You will like the IDLE Hybrid if you:

  • Are seeking a hybrid with a choice of firmness level
  • Are looking for a 2-sided/flappable mattress which can help extend the life of the mattress.
  • Are seeking a mattress that does not trap much heat
  • Want a choice of mattress type and firmness level
  • Looking to get a mattress that can last longer since it can be spun and flipped
  • Value a Lifetime Warranty – I wouldn’t expect any mattress to last an entire lifetime but if they are warrantying it its better than a 10-15 year warranty for sure.

You might not like IDLE Hybrid if you:

  • Want a very soft mattress.  They offer medium and luxury firm models.
  • Require a thin mattress for any reason
  • With all of their options, it’s likely you can find something you may like
  • Want a true memory foam feel – Idle foam has pressure relief like memory foam but its faster responding and a little less body hug, so if you like a lot of hug and more of the true sinking in memory foam feel you may not like it.

 IDLE SLEEP customer reviews 

Solid 5/5

I spent a little more time looking for a bed that would support myself and my boyfriend who is a little bigger. I didn’t want to pay a lot of money but I did need something that would last and support both of us. It has been a comfortable bed and is as strong as an ox.

Very Nice 5/5

I was pretty apprehensive to buy a mattress without trying it out first, but I did a lot of research and decided to take the plunge. I tried several different memory foam mattresses in stores and I’d say this one is superior to the others. The firmness level is just right: not too hard and not too soft. I sink in just enough to feel supported, but not so much that it’s difficult to move. I wake up less in the middle of the night and I’m not sore in the morning. I am very pleased with our purchase.

Next level bed 5/5

I ordered my Idle Sleep Hybrid medium firm bed about 5 weeks ago based on both the recommendation of an acquaintance and online reviews. I have been nothing short of elated at the quality of the bed and how well I sleep on it. It is plush and yet supportive and my girlfriend is staying over more often now which is an added bonus.

Great for my back

My Idle all foam bed has helped my back immensely and for a very reasonable price. Beds similar to this that I have found in stores are close to $1000 more. I was able to do my own research without being pressured to buy and ended up getting a really good deal on this bed.

IDLE Sleep Off Gassing

The first thing you will do when you get your Idle mattress is bring it to the room you will open it in.  You do not want to unroll it in another room.  Once you are ready to open it you can use the cutter some brands provide, if not use a scissors and be careful not to cut the fabric.

As it starts opening it will expand quickly and you will only notice a slight “new mattress smell”.  The Idle mattress is made in the USA so it is not roll packed very long, which helps with minimize off gassing.

“Off Gassing” for me is tricky because no matter what brand you are looking at they are going to have a smell.  “Natural” or Organic” mattresses often times have the strongest smell, even though people associate them with no off gassing.  A smell is normal and no matter what brand you buy is going to have some kind of new smell.

In most cases the smell will be gone within 12-36 hours or very faint.  I always recommend using a mattress protector so once the mattress airs out use a protector and sheets and at that point you should not experience much smell at all.

IDLE Mattress Foundation

IDLE will work on any solid surface.  A wood foundation, boxspring, slats, the floor and will work on an adjustable base.

Essentially you just want to make sure whatever youre using the mattress on is flat.  An old boxspring a lot of times is still good but make sure its not bowed in the middle.

This will work on an adjustable base to a point but don’t expect to be sitting straight up and down.  Most people want to elevate the head some for reading or watching tv.  It will work well enough for that.

His and Hers – Firmness and Feel:

My thoughts (Ross)

I had a good experience on the IDLE Hybrid.  Being that I own a mattress store I am very familiar with 1 and 2 sided mattresses and we are a store that sells both where most large stores only sell 1 sided models.

In terms of feel, we tested the medium and it was a nice true medium.  Maybe just a touch on the firmer side of medium which I personally like since it will allow some break in without getting too soft.

It had good motion isolation and did not sleep hot.

The quality is very high and being able to spin and flip your mattress will extend the life of it.

Her thoughts (Kayla)

I pretty much agree with Ross. The overall feel was very good.  The mattress was very substantial, and built with quality in mind.

There was little motion transfer which is important to me because Ross and our dog move around a lot!

I think most people will like the overall feel of the medium.

Softness- Medium Firmness level: 5
Softness- Luxury Firm Firmness level: 5
1 Very Soft
5 Medium
10 Very Firm


Idle uses a Thermocool fabric and the IDLE foam was an open cell gel infused foam.  This did not get overly hot for us at all.

Their mattresses also have a quilt on them, I find in most cases the quilt helps provide some separation from the comfort foams that typically can trap heat.  Overall if you sleep hot you should not have any issues on the IDLE mattresses.

Adjustable Base Performance:

All of the IDLE Mattresses are tested to work on adjustable bases.  That is why they also offer one on their website.  In my experience I have found that mattresses with quilts can bunch up a little when adjusted all the way up but typically it will not be an issue or hurt the mattress.

Overall Summary

W had a very good experience on the IDLE Hybrid. I like the fact that they are double sided to help wear the beds more evenly. Overall they are well built, double sided, and felt great. I am impressed they are still priced as competitively as they are considering they have more foam and fabric in them being 2 sided. I think IDLE is well worth the price and a try.
