At Therm-a-Rest, we understand there are different strokes for different outdoor folks. Some like it hot, while others like it cold, and some prefer going ultra-light, while others would rather pack on the pounds for the extra cushion. That’s why we’ve designed three different SpeedValve mattresses. After all, we want everyone to experience the fastest way to feel at home in the outdoors … regardless of how you camp.

Here’s what you need to know to decide which SpeedValve mattress will best fit your camping needs.

Do you roll up to the campground in your overstuffed Suby, ready to set-up a plush basecamp for a weekend of outdoor adventure? Maybe you’ve got a sick mountain bike in tow, and you plan to shred the loam all day and then ride back to camp for a relaxing evening under the stars. Or perhaps your basecamp sits next to a crag, and you want to crank some rock climbs for a few hours each day before heading back to a cozy camp.

No matter what your preferred method of fun may be, if you’re toting your mattress by car to your camp, then the NeoAir Camper SV is the SpeedValve mattress for you. Thick and ultra-supportive, the Camper SV is a luxurious outdoor bed with 3 inches of loft that inflates and deflates at mind-blowing speeds thanks to the SpeedValve.

NeoAir® Trekker™ SV


Are you a multi-sporting outdoor fiend who loves to change things up from one trip to the next? Perhaps you were camping at a music festival last week, but this weekend you’re heading out for a solo, two-day vision quest into the backcountry. If so, we think the NeoAir Trekker SV is the perfect mattress for you.

The Trekker SV is rugged enough for extended basecamping adventures yet light enough for short backpacking forays into the backcountry. With three-season warmth and 2.5 inches of loft, the Trekker is the most versatile SpeedValve mattress available … making it the ideal choice for those who love to switch it up, and have a need for speed.

NeoAir® XLite™ Max SV


Still aiming to complete the PCT this summer? Or are you gearing up for a self-supported, bike-packing odyssey across the U.S.? If you’re planning audacious adventures where fast and light is the name of the game, then the NeoAir XLite Max SV is the SpeedValve mattress for you.

The XLite Max SV packs down to the size of a water bottle. But don’t let its size fool you. This high-tech mattress sports three-season warmth and inflates to 2.5 inches of cushy comfort. With the SpeedValve gracing this featherweight mattress, this is the perfect adventure bed for those who like it fast!
