The Bear Hybrid mattress combines microcoil technology as well as numerous layers of foam to create a supportive and pressure relieving sleep experience.
The Celliant technology employed in the top layers makes this an ideal choice for athletes as it increased blood flow and speeds up recovery.
At the same time, the top layers also add a sense of luxury to this hybrid mattress. The super soft polyfoam gives the mattress a pillow top feel, something like you may find in a luxury hotel.
However, for larger or heavier people who primarily sleep on their side, you may sink through those initial soft layers quickly and reach the firmer layers – making it feel firmer for you.
If you are a combination sleeper, specifically back and stomach, this mattress gives good support, keeping your spine at neutral alignment.
Overall, for someone like me, the Bear Hybrid firmness level was about average.
Even with its foam layers, the Bear Hybrid has more of a spring mattress feel. It has a nice bounce and a comfortable cradling effect.
If you are seeking more of that memory foam mattress feel, you may wish to look for something softer. While you will feel cradled, you won’t have that sinking, memory foam experience.
If you struggle with sleeping, the Bear Hybrid could also be a good choice for you. The layer of microcoils provides airflow, while the cooling gel foam help dissipates heat.
The Bear Hybrid offers good edge support and motion isolation, making it a good mattress for couples. You won’t feel your partner moving around in the night, and you will be able to utilize the full surface area of the mattress.
For you combination sleepers out there who are seeking a spring mattress feel along with the softness of memory foam, the Bear Hybrid might be a nice option for you.
