User Review: Big Agnes Insulated Air Core
Price Paid: $55
An excellent and comfortable sleeping pad. Went from a Therm-a-Rest 3/4 Ultralite to this, and believe me, I don't quibble about the extra weight. The insulation works quite well at least into the lower 20s. I find that slightly under-inflating the pad seems to yield the most comfort; it's not necessary to bounce a quarter on the thing.
It only takes a minute to blow up and a bit longer to deflate. It has thus far proven quite durable as well, though I'd think twice about areas with lots of cactus or sharp rocks. I have lightened my pack considerably in recent years, but this is one item that is worth lugging around.
