This was a find! It's a wonderful replacement for my original futon mattress, especially combined with non slip tapes that go across the back slats of the futon. It now stays in place and is a great comfortable seat. I was planning on getting rid of the futon until I found this mattress. Yeah! A whole lot cheaper than a new sofa! And, a much better extra bed!
Of course it is not as comfortable as a regular full-size innerspring mattress; but for the occasional house guest, it works great. One house guest slept on it for several nights and said she was comfortable on it. She had the option to sleep on a regular innerspring mattress during her stay but stayed with the futon mattress.
Mattress arrived when stated and was everything i thought it would be , Great . Using it as a extra bed and sitting area in a family room , as noted the color of the fabric was a little greener than the sample color . Had no problem with shipping and mattress is very pleasant to sleep on . i rate it very good .
I got the 8" thick futon because it wil be my bed. I am glad I did. It maintains its shape when I lean it against the back of my dresser during the day. It fit comfortably into the full size futon cover I bought for it. When unpacking, be sure to unroll the plastic covering; don't try to cut through it :-) It is heavy and fluffing it is a challenge. I stand it on its side and let it fall, then flip it over about once/week. After 2 weeks, still love it!
Purchasing from Overstock was quite simple and the item shipped and arrived very quickly. They had excellent communication and the item appeared to be just as described. However....it was listed as 8 inches deep for the futon mattress. Be aware...this isn't quite that deep....it is closer to 6 inches. If I had known I would of gotten the 10 inch deep because this just isn't comfortable. You can feel the brackets that keep the mattress up on the frame. We had no problem with smells as others mentioned. In two days the compressed mattress had expanded, however just not to the full 8 inches. I would purchase again....but I would not keep the item next time if it wasn't as described. Unfortunately this time I needed it and did not have the time to return and reorder.
I am even considering purchasing a second one for our guest room! Got this for our RV to go to Burning Man with and found it just great. It is dense and weighs a bit, but that comes with the quality that goes with it. I looked around and think I made a great decision.
I am very happy with the futon mattress. It came in a very timely manner - 3 days. We let it puff up for 24 hours and then put it on the futon. It did have a smell at first, but after a few days I just wiped it down with a damp cloth and it went away. We had company recently and they felt it was very comfortable to sleep on. II would definitely recommend this to my friends.
Good price for a good value on a futon. Had no problem what-so-ever regaining loft once opened and flipped a couple of times withinn first 48 hours. Only slightly surprised at the dark color of the cover but planned to buy an additional cover for protection and decor anyway. Over-all we are very satisfied with this purchase! Very FAST delivery!

This was my first purchase from Overstock. I was very satisfied with my experience. I ordered the item Sunday night and it was delivered by Tuesday afternoon. The quality of the product is good compared to other futons I've owned. A friend at work is planning on getting one for her daughter.

My guests have been so happy since I replaced my old janky futon mattress with this one! The foam layers really make a difference. I would buy it again and sleep on it myself, no problem.

The only negative for this futon was the smell that came with it. I let it sit on our deck for 2 afternoons and everyone else said it was good - but I still can smell it a little. Will put some fabric sheets under the sheet to help. Good purchase and it came very fast !
