The warmest offering in Therm-a-Rest's innovative line of inflatable mattresses, the NeoAir XTherm is a lightweight, packable option for cold-weather and year-round use. Its 5.7 R-value is far warmer than traditional inflatable pads.
Unlike the limited number of vertical baffles employed by many traditional inflatable pads, the NeoAir XTherm utilizes horizontal air baffles. Therm-a-Rest's Triangular Core Matrix technology and the increased number of baffles help to minimize convective cooling, increase stability and eliminate the "inflatable raft" feeling caused by overinflated vertical baffles. In addition, stacked ThermaCapture reflective internal barriers actually direct heat back to your body and cold air back to the ground!
The inflatable construction provides a full 2.5"-thick base of support. 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 XTherm packs down as small as a 1-liter water bottle.
The Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XTherm is available in Regular (20" x 72") and Large (25" x 77") size options. A repair kit is included for unexpected emergencies along with a stuff sack and medium pump sack for ease of storage and inflation.

Real Customer Reviews
- small size, warm
Likes: Collapses down to small size (roughly the size of a 1L Nalgene water bottle). I also like that it comes with both a sack to stuff the pad into, and also a larger bag to inflate the pad (so you don't need to use your lips)
Dislikes: Makes a crinkly sound when you shift on it, but it's not as bad as what others make it out to be
- A good night's sleep is priceless
Likes: This pad is my first backpacking pad I purchased, so i have no comparison to other sleeping pads, but what I do know is that in my first trip using it in the Linville Gorge Wilderness area in NC: it performed fantastic. Reason I say that is that I slept well; it am a ‘turner’: go from back to side, to stomach, to other side, etc. I woke up fresh; fresher than some of the cheapo motel mattresses I’ve slept on. There was no noise issue for me, didn’t really notice it. In short the weight/size, R-value, comfort level, make this a a great value and purchase for me.
- Excellent all-season pad
Likes: Extremely warm. Durable. Excellent build quality.
Dislikes: None so far. Some people say the noise but wasn't an issue for me so far.
- Superb insulation and weight for an inflatible pad.
Likes: -Not too heavy.
-Extremely high R-value (5.7) much higher than most so you can sleep on snow.
-4 season use
Dislikes: It's a little loud when moving around at night, but it doesn't bother me too much.
- Amazingly warm, lightweigth pad
Likes: Super warm, if you lay on it in your house you will sweat on whatever side touches it. Also super lightweight and packable.
Dislikes: The old stem style valve is outdated and should be replace with the dual flap style for easier inflation and deflation.
- Excellent Pad
Likes: Very light weight for size and comfort
- Warm, comfortable, but a bit too narrow
Likes: -Love the warmth: I typically camp in the High Sierras and this pad alone has kept me comfortably warm in a simple shirt and boxers, where previously I'd have to wear a baselayer or two.
-I, nor my campmates, have had any problems with the noise, as other reviewers may have
Dislikes: -I love the pad, but my biggest gripe is the width, and that is why I'm going to get the large size instead. I got it the in the regular size, which is a width of 18 inches. It is just a tad too narrow for me, and I have a small frame of only being 5'4". I can't imagine anyone larger being okay with the width. My elbows just hang over the edge.
-Takes a bit to blow up. Some may have an issue with that, but I just take my time.
- Great for moderate temp Alpine climbs
Likes: The most important feature while selecting a sleeping pad is the compactibility, weight and R-Value. This pad had all the qualities and was a great buy for moderate alpine climbs in Summer or Fall.
Dislikes: It was a bit narrow for my sleeping bag fit and the sleeping bag edges got damped eventhough there was a tent floor! So if this one was a bit broader it would be great!
- Warm and Easy to Use
Likes: Lightweight, easy to inflate with included bag inflator, warm and comfortable.
Dislikes: Noisy (to be expected) and I had a tendency to slide on it while sleeping though it was not a large problem.
- Nice and warm backpackers pad
Likes: Packs small, lightweight, warm
Dislikes: Not the most comfortable -feels like sleeping on an air mattress. You have to blow it up, unless you buy the extra pump.
