This mattress is comfortable, but it is not very durable. I bought this mattress when I moved out of my old apartment and threw out my old mattress. At first, I thought that this air mattress would work well as a transitional mattress - one that I could use while I get settled and looked for new furniture. Well, it did its job. It was easy to move and set up and gave me a bed when that was the only piece of furniture in my apartment. I slept very well on it. In fact, I slept so well that I wanted to use it as my permanent mattress. I put a pillow top cover on it and draped sheets around it to hide the plastic/rubber. It worked great for a while. But after a while, the air would leak a little and it would start to deflate. That's no big deal since I just put more air in. The big problem is that the rubber band/binding around the mattress started to buckle. When I moved around a lot, the buckling became worse. Eventually, all the rubber band was gone and the mattress looked bloated. I lived with this for a while, until a big whole formed where the seams that held the band was. A dime sized whole eventually developed and I had to throw the mattress away. So it's good, but designed for short-term use.
