Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Trekker Regular (2014)

There really isn’t a lot to dislike about the Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Trekker Regular. It’s lightweight (512g), fits into a barely noticeable 20x10cm stuffsack, and is so comfortable it almost feels like a portable bed. Light sleepers may be put off by the crinkling sound it generates if you move around in the night, but most people would never notice it. When inflated the Trekker feels really thick, so it keeps you well away from the cold floor and means you can’t feel any bumps through the mat. It has a simple screw valve that you puff into to inflate – which takes less than a minute – and it comes with a small repair kit to help fix minor punctures. All in all, the Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Trekker Regular is a simple but extremely effective sleeping mat.
