Just like other foam materials … memory foam comes in a wide range of types and grades that vary from very low quality and much less durable materials to higher quality and more durable materials. There is more about the many variables and materials that can affect the durability and useful life of a mattress relative to different people in post #4 here but if durability is your primary criteria in a mattress then in very general terms latex is the most durable foam material.

When you can’t test a mattress in person then a more detailed conversation on the phone with a knowledgeable and experienced manufacturer that understands how to “match” their mattresses to different body types and sleeping positions includes the results of any local testing you have done is the best way to decide which mattress is likely to be the best match for you in terms of PPP (see mattress firmness/comfort levels in post #2 here).
Brooklyn Bedding and Dreamfoam are “sister companies” (see post #4 here and post #3 here) and both of them are members here which means that I think very highly of both of them and they compete well with the best in the industry in terms of their quality, value, and service.
You can see my thoughts about Bedinabox in post #2 here and I would tend to avoid a mattress that used 3 lb memory foam in layers that were more than about an inch or so thick or any mattress that didn’t meet the guidelines in post #4 here.

I haven’t talked with any of these so they will take some additional research and some phone calls before you visit them to find out the types of mattresses they have on their showroom floor and to make sure that they can provide you with the information listed in this article so you can identify any weak links in a mattress you are considering and make meaningful comparisons with other mattresses. I’ve included the manufacturers they carry where the odds are higher that you will be able to find out the information you need to make an informed decision.
Quite frankly though if I was in your shoes and was shopping locally I would take the time to visit either or both of the two members of this site that are closest to you since both of them are very knowledgeable, experienced, and transparent and it’s likely that you will do much better in terms of quality, value, and service with either of these than anything you have available locally.
