I purchased this mattress for my 6'2" son so the xlong twin was great. He has been sleeping on the same mattress for quite a few years and really needed a new one. He almost didn't get up he slept so soundly and comfortably - sleeping in one position all night. The quality was excellent and arrived in perfect condition. After having read other reviews before purchase, I knew what to expect. As packaged it went right up our circular staircase - a standard mattress would have had to go through a window!
