Strongly thinking of getting one of these for this years burn, any experiences / reviews?
Finding it hard to get comprehensive reviews online (beyond videos of people filling them up)....mainly interested in how long they really hold air in for, comfortable enough to sleep on etc

http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/2015869434 ... noapp=true Presenting....The Imposter. $9, Free shipping and I think it has a plastic liner. Stays up for 3 to 6 hours. Hummmm. Probably not a good investment.

Saw those myself, also a couple youtube comments where they're discussed & the opinion seems to be that they're made from sub standard materials & dont last as long
€80 is a big chunk of change to lay out for the branded ones though :?

Especially if the company doesn't even have a contact number where you can ask those kinds of questions.

Saw several used to varying degrees of success this year at Bonnaroo. The folks that did get them inflated (that seemed to be the biggest issue) seemed quite cozy in them. I did not notice anyone having to re-inflate theirs once they were setup but I also was on walkabout and not in the same place for to long.

There seems to be a knack to it where you fill each compartment separately, lots of ppl getting it wrong on youtube an being ripped on in the comments :lol:

May consider one so!

My friend has one in Chicago and she loves hers. She uses it all the time out by the lake. FWIW

I have one by a company called Fat boy.
My problem was getting the chambers filled especially because I'm short. But I'm thinking with the Playa winds it might be considerably easier?
