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 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!
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.
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 did the color on site compare with the actual product? Site looks yellow, actual is tan/khaki
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality is fine
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.
Would you recommend this to a friend? No

We bought this for my son's bunk bed, it originally came with a 4 inch mattress that when you sat on it, you felt the bars through it, received the mattress and opened it up, put it on the bed and have loved it. I even slept on it a few times with my son and was surprised how comfortable it was.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Exactly as shown
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality
How accurate was the on site description of the product? only came out to a 9 inch mattress
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.
Was hesitant to buy mattress online, but the reviews were right on target. Smell not overwhelming, but did allow time to air out before use. Great mattress. Not your typical futon garbage. You can actually get a good night's sleep on this mattress.
We purchased this as a replacement mattress. This one is much better quality and much more comfortable than the original mattress our futon came with. We use it for guests and have good remarks about it.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It matched the description. We purchased the black color
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Decent quality. Much better than the mattress that we replaced. Pretty comfortable.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate description
This mattress is way better than the one that comes with most frames. We bought it for a spare bedroom that also is used for a hobby/fitness room and the mattress works great when the futon is in the couch position as well. Excellent value for the money!

Please tell us about the quality of the product. excellent product, and a great alternative to the mattress that comes with the average futon frame.

For a futon mattress to work with a tri-fold or A-frame, it must be able to make two bends on the short side ... inner spring futon mattresses including this one will only bend once and only on the long side therefore inner spring mattresses will only work on bi-fold or sofa style frames ... both the Premier as well as the Au Natural futon mattresses will work on a tri-fold or A-frame very nicelylutefiskfuton on Oct 9, 2013
