Air Beds & Inflatable Mattresses
No more uncomfortable nights! An inflatable mattress or larger air bed brings the comfort of home with you wherever you go. More comfortable and supportive than a standard foam mat, an air mattress is the ideal space-saving solution for festivals, camping trips or hosting out of town guests – just unpack and inflate.
Air beds come in all standard sizes from single and twin beds up to king size, so you'll have no problem using your regular sheets. Made from strong PVC and other durable materials with a velvet-feel flocked top, you might not be able to tell the difference from an ordinary mattress when it's fully inflated. For the ultimate in comfort, look for luxury mattresses with textured pillows and headboards included.
As well as being convenient, an inflatable mattress can also be more comfortable than a foam camping mattress or folding beds if you suffer from back pains, as you'll have total control over the level of firmness every night. Air mattresses can also help bedridden people to avoid pressure sores and prevent dangerous ulcers. Some can even be used as pet beds.
Every inflatable mattress needs an air pump, which can be bought separately or may be included with the bed. Some mattresses come with a built-in manual foot pump, while self-inflating air beds use an electric pump to inflate to their full size in just two to three minutes. If you'll be taking your air mattress camping, look for products that come with a handy carry bag.
