    Amok draumr and exped mats

    Hi all. Iíve seen that the exped downmat will work with the draumr but Iím curious if anyone has tried the megamat or deepsleep models in a dramur?

    Itís definitely a car camping setup, but Iím not even sure if it would work. I canít tell the direction of the baffles with the megamat or deepsleep models from the online photos. Iím guessing they might be horizontal, in which case they wouldnít work. I thought Iíd ask the knowledgeable group here in case anyone has tried it.

    Thanks

    The Draumr need a pad with baffles running head to toe for best results.
    So hard to say on the 2 pads you mentioned.

    I have used Exped syn and down mats in a number of hammocks including a draumr, as well as some others with cross-tubes. The expeds work great and are sufficient for most needs. I really don't see why you would want to use a megamat. Although I don't know what a deepsleep is, I am assuming it is closer to the megamat than the syn/down 7 or 9 series.

    I agree using a megamat (even if possible) certainly isnít ideal. I might want the mega mat (or deepsleep) for tent car camping with others. Dual purposing would save me a bit of dough. Sounds like there are better ways to do that though.

    I sent an email to exped and they just replied. Looks like the megamat is probably out - it has horizontal baffles. Iíve not seen the deepsleep model but weirdly they said it doesnít contain baffles. I have no idea how that would work. Their other models have lengthwise baffles, which explains why the down and syn work well.

    i think it's awfully close to too large for the draumr

    the synmat9 is about as large as you can go


    not fully inflated, it would work but that's not ideal imo

    Yeah it looks like the deepsleep MW would fit but would be a bit short. The megamat not so much. All in all itís probably not worth the hassle but I would be curious to know if anyone out has both and wants to try it
