    Well, I went ahead and ordered a regular while I could use the 20 percent off code. Hopefully it will live up to the hype.

    These NeoAir pads are selling like Tickle-Me-Elmo dolls :)

    I ordered one online at REI.com and had it delivered to the Seattle store. Who knows when it will get there, but I was able to get my 20% off. My wife tried to get a Medium (5'6") but the website says "unavailable". Not "backorder", but "unavailable" (which means, instead of "we'll get one to you as soon as we get one in the store", it is "please don't even talk to us about that yet"). Oh well, she used her 20% off on a cheaper item (winter gators).

    I didn't even realize that REI had them in yet… When I called the 800 number, they told me that they're completely out of stock, and the next shipment on backorder is spoken for as well. :( She said they might start taking backorders again in a few weeks, and watching the website was the best way to go.

    Looks like my dividend is going to stay unspent for a little while longer…

    I got the same response yesterday. Whats that they say about patience…its a virtue or something.

    They were out of all the sizes except the small when I called them. They weren't on their site but they were in their warehouse inventory for the smalls. I called nearly when they opened the lines saturday morning and secured one of the 4 small pads left. Can't wait till friday!

    Just got the same news over the phone: backorder shipment already sold out. She also did mention that REI's anniversary sale is later in Spring (May?) with a 20% off one item coupon, which should give enough time for the early reviews to arrive, while still being early enough to use for the backpacking season. I can still use my dividend then… assuming they are in stock in May.

    My local REI told me that the Seattle store was the only store that has them in stock. I had to call them and order directly from the Seattle store. That was the only way I could take advantage of the 20 percent discount. They had another 7 available, so if you call today you might still be able to get one. I had to pay $10 for shipping but I still saved an additional $20. Here is the store number. The discount expires today, by the way.

    "My local REI told me that the Seattle store was the only store that has them in stock. I had to call them and order directly from the Seattle store."

    that's odd, when i called the seattle store on friday they told me they didn't have any… I called them since i was driving through seattle that day and generally the seattle store has everything… but called their 800# and they found it via a part number and sold it to me… anxiously waiting till mine arrives at my local REI.

    They were still boxed up in the back, so they must have gotten them in on Saturday.

    Just wondering if anyone has actually weighed these pads to check whether the specs are accurate? Given the price, you would hope so. But it wouldn't surprise me to hear they were often 1-2oz over spec.

    Anyone had the pleasure of weighing one?

    Me too, What's up with that? I sent them an email asking why, and haven't received an answer yet.

    UPDATE : I got a response back from REI that says they expect to receive them approximately April 24, 2009.

    Mine weighs 395g, which is 15g under spec. Blows up nearly flat unlike the big ridges in the vertical baffled inflatables.

    I like a firm mattress which is what you get when fully inflated. Side position works well with only a little deflection to support the hips but no where close to touching ground. If you like a soft mattress and want to sleep on your side you might have problems.

    The fabric is very sticky which should minimize sliding. The fabric is definitely not bomber, so must be dealt with carefully. It's much stronger than 1.3 sil for sure.

    The only thing that is not readily obvious is the insulating factor. For that I need field tests. I can't wait!

    I ordered a large from Moosejaw and they are predicting a 4/6 ship on all sizes. I was able to use Moosejaw's coupon code 206 for 20% off, which is tied to an honor system clothing donation to Purple Heart.

    It is good to see something flying off the shelves these days!

    First report on the Neo Air that I know of at BackpackGear Test (http://www.backpackgeartest.org/newreviews.php)
    Not a real test, just initial comments but useful to check out the real measurements.

    Moosejaw just called to tell me they are pushing back my order until May 1. I ordered a large, so not sure about the other sizes.

    Nathan – I received this message from REI after I posted this morning

    "The Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Sleeping Pad – Medium has an estimated arrival date to our warehouse of April 24, 2009. Please keep in mind that this is an estimated time frame and is subject to change. Once the item is received and processed, then your order will be filled."

    A couple of days ago I got the same message from REI. Today I got a message that it had shipped. Yes I ordered from 2 places (see my for sale post). But this was for a regular pad.

    I got mine a couple days ago. It's a small and weights 8.9 oz on my scale. I like what I see so far.

    It works great in my Big Agness 5.4 oz SL Cyclone Chair Kit!! I like it much better than the BA Clearview Air Pad (11 oz) I've been using. It weights less and fits better. The material is nicer too.
