      I'll cast my vote for the Big Agnes Insulated Air Core pad, as well. I used it on the JMT last year and slept like a baby, warm and cushy!

      Oohh, thank you.  I’ve been reading up on that one too.  There were a couple of comments about puncture failures – but sounds like it’s a winner for you.  I’m checking it out – any special model?  Barbara

      Hi Barbara,

      I know you are a regular here, I seem to come and go with the seasons. I have done the JMT twice and the HST once. I have had many self inflating pads over the years, they all worked and kept me warm but never overly comfortable. 4 years ago I discovered the Big Agnes insulated Air Core pad. I absoulutely love it! Yes, I do have to spend 2 short minutes blowing it up, but for an all night warm comfortable sleep it is all worth it.
