I bought this mattress to replace a cheap foam futon mattress that had become very thin and uncomfortable. I've only had the new one for a couple of days, so I can't comment on how well it will stand up over time, but it is VERY comfy! I can't feel the bars of the futon frame underneath me when I sit on it or lay on it, and it has a very firm and "springy" feel that is similar to real furniture like a couch or chair. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase. For the price, this is a significant improvement over what we had. The only reason I'm giving this four instead of five stars is because the product description says that it is 10 inches thick, and it's really more like 6.5 inches. That on its own doesn't bother me (comfort is more important than thickness), but I ordered a futon cover to go with it, and specifically got the bigger size intended for futon mattresses that are 10 inches thick or thicker. The cover is a bit large and looks wrinkled and sloppy. If you're ordering a cover to go with this mattress, choose the smaller size.
I recently downsized and lost my spare bedroom. A friend gave me a futon frame and I wanted a good quality mattress so that my guests would be comfortable. I shopped locally and found the nicer ones to be $600-$800. This mattress is as nice as the best one I saw in the futon store. I find myself crashing in the living room on weekends and putting guests in my bed because it's so darn confortable. I am very happy with the purchase.

We have a really nice futon frame, but the mattress was 11 years old and battered after 3 kids, 2 dogs and 3 cats have lived on it. Didn't want to buy a new couch or futon, so decided to buy a nice mattress instead. This mattress is so thick and comfortable, the kids, now teenagers, want to sleep on it instead of in bed! So comfortable and beautiful. Bought a zip-on mattress cover that's washable. A must for a busy home. I'd definitely buy it again and highly recommend it to anyone.
I moved into my new Manhattan apartment and got the mattress within 4 days (at 2.95!) The only glitch was that they didn't register my tracking info on my account. The mattress smelled strongly, but I covered it because I use it for a bed, and it's fine. I bought a non-slip rug pad to keep it from slipping of the frame, and it works like a charm when I put it up!
I just received the mattress yesterday, but it appears to be very good quality - certainly as described in the listing. The depth was 8 rather than 10 inches and I had been counting on that (picked up from other customer reviews) because I wanted to reuse my outdoor cover, made for an 8 inch depth. But, I detected no issues as I placed it on my frame and then sat comfortably. So far I am very happy with this purchase.

I bought this product about 6 months ago to replace a regular foam futon (which I used as my main sofa) that had compressed over the years and was no longer comfortable. I was hoping for a more resilient and supportive surface to sit on. Initially the new spring mattress worked well as a sofa and the support was even and comfortable. But after just a few months, the springs began to wear unevenly, so in the most-used areas of the mattress we can feel certain springs poking at our, well, behinds. Makes for a really uneven surface. Six months isn't a long time, so while this might be OK as a back-room guest bed, it's not a good choice for frequent use as a futon couch. Would go back to my old foam mattress if given a choice.
This is misrepresented in that no way can it bend in the middle to be used as a sofa on a futon frame. I would not recommend it, unless you plan to lay it flat - and only flat. This product is only good as a bed mattress, not as a sofa, as pictures. I would have rated this product as "0", but was not available. And it's not 10" thick, maybe 7 or 8 at the most - definitely not 10.

- How accurate was the on site description of the product? This product does not bend, you know - like in the middle so it can be used as a sofa. Cannot bend it, not even with a heavy duty bungie cord.
We have has this for over two years and use it constantly as a couch and occasionally as a guest bed. It has held up well and is still comfortable.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The navy blue was the color we expected.

This by far was a pleasant surprise. I have had this mattress for over a year now, and it has been comfortable and held up to heavy use. I have it out in my screen room and it is used as a couch most of the time, and a bed when I have overnight guests. I have had no complaints from anyone. The inner springs make it thick and cushy.

We love this futon mattress. My husband works nights and sleeps on this futon so he doesn't wake me up. He loves the new mattress. It did smell "new" at first but that goes away. Also, it had a slight hump from being shipped but also went away and he is super happy with it. Great deal from OS!
I bought this mattress to replace the one that originally came with my cheap futon. After a few nights with my old mattress I could feel the bars of the futon and it was unbearable. I took a gamble and purchased this mattress. I ordered it on a Monday and had it by Wednesday! I have only used it for a weekend, but I slept very well. I cannot feel the bars anymore and find it to be much more comfortable than my old mattress. This was definitely worth the money. I am very happy I decided to try overstock, and very happy I bought this mattress.

This is a very nice matteress. For $$$bucks delivered, can't be beat. Color was excellent. No factory odor. My only criticism is it barely "lofted" to 8 inches. As it is, fine. I think 10 inches whould have been too thick. I weigh 220 pounds and this pad is comfortable. I'm happy!

The mattress was a great purchase. I've seen some people upset because the futon has lacked the quality of a couch or bed. Honestly, a futon is designed to be neither of those exclusively, but simply to have the capability of both. The futon is excellent for an occasional sleeper- we've used one in our basement during heavy storms- or in cases as how I use it now; as a couch/mattress for a gaming room for myself and friends to use intermittently. The mattress comes vaccuum-sealed, and will definitely have the raw cotton odor that is common with such sealed products (a outdoor/grassy type smell.) We were able to alleviate this smell largely with Fabreze and area room deodorizer. In warmer weather, opening a window would help as well. Probably something most noticeable in smaller rooms especially. This was our first foray into a spring-loaded mattress, and I was a bit dubious as to how well it would fold and stay on the futon. It actually folded rather easily, stayed well and certainly added more support than our previous all-cotton and cotton-foam hybrids.

I have read other reviews and was expecting an odor when we opened the package but, there was absolutely, no odor. The 10" size was on point. It's nice and thick and very comfortable. My son who is a 36 has been visiting and has been sleeping on it for the last week and says "it is probably the most comfortable futon he has ever slept on. All in all, I am very happy with my purchase....I love it. I have never been dissatisfied with any of my overstock purchases but, I do have a problem with Fed-Ex not updating their tracking system.

The description of this futon and its good attributes are close to true. However, this product smelled as though it had been treated with insect repellent. It smelled so strongly that I aired it out for two weeks before even attempting to sleep on it. For this reason alone I would not recommend this product.
i needed a futon matt to replace an old one in bad shape...i shopped around and i preferred to get one with coils inside as opposed to a cheap plain foam and fillers matt that would flatten out in no time ...this mattress had the coils and thick foam that i wanted for long lasting comfort and that is just what it delivers... im a big guy 6'1 260lb and i use this to sleep on mainly because the stairs leading to my apartment are treacherous and narrow so a real bed wont fit through to my apartment but a futon that can be brought in in pieces and assembled inside is just what i need ....Great mattress Lightning fast shipping ..A+++
The mattress is quite firm and does not fold into my futon as described. I tried sleeping on the mattress once Iputit on the futon, however, it was so uncomfortable because of the firmness, so I bought an inexpensive mattress foam pad at Walmart and put it on top of the mattress which made a huge difference. Now I can sleep on it very comfortably.
I throughly love this futon mattress. The burgundy color is perfect, just like in the picture. The material is so easy to keep clean and soft to sit on. We keep it in the so called "office" which we use for everything; guest room, crafts, office, and just watching TV. The granddaughters and I have totally enjoyed the sturdiness of this futon. One reason I bought it is because it is made in the USA, I've never been disappointed either.
