The 14″ Hybrid mattress from IDLE Sleep is part of a family of mattresses that are all uniquely 2-sided. The hybrid features a mixture of custom-blended foam layers and a durable coil system for a good combination of pressure relieving comfort and support. So, who is this mattress a good fit for? Read on for my full review.
The mattress is made by IDLE Sleep, whose founder has more than 18 years of experience in the industry. IDLE Sleep currently makes four 2-sided mattress models, including an All-Foam option and a Latex option.
IDLE Sleep makes a range of 2-sided mattresses but if you’re particularly interested in the 14” Hybrid option, you can choose between two different comfort levels: Medium and Luxury Firm. Learn more on which to pick HERE.
My review is for the Medium bed. As you can see, it comes in at about a 5.5-6 out of 10 in the firmness range, according to the company. Typically, average firmness is about 6.5-7 out of 10, which makes this just slightly under average firmness.
The medium is designed for all sleep positions and may suit people who sleep in multiple positions at night. Since it is just under average firmness and contains softer contouring layers on top, it really is probably the best fit for side sleepers who benefit from added pressure relief.
The Luxury Firm comes in just above average and is a good fit for those who sleep primarily on their stomach, back or are heavier or have a larger body frame.
The 14” Hybrid mattress is made up of layers of foam surrounding a coil unit. Keep in mind that the mattress is 2-sided. This means that you can flip the mattress over and it’ll be the same layers on one side as the other.
Here is a breakdown of each layer of the Hybrid mattress:
The three foam layers at the top of the mattress will then be featured underneath the coil system since the mattress is 2-sided.
In terms of durability, the density of both the IDLE Air Flow Response Foam and the IDLE Cooling Buoyancy Foam is high and the Quantum Edge pocketed coil system is also considered good quality. All of these factors combine to make the bed a nice quality and durable mattress.

As you can see from the video, the foam layers on the top of the mattress have a quicker response than traditional memory foam. The coil system underneath the layers also helps provide some overall bounce to the mattress.
The firmness is close to a 5.5-6 out of 10 – with a 6.5-7 being about average firmness. This puts the mattress at just below average firmness and, based on my experience, it even felt a little softer than Medium.
Check out the video below to get an idea of how the mattress feels.
The mattress is quick to respond and has more of a bouncy feel than traditional memory foam so I wasn’t sure if the motion isolation would be perfect. As you can see from the video, the foam layers still do a good job of isolating motion and I believe the coil system is helping to stabilize weight distribution as well.
The Quantum Edge-to-Edge coil system goes to the very edges of the mattress to provide support. However, the mattress also has 4″ of softer foam on top. I could use most of the surface area of the bed but when I sat up to get off the bed, I could feel that foam compression on the edge.
What really makes this mattress, and pretty much all IDLE Sleep mattresses, is their 2-sided design.
The pressure relief is also very noticeable. I don’t sink into the mattress but it feels soft and buoyant, which probably has to do with this foam combination on top, including their custom blended Cooling Buoyancy foam layer.
I enjoyed reviewing my first 2-sided mattress. One thing I appreciated was that the company used good quality materials and good construction, so the bed should last you a very long time (especially if you increase the longevity by flipping it).
The Medium firmness option felt a little bit softer than Medium to me and I really liked the pressure relief I felt when I laid on my side. Heavier individuals or those sleep primarily on their stomachs may prefer the Luxury Firm version.
The mattress comes with a 120-night trial period.
