The 10 Best Hybrid Mattresses

The 10 Best Hybrid Mattresses

Have you ever heard of a hybrid mattress? The word hybrid can conjure images of supernatural beings such as Klaus Mikaelson (from The Vampire Diaries) or Renesmee (from The Twilight Saga). And, like these fictional characters, a hybrid mattress combines the best aspects of two things — in the case of a hybrid mattress, those things are a memory foam mattress and an innerspring mattress. Finding the best hybrid mattress for your needs can be a challenge, but we’re here to help.

Memory foam is extremely comfortable due to the foam’s inherent body-molding properties, while an innerspring mattress allows airflow through the mattress and that satisfying bounce when you plop into bed. Memory foam mattresses are known to trap heat more than innerspring mattresses, and many people find memory foam mattress more comfortable than their springed counterparts. 

Combining the best of memory foam and innerspring mattresses is what the hybrid mattress was created to do. If you’re looking for a new mattress and want one that will be comfortable while keeping you cool throughout the night, read on! We combed through dozens of hybrid mattress to find the best, so you won’t have to. Below are the 10 best hybrid mattresses that we found in our search.

1. DreamCloud’s Luxury Hybrid Mattress

DreamCloud’s Luxury Hybrid Mattress

Who better to buy a mattress from than a company called DreamCloud? If you’re looking for the best hybrid mattress — one that’s high quality and long lasting — look no further than the Luxury Hybrid Mattress by DreamCloud. Whether you’re a side sleeper, back sleeper, or stomach sleeper, this mattress will provide you with comfort throughout the night. 

This hybrid mattress provides eight layers of comfort between your body and the box spring, platform, or floor (depending on your bed setup). The mattress’s cover is made from a blend of cashmere and polyester that provides the softness and breathability needed for you to get restorative sleep. 

The second layer is gel-infused memory foam designed to ensure you don’t overheat while you’re sleeping. The third layer may be where the “cloud” part of the DreamCloud name is derived, as this layer is a soft, quilted memory foam specially designed by this company to feel like you’re lying on a cloud.

The quilted memory foam layer is supported by a natural latex layer that provides bounce to the mattress. The next two layers are memory foam of varying density, to support the layers above while continuing to mold to your body’s unique shape.

Layer seven is what makes this mattress a hybrid — five zones of micro coils surrounded by foam give this bed the characteristic bounce and support of spring mattresses. All these layers rest on a base of high-density memory foam. 

You get 15 inches of sleeping comfort with the DreamCloud Luxury Hybrid Mattress. The firmness of this mattress is rated at 6.5 out of 10, which is the firmness typically see in the mattresses used in luxury hotels.

If you’ve never tried sleeping on a hybrid mattress, take advantage of the 365-night sleep trial provided with every purchase of DreamCloud mattresses. Rest assured, DreamCloud guarantees the workmanship of their mattresses for as long as you sleep on this luxury hybrid.

2. Helix Mattresses

Helix Mattresses

Whether you’re a side sleeper or a back-and-stomach sleeper, Helix has a hybrid mattress that will give you the best sleep of your life. Helix makes choosing the perfect mattress for you and/or your partner easy — just fill out an online survey that asks your preferred sleeping position and mattress feel, and if you suffer from back pain. Helix then analyzes your answers and presents you with the mattress that’s best suited to give you a great night’s sleep. 

Now, you may be thinking that a customized mattress feel may be great for one person, but you sleep with a partner. Worry not. Helix offers a Dual Balance and a Dual Extra option, both of which are designed to have a softer feel on one side and a firmer feel on the other. 

If you’re like me, you already know what you want in a mattress. If this sounds like you, skip the survey and go directly to the mattress of your choosing. Choose between a soft, medium, and firm feel, whether you sleep on your side or on your back and stomach. A mattress with a soft feel lets your body sink into the mattress; a medium feel has a slight amount of sink with a solid base; and firm feel has no give. 

Now, let’s look at the mattress itself. Four foam and coil layers are used to create Helix mattresses. Helix manufactures its own unique blend of memory foam for the top layer to give you the soft, medium, or firm feel you desire. A transition layer of foam is placed underneath the top layer for support before reaching the body-molding third layer of wrapped coils. The mattress is reinforced by a base layer composed of DuraDense (high-density) foam. And wrapped around it all is a Soft Touch Design covering that allows airflow and wicks moisture away from the body.

As comfortable as memory foam tends to be, getting out of these mattresses can be difficult due to collapsing edges. Helix makes their hybrid and memory foam mattresses with a reinforced edge that offers best-in-class edge support.

3. The Casper Mattress

The Casper Mattress

While Casper may bring to mind the lovable fictional ghost from childhood that adventured at night, the Casper Mattress helps you get a restful night’s sleep so you can have your adventures during the day. 

The Casper Mattress is made with open-cell memory foam that doesn’t trap heat like closed-cell memory foam does. Two layers of memory foam top this mattress. They’re followed by a zoned-support layer that’s designed to provide optimal comfort to your shoulders, torso, and lower body. A slightly more firm memory foam is used under the hip region to ensure your spine is properly supported. 

The spring layer is located under the three foam layers, allowing air to flow through the bed to keep you cool throughout the night. The hybrid mattress models have reinforced perimeters so you can gracefully get out of bed in the morning — or at least not spill out of the bed and onto the floor. 

The Casper Mattress is only 12 inches in height, making it especially useful for those who have a tall bed frame and box spring. The memory foams used in this mattress are CertiPUR-US® certified, which means the foam is made without atmosphere-destroying chemicals.

4. Alexander Signature Hybrid

Alexander Signature Hybrid

If I could rename this mattress, I’d call it Alexander the Great, because of its ability to make dreams happen. 

Five layers are used to construct this marvel of the bedroom. The first layer uses four pounds of gel-infused memory foam, which is known to keep sleepers cool and dry better than regular memory foam.

The second layer has copper-infused memory foam called TitanChill Endurance Foam®, which aids in moving heat away from your body. That’s followed by a support layer of foam, which sits atop a layer of 8-inch tall coil springs, which is the component that makes this mattress a hybrid. Finally, a one-inch base layer of foam provides extra support. 

These five layers are wrapped in Thermic Phase Change Cooling fabric created by Nest Bedding. If you’re paying attention, you may have noticed that this bed is designed and built to keep you and your partner cool and comfortable all night long. 

The medium firmness of this mattress is rated at a 6/10. Nest Bedding uses a reverse firmness scale compared to other mattress companies, which means this mattress will feel more like a 7/10 in firmness. Other firmness options are available to choose from, including a split firmness option in case you and your partner prefer different firmness levels.

  • Price: $1,299.00 (Queen)

5. Brooklyn Signature

Brooklyn Signature

The #1 selling mattress by Brooklyn Bedding is the Brooklyn Signature hybrid mattress. Released in 2018, customers can’t stop saying enough good things about this hybrid. 

Using TitanFlex™ foam, Brooklyn Bedding has created a mattress that’s both durable and responsive to changing body positions. TitanFlex foam has the pressure-molding qualities of memory foam with the responsiveness of latex. That combination, as well as the mattress’s rave reviews, helped bring it to #5 on our list of the best hybrid mattresses on the market today.

The 2 inches of TitanFlex foam that crown the mattress are followed by a 2-inch layer of Energex™ foam. Just what is Energex foam, you ask? Energex foam is Brooklyn Bedding’s version of high-density foam and, like certain other high-density foams, it’s great for transitioning between different firmness levels.

Underneath the transitional high-density foam is a layer of 952 individually encased coil springs. The springs are supported by another 1-inch layer of high-density foam for a solid base.

Choose the soft firmness option if you tend to sleep on your side, or medium if you rotate throughout the night from side to stomach or back sleeping. The firm option would be an ideal choice for those who sleep primarily on their stomach or back.

If, for whatever reason, this mattress sinks at any place more than one inch in 10 years from the time of your purchase, Brooklyn Bedding will replace the mattress free of charge.

6. The WinkBed

The WinkBed

Lumbago sufferers take heart! The WinkBed may just be the remedy to your ailments. The WinkBed is unique in offering a mattress with a 3-Step Back-Relief System™.

The Euro-pillow top, combined with the Tencel© cover that wraps this mattress, is designed to relieve pressure on high-stress areas of your body. The Euro-pillow top is gel-infused, so it also aids in moving heat away from your body.

The Micro Air-Springs™ layer ensures that your lumbar region has extra support, and it also provides extra airflow through the mattress while you’re sleeping. A high-density foam layer is followed by a second layer of springs, which account for differing pressure exerted by various regions of your body. Yes, you read that right — there are two layers of springs that both provide support and move heat throughout the night. 

It should come as no surprise with two layers of coils to prevent motion transfer that you likely won’t be woken up by your partner getting into or out of bed. And the WinkBed has been called the best mattress for hot sleepers and for heavier individuals. 

This hybrid mattress is rated an 8/10 in firmness and is constructed with comfort and durability in mind. Believe it or not, this mattress is shipped to you in a box — and if you’re not happy with it in the first 120-nights, simply call WinkBeds for a full refund.

7. The New Purple® Mattress

The New Purple® Mattress

You may wonder why this mattress company is named after the color purple. When looking at the outside of their mattresses there’s nothing to hint at the origin of the company’s name. But rip open one of the mattresses and you’ll find the Purple® Smart Comfort Grid™ — which is, in fact, purple.

This purple grid is made of Hyper-Elastic Polymer™, which feels like soft rubber and is able to collapse in high-pressure areas and remain resilient in low-pressure areas. The ability of this material to conform to differing pressures makes this mattress ideal for any position you sleep in. This material allows for airflow, relieves pressure points, and provides superior motion isolation. 

Combine the Smart Comfort Grid layer with coils that sit beneath it, and you have a hybrid mattress that’s breathable, body-conforming, and responsive. The purple grid is such an innovation in the mattress world that there are over 30 patents for this technology. 

One of the most stressful parts of purchasing a new mattress is figuring out what to do with your old mattress. Don’t stress it — Purple will deliver and set up your new Purple mattress and haul away your old one if you live in the contiguous United States (sorry, Hawaii and Alaska). Purple also provides a 100-night sleep trial and a 10-year limited warranty.

8. GhostBed Flex Mattress

GhostBed Flex Mattress

GhostBed may initially sounds ominous, but don’t let the name scare you away. The GhostBed Flex Mattress is a hybrid worth your serious consideration, because it combines the best of a memory foam mattress and the best of a traditional innerspring all in one place.

Seven layers of gel memory foam, high-density foam, and springs are combined into a mattress that excels in comfort and support. 

The GhostBed Flex Mattress is constructed to feel on the softer side of the firmness rating, at a 5.5/10. Ghost Ice Fabric is combined with a 1-inch fiber layer to increase the flow of air — with the goal of keeping you cool. Three layers of gel memory foam are supported by individually wrapped coil springs that are over 8 inches tall, as well as a high-density foam base.

And the 2 rows of springs that edge the mattress are reinforced for firmer support while getting in and out of bed, as well as sitting on the side.The memory foam is made using eco-friendly processes and is certified CertiPUR-US.

GhostBed offers a sleep trial period so you can test out the mattress for yourself. You will have to sleep on the mattress for at least 30 nights (or at least keep it in your house that long). If you aren’t  happy with the bed, that’s fine, but GhostBed does not accept returns without a month sleep trial. This ensures you’ve given your body enough time to adjust to the new mattress (or not).

If you’re not satisfied with the mattress after 30 days, and before day 101, simply call GhostBeds for a full refund. When ordering this mattress online you will receive the product within five days. GhostBeds are completely manufactured in the United States, which ultimately allows for faster shipping times

9. Bear Hybrid

Bear Hybrid

Grizzly bears can hibernate for seven months out of the year, and with a mattress like the Bear Hybrid, you just might want to as well! The cover of this hybrid mattress is made with Celliant® infrared yarn technology, which converts body heat into infrared light and brings oxygen to the cells of your body to decrease recovery time from athletic activities and increase your overall sense of well-being. 

So far, five clinical studies have looked at Celliant and found beneficial effects on sleep and the body. The FDA has determined that products made with Celliant are medical devices and classifies them as general wellness products.

Underneath the Celliant fiber mattress top is a gel memory foam layer and two additional layers of memory foam. The innerspring layer is just beneath the three memory foam layers and is capable of moving heat away from the body more than 25% better than memory foam. Extra-strong spring coils are placed around the perimeter of the mattress for enhanced edge support. 

Wisconsin is notable as the home of the Green Bay Packers and the Bear Mattress company.  The Bear Mattress company was founded by a fitness enthusiast, and this mattress was built with athletes in mind. This is why Celliant® fiber is incorporated into Bear mattresses. Whether you’re an athlete or just a weekend gym warrior, you may want to do yourself a favor and try the Bear Hybrid for a 100-night sleep trial.

10. The Saatva Classic Mattress

The Saatva Classic Mattress

Who wouldn’t want to purchase from a company that utilizes environmentally friendly and sustainable practices? Saatva uses 100% organic cotton and CertiPUR-US certified memory foam in their mattresses. In 2018, Saatva received an award from Business Intel for the most sustainable product of the year.

The organic cotton covering of this mattress is treated with Saatva’s Guardin® botanical antimicrobial treatment to ensure you’re not sharing your mattress with bacteria and dust mites. A memory foam layer helps support your body and relieve back pain by absorbing pressure exerted by specific regions of your body. 

Like our #6 ranked hybrid mattress, the Saatva Classic Mattress is constructed with two levels of spring support — only Saatva uses recycled steel to make their springs. Under the memory foam layer, 416 individually wrapped mini coils provide responsive cushioning of your body while you’re lying on the mattress. Under those coils is a base of 884 hardened steel springs, providing a combination of stability and bounce for the layers above. The steel springs are hardened three times so this mattress won’t sag over time like standard spring mattresses typically do.

Saatva eliminates the things that cause mattress prices to become inflated (such as commissioned salesman and retail store markups). Streamlining the process and selling directly to the customer allows them to create an affordable mattress that you purchase online and have delivered to your home. 

With Saatva, you don’t just get one of the best hybrid mattresses on the market. In addition, you can feel good about buying from a company that looks out for our children’s future — and at the very least, you can brag about your eco-consciousness to your friends and neighbors.
