5.3 lbs. rating?
First off I want to thank the support team for all their returned replies. I'm kinda up in the air though on rather or not to recommend this Queen 2" topper.
The pros on it are it has a slow response time on bouncing back into shape. Unlike other foams. The off gassing was really at a minimum of about 48 hours. A plus for sure. Now for the cons. The pad arrived a bit (what I would call, uncured) and was a little sticky and very soft to the touch. After putting a fan on it for 12 hours the stickiness went away. When arrived it was slightly damaged and a bit dirty in places. The size of my mattress is the standard queen size og 80" x 60" The pad turned out to be 81 1/2" x 61". After trying to put the (king size) fitted sheet over it the pad teared about an inch in two places at the end because of the 1 1/2" overlap. So to prevent it from tearing more I decided to cut off the extra length. Now as far as the firmness goes. I have owned a 3lb density, 4 lbs. density and a true 5 lbs. density in the past. Although I was assured by customer support this was indeed a 5.3 lbs. rating but they would not commit to any IDL rating on it, I am not 100 % in agreement. Facts being my older 7 year old 5 lbs. density, same size weighed in at 33 pounds and was firmer. You can still buy on eBay from a company that their's is 13 ILD rating and weighs 33 pounds. This one weighed in at 27.5 pounds and almost 30% softer. Just doing the math on lbs. per square foot @ 5.3 should tell one that 27 pounds is far too light. So in all fairness I must choose a yes or no on recommending this pad to others. I would say it's all up to one's preference. Do you like a softer, bottom out foam topper (BTW: I only weigh 165 pounds.) or do you prefer a more firmer feel? Myself I'll take one that gives to my natural curves rather then bottoming out. Also if your not in any hurry to receive it then that is ok. Myself I'm not that patient. Took just shy of two weeks to get it.
Ordered a custom sized mattress for my baby made of a cheap foam base with a memory foam top. This option saved hundreds of dollars and is very comfortable. The size was correct but it was about half and inch less depth than we ordered presumably due to laminating the two foams together. Shipping was free which also saved money. Our one major complaint was the off-gassing from the mattress. We couldn't use it until we got a mattress protector which seems to have sealed in the smell. We passed on getting custom fitted sheets from this company because their prices were unreasonable.
