Therm-a-Rest® NeoAir® SpeedValve™ Line Expands

Award-winning SpeedValve technology expands to include the bestselling NeoAir XLite and NeoAir Trekker mattresses

 Therm-a-Rest, the leader in outdoor comfort, has announced its expansion of the NeoAir SpeedValve mattress line from the 3” NeoAir Camper™ SV to include the 3-season NeoAir Trekker™ SV and NeoAir XLite™ MAX SV, all providing campers with a faster way to feel at home in the outdoors.

 “NeoAir SpeedValve technology is another step forward for Therm-a-Rest, bringing speed and convenience to some of the lightest and most comfortable mattresses on the market,” said Doug Jacot, Vice President of Therm-a-Rest. 

Therm-a-Rest’s patent pending NeoAir SpeedValve inflates mattresses up to three times faster than traditional valves in similarly sized mattresses and deflates almost instantaneously, adding speed and convenience to the existing NeoAir Trekker and NeoAir XLite models. Each mattress combines NeoAir construction with layers of ThermaCapture™ reflective technology for ultimate comfort, stability and warmth.

The expanded NeoAir SpeedValve line delivers quicker and easier setup to everyone from car campers to backpacking and touring enthusiasts, as well as the ultralight ounce counters.

The NeoAir Trekker SV and NeoAir XLite MAX SV are available at and all REI stores nation-wide. The NeoAir Camper SV will be available worldwide in April 2016. All three models include a stuff sack and repair kit.
