Probably a little heavy fro you lightweight dudes and dudesses
I fell asleep in the middle of the video...
That's how comfy the Xtherm is, mate
Actually, come to think of it, that's a good ploy to get 'watch hours' up
Is that an old Prolite 3?
What on earth persuaded you to get one of those things ?
I can still hear it now: "You'll be fine Bluff, just stick your legs on your bag, that's what I do"... Mind you, it works well.
you were always a sucker for the sweet talk
You and you bleddy airline pillow with a straw...
Still have plenty
They do actually work....
In fact, I shall take one on my forthcoming trip
This got me checking the R value on the Neoair Xlite Womens, quite surprised how high it is.
I use it in winter with a 3mm barrier underlay underneath it. I still feel its better if i also put a sitmat under it where my hip rests when side sleeping, sometimes feel the cold at that pressure point.
Anyone know the R value of an original Neoair? (like 1st gen square corners)
The Venture is 2.2 - would it not be the same?
2.5 I think, I used mine in Scotland a couple of weeks ago, still one of my favourite mats
Found something that says it is 2.5 in old R value money.
So like the Neoair Xlite Regular is now 4.2 but it would have been 3.2 using old ratings. So maybe between 3-4 on new ratings.
Neoair Xlite Womens is 5.4 on new ratings, impressive.

One point to note is that testing of inflatable mats is carried out with it FULLY inflated, deflating a bit for comfort reduces the R value.
Also 'squeeze' points like the hips & shoulders will similarly reduce the R value locally. Like @el manana I like to slip the CCF sit mat under the X-lite at the hips to reduce this cold spot, it also makes a big difference when sitting up on the same spot.
I've noticed my mats are slightly warmer since they upped the stated R value....
Since Brexit mine have suffered from inflation...
Better than deflation...
I have an original full length 1.25 inch thick thermarest and a 3/4 length 3/4 inch thick "lightweight" one. These are pre R values, anyone have any idea what their R value could be?
i am beginning to resent all those photos of your- dog----i feel she looks more intelligent than me----and better looking--------------back to subject-----30 year old??-----10 mm rollmat r number unknown but doesn t seem to melt much snow underneath so i presume its working----reliable and warm
If Petra had opposable thumbs to switch on the camera, she'd leave me at home...
