Idle has created a mattress with a distinct design.Idle Grid Mattress
Unlike other flippable bed-in-the-box mattresses which have a different firmness on each side, Idle produced their mattresses with the SAME firmness on both sides.
This was a model that used to be typical for numerous conventional innerspring mattresses till the costs got too expensive to produce them. Then mattress companies stopped selling the ones you could flip and opted for the less expensive to make one-sided models.
In a bold move, Idle has actually brought back the flippable dual sided mattress.
This special design allows you to flip the Idle over periodically to prolong the life of the mattress and avoid any drooping or imprints from occurring. This is particularly helpful when it comes to couples where one partner is much heavier than the other.

How is the Idle Hybrid Mattress Constructed?
Idle has two designs that are made with Certipur certified foams which guarantees that they consist of no PBDE’s, ozone depleters or TDCPP.
Idle mattresses are 14″ high and created with carry handles attached on the sides which make it easier to rotate them.
They are also ideal for all sleepers: side, stomach, back and combination sleepers (individuals that turn between positions throughout the night.)
The hybrid mattresses are also recommended for people with back pain because the pocketed coils will give your back support while the latex or foam will cushion your pressure points.
You can sleep cool on these mattresses because the materials that they are made with are known for their cooling properties.
1 ″ Quilted Foam Cover— Contouring foam is woven into the top layer which gives it softness.
1 ″ Response Foam— This layer is designed with aerated foam which supplies cooling and bounce.
2 ″ Cooling Buoyancy Foam— Made without visco elastic chemicals to remain cooler than memory foam and provides better pressure relief for places like back and hips.
6 ″ Pocketed Coils— This layer serves as the core support of the mattress with high quality steel pocketed innerspring coils that go all the way to the edge of the mattress.

1 ″ Top— described above.
The Idle Latex Hybrid is made with 100% natural cotton, wool and natural latex which are materials that are known for their cooling qualities.Idle Grid Mattress
Latex tends to sleep extremely cool due to the fact that it is aerated and will not trap heat the way a conventional memory foam mattress does.
Rather than using glue to hold the mattress layers together, Idle Sleep uses button tufting which is a natural method.
How firm is the Idle?
The Idle Sleep mattresses are available in 2 firmness selections: Medium and Luxury Firm.
You have the option of choosing a mattress with 2 Luxury Firm sides, 2 Medium sides or Medium on one side and Luxury Firm on the other side.
The Medium is around a 6.5 out of 10, where 10 is the firmest. The Luxury Firm is around a 9 out of 10.
Heavier people will find the Luxury Firm more supportive.
This is a measure of how firm the bed is around its perimeter.
The coils on the Idle Sleep mattresses go right to the edge of the mattresses to provide the very best support whether you are resting on the edge or sleeping near it.
Although there is some bounce with the Idle, there is a minimum quantity of motion transfer. The individually enclosed coils isolate motion better than standard inner springs. Compared to other hybrids in the bed-in-a-box category this one might be a great alternative if you sleep with a significant other or a family pet so your sleep will not be impacted by their motion.
