The Unigear Campfire P3 air sleeping pad is a budget-friendly inflatable camping pad that is water repellent tear-resistant, quiet, and lightweight.
The camp pad can be inflated using your mouth on the valve that’s self-sealing, or the inflatable bag that simply presses against the valve.
It’s made from 40d310t nylon and uses a 150d Oxford strap. The packed down size when rolled up and stored in the stuff sack is 15 in by 4.8 in by 4.8 in or 38 centimeters by 12 CM by 12 CM. It weighs about 2 lb and inflates to a size of 73.2 in by 25.2 in by 3 in thick or 186 cm by 64 cm by 7.5 cm thick. The r-value or insulated value of the pad is two.
The TPU edges are pressed and sealed to prevent any air leakage. Todd uses a one-way airflow valve that inflates without leaking and deflates quickly.
The 3 in of padding especially when using the pump sack can get extremely firm. It’s nice to use slightly less air for a more comfortable sleep, rather than pumping up the PAD as hard as you can. The design takes into account back waist leg and ankle curvatures to help disperse the body pressure evenly. It’s great for the backside and some stomach sleepers.
Inside of the pack comes the
- sleeping pad
- pump sack
- two circular elastic straps
- one repair kit with two patches
Unigear year has an unconditional return and replacement warranty within 30 days. That gives you the option to take it on a few trips try it out see if it works for you and returns it if you decide you don’t like it. For a budget pad, this is a great option with zero risks.
After pumping up the pad and sleeping on it for a night there was minimal to no air loss. However, after a few days, you’ll notice the pad has lost some air but can quickly be inflated with a few pumps from the bag. It takes about 15 human breaths or about 15 bags pumped into the air pad to fully inflate it. We will continue to use the campfire P3 air sleeping pad to see how long it lasts before it starts losing air or punctures, however, after a couple of uses it seems like a great budget-friendly option for beginner backpackers and campers
