Hi Paul,

I don't suppose you have any updates?

I am looking at the 3 models of foam/latex hybrids and am close to buying one. I cannot decide which one I like the most and am overthinking it. The lowest-priced model has 2" of foam on top of latex and is 10" overall, and it is intriguing. Very supportive and yet still soft.

My experience at the store has been positive. It is not beyond sales techniques, but it does seem a cut above the average mattress store. The store would not tell me the density of the foam, but I am going to ask for Sean and check in.

I am a little worried about it sleeping hot, but know this is a problem with memory foam. Their all latex-mattresses feel nice and I like the snappiness of the material, but I actually prefer the memory foam feel quite a bit.

They do not offer returns, but give you a year to decide whether you like the mattress or not. If you want to change your mind, you can return the mattress for credit minus a $170 restocking/disposal/etc fee, which isn't terrible considering it is a full year.

I like the store, but hoping the "natural" or "organic" materials are not increasing the price too substantially - either in terms of actual cost or in luxury cost of what people would pay for such a label. Just because frankly I think the synthetic high-quality materials are probably no worse health-wise.

Hi sunyata,

I'm sorry, but paulfranco89 never posted back with another update (I looked in other threads on the forum for you), but hopefully he'll see your comment and can offer his one-year follow-up.

Just wanted to say I purchased the 10" Memory-foam-Latex mattress. The experience was positive. There is a decent amount of sales, but I do believe that I got a quality mattress (assuming the 5lb memory foam is correct as previously stated on this forum) at a fair price, and I am hoping this mattress lasts for awhile.

After trying for 3 days at the store, this "Cherry Creek" model (the thinnest and least experience of the foam/latex hybrids) offers the great combination of softness and support I was looking for, truly a "comfort firm" or whatever they call it. I was surprised at how soft it was given how supportive it felt. I didn't find anything that similar at any other store I went to.

I receive the mattress in 2 weeks and will keep this forum updated as to how the experience goes.

Hi sunyata,

Congratulations on your new mattress purchase! :cheer: The combination of the higher density memory foam and the latex support core are good quality materials. I’ll look forward to your future updates once you’ve had a chance to sleep upon the mattress for a while.
