WinkBeds is an American mattress company founded in 2015. Based in Wisconsin, the company produces mattresses and other sleep accessories sourced from domestic materials. Aside from the EcoCloud mattress, WinkBeds currently sells the flagship WinkBed hybrid and the all-foam GravityLux, which we will discuss in other articles on our website.
Sourced from sustainable materials, the WinkBeds EcoCloud is constructed with Talalay latex, pocketed coils, and an organic cotton and wool cover. It has a medium firmness level, or 5 out of 10 on the firmness scale, and measures 12.5 inches tall in total.
We’ll cover everything you need to know about the EcoCloud’s construction, materials, and how these affect the sleeping experience. Our full WinkBeds EcoCloud mattress review also goes over practical information and user reviews to help you make an informed decision about your mattress purchase.
Watch the video below to see how the EcoCloud Mattress performed when put to the test in the Sleep Foundation Lab.
At 12.5 inches tall, the WinkBeds EcoCloud has ample room for a cushioning comfort section as well as a sturdy base. Since its profile is slightly taller than the average mattress, it will require deep-pocket sheets.
A soft organic cotton and New Zealand wool cover helps wick moisture away from the sleeper and keep the surface of the mattress cool. The WinkBeds EcoCloud holds OEKO-TEX and Rainforest Alliance certifications, and the cotton is certified by the Global Organic Textiles Standard.
Measuring 4 inches in total, the comfort section of the EcoCloud is divided into two layers. Both are made of Talalay latex, which is known for its buoyant and springy feel. The latex distributes body weight to alleviate pressure build-up. Talalay latex is open-cell and naturally breathable, and the latex used in the EcoCloud has pincore holes to help boost airflow.
The 8-inch pocketed coil support core is made of individually wrapped coils. These are made of thrice-tempered recycled steel and move independently of each other to reduce motion transfer.
The coils are divided into 5 zones, with 15-gauge coils in the head and feet areas and 14.5-gauge coils in the center third. This provides firmer support under the lower back and more pressure relief in the hips and shoulders. The perimeter is also reinforced with a double layer of 16-gauge coils to prevent sagging when sitting on the edge of the bed. A thin layer of cotton provides a stable base for the coils.
The mattress has a firmness level of medium, or a 5 out of 10 on the firmness scale. This is within the range preferred by the vast majority of sleepers, albeit on the lower end. The mattress provides a balance of plushness and firmness that gently cradles sleepers while supporting areas like the lower back. It’s quite bouncy and keeps most sleepers on top of the mattress instead of sinking into it.
The WinkBeds EcoCloud is a 12.5-inch hybrid mattress with an organic cotton and wool cover, Talalay latex comfort layers, and a zoned pocketed coil support core over a cotton padding.

The WinkBeds EcoCloud is a bit more expensive than the typical hybrid, but it has an average price-point for a natural latex hybrid mattress. Natural latex is more costly to produce than memory foam, but the latex hybrid construction promises above-average durability which helps justify the price.
WinkBeds has been known to offer sales in the range of a few hundred dollars, so this is something to watch for throughout the year.

Due to its slightly plusher surface, the WinkBeds EcoCloud earns excellent ratings from most side sleepers under 230 pounds.
Side sleepers commonly experience pressure points in the hips and shoulders as a result of these heavier body areas digging into the mattress. The latex forms a loose cradle that alleviates these pressure points, while the zoned pocketed coils help promote spinal alignment by pushing back more in the lumbar area.
Side sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds should also find the mattress comfortable, with the coils providing the extra targeted support needed for heavier individuals. That said, the mattress’s medium feel may allow a little too much sink for some, which can impede proper spinal alignment.
The EcoCloud is suitable for back sleepers in all weight categories, especially those who weigh less than 130 pounds.
Back sleepers require a mattress that provides an even balance of support and pressure relief. The EcoCloud’s medium firmness and balanced feel are best suited to sleepers under 130 pounds as this group doesn’t put as much pressure on the mattress. The zoned coils help support the ever-important lumbar area and prevent sagging in the hips, promoting proper spinal alignment.
Most people find that hybrid mattresses provide more robust support for heavier individuals, and this is true of the EcoCloud as well. Those who weigh more than 130 pounds should sleep fairly comfortably, although they may experience slight sinkage in the hips due to the softer latex.
The EcoCloud is least suited to stomach sleepers, who generally find that a firmer surface does better at keeping the spine aligned.
The mattress keeps sleepers “on” and not “in” the mattress, and is sufficiently firm to promote decent spinal alignment in many stomach sleepers under 230 pounds. However, stomach sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds may experience sagging under the hips, which can contribute to back and neck pain.

The WinkBeds EcoCloud mattress is available for purchase in all 50 states. The mattress is not available outside the U.S.
The EcoCloud is sold exclusively through the WinkBeds website. However, for customers who wish to try out a WinkBeds mattress before committing to a purchase, the company has a presence in showrooms in New York, Virginia, Minnesota, Illinois, and Texas.
The EcoCloud ships free in the contiguous U.S. via UPS Ground, with a $199 fee for delivery to Alaska and Hawaii. Mattresses usually arrive within approximately two weeks of ordering.
The mattress is delivered shrink-wrapped and compressed. Setting it up is as easy as placing it on top of the foundation or bed frame and carefully removing the plastic to let it expand to its full shape.
White Glove delivery is available for $129, and old mattress removal is available for an additional $60.
WinkBeds offers a 120-night sleep trial starting on the day of delivery. After a mandatory 30-night break-in period, customers may exchange the mattress or return it for a full refund if they don’t like it. Exchanged mattresses are subject to a $49 recycling fee and come with their own 60-day trial period.
There is no need to keep the original packaging, or for the mattress to be in mint condition. To initiate the return process customers should contact WinkBeds, who will coordinate pickup. Delivery charges and old mattress fees are non-refundable. There is a maximum of one return per customer, household, or address.
Once the trial period has passed, WinkBeds offers customers an “Any Reason 50% Off Replacement Guarantee.” Under this option, customers who aren’t completely satisfied with their WinkBeds mattress can opt to exchange it for a different WinkBeds model in the same size, at 50 percent of the purchase price. Sale of the new mattress is final and the offer is limited to one per household.
WinkBeds stands by the EcoCloud mattress with a limited lifetime warranty, which is well above average for the mattress industry. The warranty is valid for the original owner of a new WinkBeds mattress through an authorized distribution channel and extends to a maximum of one replacement per mattress purchased.
WinkBeds will replace a defective mattress with a new WinkBeds mattress in the same size and model. Customers whose mattresses are deemed defective will have their return shipping charges reimbursed.
The warranty covers defects in materials and workmanship that arise under normal wear, including degradation, splits, cracks, and visible indentations deeper than 1.5 inches, unless the mattress has been used with insufficient support or has been improperly handled.
Warranty coverage does not extend to mattresses that have been misused or neglected, or which have been subjected to an accident or used in violation of instructions. Nor does the warranty cover normal increases in softness, comfort preferences, or defects caused by abuse or damage such as burns, cuts, or stains.
