Klymit's Static V Luxe Sleeping Mat is a very comfortable, wide, and durable mat giving you plenty of wriggle room with a small pack size.
Sleep Outside™ with the ultimate in packable luxury. When your biggest priority is extra room to stretch and roll, the Static V Luxe™ has got you covered. This generously wide version of our trademark V-Chamber design is large enough to accommodate the broadest shoulders. It’s the perfect option for those who toss, turn, and tend to roll off narrower sleeping pads, yet it still packs small.
Width is the stand out feature of Klymit's Static V Luxe Sleeping Mat. For larger folk or those who who tend to roll in their sleep you would struggle to escape the confines of this comfy mat. The depth of this mat makes it a good choice for side sleepers.
Utilising the Klymits trade mark V shaped body mapped baffles from the regular Static V regular the Luxe has additional raised baffles on the sides to stop you rolling off and giving you room to stretch out. Despite the large sleeping space of the mat it still packs down about the same as 1 litre bottle. The 70 denier outer fabric makes this a durable mat.
The mat incorporates an innovative new flip valve. The valve rotates allowing you to quickly flip from deflation to one way inflation. Despite the mats size I had it inflated in less than a minute. The mat comes with a stuff sack which incorporates a handy pocket containing a puncture repair kit.

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.
