5 Best Cooling Mattresses (2024): Hybrid, Soft, Foam, and for Couples

There are a ton of mattresses on the market that claim to have cooling benefits. Here are a few others I’ve tested and liked, but not as much as the options above.

Casper Snow Hybrid for $1,745: When you come across a mattress with a name that includes “snow,” your expectations for cooling effects are naturally high—and this mattress indeed lives up to that expectation. With a medium feel, the Casper Snow Hybrid incorporates a cooling material alongside three patented HeatDelete bands, engineered to “act as thermal highways and effectively dissipate heat,” according to Casper. The patented Snow Cover is cool, and I consistently woke up sweat-free when testing this bed. Structurally, this hybrid bed combines poly foam, memory foam, and pocketed coils, and provides targeted support at the hips, waist, and lower back to alleviate pressure, making it ideal for back and stomach sleepers. Keep in mind that upon unboxing, this mattress may need some time to chill (pun intended). I noticed it came out of the box slightly misshapen from its packaging and emitted a faint plasticky scent. After about two days, the mattress was ready to go, the smell gone, and settled into its intended neat rectangle shape.

Saatva Memory Foam Hybrid for $1,595: The Saatva Memory Foam Hybrid is marketed as firm, and that’s exactly what you should expect. Crafted with patented AirCradle memory foam, the mattress features concentrated cushioning in the center, strategically intended to support your lower back. Since I’m only 5’2″, the middle-back cushioning didn’t hit where it intended to. Despite its firmness, I didn’t find this mattress particularly exceptional, especially with its cooling properties. Despite incorporating a triple-phase LuxeCool system and cooling gel-infused memory foam, the cooling effect didn’t stand out.

BedJet 3 for $429: I haven’t tested the BedJet myself yet, but WIRED reviewer Christopher Null did and liked it a lot (8/10, WIRED Recommends). This device uses a large blower under your bed to blast hot or cool air beneath your covers. If you like your existing mattress but find yourself sleeping hot, this could be just the ticket.
