The latest offering from AeroBed is the durable and PVC-free PakMat. A good proposition for camping trips, active holidays and festivals, the mattress inflates or deflates in one minute and rolls up to be stored inside its hand-pump, making transportation easy. The only downside: its 2kg weight means it's not exactly feather-light.
