So it’s easier to move, transport and position; this makes it suitable for use for short periods of time. Placing blankets and sheets on an air mattress is possible, especially in higher-end models, thanks to the fact that they are often divided into 2 halves. A higher and a lower one, in this way you can easily reuse the sheets of your bed, without having to buy new ones.

Composed in waterproof latex or PCV (polyvinyl chloride), the air mattress, to avoid annoying noises due to the rubbing of the sheets and make it more comfortable, often has the upper surface flocked (ie similar to velvet to the touch); even if not all the products have this feature, most of the air mattresses currently on the market are equipped with them. Another peculiarity of the inflatable mattresses is that often having cushions integrated into the structure; so for those who must use them only one night at the campsite, they will not even have to bring their pillows.
