A 9cm-thick rectangular Down insulated inflatable sleeping mat with a high R-Value designed to insulate you from the ground in the coldest of conditions reducing heat loss and increasing comfort.
The R-value is a measure of thermal resistance, or ability of heat to transfer from hot to cold, through materials (such as insulation) An R-Value of 8 is good to around -38C. Far colder than you are likely to encounter in Australia.
The DownMat 9 is designed for extreme sub zero temperatures. Exped DownMats are super comfortable, warmer, and more compact than any other comparable mat of similar weight. Since down compresses so well Downmats also pack very small. Heat loss is dramatically reduced with down insulation inside the mat as demonstrated by EMPA (the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Testing) Research and field tests by expeditions. The 9cm thick cushion of air also provides superior comfort and smooths out uneven ground. The integrated pump ensures swift and intuitive inflation of the mat. Use both hands to inflate the mat within a minute. The flat deflation valve with one way flap is quick and effective. Welded baffles between the down filled chambers unlike traditional air mats eliminate cold spots and create a comfortably supportive and stable air cushion.
The rectangular shape also suits swags and the down fill will add much needed warmth.
