Overview

The Avocado mattress is a new hybrid model built with both innerspring coils and multiple latex layers.

Some of the key strengths of the Avocado mattress include:

  • Quality specifications: by all indications, the Avocado mattress has had a lot of emphasis placed on materials quality. It includes latex foams with a good level of density and ILD, and well-designed innerspring coils.
  • Hybrid construction: many sleepers find that a hybrid model that combines different components, including foam and innerspring coils, provides the most balanced and supportive night’s sleep. This type of hybrid construction, in particular, should help create both support and bounce from the mattress.

Potential drawbacks for the Avocado mattress include:

  • Limited track record: the Avocado mattress is very new to the market, and because of this, there is very little customer data or long-term results that we can use to evaluate its performance or durability.
  • Delivery lag time: after an order is placed, it takes 2-3 weeks to receive an Avocado mattress. For people who need a new mattress as soon as possible, this could be a major issue.

Mattress Performance

In combining zoned innerspring coils and Dunlop latex — both with high-quality materials — the Avocado mattress has the potential to offer many excellent features.

Support

Hybrid mattresses can offer quality support through their combination of a solid base and a comfortable top layer. The Avocado mattress creates a solid base with an 8” innerspring layer and then uses a medium-firm latex to provide more tailored support. While latex has less of a contouring feel than memory foam, most sleepers find that it has sufficient responsiveness to eliminate the body’s pressure points.

Durability

The Avocado mattress does not have a long enough track record to be able to know how well it will last over the long term, especially with regular use. However, all indications are that it is made with high-quality materials that should enhance its durability.

Firmness

Two firmness options are available. The standard Avocado mattress is a 6-7 on the typical firmness scale. The pillowtop version, which has an extra 2” of medium-soft latex in the comfort layer, is more of a 5-6. However, the pillowtop model costs an additional $300, which may be a deterrent for people who want a softer mattress.

Motion Transfer

Because latex and innerspring coils both have more bounce than traditional memory foam, there can be slightly more motion transfer from one part of the bed to another. That said, the zoned coils can help to reduce this effect, and overall, most sleepers find that latex offers enough motion isolation to prevent major sleep disruptions from a partner’s movements.

Offgassing

The Avocado mattress does not include the types of foams that are most commonly-associated with offgassing or odors, so this should not be a significant issue.

Sleeping Hot

Because of the resilience of both latex and innerspring coils, there is less risk of sinking too deeply into the mattress and having issues with heat retention. As a result, sleeping hot is unlikely to be a problem on the Avocado mattress.

Intimacy

Latex and innerspring components are associated with more bounce and easier movement in bed, which helps to facilitate sexual activity, especially relative to traditional memory foam mattresses.
