Backcountry Edge Exclusive! The ultra-lightweight, rectangular Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Xlte Max inflatable sleeping pad is ideal for ounce-counting backpackers who still appreciate a little extra room to sprawl. The mattress utilizes an integrated truss system and a heat-reflecting interior to achieve a 3.0 R-value.
Unlike the limited number of vertical baffles employed by most traditional inflatable pads, the NeoAir Xlite Max 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.
The Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Xlite Max is available in Regular Wide (25" 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 but No Pump Sack
Likes: Supportive and comfortable, I like the wider width as I am an active sleeper so move around a lot and don't tend to fall off this one.
Dislikes: Takes about 35 good deep breaths to fill it. I have to inflate it in 3 stages or the lightheaded feeling is not fun. I plan to pick up a pump, and really wish it came with a pump sack.
- Light and comfortable
Likes: Packs down small, comfortable, light. A fantastic backpacking option when you sleep wide. I liked that is is squared off at the corners instead of round.
Dislikes: Crinkly sound
- Very nice pad
Likes: Very comfortable pad,easy to inflate
- a very nice sleeping pad
Likes: I used this pad in Burning Man 2018. I did a ton of research before ending up choosing this sleeping pad. The R-value of 3.2 still keeps it the "comfortable to sleep on in summer conditions"-range, which the XTherm Max doesn't do. A sleeping pad too hot in the summer is a real thing..
The version where you have a wide opening is easier to inflate and deflate, but I hear there is a chance it can deflate through the the night...And it's impossible to adjust the optimal pressure of the mattress as you don't have a screw valve to let a small amount off air off. So the screw is a better choice.
Best part for me is the width. I'm 5ft11 and 185lbs. Slightly wider than avg shoulders. With this mattress when sleeping on my back I don't have to sleep with my hands crossed on top of my stomach like a body in a coffin to avoid my hands sliding off the mattress. It's just enough wide to just have them lay on the sides. Also sleeping sideways works perfect and you can curl your legs too. This was the regular length version which is fine for sleepers up to 6ft.
My previous sleeping pad was an Exped. So far I defintely prefer the horisontal chambers.
Dislikes: Yeah, it's got a bit of a candy wrapper sound to it when you move around, but I don't find it too annoying.
- The extra width makes a big difference
Likes: The extra 5 inches of width makes it so much better for me a side sleeper. I like better than the mummy shaped pads. Seems more stable than the regular xlite.
Dislikes: The valve seems hard to blow into.
- Therma a rest for the best sleep
Likes: Great size and length. Warm, easy to inflate.
Dislikes: Sleep so good, I don't want to get up in the morning!!!
- love it
wide enough ( women's was too narrow at hip)
no bottoming out
Dislikes: crinkly, but should quiet down with use
longer than I need, seems silly- but needed the width :) - no short/wide available...
- Fantastic, lightweight pad
Likes: Really glad I went with the wide version--the extra 5" are really nice, especially on a multi-night trip. The pad is extremely light, and it lost no air at all during the night. Love the quality of Therm-a-rest, and this pad is no exception. Worth the extra $$, and highly recommended.
Dislikes: Takes a little while to inflate, but if you have bigger lungs maybe not so much.
- Very comfortable
Likes: This was my first inflatable pad, and I'm very impressed. I experienced no overnight deflation. It comes with a repair kit with two glue dots and fabric covers, and alcohol wipes to clean the area (and a how-to sheet). I usually inflate it fully and then let a little air out to my liking. After I let the air out, I don't touch the ground unless I sit up on my knees or butt, which I don't mind because it's extremely comfortable when I'm lying down. I didn't experience excessive crinkling or loudness.
Dislikes: Doesn't come with an inflating aid, like the one that's attached to the stuff sack on some other thermarest pads. Must be inflated manually, which takes a few minutes and is tiring and annoying. I think this is why this pad is a little less expensive than other similar pads of this size from thermarest, and I think this pad is a good deal and would recommend it.
- Great pad!
Likes: Very comfortable pad. Fit very well with my wide shoulders. Everything I wanted in a pad
