NeoAir XLite

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Therm-a-rest NeoAir XLite mattress is the perfect balance of warmth, size, and weight for a light backpacking kit. The pad weighs just 12 ounces with an R-Value of 3.2 in a profile the size of a one-liter water bottle. The Therm-a-rest NeoAir XLite inflatable mattress is a marvel of warmth in a small package. I was still using the very first NeoAir model, which was revolutionary when it came out but only had an R-Value of 2. The NeoAir XLite has an R-Value of 3.2. It doesn’t sound like much… Full review


rated 1.5 of 5 stars A fine product if you want a lightweight packable mattress. I have gone through about six mattresses and ended up using another brand. Although the Therm-A-Rest line works well at first, I found ALL the ones I owned were prone to leaks after extensive camping. My first purchase was the first year they came out. Gave them four tries over the years, every time they'd change the seal I'd purchase the model to see if it stood up better than the previous model. But finally I had to change. I went with… Full review

NeoAir XLite

rated 5 of 5 stars Love this pad! It's durable, comfortable, lights, and the rolls up easily (my favorite part, because we all know how bad it sucks to spend ten minutes trying to get a pad back into its sleeve. Overall I'd say it is the best pad on the market, and I have tried many. Plus, it doubles as a raft for the lake, however I doubt this is recommended. See below for a great story. Love this pad and I will tell you why! One night while backing in Colorado, I went to bed and like to bring my water… Full review

NeoAir XLite

rated 5 of 5 stars Perfect: ultraight, packs small, comfy, and not noisy. You will not find a lighter more comfy air pad at 12oz and 3 R-value. They updated the material so it hardly makes any noise and is slightly grippy so you don't slide off. I also like the old school simple screw valve. Dropped 7 oz from my previous air pad. I wouldn't change a thing. p.s. I blow mine up with an older style Big Agnes Pumphouse that fits over the valve, which prevents moisture/mold inside the pad, and it doubles as a dry bag. Full review

RidgeRest Solar

rated 4 of 5 stars The most important thing about backpacking to me is my level of comfort. Most of my time spent on the trail, I'm walking. So the comfort level of walking is most important. The Therm-a-Rest RidgeRest Solar's weight is a crucial piece of the puzzle for helping keep the weight down on my pack and making my time walking as comfortable as possible. I don't mind sleeping on the ground and prefer a firmer pad. This is something one should keep in mind about most closed cell pads amongst the RidgeRest… Full review
