|Category||Criteria||Avocado Green Mattress Rating||What Avocado Users Say|
|Customer Satisfaction||Based on data collection, this is an overall customer sentiment regarding the Avocado mattress.||76%||The Avocado Green mattress has earned a customer satisfaction rating of 76%, which is better than the average rating for hybrid models.|
|Durability||Hybrids tend to degrade faster than other mattresses, often due to low-grade polyfoam used in the support core.||Good||Latex is highly durable. Because the Avocado Green substitutes polyfoam with latex in the support core, the mattress has a longer-than-average projected lifespan. However, Avocado has been in business for less than three years, so long-term performance has not been assessed.|
|Motion Isolation||Ideally, a hybrid mattress will fall in the middle of the spectrum in terms of motion isolation: more motion transfer than memory foam or latex, but less transfer than an innerspring.||Good||Some motion transfer is to be expected from any hybrid, but Avocado owners report that the latex surface minimizes and isolates motion fairly effectively.|
|Sex||Most hybrids feature a blend softness and bounciness that many couples find conducive for sex.||Fair||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.|
|Conforming||Hybrid mattresses often provide a good balance of firmness and body-conforming, making them suitable for people who feel that memory foam is too soft and innersprings don’t relieve enough pressure.||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.|
|Temperature Neutrality||Hybrid mattresses tend to retain less body heat and sleep cooler than models made from memory foam or latex.||Good||One downside to latex mattresses is that they can be heat traps, but the mostly natural latex used in Avocado mattresses sleeps cooler for most people than synthetic or blended latex.|
|Off-gassing||Off-gassing may occur, but most hybrids produce less odor than mattresses made exclusively of foam.||Good||Natural latex emits minimal off-gassing. Some initial odors may be present, but they tend to dissipate within a few days.|
|Edge Support||Hybrids usually provide more edge support than memory foam and latex mattresses, and are usually on par with traditional innersprings.||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||Hybrids tend to produce more noise than strictly foam mattresses, primarily due to the spring and coil components of the support core.||Fair||Some Avocado owners report squeaking and creaking noises when the mattress is bearing weight.|
|Ease of Moving and Rotating||Mattress size is an important consideration, but the average hybrid is lighter and easier to move than most traditional innerspring or foam models.||Fair||A Queen-size non-pillow-top Avocado mattress weighs 97 pounds, which may be manageable for some, but the Queen-size pillow-top model weighs 132 pounds.|
|Twin||38W” x 74L”||11″ (Non-Pillow-Top)|
|Twin Extra Long (XL)||38W” x 80L”||11″ (Non-Pillow-Top)|
|Full||54W” x 74L”||11″ (Non-Pillow-Top)|
|Queen||60W” x 80L”||11″ (Non-Pillow-Top)|
|King||76W” x 80L”||11″ (Non-Pillow-Top)|
|California King||72W” x 80L”||11″ (Non-Pillow-Top)|
Please note that the cost of adding a pillow-top layer varies by mattress size. Adding a pillow-top costs $240 for a Twin; $300 for a Twin XL or Full; $400 for a Queen; and $500 for a King and California King.
