NeoAir® Topo™ Luxe Sleeping Pad

For those familiar with our legendary NeoAir mattresses, the NeoAir Topo Luxe brings the line of sleeping pads to new heights. A whopping 4 inches (10 cm) thick, the Topo Luxe is our thickest backpacking NeoAir ever. The Topo Luxe packs down small before inflating for plush support and warmth thanks to our Triangular Core Matrix, the best warmth-to-weight construction for air pads. Available in several sizes, including a roomy regular wide, the Topo Luxe features the high-performance TwinLock valve with two dedicated valves for lightning-fast inflation or deflation. Like all Therm-a-Rest pads, the NeoAir Topo Luxe is made in market to ensure quality and minimize environmental impact. The pad includes a breath-saving pump sack, compact stuff sack and field repair kit.

The Questar is offered in three sizes, and designed to fit both men and women. Compression sack and storage sack included.
