Being a serious gear head, I can honestly say that I have tried most lightweight pads out there -- either in store or in the wilderness. The Neo far surpasses any pad I have ever used in terms of compact weight, comfort and stability. This baby is tiny and featherweight in a backpack. It will slide into some of those tiny voids while packing. This pad is simply the most comfortable pad I have ever laid my trail weary spine upon. Some pads cause added rolling when turning from back to side sleeping and back again. I for one tend to move around during the night and the Neo is neither noisy (as some people claim) or unstable. I think its the horizontal baffles that offer improved stability and warmth. I have the 20 and 25" models. The 20 is a bit too narrow, but works fine while the 25 feels like a queen size mountain matress. It literally fills the entire floor space of my MSR Hubba HP. I simply add a 1/8" or 1/4" closed cell foam pad between the Neo and my bag during colder conditions - perfect!

I cannot put a higher rating or I would. The only thing that could improve this pad is a material that is more durable for using in a camp chair, however this would then be detrimental to the insan lightness of this pad. For that I will be more careful!

Get it today!!

OK, let me just start by saying that if I did not shower, I would likely live in this baby. I told a friend once that this jacket 'regulates' me and it does. It seriously keeps me moderated in the perfect comfort zone whether I'm indoors or outside on chilly days. I've searched out this type of layer over the years, trying to shed ounces from my minimalist backpack load and have tried many brands. Bottom line: little number does is all. Incredible warmth to weight ratio, crumples down to the size of an orange, puffs back up like a proud goose, with an outer shell durable enough to fight off run-ins with occasional brush or branches around camp. The outer DWR coating will see you through a light sprinkle without worrying about soaking your down. I have 3 Montbell jackets (synthetic UL, down alpine light, and now the down UL hoody) all with impeccable construction, materials and attention to detail. A must have for any serious mountain goat.
