Scouted relentlessly tries new products and scours the internet to recommend the best things for upgrading your life – so you don’t have to. Whatever you’re looking for, we’ve got you covered.
The technology behind air mattresses has evolved rapidly. Once avoided during sleep overs, I now prefer my air mattress over most couches and even some regular mattresses. They’re great in case of an emergency, and can convert any room into a make-shift bedroom for guests with the push of a button. Since they’re easily storable, you won’t even notice you own one. Until you use it that is. To help you sort through the sleiu of air mattresses, we’ve rounded up the best air mattresses for any way you might be using one.
SoundAsleep Dream Series Air Mattress
With a 4.5 star-rating on Amazon and over 20,000 reviews, the SoundAsleep Dream Series Air Mattress might just be the best air mattress to have around for any situation. It’s waterproof so it’ll work for camping, but it’s really comfortable, so it works great for having guests over, too.
FOR HAVING GUESTS OVER
King Koil Air Mattress
The King Koil is great for having guests over. Built for maximum comfort, it contains a built-in pillow, and the quilt top provides extra spinal support. One Amazon reviewer says “guests prefer to sleep on our King Koil, instead of the other mattress we have.”
Intex Comfort Plush Elevated Dura-Beam Airbed
This is the air mattress I have so it’s not just for kids, I promise, but since most of my friends act like children (boom, roasted) we got this one for when they spend the night. It’s extra-durable and puncture resistant thanks to the Dura-Beam technology and velvety sides. It also packs down really small into a great, included carry-bag.
EnerPlex Never-Leak Camping Series Airbed
With a 60-second inflation, this airbed was designed for portability and quick set-up. But that doesn’t mean it sacrifices comfort for portability. It still has the coil beams that other air mattresses have, and you can easily adjust the inflation levels, depending on how firm or squishy you like your mattress to be.
