Before we get into this OTTY Pure Bamboo and Charcoal mattress review. We have to mention that we have been following OTTY from the beginning.
They had started with their popular Hybrid and now have a couple of mattresses on offer. From memory foam to budget to an award-winning hybrid, each targeting a different audience. Now they have released an innovative model, the OTTY Pure model with bamboo and charcoal.
Scroll down for the OTTY Pure bamboo and charcoal mattress review (SUMMARY AT THE END).
OTTY Pure Hybrid Bamboo Charcoal Mattress Construction
The OTTY Pure mattress is said to be UK's first bamboo memory foam mattress with charcoal-infused layers (as they claim), as you can imagine this is quite different to what you are to find in the UK bed-in-a-box market.
OTTY had taken their best selling Hybrid model and re-engineered the top comfort layer and its cover with bamboo and charcoal. Bamboo is marketed as a sustainable material to use in products nowadays and charcoal is said to include properties such as moisture absorption and odour elimination. But we will get into these layers further down this OTTY Pure mattress review.
Regarding safety, the foams used in all OTTY mattresses are CertiPUR and Europur approved. These are programs and certifications that inspect the properties of the polyurethane foams and set strict upper limits for certain components. OTTY products and mattresses are also fully compliant with the FIRA fire regulations set out in the UK. *All furniture products in the UK need to go through FIRA which is the UK's designated testing house to make sure they are not a fire hazard.
The OTTY Pure mattress is made up of 4 layers + 1 side support layer and a cover.
OTTY Pure Mattress Charcoal Cover
The OTTY Pure has a thick 500gsm knit cotton cover which can be removed to clean (dry clean or with a damp cloth). The cover is infused with bamboo which is a naturally strong yet also flexible making it a very popular material in covers in the bedding industry. Bamboo is also said to be hypoallergenic making it great for those with sensitive skin.
Additionally, OTTY has included a top side mesh piece to the cover which they have not yet introduced with their other mattress models. This should help with air circulation throughout the mattress which is especially great for those hot sleepers out there.
OTTY Pure Mattress Layers
1. Bamboo & Charcoal Memory Foam
This is the unique bamboo & charcoal-infused memory foam layer. These elements bring their own natural antibacterial, temperature regulating and odour eliminating properties. Making it a great top comfort layer.
2. Support Foam
A high-density support foam is placed just below the upper comfort layer and above the spring layer to act as a medium or transition between these layers.
This layer is known as Reflex foam, Reflex foam is known to be of a superior quality as compared to traditional polyurethane foam.
This layer is often used in hybrid mattresses to add additional support throughout the entire mattress.
3. Encapsulated Pocket Springs
OTTY has always made it clear that their hybrid mattress incorporates some of the best mattress springs through marketing tactics such as spring to foam ratios etc. For the OTTY Pure mattress, it is stated that it is 64% spring to 36% foam.
What sets these springs apart from the other beds in boxes, mattresses with free trials or even the other OTTY models is that they incorporated 16cm full-sized springs. You will find up to 2,000 of these in the OTTY Pure, of course, this depends on which size you get.
These springs are also encapsulated, which means that they are individually pocketed which reduces motion transference making it a great mattress for couples.
4. Side Support & Base Foam
A side foam layer is added to enhance edge support which memory foam mattresses are known to perform poorly at. What is unique about this layer as compared to other edge support systems used by rivals is that it is made with airflow vents or holes for increased air circulation.
Finally, a base foam layer for the upper layers to rest on and ensure a solid foundation.
How Thick Is The OTTY Pure Mattress?
All in all the mattress is 25cm in thickness. We also did some investigating for this OTTY Pure mattress review and found that it can withstand 22 stone or 139kgs per side, equating to a total of 44 stone.
The OTTY Pure is rated at about a 6.5 out of 10 on the virtual scale. This comfort level will, of course, will depend on your weight and sleeping behaviour but in general for the majority of UK sleepers it will feel not too soft and not too firm. The OTTY Flex is also regarded as a medium-firm mattress (also a bit cheaper and without springs).
If you are wanting a firmer feeling mattress, head on over to our OTTY Hybrid or alternatively our OTTY Essential mattress for a softer feeling mattress. Our Best Soft Mattress list can also be a great place to start looking for a cloud-like comfort level.
OTTY Mattress Design
The overall design of the OTTY Pure mattress is neutral with the side air vents giving it a modern touch which we have not yet seen before. What makes the cover unique is the "OTTY" brand being engraved into the top cover as well as some simplistic designs. This demonstrates it's not a generic cover which some mattresses use.
OTTY Trial Period and Warranty
As with most beds that come in boxes, the OTTY Pure as with all of their mattress models includes a 100-night trial. This gives you as the buyer over three months to try out the mattress at home and if you are dissatisfied within this time frame you can return it and receive a refund. We always recommend you read the fine print when it comes to mattresses with free trials. We noticed that the trial is only applicable when the Pure is bought through the OTTY website and not marketplaces like Amazon or eBay.
OTTY also guarantee for 10 years from when you receive the mattress. This will protect any manufacturing defects. Again, we recommend to read the fine print.
OTTY mattresses usually arrive in a 158cm x 44cm x 44cm box (approximate measurements, will depend on mattress size). The mattress comes rolled, vacuum-sealed in plastic for protection and then ultimately boxed.
Delivery is generally in the 1-3 business day range with peak seasons delaying production to 5-10 working days.
OTTY offer a Saturday delivery if you are not available during weekdays. This can be selected at the checkout for an additional fee of £20.
Additionally, they also offer premium delivery. They will deliver your new OTTY mattress to your room of choice. This is for a £10 fee.
Planned delivery is also available from OTTY. This is a great option for those who are very busy and need everything planned out. This is at a cost of £20.
