The Coleman Air Mattress Collection
To help take some of the confusion out of buying a new mattress, Cheap Mattress Reviews was founded to provide you with consumer reviews of all the leading mattresses available today.
If you’ve ever had to consider getting temporary bedding for your home you are probably no stranger to the air mattress concept, whereby an inflatable bed can be deflated and packed away in a closet when not being used, to save floor-space. Here we take a look at one of the leading manufacturers of these items, by casting an eye over the Coleman air mattress collection.
The first mattress to look at is the Double High Pillow Top Air Mattress. This is a queen size bed (78″ long by 60″ wide when inflated) that is as thick as a standard mattress and is topped off with a fiber-filled, quilted, pillow-top pad, just like a standard mattress. Of course there are no springs or foam though – just air inside. The pad zips off and can be machine washed for easy maintenance. The bed is designed for permanent or frequent use (as opposed to some air mattresses which are not as robust and are designed for temporary or occasional use.) It has a built-in electric pump that inflates and deflates the bed in seconds and the Coleman Airtight System guarantees a leak-free mattress. Usually it comes with a convenient carry bag that makes it nice and portable.
Another of the more popular air beds from Coleman is the Queen Double-High Airbed with 120 Volt Pump. This mattress measures 78″ long x 60″ wide x 17″ thick when inflated, so is again the same size as a standard queen mattress set that raises the sleeper well off the floor. It has a soft suede finish to it that provides a smooth and soft sleeping surface. Obviously firmness can be controlled by deflating or inflating the mattress and it comes with an electric pump that inflates the bed in about 3 minutes. It uses the Coleman Advanced Double Lock Valve, which locks in the air, working in combination with the Coleman Airtight System. It is easy to store as it can be rolled up, so it makes an ideal bed to keep for visitors who need a place to rest their head for the night. You should find that this mattress wears well as it is made from resilient PVC that doesn’t puncture easily but, like with all air mattresses, it’s best to keep the cats away from it!
The above mattress also comes in Twin size, measuring 78″ long x 39″ wide x 17″ thick when fully inflated. There are several other variations on this theme in the Coleman Collection that are featured on their web site and available on Amazon for around $60-80. Coleman also makes a combination air mattress and cot, designed for guests or camping quarters. It has a lightweight aluminum folding frame and nylon cover and the frame carries a three-year warranty.
