Hi. I’m Bridget, a certified sleep science coach 
and mattress expert here at Sleepopolis. And   Today I am going to be testing the Bear 
Elite Hybrid mattress. I’m going to put   It through a variety of tests to let you know 
how it performs on our Sleepopolis scorecard. But before we dive in here are some quick 
facts you should know about the Bear Elite.   It’s a cooling hybrid mattress with both foams and 
coils and it has a zone support system which means   There are different levels of firmness throughout 
the bed to support spinal alignment. It comes in   Three different firmness levels: Luxury firm, 
luxury plush, and extra firm. So you can choose   Your preferred level. Today, we’re going to be 
testing the luxury plush version. A queen size   Mattress at full retail price is currently about 
$2,400, but I do want to point out mattress prices   Change all the time and we also always have 
coupons for you. Just click on the link in the   Description below. Now, the Bear Elite will ship 
for free, and it comes with a 365 night trial,   And a lifetime warranty. It arrives compressed 
in a box, and a queen size weighs 110 pounds.   So you’re going to want a helping hand getting it 
set up. My co-worker, Amelia, so kindly helped me   Do that. It wasn’t too difficult to unbox with two 
people. I love watching these mattresses expand   Like you can see it doing here. But give it a 
day or two to let it fully expand and release   Any off-gassing smells. Our first test is a 
big one if you share the bed with a partner or   A pet. The motion transfer test. Motion transfer 
is how movement carries from one side of the bed   To the other. So think if you’re sleeping on this 
side of the bed and your partner is tossing and   Turning on the other side. There’s no reason to be 
woken up by that, so we’re gonna start by testing   This out with our red wine test. It’s not only 
tasty, but also visual. I put a glass of wine on   One side and then had Amelia move around on the 
other side to see how it affected it. These were   Pretty good results. I’d say a 4 out of 5 for 
now, but I want to test it a little further. So   I’ll take away the red wine and move around on the 
bed to see how much movement Amelia feels on the   Bed. You know, get a real human in there and she 
said she gives it a four out of five. So putting   Our scores together, I’m going to give the Bear 
Elite a four out of five for motion isolation. Next up is our edge support test. Edge support 
is a measure of how well the perimeter of a bed   Supports weight. So think if you ever sit on the 
edge of the bed or you like to sleep near it.   The Bear Elite has edge to edge coils along its 
perimeter, so they should help it perform well.   To start the test, I sat on the edge and tied my 
shoes. I felt good here with only a little bit of   Sinkage, so I’d give it a three and a half out of 
five for sitting. Then I laid and moved around on   The edge of the bed, and I felt it was stronger 
laying down. Scoring it a four and a half out   Of five. This bed has some good edge support. 
Overall I would give it a four out of five. Alright now, it’s time for the pressure map 
test. Although, I can tell you that this bed   Feels cushiony, and it has top layers of foam, 
the pressure map takes it even further. It uses  

Heat mapping technology to show where 
pressure is building across my body.   When I lay on a mattress here’s what you need 
to know. When you’re looking at the results,   Blues and greens are low pressure oranges and 
reds are high pressure. You’re going to want   To see low pressure around your back hips and 
shoulders if you sleep on your side or back.   When I laid on my back, I saw blue pretty much 
all throughout. On my side, there was also blue   And green. So overall I give the Bear Elite a five 
out of five for pressure relief. For back sleepers   And a four and a half out of five for pressure 
relief for side sleepers. Now I will add that   It’s not about pressure for stomach sleepers. 
We’re going to talk about them here soon.   So let’s talk about the different sleeping 
positions and how they test on this bed.   Every sleeping position is going to want to have 
their spine in alignment but they’re going to   Need different characteristics out of a bed to 
make that happen. Stomach sleepers need a firm   Mattress to keep their hips elevated and spine in 
alignment. I consider the Bear Elite in the luxury   Plush firmness level about a medium firm mattress. 
So I think stomach sleepers will want something   Firmer they might do better on the extra firm 
version of the Bear Elite instead of the luxury   Plush. I’d give it a 3 out of 5 for stomach 
sleeping. Side sleepers need some contouring   Around their shoulder and hip, and although I 
felt really good on my side on this mattress,   You could go for the even softer version if you 
wanted to. But I’d give it a four and a half out   Of five for this version for side sleeping. Back 
sleepers need a comfortable and supportive option.   They would do great on this bed, so I 
give it a 5 out of 5 for back sleeping. Now let’s do the responsiveness test. This shows 
how easily you can move around on the mattress   Which is important if you’re a combination 
sleeper or if you want to get in and out of   Bed without any struggle. Since I don’t sink in 
too much when laying on the Bear Elite mattress.   And it has a little bounce to it. I 
can move around pretty effortlessly   And when I move into a new sleeping 
position I feel like the bed adjusts well.   Because of all this, I give the Bear Elite a 
four and a half out of five for responsiveness.   Okay now that we’ve gone through all of our tests, 
let’s crank the numbers and give the Bear Elite   One overall score along with the scores 
you heard me mention in this video. I’m   Also going to bring in other details like its 
materials, its warranty, its cooling capabilities,   And give those a score as well. So when 
I put it all together and average it out   The Bear Elite gets a 4.42 out of 5. I hope you 
found this review helpful. If you need any more   Information and want to see more in-depth mattress
