Cushy and warm enough for any season, and light enough for the stingiest backpackers.
In the world of lightweight backpacking, the less an item weighs, the fewer features it's supposed to have. Not true with the Therm-a-Rest All Season All-Season Sleep Pad. The patent-pending Triangular Core Matrix technology creates over 100 cells and reflective barriers to trap warm air without the bulk of regular insulation, so you can enjoy unprecedented comfort on the trail in any season.
- Tough, lightweight nylon on the bottom of the pad withstands rough campsites and the reflective polyester fabric on top enhances warmth and comfort by remaining soft and dry as you sleep
- Lightweight, insulation-free design has an R-Value of 4.9 and features a reflective barrier to send warmth back towards your body and preserve precious body heat during winter camping
- Patent-pending Triangular Core Matrix uses more than a hundred cells to keep air from shifting around for a more stable sleeping surface compared to other non-insulated sleeping pads
- Inside its 2.5-inches of cushioning are two layers of cells, which allow the top cells to recirculate your heat and the bottom layer to insulate against the cold Earth
- NeoAir insulation-free technology lets you pack the pad down to a 9 x 4.5in roll (regular) for easy storage in a pack while weighing a little over a pound
- Inflation valve can be inflated by mouth or by using the included pump valve and sack
- Pump valve can be fixed to any plastic bag or compression sack for inflating without having to catch your breath in high elevations
- Included repair kit permits quick fixes during your long treks
- Three sizes, medium, regular, and large, fit your size and weight preferences
- Made in Seattle, WA to keep things domestic

Super small, easy to inflate, does seem a bit fragile (but has not damaged at all yet) and makes a bit of rustling noise as you move on it - I'm big 100kg and works great - used in snow and was great. Feels a bit narrow - but I'm big and roll a fair bit so that is something I make do with
Just tested this out on a week long snow camping mission in the Montana backcountry and loved it. Although isn't always a particular concern for me, it packed small enough as comparable Big Agnus pads I've had. We had some cold nights out there (-20) and I never felt any warmth slipping through my pad. Perhaps it takes a little longer than standard pads to inflate, but the extra time is well worth the good night sleep it provides. If you're looking for one pad to handle virtually any camping endeavor, this is it.
Awesome pad, light to pack and warm!
I've used this for about 3 months now, including a 3 week cycle tour in Tasmania. Really comfortable and warm. Haven't used it in winter yet though but will be ok with a good bag. Easy to pack small and blow up with your mouth.

This is a great pad, it packs down a little shorter, but a little wider than a nalgene bottle. It's very light and doesn't take up much space inside my pack. I've used this Jan. 2012 up at Priest lake, ID on our annual snow camp out and it kept me plenty warm combined with a zero degree sleeping bag. I love the fact that it's over 2" thick, not sure that it's 2.5", but maybe I didn't have it all the way inflated. Either way it's the best nights sleep that I've had on a camping trip.

Great product. As mentioned in the title, it is comfortable, light, and small. Much more comfortable than the older Thermorest Prolite Plus- but also fairly pricey in comparison.
Seems warm (warmer than the Prolite Plus). The durability is yet to be seen, but so far no problems.
Not a fan of the odd green color- the only real drawback.

This is a great all around pad. If you can stomach the risk of a punctured pad on snow, this is great year round. Plenty warm on cold ground/snow and light enough to be used in the summer if you're only buying one pad. Never had a problem with it being noisy.
I bought this for a colorado spike camp during muzzleloader elk season. My two buddies slept on the ground and never got a good nights sleep due to the hard uneven ground. I slept like a baby with this pad. Well worth the money....
This sleeping pad is great. Its lightweight, packs down very small which is great for long camping trips, and the stuff sack for it also doubles as a air pump for the pad as well which is nice so you're not huffing and puffing to blow it up. I have used this pad only a few times this summer but so far I have had no problems with it.
I've camped numerous times from 0 degrees down to -40F on this mat and I can literally feel my body heat being reflected back up to me. It's so warm (compared to so many other pads I've used in the past), I've started bringing a lighter weight sleeping bag. I now sleep in my down jacket & insulated pants in a 0 degree quilt at 30 below zero and never wake up cold. It's super comfortable, too.
Awesome pad, but why not get the lighter & warmer XTherm? That's what I switched to.
Definitely satisfied! I previously owned another company sleeping pad and I can proudly say I'm glad I made the switch to Therm-a-Rest. It's super compact, light in weight and comes with an inflating bag that doubles as stuff sack. I made the switch to Therm-a-Rest because I had air leak problems with my previous pad and the noise it made with any movement was just unbearable. Not the case with Therm-a-Rest NeoAir, so far....I've only had the pad this summer so I still have to see how it will hold up in the Pacific Northwest winter weather. Only downside, due to its light green color, the upside of the pad stains real easily. Definitely recommend this pad to all looking for a light and compact pad.
Oh yeah, one more thing. I don't get people whining about blowing up a pad. It only takes 20-30 breaths. Not much effort for the comfort. This takes less effort than most of our hikimg and climbing. Besides, you even have to blow up your regular thermarest!
I just spent ten nights in the Bugaboos (BC) using this pad. Very warm and super comfortable! I still carry a short foam pad just in case of a puncture and to protect the neo air (did the same with my regular thermarest too). The material is tough, but thin, so you have to be careful with it. I wouldn't use it w/o a groud sheet, etc. I didn't use the silly pump bag. I work as a climbing/mtn guide and spend many nights out, and this pad is the most comfortable that I have had yet!
This is a great sleeping pad! Keeps you warm, super light, and packs down way small! I have even used this visiting friends and sleeping on their floor.
I purchased the original neoair two years ago, use it regularly, and still really appreciate it. So, I was hesitant to purchase this newer model. After some consideration, I felt that it was time to try this new and improved version out.
I LOVE IT! I spent 10 days camping in Yosemite with a friend, he was on my old neoair and I was on the new one. The all-season model kept it's loft morning after morning when the temps would drop. It also is significantly quieter than the original, which is a really nice, upgraded feature. I have not slept in negative temperatures with this pad, but so far on the colder nights (25 degrees), it feels like it insulates well.
I would highly recommend this pad, for car camping, and for those looking for the best, lightest pad on the market.
While it sounds like a potato chip bag, this pad is comfy. I got my wife one and she loves it, it is light weight, the warmth is there, at least down to the mid 20's when we used it and she slept great. Lighter and just as comfy if not more comfy than my BA pad.
The pump and stuff sack, while a cool idea add extra un-needed weight. The stuff sack included with it is too big, I assume to help use as a pump. So we only use that for storage when not in use.
A great pad, for a great nights sleep.
Therm-a-Rest invented NeoAir technology to provide a no-compromise solution to outdoor sleep comfort. This video explains how NeoAir mattresses provide a high level of warmth and comfort without the weight and bulk found in conventional mattresses. It also details some of the NeoAir mattresses on the market today and their advantages.
What an awesome pad. The noise didn't bother me like some of the other reviewers, it is a small price to pay for such a comfortable nights sleep. It is amazing how much heat you retain sleeping on it.
