NeoAir® Venture

Updated for 2017: Durable, light and packable mattress for essential backpacking warmth.

Our patent-pending WaveCore construction allows the NeoAir Venture WV air mattress to offer reliable quality, performance and value for recreational campers and backpackers. Our unique technology creates over one hundred insulating cells, effectively doubling the warmth of uninsulated air mattresses without the bulk, added weight or long-term durability concerns of down or synthetic fills. The Venture WV does all this with impressively low weight and the superior stability that only a Therm-a-Rest mattress can deliver. This year we added the Regular Wide size for people looking for extra width without the length. Stuff sack and repair kit included.

Documents and Instructions

Click here to download the Universal Therm-a-Rest Mattress Repair Instructions, including how to locate leaks and make repairs in the field or at home on any mattress model.

If you have further questions about repair or warranty, or would like to send your mattress to us for repair. In the U.S., please contact our Customer Service department at 1-800-531-9531. For worldwide service and repair contact information, please click here.

Should you find yourself without access to Therm-a-Rest Repair Kits, repairs can also be made using items commonly found at most outdoor gear shops. (Remember that for maximum effectiveness, ALL of the below repairs should begin with a clean and dry mattress. An alcohol swab is an ideal cleaner that dries fast.)

  • Small leaks not requiring a patch: A urethane-based glue should be used. Some popular brands are SeamGrip® and AquaSeal. Apply a small dab, large enough to completely seal the hole, and allow 24 hours for drying. If your mattress fabric is relatively smooth like the NeoAir or Trail mattresses, peel-and-stick bicycle tube patch kits are an option offering instant repair.
  • Larger holes and tears: All mattresses can be repaired with a self-adhesive fabric patch—like those used to repair jackets and tents. These are commonly found in outdoor gear shops. Cut the patch in a circle to generously cover the hole. Apply a small amount of urethane-based glue to the back of the patch and the area to be covered on the mattress. Apply patch and press firmly. Wipe away excess glue from edges and allow 24 hours to dry.

If you’re not comfortable making the repair yourself and have some time before your next trip, call our service department at 1-800-531-9531 for instructions on sending your mattress back for repair.

Yes. A Therm-a-Rest Valve Replacement Kit will replace all metal and plastic mattress valves. Instructions for the kit can be found here.

Roll the mattress up to force the water out of the open valve. If there is a lot of water, you may have to do this several times. Hang the mattress upside down with the valve open in a warm, dry place. It will take about three days for the mattress to dry out.

Regular cleaning will extend the life of your mattress, especially if you sleep in direct contact with its surface.

Do not put your mattress in the washing machine. Cleaning with a hose or in a bathtub is best. Do not forget to close the valve while washing. For general cleaning, a quick scrubbing with Formula 409®, BioClean All-Purpose Cleaner, or other general household cleaner is best.

For tree sap, spot clean with a cotton rag soaked in rubbing alcohol. This will take some work and sap will likely leave a stain. However, a dusting with talc or baby powder when you are done should eliminate any residual stickiness.

Very comfortable
I bought this over one year ago, and spent every night for 10 month on it. Great tough, comfortable, air mat. Still use it every time I go camping, very little signs of wear, compact and light when packed up for such a strong matteress.

Pretty darn good for the price..
I bought one of these as I am now older and not sure how well I'll sleep on the old 3/4 inch self inflating thermarest, and boy what a great decision, this mat is amazing.. Warm, comfy and light!, though I blew it up a little to much the first time.. I liked it so much, I decided to buy a second one for my 11 year old daughter, not sure if it came with a hole or developed one, but it got pretty low after 2 hours, so that kinda sucked.. After a thorough searching, I found a little pin hole, and plugged it with tear aid tape, so ready to go for next time.. If there is one thing I don't like, it is the dark color making it so much harder to find the hole, it would be sweet if there was away to show where the hole was.. Not quite as rugged as the originals, but so much lighter and packable.. Thanks for the great product!

Sleep like a baby, tonight!
Before buying NeoAir Venture WV I was using 3.2 cm thick sleeping mattress and I did not sleep well. Turning around all night, looking for comfortable position. Changing to this 5 cm beast made a major differnece. I can sleep on the back or on the side without a problem and wake up in the morning like a new person :) I guess this NeoAir is meant to use inside a tent or on smooth surface, since outer materials do not look as hard and durable as on Thermarest Prolite for example. So if you use it inside tent, as I do, I think it makes really good mattress, for a reasonable price.
