A great guest bed or deluxe camping mattress. Nearly as comfy as a real bed!
Easy and fast to inflate/deflate, doesn't leak, comfortable, spacious, rolls up
A bit heavy at almost 10 pounds (plus batteries)
The Bottom Line:
My Coleman Double Size Comfortsmart Quickbed with Quickpump is as comfy as a bed. Fast and easy inflation. Rolls up easily. Love it!
My husband and sons go camping several times a year but they tend to rough it with no cots or air mattresses. That's fine for them but when we all decided to go camping last year, I was not budging without something softer than the tent floor to sleep on. We bought a Coleman Double Size Comfortsmart Quickbed with Quickpump because it was priced right and had all we needed to inflate it. I love it. It doesn't lose air and it's super comfortable.
About the Product
The Coleman Full-Sized Quickbed With 4D Pump is a great choice for camping, overnight guests, or anywhere you need an extra bed. Measuring 74" long by 54" wide when inflated (fitting standard double sheets), the Quickbed is made of heavy-duty, puncture-resistant PVC, with 40 coils inside and a soft suede top for extra comfort. The Quickbed is easy to inflate and deflate, thanks to the included 4D pump (requires four D batteries, not included). Like all Coleman inflatable products, this Quickbed features Coleman's Airtight System, guaranteed not to leak. And the built-in Wrap 'N' Roll storage system makes packing and storing quick and easy.
This double sized air mattress is 74" by 54" as stated in the info above. It takes double sized sheets which were pretty difficult for me to find in stores. I probably should have settled for the twin sized Quickbed but I knew eventually one of the boys would end up using it and they are not small creatures.
The unit comes rolled tightly in a mesh bag and it's hard to imagine that it could inflate to a bed-like mattress but it does and does quickly. The packaging includes a small pump that takes four D sized batteries. The pump not only inflates the bed, it also quickly deflates it as well. The batteries don't last a long time, I have found, so we remove them between uses and that works better than leaving the batteries in the pump.
The mattress is made of PVC and has a very comfortable sueded top. It has lots of little indentations (quilting) so it's almost like a real mattress in the way it feels beneath me. It has 40 coils for support and a double lock valve. It's really important to be sure the mattress is doubly locked or else it will leak. Coleman guarantees that the unit won't leak if locked properly. I only had one incident of the unit losing air and that's because I didn't lock it properly. Otherwise, once this bed is inflated, it stays that way with no softening or flattening.
I have used the Coleman Double Size Comfortsmart Quickbed with Quickpump several times and my younger son has used it at least three times. He brought it with us when we stayed in a cabin because he wanted to sleep on it rather than the very narrow bunk beds in the rustic Adirondack cabin we rented. He's 6'3" and 215 pounds. He had no issues at all with the mattress. It held his body weight fine and he was much more comfortable than if he was stuck in a little twin bunk bed. I told you I knew the kids would use this!
As for me, as soon as we arrived at the campgrounds the first time, I pulled out the Quickbed. Once the tent was up, I unrolled the bed and read the instructions, which were very simple to follow. It's just a matter of attaching the pump to the air valve and turning the pump on!
The mattress inflated within about two to three minutes. I like mattresses firm so I allowed the pump to really inflate the mattress to almost hardness. Removing the pump is easy and the mattress doesn't start to deflate immediately like some inflatable things do when you remove the pump from the locking mechanism. Once the lock is buckled down, the Quickbed is ready to be used.
I slept on the Coleman Double Size Comfortsmart Quickbed with Quickpump with just my sleeping bag that first weekend. I was as comfortable as I would have been on a real bed or very close to it. It never deflated or softened at all. I also didn't slip and slide on the mattress because of the sueded top. My slippery sleeping bag stayed in one place all night.
When the time came to deflate the mattress, it took a little longer than to inflate it but not much. It was fast and easy. I did have to press a bit to get the last bits of air out but, again, that was simple.
The mattress rolls up and is supposed to be carried in the bag it came with. I had trouble rolling it tightly enough to fit well into the bag. I could eventually get the rolled up mattress into the bag but I have since bought a slightly bigger bag to store the Coleman Double Size Comfortsmart Quickbed with Quickpump for ease.
I used the mattress several more times for different reasons and my son also did, as I mentioned. We both found it to be very comfortable and very easy to use. It doesn't leak or deflate even a little bit and, with a sheet, pillow, and other bedding, it makes a great guest bed especially for kids or younger people.
The size of this double bed is perfect for one person and even can accommodate two. It's spacious for one and cozy for two.
One thing I should mention is that the Coleman Double Size Comfortsmart Quickbed with Quickpump is somewhat heavy at about 9.5 pounds deflated. It probably wouldn't be a great choice to haul around when hiking long distances to a campsite but I haven't used it in that way. It's not a typical air mattress, it's almost a bed!
I have not had my mattress set up on a long term basis but I would imagine that one would have to add a bit of air now and then if it was set up permanently because that is the nature of any air filled item. This mattress CAN be used as a bed or as a permanent set up and I wouldn't be surprised if it it is as comfortable or nearly as comfortable as real bed over the long haul.
For me, the Coleman Double Size Comfortsmart Quickbed with Quickpump is perfect for camping, staying in cabins when extra bedding is needed, using at home when my younger son has a friend over, and whenever anyone in my family needs an extra "bed". I have loaned this mattress out several times already to family members for various reasons and they all loved it. It's inexpensive enough that they could and should buy their own, though. Ha!
The Coleman Double Size Comfortsmart Quickbed with Quickpump is available wherever sporting goods and Coleman products are sold. I have seen it on the net at Amazon and several other outlets and I have seen it at brick and mortar sporting goods stores. The cost for the double size is around $45.00 to $50.00 which I feel is a great value. Coleman also makes twin and queen sized Quickbeds. They may also sell a full and king version but I believe those sizes come in a somewhat different version than the Comfortsmart.
I am very happy with my Coleman Double Size Comfortsmart Quickbed with Quickpump and use it more than I expected to. I always think of blow up mattresses as those $2.00 ones that you float on in the water that buckle and double over. This mattress is nothing AT ALL like that. It is as "bed-like" as can be and stays firm and holds its shape. It's super versatile and the size is good for one or two people. It's rugged enough for camping yet nice looking enough for guests to use in your home. I have had no issues with my Coleman Double Size Comfortsmart Quickbed with Quickpump so far.
I may buy my son his own since we find ourselves fighting over the one I have. I have to go with 5 stars. I have nothing to complain about. I wouldn't recommend the mattress to campers/hikers who are hauling things long distances because of the weight but, if an extra 10 pounds doesn't break your back, you'll sleep like a baby when you get where you're going!
