Nap pods have become the envy of the corporate world; they have risen in popularity and studies have shown that employee productivity increases when nap pods are an option in the office. Today I lived my corporate fantasy of napping at work – in the Casper nap pod on the Stampede Midway.

Casper’s clever marketing tactic of offering free naps to Stampede-goers proves why their one and only mattress is a crowd-pleaser for side-sleepers, back-sleepers, stomach-sleepers and those who toss and turn throughout the night.

Natalia Lemus, Casper representative, shared that the company did intensive research on the types of foam and the way people sleep, to create their one perfect mattress. “The top layer is made with latex, a soft, bouncy fabric that is flexible for people to move around on. The middle layer has memory foam for support, and the bottom layer has poly-foam with an adaptive layer that unites the firmest layer with the softest to create the comfortable feel,” Lemus explained.

Sounding too good to be true, I had to try it out and take a nap! The welcoming feel of the nap pods immediately made me feel at home.The automatic curtain came down, the lights turned off and I enjoyed the comfort of the mattress. I tried it out on my side and back and agree that Casper’s research was on point.

To top it all off, there was a phone charging station to leave your phone while you rest – and it was designed in the exact size of the Casper box that the mattress comes in! Each mattress is shipped online and arrives at your front door conveniently packaged in a box – there is no need for extension cords, hoping your mattress doesn’t fly off your vehicle while you drive from the store to your house on Deerfoot Trail!

Another great reason to buy a Casper mattress is their 100-night trial period. At the end of the trial, if you choose not to go with the mattress for any reason, you will receive a full refund and the mattress will be donated to a local charity. Casper operates throughout North America and just recently has added Germany, Austria and Switzerland to their distribution. So whichever city or country you’re in, Casper will source a charity in that region for the mattress to find a new home.
