Puffy Vs Helix

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.

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: An Overview Puffy Vs Helix

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.

There are many types of mattresses available

Puffy has two mattresses available on its website, the Puffy Original and 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.

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. Climate Control foam and the firm support base are added to the Cooling Cloud foam top. 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. Both the Puffy Lux, and Original are covered in hypoallergenic and grippy bottom and top mattress covers.

Pricing Point for 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.

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

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. This hybrid and balanced softness can be attributed to their memory foam and latex foam technologies. Their leading foam later used in all their mattresses is called Airgocell and is designed to adapt to pressure to better respond to body movements while sleeping.

Emma’s visco elastic memory foam acts as a second layer between the Airgocell layer and the supporting 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.

Emma sells only the original Puffy mattress, unlike other sellers. 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-sized mattress is less expensive than Puffy’s twin.

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. 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 comes in so much cheaper than Puffy while delivering close to the same type of premium comfort. Emma offers similar customer protection plans with the same warranties and trial plans as Puffy. Emma may be the right brand for you if you are new to the mattress market or don’t want to spend too much.

Puffy Mattresses vs. Nectar Mattresses

We now have Nectar, a proudly New York-raised mattress manufacturer. Nectar is a company that promises to deliver a range of mattresses directly to your home. It was once regarded as one of America’s fastest-growing ebusinesses.

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. Although Nectar already has a clear advantage over Puffy in terms of the variety of options, it is still unclear if more choices will equal better quality mattresses.

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. Both assist in stabilizing your body while you sleep, minimizing any motion transfer, and keeping the mattress in place on the bed 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.

There is a Premier version of the Nectar Memory Foam mattress that looks similar to the Puffy and Puffylux versions. The Nectar Premier memory Foam mattress comes with all the same features as the standard Nectar Memory Foam. It also comes with an upgraded ActiveCoolHD ActiveSmart Layer that is thicker and more sophisticated. The total height of the mattress is now 13 inches. It is specifically designed to further assist in keeping the mattress cool and regulating your body temperature while you sleep.

Lastly, the most premium mattress that Nectar has available is their Nectar Premier Copper mattress. 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.

Pricing Point for Mattresses

If we’re talking about price points, then Nectar comes in reasonably affordable $499 for their Twin sized original memory foam mattress. 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. The queen-sized Nectar Premier will set you back $1299, while you can get the more luxurious Nectar Premier Copper for $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.

Even better for Nectar is that all purchases usually come with $399 in freebies. These freebies may change depending on the season but typically include mattress covers, protectors, and pillows. 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. Puffy ships only to Canada; Nectar ships only 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 makes Casper’s higher prices a reason to choose the Puffy mattress. Will Casper bow out to this newer Canadian brand?

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. 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. Below this is their high-density foam base that prevents sagging and supports your whole body while you rest.

The Casper Original is next on the Casper catalog. 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 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. 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.

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. Casper’s premium throughout bed design will provide you with the best spinal support and comfort.

Pricing Point for 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. Puffy Vs Helix

Casper has its entry-level Element mattress at a manageable $545 for a twin size. Casper Element mattresses in queen sizes and larger will cost you at least $800.

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

Puffy is the clear winner here because of its simplicity and price. 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 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. Puffy Vs Helix

Nolah’s foam claims to be 100 percent temperature neutral, providing better pressure relief for your joints. Let’s see how this compares to the mattresses Puffy has on offer.

Types of Mattresses Available

Nolah offers three different mattresses: the Noah Original 10-inch, Nolah Signature 12-inch and the Nolah Evolution 15-inch. 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.

The Original and Signature mattresses share the same first three layers of foam, the first being the layer of Nolah’s AirFoam to provide pressure relief and temperature regulation. These functions are further supported by the two additional layers of foam, the Deep Resilience Foam and High-Density Base Foam. The Signature mattress differs by adding extra thickness to its foam layers and having an extra firm AirFoam layer beneath the base foam so you can easily switch how firm or how plush you want your mattress to be. Puffy Vs Helix

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. The starting Queen size Original mattress costs $899, and the Nolah Evolution doubles that to $1600. 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’s variety of options to pick also helps its case as the better mattress dealer, but you’ll need to be located in the United States if you want to enjoy their range of mattresses.

Puffy Mattress vs. DreamCloud Mattress

DreamCloud mattresses, our final contender, are luxuriously designed without exceedingly high 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. Puffy Vs Helix

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. The bed’s hybrid coil-and-foam construction is similar. However, the higher-end models have more layers and thickness.

Five essential layers are required to make the DreamCloud original and all DreamCloud mattresses. The first layer is their gel memory foam made to contour to your body while you rest. The second layer is their Sink-In-Just-Right layer. This layer supports the essential base foam layer. These help provide optimal 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. Puffy Vs Helix

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. Every Premier version includes pressure-relieving foam layers as well as enhanced support layers. All designed to provide maximum comfort.

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 says a lot for a mattress brand that makes a more complicated hybrid mattress approach without raising prices too much. Puffy Vs Helix

Each purchase also comes with $399 worth of goods like additional pillows, mattress protectors, and bedsheets. Coupled with a lifetime warranty and a full-year worth of no-strings-attached sleep trial, you can literally rest easy with your DreamCloud purchase.

Final Winner

DreamCloud’s mattresses offer more variety and support than the conventional memory foam mattresses Puffy has while keeping the same price point checked. We recommend that you try one if you are in DreamCloud’s serviceable regions.

In Summary Puffy Vs Helix

Puffy seems to be right about the claim that it is more affordable than Casper in terms of price. Puffy seems to be behind other brands in terms of functionality, price, 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. 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.
