Let me start by saying that most the companies we are going to list below do not even own a sewing machine much less produce mattresses. Most are simply marketing companies who farm out the hard stuff to other manufacturers which means their cost factors are much higher than ours which is why we simply offer much more bang for the buck.
Of course we list them first because they are the ones spending the most in advertising and social media. Here's what we know from their website about the design -
The bottom: 6.5 inches of 1.8 pcf poly foam, 1.5 inches of 4.0 pcf memory foam, and 1.5 inches of 3.3 pcf synthetic dunlop latex foam ( now replaced with less expensive open cell poly foam).
This is a one firmness fits all, sounds great but really? How can you possibly think that most people like the same firmness when there are so many factors that go into getting the proper spinal alignment? Are you telling us a 300 lb back sleeper and a 100 lb side sleeper will both enjoy the one firmness fits all concept. Yeah, I don't think so. Just the difference between sleeping on your side vs sleeping on your back would change what works best since back sleepers typically like it much firmer than do side sleepers. It's great marketing but not really practical in the real world.
Sedona Sleep Specs
If you include our optional 3" Talalay Latex Mattress topper here's how we compare to Casper - 7" of 1.9 pcf High Density Certi-Pur-US flexible urethane foam, not 6.5" of 1.8 foam. Comfort layer - 3" of real Talalay Latex consisting of approx. 40% natural latex rubber and 60% synthetic rubber, not 1.5" of open cell poly foam. Then they add another 1.5" of memory foam which is widely known to choke off air flow and add a heat factor that latex does not have. Talalay latex is about twice as expensive as is memory foam and for good reason and our King size is only $45 more than Casper.
Our 3" Talalay latex mattress topper is really what separates us from the rest. You can choose the firmness, not a predefined one firmness fits all design. You can even have a different firmness choice on the left side vs the right side for those who's sleeping styles or weights are much different. In addition the reason we don't attach this part of the mattress to the bed is so you can take it with you if you travel. You also have the option to request a comfort exchange just in case it's not exactly how you want it. You can't do that with a Casper! Our entire top 3" is Oeko-Tex 100 certified which is a much higher standard than Certipur. Only the top 1.5" is Oeko-Tex 100 on the Casper.
I think if you take time to really evaluate the differences you will see how the Sedona Sleep System is a much better value and much higher overall quality and way more versitile than the Casper. Both offer free shipping nationwide.
I don't think these people have a clue about latex. From their website they state "It's important to note that all latex foams used in mattresses are not 100% natural when others claim them to be—at most they are about 95% natural due to the curing package required to set the material." So are we to assume that their so called "invented" Adaptive Foam is all natural? Well folks it's anything but that, it's at most 5% and that's only if they are using soy bean or castor oil in place of petrochemical oil. Polyfoam is just that poly aka plastic. Here's the online definition polyfoam - a foam made by adding water to polyurethane plastics. If they invented this then why don't I see a trademark on the term or a patent on the product?
So in the real world here's what they do - contract the entire process out to someone in California who buys the foam from a foam pourer, cuts the foam to the various sizes for mattresses. Sends the foam over to the cut and sew shop down the street for the covers to get put on and then rolled packed in a very small box. Then that company ships it to your door. In effect they just take an order and send it to someone else for fulfillment. What all this means is that they are in fact a retailer, they don't make anything so the prices may seem like a good value in actuality the only savings is they don't have the overhead of the big box stores so they can save you a bit of money.
You can buy Tuft and Needle on Amazon which means they give up 15% to Amazon just for shipping and advertising the product. So if the actual manufacturer is making their profit, Amazon is taking 15%, T&N makes their profit, that really doesn't leave much to actually put into the quality of the product itself. This will all become evident as time rolls on and warranty issues arise.
TN actually tells you their cost on a Queen size bed right on the home page - $300 and then they mark it up another $300 and sell for $600. That's all fine except they don't make anything. They don't Tuft and they don't Needle. They don't own a single sewing machine. So one very imported fact to realize is that the company or companies that make those $300 mattresses also have to make a profit. If using their own formula of a 100% markup then that means the actual cost to make the bed is around $150 on a Queen. Ask yourself what kind of quality and durability do you think you will get out of $150 which is the true cost of the materials used to build their mattress. Let's call them what they are, full on retail. They just spend what would be rent money on TV ads, radio and billboards instead of physical locations but it still comes down to overhead and believe me with their marketing budget that's a lot of overhead which in the end the consumer pays.
So what you get is 7" of high density foam 1.8 lb, ours is 1.9 #31 ILD. Their 3" comfort layer is integrated into the bed (non-removable) and is 2.9 foam. Our latex foam is also 3", removable, exchangeable and comes in a variety of firmness choices averaging 4.3 density. Knowing that the top 3" will take on most of the wear and tear of the mattress it's extremely important to realize the durability difference between 2.9 and 4.3. Let's just say that 10 years from now when the warranty runs out and both mattresses start to show a bit of a dip in the middle. With the T&N you need a new bed. With the Sedona Sleep System you would just need to replace the top 3" of latex and I'm not even saying that would happen but I'm just playing devils advocate here. Latex is known to last much longer than other foams so in the long run and short run ours is a much better return on investment than the T&N not to mention theirs too is a one firmness fits all bed which we've already discussed the drawbacks of those designs.
Once again we have a one size fits all design, a marketing company who contracts out all the work and absolutely NO LATEX in it's design. I haven't been able to find any Certi-Pur-US certifications on their website so not sure what the stink factor on this bed might be since it's all poly and memory foam. It's a 10" mattress with 3 layers of foam. The top layer is supposed to offset the 2" middle layer memory foam heat factor by offering a more air flow but it's only 2" so that's only going to take care of part of that issue. The base is the typical 6" of high density poly foam but they don't give the specs on it either and I seriously doubt it's 1.9 lb like we use in our base foam and ours is Certi-Pur-US. Their price for a King is only $5 less than the Sedona Sleep System we offer and ours has a full 3" of Talalay Latex. You would think their bed would be much cheaper given the severe lack of any latex.
YogaBed™ is a couple of ex Mattress Firm employees who decided to jump into the bed-in-a-box craze a couple years ago. Again it's a one firmness fits all design, NO LATEX, 4 layers of various poly/gel infused foams. Also looks like everything is farmed out to various suppliers and nothing is actually produced by this company which seems to be the main theme with all these companies. By not producing your own mattresses you are very limited as to what you can provide. Here at Sedona Sleep we have our own mattress factory which means we can offer virtually any comfort level for an individual or partners. This is a huge advantage over our competition. YogaBed™ claims that 85% of the population like the same feel which is where they claim their bed takes care of. Our research based both on in store sales and online sales shows that over 50% of couples in fact like different firmnesses and this is why air beds like Sleep Number are so popular. I can't think of any other reason to own one if you and your partner are in agreement as to firmness. With out Split Latex Topper design you can still have a different firmness on the left side vs right side. To our knowledge there is no bed-in-a-box design that does that, again separating us from the rest.
