IDLE Sleep Natural Latex Hybrid

Construction and Materials

The IDLE Sleep Natural Latex Hybrid mattress is a 14″ hybrid pocketed coil and latex mattress made up of 5 layers, with the top comfort layers which are basically duplicated when flipped over.

  • 1″ Top Comfort Layer – This layer is 1″ of a natural wool quilted into the cover and designed to provide softness and comfort. It also acts as a natural fire barrier.
  • 3″ Response Layer – This layer is 3″ of 100% Pure GOLS Certified Dunlop Latex designed to provide open cell breathability and an optimal level of support. It also provides cooling, responsiveness and bounce to the mattress and is naturally hypoallergenic and anti-microbial.
  • 6″ Support Layer – This layer is 6″ of Quantum edge-to-edge high quality steel pocketed innerspring coils sandwiched between that act as the core support to the mattress and provide deep compression support with great edge support.
  • 3″ Response Layer – same as the top layers
  • 1″ Top Comfort Layer – same as top layers

The cover of the IDLE Sleep Natural Latex Hybrid mattress is a highly breathable, all natural organic cotton cover which goes all the way around the mattress, allows greater airflow through the mattress and aids in cooling.

The cover features double button tufting soft yarn rosettes which hold the layers of the mattress together and increases the overall durability and stability of this mattress.

There are also carry handles on each side of the mattress which allow you to easily move around the mattress and flip it over whenever you want.

Firmness and Support

The IDLE Sleep hybrid mattress comes in two firmness levels, Medium and Luxury Firm. It also allows you to select the firmness of each side of the bed and have two Firm sides, two Medium sides or one Medium and one Firm side.

We tested the mattress and felt the Medium side to be around a 6.5 on the firmness scale (10 being the firmest) and the Luxury Firm around 9.

In terms of support, the IDLE Sleep Natural Latex mattress provided us with excellent support in all sleeping positions. Its nice 14″ thick design combined with the pocketed coil system and latex layers did a great job of lifting Andrew’s heavy body weight and our combined weights sleeping as a couple and supported them with ease.

Comfort

The IDLE Sleep Natural Latex Hybrid mattress is an extremely comfortable mattress with its soft organic cotton cover and wool beneath providing a pleasant and cool sleeping surface and a natural latex layer offering good amount of pressure relief, support and a nice degree of bounce and responsiveness.

A nice 14″ thickness of this mattress, combined with the natural latex and pocketed coil system will cradle your body to provide excellent pressure relief while also having enough firmness and support necessary to keep your spine properly aligned in all sleeping positions.

Sleeping Hot

The IDLE Sleep Natural Latex Hybrid mattress sleeps pretty cool due to the use of the natural latex, organic cotton and wool in its construction.

All of these materials are known for their cooling properties and will allow greater airflow through the mattress, wick away moisture and ensure the mattress sleeps cool and keep you comfortable.

Sinkage and Motion Transfer

The IDLE Sleep Natural Latex Hybrid mattress does a good job of minimizing the amount of sinkage and motion transfer, especially compared to most mattresses we have reviewed.

Its thick 14″ design and high quality picketed coil layer along with latex layers and wool on top all worked together to lift Andrew’s weight and our combined weights as a couple with ease and distribute them evenly across the bed.

Edge support is also good with this mattress due to its edge-to-edge Quantum coil design.

As for motion transfer, it is a little more noticeable with this mattress due to its hybrid construction and the use of pocketed springs and natural latex that is known for the bounce and responsiveness that it provides. But, it was nothing too serious and did not interfere with our sleep.

Smell / Off-Gassing

The IDLE Sleep Natural Latex 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.

Helix Midnight Luxe

Construction and Materials

The Helix Midnight Luxe mattress is a 14″ hybrid mattress made up of gel memory foam, 1000 + pocketed coils, and foam. It consists of the following layers:

  • 1″ Comfort Layer – This layer is 1″ of Gel memory foam that is extremely soft and designed to provide pressure relief and increase the overall comfort of this mattress.
  • 2″ Support Layer – This layer is 2″ of Memory Plus Foam, designed to cushion and support your body.
  • 1″ Transition Layer – This layer is 1″ of high-density High-Grade Polyfoam, designed to provide ergonomic support, contour to your body and serve as a transition layer between the top comfort foam layers and firmer coils bellow. It also allows a seamless progression of your body weight into the mattress.
  • 8″ Zoned Body Shape Layer – This layer is 8″ of individually wrapped coils that serve to cradle and support your body while sleeping and limit excessive motion transfer. They provide the right amount of support to those areas of your body where it is needed most. It offers a softer feel under your shoulders and firmer under hips to cradle your body, align your spine and provide advanced lumbar and edge support.
  • 1″ Base Layer – This layer is 1″ of DuraDense high density support foam that serves as the foundation and support for the mattress and increases its durability and stability.

The cover of the Helix Midnight Luxe mattress is extremely soft 1-inch quilted premium pillow top made up of high-density polyurethane foam.

It increases the overall comfort of this mattress and the Ultra Breathable technology that it incorporates helps increase the airflow through the mattress and keeps you cool all night long.

Firmness and Support

Unlike the IDLE Sleep Natural Latex Hybrid that comes in two firmness levels, the Helix Midnight Luxe mattress is a universal comfort model, designed to appeal to a wide range of sleepers and we felt it to be a medium firm mattress, falling somewhere around a 6 out of 10 on the firmness scale (10 being the firmest).

The soft pillow top combined with the gel memory foam comfort layer below a soft feel and allowed me to sink into a mattress to a certain degree for a perfect pressure relief.

The slightly firmer support and transition layers beneath with the pocketed coil layer did an excellent job of providing extraordinary support to those areas of my body where I needed it most.

Zoning technology used in the coil layer offered a softer feel under shoulders and firmer under hips which made this mattress perfect for side sleeping. In addition these layers lifted Andrew’s heavy weight and our weights combined as a couple with ease and helped distribute them evenly across the bed.

All in all, it did a great job of meeting our individual firmness and support needs and provided us with what each of us enjoy in the same bed.

Comfort

Just like the IDLE Sleep Natural Latex Hybrid, the Helix Midnight Luxe mattress is extremely comfortable in that its unique construction and quality materials provide a medium feel and a perfect balance of comfort and support.

The premium quilted pillow top increases the overall comfort of this mattress and gives the feeling of sleeping on clouds and eliminates any possibility of the appearance of pressure points.

It also has a nice degree of responsiveness that facilitates moving around in bed during the night and makes this mattress perfect for sex.

Sleeping Hot

The Helix Midnight Luxe mattress does an excellent job at sleeping cool, just like the IDLE Sleep Natural Latex Hybrid, due to its pocketed coil layer that allows the air to circulate freely through the mattress and prevent the build up of heat and a special Ultra Breathable Cover designed to increase airflow, create a pleasant sleeping surface and keep you cool during the night.

Sinkage and Motion Transfer

The Helix Midnight Luxe does a great job of minimizing the amount of sinkage and motion transfer.

It is true that Andrew compressed the pillow top and comfort layer beneath it quite a bit, but the firmer support and transition layers combined with the pocketed coils prevented him from sinking further into the mattress and feeling enveloped by it.

These layers lifted his heavy weight with ease and distributed it evenly across the bed while the zoned technology of the pocketed coil layer provided just the right amount of support to those areas of his body where he needed it most. I felt the mattress did the same for me.

Edge support is excellent with this mattress and better than with many other beds we have reviewed so far due to the quality pocketed coils used in its construction.

There wasn’t too much motion transfer with this mattress due to its unique construction that prevented any sleep disturbance.

Smell / Off-Gassing

The Helix Midnight Luxe gets high marks in this category for not having much of a noticeable smell upon opening the box. Its hybrid design significantly reduced the amount of of-gassing and any smell that was present dissipated within a few hours.
