Ecosa, Napp And Winkl Comparison – A Guide To NZ’s Big 3

New Zealand has three all foam mattress-in-a-box options: Ecosa, Napp, and Winkl. Each has different characteristics and different reasons why one might be the best mattress for you over the others. In this Ecosa, Napp, and Winkl comparison post, I’ll give you a side-by-side overview of each, price breakdown, and give some buying recommendations to help you choose.

Which Is Better: Ecosa, Napp Or Winkl?

The answer is going to depend on YOU, there is no one answer. The great news is they are all much cheaper than mattresses from shops, without compromising on any comfort. In fact, they are great for your back. Here are my recommendations:

Buy Ecosa If: 

  • You want a firm mattress
  • You like to sleep on your stomach: a firmer mattress will be better for your spine because it will have more support through your hips
  • You weigh more than 150kg: you need a firm mattress to give you adequate support. Interestingly, if you buy a softer mattress, it can end up feeling too hard because you sink through the comfort layers and feel the support core of the mattress – this isn’t what you want, you want to feel well supported

Buy Napp If:

  • You’re not sure what firmness you want
  • You share a bed with someone who likes a different firmness than you. Napp will be a better compromise
  • You like to sleep on your side: Napp will give you more pressure relief through your shoulder
  • You want to support local

Buy Winkl If:

  • You want 20 extra nights in your sleep trial
  • You’re interested in the upgrades that come with the Lux mattress (I think this is a great mattress for its price, much better value than all the extras a big box store might try to charge for)
