    That's like asking you to settle for Mississippi, when you can work a little hard for a taste of Kentucky.

    Well, if those purple doo dads are as good as Kentuckians, then you make a good point!

    Nope. It only moves when you get out the seat.

    Just turn the zipper end down so it doesn't
    Stick you on the back.
    Never been so comfortable and I been
    Out here over 20 years.

    When your parked, the big one just flops
    Back down on top of the little one.
    Then I sit on both of them.

    Forget the price.
    It's not like they wear out.
    The only reason to buy another one is if you
    Lost it or someone stole it.

    I never leave mine in the truck when I go home.
    To easy to disappear in the shop.

    Been looking at their mattresses online too. I think I'm due for one at home and will be getting a purple. You like em? They pretty firm?

    They are firm enough, but with cushion. Don't buy online, instead go into a Denver Mattress and try a few out.

    There’s 5 different Purple mattresses. I agree on go try them out. Denver mattress has them. I didn’t consider cost. Liked the 3 best.
    I’d say buy from Denver Mattress. People at purple can’t follow directions to save their lives.
    As far as firm. The 5 different ones are all different. You might even prefer the original? I got mine because of lower back pain. Not enough support at hip area in truck mattresses. I love my purple.
    Also... purple isn’t hot. Memory foam mattresses are hot. Nice in winter. Also memory foam doesn’t actually provide support. Purple does.
    In this new Volvo. It seems to be a combination of some kind of pad like purple. Maybe is? Also has memory foam. I run the AC more when I sleep. It is really good. Given the choice. I’d go with Purple by a not big margin.

    On the seat cushion. It has worked best in this new Volvo. The seat has a lot of adjustment. The cushion works with it really well. Biggest thing the cushion does is keeping blood flowing to legs.

    My purple seat cushion is comfortable, but it doesn't breath much si it can be swampy.
