neoair topo luxe review

The Therm-A-Rest NeoAir Topo Luxe Sleeping Pad is the epitome of luxury camping comfort. It's lightweight and compact enough for backpacking, but provides one of the thickest camping mattresses on the market to ensure a comfortable night of sleep.

At 4-inches thick, the Topo is Therm-A-Rest's thickest backpacking-capable 'NeoAir' sleeping pad ever. It's also incredibly comfy, thanks to Therm-A-Rest's Triangular Core Matrix internal baffle system. Those small ridges create a foundation that keeps warm air next to your body and cold air away. That means you'll never bottom out on rocks and roots like you might on other, thinner camping mats.

Despite the extra thickness and R-Value, the Topo still packs down small before inflating for a super lightweight and compact package. And the patented TwinLock valves make it lightning-fast to inflate and deflate, allowing you to enjoy your adventures without any aches or soreness from lugging around a heavy camp mattress.

The Topo uses a 50D knit exterior fabric that feels soft against bare skin and is durable enough to withstand a stray thorn puncturing the pad. But, if you want to be extra safe, Therm-A-Rest includes a patch kit just in case. To inflate, you'll need a NeoAir Micro Pump, which weighs only 2.3 oz and fits in the stuff sack with your pad or brain of your pack, making it easy to grab and use when you need it. It's a little heavier than foam pumps, but it saves you the effort and stress of blowing up your mattress with your lungs.
