Coleman Self-Inflating Camping Pad with Pillow

This is a Coleman Self-Inflating Camping Pad with Pillow that will be perfect for you when going on your next camping trip. It’s not as small and tight as backpacking SIMs so it can provide more comfort while sleeping, making this the ideal choice if you’re looking to lounge around in nature.

Some people just don’t get a good night’s sleep on the road. You can have all sorts of things that keep you up at night when camping, like windy weather and noisy neighbors- but one thing is guaranteed to irritate most whomever: an uncomfortable bed!

Even though airbeds are classic travel accommodations, they can still be improved. SIM mats have been created to address some of these issues: they are softer and more comfortable than an inflatable mattress; you won’t bounce if your partner moves in bed; there’s no need for a pump or any other sorta awkward equipment. Our household has both types, so we’ll sleep well on our next vacation!

Camping is a popular activity for families. However, most family campers take the car to get there so they can sleep in their own bed and use some of their household furniture like chairs or tables at home. This doesn’t apply to those who backpack because it’s difficult for them not to be able to bring all the comforts from home with them on foot! If you’re looking for something that has many features but isn’t too heavy or cumbersome – look no further than Coleman Self-Inflating Camping Pad with Pillow.

When this was first unveiled at the recent trade show and I had an opportunity to see it up close myself, I could tell it would be very comfortable when used as a sleeping mat inside your tent, unlike others.

Some Important Points of Coleman Self-Inflating Camping Pad with Pillow

The Coleman camping tent is a lot bigger than the previous tents we’ve had before, but it’s not too big and can be easily packed.


Coleman has been making camping gear for decades, so it’s no surprise that they’re an authority on self-inflating mats. The first time you inflate this mat, be sure to give a few gentle breaths into the valve before sealing up your air mattress and lying down – otherwise, it’ll take much longer to fully fill with air!

It was clear that my mattress needed some help, so I took it outside to give it a good airing. Sure enough, the Coleman is very firm and recommended letting out air if you want your bed softer. They also recommend leaving inflated for an hour on first use in order to let the foam expand – which makes sense since this thing packs down small when deflated!

A sound night’s sleep

The sleeping mat was so comfortable that I didn’t feel the need to sleep at all. It doesn’t deflate either overnight, and two of us have tested it now and both agree – Coleman is better than any air bed we’ve tried before!

How to Roll Up a Coleman Self-Inflating Camping Pad with Pillow

Putting the Coleman away is easy. It has two valves so that you can get all of the air out quicker and pack it up for your next adventure!

Here’s how: Steps

Open both valves.
Start to roll up the SIM from the side that has a valve, going in reverse. This will help ensure you do not put any pressure on valves or get them caught in something else for storage purposes.
To keep your sushi roll nice and tight, push down to force the air out. If it doesn’t look as if it’s rolled tightly enough then unroll a bit before rolling again and you’ll find that this time is easier than last because of all the air being forced out!
When you get to the valves, tighten them up.
Use the velcro straps to keep your roll tidy. Slide it into its bag, making sure everything is in order before you close the zipper!
