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 materials offer durability while maintaining an incredibly light packed weight. And soft, textured non-slip surface fabrics offer next-to-skin comfort that’s also quiet when you move around on the mattress. 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.

Real Customer Reviews
- Comfortable, lite weight, but a little noisy
Likes: A bit noisy, if you or your partner are a light sleepers it could be a problem. Otherwise, it is warm, lightweight, and comfortable.
Dislikes: none at this time
Likes: I got this instead of an underquilt for staying warm in my hammock. It has been good for this purpose down to freezing so far and probably will be fine to about 20. I do have a black diamond Costco style underquilt in addition however. It reduces the hammock squeezing and is like a floating bed. And it is very nice on the ground too.
Dislikes: None yet, though i wonder about the effect of all the water vapor i breathe in to it.
Likes: One of my daily drivers.
- light weight wonder
Likes: this thing is tiny and light, yes it makes a crinkly noise, but that only bothers your sleep mate and the critters outside, never bothers me
- I love this pad!
Likes: Light, light, and oh, it's light
The R value is a perfect balance of warmth when you need it without overheating in warmer weather.
I've owned other sleep pads, but this is my favorite. It is very easy to fold and the stuff sack is relatively forgiving if it's not a perfect fold.
The valve allows for easy adjustments in firmness.
Dislikes: This pad is a little noisy. Unless you are a quiet sleeper, it should not be a problem.
It takes a lot of breath to inflate.
- Awesome Ultralight pad. I got the Large version and I am very glad I did. I own the small version of the neo air x-therm, and sizing up to the large is definitely worth the extra bit of weight.
Likes: Very light
Packs up small
Dislikes: A little Noisey is the only bad thing I can say, but really not an issue.
- Super light, packs small, and very comfortable!
Likes: I have the regular and it's extremely light and doesn't pack bulky. It's the most comfortable sleeping pad I've used.
Dislikes: It does take a little longer to setup since there is no foam, you have to blow air into it.
- Nice pad
Likes: Inflates in 15 lung full. Deflates and packs away real easy.
Dislikes: none except the cost
- Comfortable, light weight, wide
Likes: Comfortable to sleep on with the horizonal trusses. I was using a vertical until I tried this one out. I am very conscious of weight in backpacking gear and I love how light the NeoAir is. I get the XL because I like a little space to move around when I sleep.
Dislikes: I haven't found any dislikes yet!
- Great UL option
Likes: Ultralight, perfect shape for mummy sleepers
Dislikes: Not good for side sleepers, not as comfortable as Big Agnes AXL
