Combining the Hyperion bag with the NeoAir UberLite sleeping pad not only helps you move faster through the mountains during the day, but it helps you sleep well at night so you can do it again the next day.
Therm-a-Rest NeoAir UberLite Sleeping Pad
There’s no point in an ultralight sleep system if you don’t sleep well with it. That would mean you get up in the morning not rested and move just as slow as you would if you had more comfortable but heavier gear. With that being said, the NeoAir UberLite sleeping pad delivers you ultralight comfort. One of the cons I found with this product is durability. I was warned before I used it that the material is thin and pretty easy to put a hole in. To ensure this doesn’t happen, I have been putting a Therm-a-Rest RidgeRest underneath it to protect it from any sharp objects.
This sleeping pad weighs only 8.8 oz making it lighter than any other product in the NeoAir collection. That’s about as much as a kitten! The 2.5-inch thick pad packs into its 6 in x 3.5 in stuff sack leaving you with room for your other items, just like the Hyperion bag.

At the end of the day, no pun intended, this sleeping pad is super comfortable and I recommend it to any backpacker looking for something light and comfy. I slept great on it and it provided an exceptional layer of insulation. As I mentioned in the Hyperion review, I spent some cold nights on it and I think the NeoAir Uberlite had a hand in my warmth and comfort.

Growing up snowboarding and hiking in the bitter cold winters and humid summers of northern Vermont, Eliza learned how to beat up gear and quickly became infatuated with new technologies. After moving to Colorado in 2015 to pursue a degree in recreation and outdoor education at Western Colorado University, her passion for the outdoors grew exponentially. Soon after, she picked up rock climbing, telemark skiing, backpacking, canyoneering, and is slowly learning to love rafting. Through these learning processes, Eliza began to understand the importance of the right gear and hopes to share her experiences and knowledge with others through Engearment.
Now working for Beacon Guidebooks as the ‘Wearer of Many Hats’ (yes, that is her official title), Eliza has learned the ins and outs of the outdoor industry. She has also worked on marketing teams, as a photographer, media coordinator, outdoor instructor and as a wrangler. She is especially excited to encourage other women in the outdoors and is an advocate for diversity and inclusion.
