Fleece Vs Puffy Appalachian Trail

puffy-vs-competitors

Puffy is a leading direct-to-consumer mattress dealer in the country. 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.

While Puffy remains one of the premier North American mattress deals that specialize in fully foam mattresses, they are by far not the only players vying for customer attention. What does Puffy do against other well-known brands? Let’s see.

The Puffy Mattress: An Overview Fleece Vs Puffy Appalachian Trail

Before getting into any of the comparisons, it’s good to review the ins and outs of Puffy as a mattress company, so we have a better sense of how it stacks up compared to the competition.

Types of Mattresses Available

Puffy offers two mattress options on its website: the Puffy Original or the Puffy Lux. Both mattresses come with a complete run 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.

Each Puffy mattress starts with its Cooling Cloud foam, a proprietary foam composition made by Puffy that ensures an even transfer of heat while maintaining a soft plush to better support your body while it sleeps. Assisting the Cooling Cloud foam top layer are Climate Control foam and the pressure-relieving firm support base. Climate Control foam is an intermediary layer between top gel foam and bottom support base, increasing the mattress’s ability to regulate temperature. The support base is the final foundation of the mattress. It gives it structure and prevents you from sinking too deeply into the mattress. The entire mattress was created with temperature regulation, spine alignment, pressure relief and temperature regulation in mind.

The Puffy Lux comes with an extra layer of foam, the Plush Dual Cloud Foam. This foam gives you two additional inches and helps to ease tension from long days. The Puffy Lux and the Puffy Original are wrapped in a hypoallergenic and grippy top and bottom mattress cover, respectively.

Price Point of Mattresses

Price is always going to be a determining factor when it comes to deciding if the mattress will be the one for you. 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. The Puffy Lux mattress will cost you more than CAD$2,000, and the exact size of the original is also available.

Let’s compare Puffy to other brands online, now that we have all the details.

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.

Ready to ship anywhere, will This European-designed bed beat puffy?

Types of Mattresses Available

Emma Original uses a proprietary foam technology similar to Puffy. It is designed to provide a plush and soft feel while still maintaining the structure of a mattress. Their memory foam and latex technology are responsible for this hybrid and balanced softness. 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.

Emma’s visco elastic memory foam acts as a second layer between the Airgocell layer and the supporting base layer. This is similar to Puffy’s construction of their Cooling Cloud foam and their pressure release foam layers on top of their 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.

Pricing Point for Mattresses

Emma has only one type of mattress so it will be much easier to compare prices to Puffy’s original mattress. Emma makes it easier for customers to test their mattresses. Their entry-level price point starts at 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.

Also, Emma’s single mattress offering avoids any of the tough higher price choices that Puffy has. 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. They have their original and premium versions of their mattresses and additional bed accessories like coverings, sheets, pillows, and even bed bases.

But Emma does have one advantage on their side: 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. This expanded catalog will be the difference between Nectar and Puffy.

There are many types of mattresses available

Nectar offers 3 mattresses on its website. Each mattress can be purchased with different degrees of softness, plushness and 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. The five layers of this mattress are similar to the Puffy 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 then supported by two more 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. This is all wrapped in Nectar’s quilted Cool Cover that regulates temperature and Nectar’s shift-resistant lower covering, which provides stability by securing the mattress 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 comes with all the same features as the standard Nectar Memory Foam. However, it comes with a thicker and more advanced Nectar Smart Layer, now with enhanced ActiveCoolHD. 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. The Nectar Premier Copper mattress is a combination of the best features of the two previous Nectar mattresses, and adds thickness to each layer. At 14-inches, you’ll be sure not to be feeling anything but the plushy and supportive mattress. The maximum temperature-regulating quilted cover has been upgraded to include copper-infused threads, which help dissipate heat.

Pricing Point for Mattresses

Nectar’s Twin-sized memory foam mattress is priced at a reasonable $499. You won’t need to add too much if you want a queen size and larger, as these mattresses come in at $899 and up.

Getting any of the premium versions will be a bit heavier on the pocket, naturally. A queen-sized Nectar Premier will push you back $1299, while the even more luxurious Nectar Premier Copper will cost you $1699. These mattresses are still thicker than those offered by Puffy. The Puffy Lux still comes in more expensive at its largest sizes compared to the largest of these Nectar mattresses.

Nectar offers $399 worth of freebies with every purchase. 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. Even the value of each purchase of a Nectar mattress is better by comparison as Nectar throws in additional freebies on top of the purchase itself.

Nectar’s only problem would be its inability to sell products to residents outside the US. 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

We had to include Casper. 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 uses Casper’s higher price points as a clear point to try out the cheaper Puffy mattress. Will Casper bow out to this newer Canadian brand?

Types of Mattresses Available

Casper offers four options to choose from instead of Puffy’s limited selections. Three of the variants have two variations each. This means that Casper has roughly seven mattresses you can choose from depending on your sleep style and preferences.

Casper’s first mattress, a traditional foam mattress, uses two layers of foam to construct its entire construction. Known as the Element mattress, this is Casper’s entry-level mattress for those looking for something simple with no frills. Casper’s Airscape perforated foam is used as the top layer on their mattresses. This allows heat to escape better while you sleep. Their high-density foam base is below this, which prevents sagging while you sleep and supports your entire body.

Next up on the Casper catalog is the Casper Original. Three layers of foam are used in the Casper Original. The first is the Airscape foam. This is followed by the Zoned Support Memory Foam. The Zoned Support foam is unique in that it is an area-specific memory foam. This means that certain parts are firmer depending on what component requires more support.

The Casper Original can be purchased 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. Casper coils provide support and lift for your mattress and help you get out when you’re done.

These two mattresses are more expensive than any we have seen before. The Casper Nova Hybrid Snow Mattress is specifically designed for heat regulation. Its multilayer foam and coil technology are excited with cooling gels, thermal bands, and even cooling mattress covers to help bring the mattress a much desired cool-touch sensation.

The Wave Hybrid, Casper’s premium mattress that offers supportive sleep, is the last. 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.

Price Point of Mattresses

Here comes Casper’s most popular pain point: 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. Fleece Vs Puffy Appalachian Trail

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

The Original, Nova and Wave variants are all expensive. A queen-sized mattress is not cheap, so they cost over $1,000. The Nova and Wave variants double this number, while the Wave mattress is about $4,500.

Final Winner

It’s easy to say Puffy wins out here for its simplicity and its price point. People on a tight budget won’t be able to pay twice as much for a Casper mattress if they can find a mattress that is equally good, or better, at a lower price.

Puffy Mattresses vs. Nolah Mattresses

Nolah, another American-owned mattress company, specializes in hybrid and foam mattresses. Nolah doesn’t use old materials such as pure foam latex and memory foam, but instead uses their AirFoam mattress layers. Fleece Vs Puffy Appalachian Trail

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. The Signature and the Original share many similarities in construction as they are both fully foam mattresses. The Nolah Evolution proves to be the outlier as it is hybrid in design and uses Nolah’s bed 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. Fleece Vs Puffy Appalachian Trail

Nolah’s Evolution mattress is Nolah’s best-selling model. This is due to the HDMax Eco Support Coils Nolah created to provide better pressure relief, additional cooling, and structural support around the edges.

Pricing Point for Mattresses

Despite being one of the newer direct-to-consumer mattresses out there, Nolah prices close to how higher-end mattress dealers price their mattresses. Their starting Queen size Original mattress comes in at $899 and doubles to $1600 if you opt for the Nolah Evolution. While it is not as bad as brands like Casper or Purple, it certainly isn’t a bargain by any means.

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. Specializing in hybrid mattresses, DreamCloud has endeavored to be an accessible brand for all while providing the same quality you can expect from legacy mattress brands. Fleece Vs Puffy Appalachian Trail

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

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. The first layer is their gel memory foam made to contour to your body while you rest. 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. Fleece Vs Puffy Appalachian Trail

The DreamCloud Premier and Premier Rest are the same mattresses, adding additional layers of foam and taller support coils. The Premier Rest gives the Premier Rest a higher height. This is the main difference between the two mattresses. Every Premier version includes pressure-relieving foam layers as well as enhanced support layers. All designed to provide maximum comfort.

Pricing Point for 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. Although some DreamCloud models can be quite expensive, they don’t exceed $2,000 in price. This is a huge feat for a brand that creates a more complex hybrid mattress without increasing prices. Fleece Vs Puffy Appalachian Trail

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. We recommend that you try one if you are in DreamCloud’s serviceable regions.

In Summary Fleece Vs Puffy Appalachian Trail

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.

If you’re a Canadian resident, Puffy is sure to be on your list of go-to brands for mattresses. Puffy won’t deliver to the US if you are a US citizen. We recommend that you choose another brand that serves the US directly. DreamCloud’s innovative hybrid technologies are what we think would be the best among all brands. We recommend visiting their website if you’re looking for a mattress.
