What does a Millbrook Smooth Tech Luxury 4000 Pocket Mattress have in common with the likes of Tempur, Dunlopillo and Hypnos? Normally not a huge amount, Millbrook is renowned for their mid-market offerings and have generally stuck toward this arena for a number of years. Not so with this Luxury 4000 mattress however where the product sees itself in the enviable position of being able to go head to head with some of the most luxurious and prestigious offerings from premium brands. Let's dive into what makes this one particularly special.
Starting with that support layer that typically sits at the base of the product and this is where you start to appreciate that something quite special is within reach. The base layer has pocket springs, which we already love and rate particularly highly, but this time in a 4000 spring setup. Now, depending on who you speak to, there is a theoretical limit of around 2500 springs before those that follow offer any benefit, however, the springs in this instance are tripped up and combine full length springs with micro-pocket springs. The result is full body contouring that adjusts and adapts to your each and every move. Roll together is a thing of the past, roll off edge protection is as strong as we've seen and the layer ultimately just does a great job of providing support which is exactly what it is supposed to be doing.
Available in a medium to firm tension this product will prove popular with those looking for enhanced back and neck support and primarily suit back and stomach sleepers, although there is room for side sleepers thanks to the less-than-firm tension.
Onto the comfort layer and the Smooth Tech Luxury 4000 Pocket packs deep and luxurious layers of wool into the top of the mattress to protect you from the springs underneath. This is great because not only is wool environmentally friendly, it is also both supremely comfortable and also very breathable. The result, when paired with equally breathable pocket springs and a good slatted base, is a mattress that breaths and allows significant air circulation to occur while you sleep. This, in turn, creates a cooler and more refreshing nights sleep where you will not get too hot, nor too cold, proving to be a perfect all-season mattress.
Long term reviews will be absent for a while yet and while we see great value in this type of premium mattress, we do begrudge that the price point may still alienate those lured in by lower prices in the industry. As a result, we don't expect the Millbrook Smooth Tech Luxury 4000 Pocket Mattress to be a bestseller overnight, and that's a shame as the quality of materials combined with fantastic 60 night sleep trial all pair beautifully with the 10 year guarantee to bring home a truly great night of sleep that your body will thank you for.
