|Category||Criteria||Bear Mattress Rating||What Bear Users Say|
|Customer Satisfaction||Based on data collection, this is an overall customer sentiment regarding the Bear Mattress.||74%||The Bear Mattress has earned a customer satisfaction rating of 74%, which is considered slightly above-average compared to other similarly constructed models.|
|Durability||Memory foam is fairly durable, but the sleep surface may develop sagging and indentations over time that can affect mattress comfort and support to a significant extent.||Fair||Durability for the Bear Mattress appears to be on par with industry averages, but this model has only been sold since 2015 and its long-term performance has not been assessed.|
|Motion Isolation||Memory foam mattresses have been touted for motion isolation, which means that motion does not occur throughout the mattress when someone gets up or shifts their position.||Very Good||According to owners, the Bear Mattress absorbs and isolates motion to a significant extent, and many report a reduced number of nighttime sleep disruptions.|
|Sex||Memory foam is not bouncy and offers minimal responsiveness. As a result, these mattresses may be less than ideal for sex.||Fair||Like many other memory foam models, the Bear Mattress may not be responsive or bouncy enough for some couples.|
|Conforming||Memory foam mattresses are engineered to conform to the sleeper’s figure, creating a cradle-shaped impression that helps align the spine and targets pressure points.||Good||The Bear mattress conforms somewhat closely and owners report some pain and pressure relief, but models with multiple memory foam layers typically contour closer and alleviate more aches and pains.|
|Temperature Neutrality||Memory foam retains more body heat than other mattress materials, and owners often ‘sleep hot’ as a result.||Fair||The Bear Mattress sleeps somewhat hot, which is typical of all-foam mattress models.|
|Off-gassing||Some mattresses emit particles when they are unpackaged, accompanied by unpleasant ‘off-gassing’ smells that can last for days.||Fair||Some Bear owners report off-gassing smells when their bed is new, but the mattress is not associated with excessive odors.|
|Edge Support||Because of their construction, memory foam mattresses often feature little to no edge support and may sink where people sit when they get up from or onto the bed.||Poor||Edge support is a chief complaint with the Bear Mattress, as many owners say their bed sags in places where they sit to get on or off the bed.|
|Noise||Hybrids tend to produce more noise than mattresses, primarily due to the spring and coil components of the support core.||Excellent||The Bear Mattress is virtually silent when bearing weight.|
|Ease of Moving and Rotating||All mattresses are relatively heavy but some weigh much more than others, and this can make them difficult to move and maneuver.||Very Good||A Queen-size Bear Mattress weighs roughly 70 pounds, which is light by memory foam mattress standards.|
