    A backpacker's best friend.

    You can have the most comfortable pack in the world, but your back's still going to be a bit knackered after trekking fifteen miles with a forty-pound bag strapped to your posterior. However, thanks to the Big Agnes Insulated Air Core Ultra Sleeping Pad, you're able to comfortably simmer down and snooze peacefully when you finally crawl into your tent after a full day on the trail.

    Designed to offer personalized cushioning, this insulated pad features a high-volume valve and micro-adjust air pressure button that, when combined, assure quick inflation. A generous dose of synthetic insulation makes this pad capable of dealing with temperatures down to fifteen degrees, so you won't have to spend your night hugging a warm bottle of water during those late fall and early spring trips.Additionally, the minimalist-yet-rugged I-beam construction keeps this sleeping pad's weight to a minimum, but without sacrificing durability in the process.

    Lightweight and Comfortable

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This pad is incredible! The pad rolls down to about the size of an 8oz can and stores quickly. It does take a few minutes to blow up the pad but sleeps like a dream!

    Warm and Comfy!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is quickly becoming my favorite sleeping pad. While it does take a couple minutes to inflate, that doesn't bother me. It's super comfy and insulates really well from the ground. This thing is thick as well! At 3.5" off the ground, you are getting plenty of cushioning. It also has a pressure adjustment (super easy to use) if you want a bit less firmness. So far I've got at least 20 nights on it and have not once noticed a smidge of deflation overnight. At this point I'm volunteering to sleep on the floor when we have company. Once my dog inevitable steps on it and pops, I'll probably be back for another.

    Oh, at 6ft, 185, I went regular to save on overall weight/space./$$. Yeah, a larger pad might be nice, but it works and I've never had any regrets.

    Big Agnes Sleep System!

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

    This is my first real backpacking pad and sleeping bag combo and I'm very excited about it. Picked up the Pumphouse to go along with this and it's really easy to inflate. Didn't bottom out on the pad at all which is great for a side sleeper. Could have maybe gone up to the Wide Regular but the Regular is a good size for me.


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

    It took me a few minutes to figure out the best way to blow this up, but once I did it was one of the easiest sleeping pads i've ever used. The one way valve for filling it with air is incredibly helpful. It is also super comfortable, I like to sleep on my side and this is a great pad for it! It isn't noisy either, and it packs down pretty small. It's a great pad for the price!

    Very Comfy

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

    This thing is unbelievably comfy, and easy to fill! So much better than the cheap-o one I used to use that would lose air and led to several cold, sleepless nights. This thing rivals the comfort of the free mattress that my land lord was throwing out that I use at home, and packs down to the size of 1 Cafe Rio burrito. The stuff sack is one of the few I’ve ever used that actually fits the product and doesn’t require you to be an origami pro.

    Seriously love this thing and can’t wait to spend many more nights sleeping on it, if you are at all hesitant I say go for it!

    Very Comfortable

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    You wouldn't think that a pad this light would produce such comfort, but it does. I sleep as good on this pad as I do in my own bed. Plus, pair it with one of big agnes' system bags and stay on your pad all night long.

    Sleep well all night!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This pad really hits all the bases, its lightweight for its thickness, its actually comfortable and compact. I have also found it to be quite durable and easy to inflate with BA new system. I've used it to low 30's with my 15 degree bag and I slept fine all night till the morn. Another BA product from BA!

    Comfortable, warm, quiet, and compact!!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I purchased the Big Agnes bag that holds this great mat in place all night long. I was able to adjust the comfort easily in the middle of the night when needed. It is very easy to roll up and it fits easily into is stuff sack. Only 40 degree nights so far - I was warm and comfortable.

    Pretty good but could be better

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Pads are generally pretty good. Inflate with limited work and deflate like a dream. Much nicer then our old pads. Thickness is very nice. The downfall of these pads is they are made of slippery material. We have use these a bunch and slid off every night. How about some R-n-D Big Agnes. Maybe even some grip tape or less slippery fabric on them. We tried 4 different sleeping bags along with 3 different sleepers over several days and all slid off. Honestly, the price is very good but I would look to something else unless you want to end up on the floor every night.


    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Got this to replace my bulky thermarest. It is so tiny and light. I even had to let some air out because it was too was the best night of sleep in the woods I have ever had. I can see it popping if you let your pups sleep with you in the tent and that would be sad.


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Lightweight, insulated, tough(ish), comfortable. I broke this guy out in the Lone Peak Cirque and loved it! Super light weight for the hike & keeps ya bum nice and warm. I love this thing!

    Insulated Comfort

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I love this pad! I own a different Big Agnes pad but wanted to give this one a try since it is insulated. It knocked my socks off! It was so comfortable and the inflation/deflation was extremely easy. I would highly recommend this for anyone that is a cold sleeper (especially us women!) and wants more warmth when sleeping under the stars.

    Do not operate Impaired

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The pad it self, awesome. Slept super comfy for a few nights on the Oregon coast. However, I would highly suggest inflating it sober for the first time. After knocking back a (few) cold ones with the boys, I had the hardest time figuring out how to inflate it for the first time. I ended up with a modified sucker-fish playing a tuba technique, while lying on my back with the pad on top of me. It took me a while, but I figured out I was on the wrong side and I got it inflated and slept great!

    OK at first, then leakage

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    You don't want your sleeping pad to give out while winter snow camping. My insulated air core deflated in a couple of hours.
    I have used this pad many times with mixed results. I really want it to work, but it just doesn't fit the bill.
    I have tried to find the leak to no avail. Big Agnes hasn't been any help at all.

    Big Agnes Insulated Air Core Ultra Sleep

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

    What can I say, my girlfriend and I both used these last weekend and woke up to a better night of sleep than we get at home. Maybe this means we have a really bad mattress, but I'd like to think that it speaks more for the comfort of the pad.

    I toss and turn in my sleep, so inevitably I slept on my back, side, and stomach on this pad. No bottoming out in any position. The pad isn't silent when you are adjusting your sleeping position, but it surely isn't loud either.

    What blew me away was the weight and size of this pad for the comfort it provides. It rolls up to about the size of a 32 ounce Nalgene bottle. Honestly, the comfort isn't that far off my car-camping-only Therm-a-rest Luxury Map pad.

    Bottom line: This is a lightweight, low volume backpacking pad that will make you forget you're sleeping on the ground.

    Great pad

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Just finished 5 days of kayak camping up at Glacier Bay National Park and this pad is great. Did not matter how rocky the beaches were that we slept on, I slept comfortably every night. Packs down-well and is relatively lightweight. Bought a second one for my wife to use.

    Sleep Like a Baby

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

    I don't usually camp with a sleeping pad, but when I do, I go to Big Agnes to make sure I have the right pad for my needs. This pad was lightweight, easy to blow up, and insulated me up on Mt. Rainier quite well. It was amazing to see the difference between when I was up on the pad and when my foot or hand slipped off the pad and touched the frozen non-insulated ground of the tent. Needless to say I would have frozen without it!

    The regular size pad handled my lanky 6-foot frame with ease and made it easy to sleep tight without slipping off. What's more, is that now when you blow up the pad, there is a one-way valve to capture your progress so you no longer have to manually block the air from coming back out, making everything more simple, and believe me, when you're tired, you'll thank Big Agnes for that.

    The only thing I would have liked to have had would be the Pumphouse bag, which has been mentioned in other reviews. I used one when I got back and realized how nice it would have been to have one up on the mountain. So seriously, grab this pad and the Pumphouse, and go try it for yourself. You won't be disappointed.

    What is the R value?

    Hey Kenyon, Big Agnes does not rate their pads based on an R value. This pad is rated to be comfortably slept on with the appropriate sleeping bag up to 15 degrees. If you have any other questions feel free to reach out to me directly via the information listed above.
