a Synmat 9LW. The 9LW adds about 2" in diameter to the 7's rolled size. That's still much smaller than my down sleeping bag or the old mat.

The instructions said to lay it out w/ the values open for 24 hours. Afterwards, I inflated it and laid on it. It felt really warm. Inflation seems fine. The air lasted 4 days before I decided to deflate it.

Inflation takes a few minutes of giving it CPR, but the one way valve makes it easy enough to take a break if you really have to. I've seen some negative deflation time comments, but I've been used to the two phase tear-down: accordion folds + sitting on it -> a final roll up. The only complaint I can give is that both inflation and deflation are noisy. Think of deflation like a whoopie cushion.

I have used this in a walk-in Tahoe camping trip. It was in the low 30s at night and my friends told me they were freezing. I was fine in a non-mummy 25 bag. I slept in on the last day and woke up because of the heat... go figure. Also, I couldn't find a flat place to setup camp and noticed the 15-20 degree incline while on the mat. It was fixable by sticking clothes under the shoulder side.

Awesome!!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This pad is really comfortable, and very easy to pump up. I wouldn't hit a weekend trek without it. Although it seems to be a little on the heavy side, it's well worth it's weight in comfort once you rest your body on it. Happy Trails!!

Whoa...happy back!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Coming from an aging, (gracefully I must add), minimalist, I can assure everyone that the benefits to one's back after a night of rest on this pad far outweigh the costs of carrying it. And to address its toughness, on the first morning after using this pad I was preparing breakfast when I heard the squeals of laughter coming from the tent from my 2.5 year old boy. I thought to myself how wonderful it was to hear those sounds of joy until I realized that those were the same squeals I hear when he is bouncing on our bed at home. The pad survived the trampoline test with flying colors. Ken

Best pad ever!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have owned many-a-pad and this by far takes the cake. The built in pump is genius, the material is tuff and the comfort is freakin awesome. I treated myself to this for my b-day and I am planning on getting one for the wife now. I would recommend this product!

Slept on the bare dirt with this and no pin holes..

Tempur-Pedic BE JEALOUS

  • Gender: Male

I'm really not kidding: this is the most comfortable pad I have ever slept on. I own the Long/Wide version and wow this thing is huge. I would actually recommend you getting the M size so it can fit into a bivy sack with less hassle and because this thing is already quite heavy. Yes, this thing is heavy. For my purposes of alpine mountaineering, I value my sleeping pad and pillow (yes, I bring a pillow) more than any technical shell I can buy. If I don't sleep well, I will be so sluggish the next day that no Arc'Teryx shell or La Sportiva boots can save me.
For those reasons, I love this pad. The SynMat 9 is just overkill for most purposes but the SynMat 7 M is a great choice. If you want something lighter and just as warm, take a look at the Therm-a-Rest All Season NeoAir (R-4.9) but it won't be as comfortable. Still, I would recommend this Exped pad.

Value your sleep. Get this pad!

New favorite pad!

I have the synmat 7 pump and have been using it for a little over a year; no complaints yet! It is like sleeping on a cloud as others have said and a huge improvement over my thermrest prolite plus, that extra inch is a big surprise!

The pump is nice and takes in the surrounding air and not your hot breath allowing it to hold in air better. The pump takes a bit getting use to, but once you find the right rhythm it inflates fast (about 1 min). The material is durable too. I use this year round and don't get too hot.
