Last week we had a full house while we hosted parents, siblings, and cousins for Thanksgiving festivities. Every bedroom was filled, with a few kiddos sprawled on the floor. Typically we pull out our camper’s bunk mattresses to use as additional “beds” for such situations. We top them with a sleeping bag or sheets and usually our little guests are good to go, but it’s certainly not the most convenient of solutions. So when I recently learned about Bundle Beds–an innovative, all-in-one sleeping bag system–I was intrigued by the concept that offered a smart and simple sleep solution. The “bundle” roll–which comes in sizes for adults or children–includes everything you need for a great night’s sleep: a self-inflating air mattress, a duvet with jersey cotton sheets, and a down-like pillow with cover. Our little adventurers were excited to give the kids’ size Bundle a trial run–and they have given this camping bedding a big thumbs up.
Note: Although we received a sample for review purposes, we were not financially compensated for this post. The opinions are completely our own.
The all-in-one sleeping bag concept that defines Bundle Beds makes it a great product for a variety of uses. As an RVing family, we could use the Bundle Bed in the camper to create additional–and comfortable!–sleeping space when cousins or friends tag along on camping trips. Many campers have dinettes that break down into beds, and a Bundle Bed could easily be placed on top to create a cozy sleep spot. (Because, let’s be honest: Most dinettes are not comfortable places to sleep due to all the gaps from the cushions. Using a Bundle Bed, though, would rectify the situation because of its comfy, built-in air mattress.) And because of the streamlined design, rolling the bed back up would take just a few minutes each morning.
For tent campers, we see awesome potential to create comfortable sleeping quarters for the whole family–without having to lug a huge air mattress and pump. The Bundle Bed is pretty compact given its design as an all-in-one sleeping bag. But it’s definitely not the kind of bag you would want to take on a backpacking trip due to its size and weight.
Bundle Beds are also a great product to have on hand in your home. Whether you are hosting sleep overs, family get-togethers like we did this Thanksgiving, or entertaining the grandkids, Bundle Beds will provide simple and smart sleeping accommodations.
Using the Bundle Bed is easy-peasy. Below Jarrett gives a quick demo showing how quickly you can unroll it and be ready for bed. (Note: The internal air mattress is self-inflating, so you do not need to blow air in; it will fill on its own. Bundle Beds recommends you store the product unrolled and inflated under a bed or in a closet; if you store it rolled and deflated for long periods, you may need to use several breaths to restore the foam loft.)
Aside from the awesome all-in-one design, one of the other things I loved the most about this sleeping bag is that everything can be removed from the bag to be washed. The pillow case and duvet cover unbutton easily and then you can remove the duvet and pillow from the covers.
