The Best Inflatable Bed.
This inflatable bed earned The Best title from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute because of its superior combination of comfort, ease of use, and air retention. The Best model's inflatable I-beam and oval air coils provide support, conform to the sleeper's body shape, and cushion pressure points, leading panelists to laud its "perfect firmness" and conclude it had "the best surface comfort." Other beds were described as "way too hard" or "wobbly," and some sagged in the center. Bags weighing a total of 300 lbs. were placed on the beds for two days, and The Best model retained 98.4% of its air, far superior to lesser models that were completely deflated after 24 hours. The Best model has a built-in electric pump that inflates or deflates the bed in 31/2 minutes. At 18" high, it was the easiest to get in and out of and unlike other beds that were difficult to store, The Best model folds easily and stores in an included bag. An 8 1/2" gusset ensures optimal expansion and it has a soft flocked surface.
