New for 2013! Providing unmatched warmth and comfort for 4-season backpacking, the innovative Exped DownMat XP 9 inflatable sleeping pad has a toasty R-value of 8.0. Insulated with high-performance 700-fill goose down, the DownMat XP 9 ensures a comfortable night of sleep regardless of the temperature.
The DownMat XP 9 employs separated air chambers to provide 3.5 inches of comfortable support. Top-of-the-line laminated polyester fabric is air tight, slip proof and offers both UV and abrasion resistance. A layer of goose down insulation laminated to the bottom and top of each baffled air chamber eliminates cold spots. Exped uses only IDFL-certified goose down that is specially treated to eliminate the negative effects of humidity. Lightweight horizontal foam blocks at either end of the pad prevent down from escaping or migrating between chambers. The combined thickness of the DownMat XP 9 and the insulation lend the pad a year round-worthy R-value of 8.0, making the pad ideal for winter use and snow camping.
Glues used in sleeping pad construction are often broken down by moisture, but Exped's proprietary fabric lamination process creates air tight baffles and prevents moisture build up in the pad from destroying these glues, resulting in no loss of air over time. Another stand out feature of the DownMat XP 9 is Exped's FlatValve construction. Separate valves for inflation and deflation offer a high volume of air flow in and out of the pad making inflating and deflating the pad fast and easy. Many inflatable sleeping pads fail due to their valve construction, but the DownMat XP 9's FlatValves eliminate the stiff edge commonly found around traditional valves. This results in lasting, durable valve construction for the life of the pad.
The Exped DownMat XP 9 is available in Medium (72" x 20") and Long/Wide (77.5" x 26") lengths. Each pad includes a Schnozzel Pumpbag for the most reliable inflation in extreme cold, a stuff sack and a repair kit.
