      by fromVery noisy pad I have had the Q-Core SL for over a year, and while it has served me well in cold temperatures, there is one very serious problem with this sleeping pad. It is incredibly noisy. Sure, it's it's not as noisy as the crinkling Neo Air, but it comes in close second. On my last three trips, others in my camp site have complained that they can hear me moving around all night long, as if I were sleeping on a giant bag of Doritos. The final straw was my wife on my last trip literally told me I needed to take this pad back, or else she wasn't going to be able to share my tent any more. haha! Okay, done deal with that one. The pad is very durable. It's very light weight. It has a decent R-value. But in addition to the noise problem, the Regular 20" wide pad actually comes in under 20 inches when inflated. I find myself spending more time focusing on balancing on this pad than actually sleeping. If you can put up with the noise and need some more room... get the long wide version.

      by fromLOUD I really wanted to like this sleeping pad. I love Big Agnes gear and expected this to meet it's standards. The positive is that it is very light and small packed up which is perfect for backpacking. Although very comfortable there were two things that were a deal breaker. The material used is so loud and noisy. On it's first backpacking trip, every time I moved I disturbed my camping mates in the next tent! They made me promise I would return this pad as soon as I got home. It was so noisy that it was bothering me as well, and I wear ear plugs. It also was very narrow. That may be because the thicker inches took up some width when blown up. I would have adjusted to that if it was the only problem. Too bad, because the pad itself is pretty comfortable with the tufted surface as opposed to the tube effect. Hopefully Big Agnes will rectify these problems because the idea is great.

      by fromComfortable, but SUPER noisy. This is a comfortable pad in terms of lift from the ground. It feels like a inflatable air mattress at grandma's house. I feel a lot of cold, and this pad kept me very warm in chilly nights camping in PA fall and Iceland late spring. Yes, it's narrow like some reviewers have commented. But as a petite lady, I got used to it quickly enough. The problem was that I had to fix a leak once, and now it is leaking (again, or still?). I can't find the problem, but mostly I don't feel the urge to fix it, because... ... This pad is too noisy. The first few times I used it, I woke up from my own moving around because the pad crinkles so loudly. Once I was used to it, I was reminded of it again by a stranger. I went solo-camping and another camper at the campground asked if I was comfortable with my pad "because he could hear me moving around at night". (keep in mind, they were camped a couple spots away from me). That felt very embarrassing. Unfortunately, I can't recommend this pad and will be looking for a replacement.

      by fromLight and Comfy!! I wanted a light, comfortable, warm sleeping pad that was durable and quiet. This fits the bill perfectly. I like the way the thicker tubes on the sides hold you on the pad. I'm 6', 180 lbs and it fits me fine.

      by fromPretty Good The pad was comfortable to sleep on other than I put too much air in it so it was a little to hard for me. The worse part is the width, 20". This was the size that fit the Big Agnes sleeping bag, but every time I rolled over, I felt like I was going to fall off of it and I'm a side sleeper.

      by fromPacks up small I purchased this pad to replace an older pad from a different manufacturer. I was a little Leary about purchasing this pad because the material it's made out of is so thin. I was originally attracted to this pad because it packs so small and inflates so thick. I've used the pad about a half dozen times and so far it's worked great. The pad is very thick and I'm able to inflate it to achieve the firmness I like. I'm a big guy at 240 lbs and this pad has the thickness/firmness to keep me off of the ground. I'm also very happy with how small this pad packs down. So far the only drawback is the amount of time and air that's required to fill it. For me that was not a problem but for someone looking for an easy fill pad this may not be for you.

      by fromLove this pad! Lightweight and comfy I decided to splurge a little and pick up the Q Core SL. It packs down so small (size of a nalgene) and weight about 1lb. Lying on the Grand Canyon floor this made my bed so comfortable. The Rvalue is fair but in combination with my bag I slept very warm on a 31 degree night with no chills.

      by fromVery comfortable This pad was very comfortable. I used it with my new LuLu +15 women's sleeping bag. The only trouble I had with this pad was I was unable to roll it up compactly to fit back into the storage bag.
