Logan and Cove Mattress Review
In this review of the Logan and Cove mattress, we take a look at this new hybrid mattress created by Novosbed and targeted to the Canadian market. The Logan and Cove is made in Canada and ships directly to Canadian customers, something that many US-based mattress companies don’t do, which has put these customers at a disadvantage with minimal options when choosing an online mattress.
We take a look at the Logan and Cove in this review and see how it stacks up being one of the few luxury hybrid, direct-to consumer mattress choices for sleepers living in Canada.
If live in Canada and are interested in an all foam mattresses, the Logan and Cove has a sister brand, the Douglas, that we have also reviewed that also targets the Canadian market. Both of these brands are made in Canada and source their materials from within the country as well.
This in-depth review of the Logan and Cove mattress evaluates all of the criteria we use to determine what constitutes a good mattress, which includes firmness / support, comfort, sleeping hot, and other features as outlined below. So read on to find out more about this great luxury hybrid mattress if you live in Canada and need a new bed! Review [last-modifed]
Construction and Materials
The Logan and Cove mattress comes in one firmness option, also known as a universal comfort mattress, coming in at 14″ and comprised of the following 5 layers:
- 2″ Pillow Top Comfort Layer: This layer is the Muleva Silk Fill 2″ pillow top, which imparts a smooth and silky feel to the mattress and provides a soft, comfortable sleeping surface.
- 1″ Comfort & Cooling Layer – This layer is 1″ of EcoLuxe Cooling Gel Visco Foam, which is designed to provide dissipate heat and provide cooling to the mattress
- 1″ Response Layer: This layer is 1″ of contouring Eco Foam, which helps provide responsive comfort and support for the body during sleep, as well as bounce and responsiveness similar to latex.
- 2″ Transition Layer – This layer is made up of 2″ of high density bio foam that is designed to provide cushioned support and provides a transition layer between the top comfort layers and the lower support layer.
- 8″ Support Layer – This layer is 8″ of individually wrapped coils with zoned support, that provides support for the body where it needs it most as well as deep compression support for the body during sleep. The coils help with cooling by promoting airflow within the mattress, as well as bounce and responsiveness from the spring coils. Wrapped around the coils is a thick layer of foam which provides edge support for the mattress.
The cover of the Logan & Cove mattress is made of the company’s Natural Eucalyptus Fabric composed of polyester, spandex, and Tencel. This eco-friendly materialis and soft breathable and draws moisture away so you have a cool, dry sleeping surface.
Firmness & Support
As mentioned, the Logan and Cove is a universal comfort mattress that comes in one size, which we rate at around a 7 out of 10 (10 being the firmest). Firmness is highly subjective, however, depending on how much you weigh – for example, both myself and Kaye will often each have a different firmness rating for the same bed, due to how much I weigh compared to her.
We test firmness by actually lying and sleeping on the mattresses we review, not just pushing down with our hands or using silly bowling balls or pressure maps or things that aren’t how people actually sleep. Something we have noticed other review sites doing, which to us as sleepers ourselves, really makes no sense to include on a review!
When we slept on the Logan and Cove mattress, we felt is to be a little on the firmer side, which is something we often feel with hybrid mattresses. The pocketed coil spring layer is excellent for providing support, but tends to make the mattress feel on the firmer side.
I tend to press through the top comfort layers and feel more of the support layers in most mattresses, due to my heavier weight. The denser coil layer therefore comes in to play more than the upper comfort layers, and I feel that firm layer more than the softer top layers.
In terms of support, this mattress does an excellent job of providing support, especially for heavier sleepers. Being a heavier sleeper, I often don’t get the support needed for my weight, and often will sink down into thinner beds. Not so with the 14″ Logan and Cove, which has excellent support.
Back sleepers and stomach sleepers will find the Logan and Cove great for sleeping, as it is firm enough to provide support and comfort for those sleeping styles without being too soft and causing excessive sinkage.
Since Kaye and myself are primarily side sleepers, we like mattresses that provide enough give in the top comfort layer to support our shoulders and hips, while also having the firmness if we switch to our stomachs and backs. The Logan and Cove is also good for side sleepers, but isn’t as cushy or soft compared to memory foam mattresses, which we often find is the case with hybrid coil beds.
If you like the feel of “sleeping on top of” vs “sleeping down in” your mattress, then the Logan and Cove is a good choice. We personally are fans of memory foam for the feeling of hug and contour that it provides, and the Logan & Cove, while on the firmer end of the spectrum, still provides good comfort with the soft pillow top and comfort layers.
You certainly won’t feel “trapped in foam” like many all foam beds, so if that is a concern, then this bed will certainly reward you.
The combination of foam layers and pillow top provide a soft upper comfort section that provides good body hug along with the responsiveness and bounce from the pocketed coil support layer, without causing too much sinkage.
As mentioned, Kaye and I like the feel of memory foam mattresses, as the provide the comfort and support that we need individually as well as a couple. The Logan and Cove helps provide a “best of both world” feel by giving you a comfortable sleeping bed with the firmer support needed for heavier sleepers like myself as well as couples who like more response and bounce in their mattress.
Often we are at odds when sleeping on many mattresses, as what one of us likes the other less so. The Logan and Cove does a good job at providing a bed that meets both of our needs, with that classic memory foam feel of body hug and contour, along side the bounce and support of coils.
We make a big point to focus on mattresses sleeping cool especially if you share a bed with a partner, and if you are like us – live in a climate like Texas that gets hot during the summer (and sometimes the winter). Given that this is a Canada focused mattress, this may not be such a concern, but still, you don’t want to wake up sweaty and throwing off your sheets in the middle of the night.
The Logan and Cove mattress sleeps rather cool due to hybrid design as well as the materials used in the construction of the bed, in particular the gel foam layer and the Eucalyptus fiber material in the cover, which together do a good job at preventing heat buildup along with the increased airflow from the pocketed coils.
Thankfully, compared to all-foam mattresses, which are known for sleeping hot and trapping heat, hybrid beds generally sleep cooler and the Logan & Cove mattress is no exception.
A result of the design and use of the gel cooling material and breathable cover in this mattress is that we did not get the sticky sweaty feeling that we often get with some other mattresses. This is a big plus for us, and we give the Logan and Cove high marks here.
Sinkage & Motion Transfer
One of our pet peeves as a couple testing mattresses is feeling a mattress that has too much sinkage and motion transfer which causes quite a few problems for us when sharing a bed. Memory foam beds as a rule tend to have more sinkage, while innerspring coil beds tend to have more motion transfer.
In general, sinkage and motion transfer is weight dependent – with my heavier weight (230lbs) causing me to often sink down into some mattresses and cause motion when moving around compared to Kaye, who weighs half of what I do.
Often when I lay on a mattress my weight will cause me to sink down into the bed, and when Kaye lies next to me she “rolls into” me. This is primarily with all foam beds that have excess sinkage, and results in us retreating to the edges of the bed away from each other, which doesn’t do much for intimacy or cuddling at night.
The Logan and Cove, with its multi-layer design and pocketed coil support layer, does a good job at preventing sinkage to a good degree, and definitely did not cause us any issues with rolling into each other or sinking down too much.
I did compress through the comfort layers and come to rest on the foam coil layer some when sitting upright on the bed, but less so when my weight was distributed while sleeping.
Motion transfer was a little more than all foam beds, due to the hybrid construction. This is to be expected due to the mattress design, which because of the springs in the bed, causes more movement than a memory foam mattress. It wasn’t too bad, but noticeable.
We felt each other move around and get up a little bit during the night, as my heavier weight would move the mattress to a small degree when I got up to go to the bathroom in the night, but not that much.
As far as edge support, when I slept closer to the edge of the bed, I did not compress the edges AT ALL, due to the edge support layer of foam around the coil layer. Thus, edge support is excellent with the Logan and Cove, and something that we like to see. High marks in this area, as not many mattresses use these edge support layers, which really work – especially for heavier sleepers such as myself.
Smell / Off-Gassing
In terms of smell or off-gassing, the Logan and Cove gets high marks for not having much of a smell upon opening the package. Due to it being a hybrid bed and not all foam, this was to be expected and did not let us down.
Most foam mattresses experience a degree of off-gassing and odor from being compressed and packaged in plastic for shipping. Thankfully, we did not have to let this mattress off-gas before sleeping on it, compared to many other mattresses.

We found the medium-firm version great for all sleeping styles, but possibly better for back sleeping or stomach sleeping as it is on the firmer side of the spectrum.
The Logan and Cove is very supportive for heavier sleepers, and does a great job at providing support and comfort for all individuals as well as couples. The bounce and responsiveness also is great for intimacy between couples as well (sex!)
There was a little motion transfer due to the hybrid coil design, but it wasn’t too much to make it disruptive during sleep for couples. There was minimal sinkage when sitting up or lying down, even with my heavier weight, and the Logan and Cove has excellent edge support for via the use of the edge support layer around the pocketed coil support layer.
The Logan and Cove mattress sleeps cool as well due to the gel foam top layer and Eucalyptus fiber cover, which is an attractive feature especially if you sleep as a couple and don’t like waking up sweaty or sticky!
All in all, we feel the Logan and Cove is a great all foam mattress for those looking for this type of bed and living in Canada, especially given its attractive price range and as one of the few hybrid mattresses available directly to Canadians.
