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.

Best pad I own.
Reviewed by Jacob B. - January 6, 2019

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
Reviewed by Christopher F. - January 4, 2019

Likes: Holds in the heat. I have tried other inflatable sleeping pads but none hold in the heat as well as others.

Dislikes: None

Heavy, but Comfortable & Warm
Reviewed by Kevin - December 11, 2018

Likes: R value is fantastic, large size is terrific for the extra 5" of width vs regular. MAX version (rectangular) is perfect for those who hate mummy sized ones

Dislikes: One of the heaviest sleeping pads out

Cream of the Crop
Reviewed by Edward O. - December 7, 2018

Likes: What can I say?! The Thermarest XTherm consistently leads the pack when it comes to the warmth to weight showdown. Like a heater on the snow, and versatile enough to use year round. The MAX edition with its blunt, rectangular corners offers up just the right amount of added toss n turn ability at a weight penalty that barely registers on the ol’ kitchen scale. 2.5” tall x 20” wide x 72” of outdoor engineering courtesy of the fine folks at CD in the PNW. +++

Dislikes: Well, sure. It’s a little ‘crinkly’. But when you’re really leveraging its R-value, assume your down beanie will muffle any appreciable pad noise the XTherm generates.

Excellent warmth to weight ratio, I recommend sizing up to large size.

Likes: Warm for the weight
Packs small
Very light

Dislikes: A little too small width wise.
Can feel like you are falling off because of short width.

Very warm

Likes: Kept me toasty warm down to 15 degree weather in Great Smoky Mountains along with a BA Lost Ranger 15.

Dislikes: No well!!!

Great pad!

Amazingly Warm
Reviewed by WOP_Drive - October 11, 2018

Likes: Emanates amazing heat while in use; lightweight; easy to inflate

Dislikes: 20x72 never seem wide enough

large and comfortable
Reviewed by Ronnie G. - September 23, 2018

Likes: Like the squared shape better than the mummy shape. Fits in a small stuff sack. Haven't had it out in cold weather.

Dislikes: none

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
