Tuft & Needle offers three mattresses: the Tuft & Needle Original, the Tuft & Needle Mint, and now the Tuft & Needle Hybrid. So what sets the Hybrid apart from other Tuft & Needle mattresses?


The main design difference would be the microcoils and pocketed coils. Both the Original and Mint are all-foam mattresses, but the Hybrid includes coils in its support layer instead of foam. This makes it a supportive, high-end mattress that is perfect for all different types of sleepers. But is this the right bed for you?

Introduction to Tuft & Needle Hybrid

This is a 12-inch hybrid mattress with a medium firmness rating of 5 on a 10-point firmness scale. the Tuft & Needle Hybrid consists of a three-part comfort layer. The top layer of the comfort system contains Tuft & Needle’s proprietary adaptive foam and graphite and cooling gel infused foam, both of which help draw heat away from the sleeper. Next is a layer of microcoils, followed by a layer of transition foam. The combination of the foam and coil layers provides the soft, snug comfort of an all-foam mattress while improving airflow through the coil springs.

Below the comfort layer is a support core of pocketed coils made of tempered steel. The support core stabilizes the sleep surface and prevents the sleeper from sinking too deep into the mattress. The coils provide resilient support – sleepers may notice a soft bounce – while providing durability.

Tuft & Needle Hybrid also comes with a reinforced soft-knit cover made of a micro-polyamide and polyester blend. The cover is not meant to be removed. However, its sturdy construction is durable and the cover can be partially cleaned as needed.

Tuft & Needle Hybrid mattress construction

The T&N Hybrid is made of six different layers, totaling 12 inches tall and covered with a plush, breathable knit material.

This mattress has a unique style of construction with pocketed coils sandwiched between two layers of foam. The coils are an important part of the construction because it gives you the edge support you are looking for as well as the ability to withstand heavier weights. This structure also helps you get more contour from the mattress. Coils are also important to the structure because this is what promotes airflow through the mattress. This prevents the mattress from retaining too much heat, so you can stay cooler at night. The top layer of the mattress is a thin layer of memory foam, so you get some of the feel of a memory foam mattress while providing some of the benefits of a coil mattress.

The mattress is also made with adaptive foam, which provides you with the perfect balance of support and comfort. This patented blend of memory foam and latex provides users with the softness they want and the ability to sink into the water when they go to bed. But this blend also gives you the responsiveness you want. The mattress is lined with gel beads and graphite to help dissipate heat so you can enjoy a cool night’s sleep.

Here’s a closer look at the exact construction of this mattress.

– The first layer contains 1″ of quilted open-cell foam infused with carbon fiber and graphite. It is designed to maximize comfort while remaining cool, as graphite is known to dissipate heat. The carbon fiber should maintain durability and prevent decomposition.

– The second layer uses 2 inches of T&N Adaptive foam, which provides gentle pressure release. It also contains ceramic gel beads and graphite that promote cooling.

– The third layer is a 1-inch transition coil layer that adds a bit of bounce and supports the upper comfort foam.

– The fourth layer, sandwiched between the two spring layers, is another inch of T&N Adaptive foam that fits easily into the thicker pocketed coil support.

– The fifth layer is the bed’s primary support system – 6 inches of pocketed coils create a more resilient feel and are reinforced at the edges for added durability.

– The sixth layer is 1 inch of high quality foam that allows these springs to spring up.

Tuft & Needle Hybrid Mattress VS Tuft & Needle Original Mattress

The Tuft & Needle Original mattress is an all-foam mattress made of 3 inches of the same Adaptive foam as the Tuft & Needle Hybrid, plus a 7-inch high-density foam support core. The Tuft & Needle mattress is slightly firmer than the Tuft & Needle Hybrid on a scale of 6.5 out of 10 or medium firmness.


Because it’s an all-foam mattress, the Tuft & Needle mattress will sleep warmer and won’t provide the same level of support and bounce, so the Tuft & Needle Hybrid may be the preferred choice for heavier people and combination sleepers. Likewise, the Tuft & Needle Hybrid will do a good job of anchoring the sleeper to the perimeter of the mattress and will increase the sleeping surface for those sharing the bed compared to the Tuft & Needle Hybrid, which has little to no edge support.


However, the Tuft & Needle Original mattress will provide better motion isolation and will not make any noise, which may be useful for people who share a bed with light sleepers.

Tuft & Needle Hybrid Mattress VS Tuft & Needle Mint Mattress

The all-foam Tuft & Needle Mint mattress is an updated version of the Tuft & Needle Original mattress. The Mint has a 7-inch HD foam support layer followed by a 2-inch foam transition layer with gel beads. The comfort layer is made of 3 inches of reinforced adaptive foam and additional graphite.

In terms of firmness, the Mint is somewhere between the Tuft & Needle Original and Tuft & Needle Hybrid. Side sleepers may find the Mint to be better at relieving pressure due to the thicker comfort layer. However, for heavier sleepers who need extra support, Tuft & Needle Hybrid would be a better choice.

Enhanced edge support and superior motion isolation make Mint a good choice for couples and those who have trouble getting up. While it should sleep cooler than the Tuft & Needle Original mattress, the Mint also doesn’t have coils, making the Tuft & Needle Hybrid a better choice for hot pillows. The coils in the Tuft & Needle Hybrid also add bounce, which makes it a better choice for sex and combination sleepers.

Tuft & Needle Hybrid Mattress VS Casper Wave Hybrid Mattress

The Casper Hybrid is 12 inches thick and similar in firmness to the Tuft & Needle Hybrid at 5.5. Like the Tuft & Needle Hybrid mattress, the Casper features a pocketed coil support core at the top of the foam base. Both mattresses are equally breathable and relatively quiet.

The Hybrid is a 6-layer mattress. The Hybrid is made of Tuft & Needle Adaptive foam (graphite + ceramic gel), quilted breathable memory foam (carbon fiber + graphite) and high quality pocketed springs. These materials combine to create Tuft & Needle’s softest, most breathable mattress yet!

Casper Wave Hybrid is an ergonomic mattress.Casper Wave Hybrid has breathable polyurethane foam with cooling gel, natural latex, zoned memory foam, polyurethane foam with gel pods, a durable polyurethane base, and foam with wrapped springs.Zoned Support Max provides full body relief and pain relief. Stronger sides provide edge support to help you get in and out of bed easily.


All things considered, this bed has few negative effects. It is reliable in almost every way. The mattress has a durable construction that is supportive, and we think most people will like the way it feels. The bed also comfortably accommodates sleepers of all shapes and sizes, whether they are primarily supine, prone or side sleepers.

Really, the only downside to the Tuft & Needle Hybrid is its price. At the end of the day, there are more affordable hybrid mattresses on the market. However, if you’re just looking for a quality hybrid mattress from a respected and well-known brand, it’s hard to go wrong with the Tuft & Needle Hybrid.
