GETTING THE BEST OUT OF YOUR SEA TO SUMMIT SLEEPING MAT

 

If you’ve used any one of Sea to Summit’s new sleeping mats, you’ll know how comfortable they are. You’ll no doubt have discovered how easy they are to inflate and deflate. And you won’t have kept other campers awake with the noise of crinkly insulation; so you’ll know how quiet they are, too.

This is basically why this innovative product line has received numerous awards including a Backpacker Magazine Editors Choice Award

So back to the burning question: How do I keep my award winning mat working perfectly; throughout the year, year after year?

PUMPS? OR MOUTH INFLATION?
You can mouth-inflate a Sea to Summit mat. Unlike other mats, which often suffer from internal mold along the welds caused by condensation from the user’s breath, Sea to Summit mats have an anti-microbial component in the laminate which will prevent mold from occurring.

However, the Airstream and Jetstream pumps are more efficient and will ensure that your mat is inflated in an incredibly short time. Also, the Jetstream pump doubles up as a stuff sack for any of the non-insulated mats and the Airstream pump works as a dry sack to store your clothing or sleeping bag inside your backpack.

 

WHICH SIDE SHOULD I FACE THE MAT WHEN IN USE?
The conventional orientation would be to use the mat with the Sea to Summit logo facing upwards. However, in terms of insulation value, it makes no difference which way up the mat faces.

 

HOW DO I STORE THE MAT?
Typically all air mats should be stored with their valves open. This allows for the trapped air to escape and with it; any traces of moisture. Although the mat comes with an anti-microbial finish built into the laminate which will prevent mold from growing inside the mat, but it is still better to allow for some ventilation.

Do not store the mat inside its stuff sack, and ensure the mat is completely dry before storage. To allow the greatest chance for ventilation the mat should be stored flat, folded as few times as possible. If there is any moisture inside the mat, storing the mat tightly rolled for a prolonged period can result in damage to the urethane laminate. If the the external shell of the mat is damp when it is put away, it may well grow mold. Additionally, storing an insulated mat tightly rolled for a prolonged period can unduly compress the Thermolite insulation and reduce its effectiveness.

 

THINGS TO AVOID
DEET is your enemy. It is a common solvent and mostly found in mosquito repellent. It will not harm the nylon of the sleeping mat, but it will destroy the proprietary coating on the outside which is designed to make the mat more waterproof/less slippery/easier to repair. So keep DEET away from your mat.
Another element to be aware of as an air-filled mat user is embers from a camp fire. The embers which float off into the air are hot enough to melt holes in the nylon/urethane laminate. So keep your mat away from camp fires.
HOW TO QUICKLY REPAIR THE MAT?
STS mats usually come with a repair kit that consists of four patches which utilize a 3M adhesive. If these are not available to you and you should need to repair a puncture in your sleeping mat, the best product to use is Seam Grip, from a company called McNett.

The repair kit also contains a silicone insert for the valve for the unlikely event this should go missing.

 

WASHING THE MAT
Wiping the mat down with a sponge using soap and warm water should be all the washing your mat needs. If the mat has been exposed to some kind of organic material and you need to neutralize an odor, the best product to use is McNett MiraZyme.

If the mat should be exposed to DEET or petroleum-based solvents, it is important to wash it as soon as possible.

 

THE SEA TO SUMMIT ULTRALIGHT HAMMOCK

Introducing the world’s lightest hammock. The Sea To Summit Ultralight Hammock features a specially designed Nylon 66 monofilament fabric.

Its whisper-light appearance is matched on the scales, coming in at a tiny 153 grams. Yet this fabric is more than strong enough to take the load of a sleeping camper, rated at 136 kilograms. Being a monofilament fabric, it is also highly compressible making for a miniscule packed size.

The buckle on the Ultralight is made from high strength, lightweight aluminum 6061 to shave extra grams. The webbing loop is triple bar-tacked to the hammock to ensure long term durability. The built-in compression sack is designed with extra space so suspension straps can be stored inside.
