The air sprung cells are the core technology of this mat, allowing you to have a comfortable nights sleep. Instead of the typical baffled construction, these sleeping mats are constructed using a matrix of air cells that move independently to conform to your body’s shape without affecting adjacent cells. Translated to backpacker-speak, that means you don’t flatten out spots under, say, your hipbones or shoulders.
The Exkin Platinum thermal technology reflects radiant heat loss back to you, while the Thermolite insulation lofts up inside the Air Sprung Cells to prevent convective heat loss from your warm body to the cold ground. The Exkin Platinum and Thermolite technologies are combined in this mat to ensure you stay as warm as possible while carrying the lightest weight.
It was quick and straightforward to inflate with the the well thought out integrated stuff and pump sack. I found it surprisingly easy to roll up and fit into the stuff sack something I cannot say of some other inflatable mats.
