Overview

becky says

The Slumberland Argento Backcare Extra Firm Mattress is a dual seasonal mattress with 1000 pocket springs for edge-to-edge support and bringing the body contouring necessary for decent comfort.

Double sided and fully reversible, turning the bed over in the summer will give you a mattress with a different feel to that in the winter provided you conform to seasonal flipping. The side that will be touching your mattress will be soft and cool for summer, while the other side will be warmer with an inviting, wool layer.

When it comes to that support layer, we're working with an extra firm tension made from high quality pocket springs which will give luxury support at a fair price.

The comfort layers, as mentioned previous, actually differ on the top and the bottom due to the reversible flippable nature of this all season mattress with one side aiding in keeping you cool and the other keeping you warm.

With a 5 year guarantee you have proof that the supplier and retailer both have confidence that this mattress will last, after all, it will be those having to stump for a replacement should the mattress fail within the guarantee 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.

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 Slumberland Argento Backcare Extra Firm Mattress Great?

Pocket-sprung double-sided seasonal mattress

A double sided mattress is one that comes with comfort layers on both sides. The benefit of this for the customer is that you get twice the surface area through a series of rotation and flipping that should become second nature to you as part of the recommended mattress care guidelines. A mattress that can be flipped means you get better settlement of springs and fillings over time which may also prevent dipping over the long term. 

Firmness rating: Extra Firm

When we fall asleep, our muscles relax and what that does is it allows our body to decompress. But when we're sleeping on a too soft mattress, the muscles don't have enough support and they're not getting the proper relaxation.The benefits of a firm mattress are that you're going to sleep more soundly,  your back pain is going to be relieved and you're going to have less muscle aches and pains.

5-year guarantee

This is an exceptional guarantee that is fairly uncommon within the industry, this shows that the retailer and supplier both have huge confidence in the product that they are selling. Any problems in the first 5 years? Call them and they will sort it.

Total 1000 firm pocket springs for edge to edge support

Pocket springs are a great support layer. Available in a variety of firmness's, the quality of a spring system is generally determined by the spring count. With 1000 springs this mattress represents a good quality to cost ratio, providing enough springs to successfully contour to your body and provide you with a great nights sleep.

Individually encased pocket springs for independent support and comfort to ensure no roll together

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.

Traditionally hand tufted for extra durability

Hand tufting typically makes a mattress feel firmer due to how the stitching from the cover carries through the mattresses layers. It is a great way to keep everything tight and together within the different mattress layers and acts as an increased tension providing better back and neck support.

Double sided - Flip seasonally and turn regularly to prolong mattress

A double sided mattress is one that comes with comfort layers on both sides. The benefit of this for the customer is that you get twice the surface area through a series of rotation and flipping that should become second nature to you as part of the recommended mattress care guidelines. A mattress that can be flipped means you get better settlement of springs and fillings over time which may also prevent dipping over the long term. 

Side 1 - Layers of English Wool for warmth in Winter

This is a 2 sided mattress that has different comfort layers on each side. The first side is made primarily of wool which makes it both comfy and warm, making it ideal for the winter months.

Side 2 - Layers of polyester for coolness in Summer

This is a 2 sided mattress that has different comfort layers on each side. The comfort layer on the alternate side of this product is made primarily of polyester which makes it both soft and cool, making it ideal for those warm summer months,

Mattress height: 27.5cm

With a mattress height of 27.5cm, this product has sufficient depth to offer a deep and luxurious sleep while still fitting normal bedsheets. This depth of mattress is fairly standard but is likely not suitable for the top level of a bunk bed.

Available in sizes: Single, Small Double, Double, King and Super King

This mattress is not available in custom sizes, caravan sizes or ikea sizes. Instead, this mattress is available in the universally common mattress sizes to suit most people, my preference is a king size, big enough to starfish in while being small enough to fit in most rooms comfortably.

Made in Britain

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