Oversized to accommodate larger sleepers or those who like to sprawl out, the Exped SynMat 9 inflatable sleeping pad is designed specifically for four-season usage. A built-in pump makes inflation incredibly simple and microfiber insulation improves the excellent cold-weather performance of the SynMat 9.

Measuring 77.6" x 25.6", the SynMat 9 employs air chambers to provide 3.5" of comfortable support. High-performance laminated polyester fabric is air tight, slip proof and offers both UV and abrasion resistance. A layer of microfiber insulation is laminated to the bottom and top of each baffled air chamber. The combined thickness of the SynMat 9 and the insulation lend the pad an R-value of 6.0, making it a stand-out choice for cold-weather usage.

Each Exped SynMat 9 has its own integrated built-in pump. Why fuss with blowing up the pad manually when you can let the pump do the work for you? Adding additional value, each SynMat 9 includes its own stuff sack and field repair kit.

  • Texped loft microfiber insulation durably laminated to top and bottom of mat
  • Flat valve technology eliminates traditional valve malfunction issues
  • Integrated pump technology speeds inflation time and eliminates oral inflation
  • 3.5-inch thickness

Likes: Needed a pad for a bigger guy, 260 pounds. Tried on hard wood floor and went on my side my hips did not touch, so good as I was going to try one of the back packing cots. built in pump is nice and works pretty fast.

Dislikes: none

Likes: Like that it has built in pump. Very comfortable. Seems to have a good R value too. Packs up quite small although maybe not for backpacking but I use on motorcycle trips. Has repair kit and a 5 year warranty.

Dislikes: Not a complete fan of air mats.

Great Sleeping Pad

Likes: I purchased this to fit inside my new Eagles Nest Outfitters DoubleNest Hammock. I'm an extremely big guy, and this thing gives me great support and insulation.

When placed on terra firma, I can lie comfortable on my side without fear of making contact with the ground. Additionally, with the unique hand inflation system, I don't have worry about introducing moisture from my breath into the mattress.

Yes, it's a little pricey, but my philosophy is: everything I buy has to have quality, or I'm not wasting money on it

Dislikes: Nothing

Likes: Very warm, comfortable, durable material, light, the ultimate sleeping pad.

Dislikes: Hand pump is more of a novelty

Reviewed by Inside Edge Member - August 20, 2013

Likes: This sleeping bag is very comfortable. My being a larger guy in the 280 range, I'm always worried about durability on these things. While I haven't used it extensively yet in the field, based on its quality, I would be surprised to see it break down under normal conditions.

The pump is nice, but not super efficient. I found it easier to blow it up most of the way and finish it off with the pump. I do think the built in pump is pretty genius though in its design.

This is simply a well built mat.

Dislikes: It is a little on the heavy side. For the Long Wide version, mine is sitting at right around 2 1/2 lbs. You're certainly sacrificing some weight and size for durability on this one. It doesn't get super compact either at 11 x 6.

Originally I bought this for backpacking, not checking the weight or size, and I will still keep it for car camping or house guests. For backpacking I might try and shave a pound and save some space in my pack and go with the SynMat 7 UL, although, being thinner and lighter, may break down easier for a larger guy like myself. We'll try it out for a bit though and see how it goes in the field.
