Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent investment in sleep I have used this pad for most of the Summer and Winter camping seasons and I absolutely love it. Easy to inflate, packs down to nothing, and is very lightweight. The fabric seems quite durable, no rips or snags to date. I sleep great on it even as a side sleeper, and have had no issues with it in the winter despite it not being rated as a winter mat (they do have a version that is and I am sure it is great). My only problem is that the crevasses will collect bits of dirt and debris while inflated. Not that big of a deal as long as I am careful to brush it off after deflation and before storing. Love this mat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best [$] I've spent in a while Great investment. Can't imagine why you would get the version without the built in pump. Minimal weight and A LOT easier than blowing the thing up with spitty air. Especially at altitude ! Incredibly comfortable for a week backpacking in Holy Cross wilderness with gnarly camp sites. Great night sleeps even at 11,500. Don't see the need for next model up as the 7 was plenty of loft and plenty warm. Seemed light enough and I'm happy to pack it along for the excellent comfort it provides. I slid off a couple of times in the night but you will have that in a slippery down bag. Pump worked like a champ. Get it !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Q-Core! Ok so, I originally bought the XL version (Big guy) of this and thought It was too big to put into my pack. I tried it out for an hour or so just napping on it and WOW it was comfy and warm I was super stoaked with it. But being the hard head that I am returned it for the Q-core thinking I would enjoy the same comfort and less weight. I WAS WRONG. The Q-core is horrible compared to this pad. The q-core took longer to blow up, it was more of a pain to deflate, roll up and put back in the sack while the Synmat was easy and took less than a minute. I should also mention the synmat felt ALOT more durable and seems like it would last longer. So it will be a little more bulky in your pack, so what comfort is worth it! I am returning the Q-core for the Synmat today.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good I gave it away & bought another! I bought this because I was going to South America and would be camping a lot on a group trip from Buenos Aires to Rio and then also hike Machu Picchu. I have neck problems, so wanted to be comfy when I slept. This was definitely loads better than the small self-inflating mattresses and I started to sleep very well on it in the moderate and cold climates. The guide on the Inca trail was impressed by it, so I left it for him as a tip in the hope that the lower weight compared with his would enable him to carry warmer layers. I proceeded to be the same one again, given how much I liked it. The one downside is that if you sleep in just a liner in hot climates it's harder to turn over and makes more noise. But what air mattress doesn't make noise when you move?!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shortest Wide Mat I had tried a few of the competitors products, which Exped customer service told me pays them Inventor Royalties. I avoided the Exped because of the higher price, that was a mistake! The Exped is the only one that comes in a Medium length AND WIDE! I'm on the smaller side, 5'7" & ~150 lbs, so I didnt want a 6.5' mattress just so I don't fall off the pad! Also, the integrated hand pump was a big selling point, I was tired of being out of breath from inflating the competitors product! I should have bought this earlier! I ride motorcycles and was quite sore from riding the minor dirt roads around Death Valley. Layed down and got great rest and then back up to do it again the next day without an issue!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Nights Sleep This was the first sleeping mat I slept on about a year ago. I borrowed it from a friend. But after a few trips I decided to get my own mat. I wanted to try something different and got talked into the importance of going as light as possible so I ended up walking out of REI with a Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XLite Sleeping Pad--- which I returned within a week after one use because of how uncomfortable and cold I was on the pad. Anyway -- I've recently purchased my own exped synmat and don't regret it! It's not the lightest option you can get but it's comfortable and I am such a princess when it comes to sleep that I choose comfort over lightness!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfortable but noisy I've had this pad for over a year now and have backpacked in hot weather and cold snow. It provides an excellent barrier between the frozen ground. The built in pump makes it easy to inflate in minutes. It is compact and slughtly heavier but worth the comfort. The major flaw compared to other sleeping pads is that it is SO NOISY! I keep my partner up and in a recent small group backpacking trip to Mount Rainier I kept others up every time I moved! Overall the pad is lightweight and comfy, especially for side sleepers but I would not recommend if you camp with others!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pad! I got this during a kick to make my camping gear super portable, and to replace the big and (relatively) heavy self-inflating coleman sleeping pad I had been using. If the price isn't a problem for you, it is a great pad. I was willing to spend a bit more for a quality pad this time. It is comfortable, the non-slip top actually seems to be surprisingly effective, and it is small/light while still feeling durable enough that I'm not going to pop it when I put my 200lbs on it. I'm still not convinced I actually need the built in pump, but I feel better using it knowing I'm not filling the insides with moisture from my breath. The people saying it is hard to inflate, or it takes a long time must have to look at their toothpaste each morning to figure out how to brush their teeth. I didn't time myself, but you can probably inflate it in 3 minutes if you're in a rush.
