NeoAir Weights on 11/03/2011 23:21:47 MDT Print View

Just received a brand new Thermarest NeoAir Large today. The box states that the weight for this 25" x 77" pad is 19oz or 550g. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it weighs 17.43oz or 494g! Is this a common occurrence or did I just get lucky? Have they lightened their pads but not yet changed their info on the box? Just wondering.

I don't personally have one... but the weight given may be with the storage sack and repair kit included. I think I read somewhere that they include those weights. I don't even actually know if the neoair comes with a repair kit and storage sack, so I'm just spit balling here.

This might be the case if T-Rest actually gave us stuffsacks and repair kits but sadly, they're "accessories" in their realm. :-(

My standard short weighs within an ounce of spec.

Cheers,

Well it looks like I'm the unlucky one then. My 'small' NeoAir is 9.36oz and my two regular ones are 14.3 and 14.4.

My regular comes in at 13.8 oz. The extra stuff sack I bought (for a few $$ on sale) is 0.5 oz and the entire repair kit weighs in at 0.6 oz. However, I just put a rubber band around my Neo. At the given weights though, if my regular ever comes to an end I may go with a large... that's great to know. Thanks for the info!

My NeoAir large, which I got from Bean's because I STILL expect it to go back, weighs 14.9oz, 4222g. Maybe Bean's won't get it back!

I am with Dan, my regular was 14.2 oz as well. I dumped it for an Exped Synmat UL7, however.

It seems like CD is getting the weights a lot closer than POE does... Just saying...

Small: 9.3oz (purchased during the first year they were available)
large: 18.3oz (purchased spring 2011)

edit: I weighed each pad on two different scales ... they agreed with each other
