Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Xtherm NXT Sleeping Pad Review
Durable – We’ve always been very impressed with the durability of the Xtherm, and this newest iteration doesn’t disappoint either. A key to its longevity is the ultra-thick bottom layer which is constructed with a 70D nylon fabric. We’ve taken the Xtherm over hundreds of miles through the Sonoran Desert where cacti abound, and we’ve slept directly on a bed of lava rocks with it in the Central Oregon Cascades. And we can say with confidence that this pad is built to last.
But of course, all air pads have their limits, and – whether by bad luck or hard use – eventually you’ll likely need to repair your pad. Luckily, it’s easy and cheap to replace the WingLock Valve on the XTherm should it fail to work at some point down the line, and this pad also comes with a patch kit for repairing unexpected punctures in the field.
