sleeping bag reviews



"On a recent overnight bushwalking trip in the Wonnangatta Valley, I tested out the Exped SynMat 7 sleeping mat. I found the unique, built-in pump system very easy to use; quite different to inflating it with your breath. Also, with two valves, it is very quick to deflate and pack away. The Exped SynMat 7 sleeping mat is much thicker than most lightweight mats on the market, which makes it extremely comfy. Plus, the extra warmth (due to the synthetic fill) is great for my winter trips or for people who enjoy a good night's sleep in outdoors."—NICK
