We love the new Exped mattresses despite the one with the leaky valve that failed on Mt. Whitney last summer.
One of our few (minor) complaints, they’ve answered:
Expedâ€™s down-filled mattresses are ingenious, but they took so long to inflate that you always end up just calling it good enough when youâ€™re halfway done.
Now Exped is making a pillow filled with open cell foam that makes blowing up your sleeping pad a lot easier. From this angle the pillow looks like it would be as comfy as sleeping on a piece of firewood, but youâ€™ll have to trust me that itâ€™s not too bad.
