    Downmats - REI Super Clearance

    Starting on Friday, 1/9, REI will have their super clearance sale, which includes an extra 50% off all clearance items whose price ends in .83. That means, after the discount, a Downmat 7 DLX will be $60. Holycrap

    There will be a TON more gear available, but the downmat deal jumped out at me. I love my downmats and can't recommend them enough.

    I'll be there early on Friday morning...

    How do the Downmats keep from accumulating moisture?

    Outer shell is WP and you don't breath into them to inflate, but use a supplied pump.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    I think the question was supposed to be "How does one keep the Downmats from accumulating moisture, realistically?

    OK, I see the clearance sale that is on NOW. Where is the info on the sale that starts Fri 1/9?

    Super clearance is both online and in stores. They don't publish the super clearance details online, but do email REI members in advance of the sale. I was at the store today and they were setting up all the bins to hold the clearance gear.

    I'll be waiting in line before the store opens

    Edit: The details of the sale are: Any item whose price ends in .83 will be an additional half off the already discounted price. They usually run these about twice a year to clear out mostly seasonal items.

    I plan to pick up a pair of ice axes, some assorted climbing gear, and a bunch of cold weather clothing.

    I use the included pumpsack every time I fill up my downmat. It's MUCH faster than trying to inflate a mat by blowing into it.

    Good thing I am far away from any REI store. My gear closet is getting full as it is.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Thanks for the heads up, Mustardman!
    Wow! That would be a really good deal on these Exped DownMats.

    Haven't tried the Exped DownMats. But, I understand that you're not supposed to air them up full when using in the hammock.

    Is the Exped 7 Deluxe just as efficient as the Exped 9 Deluxe?
    I see that they are both the same size, just that the Exped 9 Deluxe is a little thicker.
    Any recommendations or thoughts on the difference?

    Thanks!
