Gear Review

5 5

My cheeks are still sore!! But...

What an absolutely warm pad that packs away just beautifully within the sleeping bag stuff sack along with the bag. I sometimes wish you did not have the blow the thing up a little, but it is little effort for such a warm pad. Just got it & tested it out in 15 degree weather - beautiful!! I have a Big Ag Lost Ranger bag that I tried the insulated BA air core pad with - it is not in the same class as the dual core. Spend the extra few bucks if you plan to do cold weather camping - if you don't, the insulated air core works just fine for most everything else and is an extremely comfortable pad.

Bottom line - a great pad with a repair kit, light weight, great comfort and warmth - this piece of gear is gold standard!!
