The ALPS Mountaineering Velocity air bed is a great air bed whether you have out-of-town guests staying for the weekend or you're camping in the great outdoors. It is composed of a durable, completely PVC-free fabric, that's very lightweight. The coil system used, makes a solid and comfortable sleeping surface for a great night's sleep. The included state-of-the art pump comes with a wall charger and car charger so you can charge your pump wherever you are. The pump inflates and deflates your air bed, which is a great feature. In just minutes, your air bed inflates and is ready to use. When it's time to pack up the air bed, having a pump that deflates your bed is a huge benefit, because it quickly gets all of the air out so you can fold it up and get it compactly back into the included stuff sack.

I shed one star off this bad boy only because I wish the air pump would last longer. It seems to only get you one solid air fill per charge. Would be nice to get more air out of it or at least allow you to charge it on a portable/solar USB charger.
I was pleasantly surprised upon opening the box. This is definitely PVC-free, and nontoxic. Pvc, as you may know, has an overwhelming, distinct chemical odor of vinyl(pvc=polyvinyl chloride.) so that is certainly as advertised!
The mattress arrived neatly folded inside of its own drawstring pouch of the same green color, along with the pump, charger, and a car adapter! And of course the nozzle adapters to fit the inflation opening of the mattress(nozzle adapter has 3 sizes all in one part, only 2 of them are used for this item however as the 3rd size nozzle is way too skinny for either opening.)
The mattress is made of a sturdy, strong material. A material that has no odors.
I ordered the twin sized mattress.
REMINDER!!! The air pump charger must be charged for a full 12 hours before the very first use! So if you need to use the mattress soon after you receive it, you want to plug this in right away! I had read the reviews and description of this note, yet I had forgot it by the time I opened up my mattress and needed to use it.
The air pump works well once the battery is charged. If you worry of the small electric pump failing, there are manual pumps that I've seen here on Amazon which you may want to also check out. I think it would be a great backup to have, say for camping or some other outing. The manual air pumps I've seen are quite inexpensive.
The pump that was included only took maybe 2 minutes or so to fully inflate the twin air bed.
Note that there are two valves that twist open on the mattress. Use the large fully open valve first, to inflate it until it's almost full, then close that one tightly and open the second valve, which only allows air into the mattress, and won't let any air out. If you used only the second smaller valve that doesn't let any air out to inflate it from when it's flat, it would probably take a time longer and may also drain the pump battery faster as another reviewing kindly mentioned.
The mattress, once fully inflated, is very comfortable, and is also quite sturdy for an air mattress. Not a lot of bouncing around like you may think of with air beds. It is a very good quality, very comfortable air bed!
I haven't yet had to put it back into the pouch that it neatly arrived in, but when I need to, I would first open the large valve and let the majority of the air out on its own, then use the DEFLATE nozzle on the included air pump to remove the remaining air until it's totally flat again and can be easily folded and slid back into the drawstring pouch, which FYI the mattress was not stuffed into upon arrival, rather it had wiggle room enough that when I first opened the mattress pouch I was able to turn the pouch upside down and have the flat folded mattress simply slide right out. Thus, I doubt it will be difficult to pack up the mattress again like unto when it was new.
I got this mattress at full price and did not receive any discounts or anything for my review. I'm writing this review so others can learn of my experience with this item. I would definitely recommend it! Two thumbs up!
