So, what is the Nest Bedding Hybrid Latex Mattress made of?
The Nest Bedding Hybrid Latex Mattress is one of the two eco-friendly solutions offered by the reputable brand. Being 12 inches thick, it is 2 above industry standards and thus it is expected to last, also thanks to its premium build:
Top layer – 2 inches of wool designed to offer a cool and soft sleeping experience.
Second layer – 3 inches of latex foam. The natural Dunlop latex is built to provide a comfortable and pressure relieving experience, yet it has other qualities as well including better bounce, fast response, sleeping cool, and acting as a great transitional layer for the coils underneath.
Bottom layer – 7 inches of pocketed individually wrapped coils in 5 Zones (The Queen size features 1100 of these). The coils keep the mattress well supported all around and also offer enhanced support. Depending on the need of the sleeper, the 5 zones can provide different levels of support.
Wool does great to regulate temperature, which basically means it can deal with heat retention great and thus lead to a cool sleeping experience.
The natural cotton also contributes to sleeping cool as it enables a better level of breathability.
As you probably can guess, the cotton (100% organic) and wool combo provide an overall softer initial feel without being deprived of the supportive structure the latex has to offer.
It also helps ensure that you get excellent bounce and responsiveness, which we think you will love if you are a latex enthusiast.
As far as aesthetics, we wouldn’t call this a modern looking cover. On the contrary, it has a classic feel as it looks rather traditional featuring an off-white top. Still, it is a beautiful looking mattress.
Added advantage: Definitely a pro feature, is how you can fully unzip and take off the top half of the cover in order to choose a different firmness level. It is always good to see this type of innovation designs and customization in a mattress, right?
There are also four handles in the cover conveniently designed to make it quite easy to transfer the mattress.
The Nest Bedding Hybrid Latex Mattress comes in two different firmness options: it is offered in both medium and firm, as well as split firm/medium. The medium one ranks at a 6 out of 10 on the firmness scale, while the firm lands somewhat near to an 8.5 out of 10.
The latex enables an excellent push back attribute, which means it can support all types of sleepers and still offer great pressure relief.
As far as the bounce, this is also notable as the latex is exceptionally responsive and combined with the coils below, make the mattress bounce reaching a maximum, which could be pleasing for amorous activities.
The Nest Bedding Hybrid Latex Mattress does an impressive job support-wise. It is ideal for any sleep position, which sounds remarkable and feels even better!
The 5 zones of pocketed coils which are placed under the latex offer just the kind of support you would ask and at the most sensitive areas of the body. Perhaps the support is a bit better if you are a stomach or back sleeper, but overall the Nest Bedding Hybrid Latex Mattress excels with this respect.
Edge support is decent enough with this mattress, although the springs do compress a lot when sitting on the edge, especially if you are a heavier sleeper.
Value for money
The Nest Bedding Hybrid Latex Mattress is priced more expensive than other mattresses yet this is reasonable taking into consideration how it features premium all natural materials. In fact, since a Queen costs $1599, it is much more expensive than foam mattresses however still not as much as other latex mattresses.
Here’s an overview of the pricing depending on size:
|Split California King||$2598|
Doesn’t Sleep Hot
As a result of not having any particular cooling technology and provision, the Nest Bedding Hybrid Latex Mattress does not sleep as cool as other mattresses.
Due to its wool cover and latex layer, you should expect a moderate amount of heat retention during the night. Not that it is unbearable, yet still you would not prefer it if you tend to sleep hot.
Sinkage and Motion Transfer
On the other hand, this mattress does a pretty awesome job with regards to sinkage.
The Hybrid Latex bed structure provides substantial support thanks to the coil foundation whereas the latex top layer is what makes for a “floating” sensation rather than the “sinking down into” the mattress which is usually the case with memory foam.
If you fancy the hug and contour of memory foam, then you will probably not like the latex feel which is quite firm unless it is a soft latex layer.
That said, we think the medium firm Nest Bedding Hybrid Latex Mattress offers a balanced experience of sinkage and hug, although it is more of a rounded contour, meaning both the body and the area around the body will have an even level of sinkage.
With regards to motion transfer, the Nest Bedding Hybrid Latex Mattress does not perform as well as a memory foam mattress would, resulting from the fact that the coils and latex have distinct bounce and responsiveness qualities.
In this sense, in particular when a heavier partner tosses and turns around in this mattress, you will most likely sense it (moderately though).
The Nest Bedding Hybrid Latex as you would expect from its premium build and natural latex instead of foams in the construction, does not emit any particular odor or off-gassing. In addition, all components used in this mattress are CertiPUR-US approved.
The Nest Bedding Hybrid Latex Mattress is handcrafted in the USA and you should expect it takes about 2-3 days to make it and another 3-5 business days to get to your doorstep.
The standard cost-effective shipping is free of charge within the contiguous USA, yet if you are in a hurry there is always a chance to select expedited shipping at an additional charge – better email the company with your request before placing the order though.
Shipping is possible to Hawaii and Alaska, yet it comes at an extra cost of $150. For better arrangements, it is advised to first ask for a quote before placing an order for these areas.
Your package will arrive compressed in a bed-in-a-box style, and its box small enough to fit through your front door, however depending on the size, you might receive a box of up to 80” long. As it is heavy, you will need some assistance to move it.
Your Nest Bedding Hybrid Latex Mattress comes with a remarkable 20 years warranty, similar to its other Alexander, latex and natural mattresses. This is also the same type of warranty the Ghostbed and Live and Sleep mattress offer. The reputable Nest Bedding Company is definitely confident about their products.
In fact, the company provides 100 days of sleep risk-free trial. This basically means that if for any reason you are not pleased with your new mattress, you can claim a full refund within 100 days from the day it is delivered, not ordered.
