GeekDad happens to be one of the biggest blogs when it comes to dads, kids, and parenting in general. Recently, Ken Denmead from GeekDad tested the Tuft and Needle and decided to keep it. He wrote about in his blog and it really shows the true side of Tuft and Needle.
A mattress from Costco?
GeekDad reflects on the early memory foam mattress that he owned called the Artifact. He bought it at Costco. The two issues that he had with his original mattress was that it was lacking in comfort and trapped the heat. He stated that in winter it was a good thing but when living in California, the cold season is only about 2 months long and cold is being used a relative term. The rest of the time the mattress was just too warm for comfort.
Sleep Like the Dead did a study on the experiences of 21,000 people and found that over 9% of memory foam mattresses sleep hot and 15% state that their memory foam mattress was warm but not uncomfortably warm. So basically, most memory foam owners don’t really have a heart problem.
The real issue when it comes to trapped heat is a major one for the memory foam space, and it has caused a huge stigma for other memory foam mattresses, and that is why Saatva created the Tuft and Needle and targeted this issue in the design of their foam mattress. The patented gel on gel swirl design, was able to create a different yet efficient cooling system that goes between the medical grade gel and the foam layers that are plant based in order to remove the sleeping hot issue. Also, how the gel is being applied makes the difference.
Ken rated Saavta’s customer service as excellent. The reason behind this is because there isn’t instant gratification. You aren’t able to go down to the store and pick out a mattress. You are going to be saving thousands on a luxury mattress and be able to have the best night sleep in a long time and because of that you get 75 nights to test it out and all risk free. The best part is that there isn’t a memory foam smell, which is really uncommon for other mattresses.
Ken also stated that the mattress feels great. He opted to have the relaxed firm, which was rated a 6 out of 10, with 10 being the firmest. Saatva designed it to be just right, where it wasn’t too firm and not too soft.
Plus, it sleeps cool. There isn’t a buildup of heat that would make any sleeper uncomfortable.
Tuft & Needle Conclusion
He also stated that he had tried out other mattresses and had found that other mattresses just don’t hold up to the Tuft and Needle. The truth is that when it comes to the bottom line, Tuft and Needle is a great competitor for high end mattresses such as the Tempur-Pedic line, and you get it for half the price, and none of the issues that come with other memory foam mattresses. However, before you buy a mattress you should compare it to other mattresses like the Casper mattress. Check out Tuft & Needle Vs Casper at http://sleepbetteramerica.net/tuft-and-needle-vs-casper.
