Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, but is a double size, not a queen This air mattress is probably the best I have ever owned. It is comfortable, quiet, holds air a long time, pumps up and deflates fast (you must have some strength to use the manual air pump), and is a good price. Beware, though, that it is not a queen-sized mattress. I was wondering why my sheets were too big for it, and when I compared its measurements to the standard measurements of U.S. sheet sizes, it is two inches longer than a "double" (also known as a "full"). Queen sized sheets are 4 to 6 inches longer on each dimension. Double sized sheets will work fine, especially if you have those that fit deep mattresses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great air mattress I've only used this air mattress on one camping trip so far. It stayed completely inflated for two nights. It is incredibly easy in inflate and deflate completely. The pump is good; by itself I would give the pump 3.5 stars because it is loud and bulky, but it gets the job done. The mattress gets very firm, which I loved; no sagging mattress and soreness the next morning. At first I thought the price was pretty high, but I'm fairly certain the mattress will last me long time, so it's worth it. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. I will update this review if anything changes after a few more camping trips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No leaks, fit great in 4P tent My boyfriend and I slept on this mattress for two nights in our 4P tent, and it was great. It didn't leak at all! We actually had to let some air out the second night because I had over-inflated it expecting it to deflate a bit overnight, but it didn't at all. Fully-inflated it was too hard on our backs, but letting some air out made it much more comfortable. There was plenty of room for the two of us and our two dogs to sleep on it, and room in the tent for all our stuff. I wouldn't recommend the queen size if you are trying to sleep more than 2 people in a tent, however, since it takes up most of the floor space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best air mattress I've ever used I bought this air mattress for a week long camping trip and am getting too old to sleep on a mat and am sick of air mattresses that I have to re-inflate nightly. For a mattress this size it's very compact and the first time I opened it was in the tent. I inflated it the first day and it held air all night but when I sent to bed the following night it needed to be topped off. I was a little concerned but it lasted the remaining 6 days without adding any air. I'm thinking it initially stretched or the temperature changes caused it to sag. The only con to the mattress is the pump that comes with it. I tried it and after a few min of not seeing results I grabbed an electric pump and had it inflated in about 30 seconds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicer than competition I compared this to the Lightspeed air mattress of the same dimensions and found that this REI mattress was more comfortable. The manual pump on this REI model, albeit tiring (aprox 5 minutes of pumping), gets you a much firmer mattress than the Lightspeed battery operated weak pump. The included REI air pump has a long enough hose that you can pump from outside the tent's side door. The material on this mattress is soft and bedsheets don't slide on it easily. The Lightspeed material is a bit more "plasticy"/slippery. When fully inflated it is so comfortable, that I would gladly offer it to guests sleeping over. At least as comfortable as a high quality Aerobed, just lower to the ground (6"). I haven't tried outdoors yet, but comparing both in my apt I felt the REI model was superior. More firm, nicer quality material, better pump, better stuff sack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Mattress I bought this last summer for a couple family camping trips. My family of four fit on it length ways; with a little foot overhang. That was easily remedied by laying on the slight diagonal. The mattress is easy to inflate and deflate. The pump is large, awkward and noisy, but that's only a minor issue (and the only issue with the whole product). It also stayed inflated over four nights. I then went on a solo trip with my kids, and it accommodated the three of us much easier and we were quite cozy. We even took this backpacking. The pump isn't ideal, but it fit in a pack my four year old carried. I also slept on this after moving, before buying a new mattress. I used it for two weeks and it held air perfectly and was very comfortable. I am back to buy another mattress for my children's own tent for this year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best I've ever owned. This is by far the most durable, lightest and most comfortable inflatable camping mattress I've purchased. I bought this for a camping trip in Palawan, Philippines, and then to give to my filipino girlfriend and her family. For the last four months, there have been no less than 2 people sleeping on this every single night - sometimes up to five petite women using it for sleep at night, and not once have they had to re-inflate. This is used not only for sleeping, but as furniture to sit on during the day by multiple members of the family, and it has yet to fail or lose air. I could not be more impressed, and will purchase another to deliver on my next trip there. Thank you REI for providing such high quality products. And, by the way, the whole family also loves the REI Kingdom 6-man tent I gave them for camping on their family's farm in the province. So easy to erect and so much space, comfort and protection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great air matress. Relatively easy to pump up. I really appreciate that it included the pump, and that you can roll the pump up with matters and it all fits inside the stuff sack. This mattress hasn't leaked during several 5 to 10 day trips, and is extremely comfortable. The price made me hesitate at first, but I've gone through so many of the cheap ones, I figured spending the money for quality (and the excellent REI guarantee) would be worth it. The first mattress I got split at the seam the first time I pumped it up. Thank goodness I tested it before taking it camping. REI exchanged it with no issues, and the second try worked great and has ever since. I would recommend this mattress, but make sure you test it at home first, just in case.

The accompanying pump has a DEFLATE port on the handle, which I would like to use.  If I connect one of the hose to the DEFLATE port, how do I connect the other end to the airbed? 

Asked by: SAR Man
Years after this question was first brought up REI still hasn't figured out that a one way valve on the Mattress will prevent air from being pumped out by the pump. Just putting the pump in deflate mode does you no good, you'll just break the one-way valve or pump. still a decent mattress just not designed to deflate quickly when you want to pack it up with the included pump.

Something missing on this product is the maximum weight load. Example most queens I have seen thus far put a rather paltry sum of 300lbs on the mattress.

Asked by: zhire
The recommended maximum load capacity for the Relax Air Queen Bed is 600 pounds.

Will this fit into the REI Halfdome 2+ ?

Asked by: Finnmark4
The bed and tent are both 56" wide, so the bed would need to be partially inflated outside the tent and then fully inflated in the tent. Be advised, the bed will be touching the side walls 6" up.

Can this be stored in a hot attic?  What's the max temperature this is safe to store in without damage?

Asked by: jasond2
While we don’t have a specific temperature range for storage of the Relax Air Bed, we don’t recommend that you store it in exceptionally warm temperatures, as this could cause the materials to degrade.

Has anyone tried this mattress on top of a 4" sleeper sofa mattress?  I'm looking for something to make a sofa bed more comfortable, and I love that this can be deflated and stored, as opposed to a memory foam topper.

Asked by: misk8e
We have not received any feedback for the REI Relax Air Bed of that kind. It may very well make your sofa bed more comfortable and does deflate for storage quite easily.

Often airbeds need more insulation on top than the sleeping bag provides.  Does this need that extra layer?  Or does it insulate like a thermarest?

Asked by: Aussie Astrid
The Relax Air Bed will not have any insulation (R-value) the way a Therm-a-Rest pad would. A sheet or blanket would be recommended over the bed.
