Product details

The Exped - Ultra 5R Sleeping Pad is a high-tech pad for backpacking, thru-hiking, bikepacking, and alpine adventurers. This pad has thermal qualities using Exped's SynMat Technology and Texpedloft insulation, providing maximum insulation and comfort for the most adventurous camper. The air chambers run head to toe, providing full support for the body while maintaining superior durability.

Key Features:

  • SynMat Technology – This technology uses 160g/m2 Texpedloft insulation that is welded to the top and bottom of the mat's air chambers.
  • Welded Baffles – These welded baffles create a stable, cushioned surface between the air chambers for added durability and helps prevent cold spots from occurring.
  • Comfort Cradle – Exped's air chambers run head to toe, and the outer rails keep the sleeper from rolling off the mat.

With an R-value of 4.8 this is a great all round use sleeping pad for anytime of the year. It's well insulated and offers an impressive 3 inches of cushioning. The size M packs down to 5.1 2.2 inches and weighs just 1lb. 4oz. Comes with a repair kit and stuff sack included.

Head-to-toe air chambers ensure quality insulation throughout, and feature a 7cm thick air cushion for a cradling feel. R value sits right 4.8 which is great for cold temps. This pad only weighs ~24oz, packs small, and inflates with the included inflation sack saving lung power and reducing interior moisture.
