In my June Favourites 2016 post I talked about a product called LayBag. The LayBag is an ultralight, inflatable sofa which I, after seeing all the cool videos about it, just had to try out. In the videos it looks so easy to inflate it within seconds and deflate it just as quickly. I was very curious whether the LayBag could really be as amazing as it appeared to be. A few weeks ago my gorgeously pink LayBag came in the mail and today I’ll be reviewing it for you.
My first impression was that the LayBag is indeed very light and easy to carry around. I also love the colour of course. 🙂 Unpacked I was a little startled that it didn’t come with a manual but later I realised that it’s pretty self-explanatory especially after watching the videos on the LayBag website. The only thing which took me a while to figure out was that there are two sides to fill air in and not just one as I had thought.
The first time I tried to fill the LayBag with air I was inside and didn’t have a lot of room to move around and where there also wasn’t any wind. Inside it took me about 2-3 swoops on each side to fill it. Also the LayBag wasn’t completely filled with air but the good thing is that you can just roll it up a bit smaller to get the same fullness of the sofa. It’s just a little shorter. Outside it was a lot easier with more space and wind. When a little wind is blowing it really only takes 1-2 scoops of air into each side of the LayBag. That impressed me a lot as I hadn’t truly believed it to be so easy and fast.
Here a short video where you can see how to inflate the LayBag.
Deflating is just as easy. All you need to do is unclip the end and roll it up letting the air swoosh out automatically. It doesn’t take me more than 30 seconds and the LayBag also fits into the carry bag neatly.
The material is very thin but apparently you can use it on nearly any surface. So far I’ve tried it on grass, rocks, sand and water and it’s still standing strong. On water it’s extremely fun because it’s like a little inflatable boat to lie and relax on.
The only downside I’ve found so far is that the LayBag deflates a little when you lie on it and get up again so after a while you need to fill it with some more air or roll it up a little tighter. Honestly though I find that is a very small price to pay in comparison to all the amazing benefits of the LayBag.
Lastly I’d like to share some amazing news with you. Besides the Classic LayBag there is also the new LayBag Rocca inflatable chair. Below you can see what it’s all about in their video.
Have you tried the LayBag? What do you think about it?
