Big Agnes Q-Core SL - Rectangular Reviews:


Great for side sleepers

I am a side sleeper. My hip dug through my 2.5 inch non-insulated pad, waking me up when it got too cold. I thought about the regular QCore, but it was too heavy for me. But the QCore SL is perfect. Regular size is listed at 18oz, but mine weighs 19.75oz including stuff sack and a repair kit.

It is 23" wide before inflation. But it is so thick that the width does shrink to 18.5" when inflated. This could be a problem for back sleepers due to arms/elbows falling off the sides. This is an excellent pad for side sleepers, where thickness and insulation are important.

About the Q pattern. I don't know exactly how it is constructed, but it feels more like a regular mattress. Most other pads feel like the rows of tubes that they are. But this just feels more like a normal bed.

Also, the fabric feels very sturdy. I also checked out the NeoAir Xlite, but it seems much more fragile, and very loud/crinkly. I really wanted to like the Xlite due to the weight, but went with the QCore SL instead and am happy with my choice.

almost perfect

I wish it were textured as to reduce sliding between the the tent floor and the pad as-well-as between the pad and my sleeping bag
