Why our sleep experts loved it
The ActiGel® Polar 2600 Mattress is one of the more exclusive and premium mattresses in the Dreams lineup. Part of the Therapur range, this mattress has exclusivity and won't be found anywhere else. Not only are reviews positive but the mattress has also won the award from Good Housekeeping Institute in 2021 which should give additional confidence for those looking to buy.
One of the many problems that people often report with comfort layers like memory foam is that they find themselves getting too hot, in part, due to foams heat retention, many mattress manufacturers try to offset this with cooling fabrics as a outer layer, but there's a better way, and that's with gel which this mattress comes with.
Gel comfort layers, much like memory foam, offer many of the bounce back and comfort features but with improved airflow and temperature regulation.
The product also features hypoallergenic materials which will help prevent allergies while providing more than enough comfort.
From the support layer we have a hybrid pairing of both pocket springs and soft tech springs, these work together to contour to your body's every movement. while reducing roll-together.
The TheraPur ActiGel® Polar 2600 Mattress also comes with a pillow top for a further layer of comfort which works alongside the layers beneath.
Reviews for the product are strong with over 600 reviews and an impressive, market leading 95% customer satisfaction. The positive reviews make note of the even support that you feel when lying down, giving measured and full-body comfort. The negative reviews are few and far between, but all focus around the same issue of firmness. It appears that those who tried in store have a different expectation to what was delivered when it comes to the tension. There are a number of reasons this occurs and it's one we come across frequently. Ultimately a mattress in store has been laid on and used, in some cases, for years. That's going to give a different firmness and comfort than something brand new out of the factory. The good news is that with time to soften, the mattress will fall in line with in-store customers expectations and result in a comforting and medium tensioned sleep.
*some elements of this review and the reviews supported by customers were offered against the previous model known as the Therapur ActiGel Plus Rejuvenate 2200 Mattress. The TheraPur ActiGel® Polar 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.
