A Cooler and More Pressure Relieving Way To Sleep
In general, memory foam has a tendency of running hot during the night. The makers of Snuggle-Pedic have developed a patented air flow transfer design to help keep you cool and allow breathability in your mattress all night long. Their slogan is “The Mattress that Breathes.” We will be putting this slogan to the test in our Snuggle-Pedic Mattress review and see if it lives up to its claim.
Who makes Snuggle-Pedic?
Snuggle-Pedic is one of the many mattresses made by Relief-Mart, who not only makes memory foam mattresses, but they also manufacture air adjustable, latex and hybrid mattresses as well. All of these mattresses are developed by a Chiropractor that specializes in back pain. Dr. Rick Swartzburg has almost 20 years of experience in pain relief and product development for Relief-Mart. They are the top-rated mattress on Amazon for 3 years running, with each mattress made in the U.S.A. from top to bottom in their Southern California factories. Because they make every mattress, they have the ability to custom design the perfect mattress for you. In fact, Relief-Mart can make mattresses that you can easily get lost in. For example, one of their custom beds is 10 x 12 Ft. With a mattress that size, you won’t have to worry about your kids coming in to sleep on your bed. There will be plenty of space for everyone.
Not only are they made in the U.S.A. but they use certified safe components by three different companies. The two popular certifications are Greenguard and CertiPUR-US. In addition to these two, they have The Green Bear Mark of Excellence. With the very low V.O.C. rating, you can rest assured that when this mattress comes into your home there will be no dangerous toxins spilling into the air that could cause cancer.
Cooling Mattress Construction
The Snuggle-Pedic mattress is a classic memory foam mattress with lots of great features that you will love. Let’s take a look at the construction of this breathable mattress.
- Breathable cover: Their proprietary Kool-Flow cover is made of an eco-friendly viscose bamboo, polyester and lycra. Along with being eco-friendly, bamboo is also inherently dust mite resistant and wicks away moisture. The micro-vent stitching throughout the material adds to the breathability and allow the air to flow from the layers underneath. The cover has a very soft, stretchy feel and can be unzipped and removed easily for washing.
- 3” Snuggle-Flex memory foam: This has a more buoyant feel than typical memory foam however it still has a slower response when you lay down. This layer has aerated holes to allow the air to flow and keep you cool throughout the night.
- Base Foam: This is a firm support layer that has channels in it that allows air to flow and fully circulate when communicating with the aerated foam above.
Breathable Memory Foam Feel
The Snuggle-Pedic has a memory foam feel with a little extra buoyancy. When you initially lay down on the mattress you will slowly sink in. This will provide great pressure relief, however, you won’t get that stuck in the mud feeling as with some other memory foams. This mattress has more of a medium feel overall, but has a softer surface feel and plushness. (They use a 25% firmer ILD base than most other Bed-In-A-Box companies. So even though it feels more plush, you won’t sink into the base as much when you lie on the mattress). Some heavier individuals and stomach sleepers that prefer a firmer mattress may need to take advantage of their free customization policy. This will allow you to take advantage of their modular cover system to send re-enforced layering in order to get the support needed.
We feel one of the best things about this mattress is the adjustability. If you are not completely satisfied with the feel of the foam they will send you a replacement that will better suit your needs at no additional cost to you. We feel the patented airflow transfer system worked very well and provided great temperature balancing benefits all night long. I read in some reviews that it slept hot and wanted to point out that because of the aeration its best to have a mattress protector and sheets that are breathable as well. If you don’t, the airflow transfer system might not work.
Firmness with adjustability
The Snuggle-Pedic has a medium to soft feel and we give it a rating of 6 on the firmness scale. Again, we love that they will send out a more firm or soft foam if you are unsatisfied with the feel of this mattress. This makes it a very versatile mattress and will accommodate all types of sleepers.
We felt the Snuggle-Pedic performed very well in the motion transfer category. They use 3” of memory foam and with that thickness it dampens the motion. Not being able to feel your partner move around at night is a great benefit for couples.
When you sit on the edge of the bed you do feel it compressing, same for when you lay on the bed. That being said, we felt the edge support was just ok on the Snuggle-Pedic. Most all memory foam mattresses struggle in this category.
The Snuggle-Pedic is very well priced with a Queen starting at $899. We also have a coupon for an additional 10% just use the coupon code ASL10. They also offer free shipping, returns and customizations. With all of that considered this is one of the best priced mattresses we have reviewed so far.
Snuggle-Pedic offers a 20 year warranty. The first 10 years are non-prorated meaning no additional cost will be added, except for shipping after the first year.
Along with a great price and warranty, they offer a 120 night sleep trial. If for any reason you don’t like the mattress they will either customize the foam layer or provide a refund at no additional cost to you. We think that’s pretty great because often times it’s very difficult to know exactly how the mattress will feel. Even if you had the chance to try it out in a store you still need a few nights of sleeping on it to really know if it’s the right mattress for you. It can also be a hassle to return a mattress especially if that’s all you have to sleep on so having the ability to customize the foam comfort layer makes it easy.
Snuggle-Pedic appears to put the customer first. The majority of the customer reviews I saw online showed a positive experience when dealing with customer service support. Even those few who did not prefer the bed had a great experience with the customer service department.

The Snuggle-Pedic pillow is one of the best rated on amazon so we had to see if it lives up to its ratings. Just like the mattress, the pillow is made in the USA with CertiPUR-US shredded foam. The cool thing about shredded foam pillows is you can adjust the support by adding or taking away the shredded foam inside. This makes it a great pillow for all types of sleepers. Also, unlike down it doesn’t go flat in the middle of the night.
- Breathable cover: The cover is the same Kool-Flow material as the mattress and is made of an eco-friendly viscose bamboo, polyester and lycra. Along with being ecofriendly bamboo is also antibacterial and wicks away moisture. The micro vents throughout the material add to the breathability and allow the air to flow from the layers underneath. The cover has a very soft stretchy feel.
- Shredded foam mix: The mix is specially formulated to provide support and buoyancy yet still have a soft feel. You can add or remove the foam inside to create the perfect height for your pillow.
Feel of the Snuggle-Pedic Pillow
When you first unwrap the pillow it will take some time to fluff back up. If you want to speed that up you can put it in the dryer for a few minutes and the foam will come back to its original shape. I found that if you pop it in the dryer every once and a while it also helps to keep it fluffy. We ended up taking some of the foam out of the pillow to lower the height just a little bit. It was nice to be able to do that because often times pillows have to be the exact height you need and without the ability to adjust it you might waist hundreds of dollars trying to find the perfect pillow. Overall, this is a great pillow for all sleepers and provided the perfect balance of support and plushness needed to be comfortable.
Sleep trial and price
This pillow has the same great sleep trial as the mattress for 120 nights. This is so beneficial because even though you might be able to adjust the height, maybe the feel of the foam just isn’t for you. Great thing about Snuggle-Pedic is they will also work with you on the feel of the pillow. If for any reason you don’t like the foam in the pillow they can make adjustments to the foam, at no additional cost to you. We found the pillow was very well priced. The pillow starts at $49.99, which is the lowest priced pillow we have tested so far. Additionally, they offer a 20 year non-prorated warranty so really you have nothing to lose when trying this pillow.
Organic Cotton Memory Foam Mattress Protector Review
So, now that you have a nice new mattress you will want to protect it, right? We have found that some mattress protectors will make you hot at night even though the mattress underneath has cooling benefits. The reason for this is the lack of breathability in the protector. Of course you want it to protect but at what point do you sacrifice your nights sleep for that protection? Well you don’t have to with this protector. Its completely breathable and water resistant. That being said, if your kids, that might be still potty training, tend to sneak in your bed at night you might want to have a mattress protector with a stronger barrier, that while not breathable due to use of a plastic like liner, will offer you an impervious protection that is fully water proof.
Construction of the Breathable Snuggle-Pedic Mattress Protector
Just like the mattress and pillow, the protector is 100% made in the USA.
- Top layer is treated with Greenshield, which is an ecofriendly solution. This will repel water and oils allowing it to bead up when it comes in contact. The solution is considered green and releases no VOCs, as well as, has no PFOS or PFOA, which can be considered toxic.
- This Greenshield treated fabric is made of organic cotton quilted with a backing of polyester and lycra to allow the cover to stretch.
Feel of the Breathable Snuggle-Pedic Mattress Protector
We have tried many mattress protectors and most of them left us feeling hot. We thought this one worked really well with the cooling layers below. The material seems very durable and has a soft yet slightly stretchy feel. Additionally, it has very stretchy deep pockets making it easy to take on and off, as well as, being able to fit different beds that might need a deeper pocket. If you don’t need a water proof protector, this is a great product with no harsh chemicals that wont sleep hot.
