Exped's SynMat 7 isn't the warmest mat that the company makes (that'd be the DownMat 7), but it's more affordable, and its 4. 9 R value is still warmer than most traditional air pads. The secret is the SynMat's Texpedloft Microfiber synthetic insulation, which insulates you from the ground, as well as the mat's nearly three-inch height, which makes sure you don't get too close to the cold turf. The SynMat is made from tough polyester that's been treated with a TPU laminate to repel water, and it comes with a repair kit and easy pack sack that lets you slip it easily into your pack when you're hitting the trail.
