Tests & Verdict

Here we collect tests, guides and product reviews so that you can create a picture of what others think about the product. This analysis and review is based on my experience and 12+ years of industry insight.

Honestly, this mattress does everything really well, with great reviews for a really well established manufacturer.

2060 premium pocket springs which is at the top end in terms of density while giving improved body contouring.

The gel comfort layer has many of the same moulding properties of memory foam but without any of the downsides like heat retention. The result is a deep and refreshing nights sleep that will have you sleeping deeper and for longer.

Price point might be an issue for some on a tighter budget. I confess this one does hit the premium price point, but then so does the quality of the components. I've personally trialled dozens of iGel mattresses and they constantly rank at the top for quality and performance.

Why our sleep experts loved it

The iGel Pegasus Gold was one of the most desirable mattresses in the Bensons for Beds lineup for a number of years. In recent months, the Pegasus has been discontinued in line with a refresh to the entire mattress collection within the iGel segment. Since then however, there has been the introduction of a new mattress, the iGel Advance 2000, a fantastic alternative to the Pegasus that features much of the same fantastic build quality and suitability.

Suitability

*Assuming average weight, suitability will vary dependant on body type, use the quiz 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.

Ease of Use

  • Turning handles
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Mattresses typically need to be rotated frequently and having turning handles can be massively beneficial, particularly in larger sizes which can become fairly heavy.

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.

Brand Rating

  • Overall Brand Rating
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • This is based on community driven customer reviews tied to product reviews and grouped together at a brand level to produce a score.
