Klymit's Armored V Sleeping Mat is practically bomb proof, if a puncture is the last thing you want the 300 000 armoured scales will give you peace of mind.
Generous comfort is combined with unmatched durability for the most rugged expeditions. 300,000 precisely positioned, armored SuperFabric™ scales cover the entire underside of the Armored V™, creating a tough barrier that resists puncture, slashing, moisture, and abrasion. The scales are strong enough to perform in the most demanding outdoor conditions, yet are flexible enough to fold and roll for compact storage.
Klymit's Armored V Sleeping Mat is an absolute beast of a sleeping mat designed to survive the toughest of terrain. On the underside have 300 000 armored scales producing an astonishing 100 denier fabric that feels bullet proof. If you often use your mat straight on the ground and don't want to worry about punctures then this is the mat for you.
The toughness of the bottom is in contrast to the comfort on the sleeping side. Klymit's patented body mapped V shaped design provides plenty of support including for side sleepers. The raised side baffles means you would have to try really hard to roll of the mat.

From 2020, there is a new industry standard for measuring the R-value (level of insulation) of sleeping mats – ASTM F3340-18. This new standard is the sleeping mat equivalent to the EN rating for sleeping bags.
You can now directly compare the R-value of mats rated using the ASTM F3340-18 with confidence that is a fair and accurate comparison between mats. In simple terms, the higher the R-value, the warmer the mat.
In general terms, an R-value below 2.0 is for summer use, 2.0 to 4.0 is for cooler 3 season use and 4.0+ is for winter temperatures. This will be also be dependent on your sleeping bag, how cold you sleep etc. Please contact our customer service team if you need advice on choosing the right mat for your activity.
