A great balance of comfort and performance, the Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Trekker Sleep System combines the various components that you would need for a night of sleeping outdoors in a very packable fashion. You've got, first and foremost, the NeoAir Trekker Sleeping Pad, a Ventra Down Comforter, and a Fitted Sheet that ties all of them together into a custom fit package. The NeoAir Trekker sleeping pad is very lightweight and you could see as we got it out of the pack that it is very compact. It is a nice comfortable base and the horizontal baffles give you a nice stable sleeping base. It is inflatable so you will need to blow it up but the design is such that there is not too much work involved there. You can easily fine tune the adjustment of the firmness of that pad once you have blown it up. The first element that makes this a sleep system is the Fitted Sheet. You can see underneath the pad that the Fitted Sheet fits right along the outer edge or the pad and tucks underneath. you have got a strap here in between that attaches and at the very top of the sleeping pad it stretches over the edges and lets that nozzle pass straight through so if you need to make fine adjustments you can do so. you have great next to skin comfort on that pad and this is machine washable which extends its use for many seasons. The next step in assembling the system is to attach the Ventra Down Comforter to the sleeping pad and the Fitted Sheet. The Fitted Sheet makes that extrememly easy because it has integrated snaps that connect to the snap connection points on the Ventra Down Comforter. Here at the foot of the pad I am making sure that the comforter is wrapped around the bottom and the the baffling of the Ventra Down Comforter is tucked on the front side, or top side, of the sleeping pad. this will make it that much warmer and comfortable when you are in the sleep system. One last snap here and the sleep system is in place. The Ventra Down Comforter is a nice lightweight 650 fill blanket that can be used independently but obviously it snaps in place here to give you a really nice comfortable nights sleep. It has got a 40 degree temperature rating on it and the pad itself has a 2.0 R value so you are looking at warm weather usage unless you couple it with another blanket, another bag, and or another pad underneath.
