Becky's Thoughts On The Simba Hybrid Essential 1500 Pocket Mattress

The Simba Hybrid Essential 1500 Pocket Spring Mattress is probably one of the better mattresses we have tested in recent months. It’s one of those mattresses that suits such a wide range of people that it’s fairly difficult to find too much to complain about. Let’s break the offer down. To start with, the Simba Hybrid Essential 1500 Pocket Spring Mattress comes with a 60-night sleep trial, that’s 60 days from the point of delivery whereby you can trial the mattress in the comfort of your own home to decide whether or not you want to keep it. The trial takes all the risk of buying online out of the equation. With many competing products you have 14 day distance selling regulations to back you up but many mattresses cannot actually be returned once slept on. This is the unique selling point of the 60-night trial with the Simba Hybrid Essential 1500 Pocket Spring Mattress and one that many will be grateful for.

With this mattress, it deviates from the all-foam mattress-in-a-box model of previous contenders by introducing a mattress with 1500 pocket springs but with all the comfort of memory foam as a top layer. The result is a mattress that is both soft and also supportive while also being made of better materials (we love pocket springs).

This is probably my favourite mattress to date, not just because of the great quality components but primarily that offer that you can keep the product risk free for a number of days and return should you not like it. This sort of offer is rare in the industry and one that ensures the customer really does get a suitable product.

What Makes The Simba Hybrid Essential 1500 Pocket Mattress Great?

Hypoallergenic

This product is unlikely to cause any sort of allergic reaction. Ideal if you suffer from any sort of allergy problems

Made in the UK

These are made and manufactured in the UK, meaning that they all meet the same exceptional quality and durability that we expect from genuine UK manufacturing.

Handcrafted in the UK

Handcrafted in the UK means that the product is built here, by people being paid a fair and honest wage using certified and safe products of good quality and construction. UK manufacturing is some of th best in the world and all of that is reflected in this product

Pressure Relief

One of the big complaints when settling into a new mattress is that it does not feel as comfortable as they hoped, where this mattress shines is in the enhanced pressure relief that it offers. Each part of your body exerts different amounts of pressure against the mattress and through the use of springs and foams, these products are able to offer significant pressure relief as a result across the entire body.

Medium to Firm

Firmer than the average mattress, a medium to firm mattress is ideally suited to those that are looking for extra back support but still require and amount of comfort from their mattress. Ideally suited for a large range of the populus and becoming much more common, deviating away from the previous medium-for-everyone model.

Knitted Cover

It is common in the industry to have a knitted cover, these covers can come in a variety of patterns but are typically hard wearing and do not present problems for consumers.

Depth: 20cm

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 8 inch mattress site just above the most popular section of the scale, generally the safe choice to cover a wide range of sleepers.

20cm deep

A 20cm deep mattress is typical for the industry. There is enough room for some good quality springs and materials and enough room for a decent top layer of comfort. Bed sheets will nothave an issue fitting over this size of mattress

Single-sided

Single sided means only one side is comfy. Positives are you only need to rotate the mattress occassionaly rather than the more cumbersome rotate and flip. Downside is the lifespan of the product may suffer as a result, only marginal, but worth mentioning.

Approved by the National Bed Federation

The NBF is one of the most prestigious awarding federations in the industry, helped slightly by the fact that it is one of the only, however, it is still a great source of comfort knowing that this product holds approval by the team

Includes a free 60-Night Sleep Trial: swap for any other mattress if you don't love it!

The retailer are so sure that you will love this mattress that they are willing to provide a 60 night sleep trial to guarantee satisfaction. In that time, if you do not like the product you can swap it for a different one in the large collection of mattresses on offer. This offer comes as more retailers and brands look to offer similar pro-consumer terms previously held by the likes of Eve, Simba and Nectar. It's great news for the consumer and gives you the confidence to purchase online.

A hybrid mattress: the best of both worlds

No need to choose between springs or foam - you can have both!

Not too firm or too soft, rated medium-firm

A medium firm tension mattress is slightly firmer than your average medium mattress. This is ideal for those who either prefer a little bit more support, or, those that have a slightly higher BMI than average. You may also benefit from a medium firmness mattress where you are suffering from neck/back pain as the additional support can help prevent and alleviate these symptoms.

1500 pocket springs support and care for you as you sleep

Pocket springs are probably the best support layer you can get in a mattress helping to provide measured and even support across your body where you need it most. What's more, the unique feeling of pocket springs hugs each point of your body, offering contouring across each pressure point to relieve aches and pains. Lesser models will frequently include alternatives to pocket springs like open coil traditional springs and reflex foam. Do not be fooled, while pocket springs are often slightly more money than their counterparts, you are typically getting a better spring system and base layer.When it comes to pocket springs and the quality within, the more springs generally the better as the density will increase contouring ever-closer to your body as you sleep. 

Springs are crafted from 100% British steel, made in Leeds

A super-comfy layer of snuggly Simbatex

Soft and breathable hypoallergenic knitted cover

Allergy sufferers often experience the problem of waking up in the middle of the night or having to get up in the morning with a stuffy nose and eyes. The reason why you wake up with a stuffy nose is because your mattress has accumulated dust mites, mould and mildew, all of which are allergens. The solution is a hypoallergenic mattress is made from materials that do not support mould or dust mites. They also have anti-microbial properties that effectively kill any bacteria that may come into contact with it.

Breathable border for optimum airflow - helps keep you cool

The mattress comes with breathable side vents that allow the mattress to remain cool while you sleep. Another benefit to being breathable is that you naturally sweat during the night and the cool and breathable nature means that your mattress will remain hygienic for many years to come.

Sturdy base with complete edge support - more space to snooze

Edge support is really important and often found in the more premium end of mattresses. This edge support allows the edges of the mattress to have the same degree of tension as the inside of the product giving you confidence in the edges and helping to prevent roll of through the strengthened edge.

No need to turn, easier to care for

Rolled-up - easier for you, better for the environment

10 Year Guarantee

A 10 year guarantee is a huge reflection of just how much trust the manufacturer and the retailer have in their product. for reference, mandatory requirements are for a 1 year guarantee.

Pocket springs

Pocket springs are like natures own springy piece of comfort, except they are not from nature. Alas, pocket springs are a very good part of a mattress and often found in the more premium models. Lower quality products will frequently use open coil spring setups, where pocket springs house each spring in a tiny pocket for additional stability and continued support. Pocket spring typically lasts longer than open coil due to this.

Reinforced mattress edge

One of the most common complaints in the industry is against mattresses with a weak mattress edge. It can often result in the user feeling like they are going to fall off the side of the bed and bed avoided. This mattress has a reinforced edge, something that helps ensure that particular scenario is avoided when you get close to a mattress edge while sleeping.

Rolled-up

Rolled up mattresses are ideal for anyone looking at trying to get a mattress up a tight staircase or in a car to bring home from the shops. Do not missunderstand just how troublesome getting a mattress up stairs can be. Heavy and cumbersome, sometimes a rolled up mattress that expands to the side of a full mattress anyway, may be the better option

Fire Resistant

Fire resistant does not mean the product will never catch fire, rather, it will not go up in flames quite so quickly. Resistant to fire in the same way that I am resistant to kisses, sooner or later you end up giving in.

When I saw online I must of read it so many times as I didn't want to get wrong.When it came it I aired it out and put my bedding.As soon I got in bed I felt it was very comfortable not hard , my back pain had gone within a few minutes even if I sit up and rest my legs I can be on my mattress 24 hours but before u couldn't I could get up.In my mattress I can read lie down , do my zoom meetings, training, work without having to keep moving as its stays the the same.

5

Didn't know where to start choosing a new (well overdue) mattress, heard a lot about Simba so we gave it a go. Best night sleep ever, my wife does get restless and it's either improved or I'm not noticing her moving about.The support is fantastic and it's comfortable too, firmish feel but you still sink into it.Best decision we have made in a long time, happy to recommend.

5

OK - good service , delivered on time and old mattress taken away .The SIMBA is certainly acceptable I wont bother sending it back under their 100 night guarantee but something about it not quite to my liking. Maybe it needs to sit on a divan rather than an oak framed bed like mine.Anyway it's not causing me any sleepless nights , so Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz !

5

Can't fault my Simba mattress, getting the best nights sleep I can ever remember, supports me from head to toe, my lower back is feeling fantastic, a problem area for me.The mattress is rolled which is really convenient in this pandemic. The mattress is very well made and really comfy too.Will recommend to everyone.

5

Unreal bed!! Its medium to firm which is perfect! Still has that softness but isnt one of those memory foams where you completely sink into it and then its hard to get out of bed! This is why I adore this bed! Plus it came exactly on the time it said it would and the very next day! Super super happy with it!

5

Really comfortable but it hasnt helped my bad back or shoulder pain at all when sleeping, perhaps its mainly for back sleepers rather than side sleepers? Nice design though and Id say medium firmness, much lighter than our previous tempur which is good for a Storage bed with has struts.

5

Extremely comfortable. I am a fidgety sleeper and on previous mattresses this would disturb my partner no end. With the Simba, my movements only affect the part of the mattress I'm sleeping on - he doesn't feel or notice me tossing and turning! Both our sleep has massively improved.

5

After months of back ache leg ache on old mattress, decided to go for Simba after reading several reviews, it takes a bit of getting used to, but I think that was to do more with what we were used to, this has improved our sleep no end would recommend

5

Lovely feeling mattress, it makes me feel comfortable no matter what position I might be sleeping with. Often if I'm having a good sleep, I seem to mould into the mattress and not move, so I wake up feel refreshed and well rested.

5

Matris is very comfortable. Also, it is made in the UK 100%. As I read many wright-ups before purchasing the matris. It is very important for me to get a comparable night's sleep as I have broken the cervical spine.

5

Service and delivery excellent, no funny smell after mattress out of plastic covering and very comfortable to sleep on. I prefer a softer mattress and this is on the soft side, so not for people who like medium to firm

5

probably a good mattress for people who like memory foam but not for us, i found that you sink into it and if you roll over, you fall back into the mould and it feels uncomfortable until it reshapes itself.

5

Very comfortable mattress, wish I had changed sooner. No more hip pain in the morning. Also can't feel when the dog jumps on or off the bed like I could with the old spring mattress.

5

Amazing back support, its firm yet it has some give on the top surface so it isnt hard to sleep on. We use this on a solid oak bed frame and its the best mattress weve ever had.

5

The back of my leg doesn't hurt so much when laying on my back. It feels great getting into a warm bed. Feels medium but very soft. Don't want to get out of bed so cozy.

5

It is okay that I sleep well. I will see how I feel if I am happy to keep this Mattress. Under 60 days limit when I decide to change the mattress before end of 60 days. Thanks

5

Wish I had bought this Simba mattress sooner, fantastic buy, no problems sleeping, very comfortable and no aches or pains. Chalk and cheese from previous 12 year old mattress!

5

I have a simba mattress but mine is thicker, I brought this one for my daughters single bed, but it was not thick enough and not very comfortable, so I had to send it back.

5

Product conveniently arrived vacuum packed so was easy to move. Mattress extremely comfortable and cosy, feels great and I've slept so much better since having it!

5

Very supportive matras, feels much stiller than a conventional spring matras because of the memory foam... you dont notice your partner turning around as much

5

Comfort is paramount to us. The mattress has that in spades. Thank goodness I no longer have to go to work. It would be hard to get out of bed. Love it.

5

I had another well known mattress,was too soft no support no sleep.I purchased a simba,what a difference, I sleep 100% better,no Backache or issues.

5

So far so good. Very thin mattress compared to my last one. Moulds to your body very quickly. Took a little while to get use to, as quite firm.

5

It's very supportive, I like that my side of the mattress doesn't move when my partner is on the other side of the bed moving about.

5
