Reviewed by Chris from Michigan on Wednesday, March 27, 2013I was a little concerned about the length of this product (I'm 5'8"), however the stuff sack turns inside out and has two ties that you tie to the head of the mat (there are two eyelets), then you stuff a fleece or two into the sack and you have a pillow and about 6 -8 more effective inches of length, as you slide up so now your shoulders are at the top of the mat. With the thickness of the pad only my heals touch the ground not even my calves, and if I turn on my side an curl at all nothing touches the ground. For winter camping I'll throw my jacket under my feet and they'll be just fine, esp. since I'm a hot sleeper anyway and for summer I'll welcome the coolness as my feet always get hot when I sleep. It is very well constructed and is very QUIET, unlike most mats I've laid on. I just tested this on the concrete front porch in 20 degree weather for 2-3 hrs and never got a hint of cold except for my heals which were directly on the concrete (inside my 20 degree bag). I have a 2.5 inch Big Agnes air mat (uninsulated) and with-in 20 minutes whatever side was toward the ground was cold (same sleeping bag), so I know this really works well. Highly recommend, and its also very comfortable, hips never sunk into the ground on my side. I'm keeping my eye open for more of these. Would like to replace all of my mats with these!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Lilyrose from Oregon on Monday, April 23, 2012This is a very comfortable sleeping pad for a small person (my granddaughter). I have a larger one for myself. It's really the cadillac of sleeping pads.
- Best Uses: Car camping home
- Pros: Warm comfortable
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Worth from Indiana on Sunday, April 15, 2012I am still using one of the first down air mattresses that Exped produced. I was so impressed with its performance over the years sleeping on boulder fields and the partial frozen ground of northern Canada that I decided to purchase one for my son. On future hiking trips I will use his because of its smaller size and lighter weight. Bottom line, it is the best mat I have found for a comfortable night's rest. The mat has been redesigned and the built in air pump is nice.
- Cons: Heavier than foam mats
- Pros: Built in air pump, Excellent R-value, Extremely comfortable
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Girl Loves Green from Chico, California on Sunday, April 8, 2012This just wasn't what I thought I was getting, despite having asked a gear expert before I ordered. It weighed 6 oz. more (21.9 oz + 0.6 oz. sack), and did not have the pillowcase/pump deal, though there were loops on the mattress to attach one. Instead, it has the updated internal pump, which I have heard solved a lot of down moisture and feather leakage issues. So having the new pump could be a big plus for some people, but it adds to the weight. 22 oz. for a shorty pad is steep. The quality was top-notch, and it would obviously be durable, for an airpad. Color is tasteful, and it's a great value through STP. All in all, I decided this wasn't the right combination of features for me. It would be a crazy-warm pad, but only covers four feet of your body, so you'd have to sleep partially on your gear or carry a second pad for a groundlayer, which kind of defeats the object of having a compact, small-packing pad. In my humble opinion, the backpackers who go for shortie pads are the gram-pinchers, so this product just doesn't quite cater to any target audience unless you are a child or extremely small adult sleeping on snow. You'll be stoked... guaranteed.
- Best Uses: Car Camping, Comfort Backpacking, kids, Second Pad for Snow
- Cons: No Stuffsack Pillowcase, Not for Minimalists, Short, Weighed 6 oz More
- Pros: Durable, Easy to inflate, Warm
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Albuquerque hiker from New Mexico on Tuesday, April 3, 2012I was looking for a more comfortable ultralight pad to replace an old backpacking Thermarest pad which was 1 pound in weight. I didn't want a heavier pad--every ounce counts now that I am older. This pad's spec said it weighed 1 pound, but when I got it, it turned out to be 1 pound 6.5 ounces (just the pad alone) which is not suitable for ultralight backpacking.
- Best Uses: Winter Camping
- Cons: Mat weighs 1lb 65 oz, Not really an ultralight
- Pros: Never used it

“Please verify the wieght of this product... The Exped site says a Downmat 7Pump short wiwghs 22.2 oz plus another 0.6oz for the stuff sack... STP lists the wieght as 1lb. thanks.”
The Exped DownMat 7 Sleeping Pad does weight 1lb (22.2 = 1.3lbs). Sorry for the confusion. Have a great day.
Nice catch... The model shipped is NOT the one described in the listing. The product I received did have the internal pump (not the pump-sack/pillowcase), and it weighs 21.9 oz., plus 0.6 oz. for the stuff sack. Hope that helps!
“According to the Exped site, it sounds like the pump is integrated into the stuff sack, not the sleeping pad itself (unlike the Synmat). Is that right? And they also list the weight of this model at 21.9 oz, while you state it is 1 lb. (16 oz.). Is this a different model, or could you please clarify which is correct? Thanks!”
The pad we currently is an older model than the one on Expeds site. The pad we carry does weigh 1 lb. (16 oz.). and the pump is in the pad.
