1. Nash MF60 Indulgence All Season 4 Fold Sleep System

Let’s begin with the famed ‘Nash Indulgence’ bedchair, with this one been the latest MF60 Indulgence All Season 4 Fold Sleep System

Nash MF60 Indulgence SS4 Sleep System

It really is the ultimate in comfort and luxury on the bank, with a refreshing redesign that includes some amazing innovations you won’t find anywhere else!

This includes USB connectivity to charge your mobile, and a new spring-loaded leg assembly.

The bedchair itself features a reinforced lumbar section for improved back support when you’re lying flat.

If you do like to spread yourself out, your weight is evenly distributed across the mattress too.

When it’s time to finish up, the whole carp sleep system packs down quickly and easily thanks to a spring loaded leg assembly, as well enlarged hinge mechanisms which makes it easy.

That’s not all the features either, because Nash have made it easy to attach accessories such as the shroud, pillow and mattress sheet using fast-fit elasticated toggles. Nice one Nash!

What about the sleeping bag you ask? Well, the ‘duvet’ underside offers up a smooth nylon so you won’t catch it on anything when you need to tend to a bite.

When you get in, you’ll feel a nice micro fleece material which covers the MF60 memory foam mattress.

There are also inner baffles to keep the heat in (ideal for winter) and full length draught baffles which are self-explanatory.

Finally, heavy duty crash zips make it easy for you to get in and out – at speed.

We’ve listed the rest of the technical details below.

Well, after using this for three nights, I can safely say that I did not want to get out! I don’t think me calling it ‘hotel quality’ would be an injustice either.

It was super comfortable, no noise was created when I moved around (I can be quite restless the first night) and it wasn’t bulky or heavy enough for me to worry about setting it up, or packing it way.

The best carp fishing bedchair for 2022? I would say most definitely.

7. JRC Cocoon 2g Levelbed

Looking for a flawless sleeping experience when out on the bank? Then look no further than the JRC Cocoon 2G Super Levelbed!

JRC Cocoon 2G Super Levelbed

Its low mass aluminum frame assembly ensures a completely flat surface, while the extravagantly dense padded mattress and anti-sagging system provide unrivalled comfort.

Even when setting up on uneven terrain, you can adjust the bedchair to ensure you sleep on a completely flat surface, meaning no more rolling to one side, or waking up with a sore back due to an unnatural sleeping position.

From my experience fishing overnight on the levelbed, the mattress was more padded than my bed at home! (Don’t tell the missus!)

JRC tells us that practically any sleeping bag will fit onto this due to oversized brackets that allow you to connect and secure your chosen bag.

JRC Cocoon 2G bedchair

Sometimes, when it sadly comes to packing up and heading for home, other bedchairs feature lots of elastic in and around the base support. However, the levelbed does not – meaning it folds quickly and compactly.

Other quirky features include a pouch for storing valuables close to you, such as your phone and wallet, whilst an integrated pillow offers better comfort around your shoulders, neck and head to aid a good nights sleep.

I would give this an 8 out of 10, which is a solid score for a sub-£150 bedchair!

If, like me, you prefer to travel as light as possible, then you will love that it weighs just under 10kg – which is very light compared to most other bedchairs.

The bedchair is very quick to setup, and whether you opt to use your own sleeping bag, or upgrade the system, I am sure you will be delighted with the build quality, the ability to carry around due to how light is, and best of all, the memory foam which truly does offer premium comfort all night long.
