Overview

becky says

The Argento Backcare Mattress from Slumberland is the perfect choice for those who like a firm mattress. It has 1000 pocket springs which are individually wrapped with cotton and provide excellent edge-to-edge support, so you can sleep comfortably without rolling together. Made in Britain, this mattress has a unique selling point in that it is also a double sided seasonal mattress which means that one side keeps you cool while one side keeps you warm. Ideal for each contrasting season and ensuring that you can remain comfortable all year round.

With roll-together protection and edge support you have a fine mattress in a firmness rating of firm that will help give an orthopaedic feel while still being soft enough to give adequate comfort to help offset the necessary support.

The Vancouver Backcare Mattress comes with a very impressive 5 year guarantee that will cover nearly the entire lifespan (7 years) of a mattress, giving you complete confidence and piece of mind as to the suitability long term of this product.

Reviews for the Argento are particularly impressive, with the vast majority loving this mattress. Key takeaways are that customers particularly enjoy the firmer feel the mattress provides particularly when paired with the luxurious comfort layer. At time of writing there aren't any negative reviews or real cons to report and customers seem genuinely happy with the product. As with buying all mattresses online tension can be hard to gauge. Fortunately all customers so far agree with the tension grading that has been given and so you can buy with confidence that the tension will have a firmer than average feel.

Reasons to Buy

Impressive 5 year guarantee that is far better than average. 

Firmer feel will appeal to many looking for additional back and neck support with full body contouring from the luxurious and premium pocket springs.

Reasonable price point given the quality.

Reasons to Avoid

The firm designation might prove unsuitable for side sleepers who are looking for a bit more bounce.

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 Mattress Great?

Firmness rating: 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.

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. 

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.

Customer Reviews For The Slumberland Argento Backcare Mattress

Based on 129 reviews

I Bought this mattress for a vintage bed with oak wooden head and foot. I never thought about the depth of the mattress when I chose it. When it was delivered it was taken upstairs and put on the bed. I was surprised to see that it had come right to the top of the foot board. I removed the plastic covering and made the bed up with sheets and duvet etc, which of course made it even higher. To get into bed I have to take a little leap. But the mattress is very comfy - firm but comfy that was just what I wanted. It has a gorgeous rich fabric cover on it and I would highly recommend. I just wish it had been a little less deep for my bed.

4

It is firm therefore it gives me support where I lacked it before. I like the ride height as it makes it easy to dismount, so to speak. The interior sings to me when I turn over (occasionally only at the moment).If it becomes regular I would have to contact you, bearing in mind it is almost new, and I am the sole user. Thank you. Michael

5

The main quality you want in a mattress is comfort and as we haven't slept on it for a night yet (just did a brief test) I can't honestly rate it for comfort but it seems very well-made and of good quality. It's a firm mattress which is what we wanted but it's in the spare bedroom so our guests will be the judges.

5

This mattress is very firm and I was a little worried about it as I am no expert at mattress buying and just knew I wanted fairly firm and not memory foam, but I followed the sales assistant's advice and really pleased with the purchase.

5

Was worried that we wouldnt sleep on it on our first night but slept through til early hours of morning 6am it was lovely best nights sleep Ive had for a couple of years and it continues so Best Buy weve done

5

I am very pleased with my mattress. Im sleeping better as its suits me and is so comfortable. I can also manage it by myself when turning which is means its not too heavy.

I occasionally suffer from lower back ache and have found sleeping on this mattress a great help. It is just firm enough for me and gives me the right amount of support.
