A good night's sleep is part of preventing sea sickness, and for kayak trips you can't get a better sleeping pad than the Exped Down Mat 7 Ultralight Medium Length with schnozzel pumpbag. Most air mattresses are filled with foam which is pretty good at insulating you from the cold ground (and the lack of insulation between you and the ground is what really makes you stiff in the morning), but imagine having a couple inches of down between you and the ground! Whereas a down sleeping bag gives you almost no insulation from below because the down compresses under your body weight, the down in an Exped mat is suspended in the air chamber tubes so it doesn't get compressed. These downmats make every sleeping bag feel about 5 - 10 degrees warmer than when sleeping on foam filled air mats. And the Exped pad isn't slippery, so you won't wake up in the middle of the night with your air mat on the other side of the tent and you on the cold, hard ground.

In addition to giving you the best night's sleep you've ever had while camping, the Exped Down Mat 7' Ultralight will save a bunch of space in your kayak. It packs down to about half the size of a foam filled air mattress.

Exped makes sleeping pads in a variety of thicknesses etc., but having tested them all we recommend the Down Mat 7 Ultralight Medium Size with schnozzel pumpbag as the best of the best for sea kayakers.
