When you want to feel at home while camping outdoors, (at least when it’s bedtime) the closest thing you can get is a good quality air bed mattress. The best thing about these mattresses is that you can easily carry them in your backpack and they can be inflated in minutes.
With so many options available in the market, choosing one can be tough. Today, we will review the Lightspeed Outdoors PVC-Free Air Bed Mattress, one of the premium products that has been ranking high in competition for a long time. Let’s take a closer look at the build, design, and features.
When we looked at the air bed mattress, we found it to be a refreshing blend of an air mattress and a sleeping pad. It is big enough for two people to sleep comfortably. The ‘TPU’ is a great addition that is sure to catch the attention of outdoor enthusiasts.
This bed comes with a patented stabilizing system. It uses independent connectors located between the top and bottom layers to form a reliable structure.
The air bed is lightweight, battery-operated and extremely lightweight. The stabilizers are useful in evenly distributing the weight of the sleeper so that you don’t feel that ‘bouncy’ movement, a common complaint from air mattress users.
The top layer of the bed is five inches above the ground. Several tests have shown that the bed does not deflate even after an entire night. So, you won’t wake up hitting the ground with this one!
As mentioned above, the external structure of the bed is made from TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane), which is a highly durable material. It is also resistant to puncture and abrasion, so you don’t have to worry about leaks and doing patch-up work.
This bed is also PVC free which means that it does not have the ballooning and stretching feel of a typical air mattress. There’s less force exerted on the seams, so there’s less likely for the bed to develop seam leaks.
The product comes with Boston double-valve which helps in inflating the air bed quickly and with ease. It just takes about 3 minutes to get the desired firmness for a comfortable night’s sleep.
There are two caps in the valve and one of them used for inflation as well as deflation. The other one only allows the air to enter but restricts it from escaping.
After you have inflated the mattress, make sure you close the valve firmly to avoid any unwanted leakages. Another common complaint of double size air bed users is that they to roll towards the middle and find it difficult to stay on the sides.
However, this revolutionary bed which is built in the style of a real mattress solves this problem to a great extent and allows two people to share the bed comfortably. The Tuft Tech technology prevents slipping and provides better support and comfort.
The product comes with a nice oversized bag for you to store the air bed when not in use. When completed deflated, it can be folded with ease and carried within the bag wherever you want.
