Big Agnes Insulated Q-Core Sleeping Pad
If you are willing to spend a few extra bucks to sleep in seemingly impossible comfort during your backcountry treks, look no further than the Q-Core. An alternating horizontal and vertical tubing system makes this pad a standout favorite with backpackers. This unique design adds extra support and helps distribute your weight evenly, essentially with a feel more like a comfy bed than an air mattress.
As an added bonus, the silver filament in the pad's insulation reflects your body heat to promote increased warmth while you sleep. The Q-Core is available in four different sizes with weights ranging from 25 to 36 ounces. Inflating this pad using your lungs takes time but a 1.5-ounce pump sold separately can speeds up the process.
