I’ll still happily use it... it fits in my tent best. The NeoAirs are all tremendously long, because that’s the only way you can get the wide pads. The Exped is shorter, but tapered some, and where it tapers, but I do not, it lets me get cool. They’re all nice pads. If I had to pick one, it would be the Therm. Yes it’s a few ounces heavier, but if I can only have one, I want the one that would let me be warm. I can always throw the covers to the side.
Thermarest makes reg/wide versions now with a new inflation/deflation valve.
