Owners Rating Based on 24 ratings

Product description from Casper:

Note: The Casper Element mattress was previously known as the Casper Essential. Its name was changed in Spring 2020.

"Value, engineered."

We challenged ourselves to create a Casper-quality mattress at a more affordable price. The Essential brings award-winning engineering into a streamlined design. So you can snore for less on the most comfortable mattress at this price point.

  • Constructed for Comfort: The Essential’s top two layers borrow elements from our signature mattress to blend support, breathability, and bounce
  • Sleeps Cool: Like all Casper mattresses, the Essential features breathable open-cell foam for all-night coolness. Pulls heat away from the body and disperses hot air back into the atmosphere.
  • Durable Design: With a durable knit cover and high-quality foams, the Essential is built to last you night after night, move after move.

Each Casper Essential mattress contains:

  • 1.5" Top Foam: Open-cell foam keeps you cool and adds just the right bounce.
  • 1" Memory Foam: Responsive, high-density memory foam provides pressure relief.
  • 6" Support Foam: Durable support foam strengthens the comfort layers and adds long-lasting durability.
  • Woven Cover: Made from premium textiles, the woven cover is breathable, flexible, resilient, and removable.

Our foams are Certi-Pur certified, and the fire sock and top of our cover is OEKO-TEX® certified. Your new Casper Essential mattress is covered by a 10 year limited warranty.
