Casper is an extremely successful North American company known for making quality bed-in-a-box mattresses. These options are the best of the best, and all use some form of proprietary foam or support layer to provide a unique sleep surface. If you’re looking to try something new, you can’t go wrong with Casper. While Casper isn’t strictly a Canadian company, it offers a host of features that Canadians may find valuable in a mattress. In our Casper Wave Hybrid mattress review, we’ll look at all the features that make this mattress unique.

Should You Buy the Casper Wave Hybrid Mattress?

The Casper Wave Hybrid is a luxury mattress with a complex, multi-layered comfort system that can make you feel like you’re sleeping on a cloud. This mattress provides great pressure relief, temperature control, and motion isolation. If those are things you value in a mattress, it’s worth checking this option out. If you aren’t sure if it’s the right choice for you, you can take advantage of the 100-night sleep trial before you commit to a purchase.

In the rest of our Casper Wave Hybrid mattress review, we’ll explore the following features.

  • Two layers of perforated memory foam for pressure relief and temperature control
  • Two layers of zoned foam for better support for your back and hips
  • Gel pods embedded in the second zoned foam layer provide strong support in the places you need it most
  • The supportive pocket coil layer keeps you properly aligned throughout the night
  • Edge support perimeter reduces sliding at the edges of the mattress, perfect for those who sit or sleep near the edge
  • Recycled cover made from over 100 recycled plastic bottles for an eco-conscious touch

It's Great For:


The Casper Wave Hybrid is the pocket coil version of one of Casper’s most popular mattresses. This option features four layers of comfort foam. These layers are perforated, zoned, or both. This means you’ll get the best support and temperature control possible, especially when you consider Casper’s proprietary materials. You won’t find this mattress anywhere else. Casper uses some of the best technology in the sleep industry for this mattress.

Inside the 100% recycled cover, you’ll find four layers of foam. The first three are perforated to allow extra airflow to pass through the mattress. At the top of the mattress is a cooling gel layer, which helps wick away moisture and heat throughout the night. If you sleep hot, this is a great system for you. The two foam layers near the middle of the mattress are zoned, meaning they provide the strongest support under your back and hips. This is the area where most sleepers need a lot of support. 

The transition foam layer even uses gel pods to create additional support. These firm pods create a comfort barrier, bracketing your hips and providing exceptional alignment for all sleeping positions. Side sleepers will find this most comfortable, however. Finally, a layer of pocket coils and perimeter support foam keeps you balanced and well-supported no matter where you sleep on the mattress. 

Together, these layers create a feeling that you won’t find elsewhere. This mattress uses all of the tools at its disposal to create a unique and memorable sleep experience that you won’t want to give up.

Casper Wave Hybrid Mattress Construction

The Casper Wave Hybrid makes use of some previously unexplored technologies to provide better support and cooling features. 

  • Recycled Cover. The cover of the Casper Wave Hybrid mattress is eco-conscious. The soft, knit fabric is created from over 121 recycled bottles.
  • Cooling Gel Layer. A thin layer of cooling gel rests on top of this mattress, providing a way to wick away heat and moisture so you stay cool throughout the night.
  • AirScape Foam. A top layer of AirScape foam allows for greater breathability throughout the mattress. This foam helps reduce pressure points and provides hundreds of tiny perforations to reduce heat throughout.
  • Thicker AirScape Foam. A thicker layer of AirScape perforated foam keeps you at a comfortable temperature, taking warm air away and letting cool air circulate up through the mattress. 
  • Zoned AirScape Foam. This zoned AirScape perforated foam layer uses three areas to help align your body and keep you comfortable all night long. This layer uses firmer foam throughout the centre of the mattress for your back and hips, while softer foam around your shoulders reduces pressure and discomfort.
  • Zoned Support Max with Gel Pods. A unique layer of Casper’s Zoned Support foam acts as a transition layer. Here, you’ll find zoned support foam in several support zones, created to ergonomically reduce pressure and align your spine. The gel pods under your hips and lumbar provide firm additional support. 
  • Pocket Spring Support Layer. Supportive pocket coils create better support and balance throughout the mattress. These coils align your body and add increased durability so you can sleep comfortably for years to come. 
  • Edge Support Perimeter Foam. A layer of thick support foam creates a perimeter. This surrounding layer helps bolster the edges of the mattress to prevent sinking and sagging as you sit on the edge of the bed. 


The Casper Wave Hybrid is about a 6 on our firmness scale. Though it’s rated as a medium-firm mattress, it’s on the softer side of the medium-firm spectrum. This means that you can expect strong support from the support layers, but the top of the mattress is still plush enough to relieve pressure for most sleepers. 

Because of its medium-firm feel, this mattress is ideal for side sleepers. It’s also great for lighter back sleepers and some stomach sleepers, though it is a little too plush for those who prefer a firmer mattress. 

Motion Isolation

Despite the hybrid nature of the Casper Wave Hybrid mattress, it isolates motion just as well as a memory foam mattress might. The comfort system provides multiple layers of foam, and each reduces the motion that can travel across the mattress. The pocket coils further reduce motion, meaning you’ll feel very little from the other side of the mattress. 

If you’re tired of waking up when your partner tosses and turns at night, this mattress can reduce how much you feel from the other side of the bed. Even when they are awake, you don’t have to be. 

Pressure Relief

Casper Wave Hybrid Pressure Relief

The Casper Wave Hybrid is all about comfort. Each layer of their patented comfort system works to reduce pressure and balance your body. The four layers of foam above the coils provide softer foam around your shoulders, with firmer support around your hips and lower back. You’ll get support where it’s needed, but the mattress also provides exceptional pressure relief. If you often wake up due to discomfort where your body touches the mattress, this might be a better bed for you. 

The plush surface of this mattress helps most sleepers seek relief from pressure points, but it may not be right for those who prefer a firmer mattress

Temperature Control

Do you often wake up drenched in sweat in the middle of the night? If night sweats and overheating are a problem for you, you aren’t alone. Most Canadians have issues regulating temperature throughout the night, but your mattress might be the primary culprit. Choosing a mattress with better cooling features (as well as cooling sheets and cooling pillows) may be able to help you sleep better.

The Casper Wave Hybrid features three layers of perforated foam, topped with a layer of cooling gel foam. The result is a mattress that moves heat away from you as you sleep, replacing the heat that can build up under you as you sleep. The cooling features help wick away moisture, too, so you’re less likely to wake up sweaty. 

These layers help create a breathable mattress that naturally removes heat from the equation. This mattress does a great job of keeping the temperature down for most Canadians, especially because of the pocket coil support layer. 

Edge Support

If you sit or sleep near the edge of the bed, you may notice that some mattresses lack edge support. This means that you won’t be as well-supported as you approach the edge of the mattress. If you sit at the edge of the mattress, it might sink or slide beneath you, creating uncomfortable instability. 

Thankfully, the Casper Wave Hybrid tries to remedy this. A layer of support foam wraps around the coil layer, forming a strong perimeter of support for the edges of the mattress. You’ll still sink a little at the edges, as the layers of comforting foam have to compress a little before you reach the support of this foam perimeter. Still, it’s more comfortable than the sliding feeling on many other mattresses.

Ease of Movement

Casper Wave Hybrid Ease of Movement

Because the many layers of foam in the Casper Wave Hybrid mattress contour to your body to relieve pressure, it may be more difficult to move around on the surface of the mattress. Some memory foam mattresses feel like ‘quicksand’, which can quickly make you feel as though you are too deep in the mattress to move around comfortably. This mattress remedies some of that with the bounce from the hybrid layer. The support layers can help reduce the memory foam ‘hug’ at points where they are firmer, but it’s still a little difficult to move around on this mattress. 

Heavier Canadians will have the most trouble with this, but combination sleepers may also find it uncomfortable. 


The Casper Wave Hybrid is one of Casper’s most expensive mattresses. This luxury model provides exceptional support and cooling, with a construction you won’t find outside of Casper’s offerings. The extremely unique materials and construction help create a mattress that can’t be matched. You can purchase the Capser Wave Hybrid in five standard mattress sizes, though it is not available in a standard Twin size.

Most Canadians will have free shipping on Casper mattresses. Territories like Yukon, the Northwest, and Nunavut require a nominal shipping fee through UPS. Most locations in Northern Canada must pay for shipping as well. If you are unsure about shipping fees that may be associated with your location, you can always contact Casper’s customer service team to discuss your exact address. 

If you don’t want to set your mattress up yourself, you can order Casper’s in-home delivery and installation service. For $249, an expert will set your mattress up and remove your old mattress. 

While standard orders should arrive within 3 to 9 business days after shipping. If you order in-home delivery and installation, it can take up to 2 weeks to arrange for installation. You will need to be home for your delivery if you order an in-home setup. 

Sleep Trial and Returns

Like all Casper’s mattresses and sleep accessories, the Casper Wave Hybrid has a 100-night sleep trial. You’ll have the first 100 nights (just over three months!) after your purchase arrives to determine if it’s the right option for you. Since it takes 30 days for your body to adjust to a new bed, Casper requires that you wait at least 30 nights before making your decision. 

If you decide that you don’t like the mattress, you’ll get a full refund of your purchase price. After these first 30 nights, you can initiate a return on Casper’s website. They will schedule a pick-up that works for you, and that mattress will be donated if possible. In order to be eligible for a return, your mattress must be like new, in sanitary condition, and without any stains. 

Once Casper’s chosen courier picks your mattress up, they will issue a refund. It can take up to a week to process the refund, as well as an additional period of 3 to 10 days for your return to arrive at your original payment method.


The Casper Wave Hybrid is covered by Casper’s 10-year limited warranty. Any defects in materials, workmanship, or manufacturing are covered by this warranty. Defects covered by this warranty include deep body indents that occur during normal use, physical defects that cause the foam to split or crack, and problems with the zipper assembly on the cover (if applicable). 

Casper’s warranty terms cover these defects, but not comfort preferences, normal softening or discolouration over time, or damage caused by improper use. If the damage you observe on your mattress falls under warranty, you can begin a claim at Casper’s website. 

You may be asked to provide your proof of purchase, the original date of your order, and picture evidence of the defect you are claiming. If your claim is accepted, Casper may choose to repair or replace your mattress at their discretion. 

If you have a valid warranty claim, you can also request an upgrade for your mattress. You can choose a more expensive mattress and pay the difference between the two. In this case, a new warranty term will begin. If your old mattress is replaced with a comparable model or repaired, your warranty term will remain the same without renewal.

Final Thoughts

The Casper Wave Hybrid can be a great choice for Canadians who suffer from discomfort due to improper alignment. Side sleepers and some stomach sleepers will find the strong zoned support more comfortable than all-foam mattresses, especially due to the pocket coil layer. The plush surface offers excellent pressure relief, especially if you sleep in the same position all night long. It’s a great mattress for most Canadians, particularly those who need additional temperature control.

Frequently Asked Questions

Of course, Casper is an American company that specializes in bed in a box mattresses. Regardless, they manufacture all of the mattresses they sell in Canada domestically in dedicated Canadian facilities. There are even some Casper models that are only offered in Canada!

No, the cover on the Casper Wave Hybrid cannot be removed for washing. You can spot-clean the mattress cover if needed, but we recommend using a mattress protector to keep your mattress clean.

You should rotate your Casper mattress every 3 to 6 months. Make sure to rotate 180 degrees to reduce body indentations, especially if you and your partner have a larger weight difference.
