The Insulated AXL Air won an Editors’ Choice Award in 2018 for its combo of light weight, comfort, and three-season warmth. It packs down to the size of a large burrito yet inflates to a cushy 3.25 inches thick, with thicker baffles on the sides to help keep sleepers centered on the pad. One side-sleeper raves, “I need a pad that offers a lot of support, which normally means carting around a mattress that’s at least a pound. This is the first one I’ve used that feels ultralight and ultraluxe.” With PrimaLoft Silver Insulation, you can take this pad down to freezing with the correct bag on top.
