I picked this pad up just a month or so ago on a closeout deal. Dimensions for the pad are 78"x20"x2.5". Big Agnes lists the weight as 25oz. My pad weighed 22oz in the stuff sack. The pad comes with the stuff sack mentioned as well as a repair kit. Tucked in it's stuff sack it is roughly 10.5"x4.5" which is the same size as my Exped pad. I have not had a chance to use this pad in the field but I have no doubts that it will be any less comfortable that my other 2 infaltable pads. This pad is the lightest of the 3 pads I have and just might take my Exped Synmat Basic 7.5s place as my go to pad since it is slightly lighter and 6 inches longer. The mummy shape definitely helps cut down the weight of the pad. Inflation took me 15 breaths which is one more that the Exped took me and 11 less than the other larger Big Agnes pad I have. The insulation used in this pad is Primaloft insulation and by what I can feel, it is attached to the inside of the top of the pad. My other Big Agnes pad uses the same insulation and in the same configuration. My Exped on the other hand has insulation on both the inside/top and inside/bottom. Big Agnes lists this pad as having a comfort rating of 15 degrees. Looking forward to trying this pad out in the near future. Here are some pics.
