Construction Differences

Let’s start from Zinus cooling gel memory foam’s cover. It is a knitted fabric designed to keep you cool and hence it is totally perfect for those who are not fond of sweaty wakeups. Then comes its most popular layer, the cooling gel memory foam which, as the name suggests, also aids in sleeping cool all night. Further this same layer has a gel foam which is able to contour your body according to your shape. Then comes 1.5” comfort layer which lets you sleep comfortable and cosy in the bed all night. Finally the high density base foam layer provides the best support to the upper two layers, so that your body feels balanced on the bed even when you move here and there while sleeping.

On the other hand, when you look at the knit cover of Tuft and needle Mint mattress, it has a thick and cosy feel. Its next 3” adaptive foam layer has a bit slower response to pressure by which it provides plenty of contour to your body. Next in the line is its 2” layer of poly foam which consists of cooling beads which gets activated when pressure is applied on the mattress. Lastly, the base layer of this mattress is of 6.5” which is designed to give adequate stability to the mattress.

Firmness/Feel Differences

The Zinus cooling gel memory foam mattress is rated 6/10 on the firmness scale which makes it a medium firm mattress. A very interesting thing about these mattresses is that it has various options for thickness and as the thickness increases so does the firmness of mattress making it plusher.

On the other hand if we talk about tuft and needle Mint mattress, it has also been rated 6/10 on the firmness scale which makes it closer to a softer side. Hence adding a gentle feel to it.

Sleep Experience

Zinus cooling gel memory foam provides chill throughout the night so that you are well-rested on a hot summer night. The cooling gel memory foam is specially designed for this purpose so that you can have a perfect sleep experience. On the other hand the Mint mattress of Tuft and needle has 30% graphite which gives excellent breath-ability to the mattress. Hence both of these mattress has a really good sleep experience.

Temperature Control

Even though it not clear that the Gel layer of memory foam in the Zinus mattress let the heat escape or not, but it surely is able to resist body heat so that the person can sleep cool all night. Further, its cover also has the ability to keep you cool at night.

On the other hand, the sink age in the comfort layer of Tuft and Needle Mint mattress could lead to some overheating, but the company has infused this layer with graphite which helps is absorbing and dissipating the heat as you sleep through the night.

This means that both of these mattresses are good at regulating temperature, regardless of how they do it.  

Motion Isolation

When the top two layers of Zinus cooling gel memory foam mattress are combined with its base layer, you get a mattress which is able to absorb tremendous amount of motion and give you a comfortable sleep. Same goes for the Tuft and Needle Mint mattress which is also capable of absorbing and dissipating motion. So you won’t be bothered if your partner moves at night with either of the mattresses.

Pressure Relief

The first two layers of Zinus mattress have been highlighted to relieve pressure points for all back and stomach sleepers. Its 4.5” high density base foam also has some ability to provide some extra pressure relief supporting your body weight.

Whereas, Tuft and needle Mint mattress is ideal for back and stomach sleepers, providing great pressure relief in the lumbar region. Moreover, it is an all foam mattress, ensuring that side sleepers have a great experience as it will contour their body right.

Resilience and Bounce

Not much has been mentioned about the bounce of these two mattresses. Both fall in the range of medium firm on the firmness scale and both are all foam mattresses. So people who like to have a bouncy mattress should consider coiled mattress rather than all foam mattresses.

Edge Support

One of the drawbacks of Zinus Cooling gel memory foam mattress is that it does not excel much at providing edge support. So heavier sleepers would like to look for coil mattresses rather than this all foam mattress.

This feature contradicts when it comes to Tuft and Needle Mint mattress as this mattress provide some real good edge support. This is impressive for couples as you can easily sleep on the edge of the mattress without fear of falling down.

Off-Gassing And Smell

Little to no smelling is reported in customer feedback of Zinus mattress. The Green tea added neutralizes the odor to give a cleaner sleep. On the other hand, feedback’s of Tuft and needle also report no smelling of the Mint mattress.
