Why our sleep experts loved it
The ActiGel® Arctic 2600 Mattress by Therapur is one of the most popular within the range, with over 700 positive reviews and a great offer, this is one not to be missed.
Let's start with the support layer, this mattress utilises pocket springs as a base, that's my favourite. A pocket spring base is better than many of the alternatives available, ranging from open coil traditional, to reflex foam, neither offers the same level of support that a pocket spring base can achieve.
Onto the comfort layer and you get a decent serving of actigel. This is the layer that separates your body from the springs and without it your mattress would be far more uncomfortable. Fortunately the actigel layer operates as a fantastic comfort layer and one that serves this product well, giving you a soft, squishy and moulding platform that makes it feel like you are sleeping on a cloud.
I really like this mattress and I'm not alone, the 500+ other people that have reviewed all love it too with an impressive 93% consumer satisfaction at time of writing. This is impressive because it shows that after receiving the product the vast majority are satisfied with the cost, quality and value perceived, all of which are necessary in turning a good product into a great product.
Negative reviews are few and far between but we did find a couple mainly around perceived firmness. What appears to be happening is many of the Dreams shop floor models are due a refresh and as such have naturally softened over time, this in turn creates an unrealistic expectation as the mattresses that are then been delivered are feeling firmer than what was trialled in store. This isn't too much of an issue in that the complaints are not around quality, rather tension differences. We'd advise giving your new mattress sufficient time to bed in as settlement and softening will naturally occur.
Positive reviews far outweigh the negative reviews however, many of which you will see below. Positives include the great back and neck support with many reporting their ailments in this area have completely subsided. Others are quick to remark and the great quality to cost on offer with people saying that their sleep has never been better.
Overall this is a great quality mattress at a reasonable price point. The spring system and the quantity of those springs are both at the upper end of the quality segment and the addition of breathable gel layers for comfort will only further aid in the all around pleasurable experience that this mattress will bring, I love it.
*some elements of this review and the reviews supported by customers were offered against the previous model known as the Therapur ActiGel Plus Harmonic 2200 Mattress. The TheraPur ActiGel® Arctic 2600 Mattress is an upgraded model that takes everything that was great about the response and added more springs for enhanced support and better body contouring.
