The skinny on sleeping pads - posted 1 week ago

Big Agnes makes great insulated pads that have varying degrees of insulation and loft. I saw the Q-Core mentioned early, and it is a terrific pad. Being 3 1/2 inches thick when inflated, it allows you to set the firmness of the loft to give you the best comfort without coming into contact with the ground. It's R-Value sets it at +15 degrees, and that provides excellent protection from the cold coming up from underneath you. I use one in combination with a Enlightened Equipment Revelation 0 Degree quilt, and have never been cold, even on the harshest trips. My sleep system weighs less than three pounds. Next to my Zamberlan boots, It's the best part of my backcountry setup.

R-Value is also an important consideration. Wish it had been included in the article.
