The unique design of the Idle Sleep mattress will appeal to a great deal of individuals.Idle Sleep Latex Hybrid Review
Unlike other dual-sided 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 typical for many traditional innerspring mattresses up until the expenses got too expensive to produce them. Then mattress brands stopped selling the ones you could turn and chose the more affordable to manufacture one-sided versions.
In a daring move, Idle has actually revived the flippable dual sided mattress.
This special design makes it possible for you to flip the Idle over periodically to prolong the life of the mattress and avoid any sagging or indentations from taking place. This is especially useful when it comes to couples where one partner is larger than the other.

Idle Hybrid Mattress SummaryIdle Sleep Latex Hybrid Review
All Idle mattresses are handmade in Colorado Springs, CO since 2017.
Idle has a really generous sleep trial duration of 18 months which is about 540 days. If at anytime within that trial duration you decide 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 industry– 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 indicates that they contain no PBDE’s, TDCPP or ozone depleters.
They are both 14″ high, 2-sided and include handgrips for ease in moving around the mattresses.
They are likewise suitable for all sleepers: side, stomach, back and combination sleepers (people that rotate between positions during the night.)
The hybrid mattresses are also suggested for people with back pain because the coils will give your spinal column 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 upper layer which gives it softness.
1 ″ Response Foam— This layer is developed with aerated foam which offers cooling and bounce.
2 ″ Cooling Buoyancy Foam— Made without visco elastic chemicals to stay cooler than memory foam and provides better pressure relief for areas like hips and back.
6 ″ Pocketed Coils— This layer functions 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 material 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 has a 1″ layer of natural wool woven into it to provide comfort and additional softness.
3 ″ Gel Buoyancy Foam— Talalay or 100% Natural Dunlop Latex layers supplies cooling and bounce to the mattress in addition to providing it more firmness 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 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.

The cover of the Idle latex hybrid is made from organic cotton and wool which are both breathable fabrics and assist with air flow and cooling.Idle Sleep Latex Hybrid Review
Latex tends to sleep very cool since it is aerated and won’t trap heat the way a standard memory foam mattress does.
The layers are held together with button tufting rather than glue which makes this a truly eco-friendly mattress.
What is the firmness of the Idle?
The Idle Sleep mattresses are available in 2 firmness choices: Medium and Luxury Firm.
You have the option of selecting 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 individuals will find the Luxury Firm more supportive.
This is a measure of how supportive the bed is around its perimeter.
The coils on the Idle Sleep mattresses go right to the edge of the mattresses to offer the very best support whether you are resting on the edge or sleeping near it.
There is not much motion transfer despite the fact that these mattresses do have some bounce. The separately enclosed coils isolate motion much better than standard inner springs. Compared to other hybrids in the mattress-in-a-box class this one might be a good alternative if you sleep with a spouse or a family pet so your sleep will not be disturbed by their motion.
