Bear Mattress is an online bed-in-a-box company founded by athletes who recognize that sleep is integral to recovery and athletic performance. Their flagship all-foam mattress focuses on cooling technology to offer athletes restful nights’ rest.
The Bear Original is a 10″ memory foam mattress constructed with Greenguard Gold- and Certi-PUR US certified foam materials, featuring graphite gel infusion for pressure relief and keeping sleepers cool. Furthermore, Celliant cover enhances blood flow to muscles for faster muscle recovery.
This mattress scores highly for durability, meaning that it will likely outlive other beds made from similar materials. Additionally, its solid support helps prevent back sleepers’ spines from sinking inward while its lack of cushioning means it may not provide adequate support in side or stomach sleeping positions.
In terms of responsiveness, the Bear earned 9 out of 10. This score indicates how quickly its mattress adapts to any sudden movements throughout the night, an essential consideration for combination sleepers who switch positions frequently during their restless night’s rest. Unfortunately, however, its performance wasn’t quite as stellar in motion isolation tests which consider couples or co-sleepers who might feel each other’s movements through their sheets; coil or latex mattresses might provide better isolation in this regard.
