Slick Vs Puffy

puffy-vs-competitors

Puffy is a leading direct-to-consumer mattress dealer in the country. Puffy is proudly Canadian-owned, and operated. Its proprietary foam technologies like their Cooling Cloud foam or Climate Comfort foam have made it a leader in the bedding market.

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

The Puffy Mattress: A Review Slick Vs Puffy

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.

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. 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. 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.

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 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.

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. 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?

There are many 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. Their memory foam and latex technology are responsible for this hybrid and balanced softness. 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. 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 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.

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. 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 uses similar foam technologies to Puffy and provides different mattresses that expand its catalog of beds available. 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 first mattress is their original Nectar Memory Foam 12-inch 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. Both assist in stabilizing your body while you sleep, minimizing any motion transfer, and keeping the mattress in place on the bed 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. This foam is specially designed to help regulate your body temperature and keep the mattress cool 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. 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. Still, these mattresses are already a great deal thicker than the ones Puffy has on offer. The Puffy Lux is still more expensive than the Nectar mattresses in its largest size.

Nectar offers $399 worth of freebies with every purchase. 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 seems to have Puffy beat in terms of price and sheer options available to shoppers. 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.

The only flaw in Nectar would be the availability of its products to non-US residents. Puffy ships only to Canada; Nectar ships only to the US. The location of your chosen destination will ultimately determine where you live.

Puffy Mattresses vs. Casper Mattresses

Casper had to be included. Casper was not included in a comparison of the best soft drinks. 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. Can Casper be beaten by this 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. Casper offers seven different mattresses, with three of them having two variants each.

Casper’s first mattress, a traditional foam mattress, uses two layers of foam to construct its entire construction. This is Casper’s entry level mattress. It is known as the Element mattress. 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. 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 in that it is an area-specific memory foam. This means that certain parts are firmer depending on what component requires more support.

What’s interesting is that you can get the Casper Original as a hybrid mattress. Hybrid mattresses are more popular these days as they combine the new memory foam technology with the consistently improved and reliable design of inner coils you may be used to in 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. You can get this with the same cooling technology found in 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.

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. Slick Vs Puffy

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. 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 is another proudly American mattress company that specializes in both foam mattresses and hybrid mattresses. Nolah doesn’t use old materials such as pure foam latex and memory foam, but instead uses their AirFoam mattress layers. Slick Vs Puffy

Nolah’s foam claims to be 100 percent temperature neutral, providing better pressure relief for your joints. Let’s compare this to the Puffy mattresses.

Types of Mattresses Available

Nolah offers three different mattresses: the Noah Original 10-inch, Nolah Signature 12-inch and the Nolah Evolution 15-inch. 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. The following two layers, which are the Deep Resiliiance Foam and the High-Density Base Foam, provide additional support to these functions. 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. Slick Vs Puffy

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

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

Final Winner

Nolah is still cheaper than Puffy, despite being more expensive in the price range. 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

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. Slick Vs Puffy

Let’s see what else DreamCloud has to offer.

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. 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. Slick Vs Puffy

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

Every purchase comes with $399 worth goods such as additional pillows, mattress protectors and sheets. 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 Slick Vs Puffy

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.
