Ratings Comparison

If you’re trying to decide between the Winkbed and the Saatva mattress for your best night’s sleep, it is important to see how they measure up in a few key areas.

Sleeping Cool

Most people prefer a bed that disperses heat in an even manner. Memory foam has a habit of allowing the heat to envelop your body while gel foam moves the heat away from the body. Winkbed’s choice of gel foam allows their mattresses to give a cooler sleep.

A Closer Look at the Winkbeds

To get a full understanding of how a Winkbed will give you your best night's sleep, we need to take a close look at this mattress.

Winkbeds insides

Materials

The Winkbeds’ materials are made of 6 layers to give you your maximum comfort at night. The first two layers are foam with the uppermost being an inch thick soft foam made to contour your curves as you sleep. This is followed by a 1-inch thick stabilizing gel foam layer that helps to keep you cool and isolate motion.

The foam layers are followed by a layer of 2.4-inch pocketed micro air springs. They provide contoring support and optimize airflow. Underneath this layer is a compressed cotton lumbar support pad that is .75 inches thick to provide additional support.

At the bottom of the bed are two layers, one is 8-inches of pocketed steel coils and the last is a 2-inch thick foam layer at the base designed to protect the structure of the bed. Additionally, the bed includes a rail system around its perimeter designed to give the mattress stable edge support.

Feel and Firmness

The cushiony micro coils and airy bounce of the top layers combined with the supportive layers allow the sleeper to have a comfortable but supportive sleep.

The hybrid mattress comes with a Tencel cover and a top layer made of gel infused memory foam. What you’ll notice the first time you lie on this bed is that it has a light and airy bounce that contours to your body making it feel like you’re laying on air.

The Winkbeds mattress ranks towards the top of the mid-level firmness scale. The combination of the soft foam and gel foam layers combined with the support of the innerspring support layers gives you a comfortable but supportive sleep.

Sleeping Positions

If you are a combination sleeper, back sleeper, or side sleeper the Winkbeds mattress is the perfect bed for you. The bed offers the support needed for these sleeping positions combined with the necessary comfort materials to reduce pressure points. Stomach sleepers will find that this mattress doesn’t give enough hip support.

Heavier Sleepers

While the regular Winkbed provides a good enough sleep for heavier sleepers, some sleepers may prefer to upgrade to the Winkbed Plus or Winkbed Luxury Firm. While the regular Winkbed provides support for back sleepers, side and stomach sleepers will likely feel some pressure on their shoulders and hips.

Warranty

The warranty for a Winkbed mattress is non-transferable, meaning that it only extends to the original owner. Visible indentations, sags, splits, and cracks in either the foam or spring material are covered as long as the mattress was supported properly and not misused in any way.

Pros and Cons

To fully understand if the Winkbed is for you, we should see where it excels and where it does not.

Pros:

Sleeps cool

Has a supportive bed

Long lasting construction

Lifetime warranty

120 day trial

Cons:

Not good for stomach sleepers

Not a sinkable sleep

A Closer Look at the Saatva

Choosing a mattress is a big decision, so you’ll want to take an indepth look at the Saatva mattress before deciding.

Saatva Mattress

Materials

The Saatva mattress comes covered in an antimicrobial organic cotton cover that cannot be removed for washing. The upper most layer is a euro pillow top to give you additional cushion and comfort for your sleep.

Underneath the pillow top is a thin layer of memory foam that offers support to not only the lumbar area but also provides comfort by relieving pressure from the shoulders and hips. This thin layer of memory foam covers a layer of individually wrapped micro coils that help with contouring and support.

At the base of the Saatva bed is a layer of steel coils that help to provide extra bounce and lift to the mattress. The steel coils also work well to prevent sagging over time. Surrounding the mattress is a foam encasement that helps to provide excellent edge support.

Feel and Firmness

What you’ll notice the first time you lie down on this bed is that it has a traditional innerspring feel. You will also notice that the micro coils and memory foam will contour your body in just the right places.

The Saatva is on the higher end of medium firm. You will also notice a fair amount of motion transfer with the Saatva mattress. If you are a light sleeper that has a sleeping partner that moves around a lot, this coil on coil bed may not be right for you.

Sleeping Positions

While this mattress does provide an adequate amount of amount of pressure relief on all sleeping positions, it still leaves some pressure on the shoulders and hips when in a side sleeping position. The Saatva mattress is a best fit for stomach and back sleepers as these positions are supported best by the design of the mattress.

Heavier Sleepers

The Saatva mattress offers support for heavier sleepers on all positions; however, for many they felt that they sank into the mattress more than they would like. While the Saatva provides pressure relief for most sleeping positions, stomach sleepers would be better served by one of Saatva’s firmer options.

Warranty

The Saatva mattress comes with a 15 year warranty. During the first two years of ownership, if there are any defects in either the workmanship or materials of the mattress, Saatva will replace the mattress at no cost; however, in years three to 15 there will be a $99 transportation cost for each way to repair and recover the mattress.

Saatva also offers a Fairness Replacement Option. Under this option, owners have the ability to receive a brand new mattress at any point in the 15 year warranty period.

The Fairness Replacement Option allows owners to keep the original defective mattress and also receive a new mattress at a discount of up to 60 percent plus a $99 transportation charge. The Fairness Replacement Option can only be used once.

Pros and Cons

A Saatva Cloud Luxe may be the mattress for you but that depends upon your needs so let’s look at where they excel and where the mattress sinks.

Pros:

Good for stomach and back sleepers

120 night trial period

Value priced

Fairness replacement option

Cons:

Bad for side sleepers

Lackluster motion isolation

15 year warranty with fees

Not good for sleepers of a heavier stature
