To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I expected it to pack smaller, i.e. the bag it came with to be smaller. It leaves a lot of room and even though it can be rolled up smaller, it expands to the size of the bag of course. All in all I really like this because I like to travel light and pack tight, but for that kind of money I expected the bag to not just be an afterthought. I bought one before in the US and it came with a bag that fit this mattress just right. It's too expensive.
Che dire è veramente un materassino fantastico! Largo ,comodo e sopratutto leggero e poco ingombrante , ottima insolazione dal terreno di circa 4 gradi .L’ho testo i primi di ottobre in un bivacco a circa 2 600 mt con temperatura circa di 0 gradi e devo dire che mi ha isolato benissimo dalla roccia fredda . L’unica pecca è il prezzo è un po’ caro ,però è anche vero che la comodità si paga.
First, I've invested in several Thermarests over the years. Purchased 5 Prolite Plus pads. No problems and nice but a little bulky in pack and too thin for side sleeping. Last one had failed valve. It was "too old" to repair in warranty even though my boys only used them a couple times. It was stored in cool dry place with valve open on its side and virtually new! The Neoair is a mixed review. Excellent for side sleeping due to increased thickness. Easy to inflate with bladder bag but the Prolite needed nothing! It would inflate on it's own. The Neoair's biggest asset is that it packs down very small. Very small! A crucial advantage for backpacking. It's biggest negative is it's really, really loud when you move, like sleeping on cellophane. Probably contains cellophane. On the whole, I'm not so sure I want to keep it. I canoe explore now-a-days and it isn't as necessary for such small packing. Going to have to think about it awhile before the return date arrives.
It is an investment, but this is worth it if you are camping below 45 degrees. I am 5'6'' and 135lbs and this fits me with an inch or two to spare on either end. It was most important to me to save weight as well as be warm and that is exactly what I got. The design is narrow, so if you sprawl out, I would suggest something bigger or wider. I am back sleeper however I do move to my side in a tent and this pad supports the body very well. Its been backcountry camping about 15 times and has held up thus far but only 6 months old. Durability is good so far, but admittedly, because of the cost, I treat it more delicately than say other camping supplies.
This is a great, lightweight, and very compact inflatable sleeping pad for backpacking.
The pad comes with a carrying sack, a patching kit for small tears or holes, and an airtight bag for inflating the mattress if you don’t want to use your breath. All of those things can roll up and be stuffed into the sack, which takes up very little space in a pack.
The valve for inflating and deflating the pad is very easy to use once you understand the mechanics of it, and it’s great that it can be inflated without releasing air, saving you some breaths. But if you’ve never used that style of valve, take a quick read through the instructions to make sure you’re turning the correct parts in the correct direction.
I have two minor complaints, but they would not stop me from purchasing a second one of these pads (which I have, in fact, already done). The length of the pad works well and as expected from the item description, but the width is fairly narrow. If you are used to sleeping with arms or legs stretched out at all, you should expect that they will not fit on the pad. The other minor complaint is that the pad is a little noisy, so if you’re sharing a tent with light sleepers, they may wake up if you toss and turn.
I am quite satisfied with sleeping comfort and warmth this pad provides to date (have not yet used below freezing). I purchased a 25 inch pad given that I am a side sleeper that moves around a lot. The 20 inch pads do not prevent me from sliding off. The only issue is the excessive noise it makes when moving around as others have complained about likewise. I feel sorry for those sleeping nearby. The fabric is thin and probably will be an issue at some point; thus I make sure it has a debris free bedding.
I bought it for my backpacking trip next year. It’s super lightweight and packs small. It’s fairly comfortable but does crinkle a little. Holds air well for several days. I’m a side sleeper but it held up well. Blowing up takes a bit but you don’t get light headed and if you watch the online tutorial it’s pretty easy. I would highly recommend the wide
