Innerspring Mattress Face-Off: Avocado Green vs. Casper The Casper Hybrid Consumer Reports

Avocado and Casper make very high-performing hybrid innerspring mattresses, according to our exhaustive mattress tests.

“It’s clear that Avocado and Casper both know how to make mattresses for a wide variety of body types and sleep styles,” says Chris Regan, the project leader at CR who oversees our mattress testing.

So let's get into it.

The Avocado Green and Casper Original Hybrid mattresses are CR-recommended models. The Avocado offers a one-year sleep trial, so you can return it for a full refund if you end up not liking it; Casper offers a 100-night sleep trial. Both companies offer straight-to-your-door delivery, and the mattresses sell for right around the same price, give or take a few hundred bucks. (At CR we buy and test queen-size mattresses because that’s the most widely sold size.)

Which one are you more likely to be happy with? Here’s a close look at how they match up in each of our extensive mattress tests.


Avocado: This mattress weighs 97 pounds and has a cover made of Global Organic Textile Standard-certified organic cotton and wool. (You can read about organic labels on mattresses in our report “Organic Mattress Labels You Can Trust.”) It also has two layers of latex padding on top of a bed of pocket coils. This mattress is fairly firm, earning a 7 out of 10 on our firmness scale, with 10 being the firmest. Our testers measured this mattress to be 79 inches long by 59 inches wide by 12 inches tall.

Casper: Casper is known for its foam mattresses of the same name, but this is the company’s hybrid innerspring model. It’s made of several layers, including one of breathable open-cell foam—what Casper calls a “zoned support layer”—and a layer of high-density memory foam that pads a bed of pocket coils. This Casper is on the soft side, earning a 3 in our firmness test. Our testers measured this mattress to be 79 inches long by 60 inches wide by 11 inches tall.
