Set up test

The Stratami mattress by Essentia took us just under two minutes to set up.  Essentia was a little heavy on the staples, making the box difficult to open. The mattress was very floppy and hard to maneuver.

So for our setup test, Stratami gets a 6 out of 10.

Motion Transfer Test

Part A - The Humans

Although, the Stratami kept motion minimal, RJ and Asha still noticed when their partner was moving. They gave it a collective score of 7.75.

Part B - The Wine

The wine stayed fairly still but we definitely detected some wobble (which we’d prefer staying on the dance floor). So we gave it a 7.

So for a total motion transfer score, we gave Stratami a 7.4 out of 10.

Edge Support Test

Part A - The Shoe Test

Offering a decent amount of support, the Stratami scored an 8.5 for the edge shoe test.

Part B - The Side Test

RJ and Asha found the edge of the Stratami mattress safe and sound! No fear of the floor here. So for the edge support side test, the Stratami scored a 9.25.

So Stratami gets a 8.9 out of 10 for edge support.

Pressure Relief Test

We saw mainly blue and green on RJ with some hints of yellow. So we gave him an 8 for pressure relief.

We saw even less yellow on Asha, so we gave her an 8.5.

So for a total pressure relief score, Stratami gets a 8.25 out of 10.

Spine Alignment Test

Those are some nice spines. There was only the slightest curve near the base of RJ and Asha’s necks.

For spine alignment, Stratami gets a 8.5 out of 10.

Responsiveness Test

The Essentia Stratami mattress seems to understand its sleepers. RJ and and Ashs noticed it quickly adjusting to their movements between sleeping positions. 

So Stratami gets a 8.75 out of 10 for responsiveness.

Foundations

Any Essentia Mattress works best on a flat, rigid surface that allows airflow. However, it will work on any firm, flat surface. This includes a box foundation, flat frames, slats (that are no more than 3 inches apart), adjustable frames or even the floor.

A look inside

A look inside the Essentia: Stratami mattress

  • Organic cotton cover – this removable cotton cover makes cleaning easy.
  • Protective Liner – Aka the Bucaneve Wrap, is a thin protective liner that reduces wear and tear overtime
  • 3’’ Contour Latex – This organic, comfort layer is dome-shaped to assist in pressure relief. It is designed to give pillow-top comfort without using wool or cotton.
  • 5’’ Support Latex-Foam – This organic base layer is made of latex foam to provide lasting durability and support.

What Stratami customers have to say

  • “Essentia bills this as a “Firm Organic Latex Mattress” so I was surprised at how soft it actually is. That said, support was quite good and the mattress slept quite cool. The edge support was just average. At the end of the day I “liked” the mattress but didn’t feel that it improved sleep quality compared to my old coil mattress. I send it back at the end of the trial (only 90% refund, which I knew going it). Essentia’s customer service is not good. Took MULTIPLE emails to get them to respond to the return request. It took at least another month for them to send someone, and over a month later still no refund.” -JH
