Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XLite NXT Large
Introducing the XLite NXT, the latest version of the highly popular and likely the most common sleeping pad among lightweight hikers. The key parameter of the XLite NXT is its R-value of 4.5, an exceptionally high value considering the pad’s weight. This achievement is made possible by Therm-a-Rest’s patented Triangular Core Matrix™ structure and ThermaCapture™ heat-reflective technology.
The interior attachments have been updated in the new NXT model, significantly reducing the familiar rustling noise of previous versions. While some might miss the nostalgic sound reminiscent of epic adventures, your hiking buddy in the same tent might see the bright side of it!
The fabrics are chosen for their lightweight and durable qualities, featuring 30D rip HT Nylon on both the top and bottom of the mattress. The package includes not only the mattress itself but also a storage bag, a pump bag, and a repair kit.
If you’re pondering on the best air-filled and insulated sleeping pad for three-season hikes in the northern regions, while remaining incredibly light, the Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XLite NXT is the top choice. It keeps you warm even when the temperature dips below freezing, a scenario quite possible in early and late summer.
Filling the XLite NXT is a breeze, thanks to the WingLock™ valve, which is intuitive, reliable, and maximizes airflow in both directions. The valve’s flaps prevent air from escaping during inflation, providing comfort after a long day when you’re eagerly awaiting a good night’s sleep.

Our Tips: You can leave the pump bag at home and inflate the XLite with your own breath. Of course, blowing at the end of the day might feel tiresome, in which case, the pump bag becomes a handy addition to your backpack and doubles as a storage bag for items like clothes. Instead of folding and rolling, try folding the sleeping pad accordion-style against the backpack’s back panel. You can tuck flat objects like empty soft bottles or unused maps into the accordion folds for storage. If you use a camping quilt, leave the straps in place when packing the sleeping pad into your backpack, so they’re ready for use at the end of the day.
