So I got the Exped Synmat UL M when REI had the sale on them. I also got the pillow pump for it. I finally got to use them for the first time last Monday. They were great, I loved them both and I slept like a rock.
But then I went on another trip this weekend. I blew up the pad, went to bed, and within 10 minutes it was completely deflated. I checked all the valves, and then blew it up again. This time I listened carefully and I could hear it deflating near the bottom of the pad.
I didn't want to mess around trying to find the hole and patch it, so I just slept on my Z-lite which I had under the synmat both nights. When I got back to town I went right back to REI to exchange the pad for another one.
So after only one night it didn't hold air. I babied this pad. Has anyone else had a problem with these pads? I did notice there were quite a few at the last scratch and dent sale that claimed they no longer held air. Should I give it another go? Or return this one and start looking for a different pad altogether?
