Idle has produced a mattress with a special design.Idle Mattress Used
Unlike other flippable bed-in-the-box mattresses which have a different firmness on each side, Idle developed their mattresses with the SAME firmness on both sides.
This was an idea that used to be common for numerous conventional innerspring mattresses till the costs got too expensive to produce them. Then mattress companies stopped selling the ones you could turn and opted for the more affordable to produce one-sided versions.
In a novel move, Idle has revived the flippable 2-sided mattress.
This distinct style makes it possible for you to flip the Idle over regularly to lengthen the life of the mattress and avoid any drooping or indentations from occurring. This is particularly advantageous in the case of couples where one partner is larger than the other.

Idle Hybrid Mattress OverviewIdle Mattress Used
The business, 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 home for a full 18 months to decide if Idle is right for you. If at anytime within the 18 month trial you choose Idle is not the best mattress for you, they will coordinate a return or donation and refund 100% of your purchase cost. Idle’s trial is the longest in the industry– 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 means that they consist of no PBDE’s, ozone depleters or TDCPP.
They are both 14″ high, 2-sided and include handgrips for ease in flipping over the mattresses.
They are also ideal for all sleepers: side, stomach, back and combo sleepers (people that turn between positions during the night.)
The hybrid mattresses are also recommended for people with back pain because the springs will give your spine 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 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 developed with aerated foam which provides cooling and bounce.
2 ″ Cooling Buoyancy Foam— Made without visco elastic chemicals to stay cooler than memory foam and provides better pressure relief for places like hips and back.
6 ″ Pocketed Coils— This layer acts 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.
You can order this hybrid with Talalay or Dunlop latex.
Cover— This all cotton cover actually has a 1″ layer of natural wool woven into it to provide more comfort and added softness.
3 ″ Gel Buoyancy Foam— Talalay or 100% Natural Dunlop Latex layers supplies cooling and bounce to the mattress as well as giving 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 serve 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.

The Idle Latex Hybrid is made with 100% organic cotton, wool and natural latex which are materials that are known for their cooling qualities.Idle Mattress Used
Latex tends to sleep very cool due to the fact that it is aerated and won’t trap heat the way a conventional memory foam mattress does.
The layers are held together with button tufting instead of glue making this a truly environmentally friendly mattress.
How firm is the Idle?
The Idle Sleep mattresses are available in 2 firmness possibilities: 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.
Heavier people will find the Luxury Firm more supportive.
This is a measure of how firm the bed is around its border.
The coils on the Idle Sleep mattresses go right to the edge of the mattresses to provide the very best edge support whether you are sitting 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 far better than conventional inner springs. Compared to other hybrids in the mattress-in-a-box category this one may be a good option if you sleep with a significant other or a pet so your sleep won’t be affected by their movement.
