"SIM" = Self Inflating Mat: traditional style mats with hollow air channels. The result: reduced weight and bulk. Comfortable, slip resistant and of course, durable! Exped self inflating mats demonstrate thoroughly thoughtful design and quality, as recognized in outdoor magazine tests. For example, SIM Light 3.8 and 5 were both highlighted in Outdoor Magazine (Germany, July 2003 and November 2004). Outdoor Magazine (Germany) July 2003 test winner! A 4-season mat with horizontal tunnels offers lighter weight and less bulk than solid foam.
• Exped mats inflate quickly with wide air channels and valves.
• Textured polyester fabric is abrasion- and UV-resistant, and easy on bare skin. For improved slip resistance, top surface is honeycomb patterned, although it's not so 'grippy' that would prevent easy turning with the bag.
• 2 loops at the end permit securing the packsack (stuffed with clothes) for use as a pillow. Generously sized stuff sacks offer easy packing.
• Only CFK-free, high grade open cell polyurethane foam.
• High frequency welded seams add strength.
• Lamination process (bonding foam to fabric) gets special attention. Delamination, a common defect in other self inflating mats, is greatly diminished in Exped mats.
• Dark colors for rapid drying.
• Wide mouth valves close with just 1/4 turn. Valves are located on the ends, rather than corners, to prevent damage. High quality molded valves reduce weight and never feel cold.
• Included: fabric patches and textile glue.
• Tip: Lose the packsack. Line the back of your pack with a mat for additional padding.
