I've heard they have made improvements on the noise issue of the XTherm. I went with the XLite long , for the extra width. Much less noise. also. No comments about it in near freezing weather.

I own both, since the XLite was not warm enough in winter. Xtherm is fine!

I've got the: Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XTherm = Excellent

I bought it initially for backpacking because of the 5.7 R-value, comfy thickness (2.5"), and weight 15ozs. Great pad for both backpacking and touring. It also packs small which matters even more to me when touring. The only downside is the $$$$

I got my REI discount on the XTherm a few years back and paid $151. Great pad. Keep shopping, it's the best I've ever used.

I hope you're joking about a bit of noise keeping bears away. I doubt you'll have any bears on your proposed routes, either.

The TR X-Therm pas has worked very well for me. The heat retention allows me to use a lighter quilt at lower temperatures. Some noise but seemed to lessen with use.

I take the Xlite hiking and with an Enlightened Equipment Revelation 40 down quilt I've been ok down to around 40F overnight with just a long sleeve running shirt and tights. Noise isn't bad. If I wanted to go much colder than 40 though I'd probably be looking at the XTherm.

I found that the Thermarest Basecamp Regular 72X20X2 is 2lbs6oz 4 season R-Value 5.0
packed 21X4.5 on sale $59.95 free S&H at Backcountryedge.com and $69.95 at Thermarest.com 4season sleeping pad my use would be from Nov to April and in 3-1998
I started with Thermarest basecamp sleeping pad and from April 1st to Nov 1st I am going to use my Thermarest Trail Pro Sleeping Pad....

I also looked at Thermarest Luxury map sleeping pad Regular 72X20X3 4 season R-Value 6.9
packed 21X6.2 3lbs 4oz $109.95 REI little heavy i would only I use it from Nov 1st to March/April 1st in Southern California but 3lbs4oz packed 21x6.2 not in my head at 50%

I think I would get the Thermarest Basecamp for Nov 1st to April 1st on bike and no bike

and Me and my Mom was in Cherokee, NC for 3 nights and it is very beautiful place to see and I love to go there on my Touring Bike someday from North to South bound on a bike..

Finding the Right 4 Season Sleeping pad with R-Value 4.0 up???

Do you have a hard time finding the right 4 Season Sleeping Pad???

I have looked at Nemo Cosmo insulated $139.95 75Denier poly 72x20x3 packed , (Nemo Tensor insulated $149.95 20Denier 72X20X3 "out of stock") not loking at Nemo anymore for Nov 1st to April 1st in Southern California and I looked at Thermarest NeoAir all season 72x20x2.5 $159.95 packed 11x4.8 1lbs 9oz R-Value 4.9 , and on 3/1998 I started with
Thermarest Basecamp sleeping pad for bike camping in San Diego, CA from 3-1998 to 4-2005 and I started look at the Thermarest Basecamp sleeping pad!


Themarest Basecamp Sleeping pad
72X20X2 Regular
Rectangular
2lbs 2oz
$69.95
75Denier polyester
packed 5x21

my mom is buying me the Thermarest Basecamp Sleeping pad on 8/2016
at https://www.campmor.com/



on 7-2008 I gone to the Thermarest Trail pro sleeping pad regular 72X20X2 R-Value 4.0
packed 4x21 1lbs 14oz I had a puppy dog put a hole in my Sleeping pad patched up
with superglue and 100 mile an hour mil spec duct tape as my spare sleeping pad! and on
1-2010 I got a New Thermarest Trail pro Sleeping pad to Sleep on and 11-2015 I got a pin hole in the Trail Pro sleeping pad I can't fine the pin hole!.. So on 12-3-2015 I ordered a
new Thermarest Trail pro Sleeping pad for April 1st to Nov 1st for Bike Camping/Bike Touring
in Southern California!... So my Mom said She will buy me my Thermarest Basecamp Sleeping Pad for Nov 1st to April 1st use in the Winter time in Southern California

P.S. I gone Homeless by Choice on 11-2008 to live my Dreams of Bike Touring in the USA!
and I am 50yrs old!

Tim,
I use the Thermarest Pro lite 4 pad. It is a 4 season pad. I have used it mounaineering, snow camping, backpacking, and bike touring.

I'm thinking it is similar to your Trail Pro pad.

I use this sleeping pad. In addition to normal camping, I also use it for winter mountaineering in temperatures well below freezing. It is more than warm enough for any condition you will encounter on Earth, provided you have the appropriate sleeping bag. It is very light and packs very small. It is noisier than a self inflating pad, but I am a young guy who can sleep through a rock concert. Your results may vary.
