Tuft and Needle Mint Mattress

Tuft and Needle Mint Mattress

Tuft & Needle just launched an all new mattress for 2018 called the Mint. This mattress is thicker and more plush than the original Tuft and Needle. I was able to buy a twin size earlier this year. Below are my findings. No word yet on pricing but I anticipate that this will be more expensive than the original given its construction and extra layer. The Tuft & Needle Mint should be available for purchase direct from their site later this year.

Overview of the Tuft and Needle Mint Mattress

The Tuft and Needle Mint comes in a box very similar to the original Tuft and Needle mattress.

Here’s what it looks like out of the box. To open it just use scissors and carefully cut into the plastic making sure not to cut the fabric or the mattress.

The Mint mattress is distinguished by its dark color and a green mint tag on the corner.

Below is a video overview of the mattress.

Construction of the Tuft and Needle Mint Mattress

The construction details aren’t out on this mattress but in general, it is a 3 layer all foam mattress with a base layer, a transitional contouring layer and a soft top layer that is responsive and breathable. This is a departure from the original Tuft and Needle which is a 2 layer construction.

My Tuft and Needle Mint Findings

The Tuft and Needle Mint is a considerably softer mattress than the original. You sink into this mattress right away and it hugs you a lot more as you can see in the picture below.

Below is another video showing how responsive each layer is inside the mattress.

Here’s a quick video that illustrates how the Tuft and Needle Mint Handles Motion transfer.

Finally, here’s a video taken with my thermal camera that shows heat retention on the mattress.

 

My Tuft and Needle Mint Recommendation

If you want a soft mattress that you can really sink into quickly, this is a great mattress. As of this writing, it’s not available to purchase.  I appreciate how responsive yet soft it is. I would say it’s responsive like the Leesa mattress but softer.  Because it is also a thicker mattress you should get good support as well with minimal motion transfer.

More information about this mattress should be available on the Tuft and Needle website soon.

One thought on “Tuft and Needle Mint Mattress”

  1. How would you compared it to the original Purple mattress? I’m a big guy “6’10” and 265lbs” and I’m trying out the original Tuft and Needle and original Purple simultaneously. The original Tuft and Needle is a solid mattress overall especially for the price but I enjoy the bounce and responsiveness of the hyper elastic polymer on the Purple. My girlfriend is a side sleeper and thought the T&N was a bit too firm for her but so far she enjoys the Purple overall. Only gripe with the Purple is it’s too thin and I feel I “bottom out” due to my size creating pressure points for me throughout the night where I have transition positions. The Mint overall sounds like it would accommodate both my girlfriend and I. Thanks.
