Flobeds vZone experiences?

Heavily leaning towards a EKing vZone right now. I'm slightly concerned about how all those divides the top layer may feel, more precisely how the gaps between them may feel.

For instance what if I'm not lined up perfectly and my hip is right between two layers in the gap between them? Could this gap develop larger over time with wearing of the velco?

It seems the hip piece is pretty big though and I'm betting everything will line up pretty well. I have also read reports of possible downgrade from vZone if not happy with it? I also think the convoluted latex topper will mitigate or eliminate feeling any divides between the top layer.

As a side note: Part of reasons I'm going for Flobeds is: better website than sleepez, and one manufacturer latex international instead of using five different manufacturers where maybe even more than one foam manufacturer could be used in same bed.. also I see flobeds has had a bit of mainstream exposure, with mentions in newsweek and several pro athletes using their products - all comforting whether merited or not. I think many of these mattress companies would do themselves a great service paying to have a nice up to date professional looking website

Hi jaybackintheday,

You can see some comments with latex split layers in post #2 here . You won't feel any splits (there isn't a gap) and it won't become larger over time. The effect of the zoning willl also be moderated and "evened out" with the layers above it.

As a side note: Part of reasons I'm going for Flobeds is: better website than sleepez, and one manufacturer latex international instead of using five different manufacturers where maybe even more than one foam manufacturer could be used in same bed..


Just to clarify this ... Flobeds uses Radium for their latex ... not Latex International. While SleepEz does provide the option to choose ... they don't "mix and match" their Talalay manufacturers so you would only have one type of Talalay (or Dunlop) in your mattress.

We have only had our split king vZone mattress since January but like Phoenix said, you can't feel any gap or splits between the sections.
The Flobeds website isn't up to date though as they don't use velcro anymore. The pieces that make up the vZone layer now come sewn into a cloth covering with individual compartments with zippers for each piece of the layer.

I see, looks like flobeds website may need some updating as well, as they have LI video on there and I think it says LI on the tags they show on their mattress videos but Id have to go back and look to be 100% certain. Being able to choose the manufacturer from SleepEz, especially if there was some kind of tags or at least papers indicating the manufacturer with the mattress has me swayed a bit towards SleepEz now if I can get 4 layers for $600 less than the vZone which I may not need since I dont have chronic aches or anything and am young still..

Hi jaybackintheday,

I probably should have included this in my last reply but you can read more about the vZone in post #4 here and of course they will provide more information as well when you talk with them.

You are certainly looking at some very good options :).
