If the warmth claim pans out, I just might have to get one of these. I tried the BA uninsulated and my metal parts got cold on a 75F night.

It does look Comfortable. Has anyone tried an insulated Big Agnes or Exped downMat / SynMat... http://www.campmor.com/outdoor/gear/Category___73080__244

I use the BA Insulated Air Core and love it. I've never had any problem with it. A few years ago BA had a bad run of these mats and several of those deflated on a lot of people giving BA a bad name. BA stands behind its products and will replace them without question if a seam fails.

The BA is what I'm really interested in... did u have to put something under it. I thought about useing a cheap light wt closed cell foam pad to protect it. Also, what was the coldest temp u used it and was still comfortable.

I'm an extemely cold sleeper and have been comfortable down to 24 degrees on the BA insulated Air Core alone. I don't use any other mat with it.
