V Ultralite SL Artist's Edition Sleeping Mat by Klymit
When Klymit asked Kelly Halpin, an artist and all-mountain athlete from Jackson Hole, Wyoming to collaborate on artwork for the V Ultralite SL, she was immediately inspired to illustrate one of her favorite places on earth: the towering, 13,775’ Grand Teton. Kelly’s vivid, colorful art is surreal, imaginative, and motivates us to get outside.
Salt Lake City illustrator Mike Tea is an avid backpacker, climber, fly fisherman, and a retired wildland firefighter who has always been drawn to the serene beauty of Utah’s unique desert playgrounds. When we asked Mike to create the first-ever illustrated sleeping pad, he presented us with an inspiring tribute to the Zion Narrows. When you see Mike’s art on the V Ultralite SL, it’ll make you want to follow the Virgin River and stare up at the thousand-foot walls of the gorge.
Slightly slimmer than the original Static V™; the most capable pad for the lightest adventures. When we set out to make an ultralite pad, we knew that sacrificing comfort is never an option. That’s why the V Ultralite SL™ retains ample width even as it tapers, and like all Static V™ pads it features lofted air pockets, and is supported by dynamic side rails that keep you comfortably on your pad all night long. It’s the lightest Static V™ we’ve ever made.
Body Mapping Technology: the patented V-shaped design delivers support and comfort no matter how you sleep – on your side, stomach or back.
Side Rails: Integrated into the patterning and construction, they provide a secure, comfortable sleep by centering you on the pad and inhibiting air movement while tossing and turning.
Deep Weld Patterning: Unlike traditional pads that flatten the bag’s fill, Deep Welds create expansion zones that allow your bag to fully loft beneath you for improved thermal comfort.
Twist-Pull Valve: Secure and simple, it allows inflation in as few as 7 breaths and opens wide for rapid, complete deflation.
