HeroBed Mattress Review
Before we get into the details, know that most of the reviews (pre Sept 2019) are for a different mattress by the same name that has since gone out of business. So if you see other HeroBed reviews, just know that the only one you can buy now is the one that looks like this:
It comes in a duffle bag like this which is much easier to move compared to a box. It has handles on each side and unzips at the top.
HeroBed Mattress Commercial
HeroBed has a really funny commercial where they test their bed against other popular online mattresses in a box brands. They have a line of real pregnant people and dads who just look like they are. But after sleeping on it I get it. It’s really quite supportive and something you need if you don’t want back pain when you’re pregnant.
At first I was totally confused why HeroBed started out their ad with pregnant women. But after sleeping on it, I get it. This mattress is more supportive than average. Really anyone who’s heavier will appreciate that extra support.
Here’s Pablo describing what a HeroBed is made of:
2 inches of HeroFoam
1 inch of Talalay Latex
A base foam layer for support
The bed is a total of 12 inches deep.
So with 3 layers of foam between you and the pocketed coils, you have cushioning but feel the more firm coils.
Mattress Mattress Vending Machine
I got to go to the factory in Utah where the HeroBed is made. While there, I got to meet Pablo, one of the owners. He started a retail mattress store in Utah that’s been very successful and has multiple locations. Then he saw the “bed in the box” trend and wanted to focus on that market.
Best mattress for heavy back sleepers?
Fact: The #1 reason people return a bed is that it’s too firm
Fact: firmness is subjective. For example, I think HeroBed is medium firm while someone else thinks might think it’s firm. Even two people from the same family can disagree! On this mattress, I found it more firm than most bed in a box brands.
Firmness comes down to the level of sinkage. You might love the feel of sinking into your bed, but find it too hot and almost impossible to move around once it warms up.
HeroBed is ideal for people who like or need a more firm bed. It has that lying on the mattress feel. So if you weigh 230 lbs or more AND you sleep on your stomach or back this mattress is great.
Heavier sleepers need additional support. With softer beds, you’ll sink through the softer layers more than someone who is lighter. Memory foam is known for being difficult to move around on and it gets warm with body heat. These issues are more pronounced in heavier sleepers.
This mattress is the best fit for back sleepers or combination (people who move around a lot).

The Cause: Why It’s Called The HeroBed
Now why is this called a HeroBed? It’s because when you buy a hero, you help everyday heros get a bed. For every 2 beds sold they donate 1 bed to charity.
But this is more than a marketing gimmick. It’s a commitment to help our own heroes. Your cheap mattress from China isn’t helping people who need a bed is it??
HeroBed covers come in 3 different colors. The bottom part is either gray, blue or pink. It may be the world’s first pink mattress! I think I’d buy one just for that reason. But each color represents a type of charity who gets the donation.
Pink – goes to support cancer research
Blue – for military and veterans
Gray – children’s care
HeroBed carries Malouf mattress protectors. It’s a good idea to get one. Anytime you buy a new bed, buy a mattress protector too. It’ll extend your bed’s life and it’s a lot easier than washing a mattress. Plus it helps extend the life of your mattress. If liquid, food or other substances get inside the foam it can create bacteria and degrade the foam faster.
