Weighing just over a pound and delivering an incredibly warm R-value of 7.0, the inflatable Exped DownMat WinterLite redefines the expectations of backpackers who are used to having to make some compromise between weight and warmth.
The DownMat WinterLite employs innovative I-beam baffles to provide 3.5” of comfortable support. A warm layer of down insulation laminated directly to the bottom and top of each baffled air chamber eliminates cold spots and equips the pad for year-round performance. Tapered shaping helps to save on weight and also enables two of the pads to be situated next to each other for gap-free pairing.
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 DownMat WinterLite 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. Exped includes a Schnozzel Pumpbag UL which saves you from huffing and puffing during inflation and keeps potentially destructive moisture from finding its way into the interior of the pad.
The Exped DownMat WinterLite sleeping pad is available in Medium (72” x 20.5"), Medium/Wide (72" x 25.6") and Long/Wide (77.6" x 25.6") lengths. Each pad includes a stuff sack and a repair kit.

- Warm Pad!
Likes: Incredible 7.0 R Rating! Very warm and love the mummy shape for use with my hammock. It was a bonus that the pump was included and it is very easy to inflate once you do it a few times. I'm looking forward to using it this winter.
Dislikes: A little on the bulky side and takes a few times to master getting it rolled up and stuffed back in the sack. I recommend watching exped's video on this pad and folding it into thirds. Not a huge fan of the vertical baffles, but that is a personal preference.
