New for 2019 using brand new Stratacore foam to give maximum warmth and comfort whilst maintaining a small pack size.
The Prolite range of Thermarest mats have always lead the way in lightweight warmth and comfort for a small pack size and weight, the new Apex introduces a brand new foam technology that allows Thermarest to increase warmth and comfort without increasing weight.
To demonstrate this the Apex in regular has an R value of 4 with thickness of 5cm weighing in at 630g contrast this with the Prolite plus which has an R value of 3.4 with thickness of 3.8cm and weight of 670g, so with the Apex you get more warmth and thickness for 40g LESS weight and the pack size is SMALLER - what wizardry are they employing?
The clever mat boffins at Thermarest looked at traditional ways to reduce foam weight which normally entails cutting holes through the foam, this leads to cold channels, many thinks later they worked out a way to cut channels from the foam horizontally instead of vertically, like little bridges of foam between the foam, this cuts weight and pack size but increases warmth.
Having laid out on this mat on a cold concrete floor it feels soooo comfy and toasty - me wants one!
