Quick Overview

Avocado is a U.S.-based mattress manufacturer specializing in beds made from eco-conscious and natural materials. Currently, the brand offers two models:

  • The Avocado Green is a latex hybrid. It is constructed with 100% GOTS organic wool and natural Dunlop latex comfort layers, as well as latex and pocketed coil layers in the support core. The standard Avocado Green measures 11″ thick and is considered ‘Medium Firm,’ or a 6.5 on the 1-10 firmness scale. The mattress is also available with an optional latex pillow-top, which adds two inches to the profile and reduces the firmness to ‘Medium’ (5).
  • The Avocado Vegan shares the same primary construction as the Avocado Green, but with one key difference: the GOTS-certified organic wool in the comfort layer is swapped with 100% GOTS organic cotton, meaning the mattress is certified as 100% vegan and does not contain any animal-based components or byproducts. It is also available in 11″ non-pillow top and 13″ pillow-top designs with ‘Medium Firm’ (6.5) and ‘Medium’ (5) feels, respectively.

Both Avocado mattresses are constructed from certified natural and organic materials, making it a great choice for eco-conscious shoppers. The materials also offer natural durability, giving the mattresses fairly long lifespans, as well as consistent temperature regulation that results in cool, comfortable sleep for most. The pillow-top model conforms very closely, making it ideal for side and back sleepers who weigh up to 230 pounds, while the non-pillow-top version does not conform as much and is most suitable for heavier back and stomach sleepers.

Avocado mattresses have below-average price-points compared to other hybrids made from organic and natural materials. Avocado also offers free delivery to all 50 states. Both the Avocado Green and Avocado Vegan mattresses are backed by 365-night sleep trials and 25-year warranties.

Sleep Rating

Durability
Very Good

Latex is highly durable. Because the Avocado Green substitutes polyfoam with latex in the comfort layer, the mattress has a longer-than-average projected lifespan especially coupled with very low gauge (firm) coils in the support core

Motion Isolation
Good

Being a very firm hybrid (almost an innerspring), the Avocado will transfer motion more than all foam and other mattress builds.

Conforming
Good

The low-ILD latex used in the comfort layer of the Avocado mattress offers fairly close conforming, which some owners say helps alleviate pain and pressure in sensitive areas of their bodies.

Sex
Good

The soft latex surface of an Avocado Green mattress may not be responsive or bouncy enough for some couples, despite the thick pocketed coil layer.

Temperature Neutrality
Very Good

The Avocado will sleep cooler than most given it's mostly innerspring construction coupled with latex which is great for tempurature regulation.

Off-gassing
Very Good

The Avocado Green does not emit any off-gassing smells. Some natural odors may be present, but they tend to dissipate within a few days.

Edge Support
Very Good

Even by hybrid standards, Avocado mattresses offer above-average edge support, largely due to the thick pocketed coil layer and high-ILD latex layers in the support core.

Noise
Good

Some Avocado owners report squeaking and creaking noises when the mattress is bearing weight.

Sleep Rating

Durability
Very Good

Because it is crafted from organic cotton and Dunlop latex – both naturally durable materials – the Avocado Vegan Mattress has an expected lifespan of at least 7-8 years.

Motion Isolation
Good

The pillow-top version of the Avocado Vegan Mattress absorbs and isolates more motion transfer than the non-pillow-top model.

Conforming
Good

The pillow-top Avocado Vegan Mattress offers a 'Medium' feel with close conforming, while the non-pillow-top bed is firmer and does not conform as closely.

Sex
Good

The Avocado Vegan Mattress is fairly responsive without the pillow-top, but the pillow-top model may not be springy enough for some couples.

Temperature Neutrality
Very Good

Breathable cotton and latex layers allow the Avocado Vegan Mattress to sleep very cool, even by latex hybrid standards.

Off-gassing
Very Good

The Avocado Vegan Mattress emit some natural odor when new, but the smells clear out very quickly and no chemical off-gassing odors are present.

Edge Support
Very Good

Thanks to its multiple latex layers and dense pocketed coils, the Avocado Vegan Mattress provides strong, resilient edge support.

Noise
Good

The Avocado Vegan Mattress may creak on occasion, but overall it is much quieter than most competing hybrids.

The Avocado Green and Avocado Vegan mattresses offer very similar sleep experiences. Models with pillow-top covers have ‘Medium’ feels, making them ideal for side and back sleepers weighing between 130 and 230 pounds. Non-pillow-top models have a firmer feel, and are more suitable for heavier people – particularly back and stomach sleepers.

Our testing process found Avocado mattresses should also be great for you if…

  • You are an eco-conscious shopper who wants to buy a mattress made from natural and organic materials
  • You tend to sleep hot
  • You and/or your sleep partner awaken easily due to movement or noise
  • You prefer beds with thicker-than-average profiles

  1. The sleep trial begins on the date of delivery.
  2. There is no mandatory break-in period. Customers may opt to return their mattress at any point during the 100-night trial in exchange for a product refund.
  3. Avocado will cover all costs associated with mattress returns. The company will send a service partner to transport the mattress to a recycling facility or donate it to charity.
  4. Mattress refunds will be issued after Avocado receives the mattress in good condition for recycling or donation, or after the donation has been verified.
  5. Avocado’s sleep trial is limited to one mattress per household.

Warranty

Avocado offers a 25-year warranty for both mattresses:

  1. The warranty is partially prorated:
    • The first 10 years are nonprorated. Avocado will cover all costs associated with repairing or replacing the mattress, including shipping and handling charges.
    • Years 11 to 20 are prorated. The customer will be responsible for shipping and handling charges, as well as a percentage of the original mattress price that increases by 5% for each year of ownership. For example, if the mattress needs to be replaced during the 11th year of ownership, the owner will be responsible for 55% of the original price.
    • Years 21 to 25 are also prorated. During this period, owners will pay a flat prorated charge of 95% of the original product price if their mattress needs to be replaced. They will also be responsible for shipping and handling charges.
  2. In the event that Avocado opts to replace the mattress, the replacement will be the same model and size as the original. In the event that the original has been discontinued, Avocado will replace it with the most comparable substitute available.
  3. Warranty coverage is contingent on proper foundational support. According to Avocado, Queen, King, and California King mattresses must be supported with frames that feature at least five to six legs; and Twin, Twin XL, and Full mattresses must be supported with frames that feature at least four legs. Additionally, slatted bed frames for Queen, King, and California King mattresses must be constructed with no more than five inches between each slat.
  4. The mattress must be unpackaged within two weeks of delivery. If the mattress is left in its packaging beyond two weeks, then the warranty may be voided.
  5. The warranty will cover the following defects:
    • Visible sagging or indentations in the sleep surface that measure at least one inch (1?) deep, and are not the direct result of owner misuse or improper foundational support.
    • Physical flaws in the latex that cause the material to split or crack.
    • Manufacturing flaws related to the mattress cover, including tears or unraveled stitches.
  6. The warranty will not cover the following:
    • Visible sagging or indentations in the sleep surface that do not measure at least one inch (1?) deep, or normal increases in latex softness that do not affect the bed’s pressure-relieving qualities. These issues are considered standard wear and tear.
    • Repair or replacement requests that occur due to changes in the owner’s comfort preferences.
    • Burns, cuts, tears, stains, and other types of physical damage that occur due to owner misuse, improper cleaning, and/or inadequate foundational support.
  7. This warranty is non-transferable. It is exclusively available to original owners who purchase their mattress from Avocado or an authorized company retailer. Those who buy or acquire their mattress from the original owner or a non-authorized retailer will not be eligible for warranty protection.

How Does the Avocado Compare to Other Beds?

As any consumer does with a product they’re considering, our mattress assessments naturally involve comparing them with other similar products. Be it composition, firmness, or price, we think it’s important to see how Avocado mattresses stack up to other beds.

The Avocado Green and Avocado Vegan mattresses are very similar, and only differ in terms of their top comfort layers; the Avocado Green has a 100% GOTS wool layer, while the Avocado Vegan has a 100% GOTS cotton layer. Both beds have long expected lifespans – even compared to other latex hybrids. They also isolate motion transfer very well and sleep exceptionally cool. The pillow-top option makes the beds softer and thicker, which may appeal to sleepers whose preferences align with these settings; the non-pillow-top models are 11″ thick and noticeably firmer by comparison.
