Wild camping has many lures. There’s a sense of freedom you can’t experience any other way – just you in the wilderness, alone with the great outdoors. You can feel the warmth of first light, smell the dew on the grass and taste the fresh air after a night tucked up in your tent. It’s invigorating.
And yet there’s no denying it: lugging around camping gear can be a challenge – especially if you are out hiking. If you opt for comfort in the tent, it often means settling for bukier, heavier kit, which isn’t practical to carry. That is why Exped is giving away two of their lightweight SynMat sleeping mats, plus two AirPillows – desgined to help you have a good night’s sleep in the wild.
The SynMat HL from Exped is the world’s lightest mat for its warmth and comfort levels, weighing in at only 365g. It also folds down tiny – just 19cm by 9cm when packed. The design is tapered so it matches the shape of the body, taking up as little space as possible inside the tent.
Also included in the prize are two inflatable AirPillows – adjustable depending on whether you sleep on your side or back. Both the mats and pillows have anti-slip GripSkin to prevent you sliding off on a slope, plus the mats are insulated for warmth.
Finally, to help pump up your new gear, the prize includes the clever Schnozzel Pumpbag. Weighing only 60g (roughly the weight of a tennis ball), this bag allows you to push air into your mat or pillow so you don’t have to huff and puff, preventing humidity from your breath affecting the insulation. The bag also doubles as a lightweight compression stuff sack.
Exped’s goal is to provide a great outdoor experience, creating gear for comfort without compromising on weight or size. For over 20 years they’ve followed this ‘less is more’ strategy, developing kit that doesn’t hold you back so you can enjoy the outdoors with no restriction, wherever you are in the world.
