An air mattress is something that can benefit a large number of people in a large number of situations. When inflated, an air mattress can rival the comfort of a real bed or futon and provide great support as well as a springy softness that many people appreciate. When deflated though, the air bed can simply be folded away to store in a cupboard or even to be thrown in a backpack.
This makes an air mattress ideal for anyone who wants to be able to host their guests or to host parties but who doesn’t have the money or the space for a spare room, or for a futon.
In this review, I’ll be looking at the Coleman 4-in1 EasyStay Airbed. This is an airbed that ticks all those boxes and then some thanks to its smart design that gives it even more versatility than the average air bed. Read on to discover why this air bed is one of the most adaptable on the market today!
The first thing you’ll notice about the Coleman 4-in-1, is that it is actually two twin beds that have simply been attached at the middle. This attachment can be removed, while it is also loose enough to allow the beds to be easily stacked on top of each other.
This then gives you three different uses immediately: you can lay the whole mechanism out flat in order to create a large twin bed for a couple, you can stack the two beds on top of one another in order to provide a much taller and much more comfortable sleeping experience, or you can completely detach them and have two separate twin beds to offer two different people a good night’s sleep who perhaps don’t know one another.
This smart design means that the EasyStay can cope with a wide range of situation. Hosting a house party with lots of friends and need something for a few different people to sleep on? Then disconnect the bed and you have two or even four guests catered to!
Have your gran coming around to stay and want to give her a slightly more comfortable experience that isn’t quite so low to the ground? Then just stack the two beds on top of one another!
Going on a trip? Then you can disconnect just one of the twin beds and throw it in your boot. It really is a highly versatile design and one of my personal top recommendations for this reason alone!
The smart design is only one feature that the EasyStay offers though. Coleman is a well-known brand in the air mattress industry (which is reason enough to buy from them) and they’re also known for adding a lot of great features to their products.
In this case, the bed features ‘ComfortStrong Coil Consutrction’, which basically means that there are small supporting columns within the bed. These will help to more evenly distribute the sleeper’s weight without getting in the way when the bed is folded up.
Speaking of folding up, the EasyStay aims to make this particularly simple with its ‘Wrap-n-Roll’ feature. This is a patented design that will allow you to easily pack the bed by rolling it into the bag that remains attached at all times. If you’ve used air beds in the past, then you’ll know that anything that can make this easier is always going to be very welcome.
Finally, the ‘AirTight System’ promise that the bed will be entirely leak free for at least the first year, which should provide you with good value for money.
Customer reviews reflect just how practical and useful a bed with this design is. The reviews tend to focus on this fact and point out that you really are getting ‘two for the price of one’ and with some added functionality thrown in too. Also popular were the suede top, which users found comfortable and the fasteners which were very useful for anchoring the bed into place.
A couple of the less positive comments focus on the bed either becoming punctured, or inflating over time. While the warranty is available, it seems that punctures are somewhat more likely with this product versus more expensive ranges – but that is to be expected at this price point.
The EasyStay air bed is currently available on Amazon for just under $50, which is good value for money considering the features and the design – you’d easily pay the same for a much more simple design. This also includes free shipping if you are buying from Amazon.
The bed comes with a one year limited warranty, which is tied to the ‘AirTight’ system. That means that if you buy the bed and it starts leaking air within the first year, you will be entitled to a free repair or replacement.
For those looking for a slightly higher-end model, there are also other options such as ‘Quickbed’ and ‘Supportrest’ from the same company at slightly higher prices.
Overall, the EasyStay offers particularly good value for money thanks to its smart construction that essentially gives you two beds in one, while also providing a number of other ways to use them. This is a great choice for someone who needs to adapt to a lot of different situations and who wants something at a relatively affordable price.
The only downside is that some reviewers find the price to be reflected in the longevity. If you’re looking for a permanent replacement for a spare bed then, you might want to consider spending a little bit more and getting something made from a more durable material.
For everyone else, this is a particularly great product.
