User Review: Therm-a-Rest NeoAir
Price Paid: $140
ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS PAD! I have been through Thermarest (both regular and ultralight), Slumber Jack (my first, busted now) etc. and this is, by far and away, the best night's sleep I've gotten under any circumstances.
I haven't had any 'delamination' issues as others have reported and I've logged about 40 nights on it since purchasing last November.
The truest test - I camped on snow pack during the East Coast's worst storm at 4250 ft elevation with a recorded temperature of -12 and an apparent temperature of -19. I did not use any pad underneath or in between my bag and the ground. I was sleeping in a -20 deg. Big Agnes Battle Mountain (600 fill plus bamboo synthetic). I was so hot at night w/o long johns that I had to crack my sleeping bag to let out the moisture from sweating. Since then, nothing has been as cold but I think that speaks for itself.
Also, I'm a side sleeper and this is the only pad that I've ever gotten comfortable on and STAYED comfortable throughout a night. It's so pleasing to sleep through a whole evening.
