Travel mattresses can be as good as mattress you use at home ... and they should be. Nowadays, there's no reason to put up with an unhealthy sleep situation caused by a substandard mattress. Many people who are serious about enjoying their travel are giving up their bedrolls, creaky cots, leaky inflatable air mattresses, and cheap foam chunks, and purchasing ergonomically correct, space-economizing mattresses.

When we're young, we can handle all kinds of conditions: sleeping on floors, couches, outdoors on the grass, and so on. However, once we reach a certain age, even a couch takes its toll. This is totally natural, however, for the human musculoskeletal system must be properly aligned during sleep. Sagging couches, hard floors, or bad pillows will certainly be felt the next day, through muscle soreness and stiffness.

Travel Mattress Basics

Many travelers figure if they're going to invest their hard-earned time and money in traveling, they might as well do it right. For them, this means avoiding pitfalls that may undermine their enjoyment of the actual travel experience. One of these pitfalls is a poor sleep situation. Whether your trip is for just a few days or the whole summer, you certainly want to be comfortable and well rested, not tired, sore, and cranky.

To this end, travel mattresses are available in high-tech foam materials that were originally designed to cradle NASA astronauts on their long space flights. Because of the excellent supportive nature of the foam, not much height is needed for your mattress. In fact, travel mattresses can be custom made to fit any space, conserving on length and width as well.
