I love the NeoAir design in general, and for me, they are my favorite.
I started with the original and loved it. Most comfy of any other pad (to me). Lighter than others. Packed small.
2+ years later it developed a slow leak and I ended up going with an XLite. I went with the large to make up for the cut corners (my biggest/only hang up with them). It is 2 oz heavier than my original Neo, but I will admit, I have come to like the width at the torso, so I am ok with it.
However, the NeoAirs are hot for me in the summer time (think 80+ F nights) so I have went with a small ProLite 3. It is 5 oz lighter than the XLite, and for me, just as comfy, but not as hot.
I also have a ProLite 4 (regular) and it is a great pad, but too heavy... comfy wise, it's great. I also have a regular size REI Lite Core 1.5, which is the same pad as the ProLite 4...
I also have an Exped Synmat 7 and I don't find it to be comfy at all, but it's my warmest pad. I can't sleep on it though so it is my loaner pad.
I bought a Static V and found it to be the most uncomfy pad I have tried. There were just so many things wrong with that pad... I sold it.
So now my go to for colder hikes is the XLite, and warmer trips is my ProLite 3. I am a happy camper...
As far as durability, no doubt some of the other mentioned pads are more "durable", however, IMO, an air pad is an air pad, and any of them can pop. If someone plans to use an air pad in the field, it is their responsibility to make sure that they use it correctly (like any other piece of gear). Take a moment to clear the ground of anything sharp, and carry a repair kit, that's all there is to it. If I want a durable pad, I will stick with ccf. If I want a comfortable pad, I will go with my XLite.
As for noise, yep, the Neo's generally make some crinkling noise, however, I personally do not notice it because I am sleeping like a baby on mine... However, that doesn't mean that others are asleep, so they may notice it (although not for long cause once I pass out I am still...so no crinkling). But to be fair, I have spent a number of nights listening to others roll around on their (something other than a NeoAir) pads, and guess what, they can be loud too... The best way to get by noise is to sleep way away from others, use ear plugs, take some sort of sleep aid, or all 3.
My opinion, go with the XLite and don't look back! :)
