Why Our Sleep Experts Loved It

becky says

Sleepeezee have been producing high quality, award-winning mattresses for over 100 years. They stress the importance of personal comfort and restful sleep with their PocketGel Balance range of mattresses. The Sleepeezee PocketGel Balance 1200 mattress is a perfect balance of medium firm support and added pressure relief, thanks to the pocket spring technology built into it. The result is an exceptionally comfortable mattress that you’ll look forward to getting into every night.

What’s inside the mattress?

To start with the base layer, you get a generous helping of pocket springs from a premium manufacturer like Sleepeezee. Above the pocket spring core is multiple comfort layers followed by 20mm of gel foam. As is common with gel foam mattresses, the design is one-sided meaning you will only be sleeping on one side of the 36kg mattress. That said, don’t assume it is maintenance free as there is still rotation to occur (even if flipping will be unnecessary). Fortunately there are good quality handles on the side that can assist in the movement of this product from head to toe.

Onto how the product feels and Sleepeezee reckon that this mattress is classified as medium firm which comes in at around a 7 on the rating scale where soft is a 1 and firm is 10. This is in line with expectations and feels as you would expect.

Is it suitable for me?

Most people who are of average weight and features will find themselves sufficiently well supported thanks to the good quality pocket spring layer. The firmness designation definitely favours back and stomach sleepers however, side-sleepers are not completely neglected and may find sufficient comfort in this specification. For those who have a larger BMI than average the medium tension might offer just enough support to be suitable for you, although a firmer designation might be a better option.

There are a few consumer reports and reviews from customers that really love this mattress with the only thing to be aware of is that the top gel layer does tend to soften a bit over time but does not appear to cause dipping or any pain as a result.

One of the best things about Gel-Foam is that unlike competing memory foam products, the cooling properties on offer mean that there is less heat retention and heat build up allowing for a cooler and more refreshing night's sleep that does not feel warm to lie on. Ideal for those who are looking for a good all-season product.

More about how the top layer feels and reports suggest that there is not an excess amount of sink-age which means you are able to move more freely than competing products in this space, allowing for better movement that won’t have you waking up unnecessarily.

What should I watch out for?

Over the years there will be an amount of settlement and even reports of some softening, however, it doesn’t appear to sag as much as competitors and will remain supportive throughout its full and generous warranty period.

Key Performance Indicators KPI question mark

Our Key Performance Indicators are produced using a combination of specification-heavy algoritmic data points and user reviews. For example, a firm pocket spring support layer is more breathable and offers better back support but may prove unsuitable for side sleepers, the reverse is true for a soft-medium tension reflex foam support layer. This is one of 100+ datapoints considered when generating the below ratings.

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.

What Makes The Sleepeezee PocketGel Balance 1200 Mattress Great?

Individual Pocket Springs

The ideal choice in construction when choosing a mattress, pocket sprung mattresses offer, in our opinion, the best combination of support and comfort. The number of pocket springs can be equally important however

Staycool Gel

Stay cool Gel helps keep your body cool while you sleep. Gel is a great alternative to memory foam and even latex, both of which can cause you to get too hot without proper airflow (memory foam is the worst for this). This gel also operates as a part of the comfort layer and provides a high degree of comfort.

26cm deep

26CM is a deep mattress. This sort of mattress may require a slightly deeper fitted sheet to avoid it constantly popping off. That aside, 26CM is above the industry average in terms of depth and while not necesserily a guarantee of quality, you cannot get comfort and quality from a thin mattress

Medium to Firm Support (4)

Medium to Firm support is largely suitable for most people. Where medium is the typical catch-all, a medium to firm sits in the middle between medium and firm and gives that additional bit of support that is ideal for those of average BMI or higher, and those that suffer from any amount of back pain.

Air Vents

When you sleep you also sweat, when this happens it generally leaks into the mattress. Sounds a little gross but that is the way it works, no drama however as matresses are built to be breathable and air out any moisture buildup, the addition of air vents helps ensure this happens with peak efficiency

No Need To Turn

This means that the product does not need to be turned over, but make no mistake, that is not the same as saying a product does not need to be rotated. If you do not want dips in your mattress with time, be sure to rotate evenly every month where possible

Pressure Relieving

Due to the support structure in place within this mattress it advertises as benefiting from pressure relieving properties. The way a mattress can achieve this is through the use of a good quality spring system that can contour to the body, providing tension equally across all areas of the body dependant on sleeping position and pressure

Turning Handles

Have you ever tried rotating or flipping a mattress without handles? You have to do that weird thing where you use your head as a third arm as you sort of nudge it with your face. Take the handles as a blessing

1200 Springs

Typically, the more springs the better. The average mattress has around 1000 springs and so anything more than that is considered good. The firmness/tension of a mattress is also not dictated by the amount of springs and so you do not need to worry about the firmness being unsuitable when it comes to spring count. Simply the more springs, the better the mattress can contour to your body. 1200 springs is considered good.

NBF Approved Product

NBF stands for the National Bed Federation and is at the forefront of standards and legislation in the UK bed industry, these guys oversee the entire bedding industry with their mark and brand only being associated to those that follow a certain criteria of care and standards.

5 Year Guarantee Included

A 5 year guarantee is fantastic news for the consumer and shows just how much faith the manufacturer and the retailer both have in the product. Any problems within those 5 years and you will be able to go back to the retailer for a replacement.

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.

Medium Firm Support

Medium Firm is a tension that ranks around 7 out of 10 on the firmness scale. Where 5 is considered the standard average firmness, a 7 is slightly firmer. This tension is still largely suitable for the vast majority of people, especially those that like sleeping on their back, or, suffer from back/neck pain that requires a firmer feel.

No roll together

Specifically designed with roll together prevention in mind. This means the product likely has better quality internals and offers better support than other mattresses in the same price point.

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.
