Bought this to replace the mattress from a used futon I purchased. I was concerned it would be too large for my standard sized futon, but it fit like a charm. I was also concerned the inner springs would be uncomfortable, not so. It replaces a non-spring mattress so it is not "as comfortable" as a lump of foam, but it is certainly comfortable enough, and is more firm than the foam. And when the futon is laid flat, this mattress is unmatched in comfort. Pic is below. I would not hesitate to purchase this if you want a value. One tip, when unpacking, be careful when cutting the outer wrapping. I used a box-cutter and almost ended up cutting the mattress. There is no real protection around the mattress other than plastic wrap.

A great value for new mattress
Ideal 6" futon mattress
This futon mattress is used primarily as a futon sofa on the lower level of my daughter's bunk bed. When guests spend the night, we use the futon as a bed. This 6" futon mattress is more ideal than the 8" version if the futon is frequently used as a sofa. The reason I say this - when you fold the 8", it is so thick that it starts to slide off the frame. The 6" folds up a little easier and is less prone to sliding. If you are sleeping on the 8", it is extremely comfortable. The 6" is reasonably comfortable to sleep on and I think is a better compromise. Both have a good appearance.
Great mattress, 'meh' price.
I'm a college student who was simply looking for something more comfy than the cotton batting/polyfil mattress I had and this one (after a lot of online research) was my best bet. I was looking for a plain black one, but saw that the price for black was $20 more than it was for a brown one....worth the extra money? I think not. I just went ahead with the brown mattress. After it got delivered (being held back a day; shame on you, FedEx) I dragged it down to my futon frame and unwrapped it there so I wouldn't have to play the puzzle game with my dorm room and friends. Tip: When unwrapping, the mattress will end up upside down, don't cut the second plastic layer until you have it the way you want it! It immediately started expanding and was as it was supposed to be in about 6 hours. I've been sleeping on it for about 2 weeks and it's wonderful! I can fold it into a sofa without too much trouble (it is a little heavy, so watch out if your arms aren't very strong) and it's kept its springy-ness really well!
Definitely a Innerspring Futon Mattress
We wanted a futon with innersprings and thick. This is firm, with a springy bounce and it's a thick 6" futon. I wouldn't use it as a day to day mattress, because you do feel the springs. But for an occasional sitting area, it's ok. It was very well packaged and it delivered super fast.
Good for price
I agree with others about cutting the wrapping off instead of trying to "save" it! Be careful when you cut plastic away because mattress pops open since it's been vacuum sealed. And it does smell...hoping that goes away soon. It's been a few days and I still smell it when I walk in my son's room!
Overall, decent mattress
We purchased 2 of these for our children's rooms. They are much better than the standard 6" mattress but they do not fold into the couch form easily. It takes 2 people to transition the futon into a couch. They are firm so you do not feel the frame of the futon.
Not as good as the 8 inch mattress!
If you are debating between the 6 inch or 8 inch futon mattress, go with the 8 inch. I own both. The 8 inch is considerably more comfortable. Although the 8 inch is more bulky, making folding into a chair more difficult, it is far superior in comfort. The 6 inch does not have a meaningful amount of padding. You can feel the springs when sitting or laying on it. It is apparent that the 6 inch will become more uncomfortable as time passes. The 8 inch one has held up for over a year now and is as comfortable now as when I first bought it. You can't feel the springs and there is definitely enough padding to make the springs unnoticeable. So, coming from someone who has bought and sampled both.... DO NOT BUY THIS 6 INCH MATTRESS, GO WITH THE 8 INCH ONE!! Why don't I return it for the 8 inch? These mattress are big and heavy when shrunk wrapped from the factory. Getting one that has been unpackaged back to the store isn't very practical or worth the effort. I'll use this one for the dogs to lay on and have another 8 inch delivered. :Z
BE CAREFUL! Not as described! ONLY SINGLE SIDED!
This is the second Futon pad that I purchased form Walmart.com. The first one was an 8" inner spring and it was fine. THIS 6" however, does NOT tell you in the description that it is SINGLE SIDED and cannot be flipped! The padding over the springs is on only one SIDE! The 8" version was better and was able to be rotated so it can wear evenly. I don't know why anyone would design a pad that was only single sided! the support bars eventually cut indentations into the pad that cannot be evened out by flipping it.
Not a good pick for sleeping on.
My daughter is using the mattress and she said it hurt her back and didn't sleep well. It's hard to return because it inflates when you take it out of the bag and you can't get it back in. We put a memory foam on top of the mattress and that make it comfortable. Now we don't have the hassle of trying to send it back.
Feels like you're sitting on metal springs
I had a futon back in the 80s. It was cotton and firm but not springy. I haven't bought a futon in years and apparently the definition for the product has changed. This feels like you're on metal springs and you can feel the individual coils. I think my son and his friends will be fine with it. I just know what mine was like back in the day and this is nothing like it. Fortunately they have nothing to compare it to.
