Review by godseye on Jun. 16, 2008
This pad does exactly as it say's it does. It keeps you warm and cozy down to 15f. It is rugged enough for uneven, rocky, and root prone terrain. I have been using mine for a year and have not had any problems out of the hardware or the fabric. This is not one of those pads that you wake up on the ground on. I have never once lost air out of it and intentionally have to not blow it up all the way so it isn't rock solid all night. You should be able to catch them on sale fairly regular
As long as you don't plan on seeing temperatures below 15f there is no need for anything else.

Review by climbhigher on Nov. 04, 2007
As for comfort I don't believe I could find myself a better more suited pad. The time it takes to inflate this beast it is well worth it. The pad comes in weight pretty light considering the amount of comfort.
If you are planning on using this pad in the cold weather I would not recommend it. Since the pad is air cored there is no means of insulation between you and the ground.
If you are looking for a pad that will give you the same comfort in a 4 season situation check out the Exped Downmats.

Review by merlesray on Jun. 30, 2008
Comfy! No sore hips or shoulders for this side sleeper.
Noisy to adjust on, like a pool raft. Also tends to scoot out from under me as I roll over in my sleep.
Probably a good idea to use the BA sleeping bag that goes with the pad.

Works wonders as a flotation device. Also, useful in the event of having to sleep outdoors.

I sleep in multiple positions through the night and everyone of them is superbly comfortable thanks to this pad. See you later 0.5" self-inflating mattresses.

Very nice pad, no bottom out with the 2.5" thickness although it does seam narrow but I think it is do to the thickness difference from other pads I have used. Easy to inflate/deflate and packs small and light.

Review by spurg1 on Mar. 20, 2011
Love this pad. Gave me my first really comfortable nights sleep on the ground. I originally bought it for insulating the bottom of my hammock (not perfect for this). Hard to find a thicker pad with less bulk than this. As for cold weather its fine, on the ground (not in the hammock).
A little noisy when moving around on it and night. Getting the air out is a little frustrating but manageable.

Review by San Dog Scotty on Aug. 15, 2008
This works pretty well, especially since I sleep on my side alot it makes it a lot more comfortable.
Could get a leak and if you're too lazy to blow it up then go for Thermarest.

Review by scottydo on Sep. 02, 2008
Comfy and rolls up very tightly.
Noisy, if you're lazy and don't like blowing things up then this isn't for you either. Could get a leak to render it useless.

Review by killfist on Jul. 07, 2011
This sleeping pad is lightweight and yet durable enough to withstand sleeping on rocks. I thought I would wake up on the ground before the night was over. Four day hiking through the Minami Alps in Japan; cold, wet and windy. Great camping weather, without this pad I would have been much colder. I am in love with Big Agnes!!

Review by sawdustfeet on Sep. 06, 2011
Less expensive, lighter, and packs smaller than other leading brands; amazing insulation on cold nights, but also somehow keeps you comfortable during the warmer ones, too; very durable; I love this pad.
You do have to blow it up, but it really only takes a few minutes. Sit back enjoy the view of your campsite, and before long, it's fully blown up.

Review by veitski87 on Sep. 07, 2011
light, packs small, durable, nice color, comes with sack and repair kit
like all pads it deflates slowly through the night but the worst thing about this pad is that it takes too long too much energy to blow up and too long to deflate and roll up
this is not a bad buy, just be patient with the set up. but the expeds aren't bad!

Review by 15dbarber on Apr. 18, 2012
very thick and very compact and versitle
works great with Big agnes bags, but with other bags you slide around
add some fots of seam grip on the baffles and it shouild help
