Silentnight Mirapocket 1000 Geltex is pocket spring, or better yet, a Mirapocket spring from Silentnight's Geltex series. It is a medium support mattress with a base of 1000 individually nested pocket springs and a 4 cm comfort Geltex layer.
As a medium support mattress, Silentnight Mirapocket 1000 Geltex is pretty much a mattress for everyone. It is both firm and comfortable enough to comfortably support every sleeping position.
In other words, this should get you a good night's sleep.
As a medium support pocket spring mattress, Silentnight Mirapocket 1000 Geltex does two things quite well – it offers adequate support and solid pressure relief. As such, Silentnight Mirapocket 1000 Geltex could is a great candidate for your go-to master bedroom mattress.
Also, you could make a case for this one as being helpful when it comes to alleviating pain and pressure. Promoting an adequate sleeping position, this one surely does help alleviate some pain and discomfort, but then again, that's not its strongest suit. So, we use it for:
Like any other mattress, Silentnight Mirapocket 1000 Geltex comes with its own set of unique features and characteristics that we should let you in on if you want to understand what makes this mattress different from the others.
Geltex, the namesake of this series of Silentnight's mattresses, is a gel-infused comfort layer that brings several things to the table.
First up, as a rule, the gel-infused layers do a much better job of actively regulating temperature compared to, for instance, memory foam comfort layers.
Geltex belongs to this group of gel-infused comfort layers that improve breathability due to its open-cell structure, among other things.
Next up, its elastic and flexible structure allows it to create an easy-movement sleep surface, but more on that later.
Finally, Geltex also improves weight distribution, which directly leads to much better pressure relief and, therefore more pleasant sleeping experience.
To further enhance the comfort this Silentnight mattress comes with a pillow top. A pillow top mattress is usually the best mattress for side sleeping due to the plushness it offers. And, once again, this proves to be true.
As is often the case with pocket spring mattresses, this one also comes without a removable, machine-washable cover. But, what it lacks in the maintenance department is made up for in the comfort department. The top cover is soft and plush, ensuring a comfortable sleeping experience.
As we’ve said, Geltex is not only responsible for creating a breathable sleeping environment, but due to its flexible nature, it also helps improve motion isolation, pressure relief, and weight distribution.
Geltex’s highly elastic profile with Active Response Technology offers a noticeable amount of bounce, allowing you to move freely during the night, promoting undisturbed sleep, as well as other, extracurricular bed activities.
On the other hand, this also means that motion isolation won’t be as good as you might want it to be. It’s far from bad, but if you share the bed with a restless sleeper, you will probably feel them during the night.
Silentnight Mirapocket 1000 Geltex mattress is supported by 1000 individually nested Mirapocket pocket springs. As you know, 1000 pocket springs isn’t a lot, but it is still enough to create a comfortable sleeping surface.
What we get from these pocket springs is even weight distribution and adequate, tailored support from head to toe. With each spring moving independently, the Silentnight Mirapocket 1000 Geltex is able to provide just enough support to each area of your body, alleviating pressure off of core areas, while simultaneously promoting adequate posture and spinal alignment regardless of the sleeping position.
Even though the cover is not removable, it has been treated with Purotex. A Purotex-treated cover will be better at absorbing and wicking away excess moisture, which will provide you with a dry, fresh sleeping surface.
Furthermore, Purotex treated cover creates a hostile environment for bacteria, dust mites, and other allergens, providing you with a safe and healthy mattress.
As we've already said, Silentnight Mirapocket 1000 Geltex offers medium support, possibly even medium-firm, depending on your body weight. As such, the Silentnight Mirapocket 1000 Geltex mattress is designed to tailor to everyone's needs – including stomach sleepers, who are usually not too keen on medium support mattresses.
However, Mirapocket pocket springs manage to evenly distribute the weight, preventing the hips from sinking into the mattress when you lie down on your stomach.
Now, let’s see the final verdict for the Silentnight Mirapocket 1000 Geltex mattress.
Overall, we are looking at a good mattress. If you are looking for a high-end mattress that matches its price tag – Silentnight Mirapocket 1000 Geltex is a mattress for you.
It is comfortable and supportive, despite being only 5 out of 10 on a firmness scale. Due to full-sized pocket springs and a Geltex comfort layer, Silentnight Mirapocket 1000 Geltex manages to offer solid full-body support and even weight distribution, which is why it is suitable for all types of sleepers.
Another thing worth mentioning is that this mattress is also quite breathable. It could be due to a breathable Geltex layer, but it is probably thanks to the pocket springs. Whatever the case may be, one thing is for certain – you won’t get too hot sleeping on this one.
Finally, the biggest problem with this mattress isn’t with the mattress itself, but with the company. Namely, you don’t get an actual trial period to test this mattress out. Instead, you get a 60-night exchange period, during which you can exchange this mattress for a different product in Silentnight’s collection, but you can’t get your money back.
To be perfectly honest with you, we didn’t come across any serious problems when testing out this mattress. However, the fact that the “sleep guarantee” (trial ) period is actually an exchange period is a bit misleading.
We don't think many customers would go one to check out what a “sleep guarantee” means when almost every other reputable company offers refunds and money-back guarantees.

Silentnight Mirapocket 1000 Geltex is a definition of an all-around mattress. Its adaptability is definitely its strongest suit. It is supportive regardless of what position you sleep in, despite being a 5 on the firmness scale.
To put it simply, this mattress checks all the necessary boxes and easily outperforms its price tag. As far as mid-range products are concerned, all things considered – this one just might be in the top 3.
As you know, writing an objective review is easier said than done. Most of the things, mattress-wise, come down to a personal preference. What’s good for one person can be just as bad for the other, and vice versa.
To stay objective during these reviews, we try to look at the bigger picture by looking at the product from different perspectives. We do that by having a diverse team of testers. In the case of the Silentnight Mirapocket 1000 Geltex mattress, we had each of our team members spend ten nights with it and write down their thoughts and impressions on things like comfort, support, edge support, bounce, motion isolation, pressure relief, breathability, etc.
That allowed us to experience this mattress in several different ways and to come up with a general, objective truth about it.
Also, aside from hands-on testing done by our team members, we’ve also done the roller and the kettlebell test. These two allow us to test the durability and quality of the mattress without having to involve personal preference or taste. Instead, we can focus on measurable results that can tell us just how well-built the mattress is.
Overall, we were very pleased with the performance of the Silentnight Mirapocket 1000 Geltex mattress. It’s comfortable, supportive, and well-built, which are the three most important things when it comes to mattresses.
Pretty much every manufacturer's claim has proven to be true, including a firmness rating which we wholeheartedly agree with.
In the end, we'd say this one is a solid 8/10 for a high-end mattress. But after reading our Silentnight Mirapocket 1000 Geltex Mattress review, what do you think? Are you going to get this mattress? Let us know in the comments!
