Therm-a-Rest® Introduces Three New Ultralight, High-Tech Mattresses
Mattresses represent new leaders in self-inflating, deep winter and affordable three-season categories
SEATTLE, WA (January 20, 2015) —Therm-a-Rest continues to lead the outdoor mattress category with the launch of three new mattresses: the high-tech NeoAir® XTherm MAX mattress for extreme winter and mountain adventurers, the hybrid EvoLite Plus for backpackers and campers seeking ultralight comfort with self-inflating convenience, and the versatile NeoAir® Voyager™ for seasoned and first-time backpackers looking for an affordable, high-quality, American-made air mattress with three-season warmth.
The new NeoAir XTherm MAX mattress joins Therm-a-Rest’s 2015 line as a rectangular version of the award-winning winter favorite, the NeoAir XTherm. When temperatures start to dip into the extreme range, the XTherm MAX keeps users comfortable and warm with more coverage utilizing a non-tapered design with an unbelievable warmth-to-weight ratio – 5.7 R-value in a 17 oz, 2.5-in-thick mattress.
The new EvoLite™ Plus mattress is a warmer version of brand’s highly acclaimed, award-winning new EvoLite mattress. Ideal for campers and backpackers pushing the shoulder seasons, the 2.5-inch-thick EvoLite Plus mattress features ThermaCapture™ reflective technology to trap radiant heat and boost warmth for a high-loft, ultra comfortable and warm winter mattress with virtually no added weight or bulk. The mattress features the same patent-pending AirFrame™ construction as the EvoLite, combining the ultralight, high-loft comfort and compactness of an air mattress with the convenience and support of self-inflating foam.
Not to be outdone, Therm-a-Rest continues to impress with the new, competitively priced NeoAir Voyager mattress. The Voyager mattress brings together the brand’s new, patent-pending WaveCore™ construction with ThermaCapture reflective technology to deliver impressive, three-season comfort, warmth and performance at an MSRP of just $89.95 (size regular). The Voyager air mattress houses 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 new NeoAir XTherm Max is available immediately while the EvoLite Plus, and NeoAir Voyager mattresses will be available in stores spring, 2015. All three mattresses will be shown at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Seattle-based Therm-a-Rest® has been the market leader in premium outdoor comfort since its invention of the world’s first self-inflating mattress in 1972. A commitment to providing inventive, long-lasting and reliable products has driven the expansion of the line into closed-cell foam mattresses, air mattresses, sleeping bags, blankets and seating solutions that reinvent the way people sleep and relax outside. All Therm-a-Rest mattresses are made in the Seattle, WA and Cork, Ireland manufacturing facilities. For more information, visit www.thermarest.com.
