Comments about Big Agnes Insulated Air Core Mummy Pad - Short - 2012 Closeout:
***I have not field tested this item yet***
I recently made the switch from my bulky external frame pack to a sleek internal frame pack. To accompany this pack change, I had to upgrade several pieces of gear including my closed cell foam pad for this Big Agnes Insulated Air Core Mummy Pad.
A friend first bought two of these pads after doing some research on inflatable pads. I got to try one out during a snow camp and was satisfied with the product enough to buy my own.
This Big Agnes pad weighs over 6 oz more than the closed cell foam pad but packs down to about a fourth of the size. The sturdy brass valve allows for inflating within minutes and is much better than those plastic valves that one has to pinch to inflate. Air won't leak from the valve until the pad is nearly full and then you simply twist the plastic cover closed. This valve design also makes it easy to adjust the amount of air to comfort.
And this pad is comfortable. Pressure points are reduced allowing one to sleep comfortably on their sides. The material is soft and slippery.
It seems durable as well. The inclusion of a generous patch kit within the stuff sack bumps up the durability rating.
(Note: I purchased the "Petite" size for the weight and cost savings. I'm 6'2" and about a foot of my body extends beyond the pad. For most excursions I don't expect this to be an issue, but on snow camps I'll likely pair the Big Agnes with the closed cell foam pad.)
