kenneth karbowrote a review of Big Agnes Insulated Air Core Sleeping Pad - Mummy on July 23, 2010
The older I get, the more important "comfort" has become in my backpacking endeavors. Packs small and light. Might be a slight inconvenience to blow up, but really doesn't take all that long (5min. or less...), however well worth the solid night's sleep. Used it on the CDT, well above tree-line, with lumps, bumps and rocks everywhere... they all disappeared under the pad. It will be tough to ever go back to other pads, simply not worth the few ounces less. Tried the non-insulated pad, but found the cold came through the pad all too readily, thus moved up to the insulated. Seems durable, and comes with patch kit. This pad got my beloved spouse out on the trail with me, as she simply could not tolerate the aches and pains of sleeping on the ground any longer.
