    Winter camping essential.

    Designed for winter camping, the Therm-A-Rest NeoAir XTherm MAX Sleeping Pad is a rectangular version of the award-winning XTherm pad that provides extra coverage for extreme temps and campers with wider torsos. This lightweight pad insulates and cushions you from the hard, frigid ground below without tacking on the weight or bulk normally found in winter-worthy sleeping pads.

    Ripstop nylon on the bottom holds up in 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 insulate and reflect heat back to your body to keep the cold ground from sucking away all your precious heat. A stuff sack keeps it conveniently tucked away when you're not sleeping on it, and an included repair kit lets you fix any tears on the fly.

    Very comfy but one popped immediately.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Very warm comfy thick pad. Bought two, with A down comforter coupler. Used them for three nights and one popped. Patched it onsite then still had hole in it. Was forced to go to REI in between treks and had to buy another one to finish out adventures. Overall nice thick and lite but be prepared for it falling apart. Hopefully with extreme carefulness we can use these for A very long time.

    warm and comfortable

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought this after a bad experience freezing my butt off in the High Sierra. My first night was a rainy high 30s night in Yosemite Valley. Combined with my quilt from Mid-Atlantic Mountain Works, I was very comfortable. I did not even bother to cinch the quilt up all the way. The second night was 10 degrees warmer and I had to take off my long johns and socks. Pretty sure being cold will never be a problem.

    Noise? I barely notice. How full to fill? Seems better fully inflated, but is thick enough to use less inflated for a softer feel. How long to blow up with supplied stuff sack? 3-4 min and 7-8 sacks of air, plus a few puffs by mouth. It helps to use your free hand to push out the sides of the sack before giving it a quick cinch to hold in the air. Takes practice to capture maximum air. How long to deflate and stow? About 5 min. I unscrew the valve while still lying on the mat and let my body weight do the work. I then roll it up once quickly without folding it to expel most of the air. Next I fold it just in half to roll it up. It still fits in the sack and there's enough room for my blow-up pillow and the air sack. I use rubber bands to hold the pad rolled up tight. This is a better shape for my pack. I like the width, but don't need the extra length - would be great if they made a wide/regular.

    Very noisy

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

    It's great - weighs nothing, warm, except that every tiny movement generates an avalanche of noises. I was afraid even to breath. Very distracting. We need one more pad, and I am definitely searching for something by a different manufacturer.

    Warm But Loud

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Yes, "loud". First off, it's the warmest pad I've ever slept on. It truly is. Spent 2 nights in Tucson Mtn Park in early Feb. and it gets COLD at night in the SW no matter what time of year. This pad REALLY cuts the mustard when it comes to warmth. However, I can hear every slightest move I make as the pad sounds like crinkling aluminum foil when I so much as turn my head. Other than the noise, I highly recommend it if warmth is priority 1.

    meets my expectation but quality issue

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

    i got the prod. for my ice fall climbing in Asia W5~6, extreme condition. temp i need for proper freezing is 0F. Still waiting for the firm ice(global warming??), went on a back packing to test my gears, and used the pad for the first time, right out of the box. temp. was from 10~20F. At first, the performance of the pad, in combination with upto 0F sleeping bag was excellent, exactly what i expected from the Xtherm, highly pleased, however, there was leak(s) from the brand new pad, woke up few times to refill the air at nigh, struggled, and finally had to lit my reactor to stay warm, there goes my sleep. Quality control issue here. Extreme outdoor products must work and meet the expectation i feel, that why i pay the extra premium. I strongly recommend you to check the leak b/f you leave home. the way to test; is fill the pad, let the pad stand against a wall over a day, if there's a leak it will collapse the next day. if you find the leak, repair otherwise, you know what's coming...
    Backcountry will let me patch and use the pad for this trip(if repair is possible, if not, i got to buy another one in the mean time), and they will refund or replace the pad when I'm back to the States.

    To sum up; reliable backcountry customer service, problematic Thermarest quality control, which is disappointing, and there 's no world warranty on Thermarest products. there'll be a repair cost outside the US.

    meets my expectation but quality issue

    so comfy you'll forget it's 20 degrees

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Used this for a 4 day winter trip down Coyote gulch. Ground was generally frozen absolutely solid, but this pad kept me happily warm. Used it in a big agnes bag that requires the sleeping pad for bottom insulation. A little pricey, but that extra comfort and warmth was so worth it.

    I love this product. It is SO comfy and is perfect for backpacking because it is compact. It is a firm air mattress and is even comfy sleeping on my side.

    What is the weight of regular versus large one
