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
  • Triangular Core Matrix™ construction minimizes convective heat loss–all without the bulk
  • Low-bulk materials make the XLite mattress the most compact NeoAir mattress ever

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 5 out of 5 by from So you want to be an ultralight backpacker? This is the one. Best combination or comfort/weight/warmth. But let's go through this. If you want something for car camping, you don't need the X Lite. Get a big comfy super durable Exped mat. But you're presumably looking at the X Lite because you're carrying your pad on your back. What are your other options? A closed-cell foam pad like the RidgeRest or Z Lite. Cheap, light, bombproof. Also you have to lash them on the outside of your pack because they're obviously huge; not a big deal, they're indestructible so you can bushwhack to your heart's content, it won't hurt your pad. Also convenient to sit on at quick breaks. BUT (and this is a big one), they're not very comfortable. In general I'm not a princess, yet I can't sleep on these. If you're on a tight budget, you can try them. If you can't sleep you're only out $40. For a bit more money you can get one of the Klymit inflatable pads. They are decent and reasonably priced. The Static line is a bit heavier, not as warm or comfy compared to Thermarest. The Inertia line is light, but the "frame" design doesn't work for a lot of people. Certainly not if you're a side sleeper, and if you're a true ultralight backpacker with a quilt obviously your pad is supposed to provide insulation under you which the frame won't. Sea to Summit's top model (Ultralight) is comparable to the X Lite for weight, comfort, price. However, the R-value is inadequate for anything but summer weather. Don't underestimate the importance of this metric! The X Lite is a true 3-season pad. So that's basically what's out there. If you have the budget and you want the best overall ultralight 3-season sleeping pad, the X Lite is it. X Therm if you're camping below freezing. Now let's talk about which one you need. Obviously for the truly weight conscious the Small model is appealing, a lot of people can deal without padding under their lower legs (just prop your feet on your pack). My issue with the Small and Regular is the width - I can't sleep on a 20in pad. My elbows fall off the pad and get cold. I'm skinny too, 20in is just comically small. If you sleep on your side you may be fine. For back sleepers my advice is to take the weight (and $$) penalty on the Large for the 25in width. It's still light at 16oz. If you're a true ultralight evangelist and crafty, the "ultimate" ultralight pad is a Large XLite shortened. You can find a video on YouTube on how to do it, but basically you cut your pad to desired length and reseal it with an iron. Now you have a ~12oz (or less, depending on your chosen length), 25in wide, well-insulated pad for all 3-season adventures. To be clear: neither me, Thermarest or Moosejaw recommend you do this. You might have a $200 paperweight that doesn't hold air or fails in the field, your warranty is voided, you can't return it etc.. But these frankenstein pads are out there, I love mine. I keep my Xtherm full length for winter when every bit of insulation counts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and very light Bought as a comfort upgrade to a z-rest sol. Ordered the short version for weight savings to replace the short z-rest foam pad that has been adequate on trips where I could find nice, soft, mossy (or otherwise “cushy”) ground to camp on. Sleeping on hard, compacted, or graveled campsites is another matter. This mattress made a big difference in how I feel in the morning after camping. Going from a foam pad to a 2.5” inflatable mattress was a huge game changer in quality of sleep for me, but I regret having ordered the short version. I’m 6’1” and about 200lbs. On a foam pad, you only really know that you’ve rolled off of it in the night if you wake up cold. On the NeoAir, you rather fall off of it (usually pushing it away from the direction you rolled towards), or just spill off of it. On my back, my elbows are resting on the ground sheet rather than the pad. Sleeping on my side, my knees and butt are hanging off the edges. So while I liked the mattress, I had to return it and consider the pack weight of the large size option. But now I think the cost and weight cost are worth the comfort it provides. The crinkly noise that seems to bother others so much is really no worse that sleeping on a polycryo or tyvek ground sheet. Imagine the sound of a mylar space blanket muffled under a heavy quilt, and you will get the idea.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from why did I wait so long?! I've been hearing about this air mattress for years now. All the great reviews, etc etc. For some reason, I never really bought all the hype. Well, I bought one and used it on two trips . . . .I'm here to say all the hype is true. What a great product. Super comfortable (I'm a side sleeper), very warm (15 degree low one night). I found it quiet unlike some of the older models, super light weight. This product is AWESOME!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great night's sleep, but please make a regular length wide! I've been using this pad for nearly 3 years, first in the regular iterations which were far too narrow - your arms would fall off of the pad - and for the past year in the wide version. In my experience 25in really ought to be standard. It's as comfortable as my bed at home, isn't noisy, and I don't fall off and wake up in the night again and again like I did with the 'narrow' size. It's also been surprisingly durable. While I don't put this pad down directly on the ground ever, I don't always use anything to protect it while in the tent, which hasn't lead to disaster through PCT and Colorado trail hikes so far, knock on wood. On the other hand, it's just way too long for me at 5'9, and that length sometimes causes problems with crashing into the walls of my tent, especially on less than ideal terrain that isn't level. This is especially annoying when there's condensation all over the walls of my shelter, or its raining -- everything winds up way wetter than is necessary by morning time. I've modified my xlite with silicon on the bottom to prevent slipping, but now consider chopping 6 or 7 inches off of the pad. Does this void the warranty to 'improve' the Xlite? Warranty be darned. So my opinion based off of a huge amount of use is that the short will not be useful for all but the tiniest folks, the regular is a little better given its length but misses the mark due to its narrowness. And the wide, well, it's as good as it gets. Thermarest really needs to consider offering the wide in varying lengths though, that is not cool lumping the only truly usable width into one length. Judging by other reviews, I'm not the only human that thinks this. Great pad unfortunately disguised as a 'good' pad, yet it's still the best there is as far as I'm concerned, and still made in the USA by an awesome company. 3/5

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, even for big guys. I am 6'5" with a 52" chest and a 38" waist and I sleep like a baby on the Men's XLite Large. I am a side sleeper and sleep with a down quilt and I sleep like a baby night after night. Only gets 4 stars because the material can be a bit noisy if you move while you sleep. If you're looking for supreme comfort, this may not be what you're looking for. But if what you need is a comfortable place to lay your head after a long day on the trail, this pad is like a dream in a hammock or a tent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product but you need to make a shorter 25" wide model. I've used mine for close to 100 nights and had had no problems or leaks. Being pretty broad-shouldered, the large/25" model does the trick - my arms just fall off the 20" models. While the length of the large is definitely nice, I would buy a shorter wide model if it were offered for trips where I am more focussed on reducing weight/bulk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Optimal I have had this mattress for a couple years now. I ended up buying them for the whole family. It has been bomb proof so far. I always use a footprint or ground cloth, so no punctures for me. I've slept on it in 20 degree temps and been warm with a quilt. After 2yrs of trekking and some serious conditions it's as good as the day I bought it. We now have 4 of these and zero issues. Oh yeah its a bit noisy when you move around. But way more comfortable than a foam pad that weighs the same.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too narrow, arms fall off the pad when sleeping on my back I bought the WR (Women's Regular), which is 20" wide by 66" long. The length is perfect for me (I'm 5'4") but it's way too narrow. When I lie down on my back, my hands are going to resting on the hard cold granite of Canadian Shield. I'm going to return it and get the large, for the extra width at 25" (still too narrow for my liking) but I'll be carrying around a whole extra foot of pad in the length.

How does this pad hold up to dog nails?

Asked by: Cat123
I have a dog and a 1 year old who are both not gentle on our xlites (we have two).  I do try to keep the dog off of the pad as much as possible but my son basically jumps on them and they're still going strong.  If I were worried about this, I'd just wait until I'm about to go to bed before blowing them up.  I'd guess that any manufacturer is going to recommend keeping a dog away from the sleeping pad.   I'm actually more worried about the dog's nails tearing up my quilt than puncturing this pad!
