Read all the reviews and decided to go with latex vs memory foam due to smell and chemical issues. There is definitely a distinctive smell which has yet to fade, despite letting it air out 2 days before putting it on the mattress. Not a deal breaker, but curious to see others write that there is no smell at all. I have been sleeping on it now for 3 weeks - not too hot, even in our current 95 degree heat wave. It is comfortable enough, but not exceptionally so. Maybe my expectations were unrealistic. Also feels like I have to change sides of the bed frequently so it will wear evenly, and I anticipate it will wear down permanently within the year. I feel I overpaid for what I got, and wish had gone with the memory foam for about half the price. Shipping was remarkably fast - it was on my doorstep in just over 24 hours!
