The Therm-A-Rest NeoAir XLite Sleeping Pad is the lightest and most packable air mattress from the NeoAir family, and probably the best choice for backpackers who are crazy picky when it comes to weight and space. Therm-A-Rest designed the NeoAir to be 15% lighter than the original NeoAir mattress, packable down to about the size of a water bottle, and super warm with an improved reflective layer that recycles your own body heat and creates dual air pockets that help conserve warmth. Your new XLite will include a stuff sack and repair kit, and it is totally made in the USA.

ultra light comfortThis pad is extreamely comfortable. I am a large person at 6'3" 220lbs. I have had a number of pads none of which have been as comfortable as this one. I was sleeping with my pack under my legs to help with lower back pain while backpacking. This pad is the only pad i have ever been able to sleep soundly throuout the night without something under my legs. The reflective material inside does a great job of retaining heat although you will still need something between you and it when it drops below 35 degrees. I cannot speak for its durabiliy as i have not owned it for longer than a year. However, I could not be more pleased as of right now.

By far BEST Term-A-Rest out there!When I found it at the store, I was super skeptical. It is TINY, the size of a Nalgne bottle, and super light weight. But the hunk of a sales man recommended it, so I figured, what the hell, at least I'll impress him by buying it. Well, not only was he pretty, but he was right!,,This thing is the bees-knees. Over 2 inches of delicious airy padding, I never got cold with just my summer bag, and it's that cool flashy yellow. Was perfect for summer in the Rockies. The only negative is it makes crinkly sounds if you roll around in your sleep. So, if you like to fight ninjas in your dreams, this might not be your pad, otherwise, GET IT!

Lightest, Most Comfortable Bed RollI have used NeoAir bed rolls for years; through the Grand Canyon and all up and down the East Coast. My most recent, older-style NeoAir had accumulated three patches (that I performed on the fly in the wilderness) since 2010 and continued to be just as comfortable as it was the day I bought it. It finally met it's match with our new Bulldog puppy that ate the air valve off . . . tried the new XLite version and found it just as comfortable - but lighter than my original two NeoAirs had been. This is a comfortable bed and perfect for going as close to "ultra-light" as you can get and still have some creature comforts.

There is nothing better! Light, small, warm and comfy!I have been using this mattress for over a year and I love it! It is rare to have a mattress that is comfy, light, small pack size and have good thermal insulation from the ground. This mattress excels in all those fields! If you plan to do a lot of snow camping, I would recommend the slightly heavier XTherm. The only thing to keep in mind is that it can be noisy, as there is a foil in the middle which gives it it's great thermal properties but the downside is, it's crinkly. I am happy to put up with this, as the other befits far outweigh this minor issue. It's a superb mattress and I highly recommend it.

Finally broke down and spent the money, well worth it.After 37 years camping with foam or low-end inflatables, if anything at all under the sleeping bag, I'll never go back now that I've tried a decent pad. This thing is ridiculously small and light, to the point where it seemed fragile, but it supported my 220 lb. frame with no difficulties and provided an actual cushion and layer of insulation from the ground, which was pretty cold. Easy to pack, easy to use and well worth the investment if you've always said you don't need one but secretly want one like I did. My one beef is that it doesn't self-inflate. Don't know if it's just mine or what, because I thought it was supposed to, but I left it sit for hours and it was still flat as a sheet.

Super comfy once you find the right inflation levelI've been using a thermarest ProLight for quite and while and I wanted to switch to something a little less bulky and a bit more comfortable for an extended trip into red rock Nevada. In terms of size, you can't beat this - it packs smaller than a nalgene and only takes a minute or two to inflate. That said, at first I found the NeoAir XLite to be almost too firm (maybe I blew it up too much), but after 2 nights its inflation level seemed to hit the sweet spot and I had some of the best nights of sleep under the stars that I've ever had. Definitely a great 3 season option.

Light, very comfortable and retains heat when you lay on it.I bought this right before I went on a 5 day hiking expedition to Sweden that I won from Moosejaw. I love this thing! Its light and packs down very nicely, the smallest I could find. You can't feel anything underneath you when you lay on it so making sure the ground is perfectly flat doesn't really matter anymore. I brought this out of my tent for people to sit on while we made dinner and talked and I got 2 compliments on how nice of a pad it was! I will never go backpacking without it. Also, I've was told to not bother buying the little gizmo that blows the pad up. I've never used it but I heard it was a waste of money and weight/space in your pack. It only takes a minute to blow it up using your mouth.

The Lightest Most Packable Sleeping PadThis pad is really as minimalist as can be and yet it performs extremely well in all 4 seasons. I am 170lb and 6'1" and I got a regular size. I can fit on the pad, but I kind of wish I would have gone with the large for the extra length and width at only a 4 oz. penalty. The only complaints I have are the noise when rolling around and the width of the regular size. Sometimes you will slide off unless you are a very quick and sound sleeper like I am not. Overall an awesome pad and super light. It packs down into a super small stuff sack and will fit in your backpack.
What year was this pad manufactured. I heard that their was a fabric change in 2015.

So, what are the differences in later model years--past 2012?Â Thanks!
Asked by: Nanabananakins
Thanks for reaching out to us. The Therm-A-Rest NeoAir XLite Sleeping Pad hasn't changed a great deal over the years. It's still ultra-light, ultra-packable, with a patent-pending reflective layer that adds warmth without the bulk. The biggest difference in the post 2012 versions is the new, softer fabrics that bring comfort and boost durability without adding any weight.
