The unique style of the Idle Sleep mattress will interest a lot of people.Idle Sleep Beds
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 a concept that used to be typical for many conventional innerspring mattresses up until the costs got too high to produce them. Then mattress brands stopped selling the ones you could flip and chose the cheaper to manufacture one-sided variations.
In a bold move, Idle Sleep has revived the flippable 2-sided mattress.
This unique design makes it possible for you to flip the Idle over occasionally to prolong the life of the mattress and avoid any sagging or indentations from occurring. This is especially advantageous in the case of couples where one partner is much heavier than the other.

Idle Hybrid Mattress OverviewIdle Sleep Beds
All Idle mattresses are hand made 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 ideal 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 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 guarantees that they contain no PBDE’s, TDCPP or ozone depleters.
Idle mattresses are 14″ tall and created with handgrips attached on the sides which make it easier to rotate them.
They are also suitable for all sleepers: side, stomach, back and combination sleepers (individuals that turn between positions throughout the night.)
The hybrid mattresses are also suggested 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 out of are known for their cooling properties.
1 ″ Quilted Foam Cover— Contouring foam is woven into the upper layer which offers 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 gives far 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.

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— This all cotton cover actually has a 1-inch layer of natural wool woven into it to provide comfort and added softness.
3 ″ Gel Buoyancy Foam— 100% Natural Dunlop Latex or Talalay layers offers 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 properties, too.
6 ″ Pocketed Coils— This layer has high quality steel pocketed innerspring springs that act as the core support of the mattress.
They go all the way to the edge of the mattress for optimal 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 materials and help with airflow and cooling.Idle Sleep Beds
Latex tends to sleep really cool since it is aerated and will not trap heat the way a standard memory foam mattress does.
Instead of using glue to keep the mattress layers together, Idle Sleep uses button tufting which is an eco-friendly method.
What is the firmness of the Idle?
The Idle Sleep mattresses are available in 2 firmness options: Medium and Luxury Firm.
You have the choice 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.
Larger people will find the Luxury Firm more supportive.
This is a measure of how supportive the bed is around its border.
The coils on the Idle Sleep mattresses go right to the edge of the mattresses to supply the very best 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 separately enclosed coils isolate movement much better than conventional inner springs. Compared to other hybrids in the mattress-in-a-box classification this one may be a great alternative if you sleep with a spouse or a family pet so your sleep won’t be disturbed by their movement.

- Mattresses sleep cool
