The Logan And Cove Mattress is referred specifically as the “Choice Hybrid” and is 13.5″ tall, with 8″ pocket coils and 2.5″ of foam along with a 1.5″ quilted pillowtop piece.

My Logan and Cove Mattress review discusses the features and benefits of this hybrid (has both coils and foam layers) mattress. For the money, the luxury feel and components used to build it are well worth the price.

First off, its Canada’s best selling pillow top and innerspring hybrid, and consistently gets high marks from verified owners for both relieving pressure and back pain.

It is available in Canada only, and we also review this mattress on our Best Mattresses In Canada page, and compare it with other Canada brands.

For the money (a queen costs C$999, king is C$1299), it’s well made using multiple layers of comfort material including a unique silk blend fill built right into the pillow top.

I’d describe the level of firmness at about 6/10, so medium firm-but not soft. The Logan & Cove Mattress feels like a great hotel mattress that I look forward to ending my day on.

I’ll get into the details and test my sample queen size mattress to find out just what makes it tick.

The Logan and Cove Mattress is available in two options, either the model, which the company calls the “Choice”, or the “Frontier” model. This page takes a look at the Choice option, but you can also visit my Logan & Cove Frontier Mattress review page to check out the upgraded version.

Note: The Logan & Cove Mattress vs. The Logan And Cove Frontier Mattress, which is identical to the Choice except for the addition of a nano-coil layer. The cost for the upgrade is $300, but may be well worth it for some.

Pocketed Coils Add Support, And Reduce Pressure When Side Or Back Sleeping

The use of pocketed coils inside The Logan And Cove Mattress delivered better uplifting support thatn I’ve experienced with any all foam mattress I’ve reviewed. Even after nestling into a side sleeping or back position sleeping, I never got the sensation of being stuck-considering I’m a pretty big guy.

Couples with combined weights of more than 450 lbs. might want to consider a mattress designed for bigger bodies.

The overall feeling of the Logan And Cove Mattress is a more inviting and nestled in sensation, with solid edge support so you don’t slide off. You don’t have to plant your feet into the floor, and it’s easy to sit up, put your shoes on, and get in and out. Overall it’s soft and gentle in just the right spots as well, I felt.

I think most buyers are wary of plusher mattress options primarily because they’ve had bad experiences with mattresses that you have to dig your way out of every time you changed position. This often results in poor sleep habits, along with often finding plusher mattress options feeling too hot.

Overview And Basic Bullet Points About The Logan & Cove Mattress

My Logan And Cove Mattress review began with the picture perfect arrival of my sample.

The Logan And Cove Mattress is shipped inside a heavy duty shipping box, and is pre-compressed and vacuum packaged.

Once person can handle a queen (pretty easy for me) but I think I’d struggle with a king size. The bag is easily removed from the 109lb (44kg) mattress, and took about 3 hours to fully come back to factory size.

Pro tip: Once you unfurl it, let your mattress air out for 24 hours before sleeping on it, and plop it up and down a few times on your foundation or platform before permanently using. This allows the mattress to ventilate and fabrics and foam layers to expand fully.

Whether you choose the firm or more plush option, which are identical in cost, the quilted and tufted pillow top carries on the traditional comfy and cozy immersive feel we all are familiar with and love.

When you take a look at what is under the hood, it’s pretty impressive, for the price. I’ve reviewed higher end Signature and Black mattress options that cost $3,000 and more, with less features and components.

Plus, 4,796 verified owners gave the The Logan And Cove Luxury Hybrid Pillow-Top Mattress a 4.7 out of 5 star rating. The reviews are collected by Yotpo, a third party e-commerce review and social proof platform.

The Logan And Cove Mattress is one of those mattresses that you really don’t want to cover up with bedding, in my opinion. It’s got great curb appeal!

It’s shipped in typical vacuum package and rolled format, making it really easy to handle nce you get it to your door.

I recommend taking the fully rolled mattress out of the shipping carton, taking it to your bedroom and unfurling it on top of the foundation or platform you are going to use.

The very outer fabric is Tencel, and is a form of rayon. It consists of cellulose fiber, made from dissolving wood pulp and then reconstituting it by dry jet-wet spinning. It’s a natural material, completely non-toxic.

Tencer is used to make textiles for clothing and other purposes. It wicks moisture away from your body and produces evaporative cooling in the process.

Test Results And Interpretation: Does The Logan & Cove Mattress Delivers On Comfort And Support

  1. Overall Comfort: I’d describe the initial feel as immersive and cozy, sinking only about 2.75″-3.5″ (7.0-8.9cm) in depth when measured at my hips and shoulders, and I am fairly tall and weigh 185lbs. This still allowed me to comfortably settle either on my sides or on my back, and with 2.75″ (7.0cm) of gel foam and an additional quilted outer pillowtop piece that is 1.5″ thick, I felt plenty of cushioning to provide an excellent level of comfort. For couples the experience should be similar. Rating for this variable: 10
  2. Cooling: Effective, though not perfect, I used temperature probes to measure the difference before lying on the mattress, and 30 minutes after remaining still in the center. Initial room temperature was 71F, and after lying on my back for 45 minutes, the internal temperature of the mattress (2.5 inch depth) was 81.5F, way below body temperature. I rated this variable at 9 out of 10
  3. Pressure Relief: Specific pressure points at hips and shoulders are alleviated effectively, and with pretty good results for pressure relief along my spine. Compared to an all foam mattress such as The Octave Vista, the Logan And Cove mattress is a 6.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale, provided a 25% more buoyant feel, which created more float factor, allowing weight to be moved laterally rather than downward. I rated this variable at 9 out of 10.
  4. Motion Transfer: Equipped with plentiful 4″ foam and pillowtop combination, along with 8″ pocket coils below, disturbance from changing positions or getting in/out of bed is not readily observable, making it a great couple option. I rated this variable at 9 out of 10.
  5. Ease Of Turning: Very easy to due buoyancy of mattress. I rated this variable at 9 out of 10.
  6. Edge Support: Outstanding. I immersed 3.5″ when sitting upright on the edge of the mattress. I weigh 185lb, and 187lb. is the average weight of an individual in Canada. I rated this variable 10 out of 10.
  7. Intimacy: Tested using fitted sheet to evaluate sliding and grip factor. The 1″ Polyfoam (Gel-infused, in Euro-top, which is made with 50% synthetic and natural (eucalyptus) woven fibers (vs. knit) and has minimal sliding (75% less that a stretch knit fabric I’ve tested on other comparable models). The mattress is buoyant, and accommodates cuddling and sleeping together without creating a “trapped sensation”. I rated this variable at 9 out of 10.
  8. Value vs. Cost: At $999 in queen and $1299 in king. The typical price in Canada for a hybrid mattress in queen is C$1100, with 60% of Canadians preferring hybrid mattresses over an all foam mattress. My expertise is in components, and you get more than you would expect in this 13.5″ option.
  9. Detectable Odors: Slight baked goods and new carpet smell for 1-2 days, but quickly disappears. Rated this variable at 9 out of 10.
  10. Warranty: Solid, though 20 years would have been great. Honestly, replace your mattress every 8 years- here’s why. I rated this variable 9 out of 10.
Temperature probes used to evaluate cooling on the Logan And Cove Mattress.
I test cooling results for all of my mattress testing using internal probes rather than hand held heat imaging devices, to get more accurate results.

For the money, at C$999 in queen and C$1299 in king, this mattress is a really great Canada mattress option. I found it easy on shoulders and hips, immersive and slightly bouncy, easy to trun on, and never once got “stuck” in the middle.

I tested my sample for cooling, and found that the breathability of the outer fabric contributed greatly to how body heat is moved away.

Initial room temperature was 71F, and after lying on my back on the Logan And Cove Mattress for 45 minutes, the internal temperature of the mattress (2.5 inch depth) was 81.5F, way below body temperature.

Edge support is fantastic on The Logan And Cove Mattress, and couples weighing under 204 kg (450lb) will find it supportive enough even when cuddling in the center.

For intimacy, the mattress responds well, prevents slipping and sliding, and allows for cuddling in the middle without being trapped- likely because of the firmer pocket coil system used in the design.

I was impressed with the amazing edge support, attributed to the pocket coil base and the higher density support foams used in its construction. The gel foam and underlying support foam are a bit better grade and density (4lb. vs. 2-3) than a lot of competitors products sold at similar price points and are made using certified, safe foam.

At C$999 In Queen And $1299 In King, The Logan And Cove Meets And Exceeds My Expectations For Comfort And Support

I first reviewed and tested this mattress a while ago for our best mattresses in Canada page. It was originally manufactured made in Canada and in the last few years the brand has been manufactured in the USA as well, and it’s caught on, fast.

When I wrote the Logan and Cove mattress review on my Canada page a few years ago, it was sold regionally, but quickly went international, as the company opened multiple factories in the USA

I’ve received emails from owners who clicked through our recommendations who testify that their Logan And Cove Luxury Hybrid Pillow Top Mattress relieved back pressure they’ve had for decades, improved sleep, and even calmed restless sleepers.

As a mattress designer myself for over 25 years, I can tell you whether a mattress is overstuffed, or whether it is well balanced.

Many times, especially with innerspring mattresses, most of the body contact fill material, or what’s called “comfort layers” near the top. not enough effort is put into proper spine support, especially for side sleepers.

The Logan And Cove Luxury Hybrid Pillow Top Mattress is okay to use for all sleeper types, even belly sleepers, because the plush version will allow just the right amount of body immersion without arching your spine. I like a softer mattress that has good underlying pushback, and preferred the plush option because of hip and shoulder pain, as well.

For back sleepers, or those of us who need a firmer overall feel, the luxury firm option gives you a bit more support without feeling hard, and still gives you pressure point relief at hot spots like shoulders and hips.

As a mattress designer for over 25 years, I look for a specific pattern of layers, the proper foam densities, and the thickness of the layers, as a hallmark of how supportive and comfortable a mattress will be.

With either firmness option of The Logan And Cove Luxury Hybrid Pillow Top Mattress, the guts of the mattress are basically the same:

  • Tencel quilted outer fabric encasement
  • Silky blend fill and layers inside pillow top
  • Cooling gel foam layer
  • Cooling memory foam layer
  • Motion isolating bio-foam layers
  • Pocketed coil suspension with edge support
  • 120 night trial, 15 year warranty, free shipping

There are hundreds of online bedding options. It’s actually pretty rare that you will find a pillowtop mattress with multiple layers of foam and a pocketed coil system in it that can be vacuum packaged and rolled up.

Good Morning, who owns the Logan and Cove Mattress brand, figured out a way to do it.

This makes ordering, shipping, and receiving your mattress very easy. And considering the mattress is made using fairly firm firm to supply really solid edge support, it was likely a bit difficult to figure out how to reduce the mattress in size.

Most “bed in a box” mattress options are really just slabs of foam that don’t take into account sitting on the edge of your mattress. Simple things like getting in and out of bed, putting your shoes on, or just lounging can be a real problem for many mattress designs. 

The Logan and Cove Mattress is specifically designed to provide optimal support all the the way to edge at all sides.

Marc is lying on his back of The Logan And Cove mattress to illustrate good back support and even weight distribution.

Because the encased pocketed coil system runs to the edge of the mattress, you get excellent support regardless of your body type and weight. Slightly firmer pocketed boils are used in the edge zone, and in body support areas, they are a little bit more yielding and cushier.

Logan And Cove Mattress Review by a 25 year veteran mattress manufacturer. Why did I rate it so highly as a best mattress in Canada option?

When on your side, you’ll feel less pressure at shoulders and hips, key areas where excessively firmer ingredients are often not calibrated properly.

You’ll notice in the video that I don’t really sink very much, even on the edge, and the mattress feels inviting, lofty, and super comfy.

The mattress features integrated layers of “bio-foam” made using soy based components to minimize the amount of VOC (petroleum distillates) foam in the mattress.

There are several layers of memory/gel foam material, designed with “adaptive air channels” to passively ventilate hot air away from the bed.

Overall, for the money, Logan and Cove Luxury Hybrid Pillow Top Mattress is a great opportunity to own a luxury bed at half or even a third of the cost of comparable brands.
