Yes, the flash freeze process unique to Talalay produces extremely uniform latex and is much more costly than the dunlop process. Vita Talalay uses geo-targeting and renders results based on your IP address location.

What is the difference between Vita Talalay and Talalay Global, and their products? Thank you.

@roosterfire: My impression was that Vita Talalay makes the highest quality talalay latex in the world. For example, their talalay latex is used in the mattresses of this large Swiss company, which probably makes the best mattress spring units in the world: www.huesler-nest.ch/en/ch/products/sleep...liforma-federelement

Their latex is also used by Savvy Rest, which Ken Hightower mentioned on another thread yesterday, see comment #4 here: www.themattressunderground.com/mattress-...-mattress.html#83886

If you want the opinion of someone who's been using latex from both companies for over 20 years here goes: In the past the Vita Talalay has out performed the old Latex International products however when Latex International changed ownership and became Talalay Global that brought in fresh money which was spent on product quality upgrades and much more. As of today I would say that TG has the edge on overall quality and if I were replacing my own bed I would go with TG over Vita Talalay. There is no wrong choice however.

Today was the big day. I ordered my custom DIY mattress form Arizona Premium Mattress
Queen :
L&P Combi-Zone coil base
2" Natural Dunlop support layer
3' Natural Talalay comfort layer
Bamboo with wool mattress cover
After over 25 hours of research there was no second guessing about which company I wanted to buy a mattress from. Ken made the transaction personal and thorough, a real gem in the production and sales industry, in this case a latex mattress expert!
I look forward to it's arrival, our first new mattress in our adult life.
Thank you Ken!

Todd - Congrats on your decision and purchase from APM! Interesting configuration... rare to see the combo of Dunlop and Talalay layers in a hybrid configuration with the L&P coil base. Hope it meets your needs and exceeds expectations, and looking forward to your comments on the experience once you've had it for a bit. Enjoy in the best of health!
