Luft introduced a high quality hybrid mattress that is nice and thick and comfortable, with several technological innovations, at a great price and we take a look at it in this review.
Luft makes a hybrid, as well as a an all-foam mattress which we have also reviewed here, depending on what type of mattress feel you prefer.
Luft is entering the online mattress market promising a great product, with great customer service, quality American made products, and very good prices for their products.

Construction and Materials
The Luft Hybrid mattress is a 13″ hybrid pocketed coil and foam mattress made up of 5 layers.
- 3″ Top Comfort Layer – This layer is 2″ of quilted foam embedded within the top cover to 1″ of high loft fiber designed to improve airflow and and aid in cooling the mattress.
- 1″ Cooling and Comfort Layer – This layer is 1″ of graphite infused memory foam that aids in cooling as well as distributing body weight evenly across the mattress.
- 2″ Support Layer – This layer is 2″ of 1.8lb poly foam that works to provide support and transition to the lower coil layer.
- 6″ Coil Layer – This layer is 6″ of zoned edge support pocketed innerspring coils that acts as the core support layer and provides deep compression support for the body during sleep.
- 1″ Foundation Layer – This layer is 1″ of high density support foam that helps provide a foundation for the mattress and increased durability.
The cover of the Luft Hybrid mattress has gel-infused foam embedded in it, along with 1″ of fiber which helps with cooling and breathability. The cover has a nice pattern on it that looks and good and the foam quilted within it which aids in comfort and airflow.
Firmness & Support
The Luft Hybrid mattress only comes in one firmness option, which we rate it at a 6-7 out of 10 (10 being the firmest).
The Luft Hybrid mattress feels a little on the firmer side to me, as I am significantly heavier than Kaye, and I tend to press through the top comfort layers and feel more of the support layers in most mattresses.
The nice 13″ thickness in the Luft Hybrid does help support both my heavier 230lb weight and combined weight with Kaye, and is something we like to see in mattresses, which is a big change from the standard 10″ offerings many mattress companies come to market with.
In terms of support, for us the Luft Hybrid mattress does a really good job of providing excellent support in all sleeping positions.
As we are primarily side sleepers, we like mattresses that provide enough give in the top comfort layer to support our shoulders and hips, while also having the firmness if we switch to our stomach or back – without causing hip or shoulder pain from sinking down too low into the mattress.
The Luft Hybrid mattress provides a good degree of support a heavier sleeper like myself needs from the pocketed coil foundation layer combined with the top comfort layers. This tends to cause the mattress to sleep a little on the firmer side, but this is something we personally find is similar with all hybrid coil mattresses due to the stiffness of the coils.
The Luft Hybrid mattress is quite comfortable, with the expected bounce coming from the coils combined with the foam mattress top layers providing good body contour and hug along with cooling and comfort.
After sleeping on the Luft Hybrid for a while, we found that our bodies adapted to the mattress and molded to the memory foam without feeling stuck or trapped in the foam. The coils helped provide the bounce needed to switch positions during the night and supported my heavy bodyweight with ease as well as our combined weight as a couple.
The Luft Hybrid is both very supportive and comfortable, and the high quality materials and craftsmanship do a great job at helping provide a comfortable nights sleep.
The combination of the zoned pocketed coil layer combined with layers of memory foam do a good job at providing a comfortable mattress for all sleeping positions and for couples as well.
The Luft Hybrid mattress does a good job of not sleeping hot due to the gel and graphite infused foam layers in the mattress and of course the innerspring coils.
Innerspring coil mattresses by default sleep cooler than all foam mattresses, due to increased air movement, and this combined with the top layers of gel and graphite foam all do a great job in ensuring the Luft hybrid mattress sleeps cool and comfortable.
For us, living in Texas, this is a big factor in evaluating mattresses, and the Luft Hybrid does a great job at pulling off preventing heat buildup and promoting a cool sleeping environment.
Sinkage & Motion Transfer
The Luft Hybrid does an good job with sinkage, especially compared to most mattresses we have reviewed. As we always preach, sinkage (and motion transfer) is largely weight dependent.
The fact that I weigh around 230lbs tends to have a rather large bearing on the degree of sinkage I experience when sitting and lying on a mattress. Kaye, who is half my weight, experiences much less sinkage than I do, but again this is to be expected due to her much lighter weight.
Edge support is very good with this mattress, and better than many mattresses we have reviewed. The Luft Hybrid coil layer has a specific perimeter support layer in the mattress which helps with this as well.
I slept near the edge at time to test this and did not experience any of the “rolling off” the edges or having them compressed under my weight, which is something that other mattresses without edge support technology tend to cause.
Motion transfer is more than most all foam mattresses we have reviewed, as to be expected with a hybrid coil mattress which provides more bounce than a foam or latex mattress due to the innerspring coils in its construction.
Kaye and I felt a little disruption in our sleep by the shaking of the mattress when each other changed positions or got in or out of bed during the night but nothing too extreme like some competing beds. Again, this is more a function of the innerspring coil construction not any fault of the mattress per se.
Smell / Off-Gassing
This bed gets high marks in this category for not having a noticeable smell upon opening the box. The hybrid coil / foam construction minimized the degree of off-gassing that all foam mattresses usually have.
Luft goes out of its way to provide an excellent product with excellent service, and the company offers many of the same features as other online mattress retailers, such as:

|Size||Foam Price||Hybrid Price|
The Luft Hybrid mattress is a great hybrid coil / foam mattress that provides the benefits of both innerspring mattresses and memory foam mattresses as well, in a comfortable and supportive mattress at a great price.
The Luft Hybrid provides a good medium firmness and good support for all sleeping styles, and provides a higher degree of bounce and responsiveness from the coil hybrid design. While this makes the mattress have more motion transfer, this is to be expected for these type of designs.
The Luft Hybrid sleeps cool due to the use of graphite and gel foam layers as well as the innerspring coil layer, and has great edge support as well, which all lend to it being a great mattress for couples as well as those that like the bounce of innerspring mattresses and the hug and contour of foam.
All in all, the Luft Hybrid is an excellent hybrid coil/foam mattress for sleepers looking for the bounce and support of innerspring technology combined with the body hug and contour of memory foam.
We hope that our review of the Luft Hybrid mattress helps you out in your next mattress purchase and let us know if you have any questions!
