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
- Sleeping pad
Likes: I have bought several sleeping pads in the last year and this one is the best I’ve had. It has a R value of 5.7 and it is truly warmer than the others I have. This packs down very small compared to my trail pro. It has a higher loft. It is a little noisy but I don’t mind.
- So Far So Good
Likes: What I like is how considerably warm it stayed underneath me. I've slept on a sleeping pad that had little to no insulation underneath and I noticed the difference in temperatures 30º-40º when the ground was really cold. I tend to run warmer when I'm asleep and I move around a lot. That being said, the regular width is too narrow for me. I'm just about 27" wide so I definitely hang off the sides of the regular size pad, if i lay on my back. Noise wise, I don't think it's noisy enough to bother my neighbors, but it's there. You don't sink down to the ground, if you're sitting one spot, probably because of the triangular internal structure.
Dislikes: No dislikes, I just don't fit well on a regular size.
- Warm, comfortable and not very noisy
Likes: Took the NEOAIR XTHERM snow backpacking in March. Had never backpacked in snow and was a bit concerned I'd freeze my backside off. Temp dropped down to 20 degrees at night and with my Mtn. Hardware 15 bag on top of my new pad, stayed warm in tent. Read other reviews about pad being too noisy, but after hiking 3 miles in snow shoes and crawling in tent didn't really real much crackling noise.
Dislikes: I bought the long pad, I like the extra width but a bit too long in tent. Not a deal breaker.
- Big Upgrade
Likes: I had the Xlite prior to this and was worried about the durability. This pad put my fears to bed.
- Great pad
Dislikes: loud, crinkly sound when you move around
- Nice and warm but a little bulky
Likes: Warm, Thick and plenty long enough to keep me insulated from the snow below
Dislikes: A little bulky
- The pad of all pads
Likes: Warmth to weight ratio is stellar, rectangle cut allows for more sleeping positions than a curved pad
Dislikes: The crunching sound from the material used isn't as bad as some people say it is, but if you are one to roll around a lot at night, this may bother your fellow backpacking buddies. And while this pad is warm, you still will need a great bag if you want to be comfortable in freezing conditions.
- Prefer quieter options that deflate easier
Likes: We expected to like this pad due to its horizontal baffles, warmth, and light weight. We were underwhelmed for the price, and found Exped to be more comfortable and quiet, and easier to inflate/deflate, which was worth the extra ounces to us.
Dislikes: very crinkly/noisy
pump sack inflation option wasn't ideal for valve type
deflate process requires more effort than a dual valve system
- Best pad I own.
Likes: I have 4 sleeping pads and this is my favorite. It's a little less noisy than the regular Xlite and only a little heavier but keeps me alot warmer.
Dislikes: Takes a while to blow up.
- Very Warm and Comfortable
Likes: Holds in the heat. I have tried other inflatable sleeping pads but none hold in the heat as well as others.
