    Big Agnes Air Core Insulated Sleeping Padis rated4.0out of5by30.
    Rated4out of5byfromGreat to sleep on, bear to inflateBest pad around to sleep on but you'll get a workout in on inflating it. Also, they only last about 5 yrs and the nozzle starts to leak. Need to fix it to get 5 stars from me.

    Rated5out of5byfromJust RightI bought this a year ago, it is the best investment I have made for my camping needs. I highly recommend it! I got the long because I am 6' and its just the right size. What a difference it makes when sleeping. I always wake feeling well rested. I couldn't be happier.

    Rated3out of5byfromNot great! Quality varies.I got this as a Chirstams present to pair with my BA Lost ranger. I've spent 4 nights in it this spring in 30-40 degree temps here in the pacific northwet. First night I was a little cold and shed my baselayer to warm the pad, it worked. the second night I slept much warmer. The third night I felt cooler in warmer temps. By the fourth night on the pad it had developed a slow leak, I was very careful not to expose it to any sharp edges and spent the night reinflating it about every hour. So the leak and finding it really exposed some weaknesses of the pad. To find the leak I took it in the shower and the water made the fabric a little clearer so I could actually look inside the pad. The leak: was at the head of the pad on top right where a fold forms when inflated, not a complete puncture so its my belief that it came from stress at the fold and not a puncture. Now here is wher you need to pay attention to the insulation. It is a thin layer of prima loft glued to the inside of the pad on top and bottom. As I was looking for the leak I could see where the glue had come undone and the thin layers of prima loft had actually fallen down in the beams of the pad creating cold spots. I am a little disaponted in the quality of this pad as I own alot of BA gear and love it. I regret that I did recomend this pad to a friend after the first few nights on it. My other hiking buddies have this one and have no complaints so perhaps this is a fluke in the design. Either way I am not going to gamble on it and will look for another insulated pad. I will be returning this pad regretfully. I am giving it three stars because my friends love theirs, I am not in love with it so much and think I just got a bad one.

    Rated3out of5byfromUsed OnceI have only used this once, and it was very comfortable and not too hard to inflate, though it does take a couple minuets. My one con was that I did not find this very warm. It was like the material stayed cool from the cold air (it was around 36 degrees F.) It might have been my sleeping bag, but my lower body especially seemed cold from the pad. However, it did keep me from feeling thee ground even on my side, and was very comfortable. It also packs small and is lightweight. So, I might try it out again in the cold, but it might have to be just a summer pad.

    Rated4out of5byfromHelps relieve hip painSo I actually bought this for my sister...but I've since had to buy one for myself. After using a self inflating thermorest for 5 years, I decided to switch to this sleeping pad for myself and for her as a gift because I noticed a lot of hip pain while I was backpacking even on short 1-nighters. The culprit was my sleeping pad (I'm a side sleeper). Even though it takes more energy to blow it up, its worth getting a comfortable nights sleep. Plus, since its not inflatable its half the size of my thermarest pro for women. Not to mention, my boyfriend wants to upgrade because he has the same Big Agnes but its not insulated and he claims mine is so much warmer!

    Rated3out of5byfromGreat for now, but guaranteed to leakI've had this product for a couple years now. My wife has one, too. Out of the box this is a great product: it is warm and comfortable. Camping in the snow, I use this pad on top of a short foam pad and it is enough to keep my skinny frame warm. It is also comfortable (thick) enough so I don't wake up with lower back aches, which is what happens when I sleep on just the foam pad. However, after a decent amount of use (maybe 20 nights), I started waking up on the cold hard ground with the pad deflated below me. Then the leak rate accelerated and I would need to reinflate multiple times during the night (great way to annoy your tent mate). I tried repairing it, patching about a dozen small pinholes, but it would still leak. I sent it back to the company, and they were kind enough to send me a new one. Unfortunately, now my wife's Big Agnes Air Core Insulated is starting to leak. I patched it, but I don't even want to use it any more. After my experiences, I'm giving up on inflatable air mattresses. Why have such unreliable gear? Besides the inevitable slow leak, you can't use an air mattress in thorny/desert environments where it might get pricked. And you can't simply throw it down and sit on it during winter snack breaks like you can with a foam pad - especially if you're wearing crampons! The extra comfort an air mattress provides is just not worth the hassle. So I give this product an average of 3 stars: 5 for the first dozen nights, 1 star for the rest of its useless life.

    Rated5out of5byfromMade the girlfriend happyFor motorcycle camping, I usually use a hammock and coleman air mattress. Girlfriend was having none of that. I bought 2 of these and a camlock ratchet to hold two of these together for use with a doubles sleeping bag. Not as comfortable as a queen coleman air mattress, but much better insulated. Product doesn't leak and is of great build quality.

    Rated4out of5byfromWorked WellWorked well. Very Warm in 30 degree temps. A little slippery when I used it with my hammock. Slides around a bit when you move.
