Idle has actually created a mattress with a special design.Idle Mattress Unpacking
Unlike other dual-sided 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 a concept that used to be common for numerous conventional innerspring mattresses up until the expenses got too high to produce them. Then mattress companies stopped offering the ones you might turn and chose the cheaper to produce one-sided versions.
Thanks to Idle Sleep, the 2-sided flippable mattress is back.
This distinct design makes it possible for you to turn the Idle over regularly to lengthen the life of the mattress and prevent any drooping or imprints from taking place. This is specifically advantageous in the case of couples where one partner is larger than the other.

Idle Hybrid Mattress SummaryIdle Mattress Unpacking
All Idle mattresses are made by hand in Colorado Springs, CO ever since 2017.
Idle has a really generous sleep trial period of 18 months which is about 540 days. If at anytime within that trial duration you choose Idle is not the best mattress for you, they will coordinate a return 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 Constructed?
Both the Idle Hybrid and the Idle Latex Hybrid are made with Certipur certified foams which indicates that they consist of no PBDE’s, TDCPP or ozone depleters.
Idle mattresses are 14″ high and smartly made with carry handles attached to the sides which make it simple to handle them.
They are also excellent for all sleepers: side, stomach, back and combination sleepers (people that rotate between positions during the night.)
The hybrid mattresses are also preferred for people with back pain because the coils will give your spine support while the foam or latex will cushion your pressure points.
You can sleep cool on these mattresses because the materials that they are made out of are known for their cooling qualities.
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 stay cooler than memory foam and offers better pressure relief for places 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.
This mattress comes with a choice of either Talalay or Dunlop latex.
Cover— The 100% cotton cover actually has a 1″ layer of natural wool woven into it to supply more comfort and added softness.
3 ″ Gel Buoyancy Foam— Talalay or 100% Natural Dunlop Latex layers offers cooling and bounce to the mattress along with offering it more support than ordinary memory foam. The latex is naturally hypoallergenic and has anti-microbial properties, too.
6 ″ Pocketed Coils— This layer has high quality steel pocketed innerspring springs that serve as the core support of the mattress.
They go all the way to the edge of the mattress for maximum support from edge to edge.

1 ″ Top— described above.
The cover of the Idle latex hybrid is made of organic cotton and wool which are both breathable fabrics and assist with airflow and cooling.Idle Mattress Unpacking
Latex tends to sleep extremely cool because it is aerated and won’t trap heat the way a traditional memory foam mattress does.
Rather than using glue to keep the mattress layers together, Idle Sleep uses button tufting which is an eco-friendly method.
How firm is the Idle?
The Idle Sleep mattresses can be found in 2 firmness choices: Medium and Luxury Firm.
You have the option 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.
Heavier individuals 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 offer the best support whether you are resting on the edge or sleeping near it.
There is not much motion transfer although these mattresses do have some bounce. The individually wrapped coils isolate motion better than conventional inner springs. Compared to other hybrids in the mattress-in-a-box category this one may be a good choice if you sleep with a spouse or a family pet so your sleep will not be impacted by their motion.
- Ideal for all sleeping types
- Mattresses sleep cool
- 2-sided design extends the life of the mattress
- Great for people who like the feel of standard innerspring mattresses yet would also want the body contouring feel of memory foam
- More bounce which in turn causes some motion transfer
The Idle mattresses are designed to be used on a variety of bases including box springs/foundations, adjustable bases, slats, platform beds or perhaps the rug.
