Casper was one of the first companies to offer memory foam mattresses online and became popular very quickly, but other manufacturers have since introduced similar products that are shipped straight to consumers as well.
Herobed is the newest factory-direct hybrid mattress available, designed to create an incredibly comfortable mattress using a true hybrid construction. By combining body contouring high-quality foams with over 3,000 supportive micro coils, Herobed aims to give you an incredible night’s rest so that you can be your best, every day.
Let’s take a look and see how Herobed stands up to Casper.
Our Casper vs. Herobed Comparison
Mattress by Casper
Casper began offering the flagship bed in a box mattresses in 2014 that combined the comfort of memory foam with the cooling properties of latex. Casper mattresses are one of the most popular online mattresses on the market today. Casper mattresses are built with 9.5 inches of foam, broken down into four layers: open-cell foam, responsive memory foam, adaptive transition foam, and support foam.
Mattress by Herobed
Herobed was developed in 2016 to arm everyday heroes with a great night’s sleep. We wanted to offer a hybrid mattress that could be just as supportive as the people who lay in it, yet provide enough comfort to fully recharge exhausted bodies and minds. So, we combined patented micro coils with the perfect blend of high-density foams for an unprecedented mix of bounciness, contouring comfort, and cooling capacity in an affordable mattress shipped right to your front door.
Herobed’s hybrid mattress is made with 8 inches of high-quality foams and 2.5 inches of micro coils, all split between five layers: high-density poly foam, 891 patented Posturfil pocketed coils, transitional poly foam, over 2,000 comforting micro coils, and cooling gel infused memory foam.

Herobed comes in a box covered in pictures of everyday heroes including a teacher, a mom, and a firefighter. A fun cape and crayons are provided inside the box, encouraging families of any size to spend some quality time together by turning that box into a work of art! The box coincides with the #TagAHero campaign, in which customers are asked to celebrate a hero in their lives who deserve to receive a free mattress.
Which Mattress Will You Choose?
Casper makes a quality mattress that is still one of the most popular in the bed in a box market. But some reviewers don’t think it offers enough pressure relief for side sleepers. All foam mattresses like Casper are also known to have less than desirable edge support when it comes to sitting on the bed and enjoying intimate activities. Herobed’s hybrid mattress offers contouring comfort and pressure relief of memory foam, the support and bounciness of springs, and a cool, breathable sleep surface that will let you wake up ready to accomplish your next mission.
