Luma Sleep Hybrid Slumber - NRG Response Foam?

28 Nov 2019 09:31 #1 by jhamar
Hello and thank you in advance! Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving!

My wife and I just ordered a new Luma Hybrid Slumber system and are really excited to get it! We chose this combination due to being heavier (she is 220# and I am 290#) and it seems like a good solution to provide support and durability.

My main question is about the NRG Response Foam transition layer. I see from other posts that it is a 3.7# density. What type of foam is it? Is this a memory foam, polyfoam, etc.? What are the properties of this foam that made you choose it? I know reading through the posts on here about mattress materials, they recommended 4# + density for larger BMIs. So just wondering why you chose this foam as the transition layer instead of latex (e.g. Avocado Mattress for instance) and what is the durability of this layer for heavier people? Understand from another post that you needed a transition layer due to the firmer QE comb-zone coils (we chose this for durability).

Anyway, any additional information about this layer would be helpful! Just wanting more information on our new mattress!
