Perhaps you have been checking out the ViscO2 Ventilated Mattress Enhancer by Sleep Joy and are looking for a thorough review of this mattress topper. You’ve come to the right place. Let’s take a look.
We’ve said before that a memory foam mattress topper is a good idea when you have a mattress that lacks on comfort, but you can’t really afford a new mattress at the moment. The ultimate solution is probably to search for a new mattress, but a good topper can certainly bridge the gap in a cost effective manner.
There are several generations of the ViscO2 Ventilated Mattress Enhancer, and the price on Amazon ranges from about $60 – $100 depending on which one you buy. This should give you the basics on what to expect. As the name suggests, this product is pretty well ventilated. One concern most have when buying a mattress pad is that they don’t want to be hot and sweaty when they sleep. Personally that is one of the most frustrating things when I am trying to get rest is when I get overheated. While it is true that many foam mattress pads don’t do a great job of keeping you cool, the ViscO2 is an exception. However they make it work, you really can use this mattress pad and not get that stuffy feeling you likely hate. Even if you don’t go with this specific topper, make sure the reviews and features include comments about proper ventilation, as that is key in any pad you buy.
Another thing we like about this particular mattress pad is that it has an above average density for the price. The density per cubic foot is about 3 lbs. in this case, and is usually about 5 lbs for a really high end mattress pad. The lower you go on this number, the less density you have, which usually means a cheaper product.
As far as installation it is quite simple, which I would imagine that most mattress pads are. In our case it was shipped from Amazon, so it arrived fast and was bundled pretty small and weighed less than 20 lbs. We simply unrolled it and placed it on top of the current mattress we had, and covered it with fitted sheets. All in all, most people seem to agree that this topper is well worth it.
