The self inflating Exped MegaMat 10 self inflating sleeping pad delivers luxurious camping comfort in any season. Due to 3.9" thick sidewalls, the MegaMat 10 has an incredible R-value or 9.5 and a temperature rating of -54 degrees Fahrenheit!
The Exped MegaMat 10 Sleeping Mat is the ultimate in plush comfort. You have got 10 centimeters of insulation here. You have got a plush, open cell foam core on the inside here, so it gives it a really, really comfortable sleeping base and then you have got just a lot of clearance off of the ground with this inflatable sleeping mat.
The dimensions here on the MegaMat 10, 77.6 inches long, 30.3 inches wide and about 3.9 inches thick when it is actually inflated. So plenty of sprawling room for one camper on this mat.
Since you have that open cell foam on the inside, that expands, you have got two valves here. You have an inflate and a deflate valve and you open the inflate valve and that foam on the inside expands a little bit, so it brings air in. So even though this is such a big, sprawling mat, that foam is going to do some of the work for you on inflation. You do get a mini pump with this system so, you know, once you have let this inflate part of the way on its own, you do need to top it off. You can inflate this by mouth. You can use the mini pump that comes with it and it is pretty simple. You just attach this side to the inflation valve. There is a valve here that you actually cover with your hand and that is going to push air into the mat. So this is just foam. This packs up to be nice and small. So you can bring it with you and that is just going to aid in not introducing that moist air from your breath into the pad. So that definitely helps. Or you could purchase some Exped accessories like a pump bag or something like that to inflate the pad. But other than that inflation is pretty easy for how big and sprawling this pad is. And then when you are ready to deflate the pad, you just open up that deflate valve. Since these valves are flat valves they are very easy to use and they are out of the way, so, you know, once you open that valve, all the air escapes. You are able to roll it up and pack it down.
Now this definitely isn’t a backpacking option. It packs down into this stuff sack right here. So if you are just car camping, if you are traveling, you know, taking it to the camp ground where you don’t have to, you know, take your equipment very far from your car, this is a perfect option. It would even be a great spare bed for guests for use in your house. And because it does pack down to be pretty small here, you can store it away at home very easily.
The other things that it comes with, you get a field repair kit which gives glue and a couple of patches there. You have instructions in there as well. And there is a coupler kit. So if you buy two of these Exped Mats, they stack up next to each other really well because of those side walls. So this coupler kit is, you know, premeasured for the size of the Exped mats so you can put two next to each other so that they don’t kind of go away from each other while you are sleeping on them. So this is a great option for family camping. You can put a couple of these in your tent and have just sprawling room for everyone in the family.
The weight here is around 90 ounces and just some other features. All of the seams on this mat are high frequency welded seams. Since it is such a big mat, you do need to have that airtight, that durable, airtight seal. So they do a really good job of making it durable.
The fabric on the top here is really comfortable. It is a really comfortable next to skin so you don’t necessarily have to have something, a sheet or something on top. You know, it is really comfortable there. And it is a very silent pad. So unlike some inflatable pads that sound crunchy or really loud while you are sleeping on them, this is very silent and it just has a really, really comfortable foam cover here.
The sidewalls are really nice because they are flat. So some sleeping pads they have kind of a rounded side, which don’t allow you to utilize the full length or the full width of the pad, but since these side walls are vertical, you have got all the sprawling comfort that you need on this whole pad. With all the accessories that it comes with and with that 10 centimeter clearance from the ground, you are going to have an excellent night’s sleep for all seasons throughout the year. It is the Exped MegaMat 10.
