neoair vs exped
I was going to explain how I now have (or will have soon) 2 expel mats and 2 neo airs and what I may or may not do with all of them, but it got too complicated. Short story, I haven't cut down ...

Airmat
That's right, the Airmat has no insulation. After searching I wonder if they are not sold domestically. The one I got on ebay is coming from an Asian country, not sure which one.

exped airmat UL 5 M
Anyone know if these can be cut down? The 72" one is only 12 oz making for a possible 6 oz 36" pad. Guess I should post that question in the MYOG section.

synmat- sounds good. Still looking for neoair as well
I'm going to try the synmat, but I'm still looking for a neoair to see if I can get the weight even lower than 8 oz.

WTB: Neoair original to cut down to 36 inches: damaged, stained OK
Looking for a rectangular neoair to cut down to fit my T-rest Compack chair. The cheaper the better, so stains and leaks (except in valve) OK.

Coughlan's LED Clip-on Headlight
The Coughlan’s LED Clip-on Headlight is light weight, inexpensive and bright enough for around camp chores. The red filter is a nice feature to save night vision. I gave it a 3 of 5 because it was fru...

I love the way the Terrocs conform to my feet without needing to be tied too tightly. So - our feet are different or your Terrocs came laced differently than mine. Mine came with a heel locking lacing...

Well I thought the LT5 was perfect until Ryan suggested it would be even better if it was lighter. But of course! And it's stylish too - at least we Tilley wearers think so. And Ryan, just slip on yo...
