The Jacobs Pocket Sprung Mattress is part the new Team GB range of Olympic mattresses under the Dreams Workshop brand. For those who are unaware, this brand is sold exclusively through the Dreams website and its offline storefronts and is available for a great price considering its impressive components.
There's a few unique points about the Jacobs Pocket Sprung Mattress that I like. To start, the base layer is made up of pocket springs, they are one of the best bases on the market, far exceeding reflex foam and open coil in their support and a personal favourite of mine that consistently performs well in all tests.
With 1628 springs (in a king size, other sizes may vary) on offer, there is more than enough to ensure each part of your body will contour to the mattress and give even and measured support which is going to be ideal for both back and side sleepers alike.
Another worthy consideration is the double sided nature of the mattress. With deep layers of luxurious fillings on both sides of the mattress, you are effectively able to both rotate and flip, maximising the surface area you can utilise and ensuring, in theory, increased longevity from the product due to improved settlement of both fillings and springs.
With a comfort grade and tension of firm, this mattress will be suitable for those that are looking for assistance with neck and back pain while also suiting those looking for a slightly firmer feel while still enjoying much of the comfort of a traditional, good quality mattress.
The mattress is well-reviewed too, with an impressive 600+ reviews and over 95% in consumer satisfaction proving that customers love their new bed. Comments are overwhelmingly positive with customers commenting on the good quality and comfortable nights sleep that people receive. Negative comments appear to be few and far between with peoples only real gripes around the firmness tension being particularly firm. Since everyones perception of what is firm may vary, compounded by the fact that there is no industry standard means that people may sometimes not receive the tension they expect. It's fair to say that this is a firmer than normal mattress that may not prove suitable for side sleepers and those with a lower BMI than average.
Reasons to Buy
A great mid-range option that performs exceptionally well and punches above its price point.
As always, a big fan of pocket sprung support layers, the reviews speak for themselves in this regard and customers are very happy with the full body contouring and edge support.
The 40 night comfort guarantee is a great way to trial the mattress to ensure full customer satisfaction. If you aren't satisfied you will be able to replace for a different model in the range.
Reasons to Avoid
The usual complaints that face any firm mattress where a few reviewers find the mattress either too firm beyond their expectation, or the other way round whereby it was too soft. This is an entirely subjective feeling that will differ person-to-person. Additional to this, heavier people will depress the springs further and since the springs have to work harder, will feel softer to each movement than if someone lighter is on the same mattress.
Support tension means this might not be suitable for side sleepers of average build who are looking for full sink-age when lying on the side.
