At the end of last week the temperature dropped again and was in the low 20’s. Yesterday however it was +8 degrees. This really is a very strange winter!!
Now I have all the parts to my Thermarest cot, I wanted to sleep out and test it.
I also bought an unused second-hand Thermarest NeoAir Xlite from Sweden’s equivalent to Ebay to use in conjunction with the cot.
- Ultralight: Advanced fabrics and a tapered design make this the lightest 3-season backpacking air mattresses available, with no peer in its warmth-to-weight ratio.
- Warm: Patent-pending, reflective
In this patent-pending application, we vary the location and number of ThermaCapture layers within each NeoAir mattress to meet specific warmth targets. Combined with Triangular Core Matrix construction, a single ThermaCapture™ layer can boost warmth by up to 50% and creates the unmatched warmth-to-weight ratios offered by a NeoAir™ mattress.

Triangular Core Matrix™
Our most advanced design uses patent-pending technology to minimize heat loss with two stacked layers of triangular baffles, creating hundreds of individual cells in our warmest mattresses. Simultaneously this internal structure adds an unmatched level of stability to every NeoAir mattress.

I am very impressed with the NeoAir Xlite as it packs down small, is incredibly light, but is also thick and comfortable. It is however quite noisy (especially when it is really cold).
