Any weak links here? 30 Aug 2014 06:23 #1

Hi Phoenix, I was shopping around at Jordan's and found a mattress that seemed to fit me quite well. But then looking at all the materials listed, I was little overwhelmed to know if anything may be considered a "weak link" in this mattress. I was hoping you could look at it and let me know.....also, is this a pocketed coil innerspring? It didn't state so, but I had asked for that (is that what "individual encased" may mean?) Thanks!

You can see the guidelines I would suggest using in post #4 here .

The mattress is a pocket coil yes (individually encased coils) but if you look at the top 5" of the mattress you will see that 4" are very low quality materials (less than 1.8 lb polyfoam or 4 lb memory foam) and the last inch is "borderline" so it would definitely have some significant weak links (more than "about an inch or so" of low quality/density materials) and I would avoid it. This would be a very risky purchase.

Hi JayD2014,

The mattress specs you listed includes 2" of 1.2 lb polyfoam, another 1/2" of 1.5 lb polyfoam, another 1" of 2 lb memory foam, and another 1 1/2" of 1.35 lb polyfoam. All of these are lower quality/density and less durable materials and 5" in total of lower quality/density foams in the upper layers of this mattress would be an obvious and significant weak link and I would completely avoid it ... along with most if not all of the other Simmons mattresses as well.
