What's in the box:
Exped SynMat Basic 7.5 air mattress, repair kit with adhesive and fabric patches.
SynMat Basic mats use the same high quality fabrics and construction as the SynMat 7 series, but the integrated pump has been removed and the chamber separations are welded-through rather than being baffled This lowers the cost of the mat yet still works well in moderate conditions
Low profile FlatValves (pat. pend), one for inflation and the other for deflation ensure ease of use. As the valves are flat and not on the mat's edge they do not protrude and are therefore protected and durable.
Mats can be inflated by mouth, but for easier inflation we recommend one of three Exped accessories: Pillow Pump, Mini Pump or with an Exped Shrink Bag and Schnozzel
Separation of the microfiber filled chambers is achieved by extremely strong high frequency welding (as in Exped AirMats)
Laminated polyester fabric is both durable, airtight and humidity resistant. The shell's top surface is of brushed polyester fabric that provides excellent slip resistance and comfort next to the skin. The side seams are high frequency welded for durability.
Two loops at the head end can be used to secure the packsack to the mat when used as a pillow.
Light and warm: The SynMat Basic mats provide a heat resistance value of 4.0. EMPA tests demonstrated that regular mats lose 3x more heat to cold ground than to the air. The conclusion is that a warmer mat is more important than a warmer sleeping bag.
