Why Our Sleep Experts Loved It

becky says

Finding the right mattress can be a difficult process, weighing up numerous pros and cons to find what might be suitable. The Relyon Repose Gel Fusion throws a few different things at you to see what sticks and in this instance, it performs admirably, with a unique gel and latex combination that can make for a perfect all-season nights sleep. Let's dive into the different layers and see what makes it great, but first, a quick overview.

The support layer

The Relyon Repose Gel Fusion 1600 Pocket Mattress is a medium-firm product that is designed to keep you cool and comfortable while you sleep. It features a unique 2cm layer of gel-infused latex, which is pressure-relieving and helps to dissipate excess body heat. The bed also has features an impressive 1600 Posturepocket™ springs, which support you where you need it most and respond to your unique shape and weight. These 1600 Posturepocket™ springs, are designed to support you where you need it most and respond to your unique shape and weight. Pocket springs are known for providing a superior level of support compared to traditional coil springs, as each spring works independently to support your body. This can help to reduce the transfer of movement between you and your partner, leading to a more peaceful sleep.

The comfort layer

Onto the comfort layer that utilises the 2cm of gel-infused latex we spoke about previously. The latex is a natural material that is known for its durability and supportive properties, making it a popular choice for mattresses. The gel infusion helps to keep you cool as you sleep, making it a great choice for those who tend to get too hot in bed.

Other benefits

One of the standout features of the Repose Gel Fusion 1600 Pocket Mattress is its ICE fabric technology, which is designed to help you fall asleep faster by cooling your skin. The cover of the mattress is also micro quilted and infused with Eco Fibre, which helps to reduce moisture for a fresher feel, and Bio Protect, which guards against dust mites and other allergens.

Who will the mattress suit?

In terms of comfort, the medium-firm feel of the Fusion 1600 Pocket Mattress is a good balance between plush comfort and a firmer feel. It is ideal for those who prefer a firmer support who sleep predominantly on their back and stomach, although this tension does still allow for side sleeping in a combination and mixed perspective. that said, if you prefer a softer feel or are a dedicated side sleeper of average weight, you may want to consider the Gel Fusion 2800 Mattress instead.

One of the key benefits of the Relyon Repose Gel Fusion 1600 Pocket Mattress is that it is single-sided, so you don't have to worry about flipping it over. There are some benefits to this, for example, the lack of flipping means the comfort layer is only on one side, saving the manufacturer money that can then be passed on to yourself via a lower price point. There is also a caveat with single sided products though, in that you are not utilising to separate sides which may decrease durability slightly throughout the mattresses lifespan. The 8 year guarantee goes some way to reinforcing confidence in the single sided design.

Final thoughts

Overall, the Relyon Repose Gel Fusion 1600 Pocket Mattress is a high-performance mattress that is designed to keep you cool and comfortable while you sleep. It offers a good balance of support and comfort, and is backed by a comprehensive 8-year guarantee. If you are looking for a mattress that will help you get a great night's sleep, the Relyon Repose Gel Fusion 1600 Pocket Mattress is definitely worth considering.

  • 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.

What Makes The Relyon Repose Gel Fusion 1600 Pocket Mattress Great?

Latex

Latex mattresses will never be latex all the way through, rather, it will be used as a top later. We often find that latex foam, combined with either springs or reflex foam will be combined in order to create the perfect mattress.

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.

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.

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.

27.5cm deep

This is a pretty decent depth for a mattress. Not too thick that you need specialist covers and sheets, nor too thin that you're left questioning the quality of the product. While this depth is not in itself a guarantee of quality, it's a fairly good indicator though and you'll be able to utilise existing bedding.

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.

Includes turning handles

Oh turning handles are pointless I hear you say. Just try flipping and turning this product without handles. It can be a pain. Remember that mattresses should be both rotated and flipped frequently, not a problem if you are opting for a sinle, but those doubles and kings can get heavy. Handles are very good.

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

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.

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

Featuring a luxurious 2cm layer of gel-infused latex

Latex is a luxurious material of natural origins and is one of the better materials for mattress construction due to it's softness, breathability and resilience. You will find latex often used as a top comfort layer and occasionally used as a core/base layer due to it's additional supportive properties.

Pressure-relieving and helps keep you cool, fresh and comfortable as you sleep

A mattress with pressure-relieving properties can help to reduce pain and improve comfort for people who suffer from conditions like arthritis, fibromyalgia, and other chronic pain conditions. When choosing a mattress, it is important to consider the firmness, support, and pressure-relieving properties that will best suit your needs.

1600 Posturepocket™ springs support you where you need it the most

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.

Pocket springs respond to your unique shape and weight

Pocket springs are of considerable better quality than their poorer traditional open coil counterparts. Put simply, pocket spring contours better and supports better than other base layers. When it comes to pocket spring mattresses, the general rule of thumb is that the more springs the better. There are exceptions, of course, but for the best part this is likely to be a good quality mattress based on it's base layer.

Peaceful sleep - no roll-together or transfer or motion

A good rigid support layer with full edge to edge support means you do not get the sinking characteristic associated with poorer quality mattresses when you move toward the edge of the mattress. This is great as it prevents falling out of the bed at night, but also prevents roll off and roll together allowing both you and your partner to have uninterrupted deep sleep.

Medium-firm feel for great support and comfort in equal measure

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.

Slumberland's Edgemax helps reinforce the mattress border

Edge support offers a sturdy border across all edges of the mattress and gives you the opportunity to sleep in more positions and fully spread out on the product, embracing each and every part of the mattress and not having to stick to the middle. This is because the edging is reinforced and gives you that feeling of stability and roll-off prevention while you sleep.

Edgemax ensures more sleeping space and no roll-off

Edge to edge support is hugely beneficial in a mattress as it gives you the full surface area of the product to spread out. This ultimately means you can utilise the edges of the product without fear of dipping or rolling out.

Wrapped in a soft-touch knitted and cooling fabric cover

Knitted covers offer a good degree of breathability that helps keep you cool while you sleep which is also particularly important for hygiene. Knitted covers are also incredibly soft making the fabric an ideal outer layer.

Eco Comfort infused within the cover helps reduce moisture for a fresher feel

Eco comfort fibres are made completely from recycled materials. specifically plastic bottles. While plastic bottles might not immediately seem comfortable, that's the base material, not what it becomes. What you get from this material as an end result is a soft woven fabric that is luxuriously soft and extremely comfortable making it ideal for the environmentally conscious as well as those looking for a quality nights sleep.

Slumberland's ICE fabric technology is cooling and helps you get to sleep faster!

Cover is microquilted to lock in the luxury fillings

A quilted cover on a mattress can offer a number of benefits around comfort, durability and breathability. Perhaps most useful of all, the quilted cover can help protect your new mattress from spills and stains, extending its lifespan further.

Bio Protect 100% natural probiotics guard against dust mites and other allergens

The probiotic protection is a natural fabric treatment that helps protect against bacteria, dust mites and other allergens. Works very similar to a HeiQ Viroblock coating found in other mattresses. There are numerous different coatings available within the mattress industry, many of which offer similar protections and preventions around allergies.

Single-sided - no need to turn

A single sided mattress is typical for the industry and relates to how  a mattress has the comfort layer on one side of the mattress. only This means that the mattress only needs to be rotated rather than flipped. The benefit of single sided mattresses is that they require less upkeep in that there's no flipping, but also, there's less components involved in the creation which saves costs.

Turning handles included to rotate the mattress

It is import to rotate your mattress because it helps ensure even settlement of fillings and ensure even distribution is maintained. Further to this it also means that more than one area of the mattress is used equally, increasing longevity and lifespan as part of typical mattress care.

Depth: 27.5cm

This is a pretty decent depth for a mattress. Not too thick that you need specialist covers and sheets, nor too thin that you're left questioning the quality of the product. While this depth is not in itself a guarantee of quality, it's a fairly good indicator though and you'll be able to utilise existing bedding.

8 Year Guarantee

An 8 year guarantee is fantastic news for the consumer. A normal industry standard is 1 year. 8x the standard guarantee means that the supplier and retailer both feel that this product is pretty special. Buy with confidence, the average mattress typically gets replaced after 7 years and here we have the supplier offering beyond that

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.

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.

Gel foam

Gel foam is used as a top layer and offers much of the same sort of comfort as memory foam but without the heat build up normally associated with it. All the pros and non of the cons. It's a great choice for those looking for something a bit better than traditional memory foam.
