Firmness & Feel
The Apollo premium copper hybrid mattress is medium-firm. Our team rated it a 6 out of 10 on the mattress firmness scale. That’s to say that the Apollo is just a hair to the standard 6.5 rating for medium-firm mattresses.
Medium-firm mattresses are the best choice for most people because they accommodate different sleeping styles and body shapes. These mattresses tend to balance enough softness (to cradle your curves and pressure points) and support to promote spinal alignment.
Construction & Design
The Apollo Premium Copper Hybrid mattress is one of the most feature-rich mattresses by Goodmorning.com. If you’re new on the mattress scene, Goodmorning.com is the same company behind the Douglas bed and Novosbed- two of Canada’s top-selling mattresses.
The Apollo Copper hybrid mattress is 12” tall and it’s available in all six standard mattress sizes, from Twin to Cal King. In this Apollo mattress review, our team will go over what this mattress is made of, its firmness and feel and who it’s best for.
The Apollo hybrid mattress has a high-grade cover that Goodmorning.com calls PolarMax. This channeled cover is made with high-tech, moisture-wicking yarns that make it noticeably cool to the touch for optimal breathability and temperature regulation.
Do you want a mattress with a removable cover? Like other beds by Goodmorning.com, the top cover of the Apollo mattress is removable and machine washable.
The Apollo mattress has a dual-layer comfort system. Beneath the cover is a 2-inch layer of CopperGel memory foam. This is simply memory foam infused with copper and micro-gel beads. Copper and gel infusion makes this layer more responsive and contributes to its cooling performance. Copper is also known for its antimicrobial properties and should keep bacteria and viruses at bay.
The second 2-inch layer has open-cell technology that makes it breathable, thus offering you a cooler sleeping surface. The open-cell foam also adds a notable springiness to the bed, making it easy to move on the bed with significantly reduced motion.
||Aafter the first two layers of memory foam, you get to an inch of individually pocketed micro coils. This system of coils is supposed to add bounce into the mix. The spaces between the coils also increase airflow and allow excess heat to escape.
||the Apollo’s foundation consists of two individual layers of polyfoam totaling 7 inches. Right below the micro-coils is an inch of high-density polyfoam. This layer is firmer and denser than the comfort layers above and will cushion you from the denser layer below. Finally, you get to a 6-inch layer of dense poly foam that gives this mattress its overall stability.
The hallmark of a good mattress is its ability to accommodate your body shape, weight and sleeping style. In the next section of this Apollo mattress review, we give you our opinion of how it feels like to sleep on this bed.
The Apollo should top your list if you’re looking for the best mattress for back sleepers. Generally, people who sleep on their back want a mattress that lets them sink slightly but has enough support to prevent them from sagging. We think the Apollo mattress excels in this.
Back sleepers up to 130 lbs will experience some nice comfort and contouring as they sink into the memory foam layers. But we don’t expect them to sag excessively. Some back sleepers weighing above 130 lbs may experience some comfort. But they may not get enough support around their hips, and this could lead to aches.
Stomach sleepers are more prone to neck, back and shoulder pains. When sleeping on your stomach, your midsection tends to dig deeper into the mattress because this is where most of your body weight is concentrated.
The Apollo mattress is a good fit for stomach sleepers who weigh 130 lbs and below. Above this, you increase the risk of pulling your hips out of alignment with your shoulders, increasing pressure in the process.
Side sleepers will enjoy the Apollo mattress much more than other sleepers. The memory foam layers contour closely to their curvier parts, particularly their shoulders and hips, to minimize pressure buildup. The pocketed micro coils offer the initial support to promote proper spinal alignment.
In terms of weight, we’d say that Apollo is an excellent choice for side sleepers weighing up to 230 lbs. Heavier individuals may get some love in this mattress, but their hips and shoulders are likely to sink out of alignment.
Value for your Money
Starting below $1,000 CAD, the Apollo mattress is the priciest mattress by Goodmorning.com. However, this mattress is still considerably cheaper than the average hybrid mattress on the market today. Coming from a brand with a reputation for high-quality mattresses, this price tag speaks volumes about the value you’re getting for your money.
Essentially, the Apollo is a memory foam mattress that has been thoughtfully engineered to provide cushioning and pressure relief. This mattress also uses advanced materials and technologies to create a cooler sleeping surface without sacrificing its motion isolation properties.
It may not be the best mattress for heavy people. However, it will undoubtedly impress most lightweight and average-weight individuals looking for the best hybrid mattress.
Our Mattress Verdict
Overall, the Apollo Premium Copper Hybrid is a worthy contender if you’re looking for a comfortable memory foam mattress that doesn’t sleep so hot. From CopperGel-infused memory foam to pocketed micro-coils, most of the features in this mattress scream quality sleep. And thanks to its medium-firm feel, this mattress is likely to accommodate all of your sleeping styles.
Remember, the Apollo premium copper hybrid mattress has a 120-night trial period. This trial window makes your purchase risk-free because you can return the mattress if it doesn’t meet your sleep needs.
