Quick Summary

The Propel Mattress from Brooklyn Bedding is a memory foam hybrid bed. It is constructed with a top layer of copper-infused polyfoam, followed by secondary comfort layers of standard polyfoam and gel-infused memory foam. The support core features pocketed coils reinforced with a high-density foam base. The cover is constructed from performance fabric that acts as a phase-change material (PCM). The Propel Mattress measures 11 1/2″ thick; in terms of firmness it is considered ‘Medium Firm’, or a 6 on the 1-10 firmness scale.

One major benefit of the Propel Mattress is its PCM cover, which provides exceptional temperature neutrality by absorbing body heat from sleeper’s until it reaches a cool, comfortable setting. This material The copper infusion in the top comfort layer also helps with temperature regulation; additionally, copper can alleviate aches and pains in the sleeper’s most sensitive areas and can improve blood flow for those with poor circulation. The mattress also isolates motion fairly well and produces minimal noise compared to other hybrids.

Brooklyn Bedding offers free shipping for all customers in the contiguous U.S. The Propel Mattress is backed by a 120-night sleep trial and a 10-year warranty. Read on to learn more about the Propel Mattress in terms of pricing, construction, and performance. This guide also includes an overview of Brooklyn Bedding’s shipping, return, and warranty policies, along with some similar brand recommendations.

What Type of Sleeper is Best Suited to a Propel Mattress?

Based on our customer feedback, The Propel 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.

For more information on sleeping positions please see our guides for sidebackstomach and combination sleepers.

Weight Light Average Heavy
Sleep Position Less than 130 LBS 130 LBS - 230 LBS Greater than 230 LBS
Side
Back
Stomach

The Propel Mattress offers a ‘Medium Firm’ feel that is optimal for side, back, and stomach sleepers who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds.

The material conforms to a moderate extent without sagging or hugging too closely; most experience pain and pressure relief as a result.

The bed may also be suitable for people who are either lighter than 130 pounds or heavier than 230 pounds if they prefer a feel that balances softness and support.

Propel Mattress Recommendations

  • You want to purchase a hybrid mattress at a below-average price-point
  • You have poor circulation
  • You and/or your partner awaken easily due to movement or noise
  • You tend to sleepcompare hot

How Does the Propel Mattress 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 the Propel Mattress stacks up to other beds.

The Propel Mattress is a great option for hot sleepers. A PCM cover and copper-infused polyfoam comfort layer help keep the surface cool and comfortable, while the pocketed coils circulate air very well for added temperature neutrality.

The copper component can also benefit sleepers with poor circulation and/or chronic pain. The mattress also isolates motion transfer relatively well and produces minimal noise.

The most notable downside is lack of selection; one firmness and thickness setting for the Propel Mattress is available, and this may be somewhat limiting to sleepers with differing feel/profile preferences.

Per Brooklyn Bedding: “Brooklyn Bedding mattresses have been designed to be used on foundations with solid support with little or no give. This includes slatted wood or metal foundations with slats no more than 4? apart, wood or metal box foundations, and solid wood or metal platforms. Substitution or use of improper foundations such as old box springs (5+ years or more) without solid support, slatted wood or metal foundations with slats more than 4? apart, will void your mattress warranty, and all other warranties expressed or implied.”

    4. The warranty will cover the following defects:
      • Sagging or indentations in the sleep surface measuring one inch (1″) or deeper.
      • Physical flaws in the mattress or mattress materials that cause foams and other components to split, crack, or deteriorate despite proper use and handling.
    5. The warranty will not cover the following:
      • Sagging or indentations in the sleep surface that do not measure one inch (1″) or deeper, or normal increases in foam softness that occur over time. These issues are considered standard wear and tear.
      • Burns, cuts, tears, stains, and other types of physical damage that occur due to abuse or inadequate foundational support.
