Advantages: Easy to use, very comfortable.
Disadvantages: Would be good if it came with a pump!
As I am a student and live in a small studio flat, I wanted to get a comfortable air bed that would fit in my front room and allow my guests, be they friends or family, to sleep comfortably in their surroundings and enjoy staying around my place over night.
I have encountered many different types of air beds from different manufacturers whilst staying at friends houses but I always seem to wake up with the air bed having partially deflated underneath me or with a back and neck ache. I have only ever found a couple of air beds that I have been able to sleep on without any complaints. That is until I stumbled across the 'Campingaz Double Airbed.'
When I first purchased this air bed it was boxed and weighed about 2 kilograms. Inside was the actual air bed and a repair kit although I have fortunately still to use the repair kit. I was quite surprised at the light weight of this product as it is obviously designed for two people and many air beds that I have experienced have been notably heavy. Another reason for the light weight is because this product does not come with a pump. This is quite annoying for those that do not already have either a foot or electric pump with different adaptor fittings. Therefore once you have bought a pump along with the air bed it can become quite expensive.
To set up the air bed one must unfold it and ensure that it is facing the correct way. It is definitely more practical to blow up the air bed in the location that you intend for it to be slept on. I made this mistake due to the small size of my flat and found it very hard to manoeuvre it around the furniture. Although it is light, when fully blown up it is heavier and requires two people to move it around.
With a decent quality electric pump this air bed only takes a few minutes to fully pump up. I would not recommend doing this via foot pump as it would obviously take far longer than this.
Material and Design
The design of this air bed is definitely one of its strongest points. The air tight locking system allows the air bed to be pumped up and left for a few days before it needs topping up with air. This is very handy as it allows me to prop the air bed up against the wall for the day and then put it down on the floor at night so that I do not need to keep letting the air out and then inflating it again.
The Campingaz air bed is made of a blue durable PVC which is very sturdy yet seems to fit around the body when one is laying on it. The air bed is also of a good size and two average sized people should easily be able to sleep on it without problem.
As previously mentioned the durable PVC that this air bed is made of allows one to sleep easily whilst feeling comfortable in their surroundings. It is clear when one lays down on this air bed that it has been made with a lot of precision and quality and will not leak air or rip. Although it is not as comfortable as a mattress it is great for a few nights sleep. I have had many comments from those that have stayed over and had to sleep on it saying how comfortable it is.
I purchased this air bed in June and although it has not had too much use as of yet it is still in great condition. I will be heavily relying on this for all of my future guests and am very glad that I have bought it.
I would highly recommend this to those that often have family or friends stay over at night and also those that camp regularly!
