Meet Our Testing Team
- Side sleepers of all weights. Our sleep testers that prefer sleeping on their sides found the Signature Hybrid promoted spinal alignment, regardless of their body weight.
- Lightweight sleepers. Lightweight sleepers enjoyed a mix of support and pressure relief regardless of the position they slept in.
- People who sleep hot. Air flow through the coil layer combined with phase-change material in the cover make the Signature Hybrid sleep cool.
- Sleepers that share a bed with a partner of a different weight. Customers who opt for a king- or California king-sized mattress can customize the Signature Hybrid to have two firmness levels on the same mattress surface, one for each sleeper.
Not Recommended for...
- Very light sleepers that share a bed. This mattress does transfer motion and make some noise when bearing weight, so a partner’s movements could be disturbing to some sleepers.
Our Video Review
Our written review covers everything you need to know to decide if the Nest Bedding Signature Hybrid Mattress is for you. We know that some people need to see a mattress in action to feel comfortable making a decision, however. Watch our video to see the Signature Hybrid Mattress and learn more about how we tested it.
Our testing team conducted an extensive evaluation of the Signature Hybrid Mattress. Our review and rating process consists of three parts: in-house evaluation, external sleep testing, and data collection of verified owner experiences. To learn more about our review process, read our methodology here.
Our performance criteria and ratings for the bed are listed in the table below.
The Signature Hybrid Mattress excelled in many areas, such as edge support, temperature neutrality, durability, and off-gassing. It also rated highly with lightweight sleepers and side sleepers of all weights. Check out our in-depth ratings below.
Sleep Position Ratings
As part of our ratings process, we evaluated the Nest Bedding Signature Hybrid Mattress across different body types and preferred sleep positions. In addition to physical testing, we surveyed our sleep expert team and analyzed reviews from verified mattress owners and customers. Our findings are listed in the table below.
|Sleep Position||Less than 130 LBS||130 LBS - 230 LBS||Greater than 230 LBS|
How Is the Nest Bedding Signature Hybrid Mattress Constructed?
The Signature Hybrid Mattress cover is made of soft fabric quilted with phase-change material. Phase-change material changes from solid to liquid in response to heat, allowing the cover to dissipate body heat and promote cooling.
The Signature Hybrid Mattress contains three comfort layers: .4 inches of 4 PCF (pounds per cubic foot) gel-infused memory foam, 3 inches of 2.8 PCF Energex polyfoam, and 1 inch of 3 PCF SmartFlow polyfoam. These layers add softness and a conforming property to the mattress.
A zipper on the cover allows customers comfort layer versatility. If you purchase a Signature Hybrid Mattress and do not like the firmness level, you can remove a comfort layer and swap it out for a different one at no charge within the first 100 nights. For example, if you order the “plush” or soft mattress and find that it is too soft, you can switch to the “medium” by swapping out the comfort layer instead of having to exchange the entire mattress.
Customers may also buy new comfort layers over time to change the firmness of their mattress, extend its life, or both.
The support core of the Signature Hybrid Mattress comprises 8 inches of pocketed coils atop a 1-inch layer of 3 PCF polyfoam. The pocketed coils are zoned, which means the outer coils are lower gauge (thicker) and the inner coils are higher gauge (thinner).
Lower gauge coils are firmer than higher gauge, so having them around the perimeter of the mattress adds edge support. The higher gauge coils in the center of the mattress provide responsiveness and support to sleepers without being too firm.
The Signature Hybrid Mattress measures 13.5 inches thick, making it a high-profile mattress. Customers will need to purchase deep pocket sheets to fit it. This thickness allows the mattress to contain a robust 8-inch pocketed coil support core beneath a 4.4-inch comfort layer system.

What Are the Firmness and Feel Like?
The Nest Bedding Signature Hybrid is somewhat conforming, but more responsive than many mattresses that contain memory foam. Sleepers who prefer a mattress that “hugs” the body might not find the Signature Hybrid Mattress conforming enough and want to opt for a softer all-foam or hybrid mattress. The Signature Hybrid offers a mixed feeling between sleeping “in” and “on” the bed.
Since the Signature Hybrid comes in three firmness options, there is quite a bit of variation in terms of firmness. The medium (5.5) firmness will appeal to the majority of sleepers. Generally, lightweight sleepers will prefer the softest mattress, which rates 3 out of 10 on the firmness scale. The firm (7.5) is ideal for heavyweight sleepers, but some average weight sleepers who specifically like firm mattresses might also prefer it.
Next, let’s take a closer look at our performance ratings for the Nest Bedding Signature Hybrid Mattress. Each rating is based on findings from our internal and external testing teams, as well as experiences from verified Nest Bedding Signature Hybrid Mattress owners.
Nest Bedding mattresses have proven to be durable since the company’s 2011 launch, and the Signature Hybrid is no exception. With its coil support core and high-quality polyfoam layers, this mattress can be expected to last longer than the 6-7 years that are average for a mattress.
Hybrid mattresses generally last longer than all-foam mattresses since coils do not wear out as quickly as foam. Since the Signature Hybrid has a removable foam comfort layer, its life can be extended by purchasing a replacement comfort layer once yours wears out. Nest Bedding recommends flipping or rotating the comfort layer every 6 months, which can help keep the foam layers from wearing out too quickly.
To see how well the Signature Hybrid isolates motion, we asked two sleep testers to lie down next to each other on the mattress at the same time. One rolled around while the other noticed how much motion they felt transfer across the surface of the mattress. We also asked our external sleep testers to report how much motion transfer they felt overnight.
Both internal and external sleep testers reported that the motion isolation is good, but not great. Some motion does transfer across the surface of the mattress when weight is put on the mattress, or a person moves around.
Our testing team noticed an odor upon opening the Signature Hybrid, but it was fairly mild. The odor dissipated within hours, and was completely gone about a day later. We rated the Signatured Hybrid “very good” in terms of off-gassing, because the smell wasn’t as strong or persistent as that emitted from many mattresses.
Off-gassing is the result of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) being released from a manufactured product into the air. Polyfoam and memory foam are known to off-gas more than other mattress components. Since the Signature Hybrid has 8 inches of coils, it allows more airflow to help remove off-gassed VOCs more quickly than all-foam mattresses.
We evaluated the pressure relief provided by the Signature Hybrid by putting a sensory pad across the surface of the mattress that measures pressure build-up. As our sleep testers of different weights lay on the mattress, we monitored our pressure mapping tools to see if and where there were pressure points.
The Signature Hybrid provided good pressure relief for all of our sleepers, though some experienced pressure build-up around the shoulders and hips. It isn’t as pressure relieving as many all-foam mattresses, or hybrid mattresses with more conforming foam layers. Pressure relief is usually an important mattress quality for customers that experience joint pain.
Our internal and external testers rated the Signature Hybrid highly in terms of temperature neutrality, finding that it didn’t trap heat during the night.
Foam layers and memory foam in particular are known for trapping heat, but the Signature Hybrid includes several elements that off-set this tendency. The pocketed coil layer allows airflow through the mattress, which can cool the layers above it. Also, the Signature Hybrid has phase-change material quilted into its cover. Phase-change material reacts to body heat in a way that is designed to pull heat away from the body. Additionally, the memory foam used in the mattress is infused with gel, which is designed to sleep cooler.
Our testers evaluated edge support in the Signature Hybrid by sitting on the edge of the mattress to see how much it sinks. They also lay near the edge of the bed and reported whether they experienced a sensation of “roll-off,” a problem that occurs when a mattress has poor edge support.
The Signature Hybrid performed very well in terms of edge support. Most sleepers will feel comfortable sleeping near the edge of the bed without risk of rolling off, which expands the surface area that can be used for sleeping. Hybrid mattresses often have superior edge support due to the firmness of their coil layer.
Our internal and external testers found that although the Signature Hybrid Mattress is not loud in response to weight and movement, it also isn’t a silent mattress. Most sleepers won’t be bothered by the slight sound that comes from the mattress, but light sleepers who share a bed might.
Generally, all-foam mattresses tend to be the most quiet. Coils and innersprings can squeak and creak, creating sound as people roll over or get on or off the bed.
The Signature Hybrid Mattress rates very good for sex because it is a fairly responsive mattress with strong edge support. Responsive mattresses tend to have “bounce” that facilitates movement, whereas more conforming mattresses can inhibit movement when their foam layers sink too deeply.
Strong edge support allows for full use of the mattress’ surface and makes it less likely the edge of the bed will fold or buckle, causing slippage. Although the Signature Hybrid is pretty quiet, it may make a little bit of noise during sex.
Now, let’s discuss the ratings we gave the Signature Hybrid Mattress.
There is no universally ideal firmness or thickness for a mattress because different people have different preferences. A sleeper’s body weight and preferred sleep position greatly influences how they perceive a mattress. For that reason, we evaluated the Signature Hybrid using sleep testers of varying body weights and position preferences.
Lightweight Sleepers – Less than 130 lbs.
Across the board, our lightweight sleep testers rated the Signature Hybrid Mattress highly. Regardless of if they sleep on their stomachs, backs, or sides, lightweight sleepers felt this mattress provides a good mix of conforming and support. Lightweight side sleepers enjoyed spinal alignment on the mattress, and lightweight back sleepers experienced adequate lumbar support.
The majority of lightweight sleepers will prefer the soft (3) mattress option, though some will prefer medium (5.5). This preference is partially related to a person’s weight, and partially related to how they want the mattress to feel. In addition to being softer, the soft mattress option is also more conforming.
Average Weight Sleepers – 130 to 230 lbs.
Average-weight back sleepers rated the Signature Hybrid “excellent” because of the mix of support and pressure relief it provides. They experienced adequate lumbar support and didn’t develop any pressure points while lying on the mattress. Most average-weight sleepers prefer the medium (5.5) firmness option, though those toward either end of the weight range might prefer the soft (3) or firm (7.5).
Average-weight side sleepers also found comfort in the Signature Hybrid, which promoted spinal alignment in this group. Of the average-weight sleepers, those who sleep on their stomachs enjoyed the Signature Hybrid the least.
Heavyweight Sleepers – More than 230 lbs.
In the heavyweight group, those who prefer to sleep on their sides liked the Signature Hybrid the most. They experienced spinal alignment and a mix of support and pressure relief. Overall, heavyweight sleepers prefer the firm (7.5) option, though some sleepers in this group might prefer the medium (5.5).
Heavyweight sleepers who sleep on their backs or stomachs found the Signature Hybrid to be good, but not exceptional. Our pressure mapping tools found that heavyweight sleepers did experience a little pressure in spots, although it was nothing major that would cause pain.

How Does the Nest Bedding Signature Hybrid Mattress Compare to Other Beds?
Comparing mattresses is an important part of mattress shopping. There are so many similar models available, it can be difficult to determine which mattress is the best for you. Here, we discuss the similarities and differences between the Signature Hybrid and similar mattresses.
Nest Bedding Signature Hybrid vs. Nest Bedding Signature Series Flippable
The Signature Series Mattress is another offering from Nest Bedding. It differs from the Signature Hybrid in two major ways. The Signature Series Mattress is all-foam, so it doesn’t contain a pocketed coil layer like the Signature Hybrid does. This makes the Signature Series more conforming and pressure-relieving, quieter, and better at isolating motion. It also makes the bed less temperature neutral, and less strong in terms of edge support.
The second major difference is that the Signature Series mattress is flippable, allowing customers to choose between medium (5.5) and firm (7.5) firmness levels within the same bed. Customers must choose a single firmness level when purchasing the Signature Hybrid. The Signature Hybrid comes in soft (3), medium (5.5), and firm (7.5), opening up another firmness option that will appeal most to lightweight sleepers.
Nest Bedding Signature Hybrid vs. Nest Bedding Hybrid Latex
In addition to the Signature Hybrid, Nest Bedding offers a Hybrid Latex Mattress. Like the Signature Hybrid, the Hybrid Latex contains both pocketed coils and polyfoam layers. Unlike the Signature Hybrid, the Hybrid Latex also contains a 3-inch latex layer. Both mattresses are available in soft, medium, and firm firmness options, which can make it difficult for shoppers to determine which one to buy.
The Hybrid Latex Mattress costs about two hundred dollars more than the Signature Hybrid at each size, making it a less attractive option for budget-conscious shoppers. Latex is more responsive than foam, so the Hybrid Latex is a better option for sleepers who want a bouncier mattress and a stronger sensation of sleeping “on” rather than “in” the mattress. The Hybrid Latex is also a good option for eco-conscious consumers since latex is a natural material and the mattress cover is made of organic cotton and wool.
Nest Bedding Signature Hybrid vs. Nest Bedding All Latex
Nest Bedding also offers an All Latex Mattress, which comes in soft, medium, and firm just like the Signature Hybrid. Since the All Latex Mattress is 100 percent latex, it has a very different feel than the Signature Hybrid, which contains foam layers and is somewhat conforming. Latex is responsive, so this mattress is bouncy and does not “hug” the body. The All Latex Mattress might be attractive to eco-conscious shoppers since latex is a natural material.
Price is a major differentiating factor between the All Latex and Signature Hybrid Mattresses. The All Latex Mattress is available in two options: natural latex and certified organic latex. The natural latex option costs a few hundred dollars more than the Signature Hybrid at every size. The certified organic latex options costs significantly more at each size.
Nest Bedding Signature Hybrid vs. WinkBed
The WinkBed Mattress is available in four firmness options: “soft” (4.5), “luxury firm” (6.5), “firmer” (7.5), and “plus” (8). The “luxury firm” option (6.5) is firmer than the Signature Hybrid medium (5.5). The soft option (4.5) is firmer than the soft or “plush” Signature Hybrid Mattress, which rates 3 out of 10 on the firmness scale. With differing firmness levels, the WinkBed provides three additional firmness options to customers who need something a little softer or firmer than the three Signature Hybrid firmness options.
Like the Signature Hybrid, the WinkBed is a hybrid mattress that contains both pocketed coil and polyfoam layers. Both mattresses are a mixture of responsive and conforming. The WinkBed is slighter thicker than the 13.5-inch thick Signature Hybrid at 14.5 inches. The Signature Hybrid and WinkBed fall in the same price range, though the WinkBed Plus costs more at every size.
Nest Bedding Signature Hybrid vs. Saatva
The Saatva Mattress is a coil-on-coil innerspring mattress containing two pocketed coil layers, polyfoam, and memory foam. Like the Signature Hybrid, the Saatva comes in three firmness options: medium-soft (4), medium-firm (6), and firm (7.5). The medium-soft and medium-firm choices could be useful to sleepers who need something slightly firmer than the Signature Hybrid’s soft (3) or medium (5.5) offerings.
Both mattresses are a mix of conforming and responsive, though the Saatva feels more responsive because it has more pocketed coils and less foam. The Saatva comes in 11.5- and 14.5-inch profile options, compared to the Signature Hybrid, which measures 13.5 inches thick. The 11.5-inch thickness option falls into the average range, so customers that opt for it won’t have to purchase deep pocket sheets, which are required for the Signature Hybrid and the 14.5-inch thick Saatva.
Nest Bedding Signature Hybrid vs. Brooklyn Bedding Signature
Like the Nest Bedding Signature Hybrid, the Brooklyn Bedding Signature is a hybrid mattress available in three firmness levels. The firmness level of the Brooklyn Bedding Signature soft slightly varies from the Signature Hybrid soft at 3.5 compared to 3 out of 10 on the firmness scale. The firmness levels of the medium and firm options are identical across brands.
The Brooklyn Bedding Signature has a similar feel to the Nest Bedding Signature Hybrid, in that it is both responsive and conforming. The Brooklyn Bedding Signature rates a bit higher at isolating motion and relieving pressure. At 11.5 inches thick, the Brooklyn Bedding Signature is an average-profile mattress that does not require deep pocket sheets.
