Puffy Vs Mint

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.

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. How does Puffy hold up against some of the other popular brands out there? Let’s find out.

The Puffy Mattress: A Review Puffy Vs Mint

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 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.

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 is the final foundation of the mattress. It gives it structure and prevents you from sinking too deeply into the mattress. This whole mattress composition was designed with proper pressure relief, spinal alignment, 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

When it comes to choosing the right mattress for you, price is going to be a major determining factor. Puffy’s pricepoint falls within the middle of the price spectrum, not too expensive yet not necessarily on the cheap side either.

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 a common sight online these days, especially recently through their rigorous usage of online marketing. While Puffy is a proudly Canadian company, Emma’s source of their technologies comes from their German-born designs geared explicitly towards temperature control and 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.

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. Emma’s mattress’s supportive foundational foam, the bottom layer, has ridges around it. This is to help with spinal alignment and counter any pressure.

Unlike Puffy, Emma only sells the original version of their popular mattress. Emma does not sell Emma Lux or Emma Premier types, but the standard 10-inch mattress Emma uses to pull 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 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. Emma has made it so that you don’t have to choose between the standard and premium versions.

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.

But Emma does have one advantage on their side: price. Emma is a lot cheaper than Puffy, but offers the same premium comfort. Emma has similar customer protection plans, with warranties and trial plans identical to that of 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

From European design, we now move to the proudly New York-raised mattress company Nectar. 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. 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. 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. The Nectar Memory Foam mattress may be a good choice if you are looking for a mattress that is medium-firm and allows your body to be wrapped in memory foam as you sleep.

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 has all the bells and whistles of the standard Nectar Memory Foam mattress. 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.

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

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.

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. 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. 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. Casper was not included in a comparison of the best soft drinks. Casper’s high price is a common comparison with newer brands but it remains a top choice for many shoppers looking for a 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. 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 uses their proprietary Airscape perforated foam as the top layer of their mattresses to better let heat escape while you sleep. Below this is their high-density foam base that prevents sagging and supports your whole body while you rest.

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 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.

The following two mattress types are much more premium than what we’ve seen previously. The Casper Nova Hybrid Snow Mattress was specifically made 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. The Wave’s main selling point is the three additional layers of perforated foam. This provides the support you require without feeling stiff. Casper’s premium throughout bed design will provide you with the best spinal support and comfort.

Price Point of 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. Puffy Vs Mint

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. 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 doesn’t use old materials such as pure foam latex and memory foam, but instead uses their AirFoam mattress layers. Puffy Vs Mint

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.

There are many 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 proves to be the outlier as it is hybrid in design and uses Nolah’s bed 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 Mint

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.

Price Point of 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. 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

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. Puffy Vs Mint

Let’s see what else DreamCloud has to offer.

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. 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. To give the mattress a cool and soft touch, they have added a cashmere-quilted top layer. Puffy Vs Mint

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.

Price Point of Mattresses

DreamCloud has three mattress options, each with varying quality. However, their entry-level pricing is $699 for the 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 Mint

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 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 Mint

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