Purple is one of Casper’s main competitors in the industry. Like Casper, they’re extremely popular with online mattress shoppers. But the Purple mattress is made from very different materials which have different benefits for sleepers.
Different feel from the Purple’s grid design – The Purple mattress features a two-inch top layer of hyper-elastic polymer. It provides plenty of support and airflow for temperature regulation. But it can have a ‘water bed’ feel to it that some customers don’t enjoy.
Better airflow for cooler sleep – People who sleep hot may prefer the Purple mattress over the Casper. Its comfort grid contains thousands of open air channels that encourage airflow to keep the bed cooler at night. But the Casper Hybrid has similar airflow to the Purple mattress because of its pocketed coil spring layer.
Firm support for heavy people – The Purple mattress is a better choice for heavy weight sleepers. It’s more supportive with a firmer feel that heavier people benefit from.
Similar price and policies – Both the Purple and Casper mattress have a 100 night trial period and 10-year warranty. They’re also both priced around or below $1,000, making them affordable for most shoppers.
