    An absolutely impractical and uncomfortable item. Unless it's fully inflated it's of not real comfort to be honest.

    Got this when I was buying furniture for the apartment and wanted a temporary fix to seat guests.

    The badly photoshopped container -

    The sofa, inflated - (There are 3 chambers that have to be inflated separately)

    To be honest, it is quite comfortable, but that's only when the air is full and its nice and bouncy.

    It can accommodate 2 people, and 3 would be risking a leak or worse an explosion of the seam.

    Here's a standard sized Lays Chips bag for size reference.

    Issues - The flap that connects the bottom base to the top is too long to accommodate the various options and positions/contortions it can be kept in. This creates for an extremely uncomfortable arrangement if you are planning to use it in any position, other than a flat bed or a sofa.

    Here's a pic explaining why when put in lounger mode -

    You can see the gap and the difference in angle.

    Moreover this causes -

    Mis-alignment of the 2 cushions like shown above, and -

    So All in all, I would rate this a 3/5. Its good for kids, and that's about it. Besides you'll have to keep sharp, pointy things away from it.

    The sofa does come with a pump to inflate/deflate which is extremely handy and fast. Works quite well as a leaf blower as well :D

    Good for -

    - Having fun, just lounging around, balcony, lawn etc

    Bad for -

    - Using as an actual alternate for sleeping, mattress or replacing a sofa/item of furniture in the house.
