For the Layers, we have the ILD’s but we do not have the PCF for any of the layers.
Here is the ILDs used in the latex for the custom build mattress:

The transitional foam and base foam layer are about 1’’ each. I do not have the PCF or ILD of these layers.
The total height of the Custom Mattress will be 13.5’’ tall.
For the coils, there is a total of 1032 coils in the King and they are zoned coils. The gauge for the zoned coils is listed at the Perimeter-13.5, Inner-16, and Zoned-14.75.
Surprisingly NEST is now less transparent than Brooklyn Bedding about what is in their mattresses, I have called and the phone support team is light on details, they do not respond to emails and the retail store gives inconsistent information. Being that they are a sponsor of the TMU maybe you have more info.
Bay Bed Hybrid latex
A transition layer is not needed. We use a fitted sheet to protect the latex from tearing on the coils.
The base layer is .75" of 1.7 density, 63 ILD foam as is the perimeter foam of the foam encasement.
Coils are from Texas pocket springs, 6" in height. The firm side is 13.5 gauge. Medium is 14.5 gauge.
The cover is Bamboo fabric, 1" poly foam 1.5 lb. density14 ILD, .5" dacron fiber.
The latex is a Talalay blend- 70% synthetic/ 30% natural.
Three 1 inch layers The firm is 44 ILD, the soft is 24 and the extra soft is 14.
Above I mentioned our preferences and height and BMI.
My concern with the Brooklyn Bedding custom is the lack of a pillow top means I won't get enough pressure relief and the Talalay will not be frim enough for my wife.
My concern with the NEST products is the Pillow top becoming matted and making the lifetime warranty useless (Needs to have a 1 impression) (Feel was pretty good)
Bay Bedding felt great but no trial period to see if we really like it and no non-latex options if we don’t (The feel was great for both of us)
