EXPED’s famous MegaMat built 50% thicker! The 15 cm/6" thick air-core-channeled foam allows the mat to be soft-inflated for an enhanced cradling of the body. Combined with 50-denier stretch top fabric, MegaMat Max offers an unbelievably soft and supple sleep platform. In addition, vertical sidewalls (3-D construction) provide edge-to-edge comfort and gap-free coupling of mats. EXPED's extra-large deflation valve ensures fast deflation and the included top-loading SideWinder stuff sack eases packing and carries over the shoulder.
MegaMat Max has at its core 15 centimeters (6”) of just-the-right density, Oeko-Tex 100 certified, open-cell polyurethane foam for support and warmth. In addition, the foam has had cores removed to produce horizontal air-channels, which reduce weight and packed volume. To enhance the cradling effect, like a high-end home-based bed, the mat’s surface is a brushed, stretch tricot nylon that relieves pressure points (hips and shoulders) while evenly supporting the body across all surfaces, head to foot. Because of the open-cell foam, MegaMat Max is self-inflating; when the inflate valve is opened, the foam expands and draws air into the mat. An EXPED Mini Pump is included to top-off the inflation and achieve the preferred firmness. Also, inflate and deflate valves are soft, large, high flow-rate FlatValves™ – an EXPED “firstovation (first-ever innovation). Because the inflate valve is equipped with a one-way flapper, it can very easily be opened during the night and with just the touch of a fingertip, air can be purged to soften the mat if an over-zealous inflation-master set up camp.
Another important EXPED firstovation is the construction of the vertical, 3-dimensional sidewalls of the mat. These allow the top surface to extend all the way out to the edge of the mat, without tapering, maximizing the usable sleeping surface, just like a bed at home.
