Providing unmatched warmth and comfort for 4-season backpacking, the innovative Exped DownMat 9 inflatable sleeping pad has a toasty R-value of 8.0 and its own built-in pump. Insulated with high-performance 750+ fill goose down, the DownMat 9 ensures a comfortable night of sleep regardless of the temperature.
The DownMat 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 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 9 is Exped's flat valve 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 9's flat valves eliminate the stiff edge commonly found around traditional valves. This results in lasting, durable valve construction for the life of the pad.
Each DownMat 9 has its own integrated built-in hand pump. Why fuss with blowing up the pad manually when you can let the pump do the work for you? This feature also saves you from introducing potentially destructive moisture into the interior of the pad. Adding additional value, each DownMat 9 includes its own stuff sack and field repair kit.
The Exped DownMat 9 is available in Medium (72" x 21") and Long/Wide (78" x 26") lengths.
Real Customer Reviews
Likes: Super comfortable pad. This replaced a self-inflating pad and is so much nicer.
Dislikes: Little bit heavy and I considered a UL model but decided on this for better durability.
Likes: Loved almost everything about the pad. Slept like a baby. I woke up and my back was feeling great! Still a little nervous about the fabric due to worrying about a puncture but that goes with the territory.
Dislikes: I do wish the pad could be a little bit lighter.
Likes: Slept on the snow in the teens and never felt cold, didn't bottom out on my shoulders or hips (sidesleeper), and didn't even notice all the lumps that I usually spend half the first night smoothing out. Wish I would have bought this sooner, worth the price.
