First Lite Cirrus Puffy Vs Kelvin Lite

puffy-vs-competitors

Puffy is one of the most popular direct-to-consumer mattress dealers in the market now. A proudly Canadian-owned and operated company, Puffy made its name in the bedding market through proprietary foam technologies such as their Cooling Cloud foam and their Climate Comfort foam.

Puffy is still a top-rated North American mattress company that specializes in full foam mattresses. However, they are not the only ones vying to win customer attention. What does Puffy do against other well-known brands? Let’s see.

The Puffy Mattress: A Review First Lite Cirrus Puffy Vs Kelvin Lite

Before we get into the comparisons, let’s review what Puffy is as a mattress company. This will give us a better understanding of how it compares to other companies.

Types of Mattresses Available

Puffy offers two mattress options on its website: the Puffy Original or the Puffy Lux. The mattresses are available in a variety of sizes from Twin to California King. Both mattresses also share the same construction, save for the Puffy Lux’s additional foam layer bringing its mattress height to 12 inches compared to the Puffy Original’s 10-inch height.

Every Puffy mattress begins with Cooling Cloud foam. This proprietary foam composition by Puffy ensures a uniform heat transfer while providing a soft and supportive sleep environment. Assisting the Cooling Cloud foam top layer are Climate Control foam and the pressure-relieving firm support base. The Climate Control foam acts as an additional intermediary between the top gel foam and the bottom support base while increasing the mattresses’ ability to regulate body temperature. The support base serves as the final foundation of the entire mattress, giving it structure and preventing you from sinking too deep into the bed. This whole mattress composition was designed with proper pressure relief, spinal alignment, and temperature regulation in mind.

The Puffy Lux has an additional layer of foam, the Plush Dual Cloud foam, giving you two extra inches of foam and helping you ease built of tension in your pressure points from a long day out. The Puffy Lux and the Puffy Original are wrapped in a hypoallergenic and grippy top and bottom mattress cover, respectively.

Pricing Point for Mattresses

When it comes to choosing the right mattress for you, price is going to be a major determining factor. Puffy’s price point is in the middle of the spectrum. It is not too costly but not necessarily cheap.

An entry-level Puffy mattress, that is to say, their Twin sized original Puffy mattress, will set you back an easy CAD$750. But be warned that entering the Queen sizes and onwards will have you break the bank with over CAD$1,000 in costs. This goes double for the Puffy Lux mattress, which will reach over CAD$2,000 for the exact sizes as the original.

With all the ins and outs of Puffy accounted for, let’s now see how it matches up against some other popular brands online.

Puffy Mattresses vs. Emma Mattresses

Emma is an online icon, thanks to their extensive use of online marketing. Puffy, a proudly Canadian business, is Emma’s source for their technologies. Their German-born designs are specifically geared towards temperature control as well as spinal alignment.

Will this European-designed bed be able to ship anywhere?

Types of Mattresses Available

The Emma Original mattress uses a proprietary foam technology, much like Puffy, that is designed to give a soft and plush feel without sacrificing any of the bounce that you might expect from a well-structured mattress. This hybrid and balanced softness can be attributed to their memory foam and latex foam technologies. Airgocell, their leading foam used in all of their mattresses, is their most recent innovation. It is made to adapt to pressure and respond to the body’s movements while you sleep.

Beneath this top layer of Airgocell is Emma’s visco-elastic memory foam, which acts as a secondary layer of plush foam between the Airgocell and the supportive base layer. Similar to Puffy’s Cooling Cloud foam construction, this layer is layered on top of the firm supportive core foam. Though what’s interesting with Emma’s mattresses is that their supportive foundational foam (the bottom-most layer) has ridges all around its top, which is meant to provide an additional spinal alignment benefit and counter any pressure you put on the mattress.

Unlike Puffy, Emma only sells the original version of their popular mattress. There is no Emma Lux or Emma Premier type, just the standard 10-inch mattress on which Emma pulls its entire catalog.

Price Point of Mattresses

Emma has only one type of mattress so it will be much easier to compare prices to Puffy’s original mattress. Emma certainly makes it much easier for new customers to try out their mattresses as their entry-level price point is at a low CAD$419 compared to Puffy’s CAD$700 twin-sized beds. Even Emma’s Queen size mattress comes in cheaper than Puffy’s twin size.

Emma’s single mattress option eliminates the need for expensive options like Puffy. You won’t need to choose between a standard or premium version as Emma has backed all its focus on its standard size.

Final Winner

Puffy has Emma beat when it comes to choice. You can choose from a variety of mattresses, including premium and original versions, as well as additional accessories such sheets, covers, pillows and bases.

Emma has one advantage over Puffy: the price. Emma is a lot cheaper than Puffy, but offers the same premium comfort. Emma offers similar customer protection plans with the same warranties and trial plans as Puffy. If you’re a newbie to the mattress scene or just aren’t looking to spend too much on a new mattress, Emma might be the brand for you.

Puffy Mattresses vs. Nectar Mattresses

We now have Nectar, a proudly New York-raised mattress manufacturer. Once viewed as one of the fastest-growing e-businesses in the US as well as a top place to work, Nectar promises a suite of different mattresses shipped directly to your door.

Nectar has similar foam technology to Puffy, and offers a wider range of mattresses. Will this more extensive catalog be what brings Nectar above Puffy as a bed brand?

Types of Mattresses Available

Nectar has not 1, not 2, but 3 total mattresses available on its website for purchase, all with varying degrees of softness, plushness, and even material compositions. Already Nectar has Puffy beat with the number of choices, but it’s still to be determined if more choices equal a better mattress brand.

Nectar’s original 12-inch Nectar Memory Foam mattress was their first mattress. This mattress comes with five separate layers, again similar to how Puffy designed its foam mattresses. Their Nectar Smart Layer is the first layer. This gel memory foam helps relieve pressure due to its high density construction.

The Nectar Smart layer is supported by two additional foams: the Nectar Dynamic support Layer and their Stay Stable Support Layer. These foams help stabilize your body as you sleep, minimize motion transfer, and keep the mattress on the base. All this is enveloped in Nectar’s quilted Cool Cover, which helps regulate temperature, and Nectar’s shift-resistant lower cover, which allows stability by acting as an outer grip to the bed frame. If you’re looking for a mattress with a medium firmness that helps your body to be enveloped in memory foam while you sleep, the Nectar Memory Foam mattress might be good for you.

The Nectar Memory Foam mattress has a premier version, akin to the Puffy and Puffy Lux versions. The Nectar Premier memory foam mattress has all the bells and whistles of the standard Nectar Memory Foam mattress. It also comes with an upgraded ActiveCoolHD ActiveSmart Layer that is thicker and more sophisticated. This additional inch of foam brings the total mattress height to 13-inches. It is specifically designed to further assist in keeping the mattress cool and regulating your body temperature while you sleep.

The Nectar Premier Copper mattress is the last and most expensive mattress available from Nectar. This mattress combines everything good about the previous two Nectar mattresses and adds more thickness to each layer. The mattress is 14 inches thick, so you won’t feel anything but the supportive and plushy comfort. To add to this, the maximum temperature regulating quilted cover is upgraded to include copper-infused threads that help dissipate heat and other heat conductive fibers that keep the mattress cool to the touch.

Price Point of Mattresses

If we’re talking about price points, then Nectar comes in reasonably affordable $499 for their Twin sized original memory foam mattress. These mattresses are available in a full size or larger at an additional $899.

The premium versions are more expensive and will take more out of your pocket. A queen-sized Nectar Premier will push you back $1299, while the even more luxurious Nectar Premier Copper will cost you $1699. Still, these mattresses are already a great deal thicker than the ones Puffy has on offer. The Puffy Lux still comes in more expensive at its largest sizes compared to the largest of these Nectar mattresses.

Even better for Nectar is that all purchases usually come with $399 in freebies. These freebies can change according to the season, but usually include pillows, protectors, and mattress covers. Each purchase also comes with a lifetime warranty, a full-year trial, and free shipping to make the purchase that much easier.

Final Winner

Nectar appears to be a better choice than Puffy in terms of cost and the sheer number of options that are available to customers. Nectar offers additional benefits that make a Nectar mattress more valuable than Puffy.

The only flaw in Nectar would be the availability of its products to non-US residents. While Puffy exclusively ships to Canada, Nectar exclusively ships to the US. Your choice will eventually be dictated by where you are located in the world.

Puffy Mattresses vs. Casper Mattresses

Casper had to be included. Not including Casper would be like not including Coca-cola or Pepsi when making a list comparing what the best soft drink would be. Despite Casper’s price point being a common comparison for newer brands, it remains one of the top choices for most shoppers when looking for a new mattress.

Puffy makes Casper’s higher prices a reason to choose the Puffy mattress. Will Casper bow out to this newer Canadian brand?

There are many types of mattresses available

Unlike Puffy’s limited options, Casper impresses with four different mattresses to choose from, 3 of them having two variants each. Casper offers seven different mattresses, with three of them having two variants each.

Casper’s first mattress is a traditional foam mattress that uses two layers of foam for its total construction. This is Casper’s entry level mattress. It is known as the Element mattress. Casper uses their proprietary Airscape perforated foam as the top layer of their mattresses to better let heat escape while you sleep. Their high-density foam base is below this, which prevents sagging while you sleep and supports your entire body.

The Casper Original is next on the Casper catalog. The Casper original uses three different layers of foam now, the first being the classic Airscape foam, which is then supported by their Zoned Support Memory Foam and the standard base support foam. The Zoned Support foam is unique because it is essentially an area-specific memory foam, with some parts being firmer than others depending on which component needs more support (hence the term zoned).

What’s interesting is that you can get the Casper Original as a hybrid mattress. Hybrid mattresses have become more popular because they combine new memory foam technology and the reliable design of inner coils that are better than older mattresses. These Casper coils add lift to your bed and structural support to help you stay in bed when you need to and get out of it when you’re done.

These two mattresses are more expensive than any we have seen before. The Casper Nova Hybrid Snow Mattress was specifically made for heat regulation. The mattress’s multilayer foam and coil technology is enhanced with cooling gels and thermal bands.

Lastly, the Wave Hybrid is Casper’s premium mattress with supportive sleep in mind. This mattress features the same cooling technology as the Nova Hybrid Snow mattresses. However, the Wave’s selling point is its additional three layers of perforated foam, giving you the support you need without being overly stiff. Experience proper spinal support and comfort while you rest with Casper’s most premium throughout bed design.

Pricing Point for Mattresses

Casper’s biggest problem is its price. It’s no secret that Casper tends to edge towards the premium side when pricing their mattresses, but the price you’ll need to pay for some of their more premium mattresses is ridiculous at times. First Lite Cirrus Puffy Vs Kelvin Lite

Casper has its entry-level Element mattress at a manageable $545 for a twin size. At queen size and larger, you can expect to spend at least $800 to be able to get your hands on a Casper Element.

Things start to get expensive when you consider the Original, Nova, and Wave variants, as their initial mattresses all cross $1,000 easily when considering a queen-size mattress. This number doubles for the Nova and Wave variants, with the King size reaching about $4,500 for the Wave mattress.

Final Winner

It’s easy to say Puffy wins out here for its simplicity and its price point. It won’t make sense for people on a budget to spend close to double for a Casper mattress when they can get a mattress that is just as good (or better at times) for a much more manageable price.

Puffy Mattresses vs. Nolah Mattresses

Nolah, another American-owned mattress company, specializes in hybrid and foam mattresses. Nolah does not use outdated materials like the old memory foam and pure foam latex but rather their patented AirFoam mattress layers for all their mattresses. First Lite Cirrus Puffy Vs Kelvin Lite

Nolah’s foam is stated to be 100% temperature neutral and provides better pressure relief for your joints. Let’s compare this to the Puffy mattresses.

Types of Mattresses Available

Nolah has three distinct mattresses on offer, the Noah Original 10-inch, the upgraded Nolah Signature 12-inch, and the luxury Nolah Evolution 15-inch mattress. Both the Original and the Signature share many of the construction designs as both are fully foam mattresses. The Nolah Evolution is a hybrid design that uses Nolah’s inner-coil configuration.

Signature and Original mattresses have the same three layers of foam. The first is Nolah’s AirFoam, which provides temperature regulation and pressure relief. These functions are further supported by the two additional layers of foam, the Deep Resilience Foam and High-Density Base Foam. Signature mattresses have extra thickness in their foam layers, and an additional firm AirFoam layer underneath the base foam. This allows you to easily adjust how firm or soft you would like your mattress to feel. First Lite Cirrus Puffy Vs Kelvin Lite

The Evolution is Nolah’s most premier mattress available, and that’s due to the additional HDMax Eco Support Coils that Nolah developed to give better pressure relief, extra cooling, and better structural support, especially around the edges.

Pricing Point for Mattresses

Nolah is a direct-to-consumer mattress that was launched in the last few years. However, their prices are comparable to what higher-end mattress dealers charge for their mattresses. Their starting Queen size Original mattress comes in at $899 and doubles to $1600 if you opt for the Nolah Evolution. Although it’s not as expensive as Purple or Casper, it’s still not a bargain.

Final Winner

Despite being higher in the price range, Nolah still comes out cheaper in entry compared to Puffy. Nolah has more options than Puffy, which makes it a better mattress dealer. However, you will need to be in the United States to get their wide selection of mattresses.

Puffy Mattress vs. DreamCloud Mattress

Our final contender for the list, DreamCloud’s mattresses are built with luxury in mind, without reaching inordinate prices. DreamCloud is a hybrid mattress brand that specializes in providing quality mattresses at affordable prices. First Lite Cirrus Puffy Vs Kelvin Lite

Let’s take a look at what DreamCloud has to share.

There are many types of mattresses available

DreamCloud has three mattresses that they sell on their website, the DreamCloud original, their higher-end DreamCloud Premier, and the DreamCloud Premier Rest. Each bed uses similar hybrid construction of coil and foam, with the higher-end models adding more layers and thickness to the composition.

The DreamCloud original, and by extension the rest of the DreamCloud series of mattresses, start with five essential layers to how their mattresses are made up. Their gel memory foam is the first layer. It contours to your body as you sleep. This is then supported by their Sink-In-Just-Right layer, the Targeted Support Coil layer, and the essential base foam layer, which all help the top layer provide optimum comfort without sacrificing support. This is all enveloped with their top layer of cashmere-quilted top mattress layer to give a nice soft and cooling touch when you lay on the mattress. First Lite Cirrus Puffy Vs Kelvin Lite

The DreamCloud Premier Rest and DreamCloud Premier Rest are identical mattresses. They have additional layers of foam and higher support coils. The Premier Rest gives the Premier Rest a higher height. This is the main difference between the two mattresses. Each Premier version comes with pressure-relieving foam layers and enhanced support layers, all designed with your optimum comfort in mind.

Price Point of Mattresses

Despite having three mattresses of varying qualities available on their website, DreamCloud does keep their entry-level prices accessible to most at $699 for their Twin size original mattress. Though some DreamCloud versions can be a bit pricey, they never breach the $2,000 mark. This is a huge feat for a brand that creates a more complex hybrid mattress without increasing prices. First Lite Cirrus Puffy Vs Kelvin Lite

Each purchase also comes with $399 worth of goods like additional pillows, mattress protectors, and bedsheets. You can rest assured that your DreamCloud purchase comes with a lifetime warranty as well as a full year of no-strings-attached sleeping trial.

Final Winner

DreamCloud’s mattresses are more flexible and supportive than traditional memory foam mattresses Puffy, while still being affordable. If you’re part of DreamCloud’s serviceable areas, we would highly suggest trying one out for you.

In Summary First Lite Cirrus Puffy Vs Kelvin Lite

It seems that Puffy is correct about its claim of being more accessible in price than Casper. Compared to what other brands are currently doing now, Puffy appears to be lagging in terms of price, functionality, and reach.

Puffy will be a top choice for Canadian residents. But if you’re a US resident, you won’t be able to get Puffy to your doorstep anyway, so we recommend going with another brand that services the US directly. If we were to choose, DreamCloud’s advanced hybrid technologies seem to shine amongst all the brands we’ve reviewed so far, and we would suggest giving their website a visit if ever you’re in the market for a mattress.
