Sleep More, Huff-and-Puff Less with Therm-a-Rest


The last thing you need after a long day of paddling or trekking is to spend 10 minutes struggling to inflate your air mattress in the dark before you pass out. Fortunately the innovative folk at Therm-a-Rest have come up with the NeoAir XLite MAX SV mattress, new this year.

This new technology allows you to pull in surrounding air while you inflate, amplifying your breath. Cool. Fewer minutes huffing and puffing means more minutes sleeping.

Triangular Core Matrix construction and reflective ThermaCapture barrier technologies offer stability, warmth and comfort. And when it’s time to hit the trail or river, the auto-reversing valve deflates the mattress almost instantly. Ultralight and low-bulk materials make the mattress super compact—as packable as a water bottle. We like.
