Stearns & Foster Estate Rockwell Luxury Ultra Firm Review

Updated April 14, 2021

If you're looking for one of the firmest mattresses you can get, read on... The Stearns & Foster Estate Rockwell Luxury Ultra Firm mattress is the firmest bed they make. This is a decent bed, but a bed this hard is really only for those that seek out very firm beds. While it's certainly not for everybody, if a hard bed fits what you're looking for, you can check out our test results and detailed review of its features below:

Comfort Scale Rating

The Rockwell Ultra Firm mattress is a super firm bed we rate 1.5 on our 10 point Comfort Scale (a 1 is very hard, 10 is super soft). It's only for those people that really like a very hard feeling bed. Otherwise, you should look for beds that are not as hard, even if you're interested in a firmer feeling mattress.

Pressure Test Results

We tested the Estate Rockwell Luxury Ultra Firm mattress in our facility with small, average, and large body size people on the side and back sleeping positions. The results give you an idea of how the mattress will work for you since we look at key body sizes. (Learn how we test)

The testing data for the Estate Hurston Luxury Firm mattress has to be understood by the fact that this is a very firm mattress. So the results will look bad for the majority of sleepers (which is the case) because the mattress is only comfortable for those who like a very hard feel. Given all that, the mattress was decent for most body positions. You can see there's not much surface area under the body because the surface is so firm. There's too much pressure for a large side sleeper, so we don't recommend the bed for those situations. Ultimately, a mattress like this only feels good for those who like the hard surface. And if that's your preference, then that's what matters. The test results are not as relevant in a situation such as this.

The Main Features in Detail

Stearns & Foster Rockwell Mattress Cutaway


  1. Tencel Cover 

    The fabric cover is made from Tencel plant fiber that comes from the eucalyptus plant.  Tencel fabric is soft and stretchable and improves airflow and also helps wick away moisture.

  2. Indulge Memory Foam

    The Rockwell collection includes the ultra-premium Indulge Memory Foam, which is made by Tempur-pedic.  This material helps the mattress softly conform to your body's curves.

  3. IntelliCoil

    The innerspring is a coil-in-coil, dual-stage design, that is both soft and supportive depending on how much weight is on each individual coil.

  4. Precision Edge + Air Vents

    An edge support system makes the mattress sleepable to the edge of the bed. The pocketed coil sleeves help airflow and allow cooler sleeping.
