Memory Foam Mattress at Manageable Price? | Casper Mattress Review 2019

– Hi, I’m Keith, founder
and General Manager of Tuck. Today, we’ll be taking a look at the original Casper mattress. (upbeat music) Testing the mattress today,
we have our lightweight sleeper Rachel, our
average-weight sleeper Jackson, and our heavyweight sleeper Isaac. Setting up the original
Casper mattress is quite easy. We recommend enlisting a helper as it’s a bit bulky and heavy for one person. Move the mattress to
its final destination, unbox and unwrap it, and
watch it come to life. Full recovery should happen
within the first 12 hours. The original Casper mattress
is a 10-inch mixed foam bed. The cover is made of 100% polyester. The comfort layers in the mattress are made up of one and a
half inches of poly-foam, one and a half inches of 4PCF memory foam, and one and a half inches
of 2PCF zoned poly-foam. The support core consists of five inches of 1.8 PCF poly-foam. The feel of a mattress is largely determined by its
firmness and construction. This tends to be fairly uniform across each mattress type. The original Casper mattress
has a mixed foam feel. It’s comfortable and conforming while still being responsive
with a light bounce. We’ve placed the original Casper at a five on the firmness scale, making it a medium mattress. (uplifting music) In the mattress world, support is defined as spinal alignment. In this test, we’ll be looking at how well each of our sleeper’s spines are kept in alignment
when lying on their side. As you can see, the original Casper offers good support across light
and average-weight sleepers, and slightly less so for
heavy-weight sleepers. Motion isolation refers to how well a mattress isolates or absorbs motion. This is important for those that sleep with a partner so you
don’t feel their movements across the surface of the bed. The original Casper absorbs and minimizes motion significantly, as
shown by the water tests performed by Isaac on the mattress. Edge support refers to
how much your mattress holds you up or pushes
back against you while sitting on or sleeping close
to the side of the bed. Mattresses with worse edge support are harder to get in and out of, and can leave sleepers with
the feeling of roll-off, which is akin to the mattress
ejecting the sleeper. We found the original Casper
to have poor edge support, especially with heavier sleepers, which is similar to other
mixed-foam mattresses. Using our 2D and 3D
pressure-mapping tools, we’re able to look at how
well mattresses relieve pressure on the body. The scale goes from blue to green, to yellow, to red indicating increasing amounts of pressure pushing
back against each sleeper. When it hits red, there’s
a higher likelihood of reduced blood flow in those specific sections of the body. (uplifting music) Our testing found that the
original Casper mattress offers good pressure relief
for most sleepers and weights, the exception being heavier sleepers who might find it a bit lacking based on firmness and height. Temperature neutrality refers to whether a mattress disperses heat from your body, allowing for breathability and airflow. We found the original Casper mattress absorbs minimal body heat and sleeps fairly cool compared to its
other all-foam competitors. Now, let’s review how the original Casper is stacked up in our mattress testing. The original Casper
scored highly for motion isolation and support for
light to average-weight sleepers, and less so
for heavyweight sleepers. Edge support was lacking
on the original Casper, which is common for similarly-constructed all-foam mattresses. The original Casper
scored highly for pressure relief, and temperature
neutrality is good. Heavier sleepers might not find the original Casper offers
the support that they need. Stomach and back sleepers
may prefer a firmer mattress in the original Casper. Lighter and average-weight sleepers with sensitive pressure
points in their hips or shoulders will depreciate
the Casper mattress. If you’re considering the original Casper, it comes with a 100-night sleep trial. So you can test the bed risk-free and ensure that it’s the right match. Additionally, the mattress ships free and comes with a 10-year warranty.
