30-Second Review: The Endy

The Endy is a mattress owned by Sleep Country, the largest chain of retail mattress stores in Canada.

30-Second Review: The Casper Original

The Casper Original mattress was introduced a year before the Endy, in 2014, and, like the Endy, is a single-firmness mattress intended to suit every sleeping preference. Having first launched in the USA, the Casper Original is today selling in countries across Europe and Canada. Thanks to celebrity funding, Casper shot to fame, becoming a leader in the online mattress industry on an international scale.

30-Second Review: The Douglas

The latest of the three mattresses to be introduced was The Douglas, which first appeared online in 2017 and is produced by GoodMorning.com. The Douglas, which is only sold in Canada, was manufactured after years of data and customer analysis. Compared to GoodMorning.com’s other product, The Novosbed, Douglas is more ideally suited for smaller budgets. Its price doesn’t compromise on the quality of construction; this makes it an incredibly great value!

Delivery

Delivery

Buying a mattress online means that a lot more focus is put on delivery. Rather than having to find a way to take the mattress home with you, simply wait for your mattress to be delivered to you. Most bed in a box manufacturers offer free delivery, which most in-store mattress providers would not. The Endy, Casper and Douglas are all delivered quickly and securely to your front door.

With Endy being a Canadian company, Endy mattresses are shipped for free across the country to all locations. If you live in a remote region, you may be required to pay a small shipping fee for your driver to reach you. Orders can take 1-3 business days to be processed, and delivery usually takes up to 1-7 business days.

The Original Casper is shipped to locations around the world, with Canada being one of them. It usually takes between 3 and 5 days for the mattress to be processed after making your purchase. Casper’s box is easy-handle and contains an information slip detailing how to unbox the mattress. It isn’t just Casper’s drop-off delivery that is prompt – the company is well-known for being speedy and organized when collecting unwanted mattresses during sleep trials.

Like the Casper and Endy, customers living all over Canada can buy the Douglas with free shipping (excludes remote locations), and you can’t currently buy the Douglas or Endy outside of the country. It usually takes about a week for your mattress to arrive from the moment you have placed your order.

Unboxing And Setup

Bed in a box mattresses are shipped in vacuum-sealed plastic packaging in a tight rug shape, in a rectangular box. This makes delivery much easier and makes it simpler to carry the mattress into your preferred room before unboxing.

The Endy arrives in a clean white box displaying Endy’s logo. Unboxing the Endy is self-explanatory and straightforward: open the top of the box and tip the mattress onto a flat surface. Unroll it and cut the plastic wrapping, either with a pair of scissors or with Endy’s provided cutting tool. Once the plastic is cut away from the mattress, it will begin to inflate.

Like the Endy, once the Casper is opened, it is relatively easy to remove from the box. Tip the box and ask a friend to pull the mattress out of its packaging slowly. In particular, Casper is protected with multiple plastic layers. It takes slightly longer to unwrap the outer layer of plastic to unroll the mattress and remove the inner layer to stimulate decompression of the material.

Douglas arrives in the least interesting box, design-wise – though unboxing is exactly the same as with the Casper and the Endy. Once you have tipped out the mattress, place it onto the floor or your designated bed frame. Take a second to find the beginning of the plastic layer and peel it back as you unroll the mattress. Then cut the final layer of plastic and pull it away. As soon as this happens, the mattress will decompress. The Douglas, the Endy and the Casper all take less than 3 minutes to reach their full size, though you may want to wait up to 24 hours for the mattresses to fully decompress.

Mattress Construction

Mattress Construction

Cover Material

Cover Material

Endy uses knit polyester fabric for its cover material. This material combines softness with breathability, making it ideal for its role covering the top layer of the mattress.

Casper’s cover is also made from a knit polyester fabric blend, making it soft and stretchy.

Out of the three, Douglas’ cover material has the most interesting design. It showcases a mountain range pattern that nods to Douglas’ Canadian heritage. The cover material is made from sustainable Tencel fibres, which is soft and stretchy like knit polyester fabric.

Top Layer

Endy: Breathable open-air cell foam layer

Endy’s top layer is made from breathable open-air cell Endy Foam, which offers a good combination of sink and support for side and combination sleepers, and minimizes overheating.

Casper: Airscape™ perforated breathable foam layer

Similarly, Casper’s top layer is made from aerated foam, which has slow responsiveness to pressure, allowing the mattress to conform to the sleeper’s shape. Offering adequate pressure relief at the shoulders and the hips, this top layer is aerated, allowing for increased airflow and preventing overheating.

Douglas: Luxury ecoLight cooling gel foam

Douglas’ top layer consists of an ecoLight cooling gel foam. This cooling gel helps to ensure a comfortable and restful sleep by preventing the mattress from trapping heat. The foam is as durable, comfortable and responsive as memory foam but is better for the environment with a lower carbon footprint.

Middle Layer

Endy: Transition polyfoam layer

The middle foam layer of the Endy is made from transition polyfoam. This layer is designed with more firmness and support than the top layer but offers a good transition between the bottom and thickest base layer. While being firm enough to allow the sleeper to sink into the bed, the second layer doesn’t feel responsive enough to make side-sleeping uncomfortable. It works with the comfort layer to ensure that, while soft and cozy, there is still enough bounce to allow sleepers to roll over or get out of bed easily.

Casper: Memory foam zoned support layer

Casper’s middle foam layer is made from memory foam and has unique zoned support that sets it apart from Endy and Douglas. There are three different “zones,” or sections, of the Casper: the shoulder section, the hips section, and the lower legs section. Softer foam is used at the shoulder area, offering greater pressure relieving capabilities. At the same time, the hip zone is slightly firmer, preventing sleepers from feeling as if they are sinking too far into the bed.

Douglas: Premium Elastex foam

Douglas’ Premium Elastex middle layer is similar in style to natural latex foam while being free from many of the chemicals commonly found in latex mattresses. If your allergy symptoms are often aggravated by sleeping on a latex mattress, the Douglas is a superb alternative while having the same supportive and responsive properties. Similarly to Casper’s, Douglas’ middle layer offers the right amount of support without too much sink.

Bottom Layer

Endy: High-density polyfoam base layer

Finishing off the Endy construction is the base layer, made from high-density polyfoam, which gives the bed its durability and shape. This layer is the mattress’s firmest, helping to keep the mattress solid and compact, preventing it from sagging or changing shape after years of use.

Casper: Durable base layer

Casper uses a thick, high-density polyfoam base layer that creates the support system for the mattress. This bottom layer is designed to ensure the mattress maintains its shape and stability when a sleeper rolls over on the mattress, absorbing motion nicely.

Douglas: Motion isolation support foam

The third and final layer of the Douglas Mattress is its motion isolation polyfoam support core. This layer is constructed from a denser polyfoam that acts as a sturdy base. It functions similarly to pocket-coil springs in hybrid and all-spring mattresses, stabilizing the mattress and keeping it durable over years of use.

Firmness And Feel

The Endy has a firmness rating of 6.5, which is typical of a medium-firm mattress. The mattress’s top layer is soft and easily conforms to your shape, but when you lie down, you will feel the firmer transition layer beneath and the bottom layer beneath that. These three layers combined are what give Endy its medium-firm feel.

Casper is a standard medium-firm mattress – though it feels a little more like a 7 because of its slightly elevated hip section. Like a typical mattress of this firmness, the Casper combines support and sink to cradle a sleeper and relieve pressure while preventing a sleeper from feeling swamped by the mattress. Casper is particularly suited to anyone who sleeps on their front or back.

Once more, the Douglas has a 6.6 rating for firmness and feels true to this rating. Though Douglas is also classed as a medium-firm, it has a less supportive feel because of the materials used in its construction. The Douglas is ideal for combination sleepers of average body weight with a soft, pillowy quilted top cover and firmer under layers. Of the three mattresses, Casper’s lifted middle section gives it the firmest feel.

Edge Support

Edge Support

Edge support is essential for any mattress and indicates the quality of construction and, therefore, durability. A mattress with good edge support is much more likely to last years and years without collapsing at the sides or proving to be poorly supportive towards the edge of its lifespan.

Endy’s edge support is nearly as good as you could expect from an all-foam mattress of its kind, although some aspects of the mattress’ construction could be better. Though it feels comfortable lying anywhere on the mattress, there is more of a noticeable sink when you lie near the edge.

On the other hand, Casper is up there with the best all-foam mattresses when it comes to edge support. You can lie anywhere on the mattress and feel completely comfortable, even right at the edge. If you share a bed with a partner, or you like to sleep close to the edge for airflow, you will appreciate Casper’s edge support the most.

Like Casper, Douglas is well-known for having excellent edge support capabilities. With a strong base layer and medium-firm upper layers, the mattress is good at holding its shape and supporting a sleeper no matter where they lie. Sitting on the edge of the Douglas also feels comfortable, and the mattress won’t sink too low in response to your weight.

Motion Isolation

Motion isolation is a term used to describe how effectively a mattress can absorb movement when a sleeper gets into bed, rolls over, or changes positions. Motion isolation is particularly important for people who share a bed, as poor motion isolation – the entire mattress shaking when a sleeper moves – could be disruptive to sleep.

All-foam mattresses tend to be good at absorbing motion, and the Endy is no different. With no springs to cause it to wobble or bounce, the Endy won’t shake when a sleeper rolls over or gets in and out of bed. This makes it an excellent option for couples.

Casper is also a good option for couples, though not quite as good at isolating motion across its surface as the Endy. You are likely to feel a sleeping partner moving in bed, but the movement shouldn’t be enough to wake you up.

The Douglas’ motion isolation qualities are very similar to the Endy’s, making it another good option for bed-sharers. The mattress’ absorption of movement results from its top layer of foam, made with two inches of ecoLight polyfoam. This soft foam layer limits motion transfer, like memory foam. The transitional foam layer beneath the top layer has slightly more bounce to it, which means that you may feel movement if a sleeper sits down heavily on the bed.

Durability

When it comes to durability, Endy lasts for an average of 7 years in peak condition, with a 10-year warranty. With this in mind, you shouldn’t experience any major issues with the mattress’s construction until you have passed the 10-year warranty period. You should rotate the Endy every 3 to 6 months to help prevent major dips in the surface over the years.

Casper, similarly, has a lifespan of between 6 and 8 years. Because of its high-quality materials and solid edge support, you can expect the Casper to remain comfortable and supportive right up until the end of its 10-year warranty.

Douglas also has a durable construction and good edge support that maintains its supportiveness throughout its 7-year lifespan. Douglas has a 15-year warranty, a promising sign from the manufacturer that the mattress should last long without any significant issues.

Temperature

Heat retention is an unfortunate setback of a mattress with an all-foam design. All-foam mattresses are more susceptible to trapping heat because the packed foam doesn’t allow for airflow inside the mattress. But many all-foam mattresses have innovative features that keep them as cool as possible, and Endy is one of them. Using the brand’s own breathable Endy Foam, the mattress is less prone to heat build-up because there is more room for air circulation.

Casper mattresses have a memory foam construction, making them particularly ill-equipped for air circulation. But its layers are made from perforated foam, which helps prevent heat from building up inside the mattress. With that said, you should expect to sleep a little hotter than usual on the Casper than on a hybrid or a spring mattress.

The Douglas has the most interesting approach to temperature neutrality, using a lightweight cooling gel foam, which effectively prevents a build-up of heat on the mattress’ surface. While it still holds onto some heat, you should feel relatively comfortable sleeping on the Douglas, and it is the coolest mattress of the three.

Pressure Relief

A mattress’ pressure relieving-capabilities measure how effectively it distributes pressure across a sleeper’s body, preventing a build-up of pressure in areas like the hips, back and shoulders. The Endy is a good pressure-relieving mattress, moulding to a sleeper’s shape in any sleep position. If you switch positions regularly during sleep, the Endy offers the right balance of support and comfort for you.

Like Endy, Casper offers very good pressure relief. This is mostly down to the mattress’ all-foam design, which prevents too much pressure from being loaded onto the hips and shoulders. Because of its lifted middle section, Casper offers the best pressure relief for people who prefer to sleep on their front or back.

The Douglas’ comfort system also offers good quality pressure relief. With its ecoLight foam, the mattress will cradle a sleeper and prevent too much impact at the most common pressure points. The Elastex foam in the mattress will also prevent unwanted sinking in these pressure points, distributing weight evenly across the surface.

Off-Gassing

All bed in a box mattresses release an odour when unpacked, known as off-gassing. Off-gassing is the release of VOCs, which have a slightly rubbery smell that some find unpleasant. This smell dissipates quickly and only lasts for a day or two in most mattresses.

Endy and Douglas have a noticeable off-gassing odour that usually dissipates after two days. Casper also has a mild off-gassing smell that dissipates after several days.

Price

Endy comes in a range of sizes, and each size’s prices are pretty average for an online all-foam mattress brand. The smallest mattress, the twin, costs $675, while the largest, the California King, costs $950. Most people opt for a Queen, which costs $850. Like most bed in a box brands, Endy offers the California King and the King at the same price, which is a deal you may want to take advantage of if you’re looking for the biggest mattress available at a bargain price.

The Casper mattress is one of the most expensive mattresses in the bed in a box market, which Casper can justify by their international popularity. The smallest twin costs $895, and the California King costs $1695. Again, Casper offers the California King and the King at the same price. The most popular option is the Queen, which costs $1395.

The Douglas mattress is the best valued mattress of the three, with the smallest twin costing $599 and the California King costing $849. The Queen tends to be what most people go for and costs $749. Though the Douglas is cheaper than the Endy and significantly cheaper than the Casper, its materials and construction are still of the highest quality.

Warranty And Returns

Buying a mattress with a good warranty is even more important when making an online purchase. Sleep trials – an opportunity to test out a mattress and receive a refund if you don’t like it – are also important for a bed in a box mattress, as you won’t be able to try the mattress out in-store as you can with store-bought mattresses.

The Endy has a 100-night sleep trial, which is standard and expected for a bed in a box-type mattress. During this trial, you can test the mattress and decide whether it is for you. With 100 nights to test, you have plenty of time to get used to the mattress before making a decision. The Endy comes with a 10-year warranty.

To read the full warranty, please visit the Endy warranty page.

Casper also has a 100-night sleep trial, which eliminates the risk of buying the mattress and discovering that it isn’t for you. If you don’t like the mattress, or you think you need a firmer or a softer alternative, you should be able to return it within the sleep trial period for your money back. Casper recommends that you give yourself enough time to adjust to your new mattress, especially if you have never slept on an all-foam mattress before. Like the Endy, Casper has a 10-year warranty.

To read the full warranty, please visit the Casper warranty page.

The Douglas has the longest warranty of the three mattresses: a total of 15 years. It also has a slightly longer sleep trial than the Casper and the Endy, too, offering 120 nights to adjust to the mattress, including 30 mandatory sleeping nights before you can return it for a refund. Though those extra 20 nights may seem like a selling point, it is unlikely that they are really necessary as you most likely will have made up your mind by then.

FAQs Of Endy Vs Casper Vs Douglas:

Q: Does Endy, Douglas or Casper offer any other mattresses?

Yes – Casper offers a variety of mattresses aside from the Casper Original, including the Casper Original Hybrid, the Wave Hybrid, and the Nova Hybrid. The Douglas is manufactured by GoodMorning.com, which also offers the Novosbed, Logan & Cove, Brunswick and many other mattresses. Endy is the only mattress brand that doesn’t provide a different option.

Q: How do I know if an all-foam mattress is for me?

If you have never slept on an all-foam mattress before, you might worry that they are too soft for what you are used to. But this is rarely the case, and you should generally find that all-foam mattresses like the Casper, the Douglas and the Endy are firm enough to support you in any sleeping position.

Most people are attracted to all-foam mattresses because they offer that extra bit of support and pressure relief, which spring mattresses, because of their construction, are unable to provide.

In Summary

Looking at the Endy vs Casper vs Douglas in Canada side-by-side, a few obvious conclusions can be made about all three mattresses.

If you are looking for a slightly less expensive Canadian medium firm memory foam mattress, Endy is a great choice. The mattress’ memory foam and polyfoam construction makes it an ideal choice for combo sleepers, offering plenty of support for changing positions. It is also great at offering pressure relief, though its edge support could be slightly better.

Casper is spectacular in terms of support and comfort. It has the added bonus of its exceptional edge support and unique lifted hip section, offering additional support for front and back sleepers. Casper’s popularity and long-term reliability may give the mattress the edge for you, as you may feel more comfortable purchasing from a brand that has been around for the longest time in the industry.

Douglas is also excellent in support and comfort and offers the cheapest prices of the three. The cooling gel foam layer keeps you cool at night, while the Elastex foam provides incredible responsiveness and pressure relief. The final motion isolation layer keeps any body movement isolated and supported throughout the night. The Canadian brand is also incredibly eco-conscious with its use of high-quality, lower carbon input materials. Don’t forget it also has a longer sleep trial and warranty.

It is hard to pick a clear winner out of the Casper, the Endy and the Douglas – the winner in your eyes will most likely be down to personal preference and budget. Douglas and Endy are both Canadian brands, but Casper has a much larger global reputation for its mattress offering.
