The Good
A medium-firm support system is the best part of the Noa. Many customers enjoy the combination of foam and springs, which features the best of both sleep systems. The natural latex is also a plus for hybrid designs, as several competitors use synthetic foam instead of the higher quality material.
Customisation is the key to Sleeping Duck's success. Customers can choose between two firmness levels, and then switch up layers if it's not suitable. It's easy to contact the customer service reps and ask for a firmer or softer layer. Plus, all their foam are Australian made and any foam layer or mattress you return is donated or recycled.
The Bad
Although the Noa is firmer than all-foam designs, it's still too firm for some. A firm feel is good for side and back sleepers. However, small sleepers or stomach sleepers may find it too hard. This is especially important to keep in mind for couples with vastly different preferences.
Easily, the weakness of this mattress is the price. Almost every size is several hundred dollars higher than the average foam design in our index. There are a few mattress with similar price tags, but this is one of the more expensive hybrid models. Below, we explain how the Sleeping Duck's construction and materials contribute to the cost.
