The queen size Insta-Bed Raised Air Mattress is the best queen air mattress that we’ve ever bought, and that means something because we’ve tried aplenty. If you are looking for a sturdy and firm air bed that is high or raised from the floor or to alleviate back pain, the Insta-Bed is your best bet. This queen air bed is the most sturdy air bed that we’ve ever slept on.
Why It is So Sturdy and Firm
Basically, there are two pumps in this air mattress. The first one does all the job of inflating or deflating the air bed as and when needed, and it is switched on and off automatically. I loved this feature because keeping track of the air getting into the air mattress prevented me from doing anything else in that period.
The second or “NeverFlat” pump ensures that the air bed remains firm. If that is what the pump is doing then it is doing a good job of maintaining the air pressure in the air mattress. The problem with airbeds is that they lose their firmness after sometime, but Insta-Bed may prove to be an exception thanks to this technology.
The size that I bought is the queen size Insta-Bed. The dimensions of this bed are perfect and the bed sheets fitted nicely over the air bed. This bed has a height of 18″, which is tall enough for getting in and out of the bed easily. If it were a couple inches higher it would be better still, but I suppose this height makes it sturdier than if it were higher.
Air Coils Make It Feels Like A Real Bed
The manufacturer’s description suggests that there are 35 coils inside the Insta-Bed air mattress. I have no intention to verify that and lose this air mattress for good, but let me assure you that the air bed does not feel as if it is air bed. The air coils do help make the air bed feel like a traditional bed with coils.
This air bed folds and fits into a small bag, although if you are going to use this as an everyday bed, you’ll probably keep the air bed inflated at all times.
Conveniently Maintains Firmness
I really like how the NeverFlat pump automatically adds some air into the air bed when the pressure has gone down. The air mattress does not leak air, you understand, but as all air mattresses go, they will lose a small amount of air slowly and over a few days the air bed will become less firm compared to the time when you’ve just pumped it up.
The convenience of having the automatic pump with sensor means I don’t have to check the firmness of my Insta-Bed before going to sleep, and I don’t even have to manually add air into it if it’s not firm enough. The NeverFlat pump does it for me!
The verdict? This is the best air bed to buy if you want a queen size air mattress for everyday use. You can get it here.
