Why We Like The Insulated AXL Air Sleeping Pad

The Insulated AXL Air Sleeping Pad is the lightest insulated sleeping pad that Big Agnes has ever made, and we're here for it. Made for spring-to-autumn temperatures, the AXL Air uses Primaloft insulation and a Mylar heat-reflective laminate to boost your own body heat back your way. The result is a sleeping pad perfected for campers and backpackers who need additional warmth for chilled evenings.

  • Primaloft Silver insulation increases warmth for cold temperatures
  • Mylar layer reflects body heat back to you for added warmth
  • Uniquely woven ripstop increases tear strength and reduces weight
  • High-volume valve allows efficient inflation and quick deflation

It was great... until it leaked

Despite it's hefty price tag- it was well worth it in the beginning. Yes, it was loud- every movement sounded like crinkling tinfoil, but it was the most comfortable sleeping pad I've ever used-- and I've used a lot. BUT, I only got one season out of it, and a relatively short one at that, of about 25 nights of use. Now, it simply won't hold any air-- I've tried every trick in the book to find the leak, resealed the valve area in a few different ways, and yet it deflates after about an hour. Thanks, Big Agnes, for creating such a great--and terminal--product for us to rebuy every season.

They also have a fake lifetime warranty. Meaning... They claim lifetime but only for manufacturer defects. You can do better Big Agnes.


Insulated AXL Air Sleeping Pads

The lightest, most packable, ultralight three-season pad for reliable performance. Completely redesigned from the inside out and R-Value rated by a third party, the Insulated AXL Air pad combines a high-tenacity proprietary nylon rip-stop shell with minimalist internal construction to maximize every ounce for stability and comfort. Constructed with large outer tubes to keep you cradled on top, PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation with Cross Core™ traps body heat and reflects it back, achieving previously unattainable levels of lightweight warmth. Save your breath for dawn patrol, and use the included upcycled pad inflation sack to inflate.

This pad is great. So comfortable. Easy to inflate, took me about 25 breaths. Packs down small. Is light weight. I got it on sale from for 89$ I think. I will be buying another one for my wife when it goes on sale again. It's so good I might have to look into getting a Big Agnes tent!!!

7 nights and never needed air. I'm a 265# stomach/side/littlespoon sleeper. I got the WL and GF(bigspoon) got the P. Felt like a real bed paired with a thermorest foam pad. Slid around a little. Looking at straps now. I was skeptical. But I'm happy. Would buy again in the event of catastrophic failure. Nemo spoon bags for side sleepers were also a win. But the whole system cost more than what I'm sleeping on at home. 😑

Instead of straps by some seam sealer and put strips on both sides of your sleeping pad it prevents slipping very well and is cheap.
