My eLuxury Supply Findings

For a foam hybrid mattress, I would classify it on the softer end of the spectrum, probably a medium soft. I do like how all the layers transition well. With some mattresses, you will feel the transition from foam to hitting the springs as you lay down. That’s not the case here.

Here’s a picture of my 14 lb. bowling ball on the mattress to give you an idea of how much it will sink..

Sink on the eluxury supply mattress

Here’s another video showing motion transfer. This mattress has very little motion transfer. I think that’s because there are softer foams on the top layer which absorb most of the impact. It does have coils but micro coils really don’t transfer motion. These coils provide just a little more contouring that foam alone cannot provide.

Here’s a video that shows how well the mattress dissipates heat. I would say that this mattress is sort of middle of the road for heat dissipation. If your primary concern is sleeping hot there are better choices out there but I didn’t notice it to necessarily sleep hot.

My eLuxury Supply Recommendation

There are other micro coil and foam mattresses on the market with similar construction, however, at $1,000 for a queen size this is a pretty good deal. Among the other microcoil mattresses this one is slightly softer. It lacks some of the cooling features such as a phase change cover but if you aren’t a hot sleeper, you won’t miss this. Eluxury has a 120 night hassle free return policy so there’s no risk in trying it out.

I recommend this mattress for people that like a soft foam mattress but want just a little more push back that foam alone cannot provide. With the micro coil system you get the benefits of having a softer, denser foam at the top while the micro coils can do the work of springing it back to life a little quicker.

Construction of the Bear Hybrid Mattress

Here’s a closer look at the individual layers. Note that the coils are inside the middle of the mattress.

Bear Hybrid Mattress Layers

My Bear Hybrid Findings

The Bear mattress has a more plush feel than the original Bear mattress. When compared to other micro coil and foam mattress the Bear is one of the most plush I have tried. In the picture below you can see that the cover plays a large role in the cushy feel. The cover is quilted and super soft so you get a nice hug when you lie down.

Bear Hybrid Mattress Soft

The coils in this mattress aren’t really there to provide any bounce. Instead, they are used for breathability and for support.  The coils are firm enough to provide subtle contouring but not too firm where you feel like you have to find them to get comfortable.

Here’s a video illustrating motion transfer on the mattress. As you can see, the motion transfer is minimal and similar to an all-foam bed with a pillow top feel.

To access the inside of the mattress, there’s a zipper located at the bottom corner. There’s really no reason you would need to access the inside but if you want to take a peek at how it’s made this is the way to do it.

Bear Mattress Zipper

Here’s a video that shows how each layer reacts. Notice that the top layer is made with a more springy foam. Normally mattresses that use this type of foam on the top layer don’t conform all that well but since the cover is made with a thick quilted padding, that’s not the case with this mattress.

Here’s another shot of the top layer of the mattress. As you can see there are actually two pieces of foam side by side on this mattress. I’m not sure why it was designed this way other than to reduce motion tranfer among partners. Since it is cut in half, you won’t get any pulling in either direction.

bear mattress sides

Here’s a clip that shows where the springs are located in the Bear Hybrid mattress. I had to cut into the mattress and tear out some foam to get to, which I don’t recommend but I wanted to ensure that they are there so readers know how they work.

Below is a video shot with my thermal camera to illustrate heat retention. You will see in the video that heat doesn’t linger on the mattress all that long. I was really suprised by this result as I though the quilted cover would trap more heat than it did.

My Bear Hybrid Mattress Recommendation

Bear is a mattress fits well with an athletic lifestyle. The Celliant technology in this mattress is great for people who regularly exercise and need to recover to their fullest for the next day. As I understand the technology, the benefits of the fiber will penetrate through a mattress pad and set of sheets so it’s ok to add layers to the mattress. I really like mattresses that come with this type of added benefit. If you have to go to bed anyway, you might as well get something else out of the mattress. while you sleep.

Another type of technology similar to this is the Tom Brady pajamas from Under Armor. These use a material that seems to be similar to Celliant. What I like about the Bear Mattress is that you don’t have to remember to wear the same pajamas every night, you simply go to sleep in a great mattress.

I recommend the Bear Hybrid mattress to people who are interested in trying Celliant technology, want a mattress with more of a plush feel but don’t like the stuck in the mud feeling of an all foam mattress and a mattress that sleeps relatively cool.

This mattress is no longer available. Check out the Nest Alexander Hybrid as an alternative. 

 

Overview of the Alexander Hybrid Luxury Contour

This mattress is available exclusively through Nest Bedding. After placing your order it should arrive in about 5-7 business days. With all the Nest mattresses, this one also arrives in a box which makes it easy to transport to your bedroom and it is shipped by FedEx so no need to wait for a delivery person to arrive at your door.

Below is a video overview of the mattress including some of the highlights and what sets it apart from the Alexander Hybrid.

 

Construction of the Alexander Luxury Hybrid Contour

Below are the construction details of the Alexander Luxury Hybrid Contour as listed on the Nest Bedding website.

  • 1.5″ 2.5 lb. Copper Phase Change Gel Memory Foam with Phase Change Infused Surface for Next Level Cooling Experience
  • 2″ 3 lb. Energex Foam
  • 1″ 4 lb. Visco Soft Memory Foam
  • 3″ 1300 Micro Coil System
  • 4″ High-Density Foam Edge Support Core

Here’s a closeup of the cover of the mattress which uses a generous amount of phase change material for a cool to the touch feel.  This cover is a departure from the other mattresses in the Alexander series in that it is a smooth surface. The other models have a more tufted / pillow top feel and look.

Alexander Contour Cover

My Alexander Luxury Contour Findings

If you prefer a softer mattress, this is the way to go. The softer you go on the spectrum with mattresses the more susceptible you are to inadequate support. This mattress addresses that issue by providing mini coils that let you sink into the mattress without sinking in too much in any one spot.

Here’s a photo that illustrates sinkage using my 14lb. bowling ball.

Alexander Hybrid Luxury Contour Sink

This mattress is mostly memory foam but will still have a little bit of bounce back due to the 1,300 mini coils in the middle layer of the mattress. The bed recovers quickly so it is still easy to move around in.

The bed is aptly named the Countour because it really contours to your body. The more I sleep on mattresses with mini coils or micro coils, the more I am a believer. One mini coil on its own is really unimpressive but when you spread over a thousand across a mattress you get a really transformative feel.

In terms of heat retention, this is also the coolest sleeping among the Nest mattresses. I attribute this to 3 factors. The cool to the touch phase change cover, the copper phase change foam on the top layer and the mini coils underneath that all the mattress the breathe.

Here’s a video that shows how quickly heat dissipates from the top of the mattress.

Nest mattresses always have an added touch of quality no matter the price point. This mattress also comes with handles stitched into the sides to make it easy to rotate and transport and just make the mattress look great.

Alexander Hybrid Luxury Contour Handles

My Nest Luxury Contour Recommendation

Dedicated side sleepers will fall in love with this mattress. It does a phenomenal job at addressing pressure points in your hips and shoulders. Sleepers that switch between side and stomach sleeping may want to consider the Alexander Hybrid as it is a bit firmer.

The Luxury Contour rounds out the offering of hybrid mattresses from Nest Bedding. It’s a cozy mattress that still keeps you afloat.

Agility Bed Mattress
<h2 class="entry-title"><a href="https://sleepsherpa.com/agility-bed-review-a-mattress-for-mom/" rel="bookmark">Agility Bed Review : A Mattress for Busy Moms</a></h2>

I was given a free Agility Bed for review. The Agility Bed  is a softer mattress that features a five zone latex system on the top layer as well as bio based gel foam. In between these layers are nearly 1,000 micro coils to provide extra support and contouring. What you get is a soft mattress that still gives you good support.

Overview of the Agility Bed Mattress

You can order the Agility Bed direct from their website. After placing your order it should arrive in about a week. When you receive it, it will come in a box like the one below. Even though this mattress has coils, it can still be compressed. In fact, mattresses bigger than this can still be compressed in a box and in my opinion are every bit as good as their store counterparts.

With the Agility mattress you get a 100-night free trial where you can sleep on it for 100 days and if you’re not happy with it before the 100 days is up, you can return it for a full refund. It’s free shipping to you and no return shipping fees either so it’s a clean break.

Agility Bed Box

Below is a video highlighting some of the features of the mattress and my initial impression.

 

Construction of the Agility Bed

Agility Bed Inside

  • Latex top layer is a 3.3# density and ILD of 14.
  • Micro coils
  • Transition Layer of 4# density visco and 12 ILD.
  • Polyurethane core that is 1.8# density and 33 ILD.

Agility Bed Mattress Construction

Pricing is as follows:

Twin $799
Twin XL $799
Full $999
Queen $1,099
King $1,299
Cal King $1,299

My Agility Bed Findings

The Agility Bed is a soft mattress and you sink into it right away. As opposed to a dense foam mattress that takes a while for you to sink in, this mattress will instantly cradle you and spring back. What makes this possible is two things, the top layer of zones latex and the microcoils underneath. Check out the video below to see how each layer reacts.

The microcoils don’t look like they are doing much and individually they really don’t, but in aggreggate, they all work together to give you subtle support. They also add to the breathability of the mattress. Instead of using an extra layer of transition foam, the micro-coils act as a transition layer while the latex on the top layer serves as the comfort layer.

The foam underneath the microcoils is dense and will then allow the coils above to sink as necessary where they get the most pressure so that you don’t get too much pushback from the coils system.

Here’s a video showing motion transfer on the Agility Bed using my bowling balls. This was done at the center of the mattress. Keep in mind that since the top layer is a zoned latex system each part of the mattress will have a different firmness. I dropped the bowling ball at the middle of the mattress where your hips would be. Your midsection is the heaviest part of your body.

Usually a softer mattress means a less breathable mattress. That’s because as you sink into the mattress you have more material surrounding you. The Agility Bed addresses this problem first with the latex Layer. As you can see in the picture below there are holes in the latex. This is because the latex mold creates these holes and what you get is a very breathable top layer.

Underneath that are the microcoils which also create more airspace for heat to escape.

Agility Bed Latex

Here’s a video showing how well the Agility Bed can dissipate heat from the cover.

My Agility Bed Recommendation

The Agility Bed is an excellent choice for anyone, not just moms, looking for a soft mattress that is breathable and supportive. Given the construction of the mattress, it is fairly priced as well. This is one of the softest mattresses I have reviewed and it is hard to get soft, “right” but Agility Bed did it with flying colors.

I highly recommend this for side sleepers that crave a soft cozy mattress.

Amore Mattress Review

Amore Beds Review

Recently updated on January 19th, 2019 at 06:09 pm

Editor’s Note: This post contains affiliate links, which means I receive a commission if you make a purchase using these links. For full details visit the disclosures page.

The Amore Mattress is the newest entrant in the customized mattress space. This is a foam / coil hybid mattress that has 3 different firmness levels, soft / medium / firm with an added option to have different firmness levels on each side of the mattress. Since most couples have different firmness preferences, it makes sense to design a mattress that can be customized with different feels. The mattress also comes in at a competitive price at $775 for a queen.

Overview of the Amore Mattress

Here’s a video of me on the Amore Mattress giving an overview of how it all works. The mattress I received has the copper-infused fabric cover which aids in cooling. After placing your order the mattress should arrive in about a week and comes roll packed in a box.

Construction of the Amore Bed

Below are the specifications as listed on the Amore website:

  • Contains super cooling elements made with CertiPUR-US foams free of flame retardants, heavy metals, formaldehyde, and phthalates. No toxic flame retardants used in this mattress.
  • Offers a dual firmness split design option allowing for two people to choose different comfort levels.
  • Introduces our specialized natural Talalay thermo-transferring graphite viscoelastic memory foam to keep you cool.   Gel is 10-year-old technology.  Get with the times and get today’s 2017 best hybrid with Graphite!
  • Does NOT retain heat like typical all-foam universal mattresses.  Our 4″ pocketed coils cost 4x the price of the 4″ of foam that competitors use.  Our engineers (and our backs) agree it’s worth it.
  • Incorporates the best of both worlds between spring and foam mattresses without the negatives.
  • Maintains lasting support for any sleep position with 4″ ultra-breathable precision pocketed-coils.
  • Revolutionizes a unique therapeutic copper ion fabric option offering priceless benefits.
  • Helps alleviate back pain by targeting pressure points with our industry leading hybrid technology of premium materials.  More is definitely better with the 11″ AmoreBed.
  • The intelligent choice for informed mattress shoppers tired of salesman and retail markups.
  • Natural GOTS certified wool fire barrier

How Much Does the Amore Mattress Cost?

Twin Mattress – $550.00 regular; $400.00 w/ $150 sale
Twin XL Mattress – $650.00 regular; $500.00 w/ $150 sale
Full Mattress – $825.00 regular; $675.00 w/ $150 sale
Queen Mattress – $925.00 regular; $775.00 w/ sale
King Mattress – $1,100.00 regular; $950.00 w/ sale
Cal. King Mattress – $1,100.00 regular; $950.00 w/ sale

My Amore Mattress Findings

I received a split queen where one side is firm and the other is medium. They also have a soft option which would obviously be softer and sink more than the medium.

Below is a picture illustrating sinkage on the mattress. On the right is the medium side and the left is the firm side. There is a noticeable difference between the two. While they vary in firmness, the firmest option still provides good pressure relief.

Amore Mattress Sinkage

I also took apart the mattress to show you the inside. Below is a picture of the inside of the Amore mattress. The mattress has 4 distinct layers. The top layer being the graphite infused memory foam then foam underneath that two layers of memory foam and finally the pocket coil system which is encased in a border of rigid foam.

Amore Mattress Review

Here’s a picture of the pocket coil system. Amore mattresses have 4 inch pocket coils. Overall this feels more like a foam mattress than a spring mattress but the coils add a nice touch in that the add a little more contouring than a simple base foam layer can offer.

Pocket Coils

Below is a video that illustrates how the layers react.

 

 

Below is a video of me bouncing my bowling ball on the soft side of the mattress to illustrate motion transfer.

Compare that to the firm side of the mattress below. Both handle motion well because most of it is absorbed by the foam layers immediately below the top graphite foam layer.

Here’s a video illustrating heat retention on the Amore Mattress. The copper infused ticking will help a little with dissipating heat and so will the graphite

My Amore Mattress Recommendation

I really like what Amore has done with their mattress. The split firmness levels I had in my queen had a subtle transition for each side so you don’t feel like there is a division between you and your partner. This mattress has a little bit of everything, copper, graphite-infused foam and pocket coils. That’s a lot of different materials but everything comes together well. I recommend this mattress for people that are looking for an affordable hybrid mattress that cradles well and has some sinkage but is easy to move around in and still supportive.
