Warm, comfortable, compact and affordable.
These microfiber filled airmats are super comfortable, warmer and lighter than comparable mats. As the fiber compresses well they also pack extremely small. New ultralight UL versions round off the range.The SynMats do not reach the insulating properties of our DownMats but offer the same comfort, low weight and compact packed size. They come at a lower price point as synthetic fiber is cheaper in cost than the goose down found in our DownMats. The weight to warmth ratio is far superior to standard foam filled sleeping mats.
The synthetic microfiber filling is laminated to both upper and lower sides of the mat which eliminates the loss of loft common to synthetic filled sleeping bags. As with the DownMats, lab testing was done at EMPA.
The coveted Outdoor Industry Gold Award 2010 went to the new UL mat versions just after conception! The combination of light weight, warmth and compact packed size is unique. The regular SynMats won the Editors Choice Award on an earlier occasion.
Both low profile valves (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.
Welded baffles between the microfiber filled chambers, unlike traditional airmats, eliminate cold spots and create a comfortably supportive and stable air cushion.
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 seams are high frequency welded for durability.
Light and warm: The Synmat 7 has a heat resistance value of 4.9. At about the same weight a standard 2.5 cm self inflating mat only offers a R-value of 2.5. EMPA tests demonstrated that regular mats lose 3x more heat to cold ground than to the air. The conclusion: a warmer mat is more important than a warmer sleeping bag. Therefore use a lighter weight sleeping bag with a SynMat to achieve consistent overall comfort, and still reduce weight and bulk!
