Pressure Test Results

We pressure tested the Kelburn mattress with small/petite, average and big/large body size people on their sides and on their back sleeping positions to measure the support and comfort.

The Kelburn tested well especially for side sleepers where we rated those sleeper positions a very solid ‘Recommend’. The mattress provided sufficient contouring support which is important to minimize pressure points. Pressure points cause you to become uncomfortable and that makes you toss and turn, preventing a good night’s sleep. While the mattress tested very well for side sleeper, it did not rate as highly on back positions – we still rate those positions ‘Good’.

This mattress lives up to your expectations for a hybrid mattress where the top layer of memory foam provides great contouring and the innerspring provides the support.

Conclusion

The Sealy Kelburn 2 Hybrid mattress tested well. We ‘Recommend’ the mattress for side sleepers and rate it ‘Good’ for back sleepers, so we say this bed is a good choice for everybody who likes a medium comfort bed.

The Kelburn 2 mattress is in the Sealy “Performance Line” collection, just below the “Premium” line. The Kelburn 2 has most of what’s in the more expensive Premium models except for the cool cover. This model has two layers of foam compared to the Copper II models (which have an added layer of Sealy Comfort Sense Foam). And it’s also $300 less expensive. So in our opinion, it tests very well and offers a great value within the Sealy Hybrid line of mattresses.
