    Big Agnes Insulated Q-Core Pad

    Big Agnes Insulated Q-Core Pad is rated 4.3333 out of 5 by 54.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Missing Something So 24hrs later this thing is going back! Dont get me wrong, it is warm, it is comfortable, but there are drawbacks. I bet if you're reading this you may also be looking at the synmat. I'm going back for it even though it weighs 3oz more. The synmat was more comfortable in my tests, I didn't slip off as much and it was MUCH easier to deflate/inflate and pack. Supposedly there is some weird way to pack the q-core. It also seemed that the synmat felt more rugged. If your debating between the two, go to REI and try them out yourself.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from best pad on the market Bought this pad summer 2012 and have used it about 8 times camping in Idaho, Utah, washington. I'm impressed with the comfort and warmth and its no exaggeration to say its like sleeping in a bed. I realize it takes a few minutes of work to inflate but worth it to me for the comfort & to save space in the pack. Rolls down to a small package & weighs around 2 pounds. Some say this is too heavy but I am willing to carry it if I can sleep well and feel good the next day. I also have an exped downmat which is a bit warmer but the q-core is smaller & lighter to pack. Both pads are fantastic and I rate them the same although the q-core is less expensive. I have wondered if moisture generated from lung power inflation will deteriorate the down insulation within. Overall I really like this and never leave home without it now.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from comfortable pad but noisy Effort to inflate is okay. Not too hard but wish it were a bit easier. Support provided when lying on it is very adequate. For me it was a little more comfortable when I inflated it fully and then let a little air out. Downside is that it is noisy. Whenever I or my partner moved it was loud. This noise is significant enough that were debating whether to return it or not.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Word - Comfortable A very comfortable and warm pad. Easy to pack and carry. Large enough to provide comfort to the whole body - no pressure points or sore spots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfort outweights weight I am side sleeper. Thin Thermarest just wouldn't do anymore so I invested in this after some research. It is heavier than thin air mats but the weight is worth it because my tent sleeping is infinitely more comfortable. Blowing air into the mat may cause mildew (the water in the breath). Invest in this little pump called MicroBurst by Camp Tek http://www.camp-tek.com/index.html This pump is really small and light weight. I use it to pump it up and then blow a couple of times to make the mat firm. I also bought an Alps Mountaineering foam mat (0.6" thick one) and cut down to 5' to be used in snow and cold condition (the cold will get thru the Q-core to hit you). A foam mat will also protect the Q-core from the ground contact. For easier repacking, I kneel on the mat to put pressure when folding it to push out as much air as possible and then I suck the remaining air out before closing the knob. The folded mat goes inside the mesh bag with no problem whatsoever.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of theMost Comfortable Pad on Market To aid in deciding to purchace: 1. Woks best when combined with Big Agnes sleeping system, when combined there is no sliding off. Ridges on edge keeps your body centered, great idea BA! Try it with a wide girth BA semi-rectangle Ultra Light down bag, and no more burrito mummy torture! 2. This is a max comfort pad with great loft for side sleepers and heavier people. If you have problems sleeping while you backpack because of padding this is the pad for you. Because it is for max comfort and loft it weighs more. 3. They now have an ultralight version, seems to have good reviews too, but not as much loft. 4. Have not noticed any noise, seems the same as other competing brands, I have tried them all, this has the most comfort.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best sleep on the trail so far If it just didn't take so much effort to blow it up it would be the perfect trail pad. I have tried many other trail pads and the Q-Core has given me the best sleep experience. I have tested it to 5 degrees coupled with a foam base pad and was toasty. If BA figures out a way to make it easier to inflate they will get 5 stars from me.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Like sleeping on a noisy cloud i recently spent 10 days in the wilderness of isle royale with a good buddy who owns this pad. his every little move at night was heard loud enough to awaken me from my solid nature slumber. like rubber on rubber friction. he purchased the Q-Core for the obvious reasons that it is comfortable, warm, lightweight and packed AMAZINGLY. i have no doubt he also slept amazingly every night. however, each morning before my first cup of coffee i secretly devised plans to sabotage this pad
