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.
Customisation is the key to Sleeping Duck's success. Customers can choose between two firmness levels, and then switch up layers if it's not suitable. It's easy to contact the customer service reps and ask for a firmer or softer layer. Plus, all their foam are Australian made and any foam layer or mattress you return is donated or recycled.
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.
Easily, the weakness of this mattress is the price. Almost every size is several hundred dollars higher than the average foam design in our index. There are a few mattress with similar price tags, but this is one of the more expensive hybrid models. Below, we explain how the Sleeping Duck's construction and materials contribute to the cost.
