  • Mat is 3 in. thick, providing ample comfort against rocky, rooty, uneven terrain
  • 20-denier, 100% recycled polyester fabric is incredibly light weight; nonslip finish helps keep you on the pad
  • Interior hydrolysis-resistant laminate is impervious to bacteria and moisture, which can degrade typical polyurethane coatings, ensuring an airtight mat for many years
  • Internal welded baffles separate air chambers, creating a fully cushioned and stable sleep surface and preventing cold spots without excessive weight and bulk
  • Internal synthetic insulation is laminated to both the top and bottom of each baffle, ensuring consistent warmth and R-value rating, use after use, year after year
  • Proprietary 160 g Texpedloft microfiber insulation
  • Air chambers are oriented head-to-toe, so the pad becomes slightly wider when weighted
  • Oversize outer chambers form the Exped Comfort Cradle, helping to keep you centered and secured on the pad
  • Vertical baffle orientation also reduces end-of-baffle welds, increasing lifespan of the pad
  • This pad has an R-value of 4.8, which makes it a great choice for adventures in cold weather, providing considerable insulation from ground temperature.
  • Recommended for all-season use, or 3-season use for those who tend to get cold while sleeping
  • Durable, easy-to-use, one-way Flat Valves provide a high volume of airflow so you can quickly inflate/deflate the pad
  • Flat Valves also eliminate the hard-to-soft interface of standard pad valves, reducing wear points and prolonging pad life
  • Includes Schnozzel pump bag for inflation (weight: 2.1 oz.), a stuff sack for protection during transportation, and a repair kit with adhesive and fabric patches
