Why our sleep experts loved it
Casper has been taking the mattress industry by storm in the UK since early 2016, creating one-type-fits-all mattresses with huge success. Now though, for 2020 and with an exclusive partnership with one of the biggest online retailers, the popular manufacturer has upgraded their original mattress with more support and bounce.
Let's look at what makes the Casper Hybrid Mattress great.
This mattress is made from 3 foam layers. The first of these layers, a breathable cell-foam construction, the second, responsive memory foam and then, tucked between them, an adaptive third layer separating the two core foam layers from inner micro springs, all of which are encased in foam and help offer body contouring and stability.
More about that top layer, in this case the open-cell foam mentioned previously. This technology improves the cooling within the foam, see, one of the things that people often forget is that foam can get quite warm which can be comforting, but not in the summer and not while you are trying to sleep. The open cell construction in this layer protects against that and ensures you get a cool nights sleep.
Onto the next layer, in this case, deep memory foam. Who doesn't love memory foam? With the cooling layer above, this layer is now free to operate independently, giving you deep body contouring and that sinking feel that you want and love from standard memory foam. All the downsides of memory foam in this instance are generally dismissed due to the top layer referenced above.
Now, the transition layer, this is standard high-density foam that helps give the soft layers above a base before delving into pocket springs. The separation is necessary to allow each layer to work independently without being impacted by the next layer in the chain, in this case, springs.
Finally, you have the support layer which is made from the standard hard foam layer that comes with other Casper models, this works well with the springs as it gives a little bit more support while not being too firm to impact the soft layers above.
The Casper Hybrid Mattress, sticking to it's tech origins and marketing copy, is designed in non other than Silicone Valley, however, production of the UK model happens in the UK meaning that the mattress passes all necessary regulations including the important BS 7177 mark ensuring that the components are of low risk fire hazard while meeting the laws necessary without TCPP. Another bit of good news is the additional certifications associated to this model, being CertiPUR certified in the polyurethane foam used throughout.
So, what else is there to say? We've covered the basics of what makes up the mattress, but what about the offer itself? Well, Casper offer something a little different to many other manufacturers, namely, a 100-night free trial. What this means is that should you dislike your mattress within the first 100 days, you simply make one phone call and the mattress will be collected (and recycled), giving you your money back and the opportunity to make another purchase. Odds however, are strongly against this, with so many positive reviews amassed about this product and manufacturer, it's hard to find too many that do not find it suitable, after all, that's it's main pitch, it's suitable for pretty much everyone.
Now, you've got the mattress, you love it, you're not returning it within 100 days, what else? 10 years warranty. That's right 10 years. That's 9 years more than pretty much every other manufacturer and gives you protection that actually outlasts the average life expectancy of most other mattresses (pegged at 7 years). That alone shows the huge confidence that Casper have in this mattress and should be enough to convince you to pull the trigger on this fantastic addition to the Casper range. I love it so much and I'm sort of tempted to upgrade myself.
