Bear Original Mattress
Molecule 1 Mattress
Bear Mattress (Original)
The Bear mattress is constructed with three comfort layers of gel-infused graphite memory foam and polyfoam, a transitional layer and a high-density foam base. The key feature of the Bear mattress is its cover. The company uses Celliant® technology that transforms your body heat into infrared light and emits them into the body’s tissue and muscles. This helps in speedy recovery after workouts or any physical activities. This can improve the overall sleep quality and duration.
The Bear mattress is a medium-firm mattress as it falls on 7.1/10 on the firmness scale. It contours as per the sleeper’s body without sinking too much. The most positive reviews are from people who weigh 230 lbs. or those with average weight groups.
Since this is an all-foam mattress, it inhibits motion transfer and does not produce any noise making it ideal for people who wake up easily when their partner moves. Some report that the mattress sinks when they sit along the perimeter or those who lie on the edges feel they will roll off the bed.
Bear mattress comes with a 100-night risk-free trial period and a 10-year limited warranty. Any defects in the mattress will be repaired or replaced as per the company’s discretion.
Molecule 1 Mattress
An All-foam model, Molecule 1 is made using memory foam and other comfort layers. There are three layers (1) a memory foam, (2) polyfoam transitional layer and (3) a high-density polyfoam base.
The mattress cover incorporates a temperature-sensitive polymer that alters as per the sleeper’s body temperature. Beneath the cover is the 2” comfort layer of the brand’s proprietary memory foam blend called RestoreFlo. Molecule 1 features air-engineering technology with open-cell memory foam that regulates the body temperature. The transition layer of Molecule 1 is 3” of polyfoam blend called RecoveryFlo. It contours as per the body shape and provides much-needed support. The support core (ContourFLO) of Molecule 1 is 7” of firm polyfoam. This base supports the whole mattress and maintains proper spine alignment.
The Molecule mattress is available only in one firmness option – rated 6.2/10 firmness scale. It is a medium-firm mattress that works for all types of sleepers including stomach sleepers. This mattress is most beneficial for back and side sleepers and those who weigh less than 230 lbs. Stomach sleepers who weigh more than 230 lbs. may feel sinking into the mattress that will put pressure on the lower back.
The company offers a 100-night sleep trial period and a limited lifetime warranty. In case of any defect in materials or workmanship, the company will repair or replace you with a new Molecule mattress.
