Therm-a-Rest has boosted its best-selling NeoAir XLite™ Nxt sleeping pad with a serious upgrade this season, dialing up the comfort and down the noise.

NeoAir XLite™ NXT improves on its predecessor – already renowned for being an exceptional all-season ultralight air sleeping pad – by refining the way its innovative design (Triangular Core Matrix™) integrates with its warmth-generating technology (ThermaCapture™) to drop the crinkly noise (also something it was well known for) down by a whopping 83%.


The NeoAir XLite™ NXT sleeping pad is easy to inflate and deflate using the innovative WingLock™ Valve. This valve also makes it easy to let out air as needed to make those comfort-critical micro-adjustments when you’re laying down on the pad.

This latest model also boasts a comfier profile, adding half an inch to now measure in at three inches (7.6 cm) thick, but at no cost to weight (12.5 ounces/354 grams for the regular size). A solid 4.5 R-value is ideal for year-round temps and it packs down to the size of a one-liter bottle. Think of all the solid sleep you’ll be getting in the wilds with that extra quiet and comfort! Four size options available (regular short, regular, regular wide, and large). Pump sack, stuff sack and field repair kit included.
