User Review: Big Agnes Dual Core
Source: bought it new
Spacious, soft, and insulated, this pad helps give you the best night's sleep you can hope to get when on the trail.
This is hands down the best sleeping pad on the market. I've have used many different kinds but this one is the most versatile. I've had it for about two years now and it is very durable.
I've used it on straight ground with nothing between it and sand, gravel, sticks — and there's been no problem. It's very packable too. It's about the same size as a Nalgene when packed down. I'm also impressed with how little effort it takes to get it inflated.
I've had other like the Neo Air and I'm winded after blowing it up. But not this one. I just like the Big Agnes setup in general — with the pad inserted in the bottom of the bag. It's a smart idea and saves a lot of space.
