As of September 2019, PangeaBed’s website and social media pages are no longer active.
But this brand’s Talalay copper-infused latex mattress was a good option for those who’ve been underwhelmed with other bed-in-a-box options.

Features of a PangeaBed mattress
What is it made of?
The PangeaBed mattress is made of three distinct layers of foam and copper-infused Talalay latex — all wrapped up under a soft foam quilted cover. First is a base support foam layer. On top of that is a comfortable foam layer designed to reduce heat retention and pressure points. The topmost layer is 100% copper-infused Talalay latex with cooling and antibacterial properties.
Do you need a box spring?
No, you don’t need a box spring, but you do need to make sure your PangeaBed is on a supportive surface. A box spring, platform foundation, adjustable base or even the floor will work just fine for your new bed.
How many years does a PangeaBed mattress last?
Thanks to its top layer of Talalay latex, our research shows that the PangeaBed mattress may last longer than traditional all-foam mattresses, which average around six or seven years. PangeaBed mattresses come with a 10-year warranty.
Can I rotate or flip the PangeaBed mattress?
You shouldn’t flip your PangeaBed mattress, since its supportive base layer always needs to be at the bottom, with the copper-infused layer on top.
However, if you’re a single sleeper in a two-person bed, you can rotate your mattress if you’d like. The queen mattress weighs 71 pounds, so get help if you need it.
PangeaBed sizing guide
The PangeaBed comes in six sizes:
|Twin||Twin XL||Full||Queen||King||California King|
|39” x 75” x 10.5”||39” x 80” x 10.5||54” x 75” x 10.5”||60” x 80” x 10.5”||76” x 80” x 10.5||72” x 84” x 10.5”|
Shipping and delivery
Can I get free delivery?
Yes, all mattresses ship for free within the continental US within five business days. Unfortunately, PangeaBed doesn’t offer delivery to residents of Alaska or Hawaii.
Does PangeaBed offer a trial period?
Yes, you’ll have 100 nights to try out your new mattress to make sure it’s the right one for you. You also get a 60-night trial with any pillows and a 30-night trial on its copper mattress topper. Although the company suggests you try your new bed for at least 30 nights before making a decision, you can start a return at any point during the trial period.
- Note: There is a limit of returns on one mattress, one pillow and one topper trial period per household. So if you’re thinking of ordering multiples, you might want to test one out first.
What’s PangeaBed’s return policy?
If you don’t absolutely love your mattress, pillow or mattress topper for any reason during the trial window, PangeaBed works with you to have your items donated to a local charitable organization.
There are a few exceptions to this policy:
- Blade or knife cuts in the mattress void both the mattress warranty and the 100-night sleep trial return policy.
- The sleep trial return policy only applies to customers living in the continental US.
- If you order your PangeaBed through a third-party site like Amazon, it won’t qualify for the trial period. You’ll follow the return policy set by the seller.
Are PangeaBed returns free?
Yes! You won’t pay a dime to make a return.
How do I return items to PangeaBed?
If your items are still within the trial period, simply email PangeaBed customer service at email@example.com to start the process.
For mattress returns, PangeaBed works with you to arrange a pickup by a local charity. For pillows and mattress toppers, you’ll need to drop them off yourself. To get your refund, get a donation receipt from the charity organization made out to Pangea Bed LLC.
Shipping is always free — whether you buy a mattress or a pillow.
How can I track my order?
Once you place your order, PangeaBed sends you a UPS tracking number to track your order online. Delivery usually takes between one and five business days, depending on where you live.
What sets this brand apart?
PangeaBed has two main claims to fame — its copper-infused technology and special Talalay latex material. According to its site, copper not only helps to keep your body cool while you sleep, but it can also act as a built-in antibacterial for a cleaner, fresher sleep. Unlike other types of latex used in mattresses like Dunlop, Talalay features an open-cell structure so air can pass through.

Is PangeaBed better than ZenHaven?
If you’re in the market for a natural Talalay latex mattress, PangeaBed and Zenhaven might be your top picks. Both brands offer unique latex mattresses that claim to be cool, supportive, eco-friendly and durable. The Zenhaven mattress by Saavta is an all-latex mattress, while the PangeaBed also contains two foam layers. However, you’ll pay significantly more for a Zenhaven bed, so keep your budget in mind when shopping.
