Stay warmer and travel lighter with the Big Agnes Insulated AXL Air Sleeping Pads Constructed using PrimaLoft Silver insulation and a heat reflecting barrier to preserve body heat and keep you comfy all night long.
Big Agnes says:
Simply put, this is the most comfortable and lightest ultralight three-season pad you can put in your pack.
Designed with gram counters, thru hikers, and technical gear junkies in mind, the Insulated AXL Air combines a high-tenacity proprietary nylon rip-stop shell with internal minimalist construction that maximizes every ounce's stability and comfort. With larger outer tubes, this pad keeps you cradled on top, while the PrimaLoft Silver® insulation, working with the heat reflective barrier, traps body heat and reflects it back so you stay comfy as the temperatures drop.
Save room and weight in your pack for other backcountry essentials, since you won't even know the Insulated AXL Air is in there.
Big Agnes have been regularly tweaking its line of inflatable sleeping pads for the last few years, and we think that with the Insulated AXL Air mats, they have really created something special.
I'm not going to repeat all the tech specs as you can read it in the description but the main thing you need to know is that they have used PrimaLoft Silver insulation and a heat reflecting barrier in these mats to preserve body heat and keep you comfy all night long. These ultralight and compact 3 season mats pack down to around the size of a drinks can (or slightly larger depending on the mat size you choose), so you'll hardly notice it in your pack.

|Help and advice: |
From 2020, there is a new industry standard for measuring the R-value (level of insulation) of sleeping mats – ASTM F3340-18. This new standard is the sleeping mat equivalent to the EN rating for sleeping bags.
You can now directly compare the R-value of mats rated using the ASTM F3340-18 with confidence that is a fair and accurate comparison between mats. In simple terms, the higher the R-value, the warmer the mat.
In general terms, an R-value below 2.0 is for summer use, 2.0 to 4.0 is for cooler 3 season use and 4.0+ is for winter temperatures. This will be also be dependent on your sleeping bag, how cold you sleep etc. Please contact our customer service team if you need advice on choosing the right mat for your activity.
