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
- Gold standard for lightweight 3-season pad
Likes: Very light, comfortable, warm for weight
Dislikes: The insulating material makes a soft crinkling noise when moving around - it’s minor and not annoying, and well worth the benefits it confers
- Ultra lightweight
Likes: Super lightweight with small pack.
Dislikes: Make some noises when in during body moves.
- Would buy Agan
Likes: Very well made. Lightweight and comfortable.
- Great, but not field tested
Likes: Comfort, thickness and warmth
Dislikes: Noisy, but who cares
- Good for very small person / child
Likes: More lightweight than the standard size. If you can make it work for you then you're saving big on pack weight. Excellent comfort and good insulation for three-season camping.
Dislikes: I bought this based upon reviews by thru hikers for whom ounces matter (they matter to me too). Some folks use this for their torso and rest their legs on their backpack (emptied out). However I found that because the pad is designed for a very small person or child, the pad is narrowest right where my knees hit, and narrows gradually from the head down. I'm a side sleeper and my knees would wind up on the floor. May work for some, especially a back sleeper, but not for me.
- Ultralight without many compromises
Likes: Extremely light
Dislikes: A little noisy
Firmness and height make use of a pillow necessary
- best night yet on a pad
Likes: This is a super light, thick dreamy wonder. I'm 60 years old and am feeling the aches and pains of arthritis in my hips. This pad gave me back a good night's sleep in the wilderness of the Sierras, that I dearly love.
Dislikes: It tends to be a bit noisy when you move around, but I didn't find it overtly terrible, and I wish it was a tad wider, but these small annoyances won't deny me giving this pad an excellent rating.
- great mat
Likes: light weight
Dislikes: little small at the feet
- Great Sleeping Pad
Likes: weight, packed size, warmth
- Cream of the Crop
Likes: Great weight or lack of! For pack-ability and comfort you can't go wrong. When I'm not concerned about terrain punctures, this is the pad.
Dislikes: Biggest concern is possibility of mold growth inside the pad if you blow it up directly with your breath. The make bags and devices to blow them up with ambient air.
