Just because you're sleeping on an air mattress doesn't mean that you shouldn't be getting a luxurious night's sleep. Whether you're looking for a mattress for yourself or your guests, you know you want to get a high-quality, durable, and comfortable, air mattress.
Fortunately, we're well passed the days when air mattresses deserved their reputation for being one step up from fold-out beds and sleeping pads. Not only are air mattresses increasingly comfortable, but they're also designed to mimic the sleep quality and feeling of a traditional mattress.
We’re looking at two of the best air mattresses you can get right now. We’ll highlight their most important features. That’s not just so you can choose between these two mattresses, but also to help identify the things that make the biggest difference in your sleep experience.
Noble's Queen size air mattress is a huge upgrade from the air mattresses of the past. From a more durable and comfortable construction to a larger profile and built-in pump, this mattress is designed to perform. When you're looking for the best, this mattress should be on your list.
Height might not seem like the most important consideration in a mattress, but it can make a significant difference. Especially if you’re looking for a mattress as an option for visiting friends and family, a taller mattress is a good choice.
Why? It’s about comfort. There are two things added height gives you that shorter mattresses just can’t. For one thing, it’s easier to get in and out of a taller mattress. You won’t have to stress your knees nearly as much with this taller option.
The extra height also means you are less likely to find yourself sleeping on the floor by morning. New mattresses can stretch and lose air pressure overnight, and many lose a small amount of air pressure from normal use. Double high designs keep you further away from the ground.
And, because they have more air in the first place, they’re less likely to lose a noticeable amount of air pressure.
This topper is an important addition, even if it isn’t the last layer between you and the mattress itself. There are three things a good quilt top can really address in an air mattress.
For one thing, it gets rid of the scratchy slick sound and feeling of sheets on rubber. Your sheets will stay in place more like a traditional mattress and will give a more secure feeling.
It also adds durability to the mattress. Since this quilt top is waterproof, it's also a good option for younger guests. If you have kids, whether they can make it through the night or not, this topper will keep your mattress cleaner and stain-free, no matter what they get up to.
Lastly, the quilt top helps fix on the main weaknesses of air mattresses, heat transfer. While you may still want a couple of layers between you and the mattress, the quilt topper keeps you warmer, and the cold of the air inside your mattress further away.
Built-in pumps might be a standard feature for most nicer air mattresses, but this one stands out from the crowd. Capable of moving a lot of air especially quickly, this pump can inflate your air mattress in only 3 minutes.
EZ Inflate has put a priority on creating a quality mattress without the high price tag that can make getting a good night's sleep difficult. They believe that quality sleep should be accessible for just about everyone, and this mattress shows it.
One thing that really stands out about this mattress is its measurements. Instead of measuring everything and using that for the mattress dimensions, including the curved edges that aren’t comfortable to sleep on, they only measure the flat flocked top.
So, the size measurements only account for the actual sleeping space. That means more space for you and your guests sleeping on this bed.
The rounded, taller, edges built into this mattress design help keep you comfortable and in the middle of the bed.
While these rounded edges aren’t a great place to sleep, they are a good innovation for active sleepers. If you’re someone to tends to roll around, those rounded edges will keep you far enough from the edge to keep you from falling out of your bed.
You also get a lot of security with this mattress. If you don't like it for any reason in the first 30 days after your purchase, EZ Inflate offers a 30-day money-back guarantee. Essentially that means that you get a 30-day trial with the mattress where you can decide whether it's the right mattress for you.
The 2-year warranty is also a nice bonus. Many air mattresses come with a 1-year warranty but extending that out to 2 years is a sign that EZ Inflate trusts their products.
Like ComfortCoil, Coil Beams are an innovation designed to help air mattresses hold their shape and provide more support for your back, neck, and joints.
Basically, it means that the air mattress is segmented into different 'beams' inside, with limited transfer of the pressurized air. That's important because it allows the mattresses to be firmer, and to provide more resistance to support you while you sleep.
Even if you like your mattress especially soft, the coil beams inside the structure will keep you comfortable and will stop you from sinking too deep into the mattress.
