The hand pump works great.

A well insulated pad is critical for staying warm when camping in cold weather.

As heavy as it is, it's still my favorite piece of backpacking gear.

I bought a Downmat 9 for my camping trip to Alaska. I just got back yesterday after a week of camping, and I was extremely happy with this mat. It rolls up into a very small package - much smaller than regular Thermarest type mats, and when inflated it's very thick so even when sleeping on my side, my hips and other bony parts don't bottom out on the hard ground. The thermal properties were nice too - I was never cold like if I was on an uninsulated air mattress. Takes about 2-3 minutes to inflate, and about 5 to deflate. Totally worth the steep price!

Granted, at 3 lbs, taking the long & wide version of this thing on a backpacking trip might seem a little excessive, but if you like to sleep on your side and hate having your hips dig into the ground and having your arm fall asleep, then this is the camping mat for you. For years, I used the thermarest brand camping pads. Sure, they were warm enough, lightweight and provided a little cushion and could be used as little chairs if you bought the seat attachment, but I never slept well. I finally had enough and went all out and bought the Exped Downmat 9. Best nights of sleep ever! Seriously, I can sleep the entire night without waking up once. I love this thing! I've even convinced at least 3 of my friends to make the switch and they all love them, too. Sure, they're expensive and yes some might consider them a little too heavy for backpacking but for me it means a great night of restful sleep in the backcountry and I think it's totally worth the cost and weight.

Inflating and deflating is pretty easy but will take a few minutes. I inflate it just enough to keep my hips from bottoming out and touching the ground while I'm laying on my side. The tiny valve that you squeeze to let out a small amount of air to get it just right is hard to find and also kind of hard to tell if it's working. You do that method when you want to let out a small amount of air without opening up the deflate valve (the inflate valve/port should be open for this part). Even though that part is a little tricky, this camping pad is still an incredible sleeping mat. I've probably slept on it at least 60 nights and it's never leaked any air.

Color Name: BlackSize Name: Long Wide Verified Purchase
I've used several kinds of sleeping pads and mattresses over the years. This by far is the most comfortable and well-constructed (and most expensive!) pad I've owned, but if comfort and confidence in getting a good night's sleep in the outdoors is your goal, this is the pad for you. The internal pump is a nice convenience, though be sure to allow time for the foam to fully expand before attempting to pump. Also, mind the dimensions of the pad for your needs--I purchased the largest size, but turns out to be a bit large inside a bivy sack or two-person tent.

I am an ultralight backpacker who winter camps as well. There are a couple of things you have to have when camping in cold weather, wet or both. You need warmth and dryness because cold, wet or both types of weather can and will kill you. I don't mean to be overly dramatic but its important to understand why even though I pack ultralight, there are things I will never skimp on. My 15 degree bag is 2lbs, my tent between 3 and 4 lbs and now my Exped DownMat 9 LW is a little less than 3 lbs. Thats 8lbs of gear that will keep me alive no matter what I encounter and I won't skimp on any of it. Other super ultralight campers can get by with 3 lbs of similar gear but won't be sleeping in below freezing temps without a fire. The extra 5lbs I carry will keep me alive no matter what happens (unless of course I lose the gear). So, the extra 5 lbs to me is worth carrying around for this reason alone. If I really wanted I could ditch the tent, get a tarp and shave another 2 lbs for winter camping. One other note, if you have a down bag you have to make up for that fact by using an exceptional sleeping pad because where ever the down compresses, it is useless.

Expensive at $199 but got it onsale for $165. I have three of these. I have the version before they integrated the pump and two of the new Downmat 9 LW. Excellent heat retention. I usually take my 20 degree bag and use it as a comforter because the mat keeps me so warm. I would recommend this to anyone that places comfort over weight when backpacking. Also I have yet to get a puncture (jinks). I have taken this mat in winter, spring, and summer camping and it is excellent. Personally I liked the stuff sack the previous model had because it could be used to inflate and store. Plus it was padded for use as a pillow. To get a pump sack for the new one you have to buy the extra sack and an adapter. Extra 35-40 dollars to get what was included before. They are worth the money because they inflate the mat much faster than the integrated pump. It takes about 125 compressions to fill via the integrated pump vs 5 fills from the stuff sack. For imformation the previous models stuff sack would take about 10 fills to inflate that verison of the mat. Overall you can't beat this mat and everyone should have one in the outdoors!
