Pro: Takes 20 deep breaths to get it half full and comfortable. Narrow enough to fit into a regular sleeping bag. Con: Easy to poke a hole in. If used long enough, the baffles will start to come apart, turning it into a BIG air pillow. Recommendation: Buy a cheap sleeping bag, sew the opening of the bag to keep the air mattress in the sleeping bag, but leave the corner where the air plug is on open so you can inflate it. That way it will be impervious to small holes, ie cat claws, sharp twigs, etc. Have owned NUMEROUS coleman lite slims through the past 3 years for use on my bed to help with back and hip issues this way. After a half a year or year the baffles start to give out. But I weigh about 270lbs, so that's pretty good. Cheaper than a memory foam mattress (300-800 bucks) and better!
