Tuck designs you a mattress just for you.
Considering that every individual has different sleep patterns and seek something “unique” in a mattress, their idea of customizable mattress is really fascinating.
The company has worked with some of the top mattress manufacturers to design the highest quality elements you will find in a mattress.
They reached out to mattress supply manufacturers and partnered with the best in the industry.
Tuck utilizes both memory foam and pocketed coils to get closer to their goal of matching each individual to their ideal mattress, regardless of their body composition.
The final result of all their hard work is a mattress that will give you the night of sleep you have been dreaming about for a long time.
However, in order to build the customizable mattress, the company asks you to go through their comprehensive Sleep Test Online.
The results provide them with the necessary information to design your mattress, in order to meet your exact requirements based on your specific sleep preferences and body composition.
The test considers five main areas including, feel, cooling, motion isolation, conforming ability, and support to provide you a mattress that simply works the best for you.
What Type of Mattress is the Tuck?
The Tuck mattress is the next generation of mattress on the market today. It is a completely customizable bed that is built based on your sleeping habits and body type.
Each side of the mattress is made in a particular way to cater to you as well as your partner’s sleeping preferences. No matter what configuration you select, you will end up with a very comfortable mattress.
This is because Tuck uses quality materials throughout.
The uniquely engineered coil systems and high density foams of the mattress guarantee that you will have the best sleep of your life.
Tuck harnesses the best of both worlds in order to offer the optimal sleep experience. You benefit not only from the bounce and support of pocketed coils but also take advantage of the cooling and pressure relieving characteristics of latex and foam.
All Tuck beds are 11” in thickness. the components will vary based on your Sleep Test result.
Once the design and manufacturing is complete, the Tuck mattress is then delivered with the individual support, firmness, and comfort preferences and requirements that were defined in the questionnaire right to your doorstep.
How Firm is it?
The Tuck is a unique mattress as there is no pre-set level of firmness that can be assessed based on factory design.
Tuck also offers dual comfort for no extra charge. This means that the bed is split down the middle and each side is customized. Great for couples with different sleep preferences.
The Tuck mattress can be expected to fall anywhere between 5 to 7 on the typical firmness scale.
It will be the most optimal for comfort and regardless of your sleeping position, it is specially designed to work for you, therefore making it great for stomach, back, and side sleepers.
So you do not have to try and select what is best for you, the company will take all your assessments and make sure it is the best feel.
The mattress is also great for bulkier people who require more support.
Your weight is taken into consideration and throroughly worked into the engineering of the mattress. Supportive, dense foams are used to make sure your comfort needs are properly met.
How Many Layers Does it Have?
The Tuck is an 11″ mattress that is made up of pocketed coils, copper gel infused memory foam, micro coils, and latex.
However, the construction varies based on the requirements and preferences on the online questionnaire which is utilized to configure the mattress before it is crafted.
The following layers are custom configured through the sleep quiz you take on the website to accomplish the right degree of personalization for your sleep requirements.
- Copper Gel Infused Memory Foam: This top layer has small pieces of copper inserted into a cooling gel memory foam with an IFD (Indention Force Deflection) of 5 to 15 and density of 3.5 lb. It is the conforming comfort layer that provides the user with a conforming feel while also regulating their body temperature.
- Dunlop Latex Foam: This is the second layer that is created using a continuous pour process which removes any unevenness caused by air pockets and does not require the troublesome glue seams that are present in Talalay latex. This is another comfort layer that relieves pressure and creates a responsive feel for ease of movement. It has an IFD between 6.5 to 15.5 and density of 3.5 lbs.
- Micro Coils: This is a 1″ layer of micro coils created out of 1,386 coils, individually sheathed in fabric. This layer not only provides pressure relief but also allows for uniform distribution of weight.
- Pocketed Coil Support Core: This is the next layer which is supported by 1,037 individually sheathed 6″ Quantum coils. The perimeter of the mattress is lined with a higher gauge set of coils that offers the edge support that conventional foam mattresses lack. This layer is the core of the Tuck mattress and offers the support required for proper alignment of the body.
- Transition Foam: When moving from coils to foam, the manufacturer utilizes a transition polyfoam, in order to get the most out of the comfort layers. This layer creates a smooth transition from the feel and texture of the comfort foams to the support of the coils. This layer has an IFD between 22 to 38 and density of 1.8 lbs.
- Base Foam: This is 1″ of dense base foam that creates a flat, even surface for the mattress to easily sit on any foundation and a solid surface for the coil system to sit on. It is a poly foam layer that has an IFD between 41 to 62 and a density of 1.8 lbs.
How are Motion Transfer and Sinkage?
The mattress varies in terms of the amount of motion transfer and sinkage depending on how you configure it.
However, the top layer of the mattress uses memory foam, which typically has the best motion isolation properties.
The latex in the comfort layer also adds resilience that prevents sinking. But it has placed memory foam above the latex which too allows for minimal motion to be transferred.
Additionally, the innerspring core used in its construction helps to prevent the sleeper from sinking into the bed.
Both coil systems are individually pocketed, which implies each coil is sheathed in fabric and this alone greatly mitigates any motion transfer.
Part of the sleep quiz also includes an assessment on how sensitive the sleeper is to motion, and the Tuck mattress can be adjusted accordingly.
And as a result, most sleepers do not have any issues with motion transfer on this mattress.
The individually pocketed coils use a higher gauge around the perimeter of the mattress to ensure edge support.
The Tuck mattress goes an extra mile in building a more durable, dense edge. Sleeping on the mattress you are able to feel a persistent feel across the entire surface and also not experience the “rolling out” of the bed feel.
The materials perform just as intended to alleviate any vibrations.
Overall, the motion transfer is good and you may not experience any disruption in your sleep or shaking of the mattress when your partner changes positions while sleeping.
Does the Tuck Sleep Hot?
The Tuck mattress does not sleep hot and consumers report that they did not feel hot at all during their sleeping test of the mattress.
This is mainly because part of the customization quiz for every mattress involves evaluating a sleeper’s typical sleep temperature and then making adjustments to prevent any excess heat retention issues.
Copper has natural anti-microbial properties, and it is also a natural heat dissipator, thereby keeping the mattress cool and clean.
The combination of latex, coil construction, and copper gel infused memory foam does an excellent job at minimizing heat buildup during the night as compared to other mattresses.
Furthermore, coils by design offer better flow of air and hybrid mattresses are usually much cooler than most latex or all foam mattresses.
One of the great things about coil systems is that they allow for any heat to dissipate and barely any heat retention.
The cover consists of a breathable rayon polyester blended fabric that is soft as well as moisture wicking. This in turn helps maintain a perfect temperature while sleeping.
Does it Have any Smell?
When your Tuck mattress arrives, take it out of the box and set it up where you will be sleeping.
During this process of unboxing the mattress, you may notice a slight “new mattress smell”, which is quite minimal, if any at all.
Off gassing is usually associated with memory foams, however, this hybrid mattress is less than 50% memory foam and only utilizes CertiPUR-US certified foams which do not contain any noxious chemicals.
Also, once the mattress is allowed to unroll and take shape, the smell should dissipate within a few hours.
However, if you are more sensitive to certain smells, allow the mattress to breath up to 12 hours before actually using it.
Overall, the mattress fares well in this category.
Does it require a Foundation?
No, the Tuck mattress does not require any specific foundation! When setting it up, you can place it on any adjustable base, a solid grid, a box spring, a slatted base, or even on the floor.
The foundation must provide an even, flat surface that supports the weight of the mattress as well as the users.
The Tuck mattress greatly surpasses its foam counterparts on any adjustable base. The fabric-sheathed support core coils are able to move in any direction necessary and are also a great fit for this type of base.
What type of Cover does it have?
The cover of the Tuck mattress is fresh looking and very clean. It is not only aesthetically sleek and soft but is made up of 37% recycled material.
It uses a yarn known as REPREVE, which is made up of recycled water bottles.
For a queen size mattress, about 24 water bottles are used to craft the cover of the Tuck mattress.
It is a high quality cover which is constructed from a mixture of poleyster and rayon fabric that offers additional cooling properties, thereby providing a cool sleeping surface.
What is the Best Way to Care for the Tuck?
The cover of the mattress is washable, but it is recommended not to remove it. This is because it has been tailored according to your personal preferences and perfectly fits over your mattress components, and thus it is not very easy to get back on.
It is suggested to use a mattress protector on top of your Tuck mattress to protect it from a plethora of things such as, dust, dirt, and stains.
In addition to this, you can use a damp cloth to blot out anything that may get onto the cover.
Will it Last long?
Tuck mattress is made in the US and incorporates multiple higher quality components into the mattress that will make it hold up over time.
The company prides itself in the workmanship and uses only the finest materials.
According to research, this hybrid mattress made up of memory foam as well as coils will last 28% longer as compared to a mattress made solely out of foam.
This implies you can look forward to thousands of restful nights of sleep in your future.
Each of the foams of the mattress meets or exceeds the company’s minimum standards for density, and the microcoils and innerspring coils also appear to be constructed with quality materials.
The latex foam used on the Tuck mattress is also considered a durable and high quality material.
Size & Shipping
The Tuck mattress is 11″ in height and the sizes available are as follows:
Once you have placed the order, the company will begin customization within the next business day, and it will take 5 to 7 days to properly set. Furthermore, the dual comfort option will take an additional 2 days.
The mattress is then sent through a machine that compresses it down to 1″ with the coils compressing on top of each other to maintain their integrity.
It is then heat sealed, folded, rolled, wrapped in plastic, put into the box ready to be shipped.
The mattress will take 2 to 5 days before arriving. Shipping is totally free of cost within the 50 United States.
When the mattress arrives, it will be packed in a box and you will have to remove its plastic covering in order to allow the mattress to breath.
The box comes with handles in order to help you bring it into its new home.
You must also be prepared to wait for at least 24 hours for the mattress to inflate complete.
145 Night Risk-Free Trial and Guarentee
The company offers a sleep trial of 145 days. This allows for a period of time to let your body adjust and make sure it is the appropriate mattress for you.
The 145 night trial period is more than enough time and also above the standard 100 night sleep trial most companies offer.
The company asks you to allow your body at least 30 days in order to adjust to the new mattress.
Considering the Tuck mattress is crafted keeping you in mind, a sleep trial period does not seem necessary. However, if the mattress does not work, the company is quite easy to work with and will address any issues.
After the period of 30 days if you still feel that the mattress is not appropriate for you, the company will arrange to have it picked up from your home and donated to a local charity.
Once the mattress is donated the company will process your refund and you will receive the full amount of your purchase.
The mattress is covered under warranty for 11 years, one month and one day, which is more than the standard warranty of 10 years most mattress companies offer.
This warranty extends to mattress purchased directly from the company and is valid only for the time period the mattress is owned by the original purchaser of the product.
The company also asks you to keep the copy of the receipt as proof of your purchase.
Tuck warrants the mattress sold to you against any defects in workmanship and material.
This includes any manufacturing defect in the assembly of the mattress, a physical flaw in the mattress despite proper handling and normal usage, or deterioration causing the mattress to have a visible indentation greater than one inch that is not linked with a sag or indentation which results from use of the mattress without proper support.
However, the warranty does not cover mattress sold by unauthorized resellers, a normal increase in softness of the mattress, and physical damage or abuse to the mattress. For instance cuts, burns, tears, or liquid damage.
If you believe your mattress is covered under the company’s warranty, you must return it at your cost and also provide the company with proof of your original purchase.
If the mattress is covered under the company’s warranty, the company will reimburse you for shipping costs up to $100 and also repair or replace the mattress at their opinion subject to the same warranty.
