The Big Agnes Q Core SLX Sleeping Pad is a superlight sleeping pad for 3 season backpacking. Nice and light when you stuff it in your pack and incredibly cushy when it's time to lay down for sleep. Sleeping on the ground is a whole new ball game when it comes to the quilted top with offset I-Beams, providing support and cushion. When it comes to colder nights in camp, the insulation and heat reflective technology can't be seen, but they can certainly be felt and appreciated. You'll know because instead of shivering on the cold ground, you'll be snoozing like a baby.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Upgrade , but not happy I asked for a replacement for my super noisy Q-Core pad and got sent this pad as the replacement. I'm not sure they really read my original issue, the noise. It's disappointing because I really want to stand behind Big Agnes, but this SLX pad is just as noisy. So when on a trip with friends, I have to hear all the complaints in the morning about my pad. :-( For comfort, its great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pad! Just noisy Packs small. Inflates/deflates very well. Holds air perfectly in my experience. i'm 6'2/230 and the 25"x78"wide version is perfectly roomy for me, i love the size. It is a loud beast though. I camp with it in a Copper Spur HV UL2 tent (1 is too tight with my dogs). On a recent backpacking trip through Yosemite, the group joked they didn't have to worry about bears because if I laid down on, rolled over on, or even looked at my sleeping pad it would scare all the wildlife away haha. Even if I just lifted my head up while on the pad it was crazy noisy. I actually came back onto the site to see if there was a backpacker friendly pad cover, like a pillow case with no memory foam, i suspect that may be enough to isolate the noise. the cause of the noise is between the tent floor and pad from what I can tell. I haven't tested it in another tent, but since my tent is Big Agnes, it shouldn't matter? I will test it again with a sheet wrapped around it to see if that remedies the issue. Until then, I'm not sure i can recommend it although i do like it, assuming the noise issue can be addressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Ever !!! I'm 6'3" & weigh 220lbs. ordered the Long/Wide version. Fits me perfectly. The extra thickness of this pad keeps me up off the ground with ease, & I'm a heavy side sleeper. Plenty of room to roll over also & move around. The extra thick side baffles are a genius design. Big Agnes hit a homerun with this pad. It fits nicely in my Big Agnes Rattlesnake SL1 tent also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best night's sleep I've had in the woods! I love that these pads come in wider sizes - at 6'1", the wide regular is heaven sent and still packs super lightweight. The wider baffles on the edge keep me cradled on the pad, so I wake up without the back pain I used to get after a night on closed cell pads. Specifically, I like the Q-Core over other models because of its quilted top, which is a great comfort enhancer. I'm looking forward to pairing it with a closed-cell foam pad in the winter to see how it holds up to the Northern winter!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lightweight, very comfortable, but... I would love this pad if it weren't for the noise. It's very comfortable and very lightweight. And I love the dual valves that make it easy and quick to blow up. But it's SO noisy. It would be great if I were out camping alone. Even okay that my wife and I wake each other up every time one of us rolls over. But on group trips, we become the annoying folks because we wake everyone else in camp every time we move.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best weight to comfort ratio out there! I'm a side sleeper, and despite my best efforts to adjust for back country sleeping, I cannot sleep any other way. The Q core has an incredible near 3 inches of air cushion and a weight coming in at just over a pound. It packs small, is light, but most of all is extreemely comfortable. I ordered the long size as i am rather tall. I have only had the pad for a few weeks, so i can comment on durability, but even the trade off for durability and comfort/weight in this case would be worth it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's just. so. squeaky I wanted to love this sleeping pad. It's light, compact, and easy to pack. It's pretty comfortable for a small and lightweight pad, but every time I moved at night, it made enough noise to wake up both me and anyone sleeping in a tent near me. It became a running joke on a recent backpacking trip with a few friends, so unless I want to alienate all of my camping buddies, I'm going to have to find a new pad.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buy this only if you love sleeping on hard ground I have owned this pad for about a year. I have taken it out on two trips lasting a total of 10 days. I have slept on hard ground for 10 days. I am a side sleeper and the prospect of my shoulder and hips not digging into the ground every night was enticing. When I first opened it I thought "Hmmm, this feels a little flimsy. But I paid over $160 for this, BA makes good tents, this must be just paranoia". So I take it out on my first trip and in the middle of the night I am sleeping on hard ground. Since I camp off-trail in the desert a lot I thought that I must have not cleaned up my campsite sufficiently well. Unfortunately the leak was very slow, I was not able to locate it without having to sacrifice a lot of the water I was carrying, so I had four more uncomfortable nights to look forward to. When I came back home I found the leak... on the front side of the pad. I chalked it up to bad luck, patched it, and forgot about it. Fast forward another 10-11 months during which I was using a Therm-a-Rest Trekker without a hint of a problem. A few weeks ago I decide to take the BA for another spin. As a precaution I pull it out, inflate, load with some weight and let it sit overnight. No issues, so I take it for another spin in the desert. First night... I wake up in the middle of the night on the ground. I send a few choice words BA's way and try to make the best of it. In the morning I spend time hunting for leaks on the backside of the pad and am unable to find any. I am once again faced with the prospect of four uncomfortable nights. Today I soaked the pad in soapy water and found THREE holes. All on the front side of the pad, all in the bottom of the crevices that make up the waffle surface. Since these areas are heavily recessed they are protected from pokes. The most logical conclusion seems to be that this is some type of stress driven tears. See images below.

BA claims this is an insulted pad but I'm not seeing any R-values reported . What exactly is the insulating system and how is the temperature determined?

Asked by: Brian
Outdoor gear lab gave it a 3.0 in their 2017 sleeping pad review.

It's hard to see in the picture, is this pad waffle construction or vertical? They sell the one on Amazon under the same name QCore SLX in the same color but it has the waffle pattern on it. Is this an older model maybe?

Asked by: JoyC
Thanks for the question! The Q Core SLX Sleeping Pads we have in stock currently are from Spring 2017 and will have vertical construction. Sorry for the confusion!

Im looking for something like this (the petite size) , but with no insulation (so no noise/crinkling).Do you make one? It is for indoor use Thank you, deb B

Asked by: debb
Hey, Debb The only thing we make here at Moosejaw are smiles and rainbows. Yes, rainbows are a direct result of our science! But, while we don't make any of the pads, we do offer quite a bit of brands that have the art of sleeping mattresses nailed. The Q Core SLX is one of the quieter ones out on the market. Have you had experience with it yourself? I had a Big Agnes Air Core and THAT made me enemy number one among any people who were sleeping within 50 feet of me. The Q Core SLX, however, didn't cause anyone to react. Ugly fact is, on all air mattresses, there will always be a noise when you shuffle or adjust around on it. Even if you have a sheet on it. Just the matter of the baffles rubbing against each other. You could always shoot for foam pads, but if you are looking for comfort, some noise will be a fact of life.

I was looking to purchase this for a BA Skeeter 20 long bag and was wondering if the 25" wide long pad would work with the sleeping bags integrated pad holder or if I should stick with the 20" long? Thanks in advance

Asked by: EPettit
Hey there, Thanks for reaching out to us! Did you know that Skeeter was the only 'Muppet Baby' that we never got to see grown-up? It still haunts me to this day. your question: So, I just pulled this from our warehouse and gave it the old ocular pat-down. So, the REM Pad Sleeve will hold the 20" pad, but that would be about it. Without any pad in there, the opening runs a length of about 21-22" trying to get a 25" pad would not work. Stick with the 20" and you'll be fine! Hope this helps you out! Hugsies.
