Does the Big Agnes Two Track Sleeping Pad...

Posted on

Does the Big Agnes Two Track Sleeping Pad fit into the included cover that comes with the Sleeping Giant Memory Foam Sleeping Pad? The first is two inches thick according to the description. Thanks!

Responded on

Hey Hariet.
I have a similar pad by Big Agnes that is also 2" thick and it fits into this Sleeping Giant sleeve, no prob. The thing to double check is to ensure you are ordering the correct length for your pad.

This is one of my favorite things in my camping kit - it helps me sleep through the night because it's so comfy. I LOVE IT!

Does anyone know how placing over a sleeping pad impacts the R value? For example, if the sleeping pad has a 3.1 R value, how will this affect it?

Responded on

Not sure I understand your question... this is a sleeping pad. Usually R-values are additive, if that helps.

Responded on

Yes, I think that answers my question. As I understand it, you insert your regular sleeping pad into this pad for extra comfort. So at least theoretically, a 3.1 pad inserted into this would result in a 6.6 R value?

Responded on

I don't think you are going to get 100% efficiency when doubling pads but you should at least see an increase. REI always recommends using 2 pads for winter camping usually a foam and an air pad. This is partially for insurance in case the air pad springs a leak, but I think the foam pad will also help the air pad be a little warmer.



R-value refers to a pads ability to resist heat flow. So the higher the value the better the pad will insulate you from the cold ground.

Rather disappointing

Mine just arrived today and I immediately tried it out in my living room. My first impression upon taking it out of its bag was that it was considerably lighter and more compressible than I was anticipating. With a sinking feeling I unrolled it to discover it's barely half an inch of regular foam - not memory foam as advertised. I have plenty of memory foam at home and it's all very dense and supportive. This isn't, not even slightly. It basically adds nothing whatsoever by way of comfort to whatever you place it on. Since my trip starts next week I don't have time to try to find something else. The glowing reviews I've been reading about it made me think I was getting a proper full inch of real memory foam. Don't be fooled - it's barely half an inch of regular foam.

Responded on

Have you tried it on your pad yet? It makes a huge difference! I recommend actually trying it on your inflated pad before you send it back. It will be significantly more noticeable on the pad, then just laying it your living room floor.

Can you tell me where this is made? I know it's a Colorado company but at least one site says they're imported. From? If this were made in the US, I'd definitely buy one.

Responded on

I'd be interested in WHICH country as well, as my husband has definite opinions on countries he will and won't purchase from.

Responded on

Patty these are made in China

Had to Have It

Borrowed one of these from a friend and after that it was all over, I had to have one.

Foam adds that little extra touch you need to get a good night sleep just about anywhere. Definitely a piece of gear for car camping, as it's too large / bulky to backpack with.

I'll reiterate the notes above: this is a sleeping pad COVER. You'll need an inflatable pad to put inside this cover. I use a mummy-shaped ThermaRest ProLite inflatable pad.

Best $$ you'll spend to sleep like a baby in your tent or the bed of your truck.

Is this pad self inflating?

Is this pad self inflating?

Responded on

It's not inflating at all. This mattress is just a memory foam core covered with fabric. No air involved.

sleeping pad COVER

This is really a sleeping pad cover and not a pad as described. Don't use alone or you'll be sleeping on the ground... Adds some comfort to a pad though so great for what its designed for.

Sweet Dreams

Tried this out on a friend's sleeping setup, and knew I HAD to have one. Paired with my Big Agnes air mattress, it feels more comfortable than my bed!! So amazing. The pad itself is about an inch thick, and provides the extra padding you need to disguise the fact you are sleeping on an air mattress. The most comfortable camping sleep I've ever had. Obviously not for backpacking, but if you desire luxe car camping...this is your ticket to sweet sweet dreams.

Very disappointed for now.

Very disappointed it is not 3.5" as stated. It doesn't say anywhere that these are the dimensions with another pad inserted. Nor should it give the dimensions with a pad, because it depends directly on the thickness of the pad you put in.
I did buy a BA insulated aircore with it , but counted on adding the 3.5" to the 2.5" of the pad. Another disappointement was that I thought it was a self inflatable one. Teaches me to stick to my old motto of not buying stuff on impuls even if it's on sale.
Debating wheher to actually try them this weekend or send them back immediately for misrepresentation.
BTW: I've been camping and backpacking for decades, and this setup is intended for car camping, so this is not a beginner's inexperienced buy.

Responded on

I meant I thought the BA Aircore was self-inflating, obviously not the memory foam one.

Responded on

Hey Slo,

It's the R-value that is stated at 3.5, this rating does not have any relation to the actual thickness of the pad itself, which is about 1" thick.

R-VALUE is a measurement in regards to the ability of the insulation of the pad's capacity to resist (that's the "R") heat flow. The higher a pad's R-value, the better you can expect it to insulate you from cold surfaces. These measurements are all provided to us by the manufacturer.

Pretty freaking comfortable for car camping

My boyfriend and I just used these for the first time and I was impressed. I was able to sleep comfortably on my side at night.

Definitely note that these pads are sleeves for an existing pad and combined makes 3.5". I will say though, that it's a great compromise to having something nice and light for backpacking that converts to something comfortable for car camping. I like the idea.

The dimensions on these pads are pretty standard, so you don't need a Big Agnes sleeping pad to fit inside - I have Therma-rest and my boyfriend has Stoic.

When my husband and I tent-camp, we often...

Posted on

When my husband and I tent-camp, we often wake up in the morning whith a lot of condensation in the tent, especially if the weather causes us to zip up the tent windows, flaps etc. We tried ordinary foam before and they were often saturated by morning resulting in what felt like a big wet sponge. Thermarest pads have solved that problem, however, as we are getting older, we would appreciate a bit more padding. If this matress pad is made of foam, will we have the same problem of it absorbing the condensation in the tent?

Responded on

I believe this is covered by nylon, so you shouldn't have any problems. You should also consider the various Big Agnes inflatable pads, they're great.

beauty sleep!

I had been lusting after a friend's BA Sleeping Giant for a few years and FINALLY pulled the trigger on one of my own. I have an extra wide Therm-a-rest that I already use for car camping (it's an older model, I think it's called the CampLight?) that is 25inches wide. So I got the wide/long version of the Sleeping Giant and it's a perfect fit. I have never slept so well in a tent!


I have also used my ultralight/backpacking POE sleeping pad in there for times when we are on our way to a backpacking trip, but still have one or two nights car camping before we get to the start of our intended hike/backpack. And then leave the Sleeping Giant in car while we are off in the woods/desert.


Sure it takes up space, but if you have room in the car, it makes your sleep much more sound! I also find that the memory foam WILL squish down pretty small, so if you have a little bit of extra space in a duffel, you can cram it in there and then it really doesn't take as much extra space as you'd think.


I have also compared this to the Therm-a-rest dreamtime and think BA's quality is MUCH better, and they paid a lot more attention to detail.

Big Agnes Memory Foam Pad

It works okay when combined with the air mattress. Rather large to pack and very expensive. Find something at 1/3 the price.

Has anyone tried using this alone, without a pad? How well does it work that way? Or doesn't it?

Responded on

T-Bob, it will work but it was not comfortable enough for me. This foam pad compresses too much on it's own IMO.

Responded on

Agreed, I would not use it alone either. But its definitely the best camping sleep I've ever had when combined with my Thermarest. I have an older one, but I think it would fall somewhere in between a size large in this model: http://www.backcountry.com/therm-a-rest-basecamp-sleeping-pad and the size large in this one: http://www.backcountry.com/therm-a-rest-trail-lite-sleeping-pad. I just leave my sleeping pad inside the Sleeping Giant when I deflate and roll it all together. One of the best camp purchases ever!

Super duper

This things makes my air core pad super comfy. Hwvent used it on a trip yet but tried it out in my house and it definitely made a difference. Only cons are it's a little bulky for packing but otherwise it's an awesome buy.

The only way to make Big Agnes Dual Core better is the Sleeping Giant Memory Foam

The title says it all - because I am usually cold I got the Dual Core sleeping pad - 2.5" on it's own is really comfortable, adding the extra inch on this for 3.5" of sleeping magic is pretty sweet. It makes car camping more comfortable than sleeping at home (stars are always better than ceilings). I like that the inflatable portion zips into the memory foam portion as well so there is no sliding around. If this were wider I might just get rid of my bed entirely... maybe Big Agnes can come up with a 2-person version?

Big Agnes Sleeping Giant Memory Foam Sleeping Pad

Let me say that this is not 3.5inches thick as advertised. Mine barely comes in at an inch thick. I am truly disappointed. ~After a reply to a question from Kirk Haskell I have raised my review by 1 star. The measurement is with the inner pad inserted, giving this pad a 1" thickness~I tested one at a Big Agnes tent with an Air Core Pad underneath and was sold. I then noticed a 45lb weight directly underneath the pad that I had not noticed(it was to hold the tent down). On the pad I tested, it combined with the Air Core to become a thick pad of luxury that I marveled at. It rolls up loosely to around the same size as a Therm-a-Rest Ridge Rest. Mummy shape saves ounces but still provides the comfort where you need it. Thankful that they sell a long as well. Haven't found a more comfortable pad system when combining with an Air Core.

Posted on

I have this and the dimensions are not as stated. Mine barely reaches an inch in thickness. I am satisfied with it, but was hoping for the same comfort I have from the memory foam topper I have on my bed at home that actually is 3.5 inches thick. I tested one before buying at a Big Agnes booth and it was much thicker than mine.

How thick is yours?

Best Answer Responded on

Logan,
The one you tested at the Big Agnes Booth had a pad in it as well. This is just designed to have a pad slipped into it. When we display these usually have a clearview pad r inulated aircore which would make it 3.5 inches thick.

Responded on

Thanks Kirk!

With my Insulated Air Core inside, it does reach the 3.5 inch mark. I am satisfied with mine, it's just that it says "3.5 inches" and doesn't mention that the measurement is with a pad inserted.

I bought my pad system after the comfort I experienced in the booth and have not been let down by the comfort mine has provided me while out in the woods. It is so versatile that I use it when I am crashing at a friend's house for the night. I guess I just wish that the dimension measurements would include that the thickness is with a pad inserted(not just on this site, but everywhere).

Responded on

They make two, they make an actual 3.5" pad and they make an addon sleeping pad topper which is an inch thick. Looks like you either bought the wrong one or they listed the specs incorrectly or sent you the wrong model.
