Quick Overview

IDLE Sleep is a mattress and bedding company based in Colorado Springs, CO. The brand offers double-sided mattresses; each bed has two identical comfort systems – one on each side – and a shared support core. The current selection includes the following five models:

  • The IDLE Double Sided Hybrid is a flippable, single-firmness mattress. It is constructed with comfort layers of quilted polyfoam, aerated polyfoam, and transitional polyfoam. The shared support core consists of a 6″ pocketed coil layer. The cover is made from ThermoCool, a synthetic fabric made of recycled polymers blended with Tencel® lyocell and other fibers. The IDLE Double Sided Hybrid is 14″ thick and is available in two firmness settings, ‘Medium Firm’ (6 on the 1-10 firmness scale) and ‘Firm’ (8).
  • The IDLE Double Sided Latex Hybrid is built with a top comfort layer of quilted polyfoam followed by 3″ of non-aerated Talalay latex and a 6″ pocketed coil support core. The mattress is wrapped in an organic-cotton cover, as well. It has a 14″ profile and is available in three firmness settings: ‘Medium Firm’ (6) on both sides; ‘Firm’ (8) on both sides; or ‘Medium’ on one side and ‘Firm’ on the other.
  • The IDLE Double Sided All Foam features comfort layers of quilted polyfoam and gel-infused polyfoam on each side, along with a shared support core of high-density polyfoam. The cover is made of ThermoCool fabric. This mattress has a 14″ profile, and is available in ‘Medium Firm’ (6) and ‘Firm’ (8) settings.
  • The IDLE Double Sided Dual Firmness is an all-foam bed. It features comfort layers of quilted polyfoam and standard polyfoam, a transitional polyfoam layer, and a high-density polyfoam support core. The cover is made of ThermoCool fabric. This bed has a 12″ profile. One side of the mattress is considered ‘Medium’ (5) in terms of firmness; the other is ‘Firm’ (7).
  • The IDLE Air is an airbed. Its complex design includes a double-sided comfort layer of latex and memory foam, which can be removed or rotated to adjust the bed’s feel. Other comfort system components include a Euro-top cover, a textured polymer grid designed to provide targeted support to different areas of the sleeper’s body, and a transitional polyfoam layer. The adjustable air-chamber system is enclosed in high-density polyfoam. The Twin XL model comes with one air chamber and customers may order a single-chamber Queen; two chambers with dual-firmness settings are featured in the standard Queen, King, and California King sizes. Owners can adjust the firmness of the bed and program memory settings using a remote control included with purchase.

We have not had sufficient time to evaluate or collect verified experiences for all IDLE Sleep mattresses. For this reason, our IDLE Sleep review will focus solely on the IDLE Double Sided Hybrid. Once we have tested and reviewed ratings for IDLE Sleep’s other models, we will add more data and information to this review.

The IDLE Double Sided Hybrid has some advantages over other competing models. For one, the flippable design can extend the bed’s lifespan to a considerable extent; using each side with equal frequency will ensure the best product longevity. The mattress also comes in two firmness settings, ‘Medium Firm’ and ‘Firm,’ and has a 14″ profile. These characteristics make the Double Sided Hybrid particularly suitable for heavier people and side/stomach sleepers. Good air circulation through the coil and aerated foam layers also allows the bed to remain fairly temperature neutral; the ThermoCool cover also optimizes the bed for those who naturally sleep hot.

IDLE Sleep offers free shipping to customers in the contiguous U.S. White Glove delivery – including in-home assembly and old mattress removal upon request – is also available for an additional charge. The mattress is backed by a 120-night sleep trial and a nonprorated lifetime warranty. It currently costs $1,224, which is below-average compared to other hybrids.

Generally, firmer mattress settings are most suitable for heavier people. The IDLE Double Sided Hybrid appears to be no exception. The ‘Medium Firm’ option is ideal for those in the average weight group (130 to 230 lbs.); the comfort layers conform to a noticeable extent, which can be especially beneficial for side sleepers seeking better spinal alignment. The ‘Firm’ setting may be the best option for people who weigh more than 230 pounds. This bed conforms to a very moderate extent, making it a good option for back and stomach sleepers in this weight group. Those who weigh less than 130 pounds may find that these options are not soft enough and will not provide sufficient body conforming.

Our testing process found IDLE Double Sided Hybrid mattresses should also be great for you if…

  • You want to purchase a hybrid at a below-average price-point
  • You prefer mattresses with thicker-than-average profiles
  • You and/or your sleep partner awaken easily due to movement or noise
  • You tend to sleep hot

How Does the IDLE Double Sided Hybrid Compare to Other Beds?

As any consumer does with a product they’re considering, our mattress assessments naturally involve comparing them with other similar products. Be it composition, firmness, or price, we think it’s important to see how IDLE Double Sided Hybrid mattresses stack up to other beds.

The IDLE Double Sided Hybrid offers a strong product lifespan, thanks to its flippable design; regular rotations can preserve the bed’s components and reduce sagging or indentations in the sleep surface. The mattress is available in two firmness settings, ‘Medium Firm’ (6) and ‘Firm’ (8), which makes it most suitable for back and stomach sleepers who weigh at least 130 pounds.
