Mattress In A Box Review: Classic Brands Cool Gel 10-Inch Memory Foam Mattress
The Classic Brands Cool Gel mattress in a box could be the right option for those looking for an extremely affordable, medium-firm, high quality new sleep experience.
This product is the original cool gel product, offering amazing ventilation through its gel memory foam. The gel particles infused in each layer of this memory foam mattress are there to make the sleeping surface comfortable while the high-density foam in the base layer supports your back and prevents you from moving around too much at night.
In addition to the cool gel foam upper layer, this product is built with a supportive airflow gel second layer, and high-density foam base layer to provide support in the places you need it.
The cool gel also helps regulate temperature, ensuring you don’t get too hot while you sleep. The foam is even naturally hypoallergenic and resistant to allergens, mold, bacteria, and dust, so you don’t need to worry about breathing in air pollutants that have stuck to your mattress.
This mattress is a good choice for anyone preferring a medium-firm bed. The mattress can be paired with any bed frame that is the correct dimensions to fit the bed, including adjustable frame beds.
Better yet, the foam composing this bed is CertiPUR-US certified to be safe, clean, and free of dangerous chemicals and heavy medals. This bed can be shipped to you as a mattress in a box, ensuring ease of installation.
Unlike some other companies, Classic Brands provides instructions on their website both in the form of a PDF and a video on exactly how to take this bed out of its box and get it set up. They recommend three full days, or 72 hours, before sleeping on this bed.
What are customers saying about this mattress in a box?
People in the reviews section seem to agree that, though this mattress is pretty firm, and therefore hard to get used to for some, it is extremely comfortable once you are used to it.
Many of this mattress’s users seemed to either enjoy sleeping on a firm mattress before purchasing this one or, conversely, said they enjoyed the firmness and comfort provided by this mattress despite never using a firm mattress before.
In addition to the comfort and support provided by the memory foam in this bed, Amazon reviewers also noticed the cooling technology built into the memory foam, with one user saying “If you’re a hot sleeper, I highly recommend.”
Since this seems to be exactly who Classic Brands seemed to have in mind when they built this mattress, its good to know that there is confirmation from a user that the technology works as it is designed to.
For one user with chronic pain caused by an autoimmune disease, this bed was able to relieve most of the pain they experienced while sleeping in other beds. While it did take a week or two for this user to get used to the mattress, it went from slightly less uncomfortable than the other beds they had tried to wonderful sleep.
She even says her husband overslept the morning after the first night in their new bed because of how comfortable he thought it was. This was certainly not the only reviewer that talked about pain being alleviated or at least minimized after sleeping on this bed.
Lots of people described back or hip pain being much more tolerable, or gone altogether, after starting to use this bed.
Though this mattress had plenty of good reviews, it also had a few that were less glorious than the others.
Several users found the mattress to be way too stiff or discovered that the foam was breaking down and/or sagging after a year or so of use.
The user who was experiencing foam breaking down simply added a 2-inch memory foam topper that seemed to fix the issue. As for people experiencing discomfort, it seems the firmness of this bed is not for everyone.
If you’re looking for something that is plush and soft, this would not be a good option.
Classic Brands Cool Gel Mattress Top FAQs
Popular questions included how firm the mattress is. Several users replied with slightly varying answers, but the general consensus, again, is that this mattress is relatively firm.
However, one of the people who replied to this question said that it is both. According to their experience, “It’s soft without your body sinking in. Gives you body support but is soft.” At least for this person, it seemed to be a good balance between supportive and comfortable.
Another question was on weight limits for this mattress. According to product description, the weight limit is 1000 pounds, though it is extremely unlikely anyone has had the opportunity to really test that.
More relevantly, a user of this mattress bought the bed for their son, who is 6’5” and over 300 pounds. The bed has held up perfectly for him.
