Coleman Air Bed Queen Review 2

I know that choosing an air bed can be a drag. It’s a good thing that you stumbled upon this website because I honestly believe I can help.

Why should you read on? 

Two reasons:

  1. My reviews are unbiased and mostly based on the experiences of people using the product – no better way to get a good feel about whether some air bed is right for your needs
  2. I’ve been doing these reviews for years, and I know the industry inside out, so I can clarify some basics you make your decision

For example – do you think it would be useful to find out which companies are outsourcing their manufacturing overseas and which are not? Of course it would.

This is the kind of little things that I can help you with…

Let’s dig right into the review of this Coleman air bed.

First, let us take a look at the product specifications:

Coleman Air Bed Queen review

  • Added height will keep you comfortably off the floor (same height as a conventional mattress)
  • soft finish for a luxurious sleeping experience
  • the valve of the Airtight System uses a double lock design to eliminate any air leaks
  • Convenient and fast electric pump will inflate and deflate it in minutes
  • High quality carry pouch included

So, that’s what Coleman is saying. Of course they’ll say good things about their products, but let us put the product under real scrutiny by taking a look at what the people using the bed are saying about it. That’s the real test.

The PROs as per the owners of this bed:

  • an excellent bed…in spite of the fact that it’s a budget solution I have no problems with it after several months of every night use…
  • so far it seems very durable and I’ve seen almost no leaking…
  • my old Aerobed was making a loud irritating sound every time I try to turn, I guess it’s the plush finish but this Coleman doesn’t have that problem…
  • I didn’t expect much from this bed and I only ordered it for the moving but here I am sleeping on this comfy baby for almost 5 months now, it’s just as comfortable as a regular mattress…
  • Very good support for my injured back…
  • I slept on this bed at my friend’s house and then ordered one for my home as soon as we returned, amazing value for money…
  • Very simple and easy to set up and put away…
  • Holds air great, I only add some air once every 5 or 6 days…
  • I’ve been sleeping on this bed at my daughter’s house after her surgery and the fact that I had no problems switching to this bed from the high-end tempurpedic mattress I have at home says it all…
  • I love the finish, it feels great against the skin and the linen doesn’t slip at all…
  • Stays firm for days without adding air…
  • Much better then the single high…
  • Well built…you can see it from the moment you unpack it…
  • Super comfortable, amazing value for money…
  • Full 5 stars for this bed, great price and just the right size and height…
  • We entertain a lot during the summer and we go through guest beds like T-shirts, this is the first air bed to last for three seasons now…
  • For the price, it’s a bargain…
  • The extra height is great for my parents. It allows the seniors to get up and lay down with no problem…

CONs as per the users – negative reviews of the Coleman Queen:

  • The mattress develops a strong odor out of the box, so I would suggest inflating it a day or two before using it…
  • I can feel the rushes of cold air during the night, I need an extra blanket under the linen with this bed…
  • One of the seams started leaking after just a few months, I sent it back and I’m waiting for a replacement…

My “verdict” on the product:

First of all, let’s get some of our facts straight. This is an air bed, and there are some things that are common for all air beds and can’t be considered as flaws. A good example of this is the issue of the cold air rushes.

If you paid 10 times over the price of this bed and got a high-end air mattress, you would have the same issue if you are sleeping in a cold room. It’s just the air circulating inside, and if this is an problem for you, there’s no way around using an extra blanket or an extra foam pad with your bed.

All things considered, my first thought about this bed is:” Great value for your money.”

I have been reviewing air beds for so long and I know of products that cost twice as much but offer the same quality. So, it really is a bargain.

As with most air beds, how well it holds air is what makes or breaks a product. It’s good to see so few comments about air leaks and so many comments praising it’s ability to hold air over time. In those terms, this bed is a rare beast in its price range.

The plush top finish is a great touch and solves the slipping of the linen, which can be a real issue.

Overall, this bed makes for a great budget solution, and I see no true flaws. When I say true flaws I mean flaws that appear in a pattern and as a rule rather than an exception.
Simply put – it’s a good bed that offers a great bang for your buck.

    Hello,

    I recently bought an Intex Queen sized bed from Amazon but on the 28th day, for some random reason, on that night the seams started allowing air out. Since it’s under return window, I’m just returning it now. Do you think Coleman’s bed would work better? And one more point is that night the room got a bit cold. Do you think that might have been the reason? Even then, just for one night? Thanks, in advance, James.

      Hey Nik,

      To be honest, I don’t like what I’ve been seeing and hearing lately about Intex air mattress models and I have to go back to some of those Intex guides and reviews and update stuff I’ve been saying, I just still don’t have enough data. I am doing the research on what’s going on with the Intex blow-up mattresses but still haven’t found a pattern (some of them are the same in quality and some of them decline). When this happens, I dig around to see if anything has changed in the manufacturing (materials, outsourcing) but I’m still rubbing my chin about Intex.

      One more thing, even if there is a change if the way Intex does business with some of the models, I would not repair anything that fails the first day. That one would go back in a jiffy.

      In a word, I would go with a Coleman if those were my choices – some of these to be more exact https://www.bestairmattressguide.com/best-coleman-air-mattress/

      Having said that, if it’s not just Coleman vs. Intex I would go with the Dream Series – https://www.bestairmattressguide.com/air-mattress/review-soundasleep-dream-series/

      This baby is “giving a beating” to all the air beds out there at the moment.

      I hope you find this helpful,

      Cheershttps://www.bestairmattressguide.com/wp-admin/edit-comments.php#comments-form
