Bear Mattress Review

The House Method team researches, reviews, and recommends a number of services, including pest control services. Affiliate disclosure.

The Bear mattress is engineered for optimal cooling, comfort, and muscle recovery, making it our top choice for athletes. In fact, we’ve given it one of our highest mattress ratings on account of their meticulous attention to detail.

The Bear mattress, from top to bottom:

  • One 1.5-inch layer of graphite-infused polyfoam built for maximum temperature control and airflow for cooler sleep
  • Two 1-inch middle layers made of a proprietary polyfoam build to enhance pressure relief
  • One 6.5-inch base layer of dense polyfoam

All of these layers come wrapped in their Celliant cover. According to Bear’s website, “This specialized, one-of-a-kind cover absorbs the body’s natural heat and reflects far infrared light back to the skin helping your body recover faster and sleep better.”

The Celliant cover is intended to infuse infrared energy into your nightly sleep and “boosts the flow of blood to tissue throughout the body, which delivers vital nutrients while increasing oxygen levels. Increased circulation nourishes the cells with higher levels of oxygen—further promoting cell health.” It does this by activating your body’s natural heat and then reflecting it back as infrared energy. According to Bear, Celliant is “a common tool used to reduce inflammation and help the body recover faster. [Its] efficacy is not hindered by sheets, clothing, or other waterproof/laminated fabrics.”

Bear also offers a luxury hybrid mattress with springs, foam, and Celliant technology. The Bear Hybrid is designed to offer a luxurious, traditional mattress feel and is designed for all sleeper types. It comes in a queen, king, and California king size.

Bear mattress reviews

To determine if the Bear mattress is right for you, check out a couple of Bear mattress reviews by recent customers (reviews pulled from the Bear website).

“I’ve been struggling with poor quality sleep for about three years. I tried every remedy I could find from herbal teas to supplements. Nothing helped me get better sleep, that is until I slept on my new Bear mattress. From night one I loved this super comfortable mattress. Beginning night three I noticed that I was getting to sleep faster and staying asleep for hours at a time – a huge feat for me!
