Question Inflatable Mattress

Did someone at the HU Cooroy meeting manage to get the name and details for the self inflating mattress that was displayed and which everyone thought was a top bit of gear.

Absolutely, Exped Downmat 7 Deluxe.

We just had two delivered from Bivouac in NZ - nice bit of kit.

I use the Exped Downmat DLX9 - it's available from K2 in the Valley. Best investment I ever made!

Is that the mattress on the DVD?

Those who mention the Exped 7 and 9 downmats, note these are NOT self inflating, they have a built in pump, the new ones anyway.

I think the one Saab mentioned may be different, I am not sure, I was there(well, in spirit) but I cannot be sure an actual self inflating one was there, the Exped 7 definitly was.

A big thumbs up on these Exped 7's anyway, as they are a comfortable sleep. althoug next time I will get the deluxe? as it is wider, just that bit more room to move around on.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
