Besides its price tag, the XTherm's primary drawbacks are its edges, which collapse slightly when weighted, and the crinkly noise its internal baffles can make when you camp on hard surfaces (not on snow). On the whole, the XTherm is the ultimate sleeping pad for multi-day mobile trips in any condition. We highly recommend it.
If you are 5' 6" or under check out our Women's Sleeping Pad. If comfort is top priority get yourself a super luxurious Car Camping Mattress.
We're currently testing the new Therm-A-Rest NeoAir XTherm! Look for a new review of the XTherm in the beginning of August!
