Why Perfectly Snug is the Best Sleep Cooling System
Perfectly Snug vs. Eight Sleep
Compare the Smart Topper to the Pod Pro
The Smart Topper’s specially designed fans create active airflow beneath and around your body to keep you and your bed cool and dry. Your sheets will feel like they're fresh out of the dryer - all night!
The Pod Pro circulates water in your bed, which can create mold and mildew. Not to mention, it’s bound to leak.
The Smart Topper is clutter free with no control units or hoses.
The Pod Pro has a bulky control unit with hoses that connect to your bed creating extra clutter.
The Smart Topper keeps you cool AND dry. Air automatically circulates underneath and around your body as well as removes moisture. Stay cool and sweat-free all night long.
Our bodies produce sweat and moisture while we sleep. A water-based solution like the Pod Pro does not remove moisture from your bed and can cause condensation.
Perfectly Snug’s Smart Topper cools without creating heat, so there is no extra generation of heat being expelled into your bedroom.
The Pod Pro's Hub uses a large amount of power to cool the water inside of it. This leads to the Hub expelling a large amount of heat into your bedroom causing your room temperature to rise significantly.
The Smart Topper is maintenance free!
The Pod Pro’s water-based system requires regular refilling with distilled water and a chemical cleaning agent like hydrogen peroxide.
With the Smart Topper, simply lay it on top of your mattress, plug into a wall outlet, and you’re ready to sleep cool!
The Pod Pro set up is tedious, not to mention filling the bulky control unit with water and adding a solution to keep it fresh.

I have tried the Chilipad and never liked how I could feel the tubing beneath me, but the Perfectly Snug topper is the right amount of firm and plush.
I have used the water ones (too much maintenance), Sleep Number Dual Temp (annoying tubes on the side of the bed), and Bed Jet (the better of the rest), and found Perfectly Snug to be the best in its class.
We've tried the popular Bedjet product. It really doesn't cool my back which is the biggest problem for me. The Smart Topper however cools the back nicely.

The Smart Topper uses active airflow underneath your body to keep you and your bed cool and dry. This cool air flow under your body, prevents heat build up where you lay and carries away excess humidity reducing night sweating.
Dual Zone Temperature Control
Dual zone controls allow for you and your partner to set personalized temperature settings on each side of the bed. No more fighting over the thermostat!
The gentle cooling airflow underneath and around your body keeps you cool and dry throughout the night.
The sensors in the Smart Topper monitor your body temperature to detect when your body temperature has risen or fallen below your set temperature. When it detects the temperature change, it will automatically adjust cooling and heating throughout the night.
Schedule Your Sleep
Your sleep temperature changes throughout the night. Schedule your sleep temperature preferences so you can fall asleep quickly, sleep soundly, and wake up naturally.
A burst of cooling or warming is perfect for rapid relief. Simply hold down the up or down button for an instant burst of warming or cooling.
Hate getting into bed with icy cold feet? Turn on the foot heater and say goodbye to icy cold feet. Climb into a cozy warm bed with heating concentrated at the bottom of your bed.
What Sleep Reviewers Have To Say
If you’re concerned about the price, I get it. After using the Smart Topper for a couple of months, I’m now in a place where I can’t imagine not having one on my bed. If this review sample eventually dies, I’ll become a retail customer — that’s how much I love using the Perfectly Snug Smart Topper.

Bottom line… it is very effective at regulating the temperature of your bed over a sustained period of time.
Is the Perfectly Snug Smart Topper better than the Chillipad? Yes, The Smart Topper is better than the Chillipad. This is because the Chillipad features a bulkier, remote-controlled design, while The Smart Topper comes in the form of a mattress topper and is app-controlled.
Is the Perfectly Snug Smart Topper better than the BedJet? Yes, similarly to the Chillipad, the BedJet has a bulky design that isn’t as hidden or minimal as The Smart Topper. Plus, this mattress topper is also remote-controlled, rather than app-controlled.
Is the Perfectly Snug Smart Topper good for partners? Yes, this mattress topper is perfect for partners who have different preferences when it comes to the temperature of their sleeping environment. This is because of the dual-zone climate control feature, where each side can be set to different temperatures.
—Macie Maislin, Sleep Product Tester at Sleep Authorities
There are all kinds of products out there right now that claim to keep you cool while you sleep but the Perfectly Snug Topper does it in the simplest way by circulating fresh air under your sheets. With this topper you no longer have to wake up sweaty and I found myself switching positions a lot less frequently at night. While it is a big investment, it is a solution that will keep you at an optimal temperature in a way no other technology on the market can.

The cover of the Smart Topper can be washed. Learn more about washing details here.
Yes, the Smart Topper will automatically turn off. You can also set the on and off times with scheduled preferences in the app.
There are no safety issues if the Smart Topper gets wet. If it does get wet, it should be aired-out to dry to avoid developing mildew or mold.
The Smart Topper is nearly silent when cooling is at a low level. At 50% level of cooling it’s equivalent to a forced air household heating noise. At full cooling, it sounds similar to a stand-alone fan running in the room. The level of cooling selected will determine how loud the fans will run. If you're sensitive to sound, there is a quiet mode setting in the app that constrains the fans to run at a maximum of 50%.
We designed the Smart Topper to be thin enough to retain the comfort characteristics of your existing bed, however, those with a particularly soft bed will notice that the Smart Topper makes their bed somewhat firmer.

The Smart Topper cools using room-temperature air, so, the cooler the room, the more effective the cooling effects will be. The Smart Topper is effective in a room of up to 82F/28C. If the room temperature is above this, the cooling is less effective as it will be pulling in hot air.
The Smart Topper can allow you to spend less on AC, by simply adjusting the temperature setting in your home by a couple degrees. It uses very little energy averaging 20 W to cool each side of the bed - about 2 cents per night!
Please note that the Smart Topper does not replace air conditioning or heating as it does not change the temperature of the room overall.
The Smart Topper is much more than a mattress! A mattress can't actively cool or regulate your temperature. Unique features like adaptive cooling and heating, smart sensors to monitor your temperature, and scheduled sleep settings requires specially developed technology and materials.
