The Good
(Sleeping Duck Mattress)

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. All their foam are Australian made and any foam layer or mattress you return is donated or recycled. Plus, they were recently awarded the top rated mattress by independent tester CHOICE.

It's not easy choosing which Koala feature customers love best. The quick delivery service, seamless returns, and good customer service are just a few strengths. However, we were amazed at how many customers said their back and neck pain disappeared after sleeping on the Koala.

The Bad
(Sleeping Duck Mattress)

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.

(Koala Mattress Review – Why Do Australian’s Love it?)

While many customers love the Koala, there are complaints about durability and firmness. Some customers say adjusting to the mattress takes time, but others found it too firm after several weeks. Others say the lack of edge support makes it difficult to get in and out of bed. Before buying this mattress, see if the company's 120-day trial period applies to your area.
