I have a BA Yampa sleeping bag, and an insulated air core pad (3.25" thick). I need another pad, and am looking at getting the Air Core SL to save a few ounces, but am wondering if the added thickness (3.75") will make it difficult to fit it into the sleeve on my Yampa?

Responded on

You should be fine with this pad with your Yampa pad. That Yampa bag is made to fit any of their 20 inch pads and the thickness isn't going to effect the fit into the sleeve too much.

Amazing!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought 2 of these pads one for me and one for my girlfriend. My first thought was wow this is light but how well will it hold up. I don't toss it out next to the campfire but I definitely don't baby it after the first season of about 30 nights on them and being packed for about 250 miles on trails neither of us has had one flat. Also I'm 5'10" about 230 lbs and it is amazingly comfortable for me. The ability to sleep on your side in the backcountry is something I never thought I could have this works great!

Nice Pad.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This pad made my nights on the hard bunks of the AT shelters much more comfortable. Plus its lightweight and small packing size made it all the more appealing. It is a little loud at night with its crunching sound, but that has been typical for similar pads. I also wish it was a hair wider. All in all, it is a great product.

Too narrow for thickness

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

You would think extra thickness translates into a more comfortable pad, but that's not what I found. I am 6'4'' with a slim build but broad shoulders, but have slept comfortably on 20" pads before.

The issue with this pad is that because it's so thick, if you arms hang off the sides at all they have a long way to go. This ended up being really painful on the shoulders after a whole night of dangling arms and alternatively trying to hold them back on the pad.

This pad could work fine for someone with a smaller build, but if you find any part of your arms coming off a 20" wide pad, it likely won't.
