Sleep on Latex | Firmness
Welcome to the Mattress Forum! .
Congratulations on the new Sleep On Latex(SOL) for your 6-year-old (and sometimes Mom) SOL are certainly a reputable/worthy option and being a member of this site it means that I think very highly of them and that I believe they compete well with the best in the industry . so much for buying from one of our trusted members. I assume you emailed Scott (at) TheMattressUnderground.com to get the discount coupon code they offer to TMU Consumer members.
I am glad that our forum was assistive in your research and helpful in making an educated choice. Yes, the shipping to HI, something Hawaiians deal with often so it is important to get it right.
Good luck with your new mattress and let us know how it works out once your loved ones have a chance to sleep on it for a while !

Hi Phoenix and Sensei,
I was looking at Sleep on Latex's website and noticed this:
Using an enhanced version of the Dunlop Process, Earthfoam natural latex foam combines the best elements of Dunlop and Talalay latex foam. It has a more lively and consistent feel than other dunlop latex foam without the "bouncy" feel of Talalay Foam. We believe that this produces a product that works better for more people.
Do either of you have any comments about this enhanced process? I wasn't able to find any discussion of it after searching the forum. Thanks.
First off, I have not spoken to SOL or other people who have been to their partner factory and asked specific questions about the Earthfoam Dunlop process. I do have to say that SOL has worked quite extensively setting up their manufacturing, and there is no doubt in my mind that the engineers and chemists in Malaysia have worked to "enhance" this Dunlop process compared to some other Dunlop process.
That said, I have known many of the latex people pretty well from my prior and current experiences, and it is not an easy thing to enhance the quality of the best European and Asian producers, but some investment will lead to incremental improvements over the shall I say, mediocre latex producers. I have no doubt that SOL's Dunlop process is as good if not better than most others.
I also think that SOL is being pretty solid with their marketing language, it's not over the top, IMO. On another point, people can like or dislike Talalay but I have never seen any Dunlop manufacturer that can replicate a soft Talalay topper, regardless of whether the "ILD rating" is the same. If I get more info, I will make a new post discussing this.
