Exped SynMat UL 7 Sleeping Mat

Here's a video about the new SynMat UL 7. Very comfortable, super light and compact and quick to inflate with one of several different inflation options. One additional method of inflation we didn't mention in the video is the combination of an Exped stuff sack with a purge valve (Shrink Bag, Shrink Bag Pro, Telecompression Bag, Compression Bag) and the Schnozzel. Here's a video that discusses inflation options:

As mentioned in the video, SynMat UL 7 uses the same proven method for securing the insulation within the chambers as all other SynMat styles - lamination to the top and bottom of the chambers. This ensures that every time the mat is inflated the insulation is pulled apart and fills the entire chamber. This is a critical detail that helps SynMats reach high levels of warmth.
