This is the perfect deal for us: two beds for the price of one; it can be used for us when we go camping, for a kids' sleepover, guests. They come zipped together, ready to be blown up & used as either the double high twin, two separate twins or one large mattress. The problem with using them as one large mattress is the big canyon in the middle. Maybe if you flip them over so the 'suede' side is down, that might work better for one big bed. We don't plan on using them that way, so no problem for us. Using a hand pump I had them pumped up to full firmness in less than 15 minutes going fairly hard & fast (I'm a strong enough woman). We slept on them 5 nights camping and I only had to give mine a quick pump or two on the 3rd night. Very comfy, very easy to deflate, even without using the deflate option on the pump. Just unplug and let them go while you do something else. The mattresses didn't seem to lose air until the second day, which is to be expected, but even with less air and not so firm they were comfortable for me and my husband. I have back pain if my bed is too soft or too firm and this was just right - call me Mama Bear!I would certainly recommend this set to anyone looking for a decent price for two mattresses.
Comfortable bed for guests
We purchased this bed for us to sleep in at our son's home. We slept on the floor in the bed made up with a king matress pad, king sheets, king blanket and king comforter. My husband and I are in our late 60's and we were very comfortable. After the first night we did add a little air to both sides, then it was fine. It can be filled with a vaccum hose attached to the exhaust (blow out) hole although the matress hole is a bit smaller than the vaccum hose opening.
Great mattresses, reasonably priced
I was planning to camp for the first time in years and was concerned about being able to sleep on the ground, since I am in my 60's and enjoy comfort. These mattresses gave me an excellent night's sleep every night and I couldn't be more happy with them. Quality seems good and versatile design is brilliant. My only problem was getting the pump out and the valve closed quickly enough to prevent too much air from leaking out. But I recommend this product unreservedly!
I purchased this bed for a cousin campout on Memorial weekend 2011. It was very comfy. I also used it for 5 nights in June 2011 for camping at Country USA. I had to only add air once as I did not inflate it enough the first night. I recommended it to a friend and she alsoused it for the 5 nights . We both decided we made a great purchase. Very comfortable amd easy to store. Great to have on hand for overnight guests.
durable bed, but large gap
We use the bed for camping. The quality is great. We use it as a king, which is not as great. There is a large gap between the two beds (approximately 8")- large enough to get stuck in at night. We ended up rolling up two queen size conforters to try to fill the gap, which helped. The beds would certainly make two great twin beds, either for camping or guests. Haven't tried them stacked yet...
Cfortable and practical
Very comfortable mattress for my week of camping. I just used one of the twin mattresses and slept well. It inflated with the separately purchased inflator in just a few minutes. Very easy to use. I look forward to also using this in my home with visiting guests. Love the option of having two twins, one queen or one twin "fit for a queen"! Great purchase!
We camped in a tent for 5 days in Maine. This mattress was perfect. No rolling into the center or bouncing when the other person moved. We are very close to 60 yrs. old and this saved our camping trip. The mattresses is heavier and suitable for car camping vs. backpacking.
Having company later this summer and plan to make it up for a spare bed.
Extra sleep for extra sleepers
This is a great extra bed/beds to have on hand for company. They're easy to inflate and deflate, and simple to roll up and store without taking up a lot of room. They're comfortable, and it's useful to be able to use it as a twin or a double. We just used it once so far, so I can't comment on longer term durability.
Used for a family camping trip, 4 nights in the Adirondacks. Mattress blew up in just a few minutes with a hand pump and deflated just as quickly. No air leakage, only additional air needed after 2 nights was likely due to initial under-inflation. Great mattress, worked perfectly for my wife, me and our two young sons.
This is the one to buy!
The label says that it is not leaking, but streching the first time you use it.I was leary, but I put more air in the mattress for the second night and it remained full for the next 5 nights. I could not be happier, finally a product that does what they say.
