The Ultra 3R Duo M mat is sized for couples and benefits from Exped's Polyester insulation introduced into its refreshed range for 2022. This is the smaller of the two 'Couples' mats so if you want something bigger then it is available as the Ultra 3R Duo LW Sleeping Mat.

Exped says:

The Exped Ultra 3R Duo M is an ultra lightweight and compact sleeping mat featuring recycled 20 D ripstop face fabric, and certified carbon neutral by myclimate. Perfect for human powered adventures including backpacking, thru-hiking, bikepacking and alpinism.

SYNMAT TECHNOLOGY: 60 g/m2 Texpedloft insulation welded to the top and bottom of the air chambers ensures maximum warmth over the lifetime of the mat. 7 cm thick air cushion with Exped cradle comfort design: air chambers run head to toe, fully supporting the body for an unrivaled night's sleep and giving maximum durability.

Schnozzel Pumpbag included: rapid, moisture-free mat inflation: lung power not required!

Our Verdict

Exped's Ultra 3R Sleeping Mats are intended for three season use and have an R-Value of 2.9, this is the most popular season rating for sleeping mats and so there are a wide range of sizes available, either Rectangular or Mummy shaped, then in Regular sizes, Longer versions and Wider versions. 

The Ultra 3R Duo M mat is sized for couples and benefits from Exped's Polyester insulation introduced into its refreshed range for 2022. This is the smaller of the two 'Couples' mats so if you want something bigger then it is available as the Ultra 3R Duo LW Sleeping Mat.

The Ultra series are made using 20D face fabric which of course won't be as robust as heavier mats but in our experience its still good for the job, especially if it make the mat lighter.

What we really like about Exped mats are the easy to use non return valves and the superb Schnozzel Pumpsack which makes inflation of the mat simple - its the best inflation sack we've used by far and its big enough to act as a rucksack liner or a drybag.

The Ultra 3R mats are 7cm thick, which is standard and gives a good level of comfort, all have slightly thicker side rails which act to discourage you from rolling off the mats - packed sizes are very small too. 

We also need to commend Exped for their environmental approach to the new range - Production is Carbon Neutral (by offsetting), the Face Fabrics are recycled and their factories are Bluesign approved. There is very little packaging and what there is is simply constructed from recycled card.

If you definitely need a double mat with a full 3 Season rating but still want to keep the weight to a minimum then at 831grams this would be a good option.

ASTM R-Value:

From 2020, there is a new industry standard for measuring the R-value (level of insulation) of sleeping mats – ASTM F3340-18. This new standard is the sleeping mat equivalent to the EN rating for sleeping bags.

You can now directly compare the R-value of mats rated using the ASTM F3340-18 with confidence that is a fair and accurate comparison between mats. In simple terms, the higher the R-value, the warmer the mat.

In general terms, an R-value below 2.0 is for summer use, 2.0 to 4.0 is for cooler 3 season use and 4.0+ is for winter temperatures. This will be also be dependent on your sleeping bag, how cold you sleep etc. Please contact our customer service team if you need advice on choosing the right mat for your activity.
