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 3.2 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
- 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
- Weight saver
Likes: Comfy and light weight.
Dislikes: We'll see how fabric holds up on the Hoh next month. Pretty thin.
- Great pad
Likes: Great comfort and width
- Comfy and Wide, Outdated valve
Likes: I really appreciate the extra space the wide has. Very comfortable and not even half as loud as people claim.
Dislikes: The valve feels outdated and a little risky. When I roll it up some times it feels like it is going to fail me but it never does. Sea to Summit valves are the best in my opinion.
- Lightweight and perfect size.
Likes: Probably the best sleeping pad I've ever slept on. Very versatile too. The 25" width is great for side sleeping especially if you flip sides often like I do. The regular/wide is the perfect size and worth the extra few ounces for a great night's sleep. Still extremely light and compact for a wide pad. Also tried it in the hammock and the extra width gives me some wrap around my shoulders for insulation and support. Works well if you're looking for both ground and a hammock pad. Just can't say enough good things about this pad, it's perfect!
- Great Pad
Likes: Perfect balance of durability, size, weight and comfort. I tried out numerous pads from Nemo, Sea to Summit, REI, Big Agnes and even other Therm-A-Rest models. I finally settled on this one. I am a raucous side sleeper that tosses and turns like I’m sleeping on a ship in a hurricane. This is the only pad that gives me even close to a decent night’s sleep. I am a skinny 5’10” and I got the large. I used to have a regular Nemo Tensor and it was 20” wide. I always felt like I was sleeping on the very edge of a cliff and about to fall off. I debated on the Regular Wide, but I like to stretch out sometimes and whenever I use regular sized sleeping pads, my pillow (or sack of clothes I’m using as a pillow) always falls off the pad. I end up having to pile everything up on the ground and push it up against the tent floor so it doesn’t move at night. I chose the Large so everything fits on the pad. My body fits on it when I’m lying on my stomach and my pillow fits on it and doesn’t fall off the back when I toss and turn. The Large is about an inch taller when rolled up in my pack compared to the Regular Wide. The weight is so negligible that if you have any doubt, just get the Large. You’ll be happy you did.
Dislikes: As many have stated on the internet, the pad is slightly noisier than other pads. It really is a non-issue though. ALL pads make noise when you toss and turn or slide nylon sleeping bag material across them. Nature itself is not quiet. If you need absolute silence while sleeping, and noise bothers you or your tentmate, wear earplugs and bring an extra pair for your partner. It makes all the difference. I always wear earplugs in the wilderness no matter what anyway.
