The Sedona Hybrid is touted by Brooklyn Bedding as a mattress that “offers the kind of insanely comfortable slumber you can typically only get at a five-star hotel, now delivered directly to the comfort of your own home.” As lofty as that may sound, the brand actually delivers on a luxury sleep experience. A combination of both quick and slow response foams, paired with a proprietary coil system, accounts for a dreamy level of contouring while still managing to provide just the right amount of firmness. Topping off the benefits, literally, are cooling yarns on the surface panel that provide for exceptional temperature moderation. Like all Brooklyn Bedding mattresses, the bed is handcrafted in Arizona (home to the Sedona resort lifestyle) and shipped to the consumer at a factory direct price. With a starting point of $1,249 the Sedona is most certainly an investment—at the same time, it’s more than fairly priced when compared to similar beds on the market. We categorize this mattress as indulgent, but worth it.
Everyone knows that mattresses sold standard with RVs or campers are terrible. Anyone serious about sleeping must upgrade their mattress sooner rather than later. What could be more perfect in that case then finding a mattress that’s not only affordable but made in the U.S.A.—by a company that prides itself on custom crafting each and every mattress to your specifications? We’ve long known Brooklyn Bedding as the pioneer of the bed-in-a-box and the anti-one-size-fits-all. They’ve managed to not only offer their bestselling mattresses in RV sizes now, but also deliver an extremely comfortable sleep, starting at $149. The Brooklyn Wanderlust is the brand’s memory foam solution to road warrior’s woes: ticking all our boxes in contouring, support and even cooling at a very affordable price. It’s a dream come true in every size imaginable—from shorter kings and queens to every bunk bed specification known to families everywhere. We call it the “2022 RV Mattress of the Year.” You call it the equivalent to sleeping in an actual bed at home. You’re welcome.
The EcoSleep Hybrid Mattress is a top eco-friendly option, featuring mattress materials that are GOTS and Rainforest Alliance certified—which is why it wins the award for Best Natural Latex Mattress. The Ecosleep Hybrid features two sleep systems—100 percent latex foam, paired with recyclable, individually encased coils for maximum comfort and support. The mattress cover is also constructed with sustainably sourced Joma™ Wool and organic cotton. This double-sided mattress, featuring a different firmness level on each side, is handcrafted in the U.S.A and provides a thoroughly natural, more customizable way to sleep.
How does Brooklyn Bedding improve on their signature line, superlatively named the #BestMattressEver? By infusing recently acquired cooling technology into trademark comfort and support. The company touts the Brooklyn Aurora as “luxury at a cool price.” Owner John Merwin’s vision of end to end manufacturing—allowing him to control both quality and pass through costs while adjusting quickly to customer feedback—shines in this mattress. Brooklyn Bedding uses a patented surface infusion called TitanCool™ in the top comfort layer to moderate body temperature during sleep. The cooling effect is enhanced by a high end, smooth top knit that allows for increased air flow, bringing the sleeper in closer contact with the cooling technology. Sleep disturbance is practically non-existent due to over 1,000 individually pocketed coils that make up a reactive but highly durable base. The unsung hero of this mattress may be the transition layer which features many of the contouring attributes that make memory foam so popular (including deep compression support) but offers all the responsiveness of a hybrid bed. The price tag for luxury is indeed a cool $1699 for a queen size mattress, nearly half the cost of competing beds with similar technology. In this case, end to end manufacturing accounts for its affordability.
The Brooklyn Signature (also known as the #BestMattressEver) wins the category for Best Value for packing a whole lot of quality construction into one mattress at such an attainable price point. Brooklyn Bedding uses several patented materials, combining the industry favorite Energex™ with a TitaniumGel™ infusion to create responsiveness, comfort and a cooler night’s sleep. The bed is slightly firmer than most with the majority of customers opting for medium – a safe bet for every sleep position. The Brooklyn Signature starts at $599 for a twin and offers sizing up to a California Split King, making it an ideal mattress for kids, guests and buyers seeking an affordable option that’s customizable. Mattresses are shipped nationwide as a bed-in-a-box, which provided added entertainment value at my house. As one reviewer put it, “It gets to your house in a box, rolled like a burrito, unpack it and voila... It is like it comes to life.” You can’t put a price tag on that.
The Titan mattress is one of the only mattresses in the market that caters to plus size people. It is designed with substantial support by pairing two layers of the highest quality foams with heavy duty, premium coils. The Titan delivers extra lift and extra durability for the life of the mattress. It is also handcrafted in the U.S.A., with a 10-year warranty and 120-night trial. Customers praise this mattress for its unique firmness and excellent support—a must-have if you weigh 250 pounds or more.
The Plank wins the category for Best Firm Mattress due to its flippable support: one side is firm and the other is extra-firm. It's basically the equivalent of sleeping on the floor with only a thin duvet for cushion. Engineered to reduce pressure on your circulatory system, this mattress provides for better blood flow—and better lower back support, compelling you to inhale more oxygen while you snooze. The Plank is handcrafted in the U.S.A., with a 10-year warranty and 120-night trial. It is perfect for sleepers who can never find a mattress that is firm enough.
This mattress wins Best Mattress for Extreme Recovery (hello, all you athletes and wanna be athletes out there) due to its pairing of elite performance fabric with Far Infrared Rays technology and a patented advanced cooling technology, called TitanCool™. The Spartan helps you reset and rejuvenate quicker by harnessing and recycling the body's natural energy throughout the sleep cycle. We put this mattress in the category of elite hybrids, given its combination of two sleep systems as well as technology. One customer raved: "It's like a whole new me, back pain is all gone and I feel better and better every day".
The Bloom Hybrid is in a class all by itself when it comes to a more natural, healthier sleep—the culmination of superior pressure point relief plus the unique buoyancy found in Oeko-Tex Class 1 certified Talalay latex. Combining a premium Euro top, constructed of Joma Wool™ and organic cotton, with a dense layer of Talalay comfort latex and up to 1,189 individually encased coils, the Bloom Hybrid offers seven times more breathability than other latex beds. This mattress is offered in three firmness levels, handcrafted in the U.S.A., and shipped in a box directly to your door.
Starting at just $549, the Bowery Hybrid wins honors as the Best Budget Mattress. The Brooklyn Bowery Hybrid combines the targeted pressure point relief of individually encased coils with the contouring comfort of quilted gel memory foam in a hybrid mattress that's exceptionally priced. Optimal cooling in the top layer and open cell technology in the transition layer ensure greater breathability, resulting in a temperature neutral night's sleep. This mattress is definitely one of the best sleeps for your buck.
As its name implies, the Arctic Dreams Cooling Gel Mattress is designed for a cooler night’s sleep. In addition to an arctic gel infusion, the cooling effect is enhanced by a top layer of breathable foam, allowing air to circulate throughout the sleep experience. The bed is incredibly comfortable, resembling a premium mattress but at a far more affordable price than comparable construction on the market. We attribute the pressure point relief and responsiveness to the second foam layer, which comes in three variations of 2”, 2.5”, or 3” Energex™ and also accounts for less sleep disturbance. We found the 10” mattress (with the 2.5” Energex™ layer) to be ideal for a sleeper looking for a medium softness mattress with plenty of support.
