Idle has created a mattress with an unique style.Idle Latex Hybrid
Unlike other flippable bed-in-the-box mattresses which have a different firmness on each side, Idle created their mattresses with the SAME firmness on both sides.
This was an idea that used to be typical for many conventional innerspring mattresses till the costs got expensive to produce them. Then mattress brands stopped selling the ones you could flip and chose the less expensive to make one-sided variations.
Thanks to Idle Sleep, the dual sided flippable mattress is back.
This unique style allows you to turn the Idle over regularly to extend the life of the mattress and prevent any drooping or indentations from taking place. This is specifically beneficial in the case of couples where one partner is bigger than the other.

Idle Hybrid Mattress SummaryIdle Latex Hybrid
The company, Idle Sleep, was founded in 2017 and is based in Colorado Springs, CO. All of the mattresses are hand-made to order in the USA.
You can try out an Idle mattress risk free in your house for a full 18 months to choose if Idle is comfortable for you. If at anytime within that trial period you choose Idle is not the right mattress for you, they will coordinate a return with you or donation and refund 100% of your purchase price. Idle’s trial is the longest in the market– about 540 nights!
How is the Idle Hybrid Mattress Constructed?
Both the Idle Hybrid and the Idle Latex Hybrid are made with Certipur certified foams which guarantees that they contain no PBDE’s, ozone depleters or TDCPP.
They are both 14″ high, 2-sided and are made with handgrips for ease in flipping over the mattresses.
They are likewise suitable for all sleepers: side, stomach, back and combo sleepers (people that rotate between positions throughout the night.)
People with back pain may find that a hybrid mattress provides them some relief since the springs will support your back while the latex or foam will give cushioning support for pressure points.
You can sleep cool on these mattresses because the fabrics that they are made with are known for their cooling qualities.
1 ″ Quilted Foam Cover— Contouring foam is woven into the upper layer which offers it softness.
1 ″ Response Foam— This layer is designed with aerated foam which offers cooling and bounce.
2 ″ Cooling Buoyancy Foam— Made without visco elastic chemicals to remain cooler than memory foam and provides better pressure relief for areas like hips and back.
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.

The cover of the Idle Hybrid is made with Thermocool which is a fabric that helps keep you cool when you’re hot and warm when you are cool.
Available with Talalay or Dunlop latex.
Cover— The natural organic cotton cover actually has a 1 inch layer of natural wool woven into it to offer comfort and additional softness.
3 ″ Gel Buoyancy Foam— 100% Natural Dunlop Latex or Talalay layers offers cooling and bounce to the mattress along with offering it more support than regular memory foam. The latex is naturally hypoallergenic and has anti-microbial qualities, too.
6 ″ Pocketed Coils— This layer has high quality steel pocketed innerspring springs that function as the core support of the mattress.
They go all the way to the edge of the mattress for optimal firmness from edge to edge.

Latex tends to sleep very cool because it is aerated and won’t trap heat the way a traditional memory foam mattress does.
Instead of using glue to keep the layers together, Idle Sleep uses button tufting which is an eco-friendly method.
How firm is the Idle?
The Idle Sleep mattresses are available in 2 firmness options: Medium and Luxury Firm.
You have the choice of deciding upon 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.
Larger people will discover the Luxury Firm more supportive.
This is a measure of how supportive the bed is around its boundary.
The coils on the Idle Sleep mattresses go right to the edge of the mattresses to offer the very best edge support whether you are resting on the edge or sleeping near it.
There is very little motion transfer even though these mattresses do have some bounce. The individually enclosed coils isolate movement better than traditional inner springs. Compared to other hybrids in the mattress-in-a-box class this one may be a great option if you sleep with a partner or an animal so your sleep won’t be impacted by their motion.
- Suitable for all sleeping styles
- Mattresses sleep cool
