If you want to branch out from the air/foam construction- and therefore get a warmer, more comfortable and lighter pad- consider a NeoAir. The two most noteworthy of the four models are the NeoAir Xlite, a minimalists dream come true. The XLite weighs 12 oz., packs to one liter, and is, by most accounts, considerably warmer than the ProLite. For winter use, opt for the warmer and slightly heavier NeoAir XTherm. Weighing less and packing smaller than the ProLite, the XTherm is the ultimate all-purpose all-season sleeping pad.
For those who spend less time backpacking and more time base and car camping opt for the Nemo Astro Insulated, a cheaper and slightly more comfortable alternative to the expensive and fancy abovementioned NeoAirs.
Go for a closed cell pad if you need something really durable or are on a budget. We recommend the Z Lite SOL if space is a concern and the Ridge Rest SOLite if its not. Both pads weigh only 14 ounces.
The ProLite has been updated to include a new fabric and foam. Keep reading to hear from Therm-A-Rest about the new upgrades that have been made to this pad!
