/ Thermarest Neoair Xtherm Noise
I've heard they are very noisy? Seems daft to me to have a sleeping mat that might wake you up?!
Any experiences shared would be great before I spend £130 on a crisp packet!!
I find it barely noticeable in mine, I think it was a much bigger issue with the original neoair.
Once you are on them there is no noise as the Pressure Is firm, only when you touch them in the shop. So comfy! no regrets here.
me nor partner notice noise.
Are you using it for winter camping? If not i have an expel syn mat ultralight which i would recommend, much cheaper that the neo air mats, makes little noise and is very comfy and packs as small.
exped wins. ive slept on one straight onto ground at -23 and no cold gets thru.
xtherm is still a good thing - just not as good. what swayed me was contingency: if punctured id rather a 1mm of squashed down under me than 0.5mm of crisp packet.
two downsides to the exped: needs the bag to inflate which isnt fun in a cramped bivvy.
and the feelings of pity for tent mates who dont have one. but it soon passes as you drift off...
Sold. Where can I get one? Any good offers around at the moment? Any space/weight saving in my bag as a result of replacing my current full length Thermarest style inflating mat will be great.
(Sorry for the thread hijack!)
I have an Exped Downmat mahoosive mat which is great but a bit on the heavy side and i'm looking to save weight and space in my pack.
I have only used my exped mat down to just below freezing and it was more than warm enough, planning on using it snowholing too. Not sure what it r rating is though. Only had it for 6 months but the pack size is amazing, very quick to get up and down, very light.
Not any more - they come with an integral pump.
