The Good
The 5 layers of patented pocket springs combined with responsive memory foam creates a supportive, medium to firm mattress suitable for a range of body shapes, sizes and sleeping styles. With its focus on keeping sleepers cool through its synthetic latex layer and air flow sleep surface, the Simba is good for hot Aussie nights.
A medium-firm support system is the best part of the Noa. Many customers enjoy the combination of foam and springs, which features the best of both sleep systems. The natural latex is also a plus for hybrid designs, as several competitors use synthetic foam instead of the higher quality material.
The Bad
Customer service seems to let the Simba down. Multiple customers complain that phone calls and emails go unanswered and responses take a long time. Delivery can be unreliable, and the mattress has been known to develop faults, including sagging on one side. Returning the mattress during the 100-night trial can be difficult.
Although the Noa is firmer than all-foam designs, it's still too firm for some. A firm feel is good for side and back sleepers. However, small sleepers or stomach sleepers may find it too hard. This is especially important to keep in mind for couples with vastly different preferences.
