Quick Overview

Marpac – a company that first gained fame from producing the Dohm white noise machine – offers two mattress models as part of their Yogasleep: Tools for All-Natural Slumber collection:

  • The Yogabed is Marpac’s flagship mattress model. The bed is constructed with comfort layers of high-density polyfoam and gel memory foam, along with a 5″ high-density polyfoam base. The polyester-blend cover can be zipped off for cleaning. The Yogabed measures 10″ thick and is considered ‘Medium Firm,’ or a 6.5 on the 1-10 firmness scale.
  • The Unplug Mattress also measures 10″ thick and features two layers: a 2″ gel memory foam comfort layer and an 8″ high-density polyfoam support core. This bed also has a removable polyester-blend cover. The Unplug Mattress is considered ‘Medium’ (5) in terms of firmness.

Both the Yogabed and the Unplug Mattress excel at motion isolation; the beds have thick foam comfort systems that absorb and minimize motion transfer very well, and they are also virtually silent when bearing weight. These two factors make them great options for couples. Even conforming and pain/pressure relief are other strong points, although the Yogabed and Unplug Mattress each offer distinct sleep experiences that cater to different weights and sleep positions.

Marpac offers free mattress shipping anywhere in the contiguous U.S., and the Yogabed and Unplug Mattress are both backed by 101-night sleep trials and 10-year warranties. Read on to learn more about mattress construction, pricing, and ratings, as well as Marpac’s shipping, return, and warranty policies.

Sleep Rating

Durability
Good

The Yogabed has an expected lifespan of roughly six to seven years, which is comparable to that of the average all-foam mattress.

Motion Isolation
Very Good

Like many other all-foam mattresses, the Yogabed minimizes and isolates motion to a significant extent, resulting in fewer nighttime disruptions for sleepers.

Conforming
Good

The Yogabed conforms to a sleeper’s body and relieves pressure fairly well, though it may be too firm for some.

Sex
Fair

The Yogabed is not particularly responsive or bouncy, which is typical of a memory foam mattress, and may not be as good for sex as a result.

Temperature Neutrality
Fair

The Yogabed can be a heat trap for some, causing them to sleep uncomfortably warm or hot.

Off-gassing
Good

Yogabed mattresses will produce some off-gassing after unpacking, but these smells will usually dissipate in one to two days.

Edge Support
Fair

The Yogabed's edge support is fair at best; sinkage is likely to develop in places around the perimeter of the bed where peope tend to sit.

Noise
Excellent

The Yogabed is virtually silent when bearing weight.

Sleep Rating

Durability
Good

The Unplug Mattress is reinforced with 8" of high-density polyfoam, making it more durable and resilient than many of its all-foam competitors.

Motion Isolation
Very Good

Motion isolation is a key strength of the Unplug Mattress, which absorbs and minimizes transfer to a significant extent.

Conforming
Very Good

The Unplug Mattress offers a 'Medium' feel and close conforming that makes it particularly suitable for side sleepers.

Sex
Fair

The Unplug Mattress is not particularly responsive; it may not be sufficient for couples who prefer bouncier surfaces.

Temperature Neutrality
Good

The Unplug Mattress may sleep hot for some, but temperature neutrality is on par with that of the average all-foam model.

Off-gassing
Good

Some off-gassing may occur when the mattress is new, but the Unplug Mattress is not associated with excessively strong or persistent odors.

Edge Support
Fair

Edge support for the Unplug Mattress is fair at best; sinkage around the perimeter is likely to occur over time.

Noise
Excellent

The Unplug Mattress is virtually silent when bearing weight.

Both the Yogabed and Unplug Mattress measure 10″ thick. The Yogabed offers a ‘Medium Firm’ feel and moderate conforming that makes it suitable for sleepers who weigh at least 130 pounds, particularly back or stomach sleepers who often feel most comfortable on firmer surfaces. The Unplug Mattress, on the other hand, provides a softer surface and deeper conforming; this bed is optimal for those who weigh 230 pounds or less, as well as side sleepers.

Our testing process found the Yogabed and Unplug Mattress should also be great for you if…

  • You want to purchase a mattress at a below-average price-point
  • You frequently experience aches and pains in your neck, shoulders, back, and other sensitive areas
  • You and/or your sleep partner awaken easily due to movement or noise
  • You prefer beds with average thickness profiles

Warranty

  1. This warranty is partially prorated. During the first two years of ownership, Marpac will repair or replace any defective mattress at no charge to the owner. From years 2 to 5, owners must pay a prorated mattress replacement fee that amounts to 30% of the original product price; during years 5 to 8, they pay a 50% prorated fee; and during years 8 to 10, they pay a 75% prorated fee.
  2. Owners must cover all shipping and transportation costs associated with mattress repairs or replacements at any point of the warranty.
  3. The warranty will be voided if the mattress is not used with a supportive foundation. Per Marpac: “The Yogabed Mattress is intended to be used on a foundation with a center support that has at least 5 to 6 support legs in the case of a Queen, King and California King or with 4 support legs for Twin, Twin XL, and Full mattresses. For queen, king, and cal king slatted-style bed frames, it is incumbent upon the customer to ensure the frame utilized offers ample structural support for the mattress and foundation in view of the particular slatted-style frame.”
  4. The warranty will cover the following defects:
    • Visible sagging or indentations in the sleep surface that measure one inch (1″) or deeper.
    • Physical flaws in the mattress that cause foams and other materials to split or crack.
    • Defects associated with the mattress cover, including torn fabric or unraveled stitches.
  5. The warranty will not cover the following:
    • Sagging or indentations in the sleep surface that do not measure one inch (1″) or deeper, or normal increases in mattress softness that do not affect its pressure-relieving abilities. These issues are considered standard wear and tear.
    • Damage caused by dampness or mold.
    • Burns, cuts, tears, stains, and other types of physical damage that occur due to misuse, neglect, or improper foundational support.
  6. This warranty is non-transferable. It is exclusively available to original owners who purchase their mattress from Marpac or an authorized retailer. Those who buy or acquire their mattress from the original owner or a non-authorized retailer will not be eligible for warranty coverage.
