Sleep Innovations Sage 8-inch Gel Memory Foam Mattress Review
Sleep Innovations Sage 8-inch gel memory foam mattress is a gel model launched in August 2015. Sage is a very simple and average mattress with 2-inch gel infused memory foam and 6-inch support foam. Sleep Innovations is using gel foam to give those who feel hot on old SureTemp models a cooler sleep experience. Sage is very cheap and anyone who needs a new mattress can afford it. But low price doesn’t mean low quality and it’s made in the USA. It’s hard to find such a low price US made mattress today when all brands import from China. It’s high cost effective choice for people looking for reliable and affordable mattress. No mattress is for all. If you like a softer feel, this one will make you disappointed as it’s a firm mattress. Like other Sleep Innovations, Sage has a 20 year limited warranty covering 1.5-inch visible sag. Following paragraphs will let you know more details.
Sleep Innovations Sage 8-inch Gel Memory Foam Mattress Features
Firmness grade: 8 (1-10 softest to firmest)
The dominant gene of all Sleep Innovations mattresses is they all are on the firm side, not medium firm known in the description. Sage like some other SI models is very firm. It also cocoons your body but in a very slight sense. To a certain extent, we could say firmer mattress lasts longer than softer ones. Besides, firm mattress provides stable support and keeps your spine in a natural shape. But as we said before, if you don’t like firm bed, Sage isn’t a good choice.
Does gel foam work?
Sage 8-inch mattress has 2-inch gel foam sitting on top. That being said, it doesn’t hold too much heat like standard memory foam mattress and doesn’t feel overheating. Gel foam also makes Sage feel firmer and bounce back faster to flatten out when you change positions. Gel memory foam can make some people feel cooler, not overly warm exactly. It’s not air conditioner or refrigerator that can cool something but reduce body heat trapping between your body and the mattress. It’s an improvement not ultimate solution to memory foam heat issue. If you produce heat more than average persons and feel hot on traditional spring mattress, you’re more likely to feel hot on this too.
US high quality product
Made in the USA is another excellent family gene of Sleep Innovations. You know what US made is meaning, high standards, high quality, safety and reliability. If you do some research, you will easily find those Chinese foam brands filled with many complaints about durability or sags. They have poor quality control and durability. Although the mattress is so cheap, we still hope it can last for several years not break down in a year or a few months. Sage 8-inch costs a little more than those brands but still very cheap and reasonable. I suggest you always choose US made mattress first.
Sleep Innovations Sage 8-inch is an economical option for small apartment, youth bedroom or guestroom. It’s cheap and not breaking your bank. It’s not that type of comfortable mattress making you feel floating on the cloud but give you a comfortable sleep. When you have friends visit and stay, Sage 8-inch is good enough to give them a comfy night.
This mattress isn’t well suited for heavy persons as it’s thin and only has 6-inch support foam. It can’t provide enough support for people of above average build and they may sink in too much and bottom out.
You need to know something about warranty
The warranty length is 20 years which sounds very good. But during the period, all fees are at customer cost including transportation cost to and from Sleep Innovations factory. You also need a waterproof cover to protect the mattress and the cover it comes with from staining and water. The mattress needs to be placed on flat and solid foundation excluding your floor. Like other brands, it only covers visible sag depth more than 1.5 inches. The normal increase of softness isn’t cover by warranty.
Sleep Innovations Sage 8-inch Gel Memory Foam Mattress Downsides
The whole line of Sleep Innovations often receives owner complaints about firmness. They feel very firm on an uncomfortable level and it’s hardly to sink in. A few Sage owners have the problem too. If you feel too hard, get a topper and you will find the mattress is a heaven.
