Klymit Supports the 5,000 Mile Project

We got this update from our friends Dave and Kat with the 5000 Mile Project and Klymit is incredibly proud to be a part of their journey. These two incredible athletes are putting some serious miles under their belts–running, unsupported, the length of South America in a year for its wilderness and wildlife. Here is what Dave has to say about their trip (and their sturdy Inertia XL pads) so far:

Dave and Kat here from the 5000 Mile Project – running the length of South America in a year – the two Inertia XL mats are incredible- we have been sleeping in some horrendous conditions and they have kept us warm and comfortable over snow and ice as well as a lot of not so bad weather too in Patagonia.

Could you do me a favour and send a couple of repair kits for the mats please? Amazingly, I have only had to use one in the first 50 nights of sleeping on them, but we are heading over to Argentina, then Bolivia and Brazil and the vegetation is less forgiving.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page for Dave and Kat’s video showing the mats in use on snow and be sure to check out the 5000 Mile blog here. We hope everyone will join us and cheer Dave and Kat on in their extraordinary journey! If you are interested in donating to their “ambitious and impactful” project and becoming a sponsor, you can find all the information you need here.


Loft Pockets & Body Mapping 101

Ever wonder what we mean when we talk about Loft Pockets & Body Mapping? Well, we are here to help clarify these cozy-sounding terms for you.

Body Mapping:  Klymit sleeping pads are revolutionary in that they mirror the human anatomy.  By doing so, they provide a sleeping surface that is designed specifically to offer you more comfort and a better night’s sleep whether you sleep on your back, your side, or your stomach.  We have created two luxurious body maps:

  • Pressure Point Body Map:  This acclaimed minimalist body mapping technique has been winning over backpackers since its introduction in 2010.  The Klymit Inertia camping pads comfortably support all the places your body touches a sleeping surface.  The remaining areas are removed to minimize weight, allow for breathability, and enhance warmth.
  • Anatomical Body Map:  The V shaped designed pads are ultra comfortable camping pads designed to mimic the muscular structure of your back.  By matching the contours of the human body, the Inertia XL and Static V naturally accommodate all body types and offer enhanced comfort over standard camping pads.  This neutral body map is ultra comfortable by itself as found in the Static V.  When combined with the comfortable loft pockets, side rails, and built in pillow on the Inertia XL, and the ability to customize the pressure, the result is the most comfortable camping pad on the market.

Loft Pockets:  This patent pending technology is a Klymit exclusive that makes our camping pads the most versatile available.  Whether the pad is under your sleeping bag or inside of it, the pad allow your sleeping bag to stay puffy underneath you, thus capturing the warmth from your whole sleeping bag and not just the top.  This technology allows the lightest, most compact, and most comfortable camping pads on the market to also be the warmest camping pads in cold weather, and the only breathable pads on the market in the summer.  Simply put, you can always sleep in any condition that the sleeping bag is rated to on any of our camping pads with loft pocket technology.


What’s New, Cory?

Here’s a great video from our friends at Recreation Outlet featuring Cory Tholl, our President.

Looking good, Cory! Tell us what you think, of the pad, not Cory. Well, that is unless you are a big movie producer and you’re looking to sign Cory on for the next big blockbuster.


Thanks, outdoor industry for a great week!

An amazing week just ended in Salt Lake City at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market. The Klymit booth was crowded from opening bell to closing bell, and we had a ton of great meetings with old friends, good customers, new dealers, and folks from all over the industry.

We premiered two exciting new products at ORSM : The Inertia X-Wave 3/4 pad is the latest edition to the Inertia family, ensuring that we have a pad that will work for everyone.

In addition, we showed off our Air Beam Backpack Frame Sheet that we are introducing in partnership with multiple backpack manufacturers. This ultra-lightweight adjustable air frame will change the backpacking industry!

We’ll share the details on these great new product additions in the coming weeks.

In the meanwhile, thanks to everyone who visited our booth at the Salt Palace and we look forward to sharing the great new products with you. Enjoy these images from the show:

Spring 2012 Backpacking Gear Guide Includes Static V

Open Air Life recently released its Spring 2012 Backpacking Gear Guide and it included our Static V camping pad! Here is a bit of what they had to say:

 “The latest in Klymit’s camping pads, the Static V is a full-length pad that inflates in only 10 breaths. The Static V’s engineered “V” chambers limit air movement and heat loss, as well as stabilize the pad and distribute weight for better support  and comfort.”
