Below is a guest post from my daughter Kristen.

Recently we had the opportunity to try out the brand new While this isn’t the typical type of blog you’ll find on here, the reason we wanted to do a review boiled down to the fact that the mattress is designed for active people – it’s not just another mattress in a box.

We’ve taken some time before releasing this review as we really wanted to have a few weeks of sleep on this mattress before providing you with our honest account. And let me be clear, we were not paid for this review. We were gifted a mattress but received no extra pay to tell you simply what the company wants you to hear. This is our honest opinion!

The verdict is that WE LOVE IT!

We had really low expectations from a mattress that comes out of a box. We’ve been so ingrained with the idea that you need to go to a brick and mortar store to buy an expensive mattress with memory foam. I mean after all, the mattress industry is 109 years old. But after trying this mattress, I’m not sure we would ever go back. Mattress inside box

There are a number of reasons we love it. To begin with, it is extremely comfortable. We also love that you can’t really feel the movements of your partner.

It’s so subtle when my husband moves around that it doesn’t disturb me. Normally I wake up several times throughout the night when he is unsettled, but I have had some of the most consistent sleeps in years on this bed.  He’s even been able to sneak out in the morning without waking me which never used to happen.

One of the other things we love is that the mattress doesn’t trap heat– it is super breathable. We did some digging into why this mattress seems to be better than most in this area and it boils down to a few things.

First of all – they use a graphite foam which regulates thermal energy. Secondly, there are gel microbeads that ensure the heat doesn’t get trapped. And finally, the synthetic latex provides a cooler surface than memory foam.

A few other things that may be helpful if you are considering this mattress:

  • You have 120 nights to test the bed with a risk-free trial.
  • The cover is machine-washable so it’s WAY easier to clean than most mattresses.
  • It’s Canadian made!
  • It’s non-allergenic.
  • It comes in a box! You can order it directly to your home and shipping is free for 99% of Canada. Only a few super remote locations have to pay a shipping fee.

Honestly, we really do love this mattress and will likely order one soon for our guest bedroom. Feel free to comment below with any questions and we’ll give you honest feedback! Here’s the link again in case you want to learn more:

  1. Thanks for this review. We are currently in the market for a new mattress and find it very challenging to “sort” through the marketing versus science based facts for a good firm mattress for active outdoor bodies which need some therapeutic support ; and cooling temp for the midlife female nightsweats. My questions:
    . 1. How is the temperature ? I worry about too hot.
    2. Any update now that you’ve slept on it longer…? Support good?
    3. What base do u have it on?
    Many thanks….nervous to try a bed in a box for our primary bed( I do love my memory foam gel thin mattress recently purchased for campervan ????)

    1. @Carol I’m going to get my daughter to respond. I do know as recently as last week that she said she loved it. Stay tuned. It might take a day or two to get back to you.

  2. From my daughter in answer to Carol’s question:
    1. Temperature is good – we have used it both in winter and in summer now and it’s great across the seasons
    2. We love the support – even while I’ve been pregnant – it’s been excellent. It’s not too soft and not too hard – we find it’s the right balance.
    3. We have it on a platform bed – just on the wooden slats. It is not on top of a box spring and it’s been awesome.

    Overall we actually love this mattress and would definitely buy it again in future. It’s in excellent shape 6 months in – no dents or places sinking in after repeated use. Honestly – it’s really really good.

  3. I like this mattress, it’s pretty much what I expected for a bed in a box. It’s not as good as talalay latex in that the responsiveness is a little bit dull which is typical of memory type foams but overall it dissipates heat reasonably well and the quality of the mattress is quite good. Conventionally, a firmer mattress ensures better support for the back.
