The Explore Planet Earth Camper Super Deluxe Sim F100 Sleeping mat has quality features and at 10cm thick is the perfect choice for campers wanting a little luxury whilst maintaining a small pack size.
Made with a durable 75D polyester exterior, brass valves and a compressible open cell foam interior, the Camper Super Deluxe Mat inflates quickly and easily to a luxurious 10cm thickness without the need for noisy air pumps.
Press studs along each side enable two mats to be joined together while anti-slip dots on the base help keep your mat in place overnight. Supplied with stuff sack and compression straps, the EPE Camper Super Deluxe Self Inflating Mat offers luxury without the weighty price tag.
Our mat split because it's simply too overstuffed for the inferior cover material. Assessor refused to honour warranty. So dissapointed, it cost a fortune, so was well looked after. The $30 version from wanderer has taken all sorts of abuse and is still going strong years later.
I'm sorry to hear that your new mat is causing some issues. Our warranty team seem to believe that you might've gone direct to EPE with your warranty claim? If so, please give us a call (1300 914 007) - we want to help. Laine :)
After reading the reviews and questions, I thought I would be sent the newer model with 2 valves after someone had asked previously which model they were receiving. Unfortunately I was sent the older model with only 1 valve. Still happy with the shipping time and service.i should of ask again prior to purchasing the mat, still a good mat and highly rated.
You must've received one of the last single-valve mats that we had in stock. If you were interested in swapping for the double-valve mat, please give us a call on 1300 914 007. Laine :)
Mine is the 2 valve model. It inflated quickly first time. Requires a bit of patience to roll it up so it fits in the bag, but it's not too difficult if you go slow and kneel on it as you go. I preferred mine with a bit of air let out, which is easily done if you lie on it and open a valve slightly until you're happy.
This is good value for money and I had a great night's sleep on this mat. When first unrolled it takes a while to self inflate and didn't inflate to it's full depth, so I added some air to it using a friend's pump. Second use it inflated perfectly on it's own. (Apparently this is not unusual and these mats should also be stored unrolled and inflated when not in use. A friend bought a more expensive brand which came with detailed care instructions and it said this.)
Got 2 mats to join. Mats are a bit narrower than black wolf etc. New design has 2 valves and are fast to inflate. Took 2 tries to get the 1st mat in the bag but i got the 2nd mat in the bag on the 1st try. I rolled with my hands and squashed with my knee as i rolled it. Mats are a bit noisy/slippery but with a sheet or sleeping bag it wont be too bad. Good comfort, i deflated my mat a bit to make it softer. (I am 95kg). I didn't touch the ground when side sleeping.
A good buy, would recommend!
Very comfortable, very fast inflation. Downside is that are hard to deflate but overall worth it. Expect to make 3 attempts to deflate so they fit in the bag.
This a great camping mat if you want a bit of extra comfort. It inflates easily and is light weight. My only small issue is that with only one valve it does take longer to roll up than other similar camping mats.
After using air mattresses for camping and dealing with the constant frustrations of having them deflate in the middle of the night, these self inflatable mats are a godsend!
They are so easy to set up and comfortable to sleep on. I like that they are able to be joined but I did find that they could do with being a little wider - will probably keep them separate next time. The mats are a bit time consuming to pack away small enough to fit back in the bag but overall, great mats!
what is the R value for this product
Explore Planet Earth don't supply an R value for their sleeping mats but if we had to take a guess, we would say it would be something like an R value of approximately 3. I do apologise that we couldn't give you a solid answer there Weiping.
Considering Explore F100, Black Wolf Black Wolf Deluxe or the Oz trail 4wd mat. Will be using on a stretcher what are the pros and cons, ie is Black Wolf worth the extra $$
The main difference between the three is the fill material and construction– as not all kinds of foam are going to give you the same level of comfort.
The Mega Deluxe has the densest foam (and feels similar to memory foam if that helps) and also has a softer surface. This one is best if you are a very frequent camper.
The F100 would be a step down from the Mega Deluxe in terms of comfort, it’s still going to be quite cushiony at 10cm thick, and has a synthetic feel surface - so this option is probably best if you camp occasionally.
The 4WD has a more basic foam construction so it’s the least dense of the three (and the heaviest), and has a velour top - so it’s probably the best option if you're not looking to make a big investment.
In this case I’d say that in the long term, the Black Wolf Mega Deluxe is worth the extra money as it is going to distribute your weight really well (without sinking into the mat) is easier to pack up, and and will provide the cushioning you need to be really comfortable.
I assume for a quick set up once they have expanded, these mattresses will need a top up to be blown up using lungs or pump. They are quite deep so may need extra air than other thinner mats.
I'e just double checked for you, and I've found that the Explore Planet Earth Sim Camper F100 Self Inflating Mat is actually not compatible with any pump, as the valve can't be completely removed.
To inflate this mat, you just unscrew it and the mat will start filling itself with air - if you need to top it up, you just undo the valve and it will top itself up.
I just had a go of it myself in store - I unscrewed the valve, put pressure on the mat to deflate it a bit, and then let go and it really does fill itself back up again quite quickly so you shouldn't have any trouble with it.
Is your stock the new model with 2 valves?
G’day Peter, I’ve just checked the stock of our Explore Planet Earth Sim Camper F100 Self Inflating Mat, and they definitely have two valves - so they are the latest model available.
Am I able to get a patch repair kit for this item?
Wondering if the double was available through you?
I can't believe how hard these mats (especially the F100) are to deflate. I had to use a Coleman airbed pump to suck the air out and even then I had to do this 2-3 times. Are there any tricks to deflating them? They inflate really quickly but I'm really disappointed with packing them away
Are there fitted sheets available for the F60 and F100 mats?
