    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.

    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 well...as 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. 🍷
    Cheers

    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

    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 me....my 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.

      Stupid light!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I bought this a couple years ago primarily for super light backpacking adventures. It hasn't disappointed. As you can see from the picture it worked as a great snow pit bench padding. It inflates and deflates pretty easy. It is "crunchy" but the lightweight and ease of use outweigh the noise it makes. If you have any questions feel free to hit me up!

      Stupid light!

      Get some sleep!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      After a summer of hiking I realized no one piece of gear can be perfect. But some have features that outweigh the poor ones. I used this pad on my Pacific Crest Trail thru-hike. So 177 nights should be sufficient testing. I found this pad to be very comfortable and very warm, too warm at times. Obviously being inflatable, I was able to adjust the firmness of the pad pretty easily. My only negative comments to make are about the time it takes to inflate/deflate and the noise. It make a bit of noise with the interior baffle material Cascade Designs went with but with that set aside the warmth, comfort and weight advantages of this pad are superior I think. I never once disliked using this pad, packing it or sleeping on it. The material can be fragile if you are not careful, so don't use it right on the ground for napping or wear abrasive clothing while sleeping on it (like or studded punk rock denim jackets.) But overall I had one leak which patched well over 6 months/177days/2,650 miles. I'll take it.

      Light weight and packs well

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

      I have never really bothered with sleeping pads because of the space they take up. This one is different. I have only taken it on a few trips (3 or 4 trips of 3-5 days each) but so far no signs of wear. You can squeeze all the air out of it and it packs up pretty small. This will be something I keep in my pack.

      Excellent Light Weight Sleeping Pad

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

      Initially I bought the Sea to Summit Comfort Plus sleeping pad based on the backpacking.com review. Although it was a good pad, I bought the NeoAir XLite on sale in a large. I inflated both pads and tried them out side by side. The NeoAir XLite was larger, thicker, lighter, and had an higher R-Value. It was ultimately more comfortable as well. The only two downsides are that the Sea to Summit Comfort Plus packed down to a smaller volume, but not by much, the XLite took quite a few more breaths to blow it up, and Comfort Plus has two chambers for redundancy. I ultimately returned the Sea to Summit Comfort Plus and kept the NeoAir XLite. I had the chance to use this on a recent trip to the northern 30 miles of the SHT. The nights got down to the low 50's and upper 40's. The pad kept me warm and comfortable. I used it in combination with an Enlightened Equipment 20 degreee Revelation Quilt. Many review complained about the pad being noisy when you shift around at night. I can assure you that this pad is more noisy than any others I have used and I shift around a lot in my sleep. I was comfortable on my side, my back, and my stomach. I highly recommend this pad.

      More durable than I was lead to believe

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This pad is definitely thin and light, but after countless nights spent on it, even at campgrounds with sticks, rocks, and broken glass, I have yet to pop this pad. All you have to do it clean the area some and you're good. It definitely takes many breaths to air it up. I have used it down to 25 degrees and I feel like that was the limit for me. The noise doesn't bother me or any tent mates either, and I am far from being a deep sleeper. I have the large and it packs down super small. I am 6'2 and have about 4 inches of extra room on the pad, and plenty of width. I love the extra width of the large. My biggest complaint is that , since I'm a side sleeper, it makes my arm go to sleep and wakes me up. There isn't a lot of give and it makes it somewhat uncomfortable when sleeping on my side. I feel that the weight and space savings make it worth while though. Most of my friends bought a x-lite after I did. They loved the packability. There aren't too many pads out there that pack so small and have that high of an R-value. Definitely a hard value to beat!

      I am also a side sleeper. Have you tried letting some air out to make it a little bit softer and therefore having more 'give' for your arm? I have had this experience with all mattresses I own. I used to fill them up to the max and learned that I might as well sleep on the floor, except for the pillow. So, nowadays I pretty much fill them, I lay on my side and let the air out a bit at a time until I 'feel the give' that I get with my home mattress.

      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.
