I'm looking for feedback regarding a Big Agnes (or similar) pad that will be comfortable in a tent for a 5'9", 230 lb side-sleeper during nights that are above 30??. None of my camping is done on rocky/rough terrain.
Based on the charts, it looks like the Big Agnes candidates might be the:
- Dual Core
- Insulated Air Core
- Memory Foam
With most pads, I awake with sore hips and shoulders (the widest parts of my body!). Forty-five years/pounds ago, all I needed was a fairly thin Thermarest pad when backpacking. Well, that was then and this is now.
I've tried several cots which do offer relief, but I don't want to cart, setup, and provide the protective floor accommodations needed for a cot.
Anyone of a similar weight/side-sleeping position have a good recommendation for a big rider?
