Review: The Coleman Durarest Queen Mattress


This summer, I upgraded my  air mattress to the Coleman Durarest and headed out to Killbear Provincial Park (where we saw a bear. No biggie.) It was definitely time for a new air mattress, as I would regularly fall asleep on a nice high mattress, and wake up on a deflated mattress.


The Durarest Queen ($69.97) inflates up to 15″, is 45% lighter than a standard Coleman airbed, can hold up to 600lbs (woah) and is guaranteed not to leak thanks to the Coleman Airtight™ system. It’s also available in a Twin size for $49.97.


Set up was fast and easy. We pumped it up using an air pump connected to our car. It was filled up in no time, and I had a very comfortable sleep on it.


One of the most frustrating things in the world is to try to put an air mattress back into its teeny, tiny bag. That’s why I really like the way my Durarest mattress packed up.

A flap is attached to the end with instructions. You fold the mattress into itself, and then you roll it up, and use a drawstring to secure it. It still folds away tightly and neatly, but no wrestling with bags! It was great.

The Duraset Single mattress is available at Canadian Tire or WalMart. Find out more about it at
