The Big Agnes System
Just as the Big Agnes air core sleeping pad fits the innovative company's Lost Ranger sleeping bag, the bag and pad fit the Big Agnes Seedhouse SL1 single person tent. It took me a couple of years to get this system together, but it was worth the wait. I bought the tent first and it's fine, with excellent customer support, from Steamboat Springs (CO), but my old bag and the rigid foam pad did not conform. The pad kept slipping sideways during the night, and I would find myself waking on the cold, hard tent floor. No slippage problem now: the full-length pad slips into the envelope of the bag, making unit that does not slip-slide around. This is in addition to the bright Big Agnes innovation of making the air-filled pad the bottom of the bag. It's warmer and lighter.

Most Comfortable Sleep Ever
I really loved this sleeping pad because of the comfort it provided during a 2 1/2 month camping trip and never getting any punctures. Inflating it took about 3 minutes and was definitely worth the extra time, no matter what surface our tent was on- rocks, grass, holes- I couldn't feel any of it. I was really careful about keeping it in the tent so I wouldn't get any holes and the one time I slept out of the tent I made sure to put something in between the pad and the ground. The pad provided good insulation from the ground, we camped in below freezing temperatures and I was not cold from the ground.

it's comfortable, lightweight, packs small, and keeps me warm. what's not to love? Big Agnes has designed a fantastic system, I'll never go back to traditional pads and bags.

Very Nice Mat
This is a very nice sleeping pad. Its super compact and very comfy. Combined with a BA bag, this thing is great. It takes quite a bit of air to fill this baby, but once you do you wont regret it. You do have to watch out for pine needles, not the most resistant outer material.
