Big Agnes Insulated Air Core Pad with PrimaLoft Eco is the first sleeping pad to incorporate one of the outdoor industry's premier insulation materials to provide added warmth. Designed for those seeking an air pad suitable for 3-Season use, these 3.5 inch thick pads share the same I-beam construction of the original Air Core pad, but use a lighter, 40 denier fabric. The stuffed size and weight on these pads are still smaller than any self-inflating foam pad. This extra wide pad is ideal for the Big Agnes Park Series bags and people who like a larger pad to sleep on. For an excellent night's sleep in the backcountry, try the Award Winning Big Agnes Insulated Air Core Pads. Available in mummy and rectangular cut.
The Insulated Air Core is a trusted friend and perennial best seller.
Light and compact, this three season pad will keep you comfortable by utilizing I-beam Construction (vertical channels that run the length of the pad) and larger outer chambers that keep you cradled in the center of the pad. Insulated air core pads are an excellent companion to Big Agnes System bags, coming in enough shapes and sizes to work well with everything from kids bags to our extra wide Park bags.
Light and compact three season pad, with 3.25" of comfort. PrimaLoft™ Synergy: synthetic insulation. Larger outsider air chambers keep you cradeled in the middle of the pad. I-beam construction eliminates welded seams to reduce cold spots and ensures quick inflation/deflation, consistent air flow and stability. Durable, lightweight 70D nylon diamond rip-stop top and bottom. Durable inflation valve. Internal polyurethane coating. Add a closed cell foam pad in colder temperatures for extra insulation. Store unrolled with valve open. Includes stuff sack and repair kit. The repair kit is in a small pocket on the inside of the stuff sack. It's sort of hidden, so look twice!

I really wanted to love this sleeping pad. It's unbelievably comfortable, warm, and lightweight. And it seemed pretty durable too, but despite being very careful near sharp rocks and vegetation, I've had 2 of these pads develop leaks in the past 3 years. The first one went while camping in Acadia Nat'l Park in Maine, the second in the middle of 2 months in Alaska! Luckily I usually bring a foam pad along too (to help prevent sharp rocks from digging into the pad, ironically). I was unable to locate/patch the leaks so I've just sent them back to BC. I switched to a ThermaRest pad that is a bit lighter but thinner and not quite as comfortable. We'll see how well that holds up in comparison.
I've only used this pad a few times, but I have been completely pleased so far. First off, I was worried about how long it would take to inflate, but it really wasnt a problem for a small guy. Next, I've never used it in rain, but when I woke up in the morning and everything was covered in dew, this pad wasn't holding any moisture. Finally, each time I used it I was sleeping on the dirt, and I have had no issues with punctures, tears, or rips.
So basically, so far so good!
This is my first sleeping pad I've ever bought and used it for the first time on an 8 day canoeing/camping trip in Maine. It was very comfortable and kept me dry even when it poured rain and we got puddles in our tent :) I was surprised how easily it blew up (I'm a 5'4, 125lb 17 year old, I was able to blow it up in about 3-5 minutes each night). It was also very compact once rolled up which was nice. Overall, great purchase!
Having started camping in the 70's in floorless button together Army surplus tents, cotton thin sleeping bags and wool blankets underneath for padding. I have tried a variety of pads and finally gave up tent camping as that pebble always became a boulder at 2 am. This is awesome. Can't roll off of it, cause it is part of the bag. Awesome. Not noisy to sleep on, comfortable, great nights sleep. Can't even feel the pebble. I bought it with the Encampment BA bag. Great combination.
I hate this sleeping pad. I've had 2 of them (I thought my first one might have been a dud). My fiance had one a little while ago also.
Every one failed and failed quickly from a valve issue.
Now, granted, ever air pad is a ticking time bomb, but this one especially. Unless there has been a massive valve redesign project, I'd be wary.
I've had a much better experience with the Thermarest NeoAir trekker. It failed too, but after a couple of years of frequent use instead of a couple weeks/months.
Originally purchased the previous version, and while I loved it, it developed way too many holes with minimal use. I returned it for this version, and have been pleased thus far. Its nice and thick while inflated, providing a pretty good nights sleep; then it packs down pretty small in the morning. No problems after 2 trips; here's to hoping this (blue) version holds up better than the last(brown). Will revise review after my next 2 trips.
