Hey all! Now, this is a much argued topic i can see from other forums, etc on which brand are better for comfort, and weight, but ive never read about how the two brands or models fair long term for durability. Exped have a two year warranty, so in theory should be inferior to thermarest with a life time warranty. But ive noticed expeds mats are generally less expensive compared to thermarest. Id it worth buying 'cheap' and buying twice ultimately? Do exped deliver similar quality construction and quality to thermarest? Or is it worty biting my tongue and going with a produ t that i can always return, should i have to. What are your thoughts on the two? This is a personal dilemma for me on what my next pad should be, but i think it could get a good disscussion going on this.
