IDLE Sleep Gel Plush

Construction and Materials

The Idle Gel Plush is a 14″ all foam mattress made up of the following layers:

  • 1″ Top Comfort Layer – This layer is 1″ of custom blended foam with gel infusion that is sewn into a cover and designed to react faster than memory foam and provide better support, pressure relief and cooler sleep.
  • Natural Fire Resistant Barrier – Right below the top comfort layer of cooling buoyancy foam there is a 100% natural cotton barrier that doesn’t contain any harmful and artificial chemicals and materials and that wraps around all other layers.
  • 3″ Response Layer – This layer is 3″ of Idle Gel-Infused Buoyancy Foam that is the company’s custom blend foam designed to be more responsive than memory foam which makes changing positions and getting in and out of bed during the night much easier. It also doesn’t retain heat, provides a better support than traditional memory foam and better pressure relief.
  • 3″ Support Layer – This layer is 3″ of the special memory foam designed to provide the right amount of support to those areas of your body where it is needed most. It also doesn’t retain heat and has a quick response to pressure.
  • 8″ Base Layer – This layer is 8″ of durable high-density foam that provides deep compression support and minimizes motion transfer. It also serves as the foundation for the layers above and provides greater durability and stability to the mattress.
  • Fireproof Cloth – Here again we have a 100% natural fireproof cotton barrier.

The cover of the IDLE Gel Plush mattress is a special IceFabric cover that is sewn into the quilted surface and and that wraps the Idle buoyancy foam. It is extremely soft, cool and pleasant to the touch and adds to the overall comfort and luxuriousness of this mattress.

Firmness and Support

This mattress comes in only one firmness option and we rate it at a 5,5 out of 10 (10 being the firmest).

It feels like a medium-firm mattress, although it is more on a softer side. Its quilted top comfort layer and the gel-infused foam layer below provide a soft feel and cradle your body to relieve pressure points while the slightly firmer support and base layers provide firmer support below.

In terms of support, the Idle Gel Plush mattress does a really good job of providing excellent support in all sleeping positions.

Comfort

The IDLE Gel Plush mattress is quite comfortable with the soft quilted top and foam layer cradling your body and relieving pressure points and the support layer of memory foam and base layer below providing good support necessary for all sleeping positions.

The soft quilted top layer will provide you with the feeling of sleeping on clouds and eliminate any pain and discomfort while the special Idle buoyant foams will also provide a nice degree of bounce and responsiveness which facilitates changing positions during the night and getting in and out of bed and makes this mattress good for sex.

Sleeping Hot

Various gel-infused cooling buoyancy foams used in the construction of this mattress make it sleep incredibly cool.

They not only provide extraordinary pressure relief, but also work with the special cover to keep the mattress cool and prevent the build up of heat and that sticky, sweaty feeling typical for many all foam mattresses.

Sinkage and Motion Transfer

The IDLE Gel Plush mattress does a good job with sinkage. Although Andrew compressed the top foam layers quite a bit, he couldn’t feel the firm base layer below.

The edge support with this mattress is also good when compared to other mattresses.

As for motion transfer, it was minimal with this mattress, although there is a nice degree of bounce and responsiveness coming from its responsive and buoyant foams.

Smell / Off-Gassing

This mattress gets high marks for not having too much of a noticeable smell upon opening the box.

The company uses only Natural, CentiPUR-US certified foams which significantly minimizes the degree of off-gassing that all foam mattresses usually have.

Haven Premier

Construction and Materials

The Haven Premier mattress is a 12″ all foam mattress made up of 3 layers of various types of foam:

  • Fireproof Cloth – The layers of this mattress are wrapped in all natural organic cotton cloth that is fireproof and that goes all around the mattress. The fabric is eco-friendly, healthy and allows excellent airflow through the mattress.
  • 3″ Top Comfort Layer – This layer is 3″ of Haven’s custom blended cooling buoyancy foam. The foam is gel-infused, which means that it will keep you cool all night long, while it also has faster response than memory foam and offers better support for a perfect pressure relief.
  • 2″ Supportive Transition Layer – This layer is 2″ of perforated memory foam which allows the mattress to breathe and provides extra responsiveness and support necessary for proper spinal alignment and a comfortable sleep.
  • 7″ Base Layer –  This layer is 7″ of high-density supportive base foam which acts as a solid and durable foundation for the layers above and boosts the overall support of this mattress.

The Haven Premier mattress features a high quality quilted cover designed to work with the body’s natural thermal capabilities. This means that the cover will keep you warm when you are cold and cool when you feel hot.

Besides this, the cover of this mattress is also washable and you can unzip it, take it off and wash it whenever it is necessary.

Firmness and Support

The Haven Premier mattress is a universal comfort model, just like the IDLE Sleep Gel Plush, which means that it is designed to appeal to a wide range of sleepers with different sleep preferences.

We personally felt it to be around a 6.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale (10 being the firmest), so it is more of a medium-firm mattress.

In terms of support, this mattress provides excellent support needed for all sleeping styles and all types of sleepers.

It’s top comfort layer allowed us to sink into the mattress to a certain degree for a perfect pressure relief while the slightly firmer transition layer below combined with the responsiveness of the top comfort layer slowly transitioned our bodies into a firm base layer and prevented us from sinking too much into the mattress and feeling enveloped by foam.

Comfort

The Haven Premier mattress is, just like the IDLE Sleep Gel Plush, quite comfortable with its 12″ thickness and various high-quality foam layers which mold and hug your body to provide a comfortable sleeping surface while also having enough firmness to provide you with the right amount of support and keep your spine properly aligned.

The top comfort gel-infused foam layer provides a nice amount of bounce and responsiveness needed to switch positions during the night without causing too much motion transfer and makes this mattress perfect for sex.

Sleeping Hot

This mattress sleeps incredibly cool due to the gel-infused top comfort layer that prevents the build up of excessive body heat and helps keep you cool and comfortable all night long.

Besides this, the mattress features a layer of perforated foam which works with the soft and breathable cover to allow greater airflow through the mattress and aids in cooling.

Sinkage and Motion Transfer

The Haven Premier mattress did a good job with minimizing the amount of sinkage and motion transfer too, especially when compared to most other all foam mattresses we have reviewed.

It is true that Andrew compressed the top comfort layer to a certain degree, but the responsiveness of this layer combined with the slightly firmer transition layer and firm base layer below prevented him from sinking to much into the mattress and feeling trapped in foam.

Edge support is also good with this mattress and Andrew didn’t compress the edges too much at all when sitting or lying near them.

As for motion transfer, there wasn’t too much of it with this mattress. The various foams used in its construction absorbed our movements and reduced excessive motion transfer.

Smell / Off-Gassing

The Haven Premier mattress also gets excellent marks for not having too much of a noticeable smell upon opening the box.

Customer Service:

Price

The Haven Premier is extremely reasonably priced, coming in at only $695 for a Queen, which is a great price given the materials used in the construction of this mattress and its design.
