Best Shark Vacuums (2021): Reviews and Recommendations

Homemakers love Shark vacuums for the powerful and easy-to-use devices that they are. But, are they overhyped? Or are they actually good vacuum cleaners that offer the best value? 

Well, Shark vacuums are the right mix of affordability and quality, and they are multifunctional to use on different surfaces as well. But with all the options out there, it can be confusing to find the right vacuum cleaner for your use. That’s where we come in. After going through hundreds of vacuum reviews on Amazon and understanding what each model does the best, we have compiled a list of the best Shark vacuums.

Whether you need to clean your hardwood floors or the high-pile carpet you haven’t cleaned ever since you moved in, the list below will help you channel your inner Monica the best.

8 Best Shark Vacuums

1. Shark APEX Duoclean Upright Vacuum Cleaner

If you want a vacuum that not only cleans your floors but also cleans itself, we recommend the Shark Apex Upright Vacuum cleaner! It comes in a stunning design along with powerful technology that makes cleaning easy and fun. 

Armed with the Powered Lift-Away technology, this vacuum has a detachable canister so the brush can reach even the toughest spots. And if you have a furry friend at home, this vacuum does an excellent job of pulling all the tangled hair from the carpet as well. The Zero-M technology offers a self-cleaning feature while the seal technology keeps dirt inside the canister without getting clogged. 

Plus, it comes with a HEPA filter that provides advanced anti-allergen cleaning. The DuoClean dual brushrolls further make it easy to deep clean your hardwood floors, or carpets. Also, the floor nozzle and handle have integrated LED lights for visibility in dark corners and under the sofa.

2. Shark Rocket Corded Ultra-Light Vacuum

Even though the Shark Rocket vacuum comes in an ultra-light and compact design, this model offers great value. This vacuum is corded, but you can easily use it as a cordless vacuum cleaner for your car seat or the sofa. 

Equipped with an extra-large dust cup, this vacuum can deep clean your area rug and your hardwood floors with just a few buttons. And yes, switching from bare floors to carpet is easy too, you don’t have to stop and change the settings manually. Just push a button and you can enjoy a smooth floor-to-carpet transition. 

The motorized brush with Zero-M technology does an excellent job of picking up hair from the carpets. Also, it is self-cleaning and removes hair wrap from the brushrolls so you don’t have to do it yourself. And with an advanced swivel steering feature, going from one difficult corner to the next will be easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy!

3. Shark IONFlex DuoClean Ultra-Light Cordless Stick Vacuu3.m

The Shark IONFlex cordless vacuum is a great 2-in-1 that can quickly transform into a handheld vacuum. Even though it sounds good on paper, the convenience of a 2-in-1 vacuum falls short given it weighs 7.7 pounds. This means your hands will get tired from cleaning in minutes, long before the battery runs out. 

With a 26 minutes runtime and two rechargeable batteries, the Shark Ion Flex offers a hassle-free cleanup. You can charge the other battery while you’re using the vacuum and swap the battery if your cleaning hasn’t finished. Even though it doesn’t make it to the list of the best handheld vacuums*, it does let you break free from the wall. 

This vacuum boasts of the Shark DuoClean technology that features a combination of a bristle brush and soft roller — which makes it suitable to use on both area rugs as well as bare floors. 


  • Hassle-free runtime 
  • 2X ION Power Pack System
  • Anti-Allergen Complete Seal technology
  • MultiFLEX Technology for easy storage 
  • Pre-Motor Foam & Felt Filters
  • 26 minutes of battery life 
  • Comes with two removable, rechargeable batteries
  • Shark DuoClean Technology to clean fine dust and large debris


  • Slightly heavy when used as a handheld vacuum 

*For handheld vacuums, we think Dyson has a better list of options. Check out what we mean in this review of the best Dyson handheld vacuums.

4. Shark IQ Robot Self-Empty Robotic Vacuum

If you want a clean house but don’t want to do the cleaning yourself, the Shark IQ Robot Vacuum is your best bet. Along with cleaning your house for an entire month, it also empties itself into the bagless base.  

The Shark IQ has a powerful suction that can pick up fine dust as well as larger debris, and roll pet hair from the carpet without a hair wrap! It maps the house and you can control which rooms to clean, or schedule whole house clean up through the Shark app. Since it’s a smart device, it also works with voice control through Alexa or Google Assistant. 

Plus, the Shark Robot vacuum comes with BotBoundary strips to restrict access to certain rooms and set up a boundary in your house. It maps the house and cleans row by row, and when its battery life is used up, it returns to the dock, recharges, and resumes where it left off. 


  • Wi-Fi Connected
  • Self-Cleaning Brushroll
  • Comes with BotBoundary strips 
  • Powerful suction for deep cleaning 
  • Automatically cleans the house periodically 
  • The bagless base can hold dirt up to 30 days
  • Self-cleaning brushroll removes hair without hair wrap
  • Voice control through Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant 


  • Extremely loud while cleaning 

5. Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away TruePet Upright Vacuum

Ideal for vacuuming pet hair, this model from Shark is a top pick among pet parents. It comes with a 12″ crevice tool, pet multi-tool, and power brush to tackle all the tangled pet hair, even in thick carpets. This means you can finally let your dog or cat roll around in the area rug without worrying.

Apart from tools, this vacuum cleaner boasts of a switch that makes it easier to transition from carpet and bare floors without changing out the brushes. Also, the detachable canister as well as LED lights on the hose ensure that there is no debris left over even in hard-to-reach places. 

Further, the Shark Rotator Professional Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology and a HEPA filter to trap all the dust and debris inside. 


  • Cord length: 25 feet 
  • Washable filters
  • 5-year warranty (limited)
  • Detachable pod for hard-to-reach areas
  • LED lights to spot hidden debris
  • Power Brush with a Bordeaux finish
  • Can easily switch from hardwood floor to carpet mode 
  • Comes with an extra crevice tool, power brush, pet multi-tool
  • Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology and HEPA filter 


  • Heavy, so limited maneuverability 

6. Shark Navigator DLX Upright Deluxe Vacuum

The Navigator DLX is one of the affordable Shark vacuum cleaners that does not compromise functionality. Its swivel steering offers superior control for maneuvering while the extra-long hose can reach the ceiling easily. 

Plus, it comes with extra tools — a crevice tool to reach difficult spaces and an upholstery tool to clean your sofas with ease. Also, the dust cup is three times the size of the original Navigator. This canister vacuum has a 25 feet cord so you don’t have to be stuck to the wall. 

However, this vac is very noisy when in use, which could be a deal-breaker for some people. But given the features at a lower price tag, we think this is the right pick for people with a limited budget. 


  • Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology
  • Comes with a crevice tool and upholstery tool 
  • Swivel steering offers excellent control 
  • Comes at an affordable price 
  • Stunning silver and gold color option 
  • Strong suction for deep cleaning 
  • Extra-long hose for above-floor cleaning

Since this is a corded model, you will have to plug it in to use. It does reduce the mobility but hey, you can clean your space without worrying about the battery dying midway. The LED lights on the nozzle make it easy to spot hidden debris. But, the dust cup is small in size, only about .42 dry quarts.

Further, this Shark vac has the DuoClean technology featuring two brushes that deep clean carpets as well as engages bare floors for a polished look. 


  • LED lights for visibility 
  • Features DuoClean technology 
  • Ultralightweight (only 4.5 pounds)
  • Small and compact design for handheld vacuum 
  • Suitable for above-floor cleaning as well 
  • Comes with a crevice tool, upholstery tool, and a dusting brush


  • It has a very small dust cup (.42 quarts)

8. Shark Navigator Lift-Away Professional Upright Vacuum NV356E

The Shark Navigator Lift is an affordable option that provides offers when it comes to cleaning different surfaces. From area rugs to hardwood floors, this vacuum can take on most surfaces and make it squeaky clean with its impressive suction power. 

Reviewers on Amazon raved about the smooth swivel steering. This vac is easy to maneuver and the detachable canister makes it easy to go under the furniture. 

Also, it comes with two crevices tool, and a pet upholstery tool, but lacks the Hard floor hero attachment. If you don’t really need an advanced vacuum cleaner and a powerful suction with some tools is all you need — this Shark vacuum is your best bet. 


  • Washable filters 
  • Excellent suction power 
  • Lighweight design 
  • Smooth swivel steering 
  • Affordable Shark upright vacuum
  • Detachable canister makes it easy to reach difficult spaces


  • Prone to tipping over


Things To Consider Before Buying Shark Vacuums

HEPA filter

Most Shark vacuums come with a HEPA filter today. It filters the air moving from the vacuum and removes pet dander and allergens for safety. These filters then help the filter to exhaust fresh air so you don’t suffocate while vacuuming your floors. Some vacuums have a replaceable filter, while some have washable. 

Size/ type of vacuum

Do you live in a small apartment with limited space? If so, then getting a small upright or handheld vac is a safe choice. What type of vacuum cleaner you should get depends on the place you have and the area you will be vacuuming. For more example, if you live in a larger home, then getting a larger vacuum will cut down how often you have to vacuum.

Dust cup size

Again, the area you will be vacuuming should influence the vacuum you should get. If you constantly vacuum a large space, you will need a vacuum with a larger dust cup. Similarly, if you need to vacuum small rooms, smaller dust cups will work just fine. 

Accessories/ Tools

Not all Shark vacuums come with a full array of tools like crevice tool, pet upholstery tool, etc. If you have a pet at your home, chances are all your furniture is covered with pet hair. In such a case, having a pet upholstery tool is ideal for cleaning pet hair. Further, having self-cleaning brushes (Zero-M technology) that prevent hair wrap also makes your job a lot easier. 

Robot vacuum

If you want a hands-free experience of vacuuming your space, getting a robot vacuum is the closest you can get. You can set up schedules and use voice control options for the little robot to work while you can lounge on your sofa and watch Netflix. Or ahem, do other serious adult responsibilities. 

Handheld vs upright vacuums 

Handheld vacuums are great for little messes and above-floor cleaning while upright vacuums are great for vacuuming floors and carpets. Most Shark upright vacuums can be transformed into a handheld vacuum as well, but check in before you make the final purchase. 


Shark vacuums are highly durable and are a great alternative to expensive Dyson vacuums. From handheld vacuums to robot vacuums, Shark has a plethora of options to choose from. The device you get should battle your cleaning problems and complement your space well. This is the list of some of the best Shark vacuums and we hope you find one that suits your needs. 

tuft and needle mint mattress review 2020

Tuft and Needle Mint Mattress Review (2021)

The Tuft and Needle Mint is an all-foam mattress that is 12 inches thick. It has three layers (which we go over below) and includes a polyester knit cover.

It’s currently on sale at, where it gets shipped to you compressed in a box. You simply unbox your new mattress, let it expand (this happens naturally and takes a matter of minute), and you’re ready to go.

Once the Mint arrives, you have a 100-night sleep trial to make sure it’s right for you. If it’s too firm or too soft, you can switch it out for another Tuft and Needle mattress or return it for a full refund.

But mattress returns – even when they’re of no charge – are a hassle. So we’re reviewing the Tuft and Needle Mint, to figure out:

  • How does the Mint provide support?
  • How does the Mint provide comfort?
  • How does the Mint provide cooling properties to keep you from waking up hot and bothered?

If a mattress does those three things (provide support, comfort, and cooling), there’s a good chance it’s the right mattress for you. But you also need to factor in mattress firmness and your preferred sleeping position, which are things we go over in our Tuft and Needle Mint buying guide at the end of this post.

Tuft and Needle Mint Mattress Review (2021)

tuft and needle mint mattress review 2020The Tuft and Needle Mint mattress is 12 inches thick and roughly medium to medium-firm. It was designed to accommodate back sleepers and side sleepers.

This is because its plush comfort layers of foam will fill in the gaps your body has when sleeping on its side (gaps in the torso and knees) and when sleeping on your back (gaps in the lower back).

Because the Tuft and Needle Mint uses its own special custom made poly-foam, it’s a very breathable and light mattress.

The Tuft & Needle Mint’s 3 Foam Layers

The first layer is 3 inches of Tuft and Needle’s own Adaptive® foam. T&N Adaptive® foam was made to slowly respond to your body’s weight and shape. So it contours to your body without sacrificing support. Because this foam contours – so your body is in the mattress a bit – Tuft and Needle put cooling graphite throughout this layer. This graphite absorbs and gets rid of any body heat.

The second layer is 2 inches of a slightly firmer and bouncier poly-foam. These two inches make up a transitional layer. They are firmer than the top layer but softer than the bottom layer. It makes the bed soft but not so soft that you’re sinking in and feeling like a turtle on its shell.

Plus, Tuft and Needle uses cooling beads in this transitional layer. The idea here is that these beads react to your body weight, giving you the support you need at the heavier parts of your body.

The third layer is Tuft and Needle’s base layer of foam. This is the support layer. This layer of foam is firm, rigid, and supportive. It gives the mattress stability. Your body isnt meant to sink down to this layer, instead all of the comfort you feel should be provided by the 5 inches of comfort layers we described above.

Let’s look at how everything the Tuft & Needle Mint Mattress offers – from cover to base layer of foam – comes together to make a quality mattress at an affordable price.

  1. The Tuft and Needle Mint uses two comfort layers at the top of the bed. Tuft & Needle’s original mattress (which we go over in our Tuft and Needle Reviews post) is a firmer mattress made for stomach and back sleepers. With the Mint, Tuft and Needle is trying to make a mattress that’s great for side sleepers or sleepers who want a softer bed.
  2. The Tuft and Needle Mint uses its custom made poly-foam, instead of memory foam. Instead, it uses TN’s own special made foam called Adaptive Foam. It’s poly-foam that TN custom made to adapt to your weight and shape without creating that “sinking in” feeling associated with memory foam mattresses.
  3. The Tuft and Needle Mint has three layers of foam. The middle layer is a transitional layer that keeps your body from feeling the firmer bottom layer of foam. This helps create that “cloud-like” sensation that Tuft and Needle customers report when reviewing the Mint.
  4. The Tuft and Needle Mint has graphite in its foam. This is used to help wick away heat from the bed’s surface. The Tuft and Needle Mint – because it doesn’t use memory foam – is already a light mattress with great breathability. The added graphite is a bonus.
  5. In the middle section of the Mint, Tuft and Needle puts ceramic gel beads for added support. Generally, a person weights more in the middle ⅓ of their body, so that’s where the Mint puts more of its support.
  6. The Tuft and Needle Mint has a 10-year warranty. This limited warranty is meant to protect you from premature sagging. If you use a mattress protector and a supportive bed frame, it could definitely last longer than those 10 years.

Tuft & Needle Mint Mattress Buying Guide

Below, we’re going to cover in more detail the key points of a mattress most consumers are concerned about, as they’re related to the performance of the Tuft & Needle Mint Mattress.


  • Cooling properties
  • Edge Support
  • Motion Isolation and Motion Transfer
  • Off-gassing
  • How Side Sleepers like the Mint
  • How Back Sleepers like the Mint
  • How Stomach Sleepers like the Mint
  • Pressure Relief and Overall Support
  • How does the Mint compare to the Original Tuft and Needle?
  • Shipping

Cooling Properties

The Tuft and Needle Mint keeps you cool in two ways.

  1. It uses graphite in its foam. In fact, it uses 30% more graphite than the original Tuft and Needle mattress. This graphite works by wicking away heat from the surface of the bed, keeping it cool.
  2. It uses advanced open-cell foam, not overly dense memory foam. This advanced open-cell foam lets air flow freely through the layers of foam, so air doesn’t get trapped in the bed, creating a heat trap.

Note: The Tuft & Needle Mint isn’t made specifically for hot sleepers, by which we mean people with medical conditions or people who are, on average, always hotter than the rest of us. For that, you’re looking for cooling mattresses with active cooling properties.

Edge Support

The Tuft and Needle Mint has a firm base layer of foam. This helps create a a firmer edge, so you don’t feel like you’re going to roll out of your bed.

Plus, the Mint’s middle layer – its transition layer – keeps you from feeling like you’re sinking to the bottom of your mattress.

Motion Isolation and Motion Transfer

The Mint gets good reviews for its motion isolation – this is where when your partner is moving throughout the night on their side of the bed (whether they are tossing and turning or getting up out of bed) and you don’t feel it.

This is mostly due to the three inch comfort layer of contouring Adaptive foam.


Because the Tuft and Needle Mint doesn’t use memory foam, there are practically no off-gassing concerns.

So, there is no rancid or unbecoming smell that fills your room – even for a day or two – after you unbox your new Mint mattress.

Side Sleepers

Generally speaking, side sleepers need a medium to medium soft to a soft mattress. This is because side sleepers don’t want to put pressure on their shoulder or hips. If you’re a side sleeper who is on a firmer mattress, you might feel your arm fall asleep because of the pressure you’re putting on your shoulder.

Or you might toss and turn throughout the night because of the pressure on your hips.

This Tuft and Needle Mint is a good option for side sleepers because of its two layers of comfort form, as attested to by several Tuft and Needle reviews, such as this one

tuft and needle mint mattress review for sider sleepers

And this one. . .

tuft and needle mint customer review for side sleepers

That being said, we’d consider the Mint as the firmest option for side sleepers – perfect for side sleepers who prefer a firm bed.

Back Sleepers

Back sleepers generally like a mattress that’s a medium to medium-firm on the firmness scale.

The risk of sleeping on the Tuft and Needle Mint if you’re a back sleeper is if your hips sink in too low into the bed. So it’ll depend a lot on your weight and body shape.

tuft and needle mint mattress review for back sleepers

If you’re heavier in your hips and of above average build, its possible that your hips might sink int too much, which can cause lower back pain.

Stomach Sleepers

Stomach sleepers need a firm bed. This is because if you’re sleeping on your stomach, you don’t want your stomach giving in to the bed. This creates a lot of pressure on your spine and lower back.

If you’re a stomach or heavier back sleeper, consider the original (and firmer) Tuft and Needle.

Note: Stomach sleeping is the least recommended sleeping position. If you’re currently on a mattress where you sleep on your stomach, it might be because you’re uncomfortable on your side and back.

Pressure Relief and Overall Support

The Tuft and Needle Mint uses its own custom foam to offer pressure relief and support. This is why it’s generally cheaper than other bed-in-a-box companies that offer memory foam or latex foam mattresses.

We can’t definitively say whether or not Tuft & Needle’s own foam is better or worse than memory foam or latex foam at being pressure-relieving foam.

But, generally, most customers agree that memory foam is great for pressure relief while it isn’t the best for overall support.

Tuft and Needle thinks they found the most affordable way to make the best mattress possible – ditching the high-density memory foam for their own blend of poly-foam.

That being said – if you suffer serious pressure points or aches and pains, you might want to consider a well-made, high-quality memory foam mattress before buying the Tuft & Needle Mint.

How does the Mint compare to the Original Tuft & Needle?

The original Tuft & Needle is:

  • Less expensive
  • Made up of 2 layers of foam instead of three
  • Made without as much graphite for cooling
  • Firmer and meant for budget mattress shoppers or stomach and back sleepers.


Tuft and Needle was one of the first foa bed companies to specialize in selling their mattresses online and shipping them to you in a box.

The mattress is compressed at the factory and delivered at your front door via FedEx ground.

You’re in charge of unboxing (a relatively easy process but a queen size mattress can weigh roughly 80lbs).

Here the weights for the Tuft & Needle Mint mattress.

  • Twin: 50 lbs
  • Twin XL: 52 lbs
  • Full: 66 lbs
  • Queen: 80 lbs
  • King: 100 lbs
  • California King: 100 lbs

Now, let’s look at some FAQs readers ask about the Tuft and Needle Mint.

Is Tuft and Needle Mint Worth It?

Even when it’s not on sale or running any particular promotion, the Tuft and Needle mint is only $995 for a queen size mattress.

That makes the Tuft and Needle Mint worth it, as long as you’re a side sleeper or want a medium to medium soft mattress that doesn’t use memory foam.

Plus, thanks to its graphite cooling technology and open-cell adaptive foam, the Mint is cool and breathable.

Which is Better Tuft and Needle or Casper?

When trying to decide which is better – Tuft and Needle or Casper – it’s good to keep in mind these are very different mattress brands.

Tuft and Needle is more budget-friendly. It doesn’t use memory foam or latex foam or zoned support foam.

Casper mattresses do generally cost more, but they use more advanced mattress technology, such as gel infused memory foam, latex foam, and zoned support

For a more detailed breakdown between these two major mattress companies, we put together a post on tuft and needle vs casper.

Is Tuft and Needle Mint Firm?

The Tuft and Needle Mint is a medium firm mattress.

In fact, most customers report that it’s softer than anticipated, but based on everything we know, we’d say for the average sleeper this mattress is a medium to medium soft firmness.


Keetsa Mattress Review 2022: A Buyer’s Guide to Keetsa Beds

Keetsa makes six high-quality mattresses, with price points ranging from $490 to $2390. They make innerspring, pillow-top, memory foam, and hybrid mattresses – which means they have an option for everyone.

[wptb id=1627]

But Keetsa is relatively new to the market and it can be difficult to find informative Keetsa mattress reviews that tell you whether or not you’ll get a good night’s sleep on a Keetsa bed. While Keetsa offers a trial period, it’s best to find out as much about a Keesta mattress as you can before you buy, because:

  1. Keetsa’s return policy requires you to sleep on the mattress for 30 days before you start the return process. This is relatively normal in the bed in a box industry, but it’s still frustrating. It means you can be sleeping on a mattress that doesn’t work for you for an entire month.
  2. Keetsa charges a 10% processing fee on returned mattresses. This is less common in the mattress industry, but will probably become more common as the online mattress industry grows – returning a bed isn’t cheap on the company or good for the environment. Still, paying a 10% fee for a product you don’t want sucks.

To help you avoid the processing fee and pick a bed that’s actually comfortable for you, we’ve looked at all of their six models, read through customer feedback, and put together this guide to all 6 Keetsa mattresses.

In this post, we do our best to explain all you need to know about Keetsa – the good and the bad.

Keetsa Mattress Reviews (2022)

  1. Keetsa Plus – This is Keetsa’s most inexpensive option. It’s a firmer mattress, so it’s our choice for stomach and back sleepers.
  2. Keetsa Pillow Plus – This plusher version of the Keetsa Plus is great for side sleepers.
  3. Keetsa Cloud – This is firm to medium-firm all foam mattress. We’d recommend this one for back or stomach sleepers.
  4. Keetsa Tea Leaf Supreme – A 12 inch memory foam mattress, the Keetsa Tea Leaf Supreme is our favorite Keetsa model and is great for all kinds of sleepers (stomach, back, side, and combination).
  5. Keeta Tea Leaf Classic – Exactly one inch thicker than the Tea Leaf Supreme, the Tea Leaf Classic a great mattress for sleepers who like that plush feel.
  6. Keeeta Tea Leaf Dream – Keetsa’s most luxurious model, the Tea Leaf Dream is a medium-soft memory foam mattress that offers edge support.

For more information on each model, keep reading below.

1. Keetsa Plus

keetsa plus review as part of our keetsa mattress reviews

The Keetsa Plus is a firm coil mattress that is made for back sleepers and stomach sleepers. Its 9 inches thick and comes to you in a box with free shipping.

Mattress Insider Tip: 9 inches is a relatively thin mattress. A good rule of thumb states that the thinner a mattress, the firmer it will be. This is a firm mattress and is likely too firm for side sleepers. If you’re looking for a good Keetsa mattress for side sleepers, consider the Keetsa Pillow Plus. 

The Keetsa Plus mattress has a cotton canvas cover. The cotton cover is unbleached and certified by STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX, which means it’s eco-friendly, free of harmful chemicals, and safe to sleep on. Plus, because it’s 100% cotton, it’s the cover is breathable, so you’re not likely to sleep hot through the night.

Beneath the cotton canvas cover, there is a fire barrier (required for all mattresses) and fiber padding that Keetsa says, “keeps you cooler by wicking away moisture and increasing airflow.”

Beneath the cooling fiber padding is a layer of Bio Foam. Keetsa’s Bio Foam is memory foam, which means it’s great for supporting you without trigging pressure points. This is because memory foam conforms to your body. Keetsa uses CertiPUR-US certified foams in their beds, to help reduce any risk of off-gassing.

Beneath the Bio Foam is a layer of Comfort Foam. Keetsa’s Comfort Foam is poly-foam, which means it’s more breathable than memory foam but not as pressure-relieving. It makes sense that Keetsa put it beneath the Bio Foam. Some mattress companies put poly-foam as the top layer, but Keetsa prefers to arrange its foam layers this way:

  1. Memory foam/ pressure relieving foam on top.
  2. Poly foam / firmer foam as the 2nd or 3rd layer.

This means Keetsa mattresses are great for increased motion isolation (so you and your partner won’t wake each other up when one of you moves in the mattress) and pressure relief.

Finally, the last part of the Keetas Plus mattress is Keetsa’s iCoil® system. Keetsa uses individually wrapped coils – sometimes called pocketed coils – which are great for cutting down on motion transfer, separating weight and motion. Plus, coil mattresses are the most breathable mattresses on the market.

2. Keetsa Pillow Plus – $990

The Keetsa Pillow Plus is a thicker, softer version of the Keetsa Plus. The Keetsa Pillow Plus is 11 inches thick and features an extra layer of high-density foam between the comfort foam and the iCoil support system.

The Keetsa Pillow Plus is a good option for back, stomach, and side sleepers.

3. Keetsa Cloud – $990

Keesta Cloud Review Diagram

The Keetsa Cloud is a 10-inch memory foam mattress. It uses the same cotton canvas cover and fire barrier found in the Keetsa coil mattresses.

We’d like to have seen a little more focus on providing you a cool sleep since this is a memory foam mattress and the cover that works for a coil mattress may not be enough for an all-foam mattress.

The Keetsa Cloud uses the same Bio Foam memory foam material found in the iCoil series but the difference is instead of a coil support system, the Keetsa Cloud uses a core made out of poly-foam.

This actually makes a pretty firm feel, which is why the Keetsa cloud is recommended for stomach and back sleepers.

4. Tea Leaf Supreme – $1,590

The Keetsa Tea Leaf Supreme is a soft, 12-inch memory foam mattress that is perfect for back, stomach, and side sleepers.

It’s in the Teal Leaf Supreme that the cover changes from a cotton canvas cover to a hemp blend cover. The hemp blend cover is soft but durable, and is still certified by OEKO – TEX to be safe for your skin.

Besides that, none of the materials in the Tea Leaf Supreme change, you just get more memory foam. The Teal Leaf Supreme is the first Keesta mattress where you’re really getting that “memory foam” feel, so it’s conforming and pressure-relieving.

For a complete breakdown of this mattress, check out our Keetsa Tea Leaf Supreme review.

5. Tea Leaf Classic – $1,590

Keetsa’s Tea Leaf Classic is a 13-inch hybrid mattress with a hemp blender cover, layers of conforming Bio Foam, responsive comfort foam, and supportive high-density foam. Plus, beneath it all, there’s the individually wrapped coils as a support system that increases the Tea Leaf Classic’s breathability.

6. Tea Leaf Dream – $2,390

The Tea Leaf Dream is Keetsa’s most luxurious mattress that is 14 inches thick and contains all of the materials in the Tea Leaf Classic but extras like pressure relief foam and edge support.

The Keetsa Tea Leaf Dream is a good bed, but at over $2,000 it’s not competing with brands such as Casper and Brooklyn Bedding.

Note: If you’d like to see a direct comparison between Keetsa and Casper, we wrote a Keetsa vs Casper comparison.

The one thing the Tea Leaf Dream has that most brands do not – edge support. If you want your new bed to come with edge support – something that is difficult to find in bed in a box brands – then the Keetsa Tea Leaf Dream might be the right one for you.

Edge Support

Edge support is when the edge of your mattress is firmer or more rigid than the rest of your mattress.

Customers like edge support because:

  1. When they sit on the edge of their bed to get up or tie their shoes, the edge of the bed doesn’t collapse.
  2. A lot of people sleep relatively close to the edge of the bed. Without edge support, some customers feel like they’ll literally roll-off.

Mattress Warranties

Buying mattresses online is not without its risks. You don’t get to try the mattress out and make sure you like it. This is why online mattress companies generally offer a sleep trial. Plus, reputable mattress brands offer (at least) a ten-year warranty to protect your investment.

How Long Do Keetsa Mattresses last?

All Keetsa mattresses have a 12-year warranty. The warranty covers “open seams that cause damager to the inner foam or spring material” that impact “the overall function or comfort of the mattress.”

The warranty also covers “visible” and “permanent” sags in the mattress that are greater than 1.5”. That’s a pretty big sag. In fact, most mattresses we review cover a sag that is ¾” or greater.

Finally, for the Keetsa’s coil mattresses, the warranty covers coil failure. Coil failure is when a coil doesn’t bounce back or a coil protrudes out of the mattress.

For the warranty to be valid, your Keetsa mattress must be supported by an appropriate bed frame.

This means, the bed frame must:

  • Be sturdy, in good shape
  • Be flat or nearly flat (with more than 4 inch gaps between wooden slats)
  • Shouldn’t be the old boxspring  your old mattress is currently on

Keetsa makes three different frames that fit these qualifications:

Shipping and Sleep Trials / Return Policies

Keetsa offers free delivery in the 48 contiguous United States (with delivery to Hawaii, Alaska and most of Canada for an extra charge).

Keetsa wants to make sure you enjoy your mattress, so if you get it home and don’t like it, here’s what you can do.

First, you must try your Keetsa mattress for 30 days. Keetsa says this is because it can take 30 days to really get adjusted to a new mattress.

Second, if after those 30 days you still don’t like it, reach out to Keetsa to discuss your options. If your complaint is your new Keetsa mattress is too firm then Keetsa will probably try to sell you a comfort layer that you put between the mattress and the sheet.

Third, if you don’t want a comfort layer and just want to return the Keetsa mattress, then Keetsa will pick up your mattress and refund you your money, minus a 10% processing fee.

Mattress Certifications

Anyone can make a mattress and sell it online – honestly, it isn’t that difficult to find a mattress supplier, pay them to make the bed, and put your name on it.

One of the ways to separate the amateurs from the professionals is by looking to see what kind of mattress certifications a mattress brand has.

Mattress certifications help show that a mattress is well-made, flame resistant, eco-friendly, safe to sleep on, and more.

Okay, but do Do Keesta Mattresses Have any Certifications?

Yes, all Keetsa mattresses use Certi-PUR® US certified foams and Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex® textiles, to make sure you’re only sleeping on safe and toxin-free materials.

Mattress Types

There are three main mattress types.

  1. Innerspring mattresses – Sometimes called spring beds or coil mattresses. Innerspring mattresses are the most popular/traditional type of mattress. This is likely the mattress you grew up on. They are bouncy and affordable.
  2. All-Foam mattresses – This could be memory foam or latex foam or poly-foam. All-foam mattresses, especially memory foam mattresses, are more gaining in popularity because foam mattresses are generally very supportive and comfy.
  3. Hybrid mattresses – A hybrid mattress is a mattress that is roughly half coils and half foam. This means there are latex hybrids, memory foam hybrids, and poly-foam hybrids. Hybrid mattresses try to give you the pressure relief of an all-foam bed, with the familiar bounce of an innerspring mattress.

Below, we go over each type in more detail, including the pros and cons of all the mattress types.

Innerspring vs. Hybrid vs. Memory foam

Innerspring mattresses, sometimes called coil mattresses, are the most popular mattress technology on the market. But they come with both pros and cons.

  • Pro: Innerspring mattresses have a nice familiar bounce, tend to be less expensive than latex mattresses or memory foam mattresses, and are very breathable (so you don’t sleep hot).
  • Con: Innerspring mattresses aren’t the best for pressure-relief. The bounce of coil mattresses can also lead to high motion transfer (so if your partner moves in the middle of the night you can feel it).

Hybrid mattresses are popular because they provided the pressure-relieving benefits of a foam mattress but give you that familiar bounce and comfort associated with coil mattresses. Hybrid mattresses tend to be pretty expensive, but besides that are a very popular type of mattress.

Memory foam mattresses are some of the best mattresses for relieving pain points, conforming to your body, and reducing tossing and turning. But low-quality memory foam mattresses can sleep sink in too much, leading to back pain and sleeping hot.
