  iGel™ Pegasus

iGel™ Pegasus

 

What they say: 

Join thousands of others, who have discovered the joy of sleep with the unique advanced formula of iGel™ Enjoy a night that is not too hot, not too cold, just right... That’s because phase change crystals inside iGel™ respond to your body temperature to absorb excess heat when you are too hot or release stored heat when you are too cold – to keep you at a comfortable temperature. Plus the memory technology in iGel™ gently soothes away pressure points by contouring to your unique shape so that your weight is distributed evenly, while also promoting a naturally healthy body alignment.

What our tester said...

As a menopausal woman living through Britain's hottest summer in years I have been able to give the temperature-control technology in the iGel™ Pegasus mattress a very thorough test  and I'm happy to say it has passed with flying colours. 

I've been suffering for months with terrible night sweats (waking me up every hour) and had been dreading the idea of trying to sleep in the heat of summer. I admit was skeptical that the iGel™ Pegasus mattress could really be effective at keeping me cool but in desperation I agreed to give it a go and I couldn't be more impressed – for the past week I've had the best sleep I've had in years. 

As soon as you lie on on the iGel™ Pegasus mattress you can feel it subtly adjust to your body temperature. It feels cool rather than cold against your skin (akin to the refreshing feeling of turning your pillow over in the night). 

In terms of comfort I can't fault it either. With just the right degree of firmness the memory technology moulds to your body and supports it without feeling you're being engulfed by it. 

The iGel™ Pegasus mattress is well constructed with 1,800 pocket springs encased inside a protective foam wall and is Anti-microbial, anti-bacterial and hypo-allergenic friendly.

I do have two very small criticisms. Because it's so well made the mattress is heavy to manoeuvre and there are no handles which did make it difficult to lift into position. Also it's very deep, so if you use fitted sheets you may have to buy yourself a supply of extra deep ones to ensure a good fit.

Overall I'd heartily recommend the iGel™ Pegasus mattress for a quality (and cool) night's sleep.
