Nest Bedding ActiveX Mattress Review
This post was last updated on July 4th, 2019
Overview: ActiveX Mattress is mattress by the rapidly growing online mattress company Nest Bedding which is probably one of the coolest mattresses you can find.
ActiveX Mattress is great if you
Want to sleep cool – ActiveX has the type of construction with its phase changing cover, convoluted transition foam and activated Energex which will leave you sleeping cool and deals greatly with heat retention. It is probably one of the coolest mattresses we’ve reviewed so far.
Seek a good value for money buy– ActiveX is definitely a great deal considering the premium foams and fabrics used for its build.
Sleep in different positions – Whether you are a back, stomach or side sleeper, the ActiveX will cater for your needs and conform well to your body. Perhaps side sleepers are the ones who might feel they are getting too much support from the ActiveX.
Fancy great body contour and conformance – There is no chance you will feel stuck in the ActiveX, but rather the body molds to the mattress and it conforms really well.
Prefer a slightly firmer feel – Ranked at a 6.5-7 out of 10 on the firmness scale, the ActiveX does feel a bit more firm than average, however, it still provides the much-wanted comfort and pressure relief you need to relax after a long day. In addition, the level of support you get is exceptional regardless of your sleeping position.
Enjoy a floating feel– What you get with the ActiveX is more of a floating support feeling and less of a deep sinkage and hug.
ActiveX Mattress is not the best deal if you
Require a mattress that has extremely strong edge support – Although it deals well with edge support, if you frequently engage in any type of activity which requires sitting at the edge of your mattress, then we would not recommend the ActiveX.
Prefer the innerspring feel – This is by far not ideal if you are looking for an innerspring mattress. Being familiar with, and loving the innerspring feel, means you will not like the floating experience of the ActiveX, so you should think of another option.
So, what is the ActiveX Mattress made of?
The ActiveX Mattress is 11 inches thick and consists of:
Top layer: 2″ of ActiveX Luma Cooling Foam which is designed to offer great comfort, contour for the body and a hugging feel.
Second Layer: 2″ of Energex Gel Response Foam which is basically a polyurethane foam with elements of both memory and latex foam. This structure caters for optimum pressure relief, good response and bounce effect for the mattress.
Third Layer: 2″ Convoluted Air Flow Layer which can provide with a soothing transition from the top comfort layers to the firmer base layer below. A highlight of this layer is how it is convoluted, which means it has cut grooves and channels, to maximize breathability of the mattress.
Fourth Layer: 5″ High-Density Support Base Layer, designed as the foundation for the whole mattress through substantial support and shape it provides.
Highlight: The cover in the ActiveX Mattress is definitely a highlight and spot on both aesthetically and practically wise. It features a phase change fabric which means it can absorb/store body heat, thus ensuring a better temperature to sleep without disruptions. It therefore acts as a temperature regulator.
In addition, the cover comes with a thinner build to facilitate breathability of the different layers of foams.
Aesthetically speaking, the ActiveX features some of the most unique and appealing covers we’ve come across so far. It seems that Nest Bedding took the design of the cover to the next level with this one!
Added advantage: You wouldn’t believe it, but there are 3 different color schemes available to choose from (minty green, icy blue, and spicy red) in the ActiveX Mattress on top of the diamond design. Sounds and looks amazing really!

Overall, the Nest Bedding ActiveX is a mattress which will not disappoint you as far as comfort, body contour, and responsiveness. The combination of foams in the different layers makes for a great overall feel.
In particular, the Phase change technology seems to function really well and does help the body to adapt and mold to the memory foam.
Therefore, the ActiveX mattress does a great job dealing with pressure relief especially for the sensitive parts of the body like the head, neck, and hips, offering both contour and support for the body due to the top comfort and response layers.
As the name implies, the ActiveX mattress is specifically targeted to athletes or people who have an active lifestyle and appreciate the way the mattress conforms to their body.back to menu ↑
The ActiveX Mattress has a medium to a bit more firm feel, ranking it somewhere at a 6.5-7 out of 10 in the firmness scale (10 is the most firm), depending on the sleeper’s weight.

Sinkage and Motion Transfer
Due to the fact that it feels a bit firmer, the ActiveX does not have as much sinkage perhaps as other online foam mattresses. Still, the sinkage experienced is such that it provides great pressure relief which is pleasant and not common as more firm mattresses struggle to offer good pressure relief.
Apart from supreme comfort and the cooling technology, this mattress is exceptional when it comes to motion transfer, as you will hardly sense any movement due to the dense foam in the multiple top layers.back to menu ↑
The ActiveX Mattress is quite supportive and provides the perfect amount of give for side sleepers in particular to deal with aches in shoulders and hips, which are the most sensitive areas.
It does, however, support equally well any sleeping position, and we doubt you will feel any sort of discomfort from sleeping in this mattress.
It is common for universal comfort type of mattresses to not being able to handle heavier sleepers really well. However, the Nest Bedding ActiveX mattress is one of the best mattresses for heavy people and couples.
You will be happy to hear that this mattress does an exceptional job as far as edge support. The multiple layers of foam used for ActiveX Mattress following a redesign, as well as the rest of the mattresses in the Nest Bedding Line, contribute to an improved result in terms of edge support.
Value for money
Priced at $999 for a Queen, the ActiveX cannot be considered expensive, especially given the premium materials and structure used for this mattress. It is rather averaged priced to a bit higher than its competitors.
Here’s an overview of the pricing depending on size:
Doesn’t Sleep Hot
The Phase change technology which is included in the thin cover of the ActiveX, together with the convoluted transition AirFlow foam and the Energex foam, contribute to a sleeping surface which does not retain heat.

So, no need to be concerned about sleeping hot with the ActiveX. Prepare yourself for a cool experience you will love!
