Bear Mattress: Three Options That Promote Wellness and Deep Sleep, Delivering Restorative Rest

We reviewed the Bear Mattress lineup early on when the company offered only one mattress. Because they use some unique components that other companies don’t have, and the huge fan base the company has created, their mattress program now includes three mattresses that we want to discuss on this page.

Far infrared radiation has been shown to effectively heal the body heat from a host of ailments, promoting wellness, and encouraging deeper, restorative REM sleep.

Bear Mattress is the only mattress company we’ve reviewed that uses a specialized fabric on the outer covering of all three of their models, which converts body heat fo far infrared heat, which increases blood flow, in turn removing toxins from your bloodstream.

Far infrared heat reduces and relieves muscle spasms, making Bear Mattress options sought after by performance athletes and those needing improved circulation for many medical conditions.

This infrared energy is reflected back at the body, which is intended to trigger oxygenation and vasodilation in the body. The fiber reflects this energy in the form of FIR back towards the body, where the skin and muscle tissue can absorb it. All three models we discuss below include the fabric as an outer encasement material.

If you are looking for a memory foam mattress option and like the pressure relieving qualities they offer, The Bear lineup has three options that focus on pain relief, effective weight distribution, and are ideal for couples as well as those with shoulder, neck, and back pain.

I’ve reviewed and tested all three Bear Mattress products, and encourage readers to check them out. Backed up with a ten year factory warranty, and a no questions asked 100 night trial in the event you don’t love your mattress, your purchase also includes a set of their own Bear pillows (which are great, not lumpy or too soft) as well as a nice set of sheets.

The sheets alone are probably worth $150-200. Bear’s sheets are made from a blend of cotton and Celliant-infused polyester. They are a 400 thread count and a sateen weave which is intended to offer a feel that’s soft, durable, and super smooth.

1. The Bear Original 10″ Mattress: Under $800, And Super Comfy

The Bear Original 10″ Mattress is a gel foam/memory foam mattress that is designed to sleep cooler than conventional memory foam. It sells for $799 in queen, and includes a free set of pillows and sheets.
The graphite infused gel/memory foam and transitional layers of foam remove unwanted body heat, relieve pressure, and adapts easier to your body shape- reducing pinpoint pressure at hips and shoulders.

Overall, I rated the Bear Original 10″ Mattress as 4.6 out of 5 stars, which is a fairly high rating for a mattress priced under $800. I found it to be supportive enough, but liked the way it relieved pressure in my hip area and shoulder, damaged after decades of tennis and running. Plus, the pillows and sheet set they include are super nice, not a promotional, thinner type sheet or lumpy pillows.

In addition, The Bear Original Mattress is GREENGUARD Gold Certified by UL for low emissions, including VOC’s, formaldehyde and phthalates. Formaldehyde is typically used in solvent based adhesives by many manufacturers. Bear uses a water based adhesive, according to an inside source where Bear does product assembly.

But what makes the Bear Original 10″ Mattress any different than other memory foam or gel foam mattresses that are built the same way? Well, the cost, at $799, for one thing. Considering the use of upgraded, higher density gel foam and the exterior covering, which is something called “hand quilted Celliant

2. The Bear Pro 12″ Mattress: A Mattress That Is Self-Sanitizing And Calms Hot Sleepers

The Bear Pro 12″ Mattress features a copper infused foam layer which reduces bacteria by naturally sanitizing your mattress. It has the same memory/gel foam layers as the Original, as well as the highly breathable Celliant outer fabric.
I tend to recommend memory foam mattresses that are at least 12″ tall if you weigh 185 lbs or more, and sleep with a partner. The Bear Pro 12″, priced at $1099, including free sheets and pillows, is a pretty good deal considering the higher end materials that are used.

The Bear Pro 12″ Mattress is essentially, what I call a performance mattress, because it has more than 5″ of components strictly dedicated to comfort and not acting as support layers. The copper infused memory foam laminated to the thicker layer of 2″ memory foam deliver on better pressure relief at hips and shoulders, first off.

Also, the company uses a transitional layer that is slightly more supportive than typical, meaning you won’t bottom into it, even if you are with a partner and you both end up in the middle of the mattress most of the night. I give it a solid 4.8 out of 5 stars, which puts in my “favorites” category.

Remember, too, I’ve designed and manufactured dozens of my own memory foam mattresses though the years, and I know the recipes and formulations for almost all of this stuff. Considering you get a free sheet set along with a pair of their gel foam pillows, it’s a sweet price at $1099 for the complete package, including 100 night trial and 10 year top to bottom warranty. I would rate their phone crew and customer service a solid 10/10, too!

3. The Bear Luxury Hybrid 14″ Mattress

The Bear Luxury Hybrid 14″ Mattress offers the pressure relieving qualities of gel memory foam that is carefully calibrated to fill nooks and crannies to support muscle groups.. The exterior covering is made from Celliant® fiber,

Beneath that layer, another layer of transition foam helps to dampen motion and distribute the pressure relieving and supportive qualities of the Quantum Edge coil system all the way to the outer edge of the mattress to provide optimal uplift and buoyancy without a sensation of being buried inside the mattress.

Pocketed Coils That Lift, Cradle, And Make Turning And Getting In And Out Of Bed Easier

The Quantum Edge Coil System is made by a company in the United States called Leggett & Platt, and is a proven winner for mattresses employing best in class individual pocketed coil designs. They used recycled steel in their construction, too, which we really like.

The Bear Hybrid mattress is Greenguard Gold Certified by UL for producing low emissions from dangerous materials often found in bedding products. Its scientifically proven to meet some of the world’s most rigorous, third-party emissions standards for chemical exposure and pollutants, such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), formaldehyde and phthalates.

The Bear Hybrid mattress is backed up with solid reviews, too, which was instrumental in considering them as one of most highly recommended hybrid mattresses (mattresses containing a combination of foam, coil systems, and other components).

Buying A Bear Hybrid 14″ Mattress is not an overwhelming investment that you will second guess either. At just $1390 for a queen model (using our special factory direct link you’ll also get two free pillows, too), you get a 100 night risk free, no questions asked trial, free shipping and free returns, Bear’s solid 20 year factory warranty, and a solid 4.6 star rating out of 898 confirmed third party reviews.

The Bear Hybrid mattress is 14” tall and offers a sumptuous, cloud like feel. This luxury hybrid mattress is the only mattress in its class to come equipped with Celliant fiber technology that oxygenates your body, improves blood flow, enhances performance, delivers restorative rest, and optimizes health.

For the money and features/benefits included, The Bear Hybrid Mattress is a great choice for couples, heavier folks, and anyone needing a mattress with great edge support. Along the outer edges of the mattress, the coils are intentionally made tighter and firmer, to support body weight and making transfer in and out of bed easier.

For athletes, taking shoes on and off, and even changing, is easier, and it’s worth the investment. At $1299 for a queen, you will also get a free sheet set and a free set of pillows, too.
