Very happy with my new

Very happy with my new wide Neoair. Would recommend anyone thinking about wide vs regular to go with the wide. So much better sleep. Not falling off anymore. It does also seem quieter than my older previous version.

Check your order

I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I recently ordered a pad for my son's graduation party since he had really gotten into backpacking. All was well and arrived on time with no issue until we opened the box. The only thing was the pad, no inflation sack or repair kit like it advertised. I've ordered a few times from backcountry without issue until this small snag. It's just a word of caution to check what arrives incase parts are missing.

Solid product

Like I was in my own bed. Although the bag to inflate it is kind of silly . All in all I give it 10/10. I’ve gone though many other name brand sleeping pads of similar design. Every single one was either uncomfortable, not warm enough or flimsy. So far this hits the mark.

Cozy warm

So warm, so quiet. I can’t believe I used to use a Klymit sleeping pad. This one is way better. I’m worried about longevity but hopefully it can be patched easily. It’s one of the only pads made in USA.

Leaked Air Every Night

Leaks every night. Stinks because all the sites state its the "best" overall pad on the market. Left now to look for another. Nemo? I will say, if it were to hold its air it would be quite a nice pad.

Top tier matt!

I received the Regular Wide a few months ago and have since used it in Canada, NZ and Aus while working as a guide. If you're an athletic bloke with broad shoulders, 6ft or under, who's sick and tired of feeling like they're sleeping on an ironing board.. this matt is for you! Hard to surpass in terms of comfort and weight.

Leaking air after the very first use. Very disappointing as it was used indoors and on a smooth surface.

Comfortable and convenient, but noisy

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
5' 9"

I couldn't decide between this sleeping pad and the insulated NEMO Tensor. They both had very similar specs and price, so I bought them both in the standard mummy size for an 8 day backpacking trip with my daughter in the Patagonias. She used the Thermarest and I used the NEMO. We had all weather from freezing to warm. The two models really are almost identical from a practical perspective. About the same size, weight, R-factor and thickness. They were both very comfortable, even on rocks and roots. But there are two factors where we both preferred the NEMO over the Thermarest. First, the design of the pump sack is much better on the NEMO. The pump sack for the Thermarest was really hard to get on and off, didn't inflate as easily or seal as well. Second, the Thermarest was much noisier. I know this is no surprise as it is a common complaint, but having the two next to each other it was really obvious how much quieter the NEMO was. I did not have any quality issues with either as some have reported. Both held up very well. So, in the end, I give the Thermarest 4 stars and the NEMO 5 stars.

Long Distance Hiker Couple

After using a Thermarest pad for a few week-long hikes, it developed a tear that was not repairable. Mailed it in to Thermarest and they sent me a replacement. That replacement has been used on the entire length of the Appalachian Trail. It got used for over 1600 miles on the PCT this year and numerous shorter hikes. It did develop a slow leak on the PCT. A piece of tenacious tape fixed that problem. Just got back from backpacking in Big Bend and the Gila Wilderness this past month. We are headed to the Pinohoti Trail and then will be back on the PCT in April. That Thermarest pad continues to keep me sleeping well. My husband also uses a Thermarest. One of the baffles just burst on his. We are mailing it in for warranty work. No air mattress is going to survive all conditions, but with some basic care, a thermarest pad holds up solidly and if there are issues, we know that the company stands behind their products. Highly recommend the brand and their products.

Tougher than it appears!

I bought my X-lite many years ago when I worked at a well known outdoor retailer in England, it's comfortable and has kept me warm and comfortable on uneven ground and in the UK winter. On a couple of occasions when using it with my bivi bag, it has slipped down the groundsheet I was using onto the gravel floor of robin hood's cave and the priests hole, and I've still never had any leaks. I'd definitely replace it with the newer version when/if it finally gives up.
