If you’ve been looking for a cooler, more comfortable mattress, you’re not alone. Many consumers are in search of a bed that lets them sleep comfortably without waking up in a puddle of sweat. To help you find the right mattress, we’ve compared two beds that use different cooling technologies to keep consumers comfortable.

Our GhostBed vs. Herobed Comparison

Mattress by GhostBed

GhostBed began being manufactured by Nature’s Sleep in 2015. Werner’s goal with GhostBed was to create a mattress that would alleviate back and neck pain by providing pressure relief and support at an affordable price.

The GhostBed mattress is a memory foam bed offering the “world’s most advanced complete adaptive cooling sleep experience that’s designed for your individual needs.” The GhostBed mattress is 11 inches, divided into three layers of high-density, cooling gel, and latex foam.


Mattress by Herobed

Herobed was developed in 2016 by Mark and Jeff Quinn, who have worked in the mattress industry for over 35 years. Their goal was to define the hybrid category by creating the best hybrid mattress on the market through a combination of memory foam and over 3,000 micro coils – and that’s what we did.  

The Herobed mattress is 10.5 inches, built with memory foam as well but also has two layers of 3,000+ micro coils, making it a hybrid mattress that provides constant air flow. Both beds use CertiPUR-US certified foams and are rated well by reviewers. Herobed mattress reviews have found that the combination of micro coils and memory foam provide support, pressure relief, and a cool sleep surface.

Having two layers of coils helps air circulate better than an all foam mattress.

Herobed Review

The GhostBed just feels more substantial and doesn’t bottom out like a cheaper mattress can.

GhostBed ReviewSleep Sherpa

The hybrid mattress is excellent at providing pressure relief and doesn’t make the sleeper hot.

Inside, customers find crayons to color the characters and a child’s red cape for superhero play. The characters and the cape are part of Herobed’s mission to reward everyday heroes with great sleep. On Herobed’s website, customers can nominate a hero in their life for a chance at a free mattress, simply by posting a video with #TagAHero.
