Comfort. Dependability. Guaranteed Quality.
Comfort starts from the ground up and for nearly 20 years, we’ve been committed to making the ground as comfortable as possible. We make a variety of sleeping pads and pad covers available in different shapes and lengths and thickness to give you options for different temperature ranges, sleeping surfaces, backpack sizes and inflation methods. No matter which model you choose, we’ve designed it with comfort, warmth, and durability in mind. All of our pads have been individually inflated and tested and come with a stuff sack or compression strap and nearly all models include a repair kit. New for 2020 we’re including a third-party R-Value rating with each pad to give you scientific data so you have as much info as possible to choose the right one We believe our pads are stronger, lighter, and warmer because why settle for less?
Hips don’t lie.
They shouldn't lie on the ground that is. Give ’em the cush backcountry bed they deserve.
No matter which model you choose, we’ve designed it with comfort and durability in mind. Big Agnes air pads aren't just a fad, they aren't a glorified pool toy either. We literally breathed air into sleeping pads when we bucked the self-inflating pad trend in 2005 and put 3.25"- 4.25" of cushy inflation between campers and the hard ground. And the revolution continues today with the most comfortable, lightweight, packable pads on the planet. Our product team is constantly searching for materials, insulations, and designs to lighten the load without sacrificing the air-cushion comfort we are known for. All of our pads have been individually inflated and tested and come with a stuff sack or compression strap and nearly all models include a repair kit.
What is an R-value?
A sleeping pad is a necessary part of your sleep system. Yes, our pads provide bed-like comfort from rocks and dirt, but more importantly, they insulate you from the ground up. All Big Agnes pads feature a proven R-Value. It’s a rating that shows the insulating properties of a sleeping pad. Summer camping at low elevation – look for a lower R-Value. Camping Spring through Fall – look for a R3 or higher. In simple terms – the higher the number the warmer the pad.
Did you know we take our pad valves so seriously? When you think about it, they should be so quick and easy to use that you shouldn't have think about it. All three styles of our valves offer easy and efficient inflation (especially when using a Pumphouse pad pump), micro-adjustment function so you can get the exact firmness you desire, and quick deflation so you can get up and get on your way faster. Just one more way we're making camping comfy again.
