Becky's Thoughts On The iGel Advance 2000 Mattress

The iGel™ Advance 2000 Mattress features a premium, high-tech material at it's core: Graphene. When you sleep, the body releases lactic acid and carbon dioxide. This is the process that builds up muscle fatigue and creates wrinkles - which is why you want to have a mattress that can regulate temperature. The Graphene in iGel™ technology acts like a heat sink, absorbing the body's heat and transferring it to the surrounding air.

As a result, your skin will feel cooler and more comfortable all night long. The technology also works in reverse: when you sleep on an iGel™-enabled mattress, the mattress cools down, absorbing your body's heat and circulating it through the mattress with every movement. As a result, your body will stay cool and fresh throughout the night. As well as regulating temperature, iGel™ technology helps provide pressure relief against aches and pains so you can get to sleep faster.

This technology is unique to the iGel range and isn't available elsewhere. Further to the impressive iGel on offer, you also get an impressive 2000 pocket springs that are better than traditional open coil springs found in lesser quality mattresses. With pocket springs, the more the better with 1000 being typical for most mattresses. More springs does not equate to a firmer mattress, rather, just better body contouring and support.

In this instance, the iGel Advance 2000 Mattress is a firm mattress, making it ideal for those looking for something that is soft (thanks to the iGel) yet firm (thank to the pocket springs specified tension). Best suited to those looking for orthopaedic support but also suitable for others that want something slightly firmer than average.

What Makes The iGel Advance 2000 Mattress Great?

5 year guarantee

A 5 year guarantee is quite rare in the industry and is a great indicator of the retailer beleiving in their product. Anything go wrong in the next 5 years, no drama, get it replaced.

Breathable strong and stretchy mattress fabric provides lasting softness

Perhaps one of the most important qualities to look for in a mattress is breathability, without it they become soiled and damp. This requirement shouldn’t just stop with the top layer it should extend to the cover itself, this stretchy breathable cover will not only keep your nights dry it will also spring back into shape time and time again, getting you the most out of your mattress.

Anti-microbial, anti-bacterial and hypo-allergenic friendly

Anti-Microbial material creates an inhospitable environment for microorganisms that can live on the surface. These include archaea, fungi, protozoa, algae, and viruses. This material is also anti-bacterial, so these single-celled organisms would find it difficult to live in these conditions. These materials are also hypo-allergenic, relieving the symptoms of allergies and asthma, there are few allergens present such as mould and dust mites.

5-year guarantee

This is an exceptional guarantee that is fairly uncommon within the industry, this shows that the retailer and supplier both have huge confidence in the product that they are selling. Any problems in the first 5 years? Call them and they will sort it.

10-Year Guarantee

A 10-year guarantee is fairly unheard if within the mattress industry. Bear in mind that the average mattress has a lifespan of around 7 years before being replaced and you can soon realize why many suppliers do not offer this length of guarantee. When they do, however, like in this instance, you can be assured of a mattress of good quality because otherwise the retailer and supplier would lose money. As such, buy with confidence, if anything does go wrong, you'll be looked after

Hybrid iGel™ temperature regulating technology and pocketed springs with pillowtop comfort

Lots to unpack here. let's start with the iGel. iGel is great as a technology because it has much of the same properties as foam but with non of the temperature issues that can come from it. Moving on to the pocketed springs, another fantastic option, this time in the support layer of the mattress. Pocket Springs are at the top end of support systems in mattresses due to the way they are able to contour effortlessly to the person laying on them. The springs can all work independently, giving you the best comfort at a fair price.Finally, the pillowtop. A pillowtop is basically a secondary comfort layer on top of what was already a pretty good comfort layer already. this means you are getting twice the comfort at the same price and while fitted sheets might be a bit of a pain with this sort of setup, you can just feel the quality that comes with it.

With 7.5cm of extra deep new formula iGel™ for that just right comfort feeling

iGel™ is a material that is specially formulated to help prevent feelings of getting too hot or cold during sleep. The iGel™ layer in these mattresses is more than just conventional gel and features additional Ceramic Technology  that helps ensure excess heat is removed from the mattress and your body when you need it.

iGel™ works with your body’s natural temperature so that you do not sleep too hot, or too cold – you sleep just right

The gel is much cooler than traditional memory foam. It has many of the same properties as memory foam but because of the gel's heat diffusing design, it cools whilst providing good air circulation, pressure relief and support.

iGel™ crystals provide advanced body support by clustering in areas of body pressure, while the Memory Technology in iGel™ relieve aches, pains and pressure points

iGel™ is a material that is specially formulated to help prevent feelings of getting too hot or cold during sleep. The iGel™ layer in these mattresses is more than just conventional gel and features additional Ceramic Technology  that helps ensure excess heat is removed from the mattress and your body when you need it.

3000 pocket springs encased inside a protective foam wall, provide you with advanced body support

Pocket springs are some of my favourite in terms of offering a great supportive base for a mattress and these mattresses are no different. Offering an impressive 3000 pocket springs, that works out at considerably more than the 1000 average that you typically find across the industry and works as a strong indicator of the sheer quality that you are getting at this price point. More springs means more body contouring and better support but it is not an indicator of firmness and so do not wrongly assume that these mattresses will be too firm because that is not the case.

34cm mattress depth

The industry standard for mattress depth is 7 inches, with most offering a comfortable 10 to 14 inches. Generally, the higher the load, the deeper it needs to be. But quality is important as a well-built 10-inch mattress can be equally as comfortable and supportive as a budget 12-inch mattress. This 13 inch mattress sits at the higher end of the scale, worth consideration for those requiring support for higher weights.

Choice of two comfort ratings - 3 or 4

This mattress is available in both medium and medium firmness tension grades. These firmnesses are middle-of-the-road one size fits all approach to comfort and one that is likely to suit the average person really well.

Mattress height: 27cm

27cm is quite 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

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.

Handles on all sides to aid rotation

Rotating a mattress can actually be a bit of a pain without help and support. That's why we've included some handy-handles to make the job a little easier. Mattresses average around 35-40kg, without handles you sort of have to do that weird third-arm with your head thing that is both unflattering and fairly useless. Trust us, get handles.

iGel’s temperature-regulating mattress with Graphene technology

iGel mattresses are becoming increasingly popular in recent years, on the back of an industry once dominated by memory foam. The iGel range of mattresses has a gel comfort layer that  still gives you the sinking and wrap-around feeling of memory foam, but with better temperature regulation throughout.

2000 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. 2000 springs is considered great.

Graphene technology provides 7 times better heat transfer

This mattress contains graphene technology gel which has been researched and developed exclusively for Bensons for Beds as part of their iGel range. The graphene gel shares many of the same comfort properties of memory and gel foam but with far better heat transfer, ensuring you remain cool while you sleep. 

3cm of iGel 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

FreshNow™ for a heat and humidity relief night’s sleep

The FreshNow™ product is the quilted cover part of the mattress.  This cover has better moisture wicking properties than others while also being available in a multitude of different stylings 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.

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.

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.

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.

Firmness Rating: 4 - Firm

A 4 firmness rating leans toward a firm tension and feeling mattress. Firm tensioned mattresses are ideal for those that either have a preference in feeling toward firm, or, suffer from back and neck pain that would otherwise be compounded by a softer mattress.

Customer Reviews For The iGel Advance 2000 Mattress

the mattress when it eventually came was just as good as i had anticipated. however I was must dissatisfied with the customer service. my mattress was due to be delivered mid Nov on the anticipated delivery date which was due between 7am and 6pm I recieved a phone call at 9.15 on the day to say my mattress would not be delivered that day and the date was now 18th December which was 4 months after my order was placed!!!!

5

This is a very good mattress. So comfortable and the quality is great (will see how it performs over time) The mattress is excellent if you sleep with someone else who moves alot. The mattress does not move and disturb the other person which is great. The top layer of the mattress is really supportive in any sleep position

3

It's too early to give a five star review about this mattress. My partner is more comfortable on it than I am. I find it a bit 'squidgy', so I've put a woollen topper on it to make it a tad firmer. Perhaps I'll take that off one day and get used to the mattress. Otherwise, really well made.

5

Since delivery I have had some of the best night's sleep I have had in years on this mattress. Also to add the 'not too hot and not too cold' feature of the iGel mattress certainly is amazing. Mattresses and shoes. If your not in one, your in the other..... make a good purchase.

5

The delivery was well organized from the moment it was ordered We were contacted in the week and day before delivery The delivery guys were helpful and polite The mattress is superb comfy and perfect The pillows are brilliant we both slept on our side and they are great

3

The bed is very comfortable but Im not convinced the iGel is doing its job. Even with a summer quilt on in November the mattress seems very hot, not keeping our bodies cool as advertised. Im wondering what it will be like in the summer.

5

Bed is quite high but extremely comfortable. The gel makes it very warm. Got it in Autumn so hopefully will be cool in the summer, so cannot comment on that aspect. Expensive but well worth the money.

5

Weve only had the mattress for a few weeks so cant speak about longevity, but it is comfortable and as wed hoped. I just have to find nice deep fitted sheets now haha

5

At first it seemed a bit too firm but after a couple of nights soon settled in. I do feel the temperature regulation is not as good as I hoped. In the whole very pleased.
