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.

  • Huge 10cm thickness
  • FlatValve technology for easy inflation, deflation and adjustment
  • Velvety honeycomb finish face fabric
  • Individually factory tested for airtight integrity

Great for 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.

Exped on the CSR trip

Hi, Just returned from the Canning Stock Route (CSR) trip using my new Exped Megamat. It was terrific. I actually inserted it into my Otent large sleeping bag and it inflated really well in such a confined space. It was mega comfortable and rolling up the sleeping bag made it easy to expel the air out of the Megamat. The whole lot folded up very compact and made it easy to store in the back of the Landcruiser. I used it on top of a Bourke & Wills easy fold stretcher. After the first night I had a great sleeping experience and is now my camping sleeping set-up of choice. Best self inflating mat I have every owned & I've owned a few. Good one Exped.

Swag/Stretcher swag sizing1 answer

Can you recommend a stretcher swag/ Swag that will fit this

- Brisbane(4 weeks ago)

G'day Adam,

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.

Bag suitable for 4 mattresses1 answer

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?

- East Fremantle (1 month ago)

G'day Alex,

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.

- Snowys(1 month ago)

Would 2 mats fit inside an outdoor connection pop up 3 person tent1 answer

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?

- Oatley(1 month ago)

G'day Irene,

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.

- Snowys(1 month ago)

Is there any difference between the red and green versions?1 answer

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

- Brisbane(1 month ago)

G'day Lucy,

There is no difference between colours in the Exped Megamat 10LXW. We only have new models of both in stock.

Exped mega 10 sea to summit deluxe1 answer

How do the mega mat 10cm compare to the sea to summit deluxe 10 cm. comfort quality etc thanks in advance

- Act(1 month ago)

G’day Dean,

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. 

- Snowys(1 month ago)

Coupled megamat on a stretcher1 answer

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?

- Calamvale(1 month ago)

G'day Glenn, 

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. 

- Snowys(1 month ago)

Special1 answer

Hi I'm wanting to buy of these, but you sale price runs out in 14 days. Which is 6 days after the time that I will have the money to buy. Can i still get the sale price??

- Melbourne(1 month ago)

G'day Sue,

Absolutely! It's not something we usually do, but we're happy to bend the rules a little on this occasion because you asked so nicely and have given us plenty of notice!

Can you send us an email at service@snowys.com.au to let us know of your intentions and then just give us a buzz when you do receive the money and we can organise the Exped Megamat at the sale price for you.

Will this fit in a Coleman 3 travelling tent 1 answer

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

- Townsville(1 month ago)

G'day 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?1 answer

What is the best stretcher to put this on?

- East Fremantle(1 month ago)

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 months 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.

- Snowys(3 months ago)

Is this the updated version?1 answer

Just wondering if this mat is the 2017 updated model

- Lyndoch(3 months ago)

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

- Snowys(3 months ago)

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(5 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(6 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(6 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(6 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(6 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. 

- Snowys(6 months ago)

New model?1 answer

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.

- Sydney(7 months ago)

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. 

- Snowys(6 months ago)

Mat covers1 answer

Do you sell the Exped covers for these mats?

- Yeppoon(7 months ago)

G'day Adam, 

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. 

- Snowys(7 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(7 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.

- Snowys(7 months ago)

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(7 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.


- Snowys(7 months ago)

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

- Bronte(7 months ago)

G'day Jeremy, 

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

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(8 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.

- Snowys(8 months ago)

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(8 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(8 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(9 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(9 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(10 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(10 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(11 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(12 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(1 year 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
- Snowys(1 year ago)

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.
