Parachute, a company predominantly known for sheets and other bedding accessories, introduced its flagship bed – dubbed The Mattress – in 2019. The Mattress is a coil-on-coil hybrid. Its comfort system features a top layer of New Zealand wool, followed by three tiers of pocketed minicoils and a wool transitional layer. The support core is constructed with multi-gauge pocketed coils and a wool base. The bed also has a cover made of 100% organic cotton. The Mattress measures 13″ thick; in terms of firmness it is considered ‘Medium Firm,’ or a 6.5 on the 1-10 firmness scale.
The Mattress foregoes traditional comfort layer materials (such as memory foam or latex) in exchange for natural wool and pocketed minicoils. This design has some notable benefits, including exceptional temperature neutrality; the wool layer keeps sleepers warm in colder periods and helps wick away moisture and keep the bed cool when temperatures rise. Strong airflow through the coil layers also ensures a comfortable sleep experience for people who normally sleep hot.
The Mattress also offers strong edge reinforcement, leading to less sinkage around the perimeter of the bed, and its multi-gauge support core provides targeted support for the sleeper’s body. However, the bed’s design causes it to feel much different than a typical hybrid with foam or latex; the wool does not conform to the sleeper’s body as closely, and the mattress provides less motion isolation than most competing models.
The Mattress has a price-point that is considered on par with that of the average hybrid. Parachute offers free White Glove delivery – including in-home assembly and old mattress removal – to customers in the contiguous U.S.; comparatively, most competing brands charge at least $100 for this service on top of the listed product price. The Mattress is backed by a 90-night sleep trial and a 10-year warranty.
Read on to learn more about The Mattress in terms of construction, prices, and performance ratings. This guide also includes an overview of Parachute’s shipping, return, and warranty policies, along with some similar mattress recommendations.
Based on our customer feedback, The Mattress has received the following grades among sleepers of different weights and preferred sleep positions. Please note that these ratings are subjective, and that everyone has varying experiences on different mattresses. Sleeper comfort and spinal support are the most important factors when it comes to selecting a mattress.
The Mattress is ‘Medium Firm’ (6.5). This setting is considered optimal for sleepers who weigh at least 130 pounds – particularly back and stomach sleepers, who typically need firmer beds for pain and pressure relief. The bed’s support core is constructed with thicker (low-gauge) coils support the midsection, where most of the sleeper’s weight is usually concentrated, while thinner (low-gauge) coils are located beneath the sleeper’s head and legs. This results in good alignment for most. The Mattress does not conform very closely; as a result, side sleepers may find it uncomfortable. It may also be too firm for anyone who weighs less than 130 pounds.
First, let’s see how The Mattress is constructed. The following table lists the bed’s firmness, thickness, and material composition specs. Please note that Parachute does not disclose the thicknesses of individual mattress layers.
