Our Amerisleep Independence Bed Reviews For 2017

When buying a mattress comes to mind, most people put one thing on top – comfort. They want to know if this particular mattress is comfortable enough for them to sleep on. While comfort does correlate with quality in many cases (if it’s comfortable it’s high quality) – this is still not necessarily true in many other cases.

You can and should get a lot more than just comfort out of your bed. The quality of your sleep is directly linked to your overall health, and you don’t want to think only about the comfort in a mattress, but its health-promoting attributes as well.

The mattress industry and the beds themselves have changed drastically over the past few decades, and you simply cannot afford to think about the buying process as you or someone older in your family thought 20 years ago.

Today, we have options that actually improve health. There are models with Celliant covers, plant-based foams, CertiPUR-Us certified foams, all materials which weren’t used 20 years ago and now provide health-promoting benefits. We’ll talk about these benefits as we go along with the review of the Amerisleep Independence, and mention which specific benefits it has. I just wanted to help our readers realize what they should be looking for in a bed, and how much a good one can provide.

One good rule of thumb: The comfort is just a bonus, a cherry on top, for any good bed.

Amerisleep’s Independence mattress is one of the company’s latest additions to its rich line of products. This is actually considered a luxury memory foam mattress.

Construction Quality

Independence is a 14“ thick foam bed that features a special kind of softness and comfort but still manages to be highly breathable and responsive. Let’s see what’s under all this comfort on top.

Great news right off the bat. Nothing unusual for a luxury mattress, but still worth mentioning. The top layer consists of 2“ of Bio-Pur+ memory foam. This is a plant-based foam, and it’s also very dense – sitting at 4.0lbs – which is usually considered high-density. Now we know where the comfort comes from, and being a plant-based foam, we also know it breathes more efficiently than industry foam, meaning it’ll provide a cooled sleeping experience – excellent heat retention.

The middle layer is the transition layer between the top comfort and bottom support. This middle layer is comprised of 3“ of Amerisleep’s Activus foam. It provides the same type (or better) support than industry foam but has been further enhanced to provide more responsiveness, breathability, and support for the top layer.

Being responsive, this means it’ll perfectly contour to your body and respond swiftly to all of your movement during the night.
While manufacturing the Activus foam, Amerisleep uses its Surface Modification Technology or SMT, to give it those response enhancements, which also provide better cooling and airflow.

The bottom layer is a 9“ thick Bio-Core Support foam. This is basically the foundation for the entire mattress and support for the two layers on top.

Bio-Core foam is also an enhanced version of traditional memory foam, which besides exceptional support, also provides additional breathability.

To summarize, the quality of construction of this mattress is certainly of highest standards. The support here is very well-made and designed, and you can obviously notice how much thought they put into providing a joyful sleeping experience, being that every single layer here has some feature that provides better comfort and airflow.

And now, to put it as most cheap telemarketing schemes will tell you – “But wait! There’s more!“ (there really is).

Amerisleep’s Mattress Covers

Remember how we mentioned mattresses with actual health-promoting attributes? Well, the Independence is one of those beds, and here’s why.

The cover Amerisleep uses with this mattress is a high-performance Celliant based cover. It’s actually a combination of spandex, polyester and C, lliant, but we’re only interested in the last one.

Celliant is really a special piece of fabric. Having this kind of material within your bed cover will literally make you a healthier human being.

You see, Celliant has been clinically proven to help people fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. This happens because Celliant is comprised of materials that actually transform your body heat into infrared light.

Infrared light has been shown to increase blood flow within your body and therefore provide more quality sleep. This process will also oxygenate your body, regulate body temperature and possibly even help reduce pain.

On top of all this, the Celliant is a thermo-reactive material, meaning you won’t be sleeping hot under it either. Other materials used in the cover help it become more durable, breathable and a piece of cake to maintain.

Warranty, Shipping and Trial Period

You’ll be glad to find out that Amerisleep provides one of the most useful warranty policies in the entire industry. Its warranty lasts for 20 years, where the first decade warrants for a full replacement and the latter decade is prorated.

On top of that, you also get a 90-day trial period. This means that you can sleep on this mattress for three months before deciding whether or not to return it for a full refund.

The shipping is free, and usually, arrival takes 1 to 7 days, which includes both processing your order and delivering the mattress to your doorstep.

Amerisleep Independence – Is it a Good Fit for You?

I always like to say how even though a bed is of exceptional quality, it still won’t be the perfect fit for everyone. This is due personal preferences. Everyone’s different, and it’s only natural we don’t all have the same needs and expectations. Here’s a quick rundown of things you should keep in mind when considering the Amerisleep Independence.

It’s huge – remember, this model is 14“ thick. While these inches do provide next-level comfort and support, it’s still true that it’s going to be extra thick, and heavier than a typical mattress. Take this into consideration if you’re shopping for a bed that’s going to be moved around often, and think of a particularly thick mattress will fit into your bedroom.

It’s medium-firm – it is neither firm nor soft. It’s just in the middle of things. What we can say is that if you’re looking for comfort, but still don’t want to “sink in“ into the memory foam, then this will be a good fit for you. However, if you want something definitive, particularly soft or firm, then you should probably look at other options.

It’s built in the USA – we know a lot of people mainly want their beds to be made in US factories. If you’re one of those people – you’re in luck. Everything on and within this mattress has been manufactured in the USA.

It isolates motion well – good for couples – all the high-density and high-quality foam layers in this mattress allow it to isolate motion quite nicely. This means that even if you or your partner tend to toss and turn a lot during sleep – the other person won’t feel a thing. If you’re shopping as a couple, this simple feature is a must-have.

What We Liked:

Quality, Support, AND Comfort – this one certainly deserves to be labeled a luxury style. It manages to provide exceptional levels of support and comfort, while also being able to keep a cool, breathable surface.

Celliant-based Cover – the cover has actual health-promoting properties. While spandex and polyester provide style, easy maintenance, and breathability, the Celliant transforms your body’s heat into infrared light which is a positive thing for your health.

Warranty, Trial Period, Shipping – Amerisleep has it all. 20 years of warranty, 90-day trial period, and to top it all off – free shipping.

What We Didn’t Like:

Might Not Be For Side-Sleepers – plenty of people sleep on their sides, and while you can do that on this mattress as well, it’s still more suitable for people sleeping on their back.

Amerisleep Independence is one of those beds that’s going to last for a long time, provide exceptional quality, support and comfort. It’ll also keep your health in check, help you fall asleep faster, and provide a cooler sleeping experience.

There’s really not much we can say to persuade you of buying this mattress. It’s a luxury memory foam mattress, and if you’re happy with memory foam, you should end your search right here, because this bed simply has it all.

That said, you might be looking at the price tag. What we can say about its price tag is that yes, it’s not cheap, but it’s also not very expensive when compared to its luxury competitors which provide more or less the same value.

We believe Amerisleep has done an excellent job with this mattress, and that the price tag is more than worth it. Our suggestion is that if you can – go for it, and if you can, browse our website for a more budget-type option.

If you are shopping on a budget, keep looking, but make sure whatever you pick has at least some of the benefits like this one. The Celliant-cover seems to be worth looking for.
