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.

- Light and comfortable
Likes: Light weight and takes up minimal pack space.
Easy to inflate (see YouTube for garbage bag pump).
Easy to deflate and fit in stuff sack (along with my homemade pump).
Comfortable sleeping on both back and side (no bottoming out).
Dislikes: Maybe the color
- Decent pad if counting ounces is more important than counting Zs
Likes: Compacts down very small
Ultra lightweight, great for backpack camping
Dislikes: Very noisy
Not as comfortable as you would hope for the price tag
- Ultra light and ultra comfy
Likes: Extremely light. Easy to inflate/deflate. Warm. Comfortable.
Dislikes: It is small, even for my small frame, but happy with this tradeoff as it cut even more weight. Just have to wedge yourself in so you don't slip off as easily.
Likes: light, packable, comfy, and people who stand behind their stuff
