The Zempire Monstamat is the affordable yet plush camping mattress that you’ve been looking for.
The surface of this mat is made from 40D Super Stretch Ripstop fabric for durability and comfort, while the base is Polyester TPU which is a little more hardwearing. The Monstamat has a 3D construction, is cross-cored, and features anti-bacterial foam to prevent moisture from building up inside the mat making it a quality mat for the price.
With 10cm of cushioned support, the Monstamat really amps up the competition in the camping mat category. The high-volume valve lets air flow through easily, so you can inflate and deflate this mat with ease. This mat is also fully bonded, so you won’t have one hip sink into the ground onto the cold tent floor while you sleep.
Carrying and storing this mat is easy-peasy, as it comes with its own carry bag with an included strap. The Zempire Monstamat has an excellent balance of price, weight and comfort for those who are after a camping mat that won’t burn a hole in your wallet.
This is a great mat. Nice and supportive and fits on a camp stretcher bed too. Being bonded, it is easy to roll over without the covering moving with you. Easy to inflate and rolls up well too.
We bought this mat because we have tried many self inflating mats in the past and they are too hard. This one is so nice, I am a side sleeper and it is really supportive and my shoulder doesn't dig in to the ground at all. Well worth it.
Over the moon with my purchase. The day they create a mat that’s at least 12/14 cm thick......I will purchase in a heartbeat
Fantastic mats, makes sleeping in the ground so soft.
Easy to use especially for kids, easy to maintain, durable, these mats are brilliant.
Always a great night sleep on the megamat.
Love it. Very comfortable and very easy to inflate/deflate.
I put this mat in my Bunker XL, and have a great sleep.
It's very easy to self inflate, no extra air required for me, and packing up is a breeze. Very easy to get back into its bag.
The valve system works a treat.
A great mattress at a sensible price, and with Snowys usual high quality service, happy camper all round !!.
So comfortable. Cold doesn't come through. Easy to roll up - no need for 2-3 attempts to get all the air out.
Puchased 2 for the adults and will be buying more for our hoorang kids.
So Ive got the thickest Kathmandu's, the Dune 4wd supreme 3D, light weight thermarests, blackwolf and the sea to summit comfort plus so its fair to say I have tried a few. For comfort this zempired is the winner with the dune a close second but its not bonded and dearer. The sea to summit is amazing for its weight but still cant out do the zempired! Love it as a swag double mattress replacement and 2 singles are the go as so much easier to wrangle....lighter. the one way valve for in/deflate makes life much easier. Love it!
Fantastic review, Phil... thanks for sharing! Laine :)
Couldn't tell I wasn't sleeping on the Xped. It's a little narrower and a little heavier than the Xped but it inflates much faster (even from new) and doesn't need 'topping up' like the Xped nearly always does. Quality seems excellent. Very comfy to sleep on and at the price is a bargain. BTW, Zempire is an abbreviation of Zombie Empire and is a program introduced by the Slovakian Government to gainfully employ Zombies and keep them off the street where they were scaring small children. Or am I thinking of a Brad PItt movie......
Good product which is easy to use and very comfortable. Happy to recommend it.
Hi, just wondering if this mat will fit in the Oztent Jet Tent Bunker (not the XL)? The dimensions suggest it is too long, but just wondering if it actually does fit? Thanks.
I've just tried our display model Monstamat Single Camp Mat in the Oztent Bunker Stretcher and it fits perfectly.
How do these mats go as far as night temperature - are they the same as an airbed? Do they have any thermal properties? Thanks in advance
These will be much warmer than a traditional airbed as they're filled with an insulating foam rather than cold air. They get an insulation R-value of 9.5 which is really high. You can read a bit more about what R-values mean in our blog here.
Will 2 of these work side by side or will they move apart during the night
Two of the Zempire Monstamat Singles will work together side by side but may move apart overnight. You could use a Universal Mat Coupler Kit if you wanted to make sure they don't move too much.
Just wondering how it compares, it looks like in the video that the zempiare inflates to be firmer? (not as much loose fabric)
The Zempire Monstmat Single Camp Mat and the Sea to Summit Comfort DLX SI Sleeping Mat RW have some similarities in design and features. I've had a lie on both of these mats and they have a pretty similar
Is there any difference between the Zempire Megamat and the Zempire Monstamat? I bought the Megamat a few months back and was wanting another but noticed the change in name.
The Zempire Monstamat is the same as the Zempire Megamat, they've just changed the name slightly!
So i have owned 3 self inflating mats now double oztrail unbonded and another double unbonded brand from clark rubber both failed the one tore one broke the seam and the bonded singles were oztrail also 400$for 2 and they both let glue go around the valves first time used at the hospital why should i buy one of these whats the difference these look better but are they or am i wasting my money convince me please my camping life is suffering not to mention my back
I can absolutely understand your hesitation on not wanting to get another dud! For what it's worth, I own a Zempire Monstamat and it's been nothing but amazing for me! It's probably the one I'd recommend when people come asking for advice on the best mattress to get. I reckon it's on par with the more expensive options at a fraction of the cost.
Hi, I can see that the bottom of the mat has a very bright colour. My concern is that it can stain easily. Should I worry about that? Does it come in darker colours?
I actually own the Zempire Monstamat Single Camp Mat and whilst the bottom can get a little dirty, it does wipe off relatively easily and staining is pretty minimal. Even if you do get a couple of stains, you don't see them as it's the bottom of the mattress. This is the only colour variety that these mattresses come in.
Hi, I Hi, 'm based in Brisbane which tends to have hot and humid summers. Will this mat make my body warmer? Is it warmer than a regular airbed in the summer?
The Zempire Monstamat Single Camp Mat is suitable for summer use, but it may be a little warmer than an airbed depending on the air temperature. If you sleep on it with a summer weight sleeping bag or sheet you should be fine!
Just wondering how you would recommend storing these for prolonged periods of time? Unrolled and inflated or packed away?
You shouldn't do any damage at all to the Zempire Megamat Single Camp Mat by storing it rolled up and it will definitely be easier to keep clean if you store it rolled up.
A few reviews suggest they lose air. Youve sold them a while now, do they lose air? How reliable are the valves and mats in general? Many warranty returns?
We've noticed that a few people have said they lose a little bit of air, it's not something I can confirm personally as I haven't spent the night on one. One thing we did think of is perhaps spinning the little non-return valve around inside the main plug might help to slow that down. As far as I know, we haven't had any warranty issue with these mats since we began selling them. Like a lot of the Zempire range, I think they represent great value at a reasonable price point compared to some of the more expensive offerings available.
Thanks Tim. What do you mean by turning the valve around. Don’t you do that when you top it up with air and close the cap? Do they hold much air? The video says it only needs a few breaths - so does it matter if they leak? Value for money is only when the product does what it’s meant to do. Just trying to work this out.
Sorry, it's a difficult one to explain but the plug has a little non-return valve inside it that can be rotated to stop air moving in a particular direction. See the image below. By rotating it after inflating you're just giving yourself an extra barrier to keep the air trapped in the mat. From what I've read in peoples reviews I wouldn't say the mats are leaking to a point that it is a problem at all, there are just a few comments in there that suggest they don't hold air quite as well as the Exped Megamats. They've been very popular since we got them in and as I said we haven't seen any problems with them, so I'm more than happy to recommend them as a great alternative to some of the other more expensive options we have.
Suitability for Oztrail stretcher tent
I apologise for the delay in answering your question. Oztrail have two stretcher tent models - the Easy Fold, and the Ultimate All Weather Stretcher, and the dimensions of the Zempire Megamat are 198 x 68.
The Easy Fold is going to be too small for the Zempire Megamat, as it's 190L and 80W, but the Ultimate All Weather Stretcher is 220 x 90 so there should be plenty of room for the Zempire Megamat.
Just to clarify everyone, apologies for this but I was just going by the measurements, my colleague kindly tried this out in person - and the Zempire Megamat does indeed fit in the Easy Fold Stretcher Tent.
What has more internal foam between the exped and Zempire? And which one holds up body weight best without air? Packed size doesn’t matter so much to me - the one with the most filling is the one I’ll buy.
It's hard to answer this one Jez, realistically, both mats need air in order to be comfortable, and both will flatten just as much as the other under an individuals weight without having been inflated. As for the amount of filling, both are 10cm thick and have cored foam between the top and bottom layers. I think the weight of the mat is the best way to judge the volume of foam used, and the Zempire weighs in the heaviest, which likely means it has slightly more foam than the Exped. I hope this helps.
Can you fit 2 or 3 of these into a 3p epe speedy tent? We currently use 3 thin self inflating mats in ours with the corners of the mts turned up slightly.
You can fit 2 of the Zempire Megamat Single Camp Mats in your EPE Speedy 3 Tent but you won't be able to fit a third in there.
Do you know if there are any weight restrictions on this mattress I weigh 120kg
There isn't an official weight limit on the Zempire Megamat Single Camp Mat but you'll be absolutely fine using it, it will handle weights well over 120kg.
Wou so the blackwolf mat sheet fit this?
I've just double checked for you and the Black Wolf Fitted Sheet fit the Zempire Megamat Single Camp Mat like a glove!
No, I don't think it's too tight. It shouldn't affect the mattress at all!
I'm looking to use it for my kids, but one of them in particular really feels the cold, so I want a decent R rating for them.
Unfortunately, there isn't any official R-Value available for the Zempire Megamat Single Camp Mat. I've got one and know that they're relatively warm but I can't back that up with any R-Value evidence I'm sorry.
You're right, this is a new rating. We'll get our website updated now. How exciting, this is the same rating as the Exped!
Could you tell me if this mattress will fit ok on an oz trail deluxe stretcher please? Thank you
I just had a crack at this with our display models and you shouldn't have any issues at all using your Zempire Megamat Single Camp Mat on an Oztrail Deluxe Stretcher.
Which pumps are compatible to add some pressure?
The Zempire Megamat Single Camp Mat has quite a large valve on it. You can use one of Zempire's Pumps, which will allow you to add pressure although they don't completely seal over the valve. Alternatively, you can just use your mouth to add some pressure to your mat. It shouldn't take any more than about 10 breaths to give your mat about as much pressure as you'd want without overinflating it.
Comfort can be a fairly subjective thing but I'll give it my best crack! I've just had a lie down on both the EPE F100 & the Zempire Megamat Single Camp Mat. The EPE was a lot firmer and felt a little more rugged, had a thicker material too. I did find the Zempire a little more comfortable, I sank lower into it and it was a lot softer but I still didn't find myself lying on the floor. I think a big part of it comes down to whether you prefer a softer or firmer mattress.
can this be pumped to make it firmer? maybe with the exped pump?
I've just had a look at our display model of the Zempire Megamat Single Camp Mat downstairs and had a try with the Exped pump on it. The valve on the Zempire is a lot larger than the Exped, so the pump doesn't seal 100% well but when help flush against the valve, it definitely does inflate the mat more.
Are these mats suitable to put on a xtra large stretcher? And it sounds like they’ll help with keeping warmth too and stop coldness coming through a stretcher.
You'll have no issues whatsoever putting one of the Zempire Megamat Single Camp Mats on a camp stretcher. It'll definitely make you a fair bit warmer and more comfortable too!
How does this compare to the more expensive Megamat LXW10?? We have one of those already but need another, so are considering this instead seeing as its a lot cheaper. Other than width is there much difference?
I've just laid on them both in store and can't feel a difference, however, a whole night sleep would really be the true test of comfort.
The only major difference I would mention is that cost naturally differentiates quality, but the Zempire Mat is so new and so this is a bit of an unknown as to how well it performs over the journey in comparison to the Exped Megamat.
