Sleepeezee Backcare Ultimate 2000 Pocket Mattress Review

Sleepeezee is a UK sleep brand established in 1924 and has maintained the highest standards ever since. This brand is best known for mattresses, but company also has other products in its offer, even for pets. We tested the Backcare Ultimate 2000 Pocket mattress, one of the orthopaedic mattresses offered by Sleepeezee and here is your review by The Sleep Advisors.


  • Cooling & breathable

    Beside the natural materials & Damask cover, Air Vents ensure breathability.

  • Orthopedic-like firmness

    The mattress is extra-firm and supportive. The firmness scale is 9 out of 10.

  • Natural materials

    The perfect combination of wool and cashmere make it natural.


  • Non-removable cover

    Though luxurious Damask cover, you cannot remove it

  • Not for side sleepers

    Due to high level of firmness and extra support, most side sleepers won't enjoy it.

  • One-sided

    The durability would be even better if it would have been double sided mattress.

Who is Sleepeezee Backcare Ultimate 2000 Pocket mattress for?

Sleepeezee Backcare Ultimate 2000 Pocket mattress is for all those who suffer from neck and back pain, so they need an orthopaedic one, as well as for front and back sleepers who like firm support. Since it is extra firm, it is completely unsuitable for side sleepers.

We believe that it is also for people with allergies. Breathability is good, and that is something hot sleepers want to know about.

In addition, we will talk about some other very important features, and all this together should give you a clear picture of what this mattress actually is and whether you should order it.

    Extra firmness

    When they were creating  Backcare Ultimate 2000 Pocket Mattress, Sleepeeze sleep experts certainly knew they are limiting the number of potential customers by making such a firm mattress. On a firmness scale of 1 to 10, this mattress is somewhere between 8 and 9, which is as firm as a rock for side sleepers.

    But because of to such firmness, this mattress is perfect for a large number of people who nowadays have problems with the neck, back and other parts of the body. This is a great orthopaedic mattress that provides superior body support.

    2000 individual pocket springs for orthopedic & lower back support

    This mattress features a large number of pockets springs, more precisely 2000. The pocket spring system is a topnotch spring system. It is a spring system where each of the 2000 springs, in this case, is housed in its own fabric pocket. In this way, each pocket spring functions separately, which is necessary to get personalized support.

    Unlike other spring systems where springs are connected, here each spring provides as much support as needed, and also prevents motion transfer. This allows you to have your own sleep zone and you will not be affected by your partner’s body weight even if your partner is a restless sleeper. Due to fabric pockets, this spring system is completely silent.

    Combination of wool and cashmere for luxurious fillings

    It is necessary to have comfort layers on top of the pocket springs in order for you to sleep comfortable. Instead of memory foam, which is most often implemented in hybrid mattresses, luxury filling made of natural materials has been used here.

    This blend of natural materials primarily consists of wool and cashmere. Wool is without doubt the best natural material when it comes to temperature regulation and it is also natural insulator. Cashmere is a luxurious natural material obtained from cashmere goats and provides comfort as well as a luxurious feel. The combination of wool and cashmere creates a comfortable and pleasant sleeping environment, which will keep you warm in winter and cool in summer.

    Belgian Damask cover & hand tufts for secured fillings

    A high-end mattress, like this one, must have a cover that matches the quality of the rest of the product. This is definitely the case here as the mattress is encased in a non-removable Belgian damask cover. The cover is soft, durable and has a very nice design.

    You will notice hand tufts on the surface of the mattress. Woollen tufts significantly affect durability. Hand tufting is the best and most durable technique for connecting all layers. Hand tufted mattress usually last much longer. Thanks to woollen hand tufts, this mattress is stable and provides excellent edge support unlike many other mattresses that struggle with providing edge support..

    Air Vents for improved breathability

    Four metal air vents located on the mattress border improve airflow significantly. Pocket springs, wool and cashmere already make this mattress breathable, but air vents are also necessary because there is a possibility of heat build-up without air vents. Also, air vents mean that mites and other allergens will not accumulate in the mattress.

    Turning handles for easier rotation

    This is a single-sided mattress which means you don’t have to flip it over, just to rotate it. Although it is much easier to rotate than flip over, turning handles are necessary. Highly durable built-in turning handles located on the side will make rotating very easy and fast.

    26 cm of mattress depth

    Sleepeezee Backcare Ultimate 2000 Pocket mattress is 26 cm deep (about 10.2 inches) which is slightly above the industry average for pocket spring mattresses. Even very heavy people will be able to use it, since it is 26 cm deep, it will not become too thin even when someone who weighs 100 or more kg lies on it.

    5-year warranty with 60-days trial

    Frankly speaking, we expected the mattress in this price range to have an 8 to 10 year warranty, not just a 5 year warranty. Although a 5-year warranty is better than the industry standard, high-priced mattresses like this usually have a longer warranty period. Anyway, we don’t expect you to have any problems with this mattress long after the warranty expires.

    You have the option to try it for 60 nights and determine if you want to keep it or if you need different mattress, for example, a softer one.

    Review of Sleepeezee Backcare Ultimate 2000 Pocket mattress

    Sleepeezee Backcare Ultimate 2000 Pocket mattress is one of the firmest mattresses we have ever had the opportunity to test. All orthopedic mattresses are firm, as their primary role is to provide a high level of support, but this mattress gives extra firm feel. This will be very beneficial for people with back pain, as well as for back and stomach sleepers. Stomach sleepers will get extra lower back support which is crucial for spinal alignment in that sleep position.

    This mattress has 2000 pockets springs that are individually wrapped in fabric pockets, thus providing unique support and at the same time preventing motion transfer, so it is ideal for couples. Between you and the pocket springs are comfort layers made of wool and cashmere. The role of wool is to regulate the temperature, and cashmere gives comfort and a luxurious feel. Belgian Damask cover is of great quality, and is connected to other parts of the mattress with the help of hand tufts, which guarantees edge-to-edge support as well as the stability of the mattress.

    It is handcrafted in the UK and approved by the National Bed Federation. It comes with a 5-year warranty and a 60-night trial.

    What we like about Sleepeezee Backcare Ultimate 2000 Pocket mattress

    • If support is most important feature for you when buying a mattress, then Sleepeezee Backcare Ultimate 2000 Pocket Mattress is the perfect choice
    • The combination of wool and cashmere affects comfort and temperature regulation, and can only be found in premium products       
    • Belgian Damask cover is soft, hypoallergenic and durable.

    What we didn’t like about Sleepeezee Backcare Ultimate 2000 Pocket mattress

    • Too firm for all side sleepers, and certainly for a number of back sleepers 
    • We think this is a very durable product, but service life would be even longer if it is double-sided and not single-sided
    • It is very expensive, which is expected considering the presence of wool, cashmere and overall quality.

    What makes this product better than some other similar ones?

    Unmatched support makes Sleepeezee Backcare Ultimate 2000 Pocket mattress better than some other similar ones. As we have mentioned several times in the review, this is an extra firm mattress that provides support on the entire surface, and additional support on the lower back because this is where you need it most. Support is not the only feature, because this is a very comfortable mattress. Also, breathability and temperature regulation are at a high level. The addition of wool and cashmere is something we really like. The damask cover is finely woven for good look and excellent durability. Hand tufts are also worth mentioning.

    How did we test the product?

    You have one great advantage when ordering this product, and that is the possibility to choose any delivery date. If you choose delivery on weekdays to your building, it is free, and delivery on weekends or two man delivery to the room of your choice are paid extra, as well as the old mattress removal.

    When your product arrives, you need to do two things first. To check for any damage and download the Sleepeezee Product Care and Guarantee PDF file. We also did those two things first, before we started a roller test that passed with flying colours. This cannot be said for the maintenance test, which we did not even conduct, because the cover is not removable.

    As soon as we read the features of this mattress, we knew it is not for side sleepers, but we never fully trust other reviews until we try it ourselves. That’s why our side-sleeping testers have tried this mattress to confirm that it is not good for this sleeping position.

    After that, front and back sleeping testers took it over and tested it for a whole month. It is a known fact that the body needs a few weeks to get used to the mattress, and only then can it be said whether it is really comfortable, supportive and so on. It was also tested by hot sleepers in a room with central heating.
