More NeoAir info

Posted by on October 8th 2008 in In the News, Shiny new kit

Since the previous post I've been in contact with Maurice Gowen of Cascade Designs regarding the NeoAir. Maurice kindly resolved the issue regarding the labelling of the packaged mat that we found and photographed at the Outdoor Trade Show... it is indeed a Regular (20" x 72") mat. If it can be rolled down to that size after being used, I'll be even more impressed. Maybe we'll find out soon - Maurice has been generous enough to put me on the list for testing this product prior to its commercial release on April 1st 2009. He also granted me permission to post the following tech-spec document.  Click it to see a clearer, larger version.

More for the Neophiles

For those of you who are waiting patiently for the 2009 commercial release of the Therm-a Rest NeoAir range of 3-season mats, here's a little more info, and some more pics from the Outdoor Trade Show 2008 (courtesy of Darren Christie, who holds the copyright to them).

A few things are worth noting:

  • There's not been much mention of it, but there's a seat pad in the range too
  • There's also a range of 20D silicone-treated Cordura nylon NeoAir Stuff Sacs
  • Everything in the range is the same colour - "Limon"
  • I know that I've mentioned it before, but I'll restate it - the packaged rep sample was labelled up as a Regular, size 20" x 48", which is at odds with the info in the 2009 Dealer Workbook from which the following data was gleaned:
