REVIEW: Klymit Static V Camping mat

KLYMIT STATIC V CAMPIN MAT

A mat that we swear by. We’ve never known comfort when camping before them. We used ours for 5 months straight and got a few holes from lying them on thorns but they come with a repair kit. You really don’t feel like you are camping, no back pain, no hip touching the ground! They cost about €70 but I would splash out because any other mat will not encourage such a good sleep.
If you do not use the mat for a while, leave it somewhere with the valve open. This will allow excess water from your breath to escape.
It measures 72″ x 23″ x 2.5″
PROS

  • LIGHTWEIGHT  (514 g)
  • COMPACT WHEN ROLLED ( the size of a water bottle)
  • V SHAPED CHAMBERS ENSURE A BETTER CIRCULATION OF AIR FOR WARMTH.
  • INSULATED BASE WORKS FOR ALL SEASONS
  • COMPLETELY INFLATES IN ABOUT 10-13 BREATHS.
  • YOU DO NOT TOUCH THE GROUND, EVEN WHEN LYING ON YOUR SIDE
  • SIMPLE VALVE SYSTEM
  • EXCELLENT COMPANY SUPPORT

CONS

  • STATIC V SHAPE DOESN’T KEEP YOU ON THE MAT ALL NIGHT LIKE THEY SAY BUT IT IS INEVITABLE TO ROLL OFF YOUR MAT WHEN CAMPING IN A TENT.
  • AFTER SOME TIME THE MATS GET BLACK DOTS ON THE INSIDE FROM THE MOISTURE IN YOUR BREATH BUT THIS IN NO WAY AFFECTS THE PRODUCT .
  • IT CAN BE DIFFICULT TO FIND A PUNCTURE.
  • NOT THE LIGHTEST IF EVERY GRAM COUNTS
