About Bear mattresses

Bear mattresses come in two models: the original Bear Mattress and the Bear Hybrid. The Bear Mattress is a memory foam mattress, and the Bear Hybrid is made of memory foam with innerspring coils. Both mattresses are classified as medium firm on the firmness scale. The Bear mattress return policy lets customers try out a mattress for 100 nights before deciding if they want to keep it or have it picked up and returned, free of charge. Bear mattress reviews mention cooling properties and comfortable nights of sleep.

Bear mattress comfort

Both models from Bear serve up a comfortable night’s sleep, but they offer different benefits. Graphite gel and a Celliant cover in the Bear Mattress combine powers to keep users cool. The Hybrid mattress has five layers that together provide stability and comfort. A Celliant cover also keeps this model cool. The coil system in the hybrid provides support, including near the edges of the mattress.

  • Firmness: Both the Bear Mattress and Bear Hybrid are medium firm. This firmness level is ideal for back sleepers.
  • Sleeping position: Both mattresses offer good or very good support for back sleepers. Side sleepers on the Bear Mattress also get good support. Stomach sleepers on the Bear Hybrid might have more issues sleeping comfortably. Side sleepers on the hybrid and stomach sleepers on the Bear will have average comfort.
  • Motion transfer: The Bear Mattress is excellent at absorbing motion. The Bear Hybrid isn’t quite as good but still absorbs motion very well.
  • Edge support: Neither mattress offered by Bear has excellent edge support. The Bear Hybrid mattress has the better edge support of the two, however.
  • Sleeping hot: Cool graphite gel in the Bear Mattress helps keep sleepers from getting too warm during the night. The Hybrid mattress is even cooler since the innersprings trap less heat. Each Bear mattress cover has Celliant technology to keep sleepers cool.

Bear mattress prices

The pricing on Bear mattresses is straightforward. The original Bear mattress is the more affordable option and the Bear Hybrid costs more. Each is available in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, and California King sizes. Pricing is competitive when compared to similar models and brands.

Are Bear mattresses good?

Bear mattresses are good, particularly for those who like all-foam or hybrid mattresses. Bear mattresses are affordably priced, especially when compared to mattresses of similar quality. Back sleepers who enjoy medium firm mattresses will be the biggest fans of Bear mattresses, but they can work well for anyone.

I've owned a Bear mattress for about 4 years now. Since then, the quality of the mattress has declined significantly in all facets. This includes the cover falling apart where the threading has loosened and holes form (on the sides and bottom) even with minimal adjusting/movement, mattress sags in the middle/sides and doesn't return back to its original shape, etc.

My biggest gripe was the customer service aspect of it. I texted, emailed, and called over a year and a half span after reporting the issues with my mattress. Somewhere around the six month time frame, they finally got back to me and said they'd send me a cover and ignored the other issues I had with the mattress. It's going on two years now, I've texted/emailed them back a good four times and they keep saying that the cover was lost in the mail and they'd ship another one but nothing ever came. I gave up and am just going to toss the mattress and look at other options that are more improved than what Bear is providing. Once you buy with them, you are no longer a priority or a concern unless you're buying something else from Bear. I'd pass buying with them when there are other better options out there who provide a warranty/customer service they stand behind.

After we purchased a mattress, we found out the hard way, that the only ways to exchange a mattress is to purchase a new one and get reimbursed or to let them pick up the old mattress and wait for a refund, then order all over again, meaning upwards of 3 weeks without a bed.

    My husband and I are very different sizes, so decided to try a "split king" mattress which is actually two twin XL. He loved his, and mine was a bit too firm for me. I tried it out for 90 days, and it just didnt work. I do love the Celliant fibers though. You think this is a gimmick, but it truly does make my muscles feel all tingly and I swear helps recovery after a workout. The return process was a dream and the person (yep - a real person answered my call) I dealt with was lovely and easy.

    So I bought this thinking I would get a better mattress since I was paying so much more for it. I slept ok for the first few weeks. After about 99 nights it became evident that my back pain was increasing. I had 100 nights warranty. Since then I sleep on my couch because it's just way more comfy. I will buy an Ashley hybrid next time for half what I paid... $1000 is what Bear mattress stole from me.

    Softness is the main thing when looking for a mattress, if I get this from a mattress I will surely buy it because I've had sleeping disorders over the past years and it is because I was laying in a mattress made of stone I guess. The Bear mattress has given me the comfort I need while sleeping and I haven't experienced any sleeping disorder in the past and it has been the brand I've been using for a long time. But I would improve the material that's been used along the years to make a mattress. Nevertheless it is not an urgent matter to me but it is surely something I wish mattresses companies improve.

    At the time when my girlfriend and I tried it out, it seemed very comfortable. Also it was on sale and fit my needs and my girlfriend at the time liked it. It's very form fitting and quite soft and comfortable. But it took a while to get used to it because it was a bit too soft for my liking. Also, it's getting a bit old and we could use a new one. But it has always been able to help me and my lover get a good night's sleep.

    It made it out to be something very different and much more useful than what I had before. It offered a way to make it into being something very much better and more comfy than what I was use to as well. Plus, it had the best price and the set up to me seemed to be very easy and different from what we had been use to seeing. But the size and color was not the best. It needed something to me that makes it more better for all. It needed to be sent a bit faster as well compared to times I have had before.

    One of the most important aspects of this mattress is its ability to relieve pressure. The pressure points can be formed while lying on a mattress causing pain and discomfort for the sleeper, this is not a problem with this mattress. With some mattresses, you may notice a strong chemical smell when you initially unbox, and this can be bothersome. However, this did not last long, but they should improve this, the smell makes it seem of poor quality. Other than that, the cover is very soft and thin to help with breathability. The thing that sets the Bear mattress cover apart is that it is made with a material unique. Bear used Celliant (material) to aid in recovery by turning body heat into infrared light which in turn would improve blood flow for increased oxygen circulation and temperature regulation, this is amazing and unique.

    The reviews are all very positive and it seems to be better made with more comfort than other brands I had compared them to online. The gel infused memory foam does a great job at regulating my body temperature. I like that the mattress is made to improve blood flow and does a good job of keeping the person from overheating. It's very comfortable and is well made and suited for anyone who has back problems or someone who just finished physical therapy or has a tough time sleeping. I like that it is memory foam and making it easy to move around while laying down. The material of the cover is made of Celliant which helps one lead a more active lifestyle with less aches and pains.
