basically an air mattress with its own pump

this mattress has no heat reflection capabilities so it is a summer mattress not a 4 season one. it took me about 10 minutes to blow it up using the pump in the mattress. the trick to the pump is slow strokes. fast strokes will not work. it has two valves on top (no idea why two) and a simple plug on the bottom. the valves are nice for slowly letting air out until you have the right softness. very comfy. if you are 6 feet or over i think this will be too short for you.
