Avena foam is the top layer (comfort layer) of the Leesa mattress. Many people talk about how comfortable the Leesa mattress is, however nobody really knows much about Avena (it’s really only used in the Leesa, as far as mattresses go). What’s interesting about this foam is that it really is a latex alternative, although it is a polyurethane foam.
Why people call it a latex alternative is because it behaves like latex (see how in my best latex mattress page), in that it has more “spring” than memory foam, and it actually helps keep the mattress from sleeping hot, as I describe in my Leesa mattress review.
What are the properties of Avena foam?
What are the specs?
Let me know if any of you foam gurus have any follow up questions!
