The Lightspeed Outdoors mattress does exactly what its name implies – give you a fast, no-nonsense portable sleeping solution. But it does so while also incorporating a patented pressure management mechanism as well as a stabilizer system to give you total control of its comfort level. With its 192 separate connectors hooked to the pressure management system, it allows you to set it up exactly as needed. Even better is the fact that it has just one seam running through it which minimizes the risk of leaks. The air bed is also an eco-friendly option since it is made from TPU, and inflates easily with its own DC electric pump. When not in use, it rolls up into a compact shape that can easily be stored / transported. All in all, this is an excellent air mattress choice for campers whose primary focus is travelling / hiking / outdoor activities instead of sleeping.
Want the very best mattress for car camping that money can buy, but don't want to separate at night from your honey (aka your cold weather bed heater)? Luckily for you, Exped makes their Editors' Choice Award- winning Megamat in Duo size, the Exped SIM Mega Mat Duo. This mattress is comprised of the same excellent features and construction of our favorite mat, the , but is a full 52 inches wide rather than the standard 30 inches of most single person XL sized mattresses we tested. This queen size mattress uncannily fits in the back of pickup truck or minivan, making it the unparalleled choice for your road-tripping rig. Move over cheap memory foam, there is a much better option for live-in-a-vehicle comfort.
"This pad is more comfortable than my bed!" That was most common comment from our testing team about the Exped Megamat 10. Yes, it's that good. It's expensive and a pain to inflate and deflate, but the supreme comfort is worth it. It's more compact, durable and comfortable than an AeroBed: it's a great mattress for friends to crash on your living room floor. While other mattresses are too soft, don't provide enough internal cushioning, allow pressure points, or are not insulated enough, the Megamat 10's high-quality construction and exemplary design alleviate all concerns. Simply put, if you want the best mattress for car camping available today, then look no further.
Want a mattress that is quick and easy to use and packs down smaller than the others, all while barely compromising on comfort? Check out the Therm-a-rest NeoAir Dream, the most convenient mattress for car camping that you can buy. While there is one other mattress that we rated higher (see our Editors' Choice Award winner above), there is no doubt that it is very large, heavy, and feels like wrestling a bear to get deflated. In comparison, this mattress works like a Dream. Its zip open construction reveals that it is made of a combination of an inflatable Therm-a-rest pad with soft foam on top, all covered by a plush velvety top. The versatility of this mattress is a strength, as its small size makes it easy to pack around, and it easily joins with others of its kind to create a double wide. For the most convenient choice among these contenders, we recommend the NeoAir Dream.
