Big Agnes Insulated Air Core Rectangular Pad - Long 78in. x 20in.

Item #: 28958

Our Price: $99.95


The Big Agnes insulated Air Core Pad is a Backpacker Magazine Editor's Choice Award Winner. Designed for those that covet ultra light, compact gear; they are not self inflating, but in a few breaths you will enjoy out of this world comfort.
  • 3.25" thick, 3.5 season Air Core pad filled with PrimaLoft™ eco synthetic insulation for a 15 deg. Temperature rating and an R-Value of 4.1.
  • PrimaLoft™ Eco insulation is a synthetic insulation made from 70% recycled materials.
  • Longer length pad is lightweight at 24 oz. and packs to a small, compact 6" x 10", about the size of a Nalgene bottle.
  • If used in a Big Agnes sleeping bag, the pad can be deflated, left in the pad sleeve and stuffed in the sleeping bag stuff sack.
  • The rectangular shape is 20" wide x 78" long X 3.25" thick.
  • Unique construction technique prevents the insulation from shifting inside the air chambers.
  • The I-beam construction technique is functionally superior to the typical welded-through construction of other air mats. Die cut holes in each I-beam allow air to flow freely between chambers giving constant support and comfort.
  • I-beam construction makes inflation quick and easy.
  • Durable, lightweight 50 denier diamond nylon ripstop top and bottom.
  • Durable, water repellent (DWR) coating sheds water and stains.
  • Prima Loft features a silicone treatment which serves as an anti-microbial within the pad.
  • Internal polyurethane (PU) coating makes pad waterproof.
  • Lightweight, durable plastic valve.
  • Insulated Air Core Pads come with a stuff sack and repair kit.
  • Color: Blue/Black
  • Import.

    Comments about Big Agnes Insulated Air Core Rectangular Pad - Long 78in. x 20in.:

    Much easier on the back and joints than roll-up pads yet very lightweight.

    Comments about Big Agnes Insulated Air Core Rectangular Pad - Long 78in. x 20in.:

    I originally had a BA Insulated Air Core that developed a micro leak which, through diligent effort, I was unable to locate. So I took it back to the outfitter box store where I had purchased it and got their name brand. After one night of a trial run in my backyard I took it back and repurchased the 25" Insulated Air Core and do not ever expect to have any other pad than a BA.

    So when Christmas rolled around I purchased a 20"x 78" Air Core for my wife and son for our adventures. I am a bit disappointed that neither has a brass valve (as mine does) although this will not affect function. It just seems to be a compromise in quality.

    From my rookie perspective, there seems to be a movement toward comfort in backpacking. Lightweight stuff for sure but people, especially oldish folks like me, want to walk comfortable AND sleep comfortable. This pad is certainly part of that formula.

    Finally, I apologize to English teachers everywhere but the PowerReviews wouldn't accept my edits of "inflatir" and "Ba". Alas.
