I’ve only ever used one other pad that I borrowed and slept horribly. I actually did pretty well with this one, esp sleeping on the forest floor, and not on hard wood floor of an AT shelter. I am a side sleeper with wide hips so it’s important that I don’t hit the ground. I didn’t find it noisy when it was inflated ALL the way. The little mini pump I also bought (old model not available on backcountry) is worth its weight in gold. Looking forward to getting more nights on this one.

I have used a Therm-A-Rest ProLite for years and I love it but wanted a little more warmth and cushion. This pad is pretty narrow, though I would have handled that. The noise with every little movement is what drove me to send it back. I am a heavy sleeper but there is no way I could have slept through the crunching sounds that this pad makes. Also, the valve was dysfunctional. I emailed Therm-A-Rest back in May when I received this pad. I anticipated a delay due to COVID but it is now September and have still not heard back from them. Had I loved the pad, I would have tried to reach out again but there are too many strikes against it for me to put forth the effort.

I did hours of research on the best sleeping pad and even spoke with a gear head recommending this pad. I have used this about three times since I bought it in February. WORST EVER. Easy to slip off of it, doesn’t stay inflated, and is so loud like opening a bag of chips every time you move. So just imagine dead silence in nature then waking your partner up in the middle of the night because you have to potty. You can get klymit v on amazon for $50 and not $100 for this crappy pad. Can’t return it because it’s been over 30 days.

Pros Lightweight, small size ideal for backpacking Cons Noisy, uncomfortable, narrow I bought this pad because it is highly rated on other websites. Once it arrived, I immediately tested it out on my living room floor. The first thing I noticed was how noisy it was. Every movement sounded like someone crinkling a tarp in my ear. I could live with some noise, but more importantly, it was incredibly uncomfortable. I released some air ... filled it up more ... no luck. My last resort, I tried it with my sleeping bag, hoping my initial instincts were wrong. Nope. It was worse with my sleeping bag. I felt like I was going to slip right off with every movement. Turns out, this is just an incredibly uncomfortable, noisy, and expensive sleeping pad. You'd be better off saving the cash and sleeping on the ground.

Lightweight, insulating, but very narrow

I've tried to sleep on this pad several times, and every time I lay down on it, I feel like I'm on an inner tube that's trying to bounce me off of it. I chalk it up to me having very broad shoulders and a broad torso, and this pad being too narrow for me. Ultimately I sleep better directly on the ground (assuming it's not too cold). The pad is very lightweight material and does a great job of insulating from the ground, but I would not recommend this if any part of you is wider or broader than average. The tech specs say it's 20" wide. There are other pads that come in at 23" wide, and those are significantly more comfortable for me. The ounces saved by shaving off the width is not justified for me.

Wrong Valve from backcountry! Good pad

Let me start by saying the pad is great. However, I purchased this from Backcountry instead of directly from Therm -a-rest and was looking forward to upgrading to the new Winglock valve with one way air flow. Unfortunately, even though Backcountry's website has it listed as having the new Winglock valve, the one I received was the old model! Beware of this false advertising and buy directly from Therm-a-rest!

Just send it back to them and they’ll send you a new one. These review ratings are for people looking to assess the quality of the product not to know what kind of experience you’ve had with backcountry. You’re not helping anyone by posting a mad review directed at backcountry here. I’m not affiliated with backcountry or thermarest but I would appreciate if you changed your review because my initial impression of this pad having only 3 stars was that something must be wrong with this model and I had to spend my time reading your upset review about a shipment mistake to determine there is nothing wrong with this pad and only your experience with BC. Please change this and save other people’s time.

Second what Ahdom has said. Reach out to Customer Service or leave a review about Backcountry.

A Great Pad get Better!

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

Therm-a-Rest has done a really great job updating the classic that we all know and love in the neoair xlite. The new wide version of this pad is something that bigger guys like myself have been waiting for, for some time now. No longer do my arms fall to the side when I am sleeping on my back. The 25 inches is more than enough room to give me a great night sleep making an already great pad even better. Also it should be noted that the new winglock valve really makes the inflation experience with the pad a lot more tedious by allowing you to remove your mouth completely from the valve to take a break without all the air rushing back out. Deflating the pad is much bigger with the new larger opening of the valve as well. Also, it should be noted that the R-Value of the pad has increased with the latest iteration of the pad. Now I'm unsure if there is new tech in the pad making it sleep warmer or if the new R-Value standardization benefited the pad. Overall the new updated neo air is worth the upgrade if you are someone who spends extended periods of time in the backcountry when every ounce counts. All hail the king!

I didn’t realize they make this in regular wide. Can I get help changing my order? Thanks Glen
