User Review: Big Agnes Insulated Air Core
I bought an Insul-mat X-lite, which is really comfortable, until the temperature drops. I nearly froze on Mt. Adams one night, until I used my husband's Big Agnes Insulated Sleep Core the next night. I did not realize at the time of my first purchase that for two more ounces, I would get 20 degrees in insulation value.
My husband and son bought theirs at the same time...I am still trying to talk my teenager into swapping pads with his mother...(I gave up trying to talk my husband out of his :))
At 24 ounces that rolls to the size of an oversized nalgene, I would buy this pad over. I am a middle aged, matronly lady who would not survive on some of those cute excuses of sleeping pad. I rest very well on this, and I never wake up feeling like I slept on the ground. Without it, I could not backpack!
