Bought for guests so I haven't slept on that yet. However, I inflated it and it was a cinch. Was firm and ready in just a few minutes. Deflated easily too.

Just what we needed!
We love staying in the cabins at our favorite Texas State Park, but the twin mattresses on the bunk beds are so hard on our 50+ bodies. So this year we tried adding these air mattresses on top, and it was just what we needed. We followed the instructions to blow up the mattresses at home first. Every day for about 3 days, I added more air as the mattress stretched. Here at the cabin, they've held their air the whole time we've been here and are very comfortable. I'd highly recommend them.
I was pleasantly surprised. The bed appears to be much higher quality than I expected for the price. Was very impressed with the built-in inflator/deflator. Have tried out each of the 4 I bought to make sure there was no problem. The bed was much more comfortable than most regular mattress' that I have slept on. I normally sleep on a tempur pedic and this was almost as good. Can not yet speak to the durability.

This bed is so comfortable, we may have to use it instead of our regular mattress! My husband's legs and hips tend to hurt him after a few hours in bed, but this bed has completely relieved his pain. Love it!!
My 15 month old did not like the Pack N Play so we purchased this to keep at Nana's house. He slept SO soundly, even with a cold! My mom said it was easy to blow up before we got there and store after we left.

"BOAT BED" for toddlers!
We bought this for our 3 year old granddaughter who spent the holidays with us. She absolutely LOVED her 'boat bed'. I have already lent it out to friend. I highly suggest using an electric pump otherwise, I think we would still be pumping. GREAT item to have if you need a bed for a toddler.
I have owned 2 of these beds for over two years and have camped with them in temperatures below freezing and above 100 and they have worked really well. I am very comfortable sleeping on it, and it has been very durable. We also pull them out for the occasional sleep over and they are good for that too. The longest we've used them at any one time was 5 nights, and they worked fine. They inflate fast, can be adjusted to be firmer or softer and have stood up to the abuse of my 8-year-old son
... read more jumping on them. We are about to buy another one to replace a different brand of air mattress that has not worked so well and that cost a lot more money. I love that they roll up into the carrying case it makes them easy to store and carry. We store these in our shed when we aren't using them and it isn't heated or air conditioned, but it doesn't seem to have caused them any harm. I highly recommend them for short car camping trips.

Had it loved it
I am a large woman and I had this air mattress for about 5 years and abused it in every way possible. It did leak some air during the night, but I toss and turn and due to my weight I am sure. Had no problem just refilled the air
This has lasted so much longer than all the other brands we've used. My wife and I combine for just over 300 lbs, and still no problems with this mattress so far. We like it so much that we bought a 2nd one as a backup (so accustomed to the other brands developing slow leaks)...and still no need for it to date.

Durable Airbed and handy attached storage wrap
I have used this bed several times and it has outlasted two other brands bought at the same time. the attached storage wrap make things nice and has a carry handle on it. good bed at a great price. I'm planning on getting another one because I need two for my tent.
I spent only three nights on it before I bought a thicker Therm-a-Rest. Granted it was twice as expensive but I actually get some sleep. I used it on the ground - may be comfortable on a cot. Upside of the low cost Venture model: Low cost and high quality. Downsides: Too thin. Too narrow. One small air hole (long inflate and deflate time). No built-in pillow. No built in air pump. Doesn't fold-up any smaller than the thicker mattress.

Great air mattress
I bought this mattress for boy scout campouts with my son. The two inch height allows for sleeping on my side. Also the weight is on 1.5 # and one liter in size makes this a great back pack companion for us over 40 dads
