Air Sprung Cells™ are the core technology used in Sea to Summit Air Mats and are the reason you will sleep more comfortably on a Sea to Summit mat than on a conventional air pad. Inspired by the hundreds of springs found in a modern pocket sprung mattress, the hundreds of small interconnected chambers (called Air Sprung Cells™) perfectly support your weight and conform to your body contours. The Ultra Light range has a single layer of medium resolution cells to give you the lightest and smallest packed volume mat without compromising on Sea to Summit's Air Sprung Cell comfort.
The Airstream Pumpsack is Sea to Summit's big volume mattress pump which we've now integrated into the stuff sack of every Air Sprung Cell mat. The clever design opens at one end to stow the air mat and the other end unfolds to become the built-in pump. The Airstream Pumpsack can be inflated with a single breath and takes just two or three cycles to fill our mats. Not only is it faster than inflation by mouth, but there is minimal breath condensation entering the mat and it eliminates dizziness from blowing the mat up directly by mouth. The Airstream Pumpsack is also compatible with Sea to Summit's smaller multifunction valve, which is now featured on the updated Aeros pillow range, along with the Air Seats.
Sea to Summit uses an anti-microbial finish in two different applications. The internal laminate of Sea to Summit Air Sprung Cell mats is treated with an anti-microbial compound to prevent mold (which could otherwise result from condensed breath moisture remaining in the mat for long periods). The fabric of Expander liners has an anti-microbial finish to keep the knitted poly-cotton fabric fresh and odor free. Both finishes are permanent.
The uprated high tensile yarn, high thread count 30/40D ripstop nylon face fabric of our Air Sprung Cell™ sleeping mats is quiet, light and extremely durable. On the inside, we apply a bright white TPU to make the fabric airtight and weldable - it also contains a permanent antimicrobial treatment to ensure mold will not form on the inside of the mat. These characteristics combine to form the strongest, most durable air mat fabric available. On the outside, we apply a thin proprietary coating to reduce the slipperiness of the surface, increase water resistance, and aid puncture repair with the included self-adhesive patches.
Frequently Asked questions
Really comfortable at this thickness?
Yes. Thickness isn't the key factor for sleeping pad comfort – the number of points of suspension is. Our air sprung cell sleeping pads support your body weight with hundreds of individually air-filled springs.
Easy to inflate?
Yes! The supplied stuff sack features an integrated Airstream Pump which will quickly inflate the sleeping pad. This means no dizziness for you, and practically no condensation moisture inside the pad.
Is the UltraLight suitable for colder weather?
No. This pad does not have additional internal insulation, so it is intended only for warm-weather camping. For colder conditions, we recommend an insulated sleeping pad.
