Utilizing a unique "quilted" design, the lightweight and compact Big Agnes Insulated Q-Core inflatable sleeping pad combines warmth (R-value of 5.0) and comfort for year-round backpacking. An internal layer of X-Static synthetic insulation bolsters the rectangular Insulated Q-Core's thermal efficiency.
The Insulated Q-Core's lightweight, durable nylon rip-stop top and bottom have internal polyurethane coatings for waterproof protection. The alternating I-beam construction provides a smooth, comfortable feel and a full 4.0" of thickness. The construction and plastic valve allow the Insulated Q-Core pad to reach full inflation more quickly and easily than standard inflatable pads.
Designed to work in tandem with rectangular Big Agnes sleeping bags as well as other brands of bags, the Insulated Q-Core is available in Petite (20" x 66"), Regular (20" x 72"), Long (20" x 78") and Wide (25" x 78") dimensions.

- Light and Comfy
Likes: It's very light, blowing up by mouth and not with the ol sack of wind will tire you out (at least it did for me). But once blown up I'm 6 foot, and 200 pounds and it was pretty comfortable for being so light weight and packed down so small, I was very surprised!
- Best sleep ever!
Likes: This is the most comfortable sleeping pad ever made! I can't believe it is so big and comfortable but lightweight and packs down smaller than most. It is quiet when you move around as well unlike some competitors I've seen. I'm 5'9" and 300lbs, the wide fits me perfectly but the regular size was a bit narrow for anyone with some extra size. I bought one for me and my wife so maybe this will convince her to camp with me? Lol
Dislikes: Take a while to blow up but well worth it for the comfort!
- Wife loved it
Likes: Very warm for weight
- A blow up Cloud
Likes: 4 inches of cloud like goodness. Had a 2" big agnes pad and this is a great upgrade. Not field tested yet, but fit great in the Big Agnes Cabin creek bag (note it uses two pads)
Dislikes: none at this time.
Likes: Insulation, weight, compactability, lack of noise
Dislikes: Can't think of any negatives
Likes: What a sleeping pad. I had heard good things, but it truly exceeds expectations. You can't even tell if you are sleeping on rocks. The pad is thick, yet compact enough that it is not cumbersome when packed. Don't expect it to be as compact as others though, the largest size is 4 inches.
Dislikes: Being so thick, it takes a few minutes to inflate, and as a result, it isn't the easiest to squeeze all the air out of.
Likes: This is the best pad I have ever used, I'm a heavy guy with lower back issues and roll a lot. This pad allows me to sleep without discomfort.
Dislikes: Nothing at this time
Likes: This pad may be the most comfortable relatively lightweight pad I have ever used. the Construction keeps the air right under where you need it. As a 230lb side sleeper that is critical for a good night sleep.
Dislikes: nothing. I liked everything about the Q-Core Pad and have bought more for the rest of my family.
Likes: More comfortable than the REI Air Rail that I originally had.
Dislikes: Nothing yet.
Likes: This is the best sleeping pad I have used. It works for side sleepers, and provides enough cushion for old back injuries. Highly recommended.
