Exped DownMat

The DownMat series is designed to combine great comfort, compressibility, light weight and serious warmth. We like to say that this mat lets us have our cake and eat it as well. The down insulation is what allows the DownMat to balance all of these somewhat contradictory elements - much like the difference between synthetic and down sleeping bags. "Hey, I want to be able to carry my mat in my pack, stay really warm on a glacier, keep my hips and shoulders off the ground and still go lightweight!" That's a very tall order but the DownMat offers the best option for all of the above.
