Best Cooling Mattress for Hot Sleepers

(Last Updated On: September 13, 2018)

For a mattress to be able to cool a hot sleeper down it must have a couple of elements to be able to do that. It has to be made of a material that will disperse the heat leaving the customer cool while they sleep at night and it must have a good air flow system to allow air to shoot through the mattress to help keep it cool. If it has gel foam this would be a very good benefit because the gel foam is able to keep the customer cool while they sleep. These types of mattresses could be very expensive in relation to regular mattresses. The question is do you want to spend a few thousand dollars for a cooling mattress with the best cooling technology? There are some mattresses with cooling technology but they are not cheap. You should probably expect to pay a fair amount of money for a mattress made with the latest cooling technology but they should last a long time because they are so expensive. These are mattresses that will help to keep sleepers who overheat during the night. It must keep the customer cool and feeling comfortable in the evening. If the mattress does not keep the sweat off the body then the cooling mattress is not serving its purpose.

Benefits and Uses: This is an expensive mattress it is priced at $2800.00 and it is made of 100% foam. The mattress is soft and it is said to be able to disperse the body weight across the bed. It is a 12-inch mattress that works with other materials in the mattress to support and relax you while you sleep. The support layer is the material that will give you the most rejuvenating sleep you will ever have. This is what the company claims the mattress will do for the customer. The cover will unzip and it is cool to the touch which means it will help to keep the temperature of the mattress cool. The company offers a 10-year warranty on the mattress and it is made in the United States.

Feedback: The mattress had 9 views written about and this could be because it is such an expensive mattress. One thing about this mattress is that it does have a 10-year warranty which is standard for the industry. The customer complains that her husband always complains that the new mattress is too firm. Then when he sleeps on it for a couple of days all of a sudden his back is better. The customer says the mattress has a strange “give” the customer slowly sinks down into the mattress. But it is very firm for the wife and the husband. This is not good but the mattress was very large and heavy when it came in the box. The two delivery guys brought it in a van but unfortunately, the mattress box was destroyed. The customer could actually see the mattress through the holes in the box. The delivery guys said this is the way it came off the plane. The rest of their boxes were in top shape. The driver said this always happens with Pilot (the transportation company) so Pilot does not handle the cargo with care at all. The customer suggests that Amazon should not ship with Pilot anymore. This is a very good idea.

The customer said the mattress was extremely heavy weighing in at over 120 lbs. The son’s friends helped the husband get the mattress into the bedroom and on the boxspring. The mattress was ready to go right out of the box. They grabbed the side handles and slammed the mattress on the boxsprings. The wife says the mattress is very firm and her back loves the support the mattress is giving it. The customer also said the mattress is firmer than the old one. They owned the old one for a year and it started softening up but the customer thinks this will not happen with the new one. The customer admits the mattress is expensive (and boy is it expensive) but it is worth the price and the top of the mattress can be removed to be clean. The customer writes the mattress screams “luxury”. After that glowing review is it any surprise the mattress was rated 5-stars?

This customer says they downsized from a king-size mattress to this one. The husband says the mattress is better than the old one but the customer is not convinced. The wife likes the old mattress better because it was softer. The husband says this mattress is better because it is firmer. The wife thinks once she sleeps on it more she will like it better. The plastic was ripped that the mattress came in and the box was not in much better shape. The mattress had a grease spot on it and for the price of the mattress, it shouldn’t have been a grease spot on it. The box and the plastic the mattress came in were ripped. The customer says the company should not be held responsible for the damage to the packaging and the mattress. The client said it was not the fault of the company but it was the fault of the delivery c0mpany. But this may not be necessarily true because the bad condition of the packaging material and the new mattress could have been fault other company. This is plain old sloppy handling for the mattress had a grease spot on it, the packaging should not have been damaged. The plastic that the mattress was in should not have had any holes in it. The customer rated the product 4-stars

The customer heartily complains that the mattress is as hard as a rock. It was too firm for the customer and they slept on t for a week and could not find a comfortable position to sleep on the bed. The customer says they bought some extra bedding that cost $200.00 dollars and then it felt like the customer was sleeping on a slab of cement. The customer said the floor was softer than this mattress. The customer says the mattress is heavy and you need people to help you carry the bed to where it will make its permanent home. The customer says the mattress is very heavy and it does not navigate corners well at all. The customer said they knew that the mattress was firm because it felt hard to the touch. The mattress did not bend well when it was being carried to the bedroom. The customer rated the product 2-stars but this seems like this is not a true review. It sounds like the customer may have embellished some of the negative details of the mattress. What is a puzzle is why did the customer spent all the money for the extra bedding if they disliked the mattress so much why did they keep it? Why didn’t they return it?
