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.

Primo Pad
Reviewed by Jeremy C. - September 5, 2018

Likes: Comfy, lightweight, 3 layers...think it’s a homerun based on my at home testing. I haven’t had in the field yet but I’ll be taking it on a couple back country adventures in BBNP and GUMO in the next 60 days and will find out

Dislikes: Might be thin and easy to puncture but can’t say for sure. No issues as of now

Comfortable and warm
Reviewed by Jesse S. - August 30, 2018

Likes: Good support, keeps you out of contact with the ground even when laying on your side, keeps you warm even on cold ground, very light and packs up very small, the included pump sack makes filling easy.

Dislikes: Nothing

This sleeping pad does a good job reflecting body heat. Unlike the lighter version of this sleeping pad, this one is more endurable.

Stuff bag blow up system ensures clean air into mattress.

Really Really good
Reviewed by John G. - August 11, 2018

Likes: Therm-a-rest hits out of the park with perfect size to weight ratio, ease of use, and a great R-value to keep you warm on chilly nights!

Dislikes: None so far...

Light and warm
Reviewed by Robert L. - August 6, 2018

Likes: one of the best weight to warmth ratio
I like that it has thicker material on the bottom.
includes pump sack

Dislikes: -Thermarest needs better valves. some type of flutter system.
-it doesnt have vertical baffels which is a pain if you are on one side of the mat pops out from under you or your on the ground as the air is displaced on other side of the mat. 20 in feels alot more narrow due to this.

Nice pad
