The Outwell Laguna Hills L is a large camp-bed. You can use it with a sleeping mat too.

Camp-beds can be a bit of a luxury item. If you have one set-up in your tent, camping can feel very different, and they can give you a better night’s sleep as you are raised up and away from the cold ground.

However, I’ve tried and tested a fair few camp-beds, and there are a couple of ways a poor camp-bed can ruin your night’s sleep.

  1. I’ve felt the supports on some poorly designed camp-beds. Not very comfortable.
  2. The material can rub on the supports, making quite a loud noise when you move, especially in a quiet tent at night.

We’ve had the Outwell Posadas bed in the past from Outwell, which was very good, so when I visited Outwell’s 2020 season launch, I had the opportunity to try all their beds! 🙂

The bed I liked the most this year is the Outwell Laguna Hills L, and fortunately, Outwell agreed to send me one to review 😀

The Outwell Laguna Hills L – Packed Away

As you might have guessed from the L in the name, this is a larger than normal camp-bed.

Camp-beds can be quite large to transport, so how large is the Laguna Hills L bed when folded?

Languna Hills Bed Folded

The Laguna Hills L bed comes in a carry case, with the legs folded and secured with a strap to keep them tight together.

While folded away in its bag, the camp-bed measures 101 cm long, 19 cm wide, and 8 cm tall when laying flat. A few of these beds will easily fit in most car boots.

Setting up the Camp-Bed

The camp-bed is straightforward to put together, but you must do one thing before locking the legs in place, and that’s to make sure the material is over the ends of the bed. There are pockets on each corner of the bed that the frame slots in to. It’s a lot easier to do this while the bed is folded.

Then, simply unfold the legs and lock them in place.

How comfortable is the bed?

Well, if you aren’t used to camp-beds, then let me tell you: they aren’t like your bed at home as there’s no mattress.

However, laying on the Laguna Hills L I found OK for a camp-bed. It’s not too firm, with a little bit of flex in the fabric, but firm enough to support you. It also comes with a built-in headrest.

It comes complete with a small headrest. Though I’d still use a pillow with it.

Can I use a mattress with the camp-bed?

Yes! At each corner of the bed, you’ll find elastic straps. These are to hold a camping mattress in place.

We even tested it with the massive 16 cm deep Outwell Dreamboat mat.

Verdict

I really like this camp-bed, especially when paired with a mattress or airbed. Sleeping with it in this combination does feel like a regular bed at home.

The Laguna Hills L is big and wide, doesn’t make a noise, and packs down reasonably small for such a large bed.

There’s also plenty more storage space underneath the bed 🙂

Plenty of space underneath the bed to store bags and things.

We gladly give it the thumbs-up award.
