The IDLE Sleep Hybrid is one of the best and most interesting hybrid beds currently present on the online mattress market. It comes with numerous great features and is also double sided, which means that you can flip the mattress over to extend its lifespan.

The Avocado, on the other hand, is the highest quality organic and latex mattress perfect for those who suffer from allergies.

IDLE Sleep Hybrid

Construction and Materials

The IDLE hybrid mattress is a 14″ hybrid pocketed coil and foam mattress made up of various layers of foam and pocketed coils, with the top comfort layers which are basically duplicated when flipped over.

  • A Natural Fire Resistant Barrier – Beneath the cover there is a natural fire resistant barrier that is free of carcinogenic chemicals, gases, toxins, HCN, HCI, and bromine.
  • 1″ Top Comfort Layer – This layer is 1″ of  contouring IDLE foam that is quilted into the cover and designed to provide softness and comfort to the top layer of the mattress.
  • 2″ Cooling & Pressure Relief layer – This layer is 2″ of IDLE Cooling Buoyancy foam, a custom blend of foam that reacts faster than memory foam, provides better support, promises 4x better pressure relief than traditional memory foam and also helps provide more cooling to the mattress.
  • 1″ Supportive Transition Layer – This layer is 1″ of the special foam that provides support and serves as the transition layer between the top comfort layers of memory foam and pocketed coil system below.
  • 6″ Support Layer – This layer is 6″ of Quantum edge-to-edge high quality steel pocketed innerspring coils sandwiched between the layers of foam that acts as the core support to the mattress and provides deep compression support with great edge support.
  • 1″ Supportive Transition Layer – same as top layers
  • 2″ Cooling and Pressure Relief layer – same as the top layers
  • 1″ Top Comfort Layer – same as top layers
  • A Natural Fire Resistant Barrier

The cover of the IDLE Sleep hybrid mattress is infused with Thermocool – a material that aids in heat dissipation and acts as phase-change temperature regulating material that cools you when you’re warm, and warms you when you are cool.

It also features beautiful and durable carry handles and has a nice pattern on it that feels good and adds to the overall comfort and luxuriousness of this mattress.

Firmness and Support

The IDLE hybrid mattress comes in 2 different firmness options, Medium and Luxury Firm. We tested the medium firm model, and rate it around a 6.5 out of 10 (10 being firmest). The company says it is more of a 5.5 / 6, but in our experience, and like many hybrid models, it feels firmer.

In terms of support, the IDLE mattress does a really good job of providing excellent support in all sleeping positions, with the top memory foam comfort layers providing body hug and contour with the underlying spring support layer providing the deep compression support for the body.

Comfort

The IDLE Sleep Hybrid mattress is a rather comfortable mattress designed to provide the “best of both worlds”, the feel of the bounce and support of innerspring coils and the body hug and contour of memory foam.

The nice 14″ thickness of this mattress with its high quality pocketed coil support layer does a really good job of providing excellent support in all sleeping positions, with the top memory foam comfort layers providing body hug and contour and the underlying spring support layer providing the deep compression support for the body.

Sleeping Hot

Various cooling technologies used in the construction of this mattress make it sleep incredibly cool.

The Thermocool infused top layer as well as the IDLE Cooling Buoyancy foam, combined with the innerspring coil layer which by design provides good airflow and discourages heat retention, all contribute to helping this bed sleep much cooler than many models we have tested.

Sinkage and Motion Transfer

This mattress does an good job with sinkage, especially compared to most mattresses we have reviewed. Its thick 14″ design and high quality coil construction along with layers of foam that helps minimize sinkage to the least bit.

Edge support is also very good with this mattress due to the edge-to-edge Quantum Coil design of the mattress.

As for the motion transfer, it is a little bit higher than in most memory foam mattresses we have reviewed, but it is to be expected with the hybrid construction of this mattress which naturally provides more bounce than the full foam or latex mattresses due to the innerspring coils in its construction.

Smell / Off-Gassing

The IDLE Sleep Hybrid gets high marks in this category for not having a noticeable smell upon opening the box. Its hybrid construction minimizes the degree of off-gassing typical for memory foam mattresses.

Avocado

Construction and Materials

Unlike the 14″ thick foam and pocketed coil IDLE Sleep Hybrid, the Avocado mattress is an 11″ hybrid combining natural latex, wool, organic cotton, and pocketed coils and it now comes with pillow top that is permanently attached with 2 more inches of plush organic latex for added pressure relief and luxury.

The Avocado consists of the following layers:

  • 2″ Comfort Layer – This layer is made of 2″ soft natural Dunlop latex designed to increase airflow and provide comfort and responsiveness to the mattress.
  • 1″ Transition Layer – This layer is 1″ of the high-density Dunlop latex, which gives firmness to the mattress and provides a transition between the upper comfort layer and the coil support layer.
  • 8″ Foundation Layer – This layer is 8″ of individually pocketed innerspring coils (up to 1303 in the largest mattress) that provide even distribution of weight, pressure point, and the underlying support to the mattress. The coils are arranged in zones for greater comfort with 3 distinct areas to provide support where it is needed most.

The cover of the Avocado mattress is button-tufted and made up of 100% organic cotton and antimicrobial wool.

It is soft to the touch, breathable, provides a luxurious feel and helps with temperature control. Besides this, the Avocado mattress has hand-sewn upholstered handles on its sides for easier moving or rotating.

Firmness and Support

Again, unlike the IDLE Sleep Hybrid, the Avocado mattress comes in only one firmness option and scores 6 out of 10 on the firmness scale, with 10 being the firmest.

Its pocketed coil foundation layer provides good support, whereas the top latex layer combined with the pillow top provides more of a sensation of floating that is a specific characteristic of memory foam mattresses.

There is also a large degree of bounce to the mattress coming from the latex foam and innerspring layers. The Avocado uses two different latex layers, a soft in the comfort layer and firmer in the transition layer that adds to the comfort when combined with the luxurious organic cotton and wool.

The latex will not provide you with a feeling of deep hug felt with layers of traditional memory foam, but it offers a good contouring and makes the mattress suitable for all sleeping positions.

Comfort

As for the comfort, the Avocado mattress is a rather comfortable one, especially with the soft pillow top that adds more pressure relief and luxury. The coil base foundation provides your body with a good support while the top comfort layers provide necessary contouring.

It offers nice bounce and a high degree of push-back and response. Although latex may not provide you with a feeling of deep hug offered by memory foam, with time it will adapt to your body and become a lot more comfortable.

Sleeping Hot

Apart from the organic cotton and wool cover, latex layers, and air circulation that innerspring coils offer, the Avocado mattress doesn’t have a large degree of cooling technology, but this is enough to keep your sleeping surface cool and comfortable and provide you with a quality night’s sleep.

Latex is known for its cooling properties, while wool acts as a natural temperature regulator. All this combined with a good airflow coming from the innerspring coils will prevent the build-up of heat and keep you cool throughout the entire night.

Sinkage and Motion Transfer

The Avocado mattress has a minimal sinkage with the latex and coil construction doing an excellent job in providing the support and push-back. It offers solid edge support and eliminates the feeling of “rolling off“ of the mattress.

As for the motion transfer, it is a little bit higher than in most mattresses we have reviewed as the coils and latex provide a large degree of bounce and responsiveness. The heavier weight of my partner Andrew (230lbs) also caused the mattress to move more than usual.

Smell/Off-Gassing

The Avocado mattress doesn’t have any noticeable smell upon opening the box which is the result of the organic design and build of the mattress and the absence of foam in its construction. Therefore, it gets high marks in this category.

All in all, $1399 for a Queen is a great price for a high-quality organic mattress, and it is surprisingly low given the luxurious materials included.
