Introducing a new generation of self-inflating mats, the Exped Megamat 10 LXW provides a sleeping surface that is completely level, right to the edges. These mats are perfect for campers who want luxurious sleeping comfort, but are limited on transport space.

A velvety face fabric laminated to hollow cored foam has a minimal packed size, expands to a massive 10cm in height, and provides superior insulation. FlatValve technology incorporates two separate valves for easy inflation, deflation, and adjustment of the mat pressure during use.

Exped is an innovative Swiss brand who stand by the quality of their products, which is why each Exped mat is individually tested for airtight integrity prior to shipment. All mats are designed to withstand 5 times the pressure attained during normal inflation, and they back their products with a 5 year warranty.

Now with the addition of a smart pack sack, with a roll top opening and an adjustable carry strap for easier transport – the Megamat 10 LXW from Exped is the simple choice when it comes to quality and comfort.

  • FlatValve technology for easy inflation, deflation and adjustment

Great product and company

I purchased 2 singles and the couplers for the extra room and ease of packing. These mats are not cheap but they are brilliant. Delivery was very quick and fully tracked.

Simply awesone

I totally agree with the other reviews. This is by far the best mat indeed best camping bed I have ever purchased. Insulated and warm for sleeping directly on the ground or placed onto of a raised stretcher or bed. Sensationally comfortable. Quick deployment. Self inflates totally. Easy pack up. Relatively small packed size and very light weight. Quite possibly my favorite bit of kit after my sleeping bag.
Cant recommend highly enough.
So versitile. So worth the considerale price.

Excellent purchase

Fantastic sleeping mat, extremely comfortable especially with how adjustable the firmness is. I have used mine on the floor at home, on a camp stretcher and in a traditional type swag, each set up needing a different firmness level which worked out great. In the swag it packs up so small compared to the standard foam. Highly recommend this mat for any camping situation, or at home for an extra bed when needed. If left the recommended time to inflate once unrolled you dont need to pump it too many times, but if in a hurry it took me approx 100 hand pumps to get it to my preferred firmness but this took only a minute, nothing when you consider how comfy this thing is. The high insulating aspect comes in handy when in the swag directly on the cold ground for a toasty night's sleep. Overall a great product with fast delivery from snowy's.

most comfortable mat I've slept on camping!!!

This has to be the most comfortable mat and hubby agrees that we've ever slept on camping over our 30+ years of camping!! Worth every cent!!! I've never slept better camping than on this mat! I purchased 2 of these along with the coupler kit and coupled them together and put them on top of our oztrail queen stretcher for a better height from the ground even though they were larger width than the stretcher they were awesome you wouldn't have known they overhung by about 5cms either side! having single mats coupled together meant hubby and I could set our own firmness and allow for the bar in the middle of queen stretcher beds. I can't speak more highly about these mats just in love with them!!! thanks Snowy's for your advice and speedy service with these!!!

Essential Car Camping Mat

The most expensive but the best mat I have ever owned. Between the UK and Australia we have now used about four different mats and the Exped stands head and shoulders above the rest. It's easy to lay out and inflates well but using the hand pump ensures you have a comfortable mat. No evidence of any leakage overnight and the size of the mat means I can spread out comfortably when I sleep.
Packing away is simple both in using the valves to deflate but also the way that the bag opens down the side and does not require the mat to be compacted to factory dimensions to fit. We pack sleeping bags seperate but sheets and inflatable pillows fit in with the mats.
not ideal for hiking but perfect for a car camper.

Best mattress for heavy/fat people...

I've been using this for a year now for frequent camping. I am a big girl and can feel the floor through most camp mattresses. I did my research and this was recommended. It's fairly expensive, but WOW, is it comfortable! Even when I'm sleeping on my side I can't feel the floor through this mattress and it's very comfortable. I sleep amazingly well! My husband has had back surgery and is very tall and fit, and loves his as well! It's quality made and I expect I won't have to buy another mattress for many, many years. It is tedious and takes a long time to inflate (probably 10-15")with the included pump, and it's SO much faster with a battery powered pump. This is truly the best mattress out there, take the plunge and spend the money, you won't regret it!

Happy wife, happy (camping) life

Bought one of these for my wife for tent based camping with vehicle. She loves it! It's long and wide so she can spread out and it is super comfortable, as good as our bed at home. I think i'll need to get my own one as I have serious camp mat envy.

What is the best stretcher to put this on?

G'day Alex,

Great question. Tough one to answer as many stretchers would do the job well. One we would recommend is the Oztent King Goanna Stretcher which you can view here.

Smart pack sack1 answer

I already own an Exped, but want to know if you can purchase this new green smart pack sack? The original stuff sack for the exped is sometimes difficult to roll onto the deflated mat.

- Albury(3 weeks ago)

G'day Brooke,

Unfortunately, this isn't easy to do but it's also not impossible. We have to order Exped products from Europe 6 months in advance through the distributor, so getting our hands on spares like this bag is quite a challenge. However, If you were prepared to wait, we could definitely look into it further for you and see whether getting a bag would be possible.

Is this the updated version?1 answer

Just wondering if this mat is the 2017 updated model

These Exped Megamat 10 LXW mats are the current model which was released in Australia at the beginning of this year (2017).

pumping up mat1 answer

Hi Can you use an ordinary 12v pump like one used for an airbed to put mare air into the mat or is there a special valve attachment required

- newcastle(3 months ago)

G'day Kev,

You can use a 12V pump with the Megamat, just keep in mind that the nozzles that come with a standard pump may not fit the Megamat perfectly, so you just have to find the closest fit and hold it up to the valve to seal it as best as you can.

Exped Megamat 10 LXW vs. Thermarest Mondoking 3D1 answer

Hi. I am currently trying to decide between two mattresses: the Exped Megamat 10 LXW and the recently released Thermarest Mondoking 3D XXL. I realise that the Mondoking 3D, currently, is not a stocked product at Snowys however, I was hoping that one of the team may have some experience with both mattresses in order to offer a comfort comparison? I like a plush mattress at home and would like to replicate that as close as possible. Thank you in advance for your advice.

- Kinross(4 months ago)

G'day Andrew, 

I've asked around and as far as I know none of us are familiar with the Thermarest Mondoking 3D mat. From looking at the specs online it seems that it is very comparable to the Megamat in almost every way except it does seem to have a higher R value at 11.4 compared to 9.5 for the Megamat. 

I'm sorry we couldn't give you more details about the Mondoking, I would suggest looking for a local camping shop that has one in store so you can try it in store - that way you'd be able to get a feel for how comfy it is in real life. 

I can say though, that the Megamat 10 is our top selling mat in our range, and arguably the most comfortable if that helps.

How do you join two mega mat lxw's3 answers

Hi can you please explain how two of the Exped Mega Mat LXW join together. I see some pics with the straps (coupler kit) then other pics where they have a clip type joiner on the corner of the mats as I think is the case with the YouTube video.

- Buddina(4 months ago)

Howdy Allan. The only real way of joining these two mats together is by the coupling kit that can be purchased as an accessory. Unfortunately the manufacturer no longer supplies these as part of the kit and haven't done so for a little while now. However, they are pretty cheap really to hold the two mattresses firmly together. The great thing about the Megamats is the square edges, which allows two mats to hold together almost without dips and gaps. The straps simply go at about the shoulder and the thigh or ankle heights, strapping around and clipping together underneath. The Snowys Code for the Coupler kit is 47563 and you can find the most recent everyday low price by putting that into our Search Bar and hitting enter. This will take you directly to the product.

- Snowys(4 months ago)

We used the older version the over the weekend. It was super comfy. We joined two together with the coupler kit, it makes the size of a queen bed. Maybe a queen fitted sheet or doona cover might hold them together? If you can't get your hands on one.

- Vic(4 months ago)

Thanks for the tip Erica! If you can find the right size fitted sheet that holds the mats together snugly, then that would be a great alternative to the coupler kit.

G'day Brad, 

This is indeed an updated version of the much-loved Megamat 10 LXW from Exped. The updated model now has a smart pack sack (carry bag), as well as being available in green. Not a whole lot to write home about, but why change a good thing.

- Yeppoon(5 months ago)

exped with oztent gecko or king goanna stretcher1 answer

We love our megamats, but are now looking to put them on stretchers so we don't have to get up and down at ground level. Can they be used with the Gecko stretcher (190cm long) or is it better to go with the King Goanna (210 cm) since the megamat is 197 cm in length?

- Woodstock(6 months ago)

G'day Sharon,

I'd recommend using the King Goanna Stretcher, it will be much better than having the mat hanging over the end of the stretcher.

Video shows these 2 mats can join without coupler kit1 answer

Hi, I have been looking at the Exped MegaMat 10LXW and on an old video clip it shows that 2 mats could be joined. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GioeLw9jfHk 3min20sec in. Does this feature no longer exist for this model?

- Brisbane(6 months ago)

G'day Sarah, 

We've been selling the Megamat range for several years, and we've never come across that feature before, so it must be something that Exped phased out. 

The current Megamat 10 LXW model doesn't come with the attached joiner feature, so the best way to connect two together would be with a Universal Coupler Kit.

Hi there, would you be able to fit two of these mats side by side in a Malamoo 3p Xtra pop up tent? Thanks1 answer

You can most definitely fit 2 x Exped Megamat 10 LXW Sleeping Mats in the Malamoo 3 Xtra, and you'll have some space for your gear.

Two mats in an oztent rv11 answer

Hi there. Do you know whether two of the megamat 10 will fit into an oztent rv1. I think they might just squeeze in but I'm not sure.

- Ashfield(6 months ago)

Hi Nathan,

It is slightly too wide to fit comfortably in the tent but it might squeeze in, with pretty much no room to spare. Both mats together are 154cm wide and the tent is 150cm. It will be a squeeze!

The length itself will be fine as the mats are 197cm long and you have 215cm to play with. If you think this might be too cramped then it might pay to look for a narrower mat.

Would two fit in Blackwolf TurboLite 380?2 answers

Could you fit two side by side in one half of the Blackwolf TurboLite 380 with the internal wall in place? Thanks

- Brisbane(6 months ago)

Hi Lucy, I haven't had the pleasure of seeing the Turbo Cabin 380 in the flesh yet, so I'm working on the assumption that the divider will go straight down the middle of the tent. If that's the case, then you'll be able to fit these two Megamats next to each other in one room nicely. We'll get in touch with Black Wolf on Monday to confirm the internal layout of the tent and let you know. 

- Snowys(6 months ago)

Hi Lucy, 

We've just spoken to Black Wolf and they've confirmed the divider is in the middle, so you should have no problem fitting two Megamat 10 LXW's with the wall in place.

Exped Megamat 10 vs Blackwolf Mega Deluxe - in Jet Tent Bunker1 answer

Hi, I'm looking for a great sleeping mat to go in my Jet Tent Bunker (not the XL version). My research is pointing me to the Exped Megamat 10 LXW and the Blackwolf Mega Deluxe. I've seen the other replies here comparing them but how are they specifically in the Jet Tent Bunker? Comfort-wise, general fit-wise, non-slip around, etc. Also if there's a superior option to consider feel free to put it out there. Thanks in advance

- Mudgee(7 months ago)

G'day Charles, 

I decided the only way to figure out the answer to this question for sure was to test the Megamat and the Mega Deluxe out in the Jet Bunker we have on display. 

Both fit inside the Bunker - though the Megamat was a little more of a tight fit, and neither will move around if you toss and turn. 

As for comfort, I would say that the Exped Megamat was the winner - I personally found it was more supportive as the mat stays level to the edges (instead of tapering off like the Mega Deluxe) and overall, it was just more cushiony. 

I hope this was helpful Charles! 

- Snowys(7 months ago)

Keep away from heat?1 answer

Hi guys Quick question I have read in the instructions somewhere that it says to keep the mat away from heat eg fires,cars and hot tents as this could expand the air in the mat and stretch the stitching which in turn would rip. My question is we live in Australia and a hot tent is kind of a everyday thing. Does a hot tent actually ruin these mats? Thanks

- Grafton(8 months ago)

G'day Liam,

As far as I can find we haven't had any issues with heat causing damage to the Megamat 10, but given the hot weather we have here I can see how reading that would cause you a bit of concern. 

As far as we can make of it, the instructions are just setting out the limitations for this mat in intense direct heat e.g. 45 degree heat in a vehicle, or a fire. 

In a shaded tent, or covered up in the back of the car this mat should be fine, even in warm weather conditions - as long as you keep it out of direct sunlight for long periods of time.

Diference with OzTrail 4WD SI mattress1 answer

Hi, bit of a dummy question, sorry. What are the main differences between these and a mat like the OzTrail SI mats? Weight, rolled up size, sleeping surface...? Trying to understand the price difference...

- Sydney(9 months ago)

G'day David,

That's not a dummy question - we're always happy to clarify for you! The main difference is the quality and overall comfort between the two. 

The Exped Megamat is lighter, packs up smaller, is made from higher quality foam, and has a nylon as opposed to a Velour PVC Vinyl surface (which is smoother to touch). 

That's not to say that the Oztrail 4WD mat range isn't good - it does represent good value, and we've had positive feedback about it from our customers. But the Exped Megamat is the most luxurious mat we carry so it does sit above the 4WD mat range.

Using exped in a swag1 answer

Have you sold many to go in a swag? Can you roll them up inside a swag?

- Swan hill(10 months ago)

G’day Rick, across the board this is probably our bestselling sleeping mat, we find that people love it for camping and touring as it’s just so darn comfortable. When deflated the Megamat will roll up inside your swag just fine. We’ve had good feedback from other customers who do that, and our staff use it in their swags too - and they all find it works really well.

How compatible would the Exped be with a Sundowner titan camp stretcher. 1 answer

- BLACKBURN, VIC(10 months ago)

G'day Ian, the Exped Megamat 10 LXW is very compatible with the Sundowner Titan Camp Stretcher. I’ve put the Megamat on top of the stretcher and it fits really well as there's no overflow of mattress, and I found it doesn't slide around when you lie down on it - so it's a solid combination.

Also deciding between Exped Megamat 10 and BlackWolf Mega Deluxe1 answer

Black Wolf seems to list smaller deflated size than Exped, but wondering if stated deflated sizes are 'real' and if one is easier to deflate than the other to get to this size?? (Am so tired trying to wrangle my 4WD mat into something that won't take up half the car!!). Also both are rated R9.5 for warmth - is one better than the other for cold sleepers like me??? thanks !!!!

- Elwood(12 months ago)
G'day Judy - I've just taken a tape measure to both the Megamat 10 and Mega Deluxe and there isn't much in it at all. The Megamat, packaged in its lightweight sack, is 81 x 18Ø cm. The Mega Deluxe, in its plastic shipping sleeve, came in at 80 x 18Ø cm. As for R rating - even if there was a negligible difference you're probably not going to feel it. R9.5 insulation is extremely good - those camping in alpine environments would enjoy it. As a cold sleeper, you'll appreciate it too. Doesn't really narrow it down, does it? Hehe. My personal preference is for the Megamat with its square sides and overall 'feel' and quality. For me, it's just a nicer mat. Hope that helps. Cheers, Paul

Exped1 answer

I do all my camping in a swag on the ground, im a 120kg, i leave my swag rolled when not in use and when i am travelling with it it rolls around the back, from the reveiws i have read say that the exped if extremly comfortable i was wondering if it would still be the best option. thanks cameron

- Armidale(1 year ago)
G'day Cameron - If you're after the ultimate in camping comfort, yes, definately buy one of these! (How's that for a pitch? But seriously...) Deflated, it'll roll up into your swag just fine. We have a guy here, Ben, who does just that. Before you use it for the first time, though, unroll it, let it loft up for a few days, then roll 'er back up. A Megamat is absolutely worth the investment. Hope that helps. Cheers, Paul

Will 2x Exped Megamat 10 LXW's fit into an Explore Planet Earth Speedy 3-Man Tent1 answer

without folding up at ends. If not are there similar mats that are either shorter or not as wide. I already have an Explore Planet Earth Speedy 3-Man Tent.

- O'HALLORAN HILL, SA(1 year ago)
I can't say that I have tried this sorry Liz, but it's going to be tight. Combined, two Megamat 10LXW measure 154 cm wide and 197 cm long. I'm pretty sure that given the rounded ends, the corners of the mat will be sitting pretty firm against the interior. The Megamat 10 Duo might be a better choice, alternatively the EPE Sim Camper F100 is still 10cm thick but thinner and will fit easier. I'd recommend putting your tent up in the backyard and using a tape measure to get an idea of how the mats will fit and how much space you will have to spare.

Does the Exped Megamat fit in a 2 person malamoo pop up,tent?1 answer

- STAWELL, VIC(1 year ago)
One will Debbie but it will be too tight for two of them. Even with one mat the corners of the mat will be touching the ends. The Malamoo tents have dimensions similar to hiking tents, if you want a roomy 2 person pop-up tent then the Malamoo Xtra is the way to go, but will still be too tight to fit a pair of Megamat's into.

Compatible with the Oztrail Anywhere bed?1 answer

I have a Queen size Oztrail Anywhere Bed, which I find cold to sleep on. Would two of these joined be ok on the 'frame' of the bed?

- EAST ALBURY, NSW(1 year ago)
I can't say I've tried, or heard of anyone trying this Donna. My thoughts are that it may become a little unstable. Two Megamat's together will be slightly wider than the Anywhere bed, and I'm not sure how you would keep them from sliding around. You would probably be better using an open cell foam mat that can be secured under a fitted sheet, a combination of one Oztrail Camp Mat and one Oztrail Camp Mat Jumbo may be a better solution, provided you had a fitted sheet to accommodate them. Search for product codes 40534 and 36276 to see these on our website. Failing this, I would just add lots of blankets under your sheets.
- Snowys(1 year ago)

can two of them joined?2 answers

Hi, I'd like to go camping with my partner but like the idea of having two mattress for easier packing up and individual adjustment of softness / hardness. Can the Exped mats be joined together together like the Black Wolf Mega Deluxe? Also, what fitted sheet do you recommend for the Exped mats? Thank you

- Reservoir(1 year ago)
Hi Robert, these used to come with coupler kits for joining, but they don't any more. We don't have the kits available but they are basically just big straps that go right around the mat, you could make these up with some webbing and clips. The only double fitted sheet we have is from Black Wolf. Given these are designed to fit over two Black Wolf Mega Deluxe mats, it should then also fit over two Exped Megamat's.
- Snowys(1 year ago)

Hi Robert - We always join our self inflatable mattresses (King Single Size) with a regular Queen Size Fitted Sheet. It keeps the mats together and clean.

Instructions and storage1 answer

2 questions: - The instructions says that I can "insert the toggle attached to the valve cap into the inflation valve” to speed up inflation. What does it mean by the ‘toggle'? Is it part of the mini-pump? - It also says the mat should be stored unrolled. This seems a bit silly - half the point of purchasing a camping mat is for its portability and compactness. Is it really bad to store it rolled up in its stuffsack?

- 2604(1 year ago)
Hi Jonathon, the toggle they are referring to is attached to the valve cap on the mat, not the pump. It looks the same as a zipper pull normally seen on clothing. The premise behind inserting it into the inflation valve is to open up the one way rubber (green I think) valve inside, this allows air to enter the mat faster than when the mat is trying to pull air past the valve. As for storage, it is better to store it uncompressed, but it won't destroy your mat, The benefits of storing the mat uncompressed is that it inflates quicker when used next as the foam does not maintain memory in a compressed state. It can also allow better aeration of the mat, particularly if you have inflated the mat by mouth and their is risk of moisture inside. I currently have mine stored compressed, but will let it out of the bag if I find the space to store it that way. I hope this all makes sense, give us a call if you have any questions. 1300 914 007.

Is the Exped Megamat slow to inflate/deflate?1 answer

Ben, thanks for your response to my enquiry regarding comparison between the Exped and the Black Wolf. Further to this, would you consider the Exped slow to inflate/deflate in comparison to other self-inflating mats? I've read some reviews (e.g. http://www.outdoorgearlab.com/Camping-Mattress-Reviews/Exped-MegaMat-10), which state that the Exped really doesn't inflate enough by itself, and 10 mins(!) of hand-pumping is required to sufficiently inflate. What's your experience with time to inflate?

- Brisbane(1 year ago)
You're right Matt, the Exped Megamat does not fully inflate independently, it is designed this way. A lot of the internal foam has been hollowed out to save on packed size and weight, as a result it needs a little assistance to inflate to a firm state. A mini pump is included with the mat to assist with this. As for deflating the mat, it is much the same as other self inflating mats on the market, possible even easier as there is less foam to compress inside the mat, so you are likely to get a smaller rolled size on the first go.
- Snowys(1 year ago)

Hi, in your experience, how would you rate the Exped Megamat 10 LXW against the Blackwolf Mega Deluxe?1 answer

- Brisbane(1 year ago)
Hi Matt, it comes down to small things when comparing the differences between these two mats. The Exped mat costs a little more, and for this money you get the unique Exped flat valves which are compatible with the included pump and enables easy adjustment of the air inside the mat. The Exped mat also offers a slightly better warmth to weight ratio, and has square edges which creates a larger sleeping surface. I have an Exped mat, and would purchase another if the need arose.

Are the valves "cheap" or durable? 2 answers

As per the October 2014 question, are the valves "cheap" or durable? No point having a spectacular mattress in terms of insulation & comfort if even one of the essentials (valves) are flawed.

- New Norfolk(2 years ago)
Hi Murray, the quality of the valves is in line with the standards upheld by Exped in all their products. Carlos obviously had concerns when he reviewed this product back in October, but I am confident he would not have had any issues with the valves failing on his mat. I have dealt with Exped mats for more than six years now, and never had a warranty claim over valves. I hope this instills confidence for you into the brand, I certainly have no reservations in recommending it.

It's a great question and one I have had myself observing the soft plastic valve. Basically the valve is really not they important as the foam will almost hold up my 100kg frame. The valve cap is really what seals the air and it seams to work perfectly.

Are Exped mattresses bonded?1 answer

- Grafton(2 years ago)
Hi Alison, if by 'bonded' you mean that the outer shell is laminated to the inner foam, then yes, Exped self inflating range of mattresses are bonded, including the Megamat. The shell fabrics are hydrolysis resistant so the lamination is less prone to breakdown by moisture inside the mat.
