Product Highlights

With an ultra-lightweight design, the Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XLite inflatable sleeping pad is built for ounce-counting backpackers. The mattress utilizes an integrated truss system and a heat-reflecting interior to achieve a 3.2 R-value.

Unlike the limited number of vertical baffles employed by most traditional inflatable pads, the NeoAir XLite utilizes horizontal air baffles. While minimizing convective cooling, Therm-a-Rest's Triangular Core Matrix technology and the increased number of baffles help to increase stability and avoid the "inflatable raft" feeling caused by overinflated vertical baffles. In addition, a patent-pending internal reflective barrier actually directs heat back to your body and cold air back to the ground!

The inflatable construction provides a full 2.5" thick support base. Ultra-lightweight, high-tenacity fabric offers durability and maintains an incredibly light packed weight. When deflated the NeoAir XLite packs down as small as a 1-Liter water bottle.

The Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XLite is available in Small (20" x 47"), Regular (20" x 72") and Large (25" x 77") size options. Adding additional value, a stuff sack and field repair kit are included.

  • Nathan G. Pylesville MD

    Likes: Perfect little seat. Great weight and packable size but large enough to add some on trail comfort during breaks or at camp. It seems to be sturdy and the material holds up to some real abuse.

    Dislikes: Nothing.

  • Sergio L. Jericho NY

    Likes: Amazing, so comfortable, i am a big guy and i have to say that i love this thing. I can over look the noise it makes. I don't really notice it actually. Not a big deal at all.

    Dislikes: Slight noise but not like the reviews say in my opinion.

  • . Stamford CT

    Likes: Love how compact and light this pad is. Was concerned about being noisy but it is not noisy at all.

    Dislikes: Expensive

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: zero weight, warm (-15C) and comfy

    Dislikes: expensive

  • . jefferson city MO

    Likes: I love this product, I am 56 years old, female, 5'8" and weigh 188LBS. This sleeping pad is comfortable, keeps me off the ground, is easy to blow up (I'm also smoker 40 years) it is light, compact, fits in my back pack very nicely.
    I recommend this product to anyone that must have a good night sleep. At home I sleep on a foam mattress and this product is almost as comfortable.

    Dislikes: I did not have any dislikes, great product worth the price.

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: Very light and extremely compact.

    Dislikes: High price.

  • . Concord MA

    Likes: - Extremely lightweight
    - Packs very, very small
    - Easy to inflate and deflate
    - Amazingly thick and comfortable for something that packs so small and lightweight

    Dislikes: - Material makes a crinkly noise when you move around on the pad; this may annoy some people, and takes a bit of getting used to, but in the end didn't bother me that much.


    Likes: This pad deserves 5 star. Very light weight and warm. I have been using Exped Downmat UL7. This pad is about 8 oz lighter. It is good for 3 season use. Now, my Downmat will probably only be used in winter.

    Dislikes: It is slightly noisy but not a big deal as I use ear plug. The material is a little thin but it is understandable, because we want light weight.

  • . Pleasanton CA

    Likes: Light and easy

    Dislikes: Making noise when you turn.

  • . Ladson SC

    Likes: My wife and I both have the neoair lite. We just returned from a 5 day backpack on the Foothills Trail in SC. The temp dipped to below freezing and we never felt the cold damp ground. Light weight and rolls up small.

    Dislikes: Our tent site wasn't level and the pad slid down. The sleeping bags didn't slide off the pad.

  • . Scottsdale AZ

    Likes: This sleeping pad weighs less than my 3/4 pad and gives way more support!
    Pack size is roughly a nalgene bottle. I tried a Klymit pad but couldn't get over the air gaps in the pad, I'm a bit of a cold sleeper and this pad nails it.
    Will be using this on my LT excursion.

    Dislikes: Nothing at the moment

  • . Woodbine MD

    Likes: Great lightweight durable mattress. Thing nearly disappears in my pack and its extremely comfortable to boot!

    Dislikes: The only thing I could really complain about is how long it takes to inflate, but even thats not too bad.

  • . tobyhanna PA

    Likes: The Neo-air Xlite is great for hiking. I am going to be taking it on my thru-hike next year.

    Dislikes: The first few times I used it it made a crinkling noise through the night but then went away after a few nights.

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: Light weight, quality product!

    Dislikes: Product is a little noise, due to materials used.

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: unbelievable small packing size....quick to blow up, and super lightweight.

    Dislikes: I haven't had to use it on a really cold night yet, but I am sure the insulation factor will come into play on real cold trips.

  • Danny K. Edgewood WA

    Likes: Rolls up small and compact, my regular size with stuff sack weighs in at 13.3oz. I use on snow with half a styrofoam mat underneath the torso portion of the pad, would probably be fine in a tent on snow/ice by itself.

    Dislikes: I wouldn't trust it on sharp rocky ground, but for its weight perfect for smooth surfaces.

  • Michael K. Springville UT

    Likes: I really like this sleeping pad. It's very light weight and it doesn't seem as loud as some people think when you have to move on it. There is a mylar/foil layer in the middle that can crinkle when you move around on it, but it hasn't been a big deal to me. In terms of durability, it's probably going to be more prone to punctures than the closed cell pads, but I haven't had any problems. As long as you're not sleeping on bare rocky ground, I don't think you'd have any problems. Most of us would have the tent floor or a piece of material between the pad and ground anyway, so I expect this product to last a long time. Also, it hasn't had any loss of air after it's inflated.

    Dislikes: The only problem I had with this pad is that that the mylar on the foil layer in the middle started to flake off after a few nights. It seemed like the adhesive that held it on was affected by the humidity of my breath when inflating it. So I returned my first one and got a new one which hasn't had that problem. I'm a little worried the mylar coating will come off eventually, but so far so good. I first purchased this right after it became available, so maybe there were a few issues that Thermarest was working out.

  • . Orlando FL

    Likes: Ultralight (could've shaved a few more ounces if I had gone with the small, but this pad is light enough that I can spoil myself with extra surface area without much extra weight), reflective insulation, perfect size for tent or hammock, range of softness to firmness

    Dislikes: Nothing

  • . Orlando FL

    Likes: Ultralight, reflective insulation, large size, range of softness to firmness

    Dislikes: Nothing... Durability may/may not be an issue. Time will tell.

  • Robert B. Dalton GA

    Likes: Good thickness when inflated (I'm about 200 lbs. and it kept me off the ground). The thermal shield works well. It is very compact for the pack when deflated.

    Dislikes: It doesn't take to much effort to inflate it, but at the end of a days trek, I didn't enjoy blowing it up.

  • Justin C. Lame Deer MT

    Likes: I could not believe the weight of this product. It is so light! And when they say you can pack it down the size of a 1 L water bottle, it is true! Before purchasing this product, I had in mind a somewhat firm, foam feeling pad. This thing is amazing! You can dial in exactly the amount of firmness you desire. I am amazed at how firm this pad can get. Plus, when you lay on the pad, you can instantly feel the heat being reflected back to your body. Excellent, excellent product. Will be buying Therm-a-Rest for the rest of the family soon!

    Dislikes: As of right now, there is nothing I dislike about this product.

  • Carmen M. Madbury NH

    Likes: comfort, light weight, easy inflation

    Dislikes: could be wider and less noisy material
