Base Layer: 6.5 inch high density memory foam: This high density foam is the supportive base layer. It is designed to absorb maximum weight from above layers without sinking or sagging.

1 Inch Gel Memory Foam Layer

While memory foam absorbs heat from our body and dissipates it evenly across the entire mattress, the infused I gel keeps the mattress surface cool.

The cell construction of a memory foam layer loosens up when cool gel is infused. This allows proper air flow and ventilation much needed to make the top surface breathable and cool.

1 inch 8 ILD & 1 inch 25 ILD layers

ILD or Indentation Load Deflection metric is used to measure firmness of a mattress. And it corresponds to how much weight or pressure a mattress can sustain.

Although the higher the ILD the better will be the mattress durability. But the comfort level also varies. Mattresses with higher ILD are more firm compared to mattresses with low ILD.

Keeping this in mind while designing the layer construction, Olee has meticulously added two memory foam layers between the top soft foam layer and bottom supportive foam.

The 1 inch ILD memory foam layer is on the softer side and comfortably acts as an additional cushion like feeling to the top gel layer.

The 25 inch ILD memory foam layer is on the firmer side. It resists body weight from hitting the hard surface of the bottom 7 inch high density foam.

If you have noticed the construction, you will surely understand that the level of firmness has kept increasing as the layer structure comes down.

The topmost layer is gel infused and very comfy, the second 1 inch 8 ILD layer is soft followed by 25 ILD layer which is firm.

On the whole, the top layers are resisting pressure from directly hitting the bottom high density layer and in the process providing the right amount of sink required for you to enjoy a comfortable sleep.

7 Inch High Density Foam Layer

Like in every other memory foam mattress, the bottom layer is high in density and acts as a supportive base. It does not allow pressure or weights to sink further and is designed to sustain weights of two persons.

If this layer fails, then the mattress starts sinking and develops deep indents. And this why, this bottom layer is usually more than 6 inches in thickness and is made from high density foam.

Comfort - Olee Mattress Reviews

As per one review, a user suffering from shoulder injury had absolutely loved her new Olee mattress.

Since the time of purchase she never had to wake up to the horrible pain which she experienced while sleeping on her previous mattress. Thanks to the right level of sink of the top layers and perfect base level support from the high density bottom layer of the 10 inch 3 layer Olee mattress.

Motion Isolation Test - Olee Mattress Review

The mattress doesn’t sink sideways beyond 2 inches. This means it perfectly aligns with your body curvature alone and doesn’t really push / sink your partner as you move around.

Inflation Time

Unlike most other gel mattresses, you really need not wait for 2 to 3 days for the bed to completely inflate to its maximum height.

Several user reviews tell that this bed inflates well within few hours after opening it and you can even start using the bed on the very same day you receive it. It expands to nearly 9 inches within few minutes of opening the outer cover.

However, unless you have no other choice but to use it on the same day, personally I would suggest you to wait for at least 1 day time.

This might help in inflating the mattress to its maximum height and additionally for the odour to disappear.

Smell / Odour - Olee Memory Foam Mattress

Every other gel mattress from any brand in the market comes with an odour. As end users, the only thing we are left with to help ourselves is to see how strong or outrageous the smell is.

Olee mattress, except for smelling like a brand new mattress doesn’t really carry the strong outrageous odour of a typical gel mattress.

And this smell vanishes as the mattress inflates to its full height which means, by the time you start using the mattress, the smell should more or less disappear. In case you are looking for a gel mattress that is completely free from any kind of odor, then I would suggest you to try Lucid gel mattresses.

Back Pain Relief - Olee Sleep Review

The bottom supportive base is key for back pain relief in any mattress. Your back will start aching the moment you sleep on a mattress that either sinks deep in or if the mattress’s bottom layer is damaged. However, if the bottom layer is too much firm again then you might simply miss the experience and comfort of sleeping on a memory foam mattress.

I myself have tried, tested, reviewed many a number of mattresses; both air mattresses as well as gel infused ones. And one common problem that I happened to notice is that depending on your weight, you have to choose either a plush mattress or firm mattress. Plush one for light weight people and firmer one for well-built or heavily built people.

But the uniqueness of buying a 10 inch Olee mattress is that can be used by kids, teens and right weight adults alike. The top surface is made from plush material and the bottom layer is made from 7 inch HD foam making it perfectly suitable for both light weight teens / kids as well as well-built adults.

While sizes up to 10 inches are best suitable for kids / teens and sizes above 10 inches are best fit for adults slightly on the heavier side, this 10 inch mattress is midway i.e. it is suitable for both kids / teens and adults alike.

So, if you have fast growing kids or teens at home then I would suggest you to buy 10 inch Olee mattress as it shall serve your needs for many years at least until your kids put on weight to move on to a newer one.

And in case you are looking for a mattress for adults or someone with regular back pains issues, then as per their weight you can opt for either 10 inch or 12/13 inch Olee mattress.

This 13 inch version from Olee Sleep has been specially designed for people who need an innerspring mattress owing to either back issues or who have above average weight.

Innerspring mattresses are in fact known to offer highest level of support and are a big solution to critical back pain issues.

However, one major concern being that these innersprings turn out to be noisy with usage and appear too firm for people with average or below average weights.

What is a Hybrid Mattress?

Every one of us want to enjoy the comfort of sleeping on a gel memory foam mattress but we are equally concerned whether the mattress supports every sleeping posture of ours. Does it align with our spine mainly and offer ultimate back support? Especially, for heavily built people.

While comfort helps us fall asleep faster and improves overall sleep quality, back support keeps our spine and vertebrae in proper shape. And the major issue with innersprings is that it is on the firmer side.

Considering pros and cons of both gel memory foam and innerspring, Olee Sleep has come with a smart hybrid design that includes gel memory foam layers, high density layers and innerspring coils.

Layer Construction – Olee Sleep 13 inch Galaxy Hybrid Mattress

This 13 inch mattress has a 5 layer construction in addition to polyester jacquard cover and fiber padding.

2 inch layer includes Cover & Fiber Padding – Polyester jacquard fabric cover absorbs moisture off the top surface.

Whereas, the beneath ventilated conjugnated fiber padding offers enhanced air flow and also serves as smooth transition cushion between the top cover and beneath soft memory foam.

1.5 inch soft memory foam – This is the layer that conforms to your body shape around pressure points like neck, shoulders and hips. It offers the ultimate experience of sleeping on a memory foam mattress.

1 inch Gel layer – Eco-friendly cooling I gel is infused into this layer. Instead of just sprinkling gel beads, Olee has infused liquid gel that offers super cool sleeping surface.

2 inch High Density (HD) foam – In regular mattresses this layer is no less than 5 inches in thickness. However, in this Olee 13 inch Galaxy version it has been intentionally sized at 2 inches as it is followed by bottom innerspring coils.

This layer, in fact acts as a cushion between the top I Gel layer and the beneath innerspring coils.

With high density visco-elastic foam, there is no chance of you to feel the innerspring coils, no matter how hard you try to press the above foams. Such is the insulation between the top layers and the base spring coils.

7.5 inch Heat treated Innerspring Coils: The primary duty of innerspring coils is to offer exception back support. These coils are heat treated tempered steel coils, much needed for people who have above average weight. However, there is this issue of noise as well as imbalanced motion transfer arising from innerspring coils.

Olee Sleep has addressed this issue with another smart design. They have encased all individual coils making them independent of each other and hence, isolation of motion transfer is achieved.

Conclusion

Olee 13 inch hybrid mattress costs the same like 12 inch gel memory foam mattress. However, the hybrid design is mainly centric to people who are used to sleeping on innerspring mattresses.

End of the day, the hybrid 13 inch version carries the same support of innerspring mattresses whilst offering the comfort of gel memory foam mattress.

Highly recommended for people with above average built and who have long-term issues with back and neck problems.
