Propel Mattress Review

The Propel Sleep by Brooklyn Bedding is a mattress with a lot going on (Just what is “European performance fabric”? Does Propel’s Upcycle Technology™ really deserve that “™”?) The construction of the Propel is one of the more interesting in its class, and I am excited to see just how much of the Propel’s hype is real.

Are we dealing with a bed that truly gives you a “smarter way to sleep”? Just why does the inside of the Propel have so many layers? We will cut through all of the layers of this bed (quite literally) answer all of these questions and more.

My full review of the Propel bed is below. I also have a quick and dirty version for those of you who may be in a hurry. Click here to jump to the summary!

Is Propel Sleep a Good Mattress for You? 

The Propel claims to have many proprietary technologies in its six layers. The product actually says that it can use your body heat to create a better night’s sleep for you. This is good news for those of us who generate a lot of body heat at night, but is the Propel the mattress that actually cracked the code here? We’ll find out by first looking at the materials and how the mattress performs.

But first, here’s who I would recommend the Propel Sleep mattress for and who should consider a different mattress.

Who I recommend Propel Sleep mattress for

  • I would recommend the Propel for hot sleepers. This mattress sleeps really cool because of the phase change material in the cover, the latex alternative top layers and its hybrid structure.
  • If you are a side or combo sleeper, the soft-medium firmness and great mobility will likely be good for you.
  • Couples should find the Propel attractive because of its ability to isolate motion.

Who I don’t recommend Propel Sleep mattress for

  • If you are a strict stomach sleeper, you may not get the support that you need for your back with the Propel.
  • If you are a heavier sleeper (above 250 lbs.), this mattress may simply be too soft for you.

How Firm is the Propel Sleep Mattress?

Let’s take a realistic look at how the Propel actually feels. Body shape, size, and weight all contribute to how you’ll feel on a mattress. You’ll be hard pressed to find two people with the exact same assessment of any bed! Keeping this in mind, I tested the Propel with coworkers large and small. What you see below is the average of how the Propel felt for all of us.

Propel Firmness
Propel Firmness

Firmness is the first thing we test for on a mattress. We rate firmness from 1 to 10 with 10 being the firmest ranking and 1 being the softest. For us, 6.5 is the median — the industry standard for medium firmness. We found the Propel to be a hair to the softer side of the midpoint, so we gave it a 6/10.

When lying on my back, I immediately felt myself sinking into the mattress. Even so, I did not get the “huggy” contour that I usually expect when this happens. As mentioned above, the Propel does not have a memory foam comfort layer that would provide this kind of effect.

Rolling around to my side showcased one of the more interesting features of the Propel. The comfort layer’s quick response to pressure and the springs in the mattress create a surprising level of bounce. I definitely didn’t expect this considering how soft the mattress felt when I first laid down.

My shoulders and hips got a good bit of pressure relief, which is usually important for strict side sleepers. However, this contouring caused my hips to sink into the mattress a bit too much when I rolled over onto my stomach. As a result, I cannot recommend the Propel for strict stomach sleepers. In most cases, when the hips sink into the mattress too much, the back bends in a way that moves the spine out of alignment with the rest of the body. This can lead to aches and pains when you wake up. The total support level may not be enough for heavier sleepers as well (I weigh 190 lbs. and found myself quickly sinking into the mattress on my stomach and back).

Propel Sleep Mattress Performance

No matter what materials are in a mattress, performance usually breaks down to just a few tests. We have all of those tests ready for you—keep reading to see how the Propel performed.

Testing the Propel Sleep Mattress in Different Sleeping Positions

Because different body types and different sleeping positions will change how someone feels on a mattress, I’m going to go over how I think the Propel Sleep mattress will work for different people, based on my experience and my tests.

Is the Propel Sleep a Good Mattress for Light Sleepers (Under 130 lb)?

  • Light Back SleepersI think light back sleepers should be comfortable on the Propel. It is a softer mattress, which is something to keep in mind if you prefer a firm feel on your back. I saw great pressure relief on my back, which light back sleepers should also experience.
  • Light Side Sleepers The Propel is a solid choice for light side sleepers. It’s soft and allows for some sinkage, and I saw really good results for pressure relief on my side. It’s also got some bounce to it, which is nice if you switch between side and another position.
  • Light Stomach Sleepers When lying on my stomach, my hips were sinking too much for the Propel to be a good option for stomach sleepers. Lighter people won’t sink as much, so if you only occasionally sleep on your stomach, the Propel could work. But for strict stomach sleepers, I’d pick something firmer.

Is the Propel Sleep a Good Mattress for Average Weight Sleepers (130 – 250 lb)? 

  • Average Weight Back SleepersAverage weight back sleepers should be comfortable on the Propel. Again, keep in mind that it is a little soft, so you should sink to a comfortable level and get great pressure relief.
  • Average Weight Side SleepersI like the Propel for average weight side sleepers. They’ll get nice sinkage and pressure relief on sensitive joints. And the mobility is great for side combination sleepers.
  • Average Weight Stomach SleepersI wouldn’t recommend the Propel for average weight stomach sleepers. I found my hips sinking in too much, which can put the spine out of alignment and lead to back pain.

Is the Propel Sleep a Good Mattress for Heavy Sleepers (over 250 lb)? 

  • Heavy Back SleepersI think because this mattress is on the softer side, it isn’t going to be a good choice for heavy back sleepers, who need a more supportive mattress.
  • Heavy Side SleepersThe same as back sleepers, I wouldn’t recommend this mattress for heavy side sleepers because I think the Propel is lacking in enough support for heavy sleepers.
  • Heavy Stomach SleepersAgain, I’d steer heavy stomach sleepers away from the Propel and towards something more supportive. To see better recommendations, check out my best mattresses for heavy people roundup.

Propel Sleep Mattress Pain Relief Performance

It’s important to find a mattress that offers the right mix of pressure relief and support for your sleeping style. 

We put a real-time pressure map on top of the Propel that allows us to view how the mattress is interacting with the body. The map is color coded with blue representing low/no pressure, green and yellow for medium pressure, and red for high pressure. We lay down in various positions to emulate what would happen to different types of sleepers.

Propel Pressure Map
Propel Pressure Map

Back Pain – Lying on my back, I saw great pressure relief all around, so the Propel should work for back sleepers to prevent back pain. On my side, I saw good alignment and little pressure buildup, so I think it will be great for side sleepers as well. On my stomach, I didn’t see much pressure but my hips were sinking into the mattress, which can lead to back pain.

Shoulder Pain – On my back, it was all blues here. I think the softness of this mattress will be great for back sleepers with shoulder pain. On my side, there’s a small amount of pressure in the shoulders, but that’s normal. Again, because the mattress is softer, side sleepers’ shoulders should be comfortable. And there was no upper body pressure while stomach sleeping, but again I’d steer stomach sleepers away from the Propel because of the hip sinkage.

Hip Pain – On my back and side, I saw a small amount of green on the pressure map around my hips, but I think this level is fine. Especially for side sleepers, the soft firmness level will cushion your hips nicely. On my stomach, there isn’t much pressure, but my hips were sinking into the mattress too deeply, so I wouldn’t recommend it for stomach sleepers.

Propel Sleep Mattress Performance for Couples

If you share your bed with a partner, there’s a few extra things you might want to consider. I’ll be taking a look at motion transfer, how a bed performs for sex, cooling, and edge support to help you decide if the Propel is the best mattress for you and your partner. 

Motion Transfer 

The motion transfer test lets us know if your significant other will disturb you if they get in and out of bed a lot at night.

Dropping the 10 lb. steel ball from heights of 4”, 8” and 12” gives us a good indication of how the Propel responds to a partner’s movement. The ball is dropped on one side of the bed while the seismometer is positioned on the other side (where a partner would sleep).

Propel Motion Transfer
Propel Motion Transfer

I was impressed with the isolation of motion in the Propel. This is not common for bouncy mattresses, meaning that most couples will probably have a good experience with the Propel.

Sex

When picking a mattress that’s good for sex, generally I look for a bed that’s bouncy and responsive. The Propel mattress definitely fits the bill here! Despite being soft and easy to sink into, the Propel is surprisingly bouncy, making it easy to move around on. I think this will be a great mattress for sex.

Cooling 

While sharing a bed with your partner can be cozy or romantic, it can also get pretty toasty with two people’s body heat. To keep your bed cool and comfortable, it’s important to have a mattress with some cooling capabilities. 

Fortunately, the Propel is a great option for a cooling mattress. The Phase Change Material used in the cover, called TitanCool, adapts to your body temperature. The CopperFlex latex foam is also great for cooling, as latex is a naturally cooling material. And finally, because the Propel is a hybrid mattress, there is more room for airflow within the coils, which prevents heat from being trapped in the mattress.

Edge Support

Edge support is a test of how well a mattress can bear weight along the perimeter. If you lie along the edge of a mattress and feel it bending underneath you, as if you’ll slip off, that’s poor edge support. Good edge support allows you to use the entire surface of the mattress, which is important for couples.

I thought the Propel had good edge support. The coils helped to keep the edges firm and supportive when I was sitting or lying along the edge and I didnt’ feel as if I were going to fall off the bed.

What is the Propel Sleep Mattress Made Of? 

Let’s take a look at the six layers of the Propel. The Propel uses a relatively advanced mix of materials in its top layers to provide a unique balance between comfort and mobility. Although you may sink into the mattress at first, you don’t lose mobility when changing positions. The comforting pressure relief is usually good for strict side sleepers, while combo sleepers should find the mobility advantageous!

Propel
Propel

Upcycle Performance Cover Phase change material makes the cover of the Propel cool to the touch. This is usually great news for folks who tend to sleep hot.

Comfort Layer The comfort layer has a softer latex foam alternative known as CopperFlex™. The latex has a quick response to pressure while the copper infusion moves heat away from the sleeper. This latex is paired with TitanCool, a phase change molecule surface infusion that also promotes cooling.

Transition Layer – Energex™ is another latex foam alternative that is breathable and also has a quick response to pressure. Like the Copperflex™ layer above it, this layer is also placed near the sleeper to help with heat dissipation.

Buffer Layer – The next layer of gel visco-elastic memory foam has a slower response to pressure, but it’s difficult to feel its contouring effects this far down in the mattress. It should provide a bit of pressure relief if you push down far enough into the Propel, which is usually good for heavier sleepers. This memory foam isn’t really for the sleeper directly. It’s really a buffer layer between the softer top layers and the extremely bouncy pocketed coils directly underneath.

Support Layer Pocketed coils give the sleeper support and provide spinal alignment. You might also say that these coils give the Propel its name, because they are quite bouncy. The layer of memory foam directly above does keep the mattress from feeling like a trampoline, however.

Base Layer High-density foam forms the bottom layer of the mattress, providing structure to the Propel and durability to its other layers.

Propel Sleep Mattress Unboxing and Off-Gassing

When you purchase the Propel, it will arrive compressed and rolled into a box, since it is a bed-in-a-box! To unbox the mattress, all you need to do is bring the box into your desired room, open the box and roll the mattress onto your foundation, and remove the packaging.

Once the packaging is off, the mattress will start to inflate. You might notice a slight smell coming from the mattress—this is known as off-gassing. It might be a little unpleasant, but it’s harmless. The smell is coming from gasses trapped in the mattress during compression being released. If you experience any off-gassing, let the mattress air out for 24 hours before sleeping on it and you should be fine.

My Final Thoughts about Propel Sleep Mattress

As I wrap up this Propel mattress review, here’s my final thoughts about this bed: what I liked and what I disliked.

My favorite things about Propel Sleep mattress

The Propel mattress has a lot to offer. I really liked how the mattress was on the softer side, allowing for nice contouring and pressure relief, but was still very bouncy. This makes the mattress great for back and side sleepers, as well as combination sleepers. 

I also appreciated how the Propel had lots of bounce, but also great motion isolation. Combined with good cooling and edge support, the Propel is a really solid choice for couples. Solo hot sleepers will also really appreciate how this mattress will help them sleep cool.

My Propel Sleep mattress complaints 

Where the Propel falls short is for stomach sleepers and for heavy sleepers. It’s not supportive enough for either of these groups. Stomach sleepers generally need a firmer mattress to keep their hips aligned and heavy sleepers in all positions need a sturdy, durable to ensure their alignment is maintained and their body is well-supported.

Propel Sleep Mattress vs Bear Hybrid Mattress

  • The Bear Hybrid mattress is specially designed to help athletes recover while they sleep, relieving sore joints and muscles.
  • The Bear Hybrid offers a great mix of responsive bounciness that allows you to move easily on the bed, but also pressure-relieving sinkage.
  • The Bear Hybrid  also showed really solid motion isolation, making it a great pick for couples.
  • Read my full Bear Hybrid mattress review to learn more.

Bear Hybrid Mattress

I found a lot to love in the Bear Hybrid. While the lift of its pocketed coil system will leave you feeling more “on top” of the mattress than “in” it, its top layers of memory foam are going to provide you with plenty of pressure-relieving sinkage.
