Hi, can this mat be compressed for long periods when not in use or is it best to leave inflated?
Jon - Newcastle, NSW(7 months ago)
Yep, ofcourse. This is an air filled mattress only with a thin layer of insulation, so there's no internal foam or anything you need to worry about. As long as it's packed away clean and dry, you shouldn't have any issues.

Pump Sack for exped?1 answer
Is the Sea to Summit pump sack compatible wiht the exped valve? The built in pump works fine, but takes some time to inflate the mat.
Garry - Kings Langley, NSW(10 months ago)
Its not directly compatible as the valve on the S2S mats and Exped mats are not the same, & the pump nozzle doesn't fit easily. You can make it work, just takes a bit of wriggling to get the nozzle connected properly.

This looks a good mat - but can you explain how the flatvalve works? I take it that I don't need an airpump for this mattress?
Siobhan - Brisbane, QLD(10 months ago)
There are two valves, and in and an out. You wont need a pump, as this one has an integrated hand pump indicated by the hand symbols which you can see in the product image. The function of the valves and the inflation is the same across all EXPED mats of this style. We havent done a Video of the Versa specifically, but if you watch from the 1:14 mark of the Synmat video, this will take you through it. Hope that helps.

Thanks Lauren. It's good to not have a pump (trying to stay minimalist). I have some bog standard Roman self-inflating mats that have done us very well over the last few years, but slowly replacing them with mats that take less space in the car boot - now the boys are bigger - so this looks like a winner. I've ordered one from you.

Is this sleeping mat noisy?2 answers
Hi all, is this mat more noisy when one is turning over, compared to the Sea to Summit Comfort Lite please?
Ana - Sydney, NSW(1 year ago)
We haven't done an actual comparison of this between the hiking mats, but these EXPED mats have a fabric/material cover that feels a lot less crunchy than some of the Sea to Summit alternatives which have more of a plastic-like feel. These particular mats are not known to be noisy at all, and we'd never had noisy feedback the previous versions which had been around for years and years. Hope that gives you a bit of peace of mind.
