Single Folding Aluminum Camping Bed Camp Travel Outdoor Bed in Navy with Carry Bag
on 20 June 2014
Being of 'a certain age' I bought this camp bed to use at a festival, instead of an airbed as they tend to go down. It arrived as was estimated, and I took it home to test it in my living room. It was very quick and easy to set up. When I first put it up I thought it didn't seem very sturdy, but a couple of nights later I fell asleep on it and it was fine, thus proving that it wouldn't collapse underneath me and that it was comfortable!
I took it to the festival with an airbed as back up, as I still wasn't sure whether it would stand up to the uneven ground and being bashed about and also because it looked quite big in my living room, so I was worried it wouldn't fit into my tent! Luckily it did fit (my tent is a good size 3 man tent) and was very secure on the uneven festival campsite ground.
5 nights later, I left the festival with a perfectly intact camp bed and having had some of the best sleep at a festival that I've ever had.
I will now keep the bed at home, for use and future festivals and as an occassional night bed for any visitors.
As far as the size goes, I'm 5' 7" and lenghtwise I had plenty of room on it, also I didn't find it to be as narrow as I thought it might have felt.
The storage bag is strong, with sturdy handles which you could probably put over your shoulder to carry that way if you wanted to.
All in all Im very happy with this bed. I feel that it was money well spent, and I'd definitely recommend it to a friend.
