User Review: Big Agnes Insulated Air Core
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $116.95
Comfortable and thick, provides excellent insulation from the ground. Nice small size, takes very little room in my pack. Takes a bit to inflate.
- Comfortable and warm
- Rolls up small
- Great for backpacking
The pad provides great support for my back and lower body. It is extremely comfortable and the prima loft insulation helps prevent heat loss in colder temps.
I have used it on the trail and car camping and it has held up perfectly. No leaks or any other problems. The inflation valve is very easy to use. It is a good idea with any air pad to check it out before you hit the trail to ensure that it has not acquired any leaks since its last use. The pad also comes with a stuff sack and repair kit.
I purchased the large model for the extra width and do not regret it. The 25 inch width is worth the added weight.
Inflating this pad takes a bit, about 35 breathes. When I have used it car camping I just use a small pump to blow it up.
A great 3-season pad, definitely not for subzero use though.
I recommend this pad to all.
