A versatile option for stand-alone use in mild temperatures or for use in tandem with another pad to bolster warmth for 4-season use, the unique Exped SynCellMat 5 is durable, stable, and comfortable.
The SynCellMat 5 has a unique quilted design that better conforms to the contours of your body than traditional air baffles. The 2” thick pad has a compact packed size and inflates rapidly. 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 the air chambers 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 SynCellMat 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 SynCellMat 5 is available in Medium (72” x 20.5"), Medium/Wide (72” x 25.6”) and Long/Wide (77.6" x 25.6") sizes. The 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, a stuff sack and field repair kit are included with each pad.

Likes: Inflates very easy and fast with the Schnozzel Pumpbag. It fits on my TravelChair sleeprite cot like it was made for it. Perfect mat for insulating a cot or hammock, plus it adds comfort.
Dislikes: Not really a dislike, But Exped seems to understate the width of their mats, I ordered the LW ( long-wide ) which the specs say that is 25.5 inches wide, but it is 27 1/4 inches wide, which is perfect for my use. Steven needs to do a video review of the mat.
