Awara is a 13″ premium hybrid mattress comprised of latex and individually-wrapped coils. They offer free shipping and returns, an entire year of sleep trial and the famous Forever warranty.
As a hybrid mattress, it offers a wonderful combination of support thanks to its innerspring core and comfort thanks to its upper latex layer. It’s made with Dunlop latex instead of Talaylay, which gives it a slight bouncy feel. The Awara would be ideal for whoever wants to reap the benefits of a quality latex hybrid mattress that is durable and comes with a 365 night trial period.
MATERIALS AND CONSTRUCTION
This latex-innerspring hybrid mattress is 13 inches tall, which is appropriate for a luxury mattress. It is comprised of 2 main layers – latex on top and a tall pocketed coil base. The mattress is covered in soft cotton and New Zealand wool. Here’s a deeper look at the specifications:
- Quilted Cotton Cover: The Euro Top cover layer is made of soft and breathable cotton as well as New Zealand wool. The result of this design is better airflow and a cooler sleeping experience.
- 4 Inches Dunlop Latex: This layer serves as the comfort layer, and is made from Dunlop latex. In addition to providing a cradling feel, it also is a source of pressure relief.
- 9 Inches 5-Zone Premium Coil System: The support layer is made of individually-wrapped coils to encourage alignment and support. It is built in a unique 5-zone system, distributes weight evenly, and reduces motion transfer.
- Base Layer: The soft base layer includes four handles that were hand-sewn to both sides of the mattress, making lifting and moving it much easier. The handles lie flat so they won’t be visible under the sheets.
Thanks to its hybrid build, the mattress keeps cool at night. Innersprings allow for great airflow and breathability, and the wool in the cover gives another great cooling touch. This helps the Awara perform better than some other mattresses in the cooling category.
The 5-zoned pocketed coils and the Dunlop latex provide support all around, including the edges. The latex also gives the mattress a better bounce than memory foam, which could be a plus for nightly activities. However, as opposed to all-foam mattresses, there is a very slight loss when it comes to motion transfer.
The Awara mattress is best described as a “luxury firm” mattress. It usually rates as 6.5-7 in the 1-10 firmness scale (with 10 being the firmest). Medium-firm mattresses are the most popular type and are considered to be better for relieving pain than firm mattresses according to recent studies. Thanks to the natural latex, you will not be sinking too much into the mattress. If you’re the kind who enjoys the sinking into the mattress, perhaps you should consider other options.
Lastly, thanks to its natural materials rather than memory foam, off-gassing is not an issue with this mattress.
The quilted cover of this mattress is made out of a combination of breathable soft cotton and temperature-regulating wool. The New Zealand wool also features moisture-wicking properties to keep you cool at night.
Awara has one of the industry’s best trial periods, with an extremely generous 365-night trial. That’s a whole year for using the mattress while being eligible for getting your money back. They also offer one of the best warranties in the industry – the Forever Warranty.
The best feature of this mattress is its high-quality build and construction. Hybrid innerspring-latex mattresses are highly regarded in the mattress world, thanks to the combination of the innerspring feel with the latex’s comfort and pressure relief.
