I was sent a Pangea Bed for free to review. According to Wikipedia, the word Pangea is derived from Ancient Greek pan (πᾶν, “all, entire, whole”) and Gaia (Γαῖα, “Mother Earth, land”).The concept that the continents once formed a continuous land mass…” In the context of mattresses, the Pangea bed is all the best material coming together to make 1 great mattress.
Ordering and Unboxing
You can order the Pangea bed online. There are two different models to choose from, the Classic and the Copper, although they have the same feel. The queen size classic sells for $890 while the copper version sells for $999. There are some distinct advantages of having copper in the mattress. Your mattress will arrive in a box to your door in about a week and comes with a 100 night trial.
Below is a video of me unboxing the Pangea Bed.
The Pangea bed has the following construction as listed on the website. So far this has been my favorite latex/foam mattress. The latex gives you good support and keeps you afloat while there is enough foam so that you don’t feel like you’re fighting with the bed for comfort.

I slept on the Pangea bed for 4 weeks. It was hard to let it go but I had other mattresses to review so off it went. Both my wife and I really liked this mattress. She is sensitive to neck pain if a mattress isn’t just right and this mattress alleviated that pain. If a mattress is too soft, I will have some lower back pain but not with this mattress. My wife also a prefers a softer mattress and even though I think this is a tad on the firmer end, she was happy with the pressure relief. I think she would have preferred it a bit softer but there is of course a tradeoff.
Below is a thermal camera video that illustrated heat dissipation from the top of the copper version of the Pangea Bed. Copper is used to help keep you cool at night.
You aren’t going to sink much in the Pangea Bed so if you want a mattress that will give you a pillow top feel you will want to look elsewhere. Below is a picture illustrating sink in the Pangea Bed.
Here’s how much bounce you can expect to get. Because it has a firm base and a layer of latex, the mattress will recover quickly.
Here’s another video showing the bounce in slow motion.
The Pangea Bed has a lot going for it. It is a great choice for couples that want a mattress that will give them good lower back support but also provide enough pressure relief so that hips and shoulders won’t hurt.
You also get to choose having the benefit or copper. This is a well made mattress that you can jump into without bottoming out. It should support heavier people just fine.
