– Hey, sleepers, Keith here from Tuck. Today we’ll be taking a look at the Tuft & Needle Mint mattress. Tuft & Needle have been
around for a while, but this is their newer luxury offering. Curious how it stacks up to our tests? Keep watching to find out. (Upbeat music) Our testing team today includes lightweight sleeper Rachel, average-weight sleeper Charles, and heavyweight sleeper Neil. (Upbeat music) To unbox the mattress, take it to its final destination and bring a partner with
you as it’s a bit too big for one person to do alone. Take the roll-pack
mattress out of the box, cut it open, and give it about 12 hours to expand to its full height. The Mint mattress is a 12″ mixed foam bed. The cover is made from a blend of polyester and polyamide. The comfort layers consist
of 3″ of 3.5 PCF polyfoam that’s infused with gel and graphite, followed by 2″ of 3 PCF
transitional polyfoam. The support core is made from 7″ of 1.8 PCF high-density polyfoam. The Mint mattress comes in at about a 6 out of 10 on the firmness scale, making it a medium firm mattress. It has a mixed foam feel so it will actually conform to the body when you lay on it, but will be far more responsive than its
memory foam counterparts. To test support, we look
at the spinal alignment of all three of our sleepers when laying on their side. We found that the Mint mattress provided very good support for
lighter-weight sleepers and a little less so for average and heavyweight sleepers. (upbeat music) To illustrate motion isolation, we had our heavyweight sleeper Neil move around one side of the bed while placing a glass filled
with water on the other. As you can see, the water
and the glass barely moves as Neil shifts and rocks around the other side of the bed. Our testing of edge support
on the Mint mattress found it to be a bit lacking, which is on par with other
mixed foam mattresses. Sleepers should expect some sinking when sitting on the side of the bed, and all of our sleepers
did find that there was some sinkage when sleeping
on the side of the bed, but none of them felt unstable. To test for pressure relief, we have a 2D and 3D pressure-mapping tool, and we have all three of our sleepers sleep on their side, back, and stomach. All of our sleepers showed some pressure on their shoulders and hips in all three sleep positions, but Rachel,
our lightweight sleeper, experienced far less,
and we saw no peaking or red in the readings for
all three of our sleepers. (upbeat music) While assessing the temperature neutrality of the Mint mattress,
we found that it sleeps a bit more temperature-neutral than similarly-constructed
polyfoam mattresses. This is in large part due
to the engineered foams in the comfort layers. Now let’s check in with our sleepers. All right Rachel, what did you think of the Tuft & Needle Mint mattress? – I liked it overall. I thought I was pretty well-supported. – This is probably the
best all-around mattress that I’ve tried so far. – It’s a good middle ground between soft and firm. – It wasn’t too warm, it was very comfy, just right there in the middle. I really liked it. – When you were sleeping
on the edge of the bed, did you feel supported or
like you might roll off? – I felt really supported. I was kinda surprised because I saw just how soft it was. – It wasn’t as firm as
other mattresses for sure that have more support,
but I didn’t feel any danger of rolling off or anything. – All right, Neil; well, thanks. (high-five clap) Now let’s take a look at how the Mint stacked up in our mattress testing. The Mint mattress is a mixed foam feel, so it’s conforming yet also responsive. Support was very good
for lightweight sleepers and good for average and
heavyweight sleepers. Motion isolation was very good and edge support was fair, which is on par with other
mixed foam mattresses. Pressure relief was very
good for lightweight sleepers and good for average and
heavyweight sleepers. And lastly, temperature
neutrality was good. A couple of takeaways
from our mattress testing. If you prefer a bouncy
inner-spring mattress, the Mint mattress is not gonna be for you. It’s an all-foam bed and
it has that all-foam feel, so it is a faster response than, say, a traditional memory foam
bed, but it doesn’t have the bounce of springs
that some folks like. If you’re a really
budget-conscious sleeper, the Tuft & Needle Mint is
probably not your best bet. It’s a significantly more expensive than the original Tuft & Needle mattress and it is their premium model. We recommend this mattress for couples. The motion isolation was pretty fantastic, and so you won’t necessarily be bothered by your partner at night. We also recommend the Mint mattress for sleepers who like an all-foam bed but tend to heat up at night. It is an all-polyfoam bed,
so it’s gonna trap heat a little bit less than a
traditional memory foam bed or other similarly-constructed mattresses. Also we recommend this mattress for light to average-weight sleepers. It’s gonna provide a lot
of support for those folks. I will say that heavier sleepers can certainly use the bed. Case in point, Neil loved it, but we still stand on that recommendation for light to average-weight sleepers. (upbeat music) Here’s some additional
