Our previous review has not appeared so I will keep this one brief. Bought this for a road trip to the Orkney's Faulty inflation valve, deflation is a joke. Ours looked slightly faded so may have been used for shop display. This mattress is not fit for purpose. Only consolation is we didn't pay the full price. I've been camping for 50+ years so hope my experience and advice counts for something. My advice is save your money. ps: If you're making an in shop purchase get them to give you a demo ; ]
Vango Shangri-La double mattress
Excellent service from Newquay Camping Shop and the mattress is so comfortable- better than our own bed! Inflates by itself really well - can be a bit tricky to get back in bag but the comfort makes up for it - would definitely recommend
Shangri La? Not my idea of paradise!
Purchased for our tent box and an absolute nightmare to inflate and deflate. 'Self Inflating? Someone in advertising is having a laugh albeit at the customer's expense. In addition, it took two of us sitting on it bouncing up and down for ten minutes as we tried to deflate it. Very awkward to deflate and roll up. Either we've bought a faulty product or the Vango Shangri-La II Double Self Inflating Mattress is not fit for purpose. Also, the mattress looked slightly sun bleached. We would most definitely return it. However, as we have have 'tested' it we probably wouldn't get a refund. Sale price was £219.00 reduced from a whopping £340.00. Our advice. Avoid.
Great when inflated, but won't inflate
Its an extremely comfy mattress, but we are having to manually inflate and deflate it. It doesnt seem to be "remembering" its inflated state yet - perhaps it takes time I'm not sure.
Lives up to the hype and a deserved reputation
We played with the idea for over a year after looking at reviews. Finally but the bullet and bought one in the hope it meant we could extend camping trips to 4 nights+. It’s super comfy and easier to inflate than an airbed however after two times putting it up we feel we need to give it a little boost with the pump despite ‘activating the foam’ as per the instructions but hopefully the more it is used the less like this will be necessary. It takes the two of us to compact it down to the smallest size but we are limited on space in the car (certainly worth keeping in mind). Overall if you can stretch the budget and think sleeping arrangements are a valued investment then don’t hesitate. I will add the sale went on two weeks after we purchased which was a grievance.
