Quick Overview

Nolah offers two two different mattresses.  The Nolah Original 10 is a 10″ HR polyfoam mattress, while the Nolah Signature 12 is a 12″ flippable HR polyfoam mattress.  The two mattresses make use of Nolah’s proprietary AirFoam.

Our review of the Nolah Mattresses found that the AirFoam did a great job hugging our hips and shoulders as we laid on our side, taking any pressure away.  The Nolah Signature 12 had a firmer feel when flipped and give our heavier sleepers excellent support keeping the spine aligned when sleeping on their stomach.  Both mattresses did seem to sleep a bit more cool than a traditional memory foam mattress.

Read on for our full review of the Nolah Mattresses, including sleeper and performance ratings, who we recommend this bed to, and everything else you need to know about the mattress.

Sleep Rating

Durability
Good

The durability of Nolah mattresses appears to be at least fair, but the company has been in business for roughly three years and the long-term performance of these models has not been assessed.

Motion Isolation
Very Good

The Nolah mattress isolates transfer to some extent, but not as much as models with memory foam layers that absorb and minimize motion more effectively.

Conforming
Good

Like other mixed foam mattresses, the Nolah conforms somewhat closely but does not offer the same targeted pressure relief as memory foam mattresses.

Sex
Fair

The Nolah mattress is not particularly bouncy, and may not be responsive enough for some couples.

Temperature Neutrality
Good

The Nolah mattress can be a heat trap, according to owners, which causes the bed to sleep warm.

Off-gassing
Good

Nolah mattresses emit some odor when new, but no more than other mixed foam models; the smells typically clear out within a few days.

Edge Support
Fair

The Nolah mattress offers little to no edge support, leaving the perimeter of the bed susceptible to early sinkage.

Noise
Excellent

The Nolah mattress is virtually silent when bearing weight, according to customers.

As you can see, the Nolah is an excellent choice for side sleepers of all weight categories, and performs well for those who sleep on their back. We are hesitant to recommend the soft side of the Nolah Signature 12 to larger sleepers, since likely will lack the necessary support, but the firm side of the mattress should be great.

Our testing process found the Nolah should also be great for you if…

  • You’re looking for an affordable memory foam mattress
  • You love the feel of memory foam – sleeping more “in” than “on” a bed
  • Looking for the ability to flip the mattress find the proper feel for you
  • You sleep with a partner and want to limit the movement you encounter on the bed

Warranty: Nolah Sleep offers a 15-year replacement warranty for all mattresses.

  1. Warranty coverage begins on the date of purchase; the warranty is entirely nonprorated. Nolah Sleep will, at their sole option, repair or replace all mattresses that are deemed defective for as long as the warranty is valid.
  2. Nolah mattresses are designed for use with certain types of foundational support. According to the company, mattresses must be supported with a ‘supportive and proper foundation/base which is substantial enough to support the mattress and its users‘. Use of an improper foundation will void the warranty.
  3. Nolah Sleep will cover all costs related to physically repairing or replacing a mattress, as well as all transportation and handling charges for shipping a defective mattress to the company. If the mattress is not covered under warranty, the owner must pay a maximum of $100 in shipping charges each way.
  4. The warranty will cover the following product defects:
    • Visible indentations or sagging in the mattress surface that measure one and a half inches (1 1/2″) or deeper and are not the result of owner misuse and/or improper foundational support.
    • Physical flaws in the foam that cause it to deteriorate or crack prematurely.
    • Manufacturing flaws related to the cover, including issues with seams or zippers. Nolah Sleep may opt to only replace the cover if there are no other issues with the mattress.
  5. The warranty will not cover the following:
    • Normal increases in foam softness that do not affect its pressure-relieving abilities, or visible indentations or sagging in the mattress surface that do not measure one and a half inches (1 1/2″) or deeper. These issues are all considered standard wear and tear.
    • Burns, cuts, tears, stains, and other types of physical damage that occur as a direct result of owner misuse, improper cleaning, and/or inadequate foundational support.
  6. This warranty is exclusively extended to original owners who buy their mattress directly from Nolah Sleep or an authorized retailer. Those who buy or acquire their mattress from the original owner or a non-authorized retailer do so ‘as is’, and will not be entitled to warranty protection.
