I have read many good reviews on the Klymit Series (Air Mats). I decided to buy one, Klymit Static V Camo, and field test it on an overnight trip into the Juniper Prairie Wilderness. The Klymit Static V Camo is an insulated 4-season air mat with an r-value of 4.4. It weighs about 24.1 ounces, and it measures 72” L x 23” W x 2.5” H. This air mat is made of a 75D Polyester material making it a bit heavier but very durable for rough Wilderness terrain.
The weight and r-value for this 4-season air mat is comparative to other more expensive air mats in the market place. Klymit manufactures a variety of air mats to meet the needs of the outdoor adventurer. Klymit also manufactures these air mats in a variety of colors to include camouflage.
The temperatures during my stay dipped into the lower 40’s. For a Floridian that is cold. I found a clearing off the Florida Trail and I set up my basecamp. This air mat held up very well during my field test and it kept me warm. The 4.4 r-value insulated me from the cold ground. The V design air baffle system allowed me to have a comfortable nights sleep. I slept both on my back and side. Overall, I was very happy with its performance and comfort. I observed no visible signs of air loss when I awoke in the morning.
I purchased this air mat on Amazon for about $65 dollars (Prices vary online). Klymit also manufactures sleeping bags and air pillows. If you are in the market for a good quality air mat at an affordable cost try a Klymit. I am sure that you will not be disappointed.
