There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Another reviewer mentioned memory foam, and I just wanted to make it clear that Therm a rest is not providing memory foam. It is nevertheless quite comfortable, and reduces pressure points. I think the outer cover is quite durable, and looks to me like it would take a good beating. Zippers are of good quality and heavy enough for the application. Someone mentioned that the micro fleece is a bit of a hair magnet. I do not have any animals to test this out, but it did not seem to have excess static cling to me. I can also say the fit of the cover was good. Certainly better than my fitted sheets on my main bed at home.
I did not have any problem with the pump whatsoever. Another reviewer mentioned some issues, but all I can figure is operator error. It seemed to inflate the mattress without issue. There is no auto cut off, so you have to pay attention to fullness. Pretty easy to do by unzipping the outer cover partially and just watching the levels or just listen for a change in pump noise pitch. Anyone with reasonable intelligence should have no issue controlling this. It's very easy to let out a little bit of air while you're laying on it for fine tuning, so I found best to over inflate initially.
As far as competition goes, an alternative to the Therm a rest is the Nemo Cosmo air. It comes in a 30 XL version, and you can then order a pillow top for the same. This does not have the memory foam either. It's essentially an apples to apples comparison. The Nemo does have a built in pump, but the Therm a rest gives you a pump. Pack sizes is within 1 inch of each other for the pad. The Nemo pillow top is 8.5x 12 packed, compared to about 10x15 for the Therm a rest. May not seem like much, but if you're traveling it makes a difference. I thought that packing the pillow top separately from the pad might make a difference in space-saving, but having done this a number of times I can say it does not save any space at all. If anything it makes it much more difficult to put back together.
The one difference in my experience it is the Nemo does not make any crackling sound. The Therm a rest, does make a bit of noise as you roll around, but it's not as though it's going to wake you up. I can also say that if you have plans to use the pad alone, the noise from the Therm a rest may drive you crazy. The Nemo has an edge here. I did not compare warranties, so something one might take a look at.
I don't know if a true piece of memory foam would be more comfortable or pack smaller. In my experience memory foam tends to compress quite a bit with heat, so in colder climates it becomes harder, whereas in warm climates it would compress quite a bit. In some ways it's probably better they don't use it.
Overall the 30 inches is a real luxury. I tried a 25 inch pad version, and despite only a 5 inch difference, the comfort level is considerably nicer in my opinion. The foam on the top combined with the fleece sheet really takes this to the next level for comfort. It's amazing a little piece of 1 inch foam can do so much, but you start approaching the same comfort level as a traditional mattress with this. If you have the room, you could certainly put a piece of 2 inch foam under the cover for even more comfort, but as is it's quite cozy and comfortable, and takes away a lot of the bounce of the air mattress underneath. If there is any negative to this, it's the crunch of the air mattress. I'm not so sure it's a deal breaker, but would be nice if it was a little quieter.
Update: I did purchase one of the Nemo Cosmo versions as I was looking for the smallest package possible. Because of the pump location in the cosmo, you cannot fold the mattress in half, you instead need to fold in thirds. What's the big deal you say? Well, if you want to roll the pillow top and the pad together, the pillow top would create quite a large package when folded into thirds. This means you need to remove the pillow top, and you now have two separate packages instead of one. When you compare the size of those two packages versus the one size with the Therm a rest, it makes a big difference in pack size. The Nemo cosmo also has no protection on the bottom, so the likelihood of puncturing the pad goes up quite a bit. The Therm a rest, has a completely enclosed pillow top, and the Bottom is 75D fabric so it offers quite a bit of extra protection. The Nemo also has two Velcro straps, compared to two built-in straps on the Therm a rest. This makes packing things the Nemo up a whole lot more awkward. Those Velcro straps seem to end up everywhere but where you need them, so having them sewn into the pillow top on the Therm a rest is a big plus.
So, I ended up sending the Cosmo back. The last thing I did was to purchase a stuff sack for the Therm a rest, which makes it fit into something like 8x12, and it can be cinched up to standard luggage with a strap, kind of like a sleeping bag. This saves extra baggage fees, assuming the airline will take it this way. There's no way I could have fitted the Cosmo in the same space.
So, the only negative is the crunch, otherwise I also found this more comfortable than the Cosmo too (less bounce). I think this comes from the fact the Therm a rest has smaller baffles. The more I use the Therm a rest, the more I appreciate how well it is engineered. I'm glad I had an opportunity to compare it to the competition, and hope others will benefit from my experience.
+ Very comfortable to sleep on, even on super hard ground.
+ Comfortable for side sleeping
+ Warm to sleep on
n Not super loud, but not super quiet either with body movement.
- Ineffective nozzle design ( or poor materials for the nozzle interface) makes the Torrent pump useless and leaves me breathless ( literally after blowing up 3 of these in camp ) and disappointed ( but hopeful that Thermarest will quickly redesign the nozzle or suggest/provide a fix ).
- This updated Neoair Dream version for 2016 does not appear to have the stuff sack that can be used for manual inflation as previously provided in earlier years and seen in several product review videos online.
More: I ordered these for my family to sleep on car camping based on other reviews that stated these would be one of the most comfortable pads for sleeping. I own and have owned several Thermarest backpacking sleep pads/inflatables over the years and have been happy with them.
The NeoAir Dream are very comfortable sleeping pads, way more so than the simple one-two inch backpacking inflatables of years gone by. My family and I got very good rest on these, even when the tent was set up on very hard ground, these pads provide super comfort, probably in part due to the 1 inch memory foam. I am planning on testing it out with 2 inches of memory foam to see if it is a better night's sleep and see how much it can be compressed when rolled up.
My biggest negative about this setup is stated above. The Torrent pump as is basically useless until the interface from the pump to the inflatable is redesigned. The interface is a small blue removable plastic nozzle that fits tightly on the pump and fits correctly over the inflatable's twisty nozzle, but it just doesn't create any kind of a seal at the bottom of the twisty nozzle to get the air in to the pad's air mattress. I have tried to use the Torrent pump several times, maybe I am doing something wrong. Probably going to have to rig up another nozzle interface with a short piece of silicone tubing or something similar to create a more airtight seal for pump inflation.
So eventually I had to give up and blow these up by lung power, which is tiring to do for more than one mattress. Also some people claim online that adding moisture to the mattress ( from breathing into it to fill it ) possibly decreases the lifespan of the mattress.
The Torrent pump does not have any adapter to remove air from the mattress, you have to do this by rolling it out manually. It would be nice to be able to suck all the air out of it with the pump like you can with air mattresses to make for the tightest possible rollup, but not a dealbreaker.
This is a luxury car-camping pad, though I backpacked with it this weekend. It's an awesome sleeping pad (I own 5 other thermarests). Mine came with a pump and with a stuff sack.
Most impressive is that it stuffs better than my smaller thermarests... don't be afraid of this thing - it's awesome if luxury is what you're looking for - Also, get the XL version - You'll be disappointed if you don't.
