New for 2014! With an R-value of 3.8, the Exped SynMat Lite 5 sleeping pad and its warm microfiber insulation and lightweight packability allow even ounce-counting backpackers to enjoy confident comfort for 3+ season use.
The SynMat Lite 5 employs separated air chambers with welded-through baffles to provide 2.0 inches of comfortable support, while raised air-only outer cells keep you centered on the pad. High-performance 75-denier fabric is air tight, slip proof and offers both UV and abrasion resistance. A layer of synthetic microfiber insulation laminated to the bottom and top of each baffled air chamber eliminates cold spots and allows for maximum loft.
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. The SynMat Lite 5 features a single FlatValve for inflation and deflation. Many inflatable sleeping pads fail due to their valve construction, but Exped's FlatValve technology eliminates the stiff edge commonly found around traditional valves. This results in lasting, durable valve construction for the life of the pad.
The Exped SynMat Lite 5 is available in Medium (72" x 20"), Large (77.5" x 20") and Long/Wide (77.5" x 26") sizes. It can be inflated by mouth or with Exped pump accessories such as the Exped Pillow Pump or Exped Schnozzel (each sold separately). Adding additional value, each SynMat Lite 5 includes its own stuff sack and field repair kit.
Sizes available: Long, Long/Wide, Medium
