Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XLite Mattress is a lightweight air mattress for three-season backpacking adventures. The XLite brings you a 2.5 inch thick mat to rest your body upon after a hard day's hike. Therm-A-Rest has added a softer fabric on the outside this year, better to touch, say if you're headed out with just a camp blanket instead of a full sleeping bag in the summers. The ThermaCapture™ technology is a high point for you tech-saavy folks, or just plain magical for the cool guys out there, as it traps radiant heat so you stay warmer throughout the night. Get in your sleeps, tomorrow is another day on the trail.

FEATURES of the Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XLite Mattress

  • New, soft-touch fabrics and baffled internal structure provide unrivaled stability and support
  • Advanced fabrics and a tapered design make this the lightest 3-season backpacking air mattresses available
  • Patent-pending, reflective ThermaCapture™ technology traps radiant heat

  • Stuff sack and repair kit included

ThermaCapture Radiant Heat Technology is a proprietary reflective coating that we apply to a range of surfaces. By reflecting radiant heat back to your body that is otherwise lost, this extremely lightweight coating turns that surface into a very efficient heat reflector, amplifying warmth without the excess weight or bulk of added, conventional insulating materials.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pad is Flappy Floppy Slidy Crinkly I have owned for two years, fairly heavy use (60 nights or so). Pad does not grip tent floor. Slides around like it is on ice. If the tent is on any sort of slope (I emphasize ANY), I will be sliding in that direction. From day one it has deflated after about 5 hours of sleeping on it. Bathtub tested for leaks without any luck. Late night pee break turns into late night hyperventilation trying to blow this thing back up. Pad is crinkly too. Crinkly with noises that is. Overall, not too thrilled by it. It does the job for now. I will try Sea to Summits new line of pads once I can cough up the dough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from outstanding pad Recently purchased this for a more comfortable, full-sized (but still lightweight) pad to replace my old lightweight pad, which mainly saved ounces by being knee-length rather than full-size. Substantially more comfortable (just used it for a weeklong trek) than the old pad, and lighter to boot. I haven't tried it for winter, so I'm unsure how the thermal insulation compares, but just being full-length should give it better performance there as well. There is a common complaint of noisiness/crinkling sounds for this pad, but my partner and I didn't find them to be a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super light and compact I bought this on a 'going light' kick and I am so please that I did. It is about a third of the weight of my old matt, is much smaller yet it is more comfortable. I am 6'5 and I have found the regular fine for camping trips over the summer. I am a side sleeper and if a matt is too firm I will always wake up with dead limbs- I have had no such problems with the xlite. I know some people have said it is noisy as you move around on it but I don't think it is particularly noisy. A bit crinkly perhaps but it is not a problem. I looked at the MKI xlite in a store and the new materials on my MKII certainly seem better. I love this mattress!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Compact and light, but I keep finding small leaks This is a compact and light mattress, yet very comfortable when working. The problem, however, is that I keep finding new leaks around the seams of the mattress and I can never seem to get a full night of sleep without having to refill it with air. This is the second Therm-a-rest NeoAir I have owned, and they both had the same problem. This happens even though I have treated my NeoAirs as good as I possibly can. The one I currently have is a replacement unit for the first NeoAir I had. I have used it on several trips in Norway and Alaska and bought the NeoAir because I needed a light weight mattress, but I suspect the material on this mattress is to weak.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Comfortable and Light. I waited for almost 9 months for this mattress to become available, and I'm glad I didn't settle for anything else. The NeoAir X-Lite has helped me with my best ever backcountry sleep. I sleep on my side, and this mattress has plenty of depth to allow my bony hips to float above the ground, something I've never found in another Thermarest product. The R-value is serious, and I noticed it as soon as I sat down on the pad- as though there was a separate heat source between my body and the ground. The most pack-able, lightweight sleeping pad I've owned, I recommend this product to anyone serious about low-bulk, lightweight comfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just plain Awesome! My girlfriend and I just received our NeoAir XLites and we are very satisfied! We ordered these in preparation for the PCT we will attempt in April 2016. Used these pads last weekend camping and they are very comfortable. Packed to the size of a nalgene and only 12oz make is ideal for weight and space conscious adventurers. I knocked a star off of durability because I have only used it once. If taken care of and used smart, i feel this pad will last a long time. I would not recommend using it out of the tent with out a cover or ground sheet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultralight This pad is the reference for UL backpacking. I have the small (torso) one, and put my pack under my legs. My wife has the women version and loves it. When backpacking as a couple, we strap them together and couple our sleeping bags for an "almost at home" setup. Note that it takes times getting used to. Fabric is a bit noisy/slidy when new. Also, larger bodies will most certainly need the wider version: as a 5'11", 180lbs side-sleeper, it took some practice to find a good sleep position. If saving weight is not a priority (e.g. car camping or low miles), look for a pad with more sleeping area and more robust fabric (rectangular pads, generally cheaper too).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Lightweight Choice I've used the original version NeoAir backpacking for several years now and decided this year to upgrade to the lighter, higher R-value model. Pros: lightest choice out there, comfortable, never had a puncture (use a Tyvek ground sheet), inflates easily with the 2 oz. air tap pump (keeps moisture out of the pad), packs small. Cons: A little noisy when you move about, but got used to it pretty quickly.
