The MegaMat series features top-notch comfort, easy packability and fast and convenient setup. The MegaMat 10 has been our Editors' Choice for several seasons now, and its little brother, the Exped MegaMat 7.5 LWX (Long! Wide! Extra!) cuts the fat by about half a pound, yet remains exceptionally comfortable. The 7.5 has an R-value of 6, which is plenty for almost all car camping situations. If you need the 9.5 R-value of the MegaMat 10 you're likely camping out on the ice, for most car campers or even folks out with pack animals in the lower 48, the 7.5 is warm enough. This version also an inch thinner than the 10, meaning it packs away smaller so you can cram more fun stuff in the back of the car, or more mattresses for your family.
While still pretty expensive, it's $20 cheaper than the MegaMat 10, and that's 20 more bucks for the gas tank or a 12 pack of something cold and frosty. In all seriousness, this mat is ridiculously comfortable, and the end of excuses for not sleeping outside. Want the same comfort for two? The Megamat 10 comes in a double-wide version.
