While you likely will miss your own bed and familiar mattress while traveling, a quality portable mattress can still provide you with a comfortable night’s rest so that you’ll wake up feeling refreshed. They’re also handy to have around when you have house guests and not enough beds to go around. Our list provides a range of both inflatable selections and foam ones, to suit just about every taste and budget.
The SoundAsleep Dream Series comes on board in this update. Unlike many others that need complete refills or topping off, this model holds its air well after many uses. It provides comfortable back support, and you can control the level of inflation to your liking. It’s easy to inflate and deflate via a dial on its side, and it can be set up (or taken down) in just a few minutes. It’s large enough to sleep two people comfortably.
Another strong choice is the Coleman Airbed, which can support up an impressive 600 pounds. It consists of an inflatable mattress that sits atop a steel folding cot. It’ll give you a reliable and comfortable sleeping surface that’s elevated from the ground. It comes in handy on lengthy camping trips where sleeping on the ground for several consecutive nights can lead to soreness and exhaustion.
Leaving the list today is the Shrunks Youth Travel Bed, due to issues with availability.
