I first discovered the Coleman 3-Piece Air Mattress Combo at the beach over the summer of 2015.

My wife and I were enjoying a romantic evening cuddled up inside of our tent on a hammock and watching the sunset. Unfortunately, we had a terrible problem with our hammock; there was a leak.

It was this leak problem that allowed me to discover the Coleman 3-Piece Air Mattress Combo, which promised better support and more durability than a typical air mattress.

The dual-action pump was very convenient and easy to use. All I had to do was hook up the tubes to the air pump, then fold up the cot and unfold the mattress. The air pump quickly inflated the air mattresses to capacity, and I never had to worry that the springs would pop.

The Coleman 3-Piece Air Mattress also comes with 2 side tables that can either be folded up and stored inside of the cot or removed for use on the ground. These side tables are great, because they solve the storage problem commonly caused by the need to store a pump, cot, and air mattress inside of a tent.

All in all, the Coleman 3-Piece Air Mattress Combo is the "un-hammock" and a very welcome addition to any camping trip.
