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.

The best sleeping pad for backpackers.
Reviewed by Chat - July 10, 2018

Likes: This thing is incredibly light and packs down super small. It's slightly smaller than a 32 oz nalgene. It includes a stuff sack and a field repair kit. Excellent thickness for side sleepers at 2.5 inches. Very durable material and retains body heat very efficiently.

Dislikes: Can be "crinkly" until it's been broken in. Blowing up and putting away can be time consuming without a pump sack.

The weight or lack of is one of the many reasons I bought this. Bought it for my lady friend. She loves it. It has less an r value than mine. At 12 oz, still comes with insulation.
Reviewed by Rumsters - July 9, 2018

Likes: Amazing. Lightweight. Well priced. Comes with insulation technology. Holds air really well. Easy to inflate and deflate. Packable. Very comfortable.

Dislikes: none

Awesome piece of gear
Reviewed by Robert T. - June 27, 2018

Likes: Compact and lightweight. Held air for 3 nights at a base camp, without needed to be blown up anymore.

Dislikes: It ain't cheap, but well worth it!

Amazing comfort!
Reviewed by Rachel C. - June 27, 2018

Likes: I just slept on this last night and had the BEST night of sleep! I am 4’11” so the Small length is perfect for me - I put my pack under my feet which helped to keep them off the cold ground. I love how light, small, and comfortable this is! I read other reviews about the crinkling noise before I ordered but honestly it wasn’t noisy at all!

Dislikes: Can’t think of anything - I am very pleased with this purchase!

Very lightweight and small pack sleeping pad
Reviewed by Xin W. - June 21, 2018

Likes: Very lightweight and could be packed to really small size, the best friends for backpacking, great R value keep your warm.

Dislikes: A little bit thin and it’s not as durable as xtherm, little bit noisy.

Likes: Great sleeping support from such a tiny package.

Dislikes: None

Small, Lightweight, and Comfortable
Reviewed by Joseph T. - June 4, 2018

Likes: This pad is small and light enough to take in any bag. It's super comfortable (just make sure to not fill it too much), and doesn't move around much while sleeping.
It's also very easy to pack up back in its bag, which cannot be said for some pads

Dislikes: It requires a lot of air, but this is expected with something this comfortable. It is also not the best for side sleepers, but it's still definitely manageable.

Reviewed by Chandra - May 29, 2018

Likes: It is lightweight and comfortable!

Dislikes: I just bought a new sleeping bag and the combo of clean pad and clean bag is so slippery that I don't stay on the pad. I was considering adding dots of seam sealer to the pad to make it less slippery but I will likely return it for a pad with larger side baffles so I stay on.

Compact and Light
Reviewed by Andrew M. - May 19, 2018

Likes: 16oz for the large pad

Packs down to about the size of a nalgene bottle

Dislikes: There is some noise but I was expecting it to be worse based on reviews I read, I am an active sleeper and it doesn't cause an issue for me.

Great Pad
Reviewed by Chris D. - April 16, 2018

Likes: Lightweight, great cushion, even for this 200#+ side sleeper. Previous Trekker pad I bought was hurting my hips the next day from bottoming out, not the case here!

Dislikes: None so far other than it's a bit crinkly, but, really a non-issue
