Red Nomad 10″ Luxury Memory Foam Mattress
2.5lb memory foam mattress is hard to find as 7.5lb and most manufacturers are using 3lb or denser foam as top layer. Red Nomad 10″ Luxury Memory Foam Mattress is the first one I’ve seen using lower density foam than 3lb. The usual idea about foam mattress is the denser the better. I thought 2.5lb Red Nomad 10″ memory foam mattress wasn’t a good choice but owner reviews told the opposite. On Amazon over 140 customers left their personal experience and reviews and the overwhelming majority are positive. For a such a low density foam, it’s a excellent result. Here I’m going to dig deep to find out why owners like it and what downside they don’t write in reviews.
Features of Red Nomad 10″ Luxury Memory Foam Mattress
The lowest price is one of main factors that trigger customers to buy Red Nomad 10″ memory foam mattress, even when they don’t feel it. Such a great price can be attributed to 2.5lb foam and being made in China. Low density foam costs less than high density. Mattresses imported from China are making full use of China cheap labour to cut production cost.
How does it feel?
For a memory foam mattress, the foam density is core and decides performance at most aspects including how it feels. 2.5lb foam makes Red Nomad 10″ mattress not overly firm, maybe very soft for big guys. So very few owners gripe by saying something like it’s hard as a rock. But if you are expecting to get contouring feeling on it, you could be disappointed. 2.5lb foam doesn’t melt as denser foam and when you are lying in the bed you probably feel “it’s a standard bed.”
Some people may think 2.5lb Red Nomad 10″ mattress doesn’t do well to back pain relief as high density foam. On the contrary, owners are very satisfied with its performance on easing pain.The fact is all memory foam mattresses are helpful for back pain and the gap is not that big between low density and high density. For the price, I don’t expect Red Nomad 10″ mattress lasting longer than expensive models and considering the included 25 year warranty, its durability will not be a big deal.
Two issues you may worry about
Thanks to 2.5lb foam, it’s not temperature sensitive and doesn’t retain excessive body warmth when you’re sleeping. The sleeping hot issue often happens on 5lb or higher density foam. Another thing people care more when buying a foam mattress is offgassing. Red Nomad 10″ mattress passed the test of CertiPUR-US®. CertiPUR-US is a program with strict requirement and high standard for foam mattress examination about emission, longevity, etc. Generally speaking, CertiPUR-US® certified mattress gives off less gas. Most owners mentioned they didn’t detect any smell when they set the mattress up.
