Whenever I hear the word hybrid, I am always reminded of the Underworld movies. Bred to contain the best qualities of both the lycans and the vampires, hybrids are the ultimate supernatural killing machine. Claws and fangs aside, hybrid mattresses act in much the same way. The lovechild of innerspring and foam mattresses, no other bed has come close to offering what the hybrid mattress can give. Well.. Not yet, anyway.

Cooling with a familiar springy bounce that only coils can give, innerspring mattresses have long dominated the mattress scene and are considered to be the dons of the mattress world. Come 1980, foam mattresses began gaining popularity as people started to realize that sleeping on firmer, more body contouring mattresses could massively help relieve pressure and also help with spinal alignment. Today, we have a plethora of mattress types to choose from – hybrids, latex, innerspring, memory foam, you name it.

But for now, hybrid mattresses remain at the top of the food chain and these our 5 best hybrids for the year 2021.

There are many reasons why this is Idle Sleep’s bestselling mattress and one of them is that you have the option to customize it based on your sleeping style and preference.

Amerisleep AS5

Amerisleep AS5

If Goldilocks’ story were to namedrop mattresses, Amerisleep would be it. And just to take things a step further, they added 2 more beds into the mix. AS5 is the fifth and the softest mattress out of Amerisleep’s very impressive lineup.

For those of us who want a bed that makes us feel as though we are being softly cocooned, then look no further. The AS5 was made for all the cuddlebugs out there (doesn’t matter if you’re single). Make no mistake though, while inherently soft, the AS5 Hybrid’s supportive coil base offers targeted back support to keep your spine in perfect alignment thanks to its Active Flex comfort layer. That said, the AS5 is not advisable for heavier sleepers or stomach sleepers, as the softness may not provide enough support for the hips and the lower back.

Hot sleepers will also appreciate the AS5’s use of open-cell technology on their plant-based BioPur memory foam layers which means superior breathability and first-rate moisture wicking abilities.

You may be wondering about one thing.

Will the AS5 sag easily because it already is soft to begin with? The answer is a capital N and a capital O. Want to find out for yourself? Amerisleep offers a risk-free 100 night trial for you to see if the AS5 is ‘just right’. Porridge optional (please do not go asking Amerisleep for porridge). But warranty is 20 years if you decide to keep it and trust me, you will.

So you’re into the latest tech and all that it has to offer – how about a mattress to suit your high-tech lifestyle? Nolah has utilized proprietary technology throughout all the layers of their latest mattress offering, the Nolah Evolution 15. Even the name sounds techy.

Let’s start with the quilted Euro-top, woven through with Nolah’s own cooling ArticTex fibres, it draws excess heat away from the body. Then comes their AirFoam, infused with their award-winning AirFoamICE that works to further draw the heat away from the body while providing superior pressure relief and comfort. Their 8″ patented tri-zoned support coils give 20% more support than traditional spring systems, it also intensifies the pressure relief and accelerates the cooling properties of its top layers. The coils are also wrapped in Nolah’s own Edge Tech support foam, strengthening every edge and corner of the mattress.

The Nolah Evolution 15 has a medium firmness level making it great for all types of sleepers as well as couples with different sleeping styles. And if you haven’t yet figured what the 15 stands for, that’s 15 whopping inches, thank you very much.

Tuft and Needle Hybrid

Tuft and Needle Hybrid

Clean, simple and sleek. These are the 3 words that first come to mind upon seeing the Tuft and Needle Hybrid mattress. No bells and whistles here – just pure, unadulterated comfort.

Made for all types of sleepers, the Tuft and Needle Hybrid sits right in between a soft and firm feel with the tendency to lean towards the softer end of the spectrum. This makes it excellent for couples with individual sleeping preferences. All of Tuft and Needle’s mattresses come infused with graphite – a known thermal conductor – and their Hybrid mattress also comes with a ceramic cooling gel for extra cooling capabilities. As you may already know, temperature is one of the main causes of those sleepless nights so if you tend to wake up throughout the night feeling unseasonably hot, take a long hard look at your mattress, it may be the culprit.

What sets the Tuft and Needle Hybrid apart from all the rest, despite its seeming simplicity, is the addition of a coil transition layer. That’s right, coil on coil, baby. This 1″ transition coil is sandwiched in between the mattress’ Adaptive foam layers and is meant to offer an extra springiness in your step, I mean, that little extra somethin’ somethin’ to your sleep (and certain activities in bed that do not require sleep). The 6″ pocketed coil system though is where the main action’s at. All these come encased in a carbon infused memory foam pillow top for extra cushion and extra durability.

It’s no wonder why Tuft and Needle needs no further embellishments, they are backed by mattress giants Serta Simmons.

Tuft and Needle offer a 100 night trial and a 10 year warranty.

Why choose a Hybrid?

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, we here at Sleepline do love our hybrids (you can’t really tell, can you?). Some of us are techy types who readily embrace technology as it evolves and some of us cling staunchly to the past (i.e me) but we all agree that hybrids combine the best of both worlds – the glory of innersprings of yore and the modern comforts of memory foam and latex.

We have covered the history of innersprings here and here, should you need a bit of a background on the importance of coils.

Ultimately, the choice is yours – it is, after all, your bed.
