    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.

    • WRM HL synthetic insulation
    • Heat reflective technology
    • I-beam construction
    • High-volume valve with air pressure adjustment

    Comfortable and Warm

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought this to upgrade from my thermarest. I used it for a week while backpacking in Arkansas this Spring. Temp lows were 30F. This pad kept me pretty warm. It fits into my Big Agnes Roxy Ann sleeping bag with pad sleeve perfectly. I was able to put my pillow between the pad and the sleeve which allowed me a MUCH better nights sleep! It kept me from pad envy this year as I was off the ground at least 3 inches along with my backpacking partner. My only issue was the width being a bit narrow. It took me anywhere from 40-60 breaths to inflate and deflates in seconds. Overall I am happy with my purchase.

    Well Insulated

      Used this just off the Great Western trail up Big Mountain. I slept on this pad with the North Face Furnace. It was a 25 degree night. I stayed plenty warm and well padded. Much more comfortable than the Klymit Static V that I upgraded from. I did struggle to stay on the pad for the first couple hours of the night. Woke up wedged between it and the wall of the tent. However, living out of a back pack, you cant expect the best night of sleep. This pad is very light and takes up very little space in the pack. I would recommend this pad to anyone looking to shed some weight and doesn't want to feel the ground.
      Also, takes a bajillion breaths to blow-up.

      Tested

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

      Used this on a 27 degree night in a tent and should have brought my closed cell foam Ridgerest to put underneath. Cold spot under my rear. Took a star away for that. Not sure what the 15 degree rating they give this means. But I love it for its comfort and weight. This was an upgrade from my Thermarest Pro-lite Plus. Its thicker and more comfortable and weighs a little less. Yes it is slippery. Doesn't take long to blow up. Very happy with it!

      Sleep Better & Warmer

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Have you ever slept on one of those amazing pillow top memory foam mattresses covered in sheets with a thread count of, like, a million? Yeah? Well it’s nothing like that, but it sure beats sleeping on the cold hard ground. Give yourself a little insulation from the cold and a few inches of air to cope with the unevenness you’re sure to encounter at any number of your future campsites.

      This sleeping pad is super comfortable for a side sleeper like myself, and for that reason I preferred it over my previous self-inflating Thermarest. The only down side to this pad is having to blow it up every time you move camp.

      Very comfy, but slick

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

      I got the regular length/wide width pad as a replacement for a 20" wide pad. This pad is fairly easy to blow up (although I can't wait for Big Agnes to make a filling sack). I did not time myself like other reviewers, but it was a short amount of time required. The pad is very comfortable and did not lose air no matter how much I was rolling around. I love how small this pad is when not in use. I can throw it in a duffel for trips where a bed is not guaranteed or just as easily into my pack for a hike. The worst part of the pad is the slipperiness of it. My pillow kept sliding off during the night and I kept waking up because of it. I think I would be able to solve this by making a sheet or using a strap around the pillow.

      An orange soda? No, that's my camp pad!

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

      This thing is teeny teeny tiny. Truthfully it is slightly bigger than an orange soda...more like a super sized soda but it's still much smaller than anything else I've used.

      4 inches of pillowy air is plenty to keep your achy camping back at bay. Honestly you could sleep on a river bed and probably be fine as far a comfort goes.

      It took me about 1 min 15 seconds to blow the whole thing up...I did feel super lightheaded after blowing it up that fast but most people could set it up in under 2 minutes and feel just fine even if you're tired and have been hiking all day.

      As far as materials go, it feels kind of rubbery to me...like a rubbery plastic mix that is light weight, doesn't make a lot of noise if you move around and feel pretty durable. It also comes with a patch kit so if you do have any mishaps on the road then you can fix it and keep on camping.

      Now as far as my impression of it...
      I got the 20R version, it works really well for a small 1 or 2 person tent, a hammock or whenever sleeping space is an issue. That being said, if space isn't an issue I sprawl out too much for the narrower pad so if you aren't backpacking and or space isn't an issue I'd go with the wider one if you like to spread your wings in your sleep like me.

      Secondly, I sleep on my stomach and I've found that I like the horizontal baffles a little bit better for that. If you are a side sleeper or maybe even a back sleeper this pad is great!
