Why our sleep experts loved it
New from Silentnight comes the Ruddington Combination Mattress, a new product that fits into the upper end of the spectrum in terms of quality and cost. At this price point you're going to want something that's going to last and thankfully that's exactly what you will get thanks to Silentnights' impressive 5 year guarantee included with this mattress. Let's dive into the specifications and see what exactly is going to allow this product to stand out within the marketplace.
The Ruddington Comfort Layer - Triple Layer (Eco Comfort + Memory + Cushion Top)
Most mattresses will feature a single comfort layer at the top of the mattress to control softness and overall comfort with there traditionally being pros and cons of each.
Starting with the Ruddington it looks as though Silentnight is moving away from this single-layer model in their more prestigious range adopting instead a combination of three. In the mid-tier we have a fan favorite with plentiful helpings of that spongy bounce back memory foam material that will prove warming and comfortable, helping to give a sinking effect that has proven popular time and time again over the years.
Above the memory foam layer we have an eco-comfort layer that will aid in driving breathability to help ensure you don't get too warm while also being environmentally friendly in it's design whereby it is made solely from recycled bottles with an end result that is both soft and deep.
Finally at the top you have the cushion top layer, trapping the fibre fillings below and providing a final degree of comfort that gives a fuller and more bouncy feel to the end product.
The Ruddington Support Layer - Twin Layer (Mini Springs + Full Size Pocket Springs)
Onto the base layer and this is where you get the vast majority of your support. The usual advice applies here, pocket spring is good, open coil is bad and so forth. With the Ruddington we see our favourite pocket spring base layer in full-swing doing what it does best in giving full body contouring to the masses and helping with back and neck support. The same pocket springs will also help prevent roll together and also give full edge-to-edge support that is even and measured across the entire base of the mattress. The icing on the cake here comes in the form of additional micro/mini springs that sit as an additional comfort layer above the full size pocket springs. These micro springs give additional bounce while still protecting your muscles and body as you sleep, it's a practise that is becoming increasingly popular and the results are a higher spring count that allows the contouring of springs to be much tighter around your body resulting in better support.
While the Ruddington is still fairly new, you shouldn't be put off by the lack of reviews as this is a upper-segment mattress that is going to appeal to a niche subset of users who can afford to spend a bit more on their sleep. The firm tension offered will also serve as a reminder of the additional back and neck support on offer when you are willing to spend a bit more.
