    Lightweight luxury.

    You're gearing up for week-long sprint down the Pacific Crest Trail and you need an ultra-light sleeping pad that won't weigh you down or take up precious cargo space in your pack, but you also realize that if you don't make your sleeping time count, you'll be exhausted and your pace will suffer. Not to worry, the Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XLite Sleeping Pad features a smart design and proven technology to keep you warm and comfy while minimizing weight and bulk.

    Although it packs up smaller than a one-liter water bottle when you stuff it into your pack, it delivers comfort fit for a king once inflated. Lightweight, yet tough nylon can handle sharp jabs from rocky campsites, while the soft no-slip top fabric boosts comfort and keeps you from slipping off your pad when you're sleeping on uneven ground. ThermaCapture layers within the pad reflect body heat, and Triangular Core Matrix construction maximizes insulating properties to keep the cold ground from robbing all your warmth. Whether you're a minimalist backpacker or a dedicated thru-hiker, get the rest you need for the long trek ahead with the NeoAir XLite sleeping pad.

    Lightest there is!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is a great lightweight pad. It is one of the lightest there is. I have had mine for 3 years and haven't had a single problem. I have used it on at least five 5-day backpacking trips. It inflates easily. it is well made. It crinkles a little when you move so there is a little bit of noise at night but nothing major. Best pad for the weight.

    Light, warm, packable.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Okay, so the noise is noticeable, but definitely not a deal-breaker. I have spent many nights on this pad and nobody in my tent or otherwise has complained about the noise once we are settled in to our sleeping bags. As well, thermarest has worked to make a newer version than mine with softer, quieter materials. Noise complaints aside, this pad is amazing. The durability has astounded me on several occasions despite the pad's tissue-paper like weight and feel. The comfort is awesome. It is warm enough to use without extra insulation most months of the year and is also lofty enough for side sleepers. Save weight and space with this amazingly comfortable pad.

    Great 3-season pad

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Super light and packs up about the size of a standard Nalgene bottle yet also really comfortable.. It's what I take out the majority of the time.
    My grips are the noise the and effort it takes to blow it up. But all things considered, worthy of the 5-star rating.

    Awesome pad!

      Used this for my CT and LT thru-hikes this summer and it held up well. Excellent packability. Kept me warm/insulated from the ground and it was cushy comfortable. I didn't find it to be as noisy as other reviewers. Only thing that bugged me was the amount of effort it took to inflate!

      Neo Air Xlite

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      First few test was on the floor. I purchased the item for light weight backpacking. Even though I heard some people complain about being noisy. As a side sleeper its nice to have extra clearance. Did not notice the noise at all while laying on. It make a little crinkle and crunch getting on and off that is about it. Perfect night rest. Very Goat worthy product

      Comfortable, warm, but too noisy

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

      Bought this pad to use during warmer trips v.s. my xtherm (which was too warm for my current trips). I used it with a Corus HD quilt. It's cooler than the Xtherm, but still warm- I would suggest something different for 50+ degree nights. It's comfortable, but way too noisy. I'm a light sleeper and toss and turn. My wife thought I was exaggerating so I let her listen to it at home when I got back from my trip. She also thought it was too loud. I returned it.

      Nalgene bottle small

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

      Great packability and size. Nice and lightweight, durable and comfortable. It is a little loud, but for me I am a heavy sleeper so not an issue at all.

      Light & Comfortable

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

      It's super light and easy to pack into my backpack. It's easy to inflate quickly. It adds a some comfort to tent camping. It is a little noisy and a bit slick.

      Not to noisy for me.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Some say it's to noisy and some of my friend hate this pad because of it. I love it. It's warm light and comfortable. The noise does not bother me. Bought this pad for a backup because the pad I have is a few years old with a lot of miles on it. Still no holes or reason for concern. I just like having a extra.

      Too noisy for my tentmate

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

      I used this pad on one trip. It is *much* more comfortable than the Thermarest Z-Lite I've been using for years. The crinkling noises whenever I moved didn't bother me, but they drove my tentmate bonkers, so I had to return it. Back to the Z-Lite, at least for now.

      Good product great customer support

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Bought this specifically to coincide with a vintage 1980's Early Winters Bivy sac, 1st gen Gore Tex, and yes, it still performs do I! A needed component for a light-fast system.
      In my 50's now (old man),and have been using Therma-rest pads for decades. A time proven product that's consumer worthy.
      This Neo has a slick surface, top and bottom. It can be problematic on slopes and some shelter systems. I have added silicone dots to the bottom to prevent the pad from sliding and it works without adding weight. 🍷

      Take Care Of Yourself!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Buy the best for yourself. This is one of the best sleeping pads out there. Don't underestimate the significance of a good night sleep. You hike all day and you're tired. Lay down on this beautiful bed and catch some Zs. I love mine. I thought it might be a little to narrow... I'm staying on. It's a little crunchy but you'll get used to it. I going to buy another for my hiking partner. I'd recommend it. Happy trails and sweet dreams!

      Comfortable Sleep

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      The most comfortable sleeping pad I've ever slept on. Rolls up small, durable, warmer than I expected. I sleep more on this pad then I do my mattress. Perfect for any type of hiking. It takes a little getting used to the first couple times using it but after that you'll love it. Definitely Recommend

      Sleep like a baby

        This pad packs small and gives a lot of padding

        But Scott, they say it the noise is God-awful and is slippery? Why not discuss this or let Thermarest know about it so they can get on these problems -- or are they really problems? I know a lot of reviewers are not real campers, they live in luxury at home then cry outside, I get it. I mean most reviews I see on almost every product is enough to turn me off from purchasing, but per Thermarest, I have owned one of their pads for over 25 years now and it still does the job.

        Love This Pad

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Another killer pad from Therm-A-Rest. This pad is super light, rolls up super small, and is super comfortable.

        The mummy cut on this pad doesn't bother me like I thought it would and it helps in the weight savings. I also thought this pad would be paper thin, but I am confident that it will hold up.

        The pad is a bit noisy, but that doesn't bother wife hasn't complained about the noise either.

        If you are looking for one of the lightest pads on the market there is no need to look at any other ones.

        Light but noisy

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        It packs really small and light and does an adequate job providing cushion and insulation, but it was really slippery with my western mountaineering bag and made a ton of noise. I found it quite annoying.

        Practical Comfort`

          For how light and how small this pad compacts it is extremely comfortable. It inflates with just a couple handfuls of breaths and then your ready to drift into a deep backwoods snooze. I bought one for both me and my girlfriend for our double sleeping bag and they fit together great. Even when we are car camping we often times will bring these for the sake of convenience and ease.

          Now, what about the "noise" or "slippery" aspects? Seems most folks here are crying about the noise, etc??????? Either it is a "GREAT PAD" or the write ups are too good to be true? Which is it I wonder? One doesn't know what to believe these days.....

          HI, I want to know, when I buy this pad, is there anything to pack it into, and is there a pumo . if not, I want to know, where can I buy them, if you have some, please shere a link.
