I never knew that air matresses were such a fine art... Well, not an art but certainly there is a variety that should be appreciated. I remember sleeping on one in Australia that was little more than an airbed that you'd use to float on a swimmig pool. There was another that I slept on that was help up by numerous iron rods that would be jabbing in various parts of your body as the matress deflated overnight. Most recently, I have been sleeping on a very comfortable, self-inflating queen-sized air-matress.
Much nicer than conventional brands.
