Does this have a valve for manual inflation?

I really wanted to like this. Alas, it only lasted a few night's sleep before a puncture took the air out. I expected much more durability for this kind of money.

While it lasted it was okay, but I'm much more comfortable in a hammock. Maybe woot! will bring back those $20 hammocks, which are a decent deal! ;-)

The air mattresses I've owned in the past have one distinct advantage over any other type of bed. No matter what happens, you can always clean it off very easily, which is why I would take one of these with some cheap blankets any day over the most expensive sleeping bag when camping, or perhaps for a messy kid indoors. They're also obviously way more comfortable then the ground or floor.

Woot won't let me have a cool signature

This bed made sleeping 9 nights straight in a tent enjoyable with our 5 mos. old baby in one of those "we aren't going to let having our first baby keep us from doing the things we love" sort of a road trip.It lasted us through most of the following summer and then started deflating overnight. We couldn't find any leaks or holes, so we returned it and got a replacement. Haven't used that one yet. Despite that issue, we love this mattress and it has allowed our adventurous family lifestyle to continue in comfort.

No. It would not fit a standard hand pump used to fill rafts, pool floaties, etc. And if you forget to plug the pump in before your trip you are SOL because it doesn't run on regular batteries.

We've had a couple AeroBed Endura Bed air mattresses for several years (since 2008 or so) and they've been great. They are the best air mattresses we've ever had; much stronger than any others I've come across. They also came with a good rechargeable pump (they still hold a decent charge today with the original built-in battery), AND had a normal sized fill/deflate valve with a twist lock so no caps to fiddle with and lose.

Unfortunately, one of the Endura Beds finally sprung a slow leak and I can't find it to patch it. Also unfortunately, the Endura Bed seems to have been discontinued a year or two ago for unknown reasons.

Anyway, that means I'm looking for a replacement, but based on a comment or two above, this Kelty doesn't sound like it would be nearly as durable, and it also doesn't seem to have the standard fill valve either. I could still potentially be convinced these are good, but it's not looking too promising thus far, at least for our purposes.

I know the normal Aerobeds aren't anywhere near as durable and the so-called "All-Terrain" ones don't seem all that much better. Does any company still make a good quality airbed that won't spring a leak even if used outdoors or kicked around a bit (or in some cases if you merely look at the mattress funny)?

I don't have any experience with the Kelty, but the one time I bought an Intex it lasted through only one use and then I basically had to throw it out, but maybe I was just unlucky. Also this Woot! is PVC free and comes with a rechargeable air pump that the above doesn't include. That one looks like it has to be plugged into a wall outlet to inflate or deflate. So the Kelty would be a much better choice for use for camping-type purposes.

They actually do have a couple of hammocks up, did you notice, they're hidden away in a Plus sale.

I have this bed. It's great - holds air overnight and is SUPER lightweight - nothing like an air mattress that you would use at home.

Not entirely - you can plug it into your car's DC port to charge it. As long as you keep the plug with the unit, the worst that can happen is you'll need to waste some gas to charge it up.
