ThermaRest:

Therm-a-Rest is a brand line, pioneered by Cascade Designs, Inc., of portable outdoor sleeping and seating comfort essentials. Therm-a-Rest is a long-established company - they've been building this stuff for nearly 3 decades, which gives you some confidence that it's not a fly-by-night place. They don't just build air mattresses - many of their products are actually "sleeping mats" which are designed to roll up and to be really effective for backpacking. 

 In July 2008, Cascade Designs, Inc. released a product called the Therm-a-Rest NeoAir mattress as part of a "Fast and Light" series.  This comes in four sizes, ranging in retail price from $119.95 to $169.95.  The Neo Air mattress is very lightweight - it comes in at only 14 ounces, which makes it a good idea if you're planning on using it for something where portability matters - camping or hiking is a big one for that.

Advantages:

  1. Carries varying sizes giving consumers more options in choosing a mattress thatís right for them.
  2. Made by the pioneers in outdoor bed mattresses, and that brand name carries reliability.

Disadvantages:

  1. Some models have not been released yet, however, consumers may want the product now.
  2. There are lesser priced air mattresses compared to the cost of Therm-a-Rest.  Thus, the brand may be too pricey for value shoppers. On the other hand, when you are out camping, you don't want to get to a stopping point deep in the woods and suddenly find out your bed won't inflate. Quality matters in some cases.
