If you are looking for durability over weight and a 4 Season mat in a full rectangular format then this mat would be a good choice.

Exped says:

The Exped Versa 5R M is a versatile, multi-use mat for a variety of adventures, including camping, backpacking and adventure travel.

SYNMAT TECHNOLOGY™: 200 g/m2 Texpedloft insulation welded to the top and bottom of the air chambers ensures maximum warmth over the lifetime of the mat. 9 cm thick air cushion with Exped cradle comfort design: air chambers run head to toe, fully supporting the body for an unrivalled night's sleep and giving maximum durability.

Integrated pump: makes inflation swift and simple - lung power not required!

Our Verdict

Exped's Versa 5R Sleeping Mats are four season camping mats in a full rectangular format as opposed to a mummy shape. The are constructed using 75 Denier fabrics which are much more durable and ouncture resistant than thos used in ultralight models. There is or course a weight penalty for this but if durability and a longer life are important to you that will not matter too much.

Comparing the Versa 5R M with the similarly spec'd Ultra 5R M, all the specs are the same except for the fabric weight, the Ultra 5R M weighs 587grams and the Versa 5R M weighs 863grams - it's nearly 50% heavier.

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. In the case of a down filled mat it is essential to use an inflation device as using your mouth forces moisture into the mat which will eventually compromise the down.

The Versa 5R mats are 9cm thick, which is 2cm thicker than a standard mat thickness and hence delivers an enhanced level of comfort. Unlike the Ultra mats the Versas don't have the oversized side rails to help you stay on board.

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 are looking for durability over weight and a 4 Season mat in a full rectangular format then this mat would be a good choice.

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.
