Positive Reviews:

I had been lusting after a friend's BA Sleeping Giant for a few years and FINALLY pulled the trigger on one of my own. I have an extra wide Therm-a-rest that I already use for car camping (it's an older model, I think it's called the CampLight?) that is 25inches wide. So I got the wide/long version of the Sleeping Giant and it's a perfect fit. I have never slept so well in a tent!
I have also used my ultralight/backpacking POE sleeping pad in there for times when we are on our way to a backpacking trip, but still have one or two nights car camping before we get to the start of our intended hike/backpack. And then leave the Sleeping Giant in car while we are off in the woods/desert.
Sure it takes up space, but if you have room in the car, it makes your sleep much more sound! I also find that the memory foam WILL squish down pretty small, so if you have a little bit of extra space in a duffel, you can cram it in there and then it really doesn't take as much extra space as you'd think.
I have also compared this to the Therm-a-rest dreamtime and think BA's quality is MUCH better, and they paid a lot more attention to detail.

Great Comfort Product.

If you want a comfortable night's sleep, combine this with a Big Agnes Q-Core and you're set. Some people on here have complained about a few things. Let me set those issues straight. Regarding size: This pad WILL fit any Big Agnes sleeping pad. The Q-Core SL is 3+ inches and it fits easily into it. Regarding surface: This is made to slide into a Big Agnes sleeping bag so the more slippery surface is intentional, or else it would be a pain to get into the bag. Coming from someone who has a Big Agnes bag, I wouldn't want it any other way.

The only reason this memory foam pad didn't get a perfect 5/5 from me is because of the net sack it comes with. It is a similar sack as the various sleeping pads from Big Agnes but because of the larger size, the only way to carry this is on the exterior of your rucksack. It is therefore exposed to the elements and being memory foam, you don't want it getting wet. Big Agnes should've included a water proof carrying sack so you could strap it to the outside of your rucksack without having to purchase a 3rd party sack.

Just what your 2.5

I got this to use with a different brand of 2.5" self-inflating pad and my Big Agnes "The Lost Ranger" sleeping bag. I love Big Agnes' pad-pocket system and had to give this memory foam "upgrade" a try.

Loading the inflatable pad into the memory foam pad's sleeve is easy, but loading it all into the sleeping bag will be somewhat awkward. If you're using a Big Agnes or other pad-pocket bag, you'll want to use an inflatable no thicker than 2.5". Any thicker and it won't fit with this memory foam pad. Memory foam comes in different densities; higher densities generally feel "cushier" but also weigh more. This pad is middle to lighter density so it's not too heavy to load onto a backpack.

Not only does it feel very comfortable and supportive, it helps boost the insulation against the cold of the ground.

While the mesh stuff sack it comes with is good for storage purposes, I'd rather use it with a more protective dry sack or siliconized sack.

A must for car camping!

While preparing for a summer of living out of my truck (for field work), I found myself searching for something to beef up my sleeping pad without having to go out a buy a new, $200 deluxe pad. I came across this puppy and snatched it up. Don't let the 3/4 inch foam fool you-- it's just the right amount of padding to make your standard pad feel pretty cush. The bed of my truck has a hard plastic liner with grooves that run from front to back, so it's not the most comfortable surface to sleep on. This new foam pad along with my therm-a-rest makes for an excellent night's sleep. I can even sleep comfortably on my side! Something I could never do with a single pad on the ground. All that being said, I would not recommend using it for backpacking unless you have a Sherpa. Or try to use it on its own. It is definitely meant to be used with another pad.

Let me say that this is not 3.5inches thick as advertised. Mine barely comes in at an inch thick. I am truly disappointed. ~After a reply to a question from Kirk Haskell I have raised my review by 1 star. The measurement is with the inner pad inserted, giving this pad a 1" thickness~I tested one at a Big Agnes tent with an Air Core Pad underneath and was sold. I then noticed a 45lb weight directly underneath the pad that I had not noticed(it was to hold the tent down). On the pad I tested, it combined with the Air Core to become a thick pad of luxury that I marveled at. It rolls up loosely to around the same size as a Therm-a-Rest Ridge Rest. Mummy shape saves ounces but still provides the comfort where you need it. Thankful that they sell a long as well. Haven't found a more comfortable pad system when combining with an Air Core.

works like a dream :)

I'm a recent convert to the Big Agnes way of doing things... I had a Thermorest prior to this and I couldn't side sleep on that thing. I am now using a Big Agnes Q-core insulated along with a sleeved bag and I decided to throw this memory foam on top just for the heck of it. It's comfy, no doubt. To save some weight, I ordered the 20" wide even though my pad is 25" wide, so I am unable to insert the pad into this foam cover like it is supposed to be done, but it works fine for me. It's not like I sleep on the edges of the pad anyhow, so I don't see any issues with using the smaller size. I haven't packed it on a long trip, so I don't know if it will be worth it's weight, but we will see.

Great Addition to an Excellent Pad

Combine this cushion pad with the Big Agnes long & wide pad and put it inside the wide and long Big Agnes "Deer Park"30 degree down sleeping, oh, are in for a most comfortable sleep. Now, this is all not very cheap but if you're serious about doing things right, this combination is the best, bar none. No more sliding off your pad several times a night and the width and length gives one enough room to change position/stretch out. My wife and I got the right and left bags, we connect the two systems, and it is as good as it can get. Period.

The title says it all - because I am usually cold I got the Dual Core sleeping pad - 2.5" on it's own is really comfortable, adding the extra inch on this for 3.5" of sleeping magic is pretty sweet. It makes car camping more comfortable than sleeping at home (stars are always better than ceilings). I like that the inflatable portion zips into the memory foam portion as well so there is no sliding around. If this were wider I might just get rid of my bed entirely... maybe Big Agnes can come up with a 2-person version?

For backpacking, I have a Big Agnes air core and a Big Agnes insulated air core. When I go car camping with my wife, we each slip one of those into one of these. (The foam pad, obviously, is meant to go on top of the air mattress, not under it!) We are both side sleepers, and the combination is as close to a bed as either of us has ever slept on inside a tent. As someone else said, despite the weight and bulk, I've been tempted to tote this along even for backpacking. It's that comfortable.

Borrowed one of these from a friend and after that it was all over, I had to have one.
Foam adds that little extra touch you need to get a good night sleep just about anywhere. Definitely a piece of gear for car camping, as it's too large / bulky to backpack with.
I'll reiterate the notes above: this is a sleeping pad COVER. You'll need an inflatable pad to put inside this cover. I use a mummy-shaped ThermaRest ProLite inflatable pad.
Best $$ you'll spend to sleep like a baby in your tent or the bed of your truck.

Negative Reviews:

Very disappointed it is not 3.5" as stated. It doesn't say anywhere that these are the dimensions with another pad inserted. Nor should it give the dimensions with a pad, because it depends directly on the thickness of the pad you put in.
I did buy a BA insulated aircore with it , but counted on adding the 3.5" to the 2.5" of the pad. Another disappointement was that I thought it was a self inflatable one. Teaches me to stick to my old motto of not buying stuff on impuls even if it's on sale.
Debating wheher to actually try them this weekend or send them back immediately for misrepresentation.
BTW: I've been camping and backpacking for decades, and this setup is intended for car camping, so this is not a beginner's inexperienced buy.

This is really a sleeping pad cover and not a pad as described. Don't use alone or you'll be sleeping on the ground... Adds some comfort to a pad though so great for what its designed for.

Adam D at on 06/11/2012

Great concept, poor execution

Excellent possibility for the comfort I need to sleep well. However the incredibly slippery top cover guarantees a sleepless night. Agnes what were you thinking?

It works okay when combined with the air mattress. Rather large to pack and very expensive. Find something at 1/3 the price.
