The Amerisleep AS3 is one of the most popular models by Amerisleep. This mattress has a medium feel that contours very well but still offers enough support for stomach and back sleepers. What sets Amerisleep mattresses apart from most of the competition is that all their models come with Celliant technology built in. Celliant is a proprietary mix of 13 thermo-reactive minerals that are embedded into polyester fibers. This fiber then absorbs and re-emits infrared light energy emitted by your body. This can be done through multiple layers of fabric. The benefits of this technology is increased circulation which leads to better sleep and recovery. Let’s look at the mattress in detail in this Amerisleep AS3 mattress review.
Overview of the Amerisleep AS3
After you place your order, your Amerisleep mattress will arrive at your door in a box like the one below. No need to wait for a delivery company.
Here’s a pic of the mattress roll packed inside the box.
Here’s the mattress on the bed.
Finally, this is what it looks like a few minutes after opening it. As you can see it is already at full shape.
Here’s a video overview of the AS3. This mattress recovers quickly out of the box and had little off-gassing smell. This mattress comes with a standard 100-night trial with free shipping and free returns.

My Amerisleep AS3 Findings
Here’s another view from the side of the mattress.
It’s a minor detail but in my mind, it matters. The zipper system on this mattress is high quality. It’s easy to unzip and the zipper is actually in the middle so you don’t have to lift up the mattress to access it.
Here’s a picture of the layers of the mattress. Below the blue cover that you see above, there is a fire sock. I removed part of the fire sock to show you these layers. Again, these are cut clean. Some mattresses I have opened are warped towards the corners and don’t fully recover due to the use of too much glue.
Amerisleep uses a plant-based foam in their mattresses to lessen the environmental impact. I’m not sure the exact ratio but it is certainly nice to learn that they are trying to move the needle in the right direction. The foam is an open cell foam which means more breathability too. This mattress feels amazing and is breathable for an all foam mattress.
Here’s a clip showing motion transfer on the mattress which is basically none because it is a foam mattress.
Here’s a video showing the inside layers of the AS3 and how each reacts. The top layer is a little slower to recover because it provides the most contouring and pressure relief. The recovery is faster than most dense foam mattresses but not quite as fast of a recovery as something like an Avena foam. Basically, you won’t get that stuck feeling and the mattress is really easy to move around on.
My Amerisleep AS3 Recommendation
Amerisleep has a relatively long history in the online mattress space. The fact that they have retail stores in Arizona, Oregon, Texas and Colorado is a good indicator that they stand by their product and are confident that after you try their mattress you will be impressed. With Amerisleep you get a company with thousands of positive reviews, a long company history (at least in online mattress brand terms), the ability to try before you buy and all the benefits of Celliant fiber.
I particularly recommend the AS3 to sleepers that change positions at night. This is a very versatile mattress and should appeal to all sleepers.
