Big Agnes Sleeping Giant

Sleeping under the stars is magical except for one thing: the ground. It’s called terra “firma” because it’s hard, and you don’t have to be a princess for a pea/pinecone to give you fits all night.

Sleeping under the stars is magical except for one thing: the ground. It’s called terra “firma” because it’s hard, and you don’t have to be a princess for a pea/pinecone to give you fits all night. Enter the Sleeping Giant. This pad cover slips over any size or type of camping pad, upgrading it to luxury. The Sleeping Giant’s secret sauce is a layer of “memory foam,” the dense space-age stuff developed by NASA to make air travel more comfortable. The first night I slept on the Sleeping Giant was the last time I’ll go without it: I zonked right out and didn’t stir until dawn.
