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.
Individually pocketed springs are the highlight of this mattress. Sleep Republic arranges springs in five zones to target head and shoulders, torso, hips, knees, and feet. They also use tense steel springs around the border to increase edge support.
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.
Hundreds of springs make this mattress heavier to move and rotate. The shipping box has a built-in handle and wheels, but most need help carrying it up the stairs or placing it on a base.
