The Wenzel Insta-Bed Raised Air Bed with Never Flat Technology is designed for anyone who’s looking for the most comfortable and best air bed on the market! This mattress is extremely easy to setup and inflate — just plug it in and walk away for a few minutes while it finishes itself. Although the main pump is a bit loud (imagine a small vacuum cleaner), the secondary pump is whisper quiet and refills air automatically whenever it detects a slight change in pressure. There are three firmness settings — plush, medium, or firm — that allows you to sleep the way you want and it is able to maintain the same pressure setting throughout the night thanks to the patented Never Flat technology. This ability to quickly change firmness settings is great for people with neck or back problems.
The height of the bed off the floor is just about right and it doesn’t feel like you’re falling into the bed or climbing out of it. Putting it away is fairly simple too because the air escapes easily when you want it to and it folds up rather nicely for easy storage. Normal fitted sheets stay put and fit perfectly which is something not all designers of air mattresses seem to take into consideration. If you have a memory foam topper, you can put it on top of this inflatable mattress and you will experience the most comfortable bed you will ever sleep on!
As far as customer service goes, Wenzel is at the top of my list. My old blow up mattress sprang a hole that we couldn’t repair with the included patches after we had used it for maybe two weeks total. I called the customer service department and they immediately took action to replace the bed. This company was SO easy to deal with! All I had to do was take a couple pictures of the hole and fill out one form. We did it all online and I didn’t even have to ship the defective bed back… talk about convenience! I did this all on a Tuesday afternoon and by Friday morning we had a brand new inflatable bed on our doorstep. Wenzel gets two huge thumbs up for their customer service and effort to replace the damaged bed promptly and hassle-free.

If you’re looking for the Cadillac of air mattresses then look no further than the Wenzel Insta-Bed Raised Air Bed with Never Flat Technology. My kid and his friends have destroyed many inflatable beds over the years (and my dog, too) but this one is by far the most usable, durable, and best sleeping air bed I’ve ever owned. You can use this as a primary bed or as an excellent secondary bed for when you have guests or family members that would like to sleep over. If you’re a college student who’s moving into an apartment, I highly recommend this if you need a portable bed as it makes moving in and out much, much easier without sacrificing comfort. It’s a super durable and comfortable bed that’s better than most traditional mattresses and it’s far and above superior to all other blow up beds!
