Sleeping Duck Pro Review

While Sleeping Duck mattresses are a bit overpriced, it comes with a 100-night trial, free shipping, among other features. 

This guide reviews the Sleeping Duck mattresses, breaking down every important feature you need to consider when purchasing Sleeping Duck.  

Sleeping Duck Pro Review

Mattresses from Sleeping Duck are hybrid mattresses with pocket springs for support and smartly constructed foams. The bed is 31 cm tall overall, making it far thicker than most boxed mattresses in a box in  Australia. 


Comfort 1

The medium firmness level Sleeping Duck Mattress provides comfortable pressure relief and has a neutral feel. It is softer than other medium options but offers a good amount of support.

In addition, this Sleeping Duck firmness level (medium-firm)  is best for side sleepers but can also be comfortable for stomach and back sleepers. However, its suitability will depend on the specific person using it.

Below, we have ranked Sleeping Duck mattresses, on a scale of one to ten, based on their firmness level: 

  • Medium Version – 5.5 out of 10
  • Firm Version – 7.5 out of 10
  • Extra-Firm Version – 8.5 Out of 10
  • Soft Version – 4.5 out of 10

Sleeping Duck bed provides outstanding back support irrespective of the level of firmness you select. Thanks to its pocket spring technology, the Sleeping Duck mattress will properly align your spine, making the bed feel supportive and steady. 

These mattresses are highly responsive to the natural motion in all firmness settings. Mild partner disturbance means a restless companion won’t be a significant issue, which means engaging in various intimate postures and sleeping arrangements.

Please keep in mind that everyone has different tolerances for multiple degrees of responsiveness; therefore, our scales should only be used as a general guideline. And remember that innerspring mattresses typically have better responsiveness than foam beds.

Build Quality



Sleeping Duck Mattress uses latex, memory foam, and coils to create its beds. In contrast to conventional mattresses, the user can adjust the firmness level by removing and replacing the foam layers within the cover. 

  • The top layer (latex foam) is designed to keep you cool and comfortable throughout your sleep. The latex’s responsiveness also aids in bounce and prevents any “stuck” sensation. 
  • The second layer (-memory foam) – This layer combines with the latex part to provide excellent pressure relief and a slightly enhanced level of contouring.
  • The middle layer (-polyfoam) – is placed beneath the latex to provide additional support and pressure alleviation. The polyfoam offers comfort and a transitioning support layer, easing the transition from the foam to the pocketed coils.
  • The bottom layer (-pocketed coils) – Coils in this layer serve as both the base for the bed and the user’s deep pressure support.



The mattress’s cover is constructed with rayon (from bamboo), a soft fabric that allows air to pass. The downside panels are built with polyester, wrapping the mattress more robustly to keep it safe.

Mattresses by Sleeping Duck come with removable covers to allow users to change firmness levels if they want to. Although the zippers of this mattress are robust, their actual track isn’t as good — you might run into a few zipping problems, such as the zippers coming off their track.

Generally, Sleeping Duck mattress covers look amazing. They take up the two-tone motif of white and grey, with a small dotted design across the cover’s top. Though the overall layout is great, it could be even better if they incorporated more flair into the cover’s composition.

Partner Disturbance

Partner Disturbance 1

The Sleeping Duck mattress has a great pressure relief mechanism, making it an excellent pick for partners. 

All the mattress’ layers are joined at the core to create a system that is incredibly responsive to your demands. The independent pocketing system joins the springs, increasing independent kinetics and lessening partner disturbance. 

Value for Money

Frequently Asked Questions

Final Thoughts

Sleeping Duck is an Australian mattress-in-a-box firm that has received several awards (mostly in 2019) and has become a well-known brand. Products from Sleeping Duck are typically more expensive and of higher quality than average.

The mattress has undergone a thorough rebranding process and is now known as SD Mach II with enhanced looks, features, and a few layer label modifications. The best part is that the bed’s comfort is unaffected by this modification, and you can now switch out the foams to obtain different degrees of firmness.
