Does this pad make a lot of noise when you shift position?

Best Answer Responded on

If you use it in a Big Agnes sleeping bag, then it'll be in the sleeve and you won't be sliding on it, in which case it doesn't make noise. That's the setup I have. If you use it independently, which I wouldn't recommend because you'll fall off it, then it is a bit noisier.

I have 3 different insulation value BA pads and they are all quiet when used with my BA bags. I also have a spare non-BA sleeping bag and have not noticed it being noisy either.

The Big Agnes pad that is loud is the Clearview pad. I have a Clearview and it is almost the same as this pad but it is clear plastic. The Aircore pad has a fabric coating over the plastic and it is very quiet.
