This Coleman Hand Pump is large and bulky, but does the job of inflation quite well if you can handle its size and burning some calories. I purchased this pump several years ago as a backup camping pump to an electric model and it works well for just about any inflatable job you can think of.
I use my normal electric pump to blow up my air mattress to a certain point with ease, than use this dual action pump to really get it full all the way. The dual action feature means you can inflate or deflate [suck air] most inflatable devices. The pumps efficient design means it works to inflate with your upward or downward motion. This feature means the pump works fast and you can use it to really inflate things to capacity.
Now on the downside this pump is big. It is much too bulky if you need to carry it any distance or if you are limited on space. Another thing people may dislike about this Coleman pump is it is noisy and labor intensive. However, if you want a pump that works great and gets the job done you can’t go wrong with this Coleman model.
