1/8" vs 1/4" closed cell pads

I just received a new 1/8″ foam pad to use under my Thermarest NeoAir X lite, it weighs in at 4 oz versus 8.4 oz for my 1/4″ pad.
It is mainly used to protect the expensive NeoAir from Sharp things on the ground, I like not needing to carry the extra 4 oz, but I am worried that it might be too thin.Β Only time will tell.Β 

The 1/8″ pad is on top, 1/4″ below, they are both Sold by Lawson Equipment
The newer 1/8″ has cool straps and logo
