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.
So happy with this mat. Super comfortable to sleep on and easy to inflate. The bag that comes with it is genius - you don't have to struggle to get it back in as it is a generous size and just wraps around the folded mat.
I bought this mat thinking that, like most things it won't be quiet as good as all the reviews say it is. I thought that even so it would be better than the others.
What I didn't realise was just how good it would be. Unbelievably comfortable and Snowy's service was excellent too.
A great experience.
Love this Mat super comfy. Needs to be store not rolled up or given an extra bit of time to inflate. It's definitely the best mat I've tried over the years
So light to carry Easy to inflate and unbelievably easy to deflate and put back in its roomy bag, which is a double plus Just love it
Simply the best camping mattress there is
Very firm self inflatable mattress. Have try it at home but cannot wait to try it bin Oct camping.
Nice wide mat and very comfortable and well insulated. It packs up very small and light. We got two of these to replace our old queen 4x4 mattress and they are much better. We ended up getting a 3rd for our daughter because we felt guilty they are so comfy and hopefully it will last her lifetime. They will be handy for sleep overs and unexpected guests, as well.
Excellent mat. Very comfortable and easy to inflate.
Very good mat, and comfortable. Definitely worth the money. The storage bag is well designed as well.
Best mat I've used by far. Love the square anti roll edging and the quick inflate time. Super comfy. Packs up nicely and the bag makes it easy to store. Happy campers!!
Whilst travelling to destination we put all our sleeping bags and mattresses in a black roof bag on top of our car. On previous mattresses I have left the seal open but rolled up to allow for expansion due to direct heat if I was to buy one of these should I do the same.
Absolutely, that would be recommended. We always encourage that any self-inflating mats be stored with the valve open and even during the day at camp, to keep the valve's open to prevent heat from stretching the laminated fabric.
I'm wondering whether to purchase another single exped mattress + the coupling straps (we already own one) or an exped duo for my husband and I. I'm a light sleeper so I'm happy to get another single with the coupling straps but we have a 3 year old who constantly hops into our bed during the night so that makes me think a duo might be better? When using the coupling straps, can you feel much of the join between the mattresses? If it feels pretty consistent across both mattresses then I might try the 2 singles for our situation?
Tough question but I'd probably stick with grabbing another single. Because the walls of the mats are quite steep they do fit together really well, you'll notice the join but it's not really pronounced. Having two singles will save you some money, be a bit easier to pack in a small space like a car boot and give you a bit of versatility if you end up needing a single mat. If you're able to pop in to the shop you'd be welcome to get a few singles out and try them out with the couple straps. I hope this helps!
Thanks for your answer Emily but any idea of when the megamat will be on sale next? 😀 As I would buy one then.
The Megamat is such a hot product, so we understand why you'd love to get it at an even better price. But our partnership with our Exped supplier means that we can only further discount the Megamat a couple of times a year.
We don't know when the next time that will be so I'd recommend subscribing to our Newsletter on our homepage and keeping your eyes peeled - as that's where we'll let you know about any upcoming deals.
Hi there, I purchased a gecko stretcher from you recently and was just checking if the megamat mattress will fit ok?
From comparing the dimensions, the Gecko stretcher is 190cm long, and the Megamat 10 is 197L – so there will be a little bit of overhang but it shouldn’t be very noticeable when you're sleeping on it.
Can you recommend a stretcher swag/ Swag that will fit this
Pretty much all our 1-person swags and stretcher tents except for the Oztrail and Darche Biker and Oztrail Cooper swag will fit the Exped Megamat 10LXW. You can view the 1-person swag range here.
I have just ordered another 2 of these (great sale you have on), meaning the whole family now get a comfortable bed. Is there a bag you would recommend that would fit all 4 mattresses in that is waterproof and dustproof, so I could put the mattresses on the roof rack. I was thinking something like the AOS Swag Bag king single? Would that hold 4 mattresses?
4 of the 10LXW mats will actually squeeze into the single AOS Swag Protection System bag. If you want a little more room to sneak a bit more gear in if required, then I would suggest you move up to the King Single or Double size.
From tent specs sleeping area is 200 mm long and these mats are 197 mm, so in theory they should fit. I am just wondering if in reality it would be a tight fit given the 10 cm height of the mat and the sloping ends of the tent. What are your thoughts?
I just tried this out in store and unfortunately, you can't fit 2x Exped Megamat 10 LXW into an Outdoor Connection Easy Up 3 tent.
Are they both the current model with the new carry bag? The red seems to have a different logo on, are there any differences other than that? Thanks
There is no difference between colours in the Exped Megamat 10LXW. We only have new models of both in stock.
How do the mega mat 10cm compare to the sea to summit deluxe 10 cm. comfort quality etc thanks in advance
In terms of quality, they are both on par with each other in terms of materials, and construction.
They do differ in terms of weight and size, the Megamat is a little heavier, and packs up bulkier than the Comfort DLX (reg wide size).
The Megamat has a higher R Value at 9.5 compared to the Comfort DLX at 5.2 so it will insulate better in cold conditions so that’s something to consider.
Comfort wise I would say that the Megamat has the edge over the Comfort DLX as it is a little denser – but both are top of the line mats.
Do you have a stretcher that would fit two of these mats coupled together? If not do you have a recommendation to elevate them off the ground?
So from comparing the dimensions of 2 x Megamat 10's joined together with the double stretchers we have in our range - it looks like the Easy Fold Queen Stretcher from Oztrail is the best fit at 200L x 144W - but we don't have those in stock at this time unfortunately.
Aside from a stretcher, there probably isn't another option to get the same amount of height off the ground, aside from a double air bed but that wouldn't be very stable, and would probably slide around if you moved while asleep.
There is always the option of looking outside of our range for a stretcher that will accommodate the width and length of the two mats.
Hi team will this mat fit in a coleman gold 3 person travelling tent thanks for your time you do a great job cheers Tony
Thanks for your comment. If you're referring to the Traveller 3P tent, then yes this mat will fit inside but if you're trying to actually sleep 3 people on three of these mats then unfortunately it's too much of a squeeze sorry. One or two will fit nicely but since the width of the mat is 77cm and the tent width is 190cm, two is the maximum number of mats that can be accommodated.
I hope that answers your question.
What is the best stretcher to put this on?
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.
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.
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.
We hear you! However, unfortunately, we have to source all of our Exped products directly from Europe and at this stage, we're not in a position to be able to stock spare bags. Sorry!
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).
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Hi, can you please advise if this is an updated version of the 10LXW that was on sale for 229 (full price 299) a couple of days ago? The weight spec has changed slightly and all the existing reviews and Q&A's are gone. Thanks.
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.
Do you sell the Exped covers for these mats?
I believe that Exped do sell a mat cover made specifically for the Megamat 10, but I've checked and it doesn't seem to be available to us in this region, so unfortunately we can't track one down for you Adam.
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?
I'd recommend using the King Goanna Stretcher, it will be much better than having the mat hanging over the end of the stretcher.
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?
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.
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.
We've actually written a whole guide on what beds will fit inside or pop up tent range (which you might find helpful) which you can check out here.
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.
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.
Could you fit two side by side in one half of the Blackwolf TurboLite 380 with the internal wall in place? Thanks
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.
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.
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
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!
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
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.
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...
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.
Have you sold many to go in a swag? Can you roll them up inside a swag?
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.
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.
Hi Guys, Just wondering if you stock the exped coupler kit for exped mattress. I recently bought this mattress from you and would like to couple the 2 mattress together, Thanking you in advance.
Hi Douglas, we are hoping to get some Exped Coupler Kits in next week but nothing’s been confirmed yet. If you’d like to give us a call on 1300 914 007 we can take your details down for our inquiry system for this product. When you drop us a line, make sure mention this online inquiry so we can get up to speed.
G'day Douglas, if you're still interested in purchasing an Exped Coupler Kit then I've just received confirmation that they have arrived in store. The kits are not on sale on our website just yet, but they will be online very soon.
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 !!!!
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
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.
This event spoiled our whole camping holiday and we still don't know how to fix the problem. Paying good money to get the best for my wife, what am I to do now???? Is there any Warranty????????
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?
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
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.
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?
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?
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.
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.
