By customer request Therm-a-Rest shape-shifted the innovative NeoAir XTherm to create the NeoAir XTherm MAX. Still a lightweight packable option for cold-weather and year-round use the XTherm MAX provides greater coverage with its rectangular shape allowing larger users and restless sleepers a more comfortable night’s rest in the backcountry. The same 5.7 R-value found in the original NeoAir XTherm is retained in the XTherm MAX.

Unlike the limited number of vertical baffles employed by many traditional inflatable pads the NeoAir XTherm MAX 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.

The Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XTherm MAX 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.

  • Inflatable sleeping pad
  • Patent pending reflective barrier technology gives XTherm 4-season warmth without added weight or bulk
  • Light, durable fabrics for a smaller pack size and dependability in the backcountry
  • Suitable for year-round use

Super comfortable and warm
Reviewed by SergeFRM - July 17, 2018

Likes: This is the best pad I've ever used. It's small and light and very comfortable.

Dislikes: A side note on the crinkle sound...

Perfect size, comfort, & insulation!
Reviewed by Charles H. - July 16, 2018

Likes: I am 6’1” tall and broad shoulders. This pad allows me to sleep without sliding off. It is very comfortable & easy to inflate with inflation bag. Warm insulation. All of this in a very light & compact package.

Dislikes: Inflation valve sticks out rather than fitting flush on pad. This is necessay for inflation bag, but I prefer a flush mount.

Likes: Toasty warm
Great weight to insulation ratio

Dislikes: Seems to lose a bit of air overnight.

Solid gear here
Reviewed by Jimmie H. - July 9, 2018

Likes: firm and supportive, kept the cold ground from leeching body heat

Dislikes: not wide enough for my liking as arms basically fall off the edge. Not as disruptive as other reviewers claim as it is only slightly more noisy than a self-inflate I own

Good pad.
Reviewed by Patricia J. - July 5, 2018

Likes: It's not mummy shaped.

Dislikes: You must get the larger size.

Love it!
Reviewed by Sean - June 27, 2018

Likes: This is my second one for a double wide sleeping bag. Super light and super warm and very compact.

Dislikes: Nodda

Excellent comfortable, year-round sleeping pad!
Reviewed by Yvette M. - June 13, 2018

Likes: What makes this most worthwhile for me is that I finally have a comfortable, lightweight pad that I can use year-round! Prefer the rectangular shape; great warranty; no issue with noise. I opted for the larger size because the difference in weight is negligible. Excellent purchase!

Dislikes: None

Lightweight, Warm and Comfortable
Reviewed by Karen P. - June 11, 2018

Likes: Easy To Inflate With The Included Air Sack Or A Thermarest NeoAir Mini Pump; Lightweight and Compact To Carry In Your Backpack; Warm and Insulated For Cold Nights; Exceptionally Comfortable For Any Sleep Position , Especially For Side Sleepers. Easily Fits Inside An Exped Mat Cover For Extra Protection From Dirt and Abrasion.

Dislikes: The Mattress Is Susceptible To Punctures From Thorns and Other Sharp Objects That Are Not Properly Cleared From A Campsite And Should Be Used With A Protective Pad Underneath.
