We were looking for a new mattress for a while to replace an old memory foam mattress. After some research, we settled on the Bear. It arrived quickly, setup was super easy, and my bad back has been thanking me ever since. I’d recommend this to pretty much anyone who likes semi-firm to firm mattresses.” Jason B.
I liked my Bear Mattress after the first night, but now I can say that I love it after one month. It has helped my lower back aches and pains and my back is much less tight in the morning. I have recommended the Bear Mattress to all my family, friends and colleagues.” Jill R.
I’m not one to write reviews but I just have to write this one. My wife and I have been sleeping on our Bear mattress for about a month now. I have been sleeping better than I have in years. My wife and I are Novice Powerlifters and this mattress has definitely accelerated our recovery time. We don’t wake up as stiff and sore has before with our old mattress. It took a couple of weeks for my wife to adjust to this mattress for some it might be stiff at first. For me I loved it the very first night. We are extremely happy with our decision to purchase a Bear mattress. We bought the foundation as well, love that the foundation is very light. We are also a military family and move often.” Rodney L.
