Thermarest NeoAir X-Therm
As part of our article on Best Lightweight Inflatable Sleeping Pads, ProLite Gear reviews the Thermarest NeoAir X-Therm.
The Thermarest NeoAir X-Therm was given the Premium Performance Award due to its superior Warmth-To-Weight ratio. Weighing just 15 ounces(430 grams) the NeoAir X-Therm has a r-Value of 5.7. Nothing else comes close to providing this level of thermal resistance at this weight. The Thermarest NeoAir X-Therm achieves this while only being 2.5 inches thick.
To reduce the effects of convection cooling Thermarest engineered over 100 individual cells within the pad, greatly reducing the size of individual air spaces within the pad, and the convection currents that occur in each cell. This is referred to as their Triangular Core Matrix™.
The Thermarest NeoAir X-Therm also uses Reflective ThermaCapture™ technology to reflect the infrared rays emitted by the body back to the users, resulting in a warmer, more thermally efficient sleeping pad.
