Hamilton mattresses by Chattam & Wells tend to be on the firm side. The softest one in the Hamilton series, the Hamilton Pillow Top, has a comfort level of medium (the Firm is very firm, and the Plush is medium firm). This pillowtop mattress has all the components of the Hamilton Plush and the Hamilton Firm, and adds a layer of Dunlop latex foam.
The cover of the Hamilton Pillow Top is the Chattam Quilt. The Tencel cover fabric is quilted to a fire barrier of silicized rayon with polyester, Joma wool, and high density convoluted polyurethane foam.
High resiliency polyurethane foam transitions support from the innerspring to the pillow top and quilt.
The core of this innerspring mattress is the set of 450 (in Queen size) Hinge-Flex Plus knotted offset coils (SpringAir owns the Chattam & Wells brand, and offset coils were invented by the founder of SpringAir, Frank Karr). These coils automatically adjust to the sleeper's weight.
Chattam Edge supplies edge support for the sleeping surface of the Hamilton Pillow Top. It consists of very dense foam rails and C&W's profile edge. This is to prevent roll-offs, enabling sleepers to use the entire top, even to the edge. The edge of the pillow top section does soften the feel without compromising support.
The standard foundation for the C&W Hamilton Pillow Top is an 18-slat wood base. Made by Amish workmen, it is upholstered to match the mattress.
The Chattam & Wells Hamilton Pillow Top (also called Hamilton Luxury Pillow Top by some retailers) is found at dealers of luxury mattresses. The sleep trial is for 90 days, and the warranty for 20 years.
