This is another new addition to the Thermarest line that just came out mid last year. It is only filled with air, but has heat reflective technology to give it an R value of 4.9 and at only 19 ounces! That's enough R value for year around use for most people and it is very comfortable:

I'll be picking this up for hunting this year, but will get it soon here as we need it for a family backpacking trip down into the Grand Canyon in April.
Right before it came out I purchased its immediate predacessor which weighs and feels exactly the same but has a much lower R value of 2.0--OK for summer/early fall stuff although I used it alone this year on a November and December elk hunts
with temps down into the low teens:

With temps that low, though, I was using a -30F rated Feathered Friends bag of mine and would've been toasty warm almost no matter what.
I used this pad quite a bit throughout the summer and fall on ocean kayaking trips and backpack hunting and I can't tell you how comfortable it is to me. I actually think it's at least as comfortable as our mattress at home. The first time I blew it up, I was inadvertently and comfortably asleep in 5 minutes, with no intent to do so.
The predecessor to the Neo Air Trekker is the NeoAir:

It's lighter at 14 oz. and comfortable, BUT the material is very thin and VERY crinkly which results in it being very loud to sleep on if there is any movement. And, there have been many reports of punctures due in part to the very thin material. If you take care of it carefully and don't mind how loud it is, 14 oz. is pretty light for a comfortable nights sleep.
