If you aren’t set on a memory foam mattress, then the Tuft & Needle Original is a Canadian made mattress with a good track record. With their custom Adaptive foam, it provides support and pressure relief without the sinking feeling that can come with deep memory foam.

This Tuft & Needle online mattress in Canada is infused with graphite and cooling gel. The graphite absorbs heat and conducts heat away from you and through the bed, while the ceramic gel beads create additional support and help wick away heat.

Even with a generous 100-night trial period, over 95% of Tuft & Needle Original customers decide to keep their mattress. It could be the proprietary adaptive foam, or the open-cell foam with graphite and cooling gel that pulls your body heat away.

The Tuft and Needle Original is 10 inches tall with a medium-firm feel, and is comfortable for all sleeping positions.

Tuft and Needle Original Mattress Certifications

Multiple certifications cover every aspect of Tuft and Needle’s manufacturing process, ensuring that your mattress has been built with the health of you and the environment in mind.

The entire T&N Original received UL Greenguard Gold certification which means it passed the strictest chemical emissions standards tested for by UL Environment.

CertiPUR-US certification means that the foam in the mattress is really low in volatile organic compounds emissions, and it’s free from harmful chemicals like ozone depleters, PBDEs and carcinogens.

The Original mattress has also been rewarded Intertek’s Clean Air certification, which tests and certifies products for indoor air quality compliance to LEED EQ low-emitting materials credit.

The Original mattress is free of any harmful chemicals, and the air quality around the mattress is free from dangerous levels of VOCs.

Who is the T&N Original mattress for?

Because the Original is listed as a medium-firm mattress, Tuft & Needle says that it is ideal for sleepers of any size and weight. Without a super plush memory foam top layer, sleepers who weigh more won’t sink in too far and won’t feel suffocated like they might in a softer mattress.

Wirecutter doesn’t thing it will be durable for people who weigh more than 200 pounds, but they also add that likely all of the medium-firm mattresses under $1000 would fare about the same.

Tuft & Needle Original Mattress Reviews

Wirecutter ranked it as the #6 on their list claiming it was the 'Best Regular Foam Matterss' in their product review. [January 2021]
It isn't memory foam, so it doesn't hug every contour. We think it's a decent bed for the price.
