An all-in-one sleeping bag and mattress.

The concept behind the Buddle Bed started out with the Swag Bag that’s used in Australia. This is a combined sleeping bag and bedroll. Just unroll and sleep.

So how well does a concept for the Australian outback work for UK camping?

The Bundle Bed

Bundle Beds sent us over a bed to review.

First impressions were that the product looks well made and is sturdy.

It had really rugged buckles and straps: all good signs that it is designed for a lot of wear and tear.

However, by combining the bedding into one roll, the bundle was quite large – and this is the child’s sized bed.

This might present an issue with storing and transporting the bundle bed.

 

Setting up the Bed

Once unrolled, the bed inflates like a normal air mat, where you have to blow into the valve.

Another neat addition is that the bed comes with a pillow too.

Bed Comfort

Once inflated, the bed feels very similar to any other camping air bed but comes with a fitted sheet, so feels more like a bed at home.

It’s not quite as comfortable as our Outwell Dreamboat or Vango Shangri La, but it’s still a good bed.

Unlike a sleeping bag, the bundle bed comes with a duvet.

Verdict

Our little tester liked using the bundle bed.

However, for camping, I can see a few potential drawbacks.

The first, as I’ve already mentioned, is the size.  A few of these and you won’t have much space for anything else.

Next is the cost. Yes, decent camping mats and sleeping bags can get expensive, but is the bundle bed as flexible?

Finally, it’s the fact that it’s a duvet. Yes, a 15-tog warm duvet. However, when camping in the UK, unlike the Australian outback, a lot of heat is lost through the cold ground. So for anything other than warm summer nights, I recommend you still insulate underneath the Bundle Bed. See our tips on keeping warm when camping.
