Hamuq Mattress Review
Hamuq is a bed in a box company that is starting to take the mattress industry by storm. Currently they only offer to Canada but are looking to expand to the United States after seeing such demand for this product. Read on for the full hamuq mattress review.
Hamuq’s idea to create a 12” pocket coil mattress that can be shipped directly to your front door in a box is truly amazing. New compression technology allows for Hamuq to compress the pocket coil mattress and roll it tightly into a small and easily manageable box.
With other popular companies such as Casper and Endy (and now Douglas Bed) offering 10” memory foam mattresses, Hamuq has provided an option for people who enjoy the feeling of a heavy duty pocket coil mattress over the full foam mattresses. It appears they’ve managed to cut quite a few of the costs out of traditional mattress purchasing, passing those savings along to you.
The Hamuq queen comes in at $849, while a similar mattress, the Marshall Rest Assured V Radiance set costs $2299, the Simmons BeautyRest Black “Breslin” costs $1899 and the Sealy Hemmingway with worse specs, and no pocket coil system coming in at $1499 (sold at Leons).
Somehow Marshall commands this price sold through Hudsons Bay and being an old company. But for those of us who don’t get sold on fancy showrooms and good sales staff, we see through the fake marketing when we do our research.
Hamuq made a nifty little comparison chart showcasing these two mattresses, alongside a casper and endy. This simple, yet effective charts shows how the wave of online mattress retailers are cutting costs, and how Hamuq compares directly to its big name showroom competitors.
Personally I enjoyed my memory foam mattress that I used in the past but I found that I often felt hot in the middle of the night even with the cooling gel inside.
After reading tons of mattress reviews, and with all the hype I’ve been hearing lately about pocket coil mattresses I decided I would give one a try. I searched online and was surprised to see Hamuq was the only company that offers a pocket coil style mattress in a box. With the 101 night free trial that Hamuq offers I figured why not give the pocket coil a try and if I don’t like it I can always return it and go back to a memory foam mattress.
The Hamuq mattress arrived 3 days after I placed my order via ups and I didn’t even have to leave my house! Safe to say this is a pretty cool new way to buy a mattress!
Now, what’s in the mattress exactly? The Hamuq mattress first off of course has the pocket coil system inside which drastically reduces the motion transfer just like a memory foam mattress would. It is foam encased with strong bio foam around the edges to ensure good edge support all the way around the mattress (something that my memory foam mattress did not have). It then has a thin layer of the same bio foam on top of the pocket coils followed by 2” of soft 1.8 lb bio foam, 1” of soft vls gel foam and a ¾” high density foam quilting on top. This combination of foam layers creates a very comforting pillow top to compliment the stability of the pocket coils.
In terms of firmness, it’s a middle of the scale mattress that I think most people would enjoy. If you are someone who likes a very hard mattress then the Hamuq is definitely not for you. If you are someone who likes a super soft mattress this is also not for you. Although I consider the Hamuq to be on the soft side because of the pillow top, the pocket coils provide a very stable and somewhat firm base.
I’m 3 weeks into my trial and am loving the feeling of this pocket coil mattress compared to the memory foam mattress I used to use. I realize now that the memory foam mattress was making me heat up in the middle of the night even with the cooling gel.
With that said, my switch from a foam mattress to the pocket coil style was a success! I hope you got some good insight from my hamuq mattress review. Cheers.
