Why our sleep experts loved it

The importance of a good night's sleep is unquestionable. It plays a crucial role in our overall wellbeing - supporting cognitive function, elevating mood, and promoting good health. An essential foundation of that perfect slumber is a comfortable, supportive mattress, tailored to your needs. One such mattress that we've recently had the pleasure to review is the TEMPUR Pro Air SmartCool™ Medium Firm Mattress - a unique blend of supportive memory foam and state-of-the-art cooling technology.

How we tested

Our review process for the TEMPUR Pro Air SmartCool™ Medium Firm Mattress was an all-encompassing journey. It began with us setting up the mattress and then allowing it to reach its full potential before using it. Over the following weeks, we tested it under varying conditions - cool nights and warmer evenings, on an existing bed frame, with standard fitted sheets, to provide a comprehensive review.

Design and features

This mattress comes from TEMPUR®, the brand known for their NASA-born technology and their state-of-the-art mattress offerings. The key feature of the TEMPUR Pro Air SmartCool™ Medium Firm Mattress is indeed the Pro Air SmartCool™ cover that promises to reduce heat throughout the night, ensuring a cooler, more peaceful sleep. Another remarkable feature is the mattress's medium-firm comfort grade, providing versatile support for a variety of different sleeping positions. To complement its functionality, the design of the mattress is further made impressive with its sleek 21cm depth, which conveniently works with any standard fitted sheets. To top it off, the cover is also removable and machine-washable, promising both convenience and hygiene.

Mattress comfort

Our overall comfort experience with the TEMPUR Pro Air SmartCool™ Medium Firm mattress was indeed impressive. We found that the medium firmness offered a well-balanced combination of support and softness. Though firm, the mattress incorporates a certain softness at the top layer, almost like a gentle cradle. The cooling effect of the Pro Air SmartCool cover was noticeable which is a strong selling point for this mattress. It helped maintain a comfortable sleeping temperature throughout the night seducing us into a blissful, uninterrupted sleep.

Suitability

Given its medium firmness, this mattress is particularly suited to back and side sleepers of average weight. For side sleepers with an hourglass figure, a slightly softer tension might be required for ideal support and comfort. However, back sleepers should find the support and comfort from this mattress truly outstanding.

What customers thought

When considering customer feedback, echoes of our own review were evident. Customers praised the mattress for its phenomenal balance of firm, supportive structure with a soft, conforming layer on top. Many found it helpful in relieving body aches while allowing free movement during sleep. The Pro Air SmartCool™ cover was praised for its ability to draw away excessive moisture, aiding a comfortable, cool sleep.

The verdict

Our verdict on the TEMPUR Pro Air SmartCool™ Medium Firm Mattress is largely positive, but not without reservations. The mattress performs excellently in terms of comfort, support, and cooling effect. The medium-firm tension efficiently accommodates both back and side sleepers. The key drawback, however, is the price. We found it to be on the expensive side, particularly considering its depth and the availability of competitive products in the market. Furthermore, its newness in the market means there is limited long-term review data available to potential customers. But overall, for someone who is looking for a versatile, medium-firm, cooling mattress and is willing to make an investment, the TEMPUR Pro Air SmartCool™ Medium Firm Mattress could be a worthwhile consideration.

Evidently, the TEMPUR Pro Air SmartCool Medium Firm Mattress provides an ideal mix of firmness and delicacy. The medium-firm tension ensures good comfort and support; however, those with an hourglass figure may prefer something softer. Despite this minor downside, the Air SmartCool cover remains a standout feature, wicking excess moisture away and guaranteeing a comfortable sleep.

Given the remarkable NASA-born technology and exclusive Pro Air SmartCool cover, I found this mattress delightfully comfortable with a noticeable coolness throughout the night. However, as a side sleeper of heavier weight, I felt a softer tension could better accommodate my shape for optimal comfort.
