[Amazon.ca] Inflatable Sleeping Pad for Camping - 28$

With summer right around the corner I've been looking for camping gear.

Ended up finding this pad, there's a code on the page that gives 50% off the orange one. I'll try it out when it comes, there's no blowing it up required which seems pretty interesting.

The code is: V9QLP9SA

You do have to blow it up, but it looks like it's via a built-in hand pump. I dunno -- I'm leery of these no-names as it is, but now they're introducing another part to break.

Interesting design. Not sure about reliability.

Obviously how? Because you say so? They are verified purchases and include pictures. People here are so bloody paranoid.

That is typical with name brand pads too - Therm-a-rest is probably the best known brand. Just open the valve and they mostly inflate, then add a couple puffs of air to get it to your desired firmness.

Note that you can get brand name pads at sportchek for not that much more (especially if you buy gcs for 15 or 20% off) and Costco sells an offbrand for around $30 if i remember correctly.

"#1 Best Seller in Self-Inflating Camping Pads"

And it isn't self-inflating. Love the photoshopped lifestyle images.

All 11 reviews have been posted within the last 2 weeks. CCC shows as it only being listed for ~2 weeks. So even if these people ordered it on the day it debuted (when the Klymit Static V was on sale for the same price), they reviewed it the next day? With photos? All 5 stars? No "haven't used it, showed up quick tho" type comments yet? Not a single review saying "the valve is ****, can't figure it out"? I'll agree these reviews look paid for.

Doubtful that even if these are real reviews, anyone could comment on the build quality or durability as camping season has barely started.

Yup 100%.
Now that you said so, sellers will change their marketing campaign tactics. I saw other sellers who posted a review on a daily basis for 2 weeks. Months later negative reviews showed up from real buyers (incl me). Shortly later the product is no longer fulfilled by amazon ( since they allow returns). Then seller posts the product as a new product slightly different name with a new campaign of 5 star reviews. Some reviews share the same words,grammar mistakes, awkward expressions due to poor google translation. And so on.
