We have a look at the Breezy Bed; a fun way to lounge around at the campsite, at a picnic, or just at home in your garden.
This has to be one of the coolest camping gadgets around at the moment – Breezy Bed. It’s a new product on the market and takes outdoors chilling to a whole new level! It’s portable inflatable furniture, but no pumping, blowing involved you just use a breeze to fill it with air.
It’s made from waterproof polyester and weighing in at just 1.4kg, it is very light to carry around so that you can chill anywhere.
So how does it work?
It comes in a carry case. You just take it out of the carry case, unroll it drag it towards a breeze and the bed inflates – simple eh?! To seal, you fold over the opening ( like you would with a dry bag ) and clip together.
We took our Breezy bed on its first adventure: camping. We are used to pumping up tents and beds, so we were very intrigued and excited to see how the Breezy bed would perform.
The first occasion we used it was a hot day with not much breeze, and we were still able to inflate the bed.
I would say there is a bit of a technique to inflate the bed. You don’t have to run around like mad things ( like we did! )
The advice from Breezy Bed was to take it easy and let the air glide in. It doesn’t have to be a particularly breezy day to fill it with air. How much air you inflate it with obviously dictates how soft or hard the bed is.
While perfecting our technique our first attempts resulted in a semi-inflated bed, a bit like a bouncy castle! The kids had great fun with it and thought it was amusing watching me roll off it!
They are extremely comfortable; you can use it as a chair to sit on or as a lounger to lie down on.
According to Breezy bed they stay inflated for approx 5 hrs, we have not put that to the test yet will update this post when we do.
The fact that it is so light means there are lots of opportunities to use it, pop in your rucksack and take it up a hill, camping, festivals, outdoor events, picnics and parks. You can simply use it in the garden too.
We love cool outdoor gadgets that make the outdoors, even more, fun. This is one of those novel products you never knew you needed……but you do now!
- Lightweight and small to pack for picnics or camping.
- Easy to create a sun lounger or a seat for a couple of you.
- Needs a bit of practice to get it to inflate.
