Roughing it doesn’t mean you have to forgo sleep comfort. Renowned outdoor outfitter (and multiple award winner) Big Agnes knows a thing or two when it comes to equipment, especially their Air Core sleeping pads. Taking one of their award winning traditional pad designs and “green-ifying” it, has resulted in the Big Agnes Recycled Diversion Insulated Air Core, an easy to inflate, self-stuffing (sack included) sleeping pad made of 100% recycled rip-stop shell fabric (1.7 lbs). For extra rugged use, a repair kit is hidden in the stuff sack.

Cost: $90-$100

More details after the jump.
