I’m a big fan of most Therm-a-rest products, and have been a loyal customer for years, but this product just isn’t as great as some of the ones in the past — but I haven’t found much else I prefer, either. My biggest complaint is with the shape. The tapered design saves weight, but I think it does so at the expense of comfort and usability. The rectangle design when this originally came out as the Neo Air in 2010 or whenever (I had a model from 2012 that I loved, it started to leak, they replaced it with a new model that has the tapered design, I begrudgingly accepted it) is much more preferable in my opinion.

Good sleeping pad, but I prefer the rectangle shape from previous years
