Obviously, the most important aspect of a new mattress is how it feels to sleep in.
Firstly, this mattress has a 1″ layer of super soft and cozy wool on top of the cover. I had never experienced this before and it feels very nice on top. It adds a very nice and soft cushion above the comfort layer. I also like the separation from the comfort layer, it allows for better airflow and cooler sleep.
Next you have 3″ of comfort foam. As you lay down you feel the pressure relief this layer provides and you sink in and conform the perfect amount, but not too much to where you get hot.
Once you conform in you feel the support layer of the air zones. This was also a first for me. They are VERY supportive and provide excellent back support.
The firmness dials initially I didn’t feel like they changed the feel. Until I went to bed later the next day. It seemed to take a bit of time to adjust the air. But now you can noticeably tell on my wife’s side that it is softer. This seems like magic being that nothing is plugged in and there’s no electronics to deal with. I think it is a genius design .
Overall the firmness’s are around 5.5 on the softer setting and 7.5 on the firmer setting. Subtle but noticeable.
We very much like this mattress and will continue sleeping on it between review samples.
