I recently purchased this inflatable bed for a camping trip. I needed an inflatable mattress that was high enough for my significant other's bad back, and this bed did the trick. At 18 inches high, it gives you lots of ground clearance, and is still safe to use camping, as it's rated for outdoor use. The bed was packed very nicely, but, was absolutely impossible to put away in the same manner, so I was pleasantly suprised when I saw they included a carrying bag for the bed. I was very pleased with how easily it filled up! Since it's so high, I was afraid my pump wouldn't be able to fill it up all the way, but that wasn't a problem. I did however, have to refill it twice (the directions say this will happen) due to the plastic expanding. I don' think I would buy this unless it was needed, which in my case, it is.
