Customer Reviews

Very lightweight, durable, and comfortable.
Don Curtis
What was truly heavenly was the comfort of a night's sleep with only a ground pad, the NeoAir and a ultralight bag at 7,000ft.

I purchased this prior to a 14 day backpacking trip in New Mexico and slept on it for about a week prior to departure to make sure it was going to work out and that I would be comfortable.

The crackling noise subsided after about 3 days and I found I liked the full 2" thickness. A friend had ordered a 3/4 length but because of the thickness it was uncomfortable to have his feet and calves hanging off. Go ahead and get the full length one if you have any questions... the weight on the full length is still astonishing low.

I use a down quilt instead of a sleeping bag so the thermarest was all there was between me and the ground at 10,000 feet. I actually got so warm it was hard to sleep the first 3-4 nights and instead of making the connection with the pad I thought I was getting sick. I finally swapped with another person for one night (I had loaned him my self-inflating 3/4 length pad I used a previous year) and when I spent that night chilled it confirmed the pad was what was keeping me warm and I was glad to get the thermarest back!

The only thing that concerns me is that the silver coating that is on the interior of the inflatable tubes appears to be flaking off inside. I have not contacted Thermarest at this point but if it continues I will do so. I would never use this pad outdoors while camping as a chair regardless of the adapter, it's too important and too expensive for me to take the risk of puncturing during a trek.

All in all this is a fantastic, light weight, WARM sleeping pad that folds up flat about the size of two sandwiches and it has now replaced the assortments of pads I kept on hand for different camping seasons and situations.

UPDATE: 3/2012
I still like the mattress however it has started to separate inside.

Do yourself a favor and buy this sleeping pad. It is amazing. The top three reasons I love it: Comfort, weight, pack size. I would also like to mention that I am a side-sleeper and this pad works very, very well for me. You can adjust the level of firmness while lying on the pad. It is also very well insulated. I prefer to sleep with the pad inside of my bag. This way I don't roll off of it and it stays very warm. Other reviewers have mentioned how crinkly it can sound from the insulation. It's honestly not bad at all and I wouldn't use that as a deterrent from purchasing it. It is an excellent sleeping pad. I can't recommend it enough!

I used my large NeoAir Xlite on a 2-week backpacking trip on the southern end of the AT. I loved the increased comfort over my old Thermorest and that it gave extra insulation on the nights when the temperature dropped below freezing. The pad offered more coverage, lower weight, and a decreased pack volume than my old pad. However, some shortcomings really detracted from the enjoyment.

The pad is obviously fragile so I tried very hard to protect it during transport, inflation, use, and deflation. Despite the extra precautions, it developed a leak. With difficulty, I found and fixed it, but believe I now have another one.

The pad is as noisy as the reviews indicate. After 2 solid weeks of use, it may have been getting a bit quieter, but not much.

A large pad has a HUGE volume and it takes a long time to inflate especially when you are trying to keep the pad from impaling itself on a nearby bush. After the first leak incident, I developed the habit of inflating it only while the pad was inside the tent or on the ground cloth on the shelter floor.

The pad offers some real advantages and the shortcomings (in moderation) I encountered should not be unexpected - hence the 3 star rating. However, I will be looking at other options before my next long hike.

A quality product for sure, but a bit narrow for me at 20 inches considering how high it is (2-1/2 inches)...felt like I was sleeping on a ledge all night (I'm not particularly wide at 6 ft, 155 pounds). I returned it and purchased the LARGE size (25 x 77 inches), which is much better, if not downright luxurious! Thermarest, perhaps unknowingly, continues to perpetuate the myth that 20 inches is a suitable width for a thick mattress. If you're on a 5/8" thick pad, 20 inches is fine, but to me it's a cliffhanging experience for the thicker products.

Pro:
* very comfortable
* good insulation / warm
* light & compact

Con:
* noisy...
* a little slow to inflate/deflate (not self-inflatable)
* relatively fragile if not handled with care (always inside a tent!)

+ update: I just camped for one month on this pad... I confirm all the "pro": it is very comfortable/light/warm... About the "con": the noise is not a real problem... I hated inflating and deflating it but it is normal as this is an inflatable pad!... According to reviews I read, it is less fragile than other similar products... But much more expensive. (If it was cheaper I would give it a 5/5.)

Been searching for the perfect pad forever. I actually ignored buying this pad since the day it came out because of the noise it produces when you sleep on it. Which I am really beating myself up over because the sound doesn't bother me at all.

I am 6 feet 170 pounds and I got the large, due to the lightweight and tapered design of the Xlite. The ONLY exception on weight I make regarding my backpacking setup is the 4 ounces that go into this larger pad, and it is sooooooooo worth it. My arms don't fall off the side and the extra 5 inch width really makes all the difference in the world for me.
If you're over 5'11" or have broad shoulders, I would say go for the large.

The thing I like most about the pad is the R rating to weight ratio and the fabric. It's unbelievable how warm this pad is for being the lightest (usable) on the market.
The fabric has a nice rubbery texture to it that grips onto my Feathered Friends bag, which is a huge difference to ALL of the thermarest, exped, big agnes and pacific outdoors pads I've had in the past. Some people knock it for its durability saying it MIGHT have problems in the future because it feels so light. Well the pads been out for a while now, and nobody is complaining about popping anywhere I've seen. I don't understand that statement, as the material feels as strong/stronger than any other I've used, especially expeds.

The only downside to this pad is the price, which is pretty significant. However, this is the best pad on the market and it doesn't even have a challenger at the moment.
