Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XLite Ultralight Backpacking Air Mattress, Standard Valve
The Therm-A-Rest NeoAir XLite Ultralight Inflatable Air Mattress for three-season backpacking, mountaineering, and camping is the ultimate minimalist’s expedition sleeping pad. Offering maximum warmth for the weight, it's designed specifically for adding a padded layer of warmth and insulation between sleeping bag and ground in alpine conditions. Baffled internal structure provides support and comfort in a 2.5-inch inflated mattress, for a restful night in the backcountry. The Therm-A-Rest NeoAir XLite sleeping pad is perfect for lightweight expeditions thanks to its innovative tapered design and materials, which eliminate bulk, making it possible to pack the ground pad to the size of a one-liter water bottle. Available in two styles: Equipped with the Standard Valve, or equipped with the WingLock Valve which is able to inflate a pad three times faster than a standard valve thanks to a larger barrel and optional one-way inflation.
Our founders' mission was simple: create a better way to sleep outside; because when you rest better, you play better. Their ingenuity and vision back in 1972 led to the creation of the first self-inflating sleeping pad.
Today, we’re still working towards the same mission to craft the best sleeping pads and bags on the market. We’re not just giving explorers a better way to camp, we’re giving them better adventures tomorrow.

I like the extra width, but it's a little long. I wish they had a medium wide.
The valve is perfect. Easy to use and feels secure.
I was able to dial in the perfect level of pressure and I can sleep on my back or my side in comfort.
It packs down pretty small, but not as small at the Exped Synmat HL MW, which is the perfect size for me, but I don't like the valve and it's not as comfortable.
The only real complaint I have for the XLite is the sound. If you move around a lot when you are trying to go to sleep, you will keep everyone awake. I read some reviews saying it was loud, but I gave it a try anyhow and OMG, it really sounds like you are rolling around on a bag of fresh crisp potato chips!
The only thing I found iffy would be some minor things and it's just me. My sleeping bag and the pad would be pretty slippery together. I do not like to zip my sleeping bags because I tend to get hot all the time...I am at that age. lol. The bag would slip around a bit on the surface of the pad.
I am not really a thin person and I tend to move around a bit in my sleep sometimes. So the width was a smidge small for me. I would recommend this pad for anyone camping..worth it. I am going to find a pad that is a double and will fit in my two person tent. Hopefully from the same company.
I got this pad for my little lady for her birthday. I had no real interest in it, but she really REALLY wanted it. The first night we brought it backpacking, she was out fast and slept through the whole night without any issues at all. (Woods, hiking, tenting, all that jazz. None of that sleeping next to your car BS that people call camping.) Now that may not sound like much, but if you've ever gone with the common sleeping systems (air pads, foam pads, or a combination of more than one) actually sleeping through the whole night without waking up dozens of times to adjust yourself is a big deal. The two-mattress method I use mitigated this well for me. The Xlite my girlfriend had eliminated it.
I didn't habeeb it at first, so we traded off. As far as sleeping pads are concerned, it was awesome. It was the most comfortable sleeping system I had used that wasn't something ridiculous like a blowup mattress you'd have in your house for guests.
Mind you that all of this was in the spring. We haven't tried it in winter conditions where insulation becomes the most important factor. For you ultralight bubbahs, this might not be a bad addition to your kit. It compresses much more nicely than other pads like the ProLite.
- It's noisy and not just a little bit. It most literally sounds like you're sleeping on inflated plastic grocery bags. The crunch sound is identical. While amusing at first, it can get annoying fast if you're someone that moves around a lot at night.
- It's not self-inflating. Somewhat arbitrary, but it's a feature I like in the ProLite.
- The pad itself is also extremely thin and prone to punctures. Common sense should apply to the latter though. I can't think of many backpackers who would throw an air pad on the bare ground without some kind of layer between the two. Put something under it first. Either on a tent floor, in a bivy, or on a foam pad. Don't be stupid with it.
If comfort is more important to you than money, this is a worthwhile purchase. It's not cheap, but it delivers what it promises.
It is a narrow pad, but even with my mix of side and stomach positions I find it comfortably adequate. I sleep directly on it with my Nanatuk quilt either cinched or open and it seems to be part of the reason I am comfortable to temps in the mid to high teens. It’s clearly a bit warmer than the foam pads I used to use and when I bought a second one for my wife, I had no pull to get thermal.
I am careful of my light equipment (12 lbs. base weight) but the mattress has had no problems with small rocks and twigs under my tarp tent floor.
Some reviewers talk about the noise of the fabric and its inner construction. I am a sound sleeper but awake easily to animal and wind noises. I haven’t found the noise an issue. Furthermore, my wife is a lite sleeper and she had no complaints. I do use a single thickness foam piece on top of the mattress to isolate my ear from the fabric. My wife doesn’t even require that.
It is easy to roll tightly and stuff into my pack, and not particularly burdensome to inflate. The deflation process is a bit slow due to a narrow tube, but no worse than many mattresses.

I have had previous difficulty with roll mats as I find that they do not give me enough padding for my hips and I would feel very bruised after one night on them.
I was very impressed with this sleeping pad. I takes about 20 full breaths to blow up completely but I am 6’3” so it may take longer for others. There has been some criticism about the material being very noisey but I had no such issue. Very comfortable to sleep on, supported my 110kg of weight nicely and although it has a high price tag, worth the money
light & compact.
if you are sharing a tent, beware it does crunch when you move about.
