The TheraPur ActiGel® Glacier 3600 Mattress is one of the newer mattresses offered from Dreams and has some high-end properties that make it a great choice for your next mattress. Made in the UK by expert craftsmen, this mattress comes in medium tension, the middle-of-the-road, ideal choice, for the vast majority of the population. You may find this mattress slightly too firm if you have a very low BMI, while you may find the mattress too soft if you have a high BMI or suffer from back pain. Typically though, this is more likely to be a suitable choice.
The TheraPur ActiGel® Glacier 3600 Mattress mattress comes with a pillow top cover, this is like having a permanent mattress topper included with your mattress, this makes for effectively double the comfort. In practise, it can make putting on sheets a bit of a pain, but the minor inconvenience is generally offset by the additional comfort layer and quality.
To help prevent overheating while you sleep, the mattress comes with trademarked ActiCool fabrics that have cooling properties to ensure you are never too hot, nor cold while enjoying REM sleep.
Reviews for this mattress are strong with an impressive 600+ reviews and growing steadily. Satisfaction remains strong also, with 88% of people recommending the product after prolonged use. Positive feedback mainly comes from a subset of people who were suffering from back and neck pain who are now pain free for the first time in years. That alone should go a significant way in showing the pro points of such a mattress specification. It's not all good news however, a few of the one stars do mention some quality control issues on a small number of products through the covid era when manufacturing was gridlocked. The good news is that as normalcy resumes we are beginning to see these filter through and more positives stack up.
What's more, the TheraPur ActiGel® Glacier 3600 Mattress has a new brand ambassador in the form of Jade Jones, British Double Olympic Champion in Taekwondo. The athlete is keen to bring to light all the benefits of the mattress, stating "The TheraPur ActiGel® Glacier 3600 Mattress has been a real game changer for me in ensuring I’m well rested ahead of big training days and, most importantly, big competitions." Strong praise from someone who needs a deep sleep.
*some elements of this review and the reviews supported by customers were offered against the previous model known as the Therapur ActiGel Response 3200 Mattress. The Glacier 3600 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.
Reasons to Buy
We really like the gel comfort layer, it is both breathable and soft with many of the bounce back and luxurious properties of an equivalent memory foam model.
Price point reasonable given the high quality materials utilised.
Reasons to Avoid
Pillow tops are a bit marmite in the industry, some love them, some do not. Think of it as a permanent mattress topper that cannot be removed, ideal for those who need a bit of extra comfort, but not suitable for all.
