1.Big Agnes Insulated Q-Core Sleeping Pad
2.Big Agnes Q-Core SL Insulated Sleeping Pad
3.Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XLite Sleeping Pad
4.Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Trekker Sleeping Pad

If you have any questions at all please either chat in or give one of our gearheads a call and we can help narrow down your selection.

According to the manufacturer's website,...

According to the manufacturer's website, the new 2014 models have an R-value of 3.0. The tech specs here list the R-value as 2.0. Could you please clarify?

Responded on

Hey Paul!
The pistachio color is the new 2014 model with the R value of 3, since we still have the older Everglade color from last year the spec hasn't changed on the site. The R Value of the Everglade is 2.

Will this work in a hammock also?

Will this work in a hammock also?

Best Answer Responded on

Hey Dale,

This will work with a hammock but might I suggest not filling it up all the way so the that air channels are a little more flexible and wont want to snap to being a flat surface as you roll around at night.

Responded on

Hi Dale,

The NeoAir Trekker's are great in a hammock because of their additional width. Like Wayne says above don't completely inflate the matt that way the matt will shape to the hammock and with the extra width your shoulders will also stay warm. You can even tuck your knees up and not cold cold spots.

I have the LT and don't go anywhere in the backcountry without it and my hammock. I have heard from the friend the large is too large for a hammock and he's over six foot tall!

She loves it!

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

I still own and use the original NeoAir as well as many other designs and brands of sleeping pads. Some are better than others depending on the environment and temps. The Trekker is no exception.

I was looking for the "perfect" pad for my gf, knowing she is a side and stomach sleeper. This virtually eliminated most pads.

The 2.0 R value is more than adequate for the type of environments in which it will be used. If not, she can always throw down an extra closed cell pad.

The Rectangular shape has more area than mummy shaped pads. It is more durable than all of my other air pads, inexpensive, and more comfortable than Exped's vertical baffles and Nemo's horizontal baffles as well as Big Agnes' grooves(very slippery too). I highly recommend this pad in either the older version (if you can still get your hands on one, Everglade) and the newer Pistachio/Seattle Gray.

Unanswered Question

Does the 2014 model come with a stuff sack...

Does the 2014 model come with a stuff sack and repair kit? Does it have significant advantages to the 2013 model? I've never bought/used anything aside from foam in the past.

LT = "Large Torso", not "Large Tall"

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I naively thought that "LT" had become synonymous with "Large Tall" in reference to sizing, but apparently the folks at Cascade Designs decided to throw a curve ball and have it stand for Large Torso. Confusing much? The reason the LT is on sale is because it's a little under 4ft in length, making it relatively useless unless you plan on using it for your child or dog.

I returned this and got the Regular length which at 6ft was plenty long for my 6'3" frame . Any longer and it would not fit in most tents. The NeoAir technology is really impressive. It has 3x the cushion of my ultralight Therm-a-Rest and rolls up to half the size. It may be a bit heavier, but it's an impressive leap in technology.

YMMV but the long torso model works for me at6' 2". I put my pack under my lower legs and whatever I am not wearing under my head.

is this one the older version? i noticed...

is this one the older version? i noticed on the thermarest website that they have the Trekker for 2014, but it's a pistachio color?

Responded on

The Pistachio is a Spring/Summer 2014 variant while this Everglade is the Fall/Winter 2013 model. We have the Pistachio on order and they should start arriving in the next few weeks.

Does this include a repair kit?

sweet sleeper

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got my neoair second-hand and spent about 70 nights sleeping on it over the summer. It's still kicking butt.

You need to be mindful of it (I use a plastic ground-sheet and a thin foam pad under mine), same with any light-weight inflatable sleeping pad, but it's impressively durable considering the size an weight. The only issue I've had came up after a night of sleeping in a campsite full of thorns. The pad got a small puncture, which I was able to find and easily fix with the patch-kit provided, and it continues to work great now.

Blowing it up every night is bit of an ordeal and if you use it at a base-camp you'll find that, over time, it slowly deflates and requires a couple extra breaths every day or so. To me, it's all worth it for the comfort, though.

Ultimately, I would recommend it to anyone who has trouble falling asleep, anyone with back pain, and anyone who spends more than 5 days a year sleeping on the ground.

Incredible!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

So far, so good! I have only used it about 10 times, but so far it holds air all night.

It packs nice and small, and it's nice and light. It takes a little longer to blow up than some other pads I've used, but I take that trade off for the comfortable sleep any day!

Good purchase

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Took this out for a week on the AT and slept like a baby. Even on a rocky surface, the pad kept me comfortable. It is 20 breaths to blow it up but not an issue for me. I ordered a regular and it just fits inside my tent. Im 5'10, 185lbs and a side sleeper and it kept me high and warm.If you're looking for a lightweight, compact, very comfortable, warm sleeping pad, look no further!

Great Pad!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have used this pad for a very long time. I am surprised with how comfortable, light, and how much this pad has been able to endure. I Love this pad and would recommend this pad for any use.

Great Pad

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used this everywhere from the United States' Southeast to the banks of the Arctic Ocean (summertime). It gets small enough to fit in my nalgene if I wanted it too yet it is large and comfy enough that it's practically a portable air mattress. Yea I might be a little dizzy taking the last few breaths blowing it up, but I've never fallen asleep on uncomfortable terrain quicker. It breaks down fast and easy and isn't a hassle to get into the provided stuff sack. Great Purchase.

light and comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got the "large torso" model which is 25 x 47 inches. It weighs exactly a pound according to my cheap plastic kitchen scale. I used this on a week-long backpacking trip and it worked quite well. The pad is nice and thick, so I always had a nicew cushion for my hips, shoulders, and head. My feet extended off the end of the pad but I put some clothes or an empty pack under them and that worked fine. This pad seems to be more sturdy than some of the lighter models; the fabric feels a little bit thicker and tougher.

Good lightweight pad

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Took this pad out camping and it worked pretty well. I got a good night sleep on it, and the size worked for me--I'm a medium-sized lady--but it may be on the narrow side for anyone much bigger than I am, particularly the guys. My only complaint would be that it's pretty loud if you toss and turn at all, but once you're asleep, it's all good!

Hi.
My NeoAir is perfect for the first...

Hi.
My NeoAir is perfect for the first hours of sleep. But midway through the night I wake up cause som eof the air has gone out of it, and I'm toucing the ground with my hip. I have submerged it to try and find the puncture, but no luck. I also filled it a couple of hours before going to bed, the refilled, so temp of air should not be the prob. I think there are small punctures in it, but can't be sure.
Anyone got a good suggestion for me?

Best Answer Responded on

Hey Runar,

Submerging it should show the bubbles rising from active, larger leaks, but slow leaks will usually show up as bubbles that cling to the surface of the pad. First, try submerging it for longer and looking for those types of bubbles. You may also have a valve or minor seam issue. If you try to find the problem one more time and still can't pin it down, call Backcountry and/or Cascade Designs to arrange for either a return, exchange, or a repair, whether it's under lifetime warranty or not. You'll find both resources very fair and accommodating.

It's not too late to sleep like a baby

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Final a sleeping pad that really gets you off the ground. You wont miss an hour of sleep with this pad. Sure it takes a little longer to blow up but it is well worth the time. The noise is minimal, especially from within your sleeping bag. I also found that I can sleep on my side with this pad and still not hit the ground. I'm 5'10" and 145lbs.

I would recommend the regular to anyone who is around my size and needs that added cushion between them and nature.
