Overview

becky says

With iGel temperature regulating technology, this mattress delivers comfort with support. It's filled with 1600 pocket springs encased in foam, giving you a premium feel and support. Plus, the 3cm layer of premium iGel Beads gel works to relieve pressure and provide heat transfer for a cooler night's sleep. This mattress is completely fresh, made with FreshNow™ technology, which wicks away moisture to keep you dry and comfortable all night long.

This new generation of temperature-regulating gel has been engineered to provide 7 times better heat transfer and works as a fantastic comfort layer within the iGel Advance 1600 Mattress.

Onto the all important support layer, and this mattress really begins to stand out. The 1600 pocket springs are rated as some of the best in the industry, far outperforming open coil traditional mattresses and offering better body contouring than reflex foam. With pocket springs, it really is a case of the more the better and 1600 is pretty far up there, making it a fantastic choice for full body support.

Featuring an impressive 10 year guarantee, that's 3 years longer than the average lifespan of a mattress and 9 years longer than the average guarantee. This effectively gives you "lifetime" guarantee with the product allowing you to enjoy every night to it's fullest without any financial worry relating to it.

Key Performance Indicators KPI question mark

Our Key Performance Indicators are produced using a combination of specification-heavy algoritmic data points and user reviews. For example, a firm pocket spring support layer is more breathable and offers better back support but may prove unsuitable for side sleepers, the reverse is true for a soft-medium tension reflex foam support layer. This is one of 100+ datapoints considered when generating the below ratings.

Suitability

*Assuming average weight, suitability will vary dependant on body type, use the wizard above for a more tailored guide.
  • Back Sleepers
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • The amount of support offered from a mattress will vary depending on the firmness of the tension and the type of support layer used. Based on a person of average build.
  • Side Sleepers
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • If you sleep on your side you typically need a supportive tension that is not too firm, nor too soft. This is because your hips and shoulders need adequate sinkage.
  • Stomach Sleepers
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Stomach sleepers need a reasonable amount of tension in the base support layer to adequately offer body contouring and help prevent aches and pains. Results will vary based on your build.

Performance

  • Breathability
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Mattresses that feature breathable materials help promote airflow and keep you cool making for a more hygienic night's sleep.
  • Turning on mattress
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Certain materials like memory foam can make it difficult to move about on the mattress while you toss and turn. Same too for pillow tops which can create a cloud like sensation which can make manoeuvrability challenging.
  • Stability
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Depending on the type of support layer in place can have an impact on stability, edge to edge support and roll together prevention. Pocket springs of a firmer tension will have better stability than open coil soft tension, for example.

Odour

  • Initial Odour
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Materials in mattresses, particularly memory foam and rolled bed-in-a-box mattresses can have an initial odour, this is typically short term and reduces considerably within 24 hours.
  • Long Standing Odour
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Certain materials inside different mattresses can produce a small odour. Typically this is short term rather than long standing but there are minor exceptions.

What Makes The iGel Advance 1600 Mattress Great?

iGel™ temperature-regulating mattress with Graphene technology

iGel is a fairly new material for use in mattresses, surpassing memory foam in temperature regulation while providing many of the same qualities that make it a great choice for those looking for a premium comfort layer.Gels temperature regulating properties are not the only stand out feature, the popular comfort layer also has great temperature regulation and is naturally hypoallergenic.

Firmness rating: Firm

When we fall asleep, our muscles relax and what that does is it allows our body to decompress. But when we're sleeping on a too soft mattress, the muscles don't have enough support and they're not getting the proper relaxation.The benefits of a firm mattress are that you're going to sleep more soundly,  your back pain is going to be relieved and you're going to have less muscle aches and pains.

Free full 10-year guarantee

The average mattress lifespan is 7 years. The average guarantee is normally 1 year. These 2 numbers often do not get close to each other, however, this mattress comes with an amazing 10 year guarantee that should last the entire lifetime of the mattress protecting you from any problems that would crop up in that period.

Exclusive for Bensons for Beds

This is part of a wider range of mattresses made exclusively for Bensons for Beds meaning that you are not going to be able to find them elsewhere at present. We do have a partnership with Bensons for Beds that may see unique offers from time to time that may be exclusive to us.

1600 pocket springs encased in foam for premium support

Typically, the more springs the better. The average mattress has around 1000 springs and so anything more than that is considered good. The firmness/tension of a mattress is also not dictated by the amount of springs and so you do not need to worry about the firmness being unsuitable when it comes to spring count. Simply the more springs, the better the mattress can contour to your body. 1600 springs is considered good.

3cm of iGel™ Advance beaded gel for pressure relief, helping relieve aches and pains

iGel is a fairly new material for use in mattresses, surpassing memory foam in temperature regulation while providing many of the same qualities that make it a great choice for those looking for a premium comfort layer

iGel™ Graphene technology provides 7 times better heat transfer

iGel is a fairly new material for use in mattresses, surpassing memory foam in temperature regulation while providing many of the same qualities that make it a great choice for those looking for a premium comfort layer.Gels temperature regulating properties are not the only stand out feature, the popular comfort layer also has great temperature regulation and is naturally hypoallergenic.

FreshNow™ moisture wicking for an all-night fresher feel

FreshNow™ is a series of new covers that feature moisture wicking technology that are available in a wide array of different styles and colours.

AdvantEdge™ - provides premium edge support

Surrounding the mattress is what has been aptly dubbed the AdvantEdge™ foam. This works along side the mattresses springs to offer far better edge to edge support over traditional mattresses with standard rod edge support. The main benefit of this product means that roll-together is prevented alongside roll-off providing an even and measured experience no matter which point of the mattress you are sleeping on.

Vivatex™ safe, soft and greener fillings & fabric

Vivatex™ is used in this mattresses fillings and fabrics and provides a safe hypoallergenic sleep that will be both soft and comfortable while reducing the chance of any additional allergies.

Antibacterial and hypoallergenic

This means that the mattress will be unlikely to cause irritation or allergies when in use due to the materials used in the make-up of the mattress.

Contains second life textiles and 100% recycled PET

Recycling is at the forefront of this mattress and the textiles employed in the comfort layer and cover of the product, as such the materials used include those that have already had a previously life as another product. Common examples include water bottles and clothing that are repurposed and reworked to become something new that is both soft and durable.

Overall greener, safer, chemical free formula

Attention to detail has been at the forefront of many light facelifts within the mattress industry to date, and one of these comes in the form of new, green initiatives whereby the manufacturer has been able to create the same sleep experience in a safer and more chemical free manner, giving the consumer a greener mattress as a result.

Easy care non-turn mattress, rotate occasionally

Non turn mattresses basically mean that the mattress is one sided, this means that the fillings and topper are only on one side so make sure when you first receive the mattress that you put the comfortable side on top otherwise you will have a very uncomfortable sleep. Take note however, a non-turn mattress should still be rotated frequently to prevent the common dip that you may otherwise get from sleeping in the same position over time.

Quilted top with attractive pattern design in 6 colourways

Unique to the iGel range comes the ability to have different designs and colour options for your mattress. I'm a big fan of iGel and find their mattresses to always be of high quality, however, your mattress will be covered by sheets and covers, my advice is to buy whichever has a earliest delivery lead time.

Mattress height: 26cm

26cm is fairly deep for a mattress and comes with enough depth to feature many good quality components and comfort layers necessary to get a good nights sleep

Customer Reviews For The iGel Advance 1600 Mattress

Based on 60 reviews
5

The quality of the iGel bed is very high and just what I wanted. The moment I lay down, I knew this was the mattress for me. I would definitely recommend this mattress to anyone who likes to sleep on a firm mattress - its still got some softness but its just right and very comforting! So far Ive been sleeping on the iGel mattress and iGel pillow for 1 week and it feels great, as if it was made for me! Very pleased and happy with my purchase. Not cheap, but totally worth it!!! Thank you :)

5

We are totally delighted with this mattress. It has already given us improved sleep because it helps us to maintain a comfortable temperature as well as support. We bought the Igel pillows to go with the mattress, and they are well worth the additional cost. Delivery was eventful as the delivery truck broke down, but we were kept informed and Bensons made sure the mattress was delivered on time by sending it by courier. Great service - above and beyond. Very pleased.

3

While the mattress is comfortable it is not like we were told. It was said to be cooling when you sleep whereas I find it warmer than the last one I had and we have a thinner duvet. One of the main reasons I chose this one so a bit of a let down especially for the cost we paid.

5

We've been using this mattress for the last few weeks and can confidently recommend this product . Its an extra firm mattress .. best part is that you don't sleep on springs .. but on memory foam which is very comfortable ... I've been sleeping well with no backache

5

Fantastic mattress After trying what probably equated to hundreds of mattresses as soon as I sat on this bed I knew it was the one for me The only criticism being is that the edges roll away but we soon got use to this

4

Mattress not comfortable. Feels like falling off bed sideways as mattress Not flat at edges. Need to have a pillow at foot of bed To support legs. We will be coming into store on Monday to try other Mattresses.

Third time lucky. We had two other mattresses for our nar3 boat from other sorcerers. First to hard, second to soft. This one ticked the boxes.

When buying a new mattress we know spending extra money on it would be worth it, this has been so comfy from day 1, no issues at all.
