What's In A Name?

Innovative and lightweight, the Exped SynMat HL Sleeping Pad offers dependable warmth and comfort—without weighing down your pack. The SynMat HL features a tapered design that's built to fit in a variety of tents, including 1-person sleeping accommodations, in turn making the SynMat an ideal companion for fast-and-light, 3-season adventures. 20D fabric keeps the weight to a minimum, without sacrificing durability, while the anti-slip GripSkin coating prevents you from sliding around on your pad in the middle of the night. Additionally, the laminate is air tight and hydrolysis resistant. The microfiber insulation provides dependable warmth (up to 21.2F), and the included Schnozzel Pumpbag ensures that you're able to inflate the mat with ease. Not to mention, the Schnozzel Pumpbag is designed as such that you don't have to waste your breath huffing and puffing into your mat, and as a result, the pump prevents humidity from affecting the effectiveness of the insulation.

Wow. What a piece of 💩. I don’t often review products but I had to give 1 star on this. You are better off buying a $5 pool floaty. I literally got 5 holes in this in my first camp trip with it. Sticks must have punctured it through the tent. Not durable AT ALL. Stay away.

That sounds like “user-error” because I’ve used this for over 500 nights with no issue including 2 months camped throughout the desert of the Baja. It is important to be sure that your tent is setup where there are no sticks or burrs to puncture the floor.

I use a polycro ground cloth though some ltwt backpackers swear by tyvek. I had one puncture in 750 miles of section hiking the PCT one year and again one in 750 miles a year later. Overall pleased with product and I believe the 2021 version will be better. That said I own a heavier NEMO that failed the first day. LW size Tensor. It's really a bit of a crap shoot on these inflatable lightweight products sad to say. Not even Thermarest makes a bombproof product.

Quiet ultralite backpack option

I've used it several times

Now that I'm a bit older, I like some comfort when backpacking so I can sleep well and enjoy the outdoors. I have several brands of pads and this is my new fave for either car camping or backpacking. It's small, incredibly light, fast & easy to inflate w/ the oversized bag, 1 1/2 fills, which doubles as waterproof storage and can be used on other pads with (might take a little muscle & creativity but it works). It makes very little noise when you shift during sleeping, and the valve allows for micro adjustments to fine-tune your sleeping comfort. Well worth the investment and space savings!

It works

I've put it through the wringer

I've used this all summer, including on a 24 day canoe trip north of the Arctic Circle. Comfortable and warm enough. Best if not completely inflated. Didn't leak. Can't be beat for size and weight.
