Yes. Our top upholstery layer, just below the quilted top of the mattress, is a ventilated layer of latex. Latex is an extremely comfortable, durable and resilient material. It literally pushes back because it is made from a rubber derivative. This layer is also made to provide cooling comfort. The latex has been ventilated with holes for air flow. The latex is also infused with a cooling gel. These features help keep your mattress cooler and prevent that "sleeping hot" feel that many mattresses (especially all-foam), suffer from. But as much as we love latex, it is just one element in a more complex sleep system. When combined with our coil spring support and high density polyurethane foams, we believe it adds just the right amount of comfort and air flow to the Big Fig sleep system.
