The Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Camper SV is one of the most comfortable compact inflatable sleeping pads we tested. Its rectangular shape combined with three inches of cushion make it a fantastic choice for those that value comfort over weight savings. Conveniently, the pad is also among the most durable of the inflatable variety and it's priced relatively affordably. The NeoAir Camper sits squarely between a lightweight inflatable pad well-suited to backpacking and an ultra-luxurious car camping pad. We recommend the NeoAir Camper if you want one pad to do both activities and don't mind carrying some extra weight.
If you'd like to save three ounces, we'd recommend the Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Venture, which is very comparable to the Camper. The Venture is $30 cheaper and nearly as warm. Our testers enjoyed sleeping on both of these pads. Also consider a size large Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XLite, which is lighter, more compact, and nearly as comfortable as the Camper in size large.
The NeoAir Camper has been updated into the NeoAir Camper SV, equipped with Therma-a-Rest's SpeedValve technology. Read on to learn about the updates!
