Big Man this is the only pad for me

I've put it through the wringer

My family has 4 downmats. ; 2-7; 2-9XL; used backpacking, easy to repair while on the trail, but u have to find the pinhole. Used last winter tent camping for a week.woth temps in the teens n 20’’s at night. Bought in off season for better prices. Perfect for cold weather camping.

Bring on Winter!

I've used it several times

This is my 2nd Exped, and much like the SynMat 7 I own, this seems to be built well, warm and comfortable. During it's first 4 nights of use it never got below 40, but I can already tell it's adding warmth in a big way. I'm normally a sleeping bag zipped up guy, but didn't zip it once this past trip. Moreover, just resting your hand on the bare pad is enough to feel, within a few seconds, how warm and reflective of heat this pad really is. I have no question as to whether or not it'll hold up in zub-zero camping conditions later this winter. After borrowing my brother's long/wide pad, I knew I was, in choosing an L/W over a regular, was opting for more space/weight. I'm ok with the little bit of added carrying burden for the pure comfort this pad brings to the table. Having the schnozzel pumpbag was great. Taking only 7 or so pushes, it replaces minutes of blowing, which means I'm also not injecting hot, moist air into it in Mid February. Solid idea here that plays out well in the real world scenario. I was bummed that it didn't fit onto my SynMat to use on that as well. I'm a side/back sleeper and much like other thicker air pads, this is comfy and brings side sleeping to camping. Between the extra heat, space and loft I slept like a baby. I'm not sure how you could create a warmer or more comfortable pad without adding size and weight. My only 2 gripes with this pad aren't even with the pad...they're with the included storage sack. -While it isn't HARD to get it rolled back up and into its stuff sack, it needs to be done perfect to fit well. It's harder than other pads I've owned which isn't a big deal at home...but when it's 6am and you're in -10 degree weather with 2 other people in a tiny tent I could see it being frustrating. I just think it needed a slightly bigger stuff sack. -The stuff sack it came with is extremely fragile and while taking the pad out to test it at home, before it'd even been used, the pocket w/ repair kit pulled loose. I understand it's just a stuff sack, but anything over the $200 mark should include a case that's meant to stick around longer than day 1

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.

Great mat

I've used it several times

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!
