Main Features of Brentwood Home Bamboo Mattress Gel 13″
Made in the USA
Brentwood Home Bamboo Mattress Gel 13 is proudly made in the United States, conforming to the CertiPUR-US standards. US-made mattresses are more trustable than foreign ones because they meet all the US standards strictly, using organic, nontoxic and natural materials in the manufacturing process. The foreign made mattresses tend to be of poorer quality and easy to break down.
Medium feel, suitable for all sleepers
This mattress provides a medium feel and all kinds of sleepers can sleep well on it. It’s soft enough for side sleepers, but not too soft, firm enough for stomach sleepers, but not too firm. If you prefer a much firmer mattress, the 11-inch would be a better choice. For body weight, it fits for both heavy person and light person. It’s perfect for a couple, too.
The 2” airlux ventilated layer lets the air inside the mattress circulate. This can prevent sleepers from heating up. The infused gel in the top 3.5” gel memory foam can not only provide body conforming comfort but also help sleepers to keep cool in hot summer.
Pressure relief, no motion transfer and no noise
Like other memory foam mattresses, this 13” mattress can dampen motion delivery and alleviate pressure points on your shoulders, neck, hips and other joints. Once you lay on it, you sink a little, the gel memory foam gently wraps you and gives a sleep-on-a-cloud-like feel and keep your spine in alignment. There is no noise, so you might not notice your partner’s getting up in the middle of the night, a good plus for light sleepers. One more thing to mention, it might take you one week to break in. After you go through this period, you might not toss and turn as frequently as before and enjoy a good night’s sleep and a refreshed morning.

Drawbacks of Brentwood Home Bamboo Mattress Gel 13″
Two overweight persons might roll together
If the husband and the wife are both overweight, they might roll into the center of the mattress. One person large and the other small or of average weight, it can work well. For a person weighs over 300 lbs, he/she might sink more into the mattress than average person. Bamboo Gel 13 can hold their weight and they won’t have a bottoming out feel.
Memory foam mattress cannot be that bouncy as spring mattress does. Kids won’t feel the same jumping on this mattress, there is no bounce at all.
If you have a sensitive nose, you might smell a new paint odor when first open it. But this is not a big problem, it will go away in a few hours or days if you keep your room ventilated, with windows or a van opened.
