I have been dayhiking/backpacking in California since 2006, mostly in
the Sierra Nevada, in the coastal ranges in winter, and into low
elevation parks such as Henry Coe. I have been out at least monthly,
several times a month in spring and summer, and usually carry a
Test Plan: I have a backpacking trip (minimum) every month of the
year, and a two week high Sierra journey coming up this year as well
as weekend outings, and a kayak campout or two as well. I encounter
temperatures down to freezing (and sometimes below) at night, and I
love a nice comfortable sleeping pad. As a side sleeper I prefer a
little more thickness - I am interested to find out whether the Q-
Core is also enough insulation for my usual high elevation, lower
night temperature travels. Durability is also important. I'd rather
not find myself sleeping on granite!
My thanks to Big Agnes and Backpack Gear Test for their consideration.
