Quick Summary

Casper is a U.S.-based manufacturer best known for its memory foam and hybrid mattress selection. The company also offers three pillow models:

  • The Casper Pillow contains polyester microfiber fill. It features a pillow-on-pillow design with an internal pillow cushioned with crimped microfibers that offer stronger head and neck support, along with an outer pillow padded with longer, softer fibers for added cushioning. The outer pillow has a pima cotton-percale cover with polyester inner lining, as well as 2-inch gussets. It is considered ‘Medium Soft.’ The cover has a zipper that allows owners to remove the inner pillow for washing.
  • The Casper Down Pillow features a chambered design consisting of 60 percent white duck down and 40 percent feather fill in the inner chamber, and 80 percent down and 20 percent feather fill in the outer chamber. All down and feathers are ethically sourced. The pillow also has an inner polyester liner and a cotton shell. The pillow is considered ‘Soft.’
  • The Casper Foam Pillow is constructed with three layers of foam to support the head and neck. The center foam layer offers support while the top and bottom layers are softer for conforming comfort. All three layers contain small channels allowing for strong breathability compared to most all-foam pillows. The pillow is considered “Medium Soft’ on the firmness scale.

The Casper Pillow is fairly pliable and offers good support for most sleepers regardless of their body dimensions or sleep position. The microfibers and breathable cover help regulate the temperature, allowing the pillow to sleep fairly cool, and the gusseted edges help maintain a consistent shape and good fill distribution. Both pillow layers are machine-washable, as well.

The Casper Down Pillow can also be washed and dried in any front-loading machine, making it easier to clean than many competing down/feather pillows. Its ultra-plush surface is ideal for people who enjoy the sensation of their head and neck sinking into the pillow. The chambered design makes the pillow fairly resilient and supportive, as well.

The Casper Foam pillow is a ‘Medium Soft’ pillow with a supportive core layer to relieve pressure on the head and neck regardless of sleeping position. More temperature neutral than most all-foam pillow, the foam layers features ventilation holes to allow for airflow throughout the pillow. Further, the jersey knit cover that provides a fairly breathable outer shell.

This design is ideal for those who sleep hot but like the conforming feeling of a memory foam pillow. The cover is easy to remove and machine wash.

Casper sells all three pillow models in standard and king sizes. Read on to learn more about these products in terms of construction, pricing, and performance ratings, as well as the company’s customer policies and similar brand recommendations.

In conclusion, the Casper Pillow’s dual-layer offers stronger support and better temperature neutrality than many competing models with polyester microfiber fill.

Shape retention is another key strength; gusseted sides help evenly distribute the fill throughout the interior, and the inner pillow adds extra structural support.

It is easy to clean and highly moldable, as well. However, the pillow is exclusively available in a ‘Medium Soft’ setting and may not conform closely enough to alleviate aches and pains for sleepers with discomfort issues.

The Casper Down Pillow is also very easy to clean, as it can be washed and dried in any machine. Comparatively, down and feather pillows typically need spot-cleaning or dry-cleaning. The pillow also has a chambered design, making it more durable than most competing down/feather models with an open interior. Like the Casper pillow, the Casper Down offers limited conforming to the head and neck.

The Casper Foam pillow offers three malleable layers consisting of polyfoam and memory foam, making for excellent conforming and moldability. It also features tiny vents that make it more breathable that most foam pillows. Nonetheless, its all-foam construction will inevitably trap some body heat.

All three pillows are only available in one firmness/loft setting, making them a bit less versatile than some competitors.

What Type of Sleeper is Best Suited to a Casper Pillow?

Based on our evaluations and customer feedback, the Casper Pillow received the following grades from sleepers with different weights and preferred positions.
