Differences Between The Pod and The Pod Pro

Let’s go over the differences between the two mattresses so you know what more you get when you buy a Pod Pro.

Base Mattress – The Pod Pro is 12″ deep foam mattress which is an inch more than the Pod. It has an enhanced foam topper. 

New ambient sensors measure room temperature, humidity, and local weather to set your bed to the ideal sleep or waking temperature. 

Report includes the analysis of Respiratory Rate, Resting Heart Rate, and Heart Rate Variability, all key indicators of your physical wellness.

Gentle vibration at chest level to wake up each individual without any sound, while gradually cooling or warming the bed minutes before the set wake-up time.
The Pod Pro works by connecting to “The Hub,” a small tower that houses hydro-engines and uses water to regulate temperature.

The company also updated the Gentle Rise wake up feature, now including a gentle vibration at chest level to wake up each morning without any sound. This feature also gradually cools or warms the bed minutes before the set wake-up time, and it can be set to go off for the entire mattress, or for individual left/right zones.

New Heart Rate Variability metric that lets users track the impact of sleep on their heart health. With this metric, you can track and understand why you might feel more fatigued throughout the day. The Pod Pro also tracks Resting Heart Rate, Respiratory Rate, Sleep Stages, and Sleep Time.

Price for a queen size Pod Pro is $2895 – we highly recommend a waterproof mattress protector to prolong and protect the life of this mattress.

Buy a Pod Pro

Both The Pod and The Pod Pro Include

Cool and heat each side of the bed directly from the Eight Sleep app. Set your temperature preference and schedule on and off times.

Dynamic heating and cooling between 55 and 110 degrees Fahrenheit on each side of the bed.

Split sides of the bed so each person can make it to their preference.

Temperature is controlled directly with the connected Eight Sleep app for iOS and Android. The app breaks down your sleep habits with stats like average time asleep, time it takes you to fall asleep, the time at night you tend to get into bed, and more. These metrics all feed into a “sleep coaching” feature that attempts to give you pointers on how to optimize your nighttime routine.

To us, the heart rate monitoring along with the temperature regulation are the most exciting of the new features.
Other than the extra inch of height, the two smart beds look the same with a black sides and top.

Idle Sleep Review of the Idle Latex Hybrid Mattress

By | Mattress | No Comments

Idle Sleep logoIf you like buying a mattress online but don’t want an all foam mattress, Idle is the brand for you. You get the innerspring and a full 14″ like a showroom mattress. However, you get more than if you bought in a store, because you can try it out at home for up to 18 months. If during that time you choose to return the mattress, you’d get a full refund. Although not paid for this review, we may receive a commission when you shop through our links.

 

 

  • Idle Sleep has the longest sleep trial of any mattress we’ve tested – an ultra-long 18-months so you have plenty of time to really test it out at home
  • Choose the firmness level you want on each side of the bed – to medium or firm
  • Idle Mattress is flippable – extending the life of your mattress – a feature that’s harder and harder to find
  • Everlasting warranty means you’re covered against any defects – the company really stands behind the quality
  • 14 inches deep, gives it a luxury look

Idle sent us a beautiful dunlop latex hybrid mattress for review and we got to test it for several weeks. If you’re considering buying the Idle latex hybrid bed, we hope this will help you make the best choice for you.

Idle Latex Hybrid Mattress Review

We were provided the Idle Sleep Latex Hybrid model in queen size along with the two pillows you get free with purchase. The pillows are standard size shredded memory foam that has a zipper so you can remove the cover for easy cleaning.

Here’s our video review:

Construction of the Idle Latex Hybrid Mattress

As far as composition, the main difference is that the Idle Hybrid has foam and the organic version has dunlop latex. The natural version also has organic cotton and tufting to avoid glues. 

Most mattresses you buy online can be rotated, but they can’t be flipped. Why would you want to flip your bed? To help prolong the life of your mattress and fight sagging. Idle is built so it can be flipped. So it’s the same on each side with springs in the middle.

Manufacturers save money by putting less expensive materials on the bottom of the mattress. Idle has the same high quality materials on both sides and throughout the mattress.

This bed stands out in that i has a full 6” of natural dunlop latex.

Want to know the secret to the quality of this mattress – it has quality material. How many natural beds have this much latex? Not many because dunlop is a natural product that is more expensive to produce.

All foams inside an Idle Sleep mattress are certipur-US certified. That means they’re made without ozone depleters, PBDEs, TDCPP or TCEP flame retardants. 

No mercury, lead or other heavy metals are used. There is no formaldehyde or phthalates. In addition the beds are classified as low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions for indoor air quality (less than 0.5 parts per million).

And instead of glues to hold the layers together, Idle uses tufting. This is why you can’t remove the cover and wash it. You’d literally have to cut out the tufts. Worth it in our opinion.

Each Side can be a Different Firmness

In addition, when you buy a bed online, you get to pick one firmness for the entire mattress. If you sleep with someone who needs a more firm bed but you like a softer feel, you have to compromise. But Idle lets you choose a different firmness for each side so you’ll both be happy.

Comes in either medium or luxury firm. Or you can split down the middle so one side is medium and the other is firm. We opted to have both sides medium but if you sleep with someone who prefers a firm bed, this is the perfect option.

Super Long Sleep Trial – a Year and a Half

Idle is one of the few beds that have longer than a year sleep trial. You can sleep on your Idle for up to 18 months and if you’re not happy with it, return it for a full refund. Plus you have an amazing lifetime warranty.

Idle Mattress Layers

One of the most important things to look for when purchasing a new mattress is what it’s made from. Why is it important? Because the different materials define how comfortable and long-lasting it is.

The Idle 14″ Latex Hybrid Mattress is comprised of mostly latex and coils. Let’s get into more detail, including how this mattress doesn’t have glue to hold the layers together.

Cover: 100% Organic Cotton and Natural Wool

The eco-friendly cover is made from all-natural, organic, soft cotton and wool. The fabric is embedded with the word, “organic”. It’s sewn together with double button tufting, known as the Yarn Rosettes. 

These rosettes hold the mattress layers together and are a natural alternative to glue. There is often formaldehyde in glues between foam layers of mattresses. Unfortunately, that has health implications as breathing formaldehyde off gassing has been linked to asthma, allergies, and lung, nose, and throat cancers. 

Durable natural wool is quilted into the mattress cover to further enhance the comfort and velvety feel. Furthermore, the wool also acts as a natural fire barrier. There is a 1” wool layer sewn into each side of the cover. 

Cushioning: 6” of 100% Pure Dunlop Latex

The thickest layer, besides the coils, is the 3” of Dunlop latex on each side of the coils, for a total of 6”. This is the heavier, most durable latex available.

Dunlop latex doesn’t sink in but unlike most people think, it’s not really “bouncy.” Because dunlop is less processed than Talalay, it’s less expensive.

This is important and where the quality is. It’s much cheaper to use foam than it is to use dunlop latex. 

Natural latex is a natural product that comes from a tree. It’s heavier and more expensive to ship. This is where most mattress manufacturers cut corners.

This latex is certified by the Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS). GLOS certified products have more than 95% raw material which is not only pure but also certified. Furthermore, GLOS limits all types of harmful agents for a safe, healthy and top-quality product.

Moreover, the latex is hypoallergenic and anti-microbial which further elaborates on the measures of safety the company has taken while producing this particular mattress.

Support: Quantum 6” Pocketed Coils

There isn’t a lot of detail about this layer, but it’s thin and goes before and after the coil layer. It provides tension management. The pocketed coils help minimize motion transfer and provides additional support to the bed. There are 1,000 coils in a queen size vs the typical 300 springs.

The edge to edge support means you’re supported even if you sit, sleep or live on the edge.

Idle Mattress Firmness 

Now, that we have covered all the composition of the mattress, the next most important thing is the firmness. This is subjective, however, you have just two choices: medium or luxury firm. The medium falls around a 6 or 7/10 while the Luxury firm is at a 9 to 9.5/10 level.

White Glove Delivery Service

Although it may slow down the delivery, Idle Sleep has a White Glove Delivery & Removal service. That means someone will come to your home, unbox and set up your bed and remove your old mattress for you. 

This service is an additional $149.00 but considering that a queen size is very heavy, so it might be worth it to save your back. Or, make sure you get help unboxing it. 

Sleep Temperature

The Idle mattress says this mattress sleeps cool. Research shows that around 12% of mattress owners report that their hybrid mattress retains heat. So not a huge number. 

Most mattress reviews are not entirely honest about this but we found that the Idle latex bed slept warmer than other beds we tested. Other reviewers claim it sleeps cool so we gave it a long time to confirm that it indeed sleeps warm. 

So if heat is an issue for you, we recommend the IDLE Hybrid. It’s still made with high quality. low chemical construction but uses foam instead of latex. 

Idle Mattress Sizes and Prices

The Idle Latex Hybrid Mattress is available in the following sizes: Single (or usually called a Twin), Twin-XL, Full, Queen, King, and California King.

Size

Dimensions

Single 39” x 75” x14”

Pros and Cons of Idle Natural Latex Hybrid Mattress

No mattress is perfect for everyone. The following are some of the benefits you will get if you buy an Idle mattress and some of the drawbacks too.

Pros 

  • Eco-friendly – made from organic cotton and all-natural materials such as dunlop latex. Tufted so there aren’t any glues to hold layers together.
  • Super long lifetime warranty and 18 month sleep trial.
  • One side can be medium and the other firm to please two different preferences.
  • Can be flipped to prolong life even further, this mattress should last 1 or 2 decades. 
  • Excellent edge support.

Cons

  • Because of its weight it is shipped via UPS Freight because of its weight.
  • Sleeps warm.
  • No soft/plush option available (you never want a firm on one side and a soft on the other or you’ll feel the ridge as one side sinks in far more than the other).

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q: Does Idle Latex Hybrid Mattress come in a split king?

Yes, the mattress does come in split king size, which is two twin XLs that together make the size of a standard king.  

Q: What bases can you put the mattress on?

You can put it on the floor, wood base or any sleeping surface. Idle does carry a simple foundation and an adjustable base. The adjustable base features an independent foot and head incline, dual USB charging stations on both sides of bed bases, wireless remote and programmable memory option.

You can buy the Adjustable Base from here.

Q: How much does the IDLE mattress weigh?

130 lbs for a queen and more for the natural version (we didn’t get a response from them yet on the exact weight.

 Conclusion

If you’re looking for a thicker hybrid mattress and you like the feel of latex (as opposed to sinking in with memory foam), this is a quality pick. Given it has a full 6” of natural dunlop latex, it is a durable product made with quality components. Add the way it was made to be flippable so that you can extend the life of your mattress, this is a great value. This is reinforced by a generous sleep trial and warranty – some of the longest we’ve ever seen. 

What Mattress Should I Buy with My Stimulus Check?

By | Mattress | No Comments

Recently the government provided up to $1,200 per person and $500 per child as a stimulus check to people who meet certain income thresholds. Many have already gotten their stimulus check or it’s on its way now. How should you spend it? If you’re thinking in investing in your sleep, keep reading.

A lot of people are experiencing stress and anxiety as a result of changes brought on by the coronavirus. For many of us, this pressure adds up to a lot of losing sleep. And you might also realize that you’re way overdue for a new mattress. The side effect of cumulative sleep loss can be so hard on your body. It can weaken your immune system, cause weight gain and more.

According to the Institute of Stress (yes, there is such a thing):

Depression, weight gain and high blood pressure are just a few of the health issues that can be related to insufficient sleep and the connection between poor sleep and stress can be a cyclical one.

Too much stress can cause you to have a bad sleep, leading to mental and physical health issues which can, in turn, cause stress in daily life, leading to poor sleep at night.

In this simple guide, we’ll recommend a few of our favorite mattresses and why we recommend them. Note that we may earn a commission when you shop through our links.

Best Budget Mattress – Sweetnight Mattress

If you’re looking for a great price on a memory foam mattress, look at Sweetnight. They’re better constructed than some of the other budget brands which means it’ll last longer.

Best Soft Mattress – Puffy Mattress

The Puffy bed is the most gushy, soft, comfortable mattress for anyone who loves memory foam. It’s got the classic memory foam feel to it which mean you’ll sink into your bed and be warm and cozy. We find it to be above average quality for a bed you buy online. Spring for the Lux or Royale if you can, they’re a little more but they’re the softest and most high quality.

The original Puffy is 10 inches thick. The Puffy Lux is 12 inches. The cover is full of puffy white clouds which is how you’ll feel in this more plush feel bed.

Best Thicker Hybrid Mattress – Idle Sleep

First you can’t beat their save 30% and get 2 FREE pillows offer. That’s what really drew me in. But after sleeping on an Idle, I can see why they’re so popular. It cradled my body all over for the most deep sleep. It’s sooo comfortable. Plus it’s a full 14 inches thick which is thicker than any other mattress on this list. It has a luxury look and feels higher end.

They also have a full 18 months trial period!! That means you have a year and a half to test it out and you can get a refund if it doesn’t work out for you. The warranty is amazing (lifetime) too.

Take a look how it looks coming out of the box. Comes in medium, firm or luxury firm and you can have one side of the bed a different firmness than the other, just in case you and your partner differ on whether to get a medium or a firm bed.

Best Overall Mattress – Purple Hybrid Premier

I don’t know how to describe this mattress other than it’s the most comfortable thing I’ve ever slept on in my entire life. It’s what I sleep on since they came out with the Premier model in early 2018. It’s pricer than their original but it’s worth it!

Sleeping on this bed is like you’re weightless. It has over 30 patents on it and it’s unlike any other mattress we’ve reviewed or slept on. The top layer is a sort of flexible material that is actually purple in color (well, lavender). It just holds your body. It doesn’t sink in too far and get hot. It’s actually temperature neutral because the polymer grid has airflow and it won’t retain heat, like foam will.

They use the grid on seat cushions, including for wheelchairs. It doesn’t break down easily or fast so you’re not going to get dips or sags on the bed where you sleep. Ok, eventually almost all mattresses would but you should be good for the 10 year warranty and beyond.

So you just sleep so much better. I’d call this a medium as far as firmness. Here’s our Purple Hybrid review if you want to learn more.

Best Minimalist Mattress – airweave

airweave is inspired by Japanese futons. They come FOLDED (not rolled) in a box. They’re essentially like a mat that is in 3 pieces that you spread onto your bed frame. Lighter and more portable, this mattress is ideal for anyone who moves frequently or likes a minimalist look/style. Read our full airweave mattress review.

Best All Around Memory Foam Mattress – Nolah

To us Nolah is the unsung hero of the mattress world. They’re a small company you may not have heard of but everyone I’ve talked to who has slept on one is surprised by just how much they love it.

One difference between Nolah and other foam mattresses, is that Nolah is made entirely without memory foam. That means it sleeps cooler. You’re not going to get super hot and sweaty at night. When that happens you wake up to throw off the covers. Even if you don’t realize you woke up, your sleep quality is affected. Nolah is more durable and provide amazing pressure relief on your hips and shoulders. The excellent pressure relief is perfect for side- and back sleepers needing relief on hips and shoulders.

The firmness is right in the middle at medium – a solid 5/10 with 10 being like sleeping on cement.

We hope you enjoyed our quick preview of the top mattresses you can buy online. Be sure not to touch your face after handling the box and wash your hands after unpacking your new mattress.

Nolah Mattress Deemed Essential Business During Lockdowns

By | Mattress | No Comments

You don’t usually think of an online mattress retailer as an essential business. Since they don’t have physical locations that can be shut down or that people may not feel comfortable visiting a mattress store during the coronavirus.

Well, the issue is more on the production side. Today Nolah announced that, “today, we are happy to announce that all our manufacturing partners and warehouses have been deemed essential businesses that are not at risk of being shut down during lockdowns!

That means they can continue to ship and supply as usual and without disruptions. Considering many mattress companies are made in China or partly made in China or another country, it may be slower to get mattresses made right now.

Made in the USA

But Nolah is 100% made in the USA. In Elkhart, Indiana to be exact. Here’s a screenshot of a conversation I had with them:

It has an impressive lifetime warranty too. And an organic cotton cover. Each has a 120 night trial, which is a little above standard for the industry.

Kids: 10% of body weight plus 1-2lbs.

Adults: 10% of body weight.

What to Look for in a Weighted Blanket

These are the things we look at when looking at which weighted blanket to buy.

Cover
Consider the cover – what’s is the fabric? The Bear is a soft microfiber material.

Is it two pieces or one? One piece (no separate duvet type cover).

Is it washable? Yes, but only by hand or dry clean.

Sizes

Does the weighted blanket come in more than one size? Bear offers this more as a one-size throw option.

Weight and Beads

Does the weighed blanket come in more than one weight? The weight that you should choose depends on your height and weight. Bear’s blanket is available in one weight that is generally good for anyone (except children over the age of 3).

Color Options

It’s both stylish and modern and comes in three colors. Weighted blankets like this are a home decor item and are as much for the couch as for bed. So ask yourself if this blanket would look nice in your living room or on your favorite chair.

Sleep Trial and Warranty

Some brands don’t offer a sleep trial on blankets – likely because they’re heavy to ship for the price of the product. Bear has a generous 100 day sleep trial and a 1 year warranty.

Price and Financing

This blanket is on par with the cost of most weighted blankets.

Comfort During a Stressful Time

With the level of stress a lot of us in this country feel right now with coronavirus, kids out of school for weeks if not months and the uncertainty, it’s a good time to curl up under a weighted blanket. They feel like someone is giving you a big hug – and right now a lot of us can’t get closer than 6 feet apart.
