Proud owner of an xlite and finally went with a large pad.
Warm enough for winter for me, especially when I couple it with ccf sit-pad. Big enough I don't have to pay attention to staying on it.
At 1lb it's kinda heavy but I sleep like a champ so it's worth it to me. I guess you could say it's my luxury item?
...maybe just say that the difference of 4 oz from the regular size to the large size is my luxury item. (Reg is 12oz, large is 16oz I believe). So I'm only carrying 4oz "extra" and for the difference it makes with my sleep I'll take it.
And (I hate to even bring it up) but I have noticed my wife's xlite (the older, Piss yellow one) is kinda crinkly, but when we are lying down it's not noticeable, just when we are getting the bed put together.
So to all you neoair "crinklists" I conceed... You have an argument, but not a strong one.
