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.

Real Customer Reviews
- Easy to install and use during camping
Likes: Very good product, easy to fit in my backpack. Comes with a sack that can be used as a pump to inflate the sleeping pack and easily deflated into the carrying pack
Dislikes: Nothing at this moment.
- Great, if you get the right width.
Likes: The Therm-a-Rest Neoair Xtherm does everything it says it will. The std. pump bag (not available with all models) is great.
Dislikes: The issue is in choosing width. The 20" wide model is to be used by side sleepers and those who use (narrow) mummy bags. The 25" wide is needed for back sleepers, quilt users, and those who move a bit in their sleep.
- Good quality
Likes: Good warm pad. Works good for me in spring weather as a side sleeper.
- Great sleeping pad
Likes: This is my first sleeping pad and it seems very comfortable. Easy to blow up and is very compact
Dislikes: Not as wide as I would like. Should have got the bigger size but it was on sale
Likes: I upgraded from a women’s thermarest pro lite plus and I am a much happier side sleeper. This pad is more comfortable and less bulky. I also prefer the rectangular shape to the mummy shape of the pro lite plus and it weights less. Although other reviewers have stated that it is noisy, I find that it is minimal and didn’t bother me.
Likes: I have had several different pads all claiming to be the warmest and insulated. This one is the ONE that actually is.
Dislikes: No Dislikes.
- Warm, comfortable and noisy.
Likes: Very warm. Comfortable and easy to adjust comfort level. Good warmth to weight ratio.
Dislikes: Very noisy when adjusting position. Could be an issue if you are sleeping near a light sleeper.
- Great Pad
Likes: This pad is lightweight, warm, and comfortable...packs down to a pretty compact size. I like this shape better than the mummy shape because for taller people your legs won't slide off.
Dislikes: If you toss and turn a lot, it will make noise so if you or your tent mate is a light sleeper, that could be an issue.
- Great product, warm, lots of room
Likes: Comfortable and Warm
- Purchased for a thru hike.
Likes: I like the stuff sack/bag pump that comes with.
This pad has an excellent R value compared to any other light weight sleeping pads.
Dislikes: The weight is a couple more ounces than described.
