Greetings from Europe

Hi georgel,

Welcome to the Mattress Forum! all the way from Romania. I have some “attachment” to Romania because my fiance was born there which puts it high on my list of favorite countries :slight_smile:

Unfortunately I have no knowledge of the Romanian market but the ideas and guidelines that are part of the information here about “how” to choose a mattress would apply anywhere.

The information about each mattress is also somewhat limited but I can make a few comments about each of them.

If all the polyfoam in this mattress is 30 - 35 kg/cm (1.87 - 2.17 lbs/ft3) then it would be a good quality and relatively durable material (see the foam quality guidelines here). A continous coil is one of the lower cost innersprings but it can certainly be a durable component as long as you are OK with the greater motion transfer and less contouring ability compared to a pocket coil. There is more about the different types of innersprings in this article and in post #10 here.

While latex is a durable material … the “pikolatex” in this mattress appears to be “flakes” of latex mixed in with polyester fibers and quilted to the cover which certainly isn’t the same as having an actual layer of latex. Overall though … assuming that there is no lower quality polyfoam in the mattress than 30 - 35 kg/cm … then there would be no obvious weak links in this mattress.

As you mentioned this mattress has two separate coil systems inside it. One of them (the one that is 34 MM or a little under 1.5") is a microcoil which is a good quality and durable component in the comfort layers. They aren’t clear about the specifics of the other one but it’s likely a “regular” pocket coil. Because there are two separate coil systems in the mattress the coil count would be higher (closer to double) than a mattress that only uses one coil system but coil count isn’t particularly meaningful anyway.

If the foam used in the mattress is HR (high resilience) polyfoam (which “should be” at least 2.5 lbs/ft3 or 40 kg/cm) then it would be a high quality and higher performance material than “regular” polyfoam although it still wouldn’t be in the same quality/durability range as latex. The cotton/wool and viscose fabric used in the cover and quilting are also higher quality materials and would provide a sleeping surface that wicked moisture well and was very temperature regulating.

Once again … assuming that all the polyfoam in this mattress is HR polyfoam with a density of 2.5 lbs/ft3 or higher … then there would be no weak links in this mattress either.

Post #13 here and the posts it links to has more about how I would evaluate the “value” of a mattress purchase.

Since both of these are made by the same manufacturer they are likely in a similar “value” range based on the material cost of the mattress (although higher budget mattresses generally have a slightly higher margin as well).
