Today we're looking at the SleepSoul Paradise Pocket Cool Gel Mattress, another in a long range of new, largely similar products that all fit quite nicely into the mid-range quality but at a lower tier in terms of price. This means great news for consumers and additional choice on top! Let's dive into the specs and see what we're working with.
Let's start with that support and once again we have pocket springs of a reasonable capacity. It looks like SleepSoul have almost completely done away with their poorer performing open coil support layers and brought in higher quality pocket spring units. This is a positive consumer-centric move that will ensure better longevity and value for money from customers although it does mean there is an awful lot of very similar products in the SleepSoul lineup that all look to achieve the same thing. Unnecessary, perhaps, but a great value proposition all the same. This one features a medium tension that will give a decent level of support for your back while not proving uncomfortable for side sleepers either. The result is a goldilocks effect that proves largely suitable for most people. As always mileage may vary if you are heavier or lighter than the average and those that do need additional support should consider a firmer base.
Onto the comfort layer and this mattress has a base layer on the bottom and a single comfort layer on top. This means you do not need to flip the mattress which saves on inconvenience without proving overly detrimental to the settlement and durability. Do note that turning should still occur in line with manufacturer recommendations which will help in allowing it to last for longer and give increased comfort throughout its lifespan.
The comfort layer itself is powered by a cool gel foam. For this price point, that's fairly impressive and results in a clean and cooling nights sleep that breathes better than the competition and has many of the same bounce and sink properties of memory foam, with non of the heat retention downsides. The breathable nature of Gel Foam also means that you won't wake up throughout the night getting too hot, unlike memory foam competitors, ensuring a deeper and longer lasting nights sleep.
Finally you have that impressive 10 year warranty. Remember, the average mattress lifespan is pegged at around 7 years and so a 10 year warranty covers your mattress for entire lifespan and goes far beyond the 1 year offered by other retailers and manufacturers. It's a great product at a great price and with the reassurance to last.
