Set up test

The Bear Hybrid mattress took just over a minute and a half to set up. Bear was a little heavy on the packaging and the mattress a bit heavy to pick up.  

So for our setup test, Bear Hybrid gets a 7 out of 10.

Motion Transfer Test

Part A - The Humans

The Bear Hybrid did an okay job of isolating motion, though our test subjects noted they could feel a decent amount of movement when the other rolled around. RJ and Asha gave it a collective score of 7.5.

Part B - The Wine

We got nervous there for a minute. The wine glass had some serious leaning to it! So for the wine test we gave the Bear Hybrid a 6.

So for a total motion transfer score, we gave Bear Hybrid a 7.75 out of 10.

Edge Support Test

Part A - The Shoe Test

Both RJ and Asha noticed some minor sag in the mattress. So the Bear Hybrid scored a 7 for the edge shoe test.

Part B - The Side Test

When RJ and Asha stretched out on the edge, they noticed the same problem – a little too much sag. So for the edge support side test, the Bear Hybrid scored a 7.5.

So Bear Hybrid gets a 8.5 out of 10 for edge support.

Pressure Relief Test

We saw a streak of red running from RJ’s shoulder down his side. So we gave him a 7 for pressure relief.

We saw a speck of red in Asha’s shoulders so we gave her an 8.

So for a total pressure relief score, Bear Hybrid gets a 7 out of 10.

Spine Alignment Test

The Bear Hybrid did a great job of keeping both RJ and Asha’s spines in alignment. They were nearly straight!

For spine alignment, Bear Hybrid gets a 8.5 out of 10.

Responsiveness Test

We had RJ and Asha lie in each sleeping position: side, stomach and back. As they changed positions and got settled in, we asked them to rate on a scale from one to ten how quickly and easily the mattress responded to their movement.

The Bear Hybrid hugs you in all the right places!

So Bear Hybrid gets a 9 out of 10 for responsiveness.

What Bear Hybrid customers have to say

  • “My husband and I love our bear hybrid mattress. My husband was having daily back pain upon waking with our old mattress so we decided to try the hybrid. We love it! He no longer complains of back pain and I am getting great sleep in it as well. It is firm but just the right amount of soft to get pressure relief. I would recommend to anyone needing a new mattress. So glad someone recommended Bear Mattress to us.” -Jenee
  • “We love our new Bear Hybrid mattress. It came exactly as we expected it to and was easy to open up. Just as the information says, it is in fact very heavy and really requires 2 people to open and set up. Make sure the box is where you want it first. It is extremely comfortable and has done wonders for mine and my husband’s backs. We would absolutely recommend this mattress to anyone who prefers a bit more support but also a nice soft surface. It is also very cool. It seems to somehow make it so body heat doesn’t radiate around us all night. Hope this is helpful for someone!” – Pamela
  • “We love our new Hybrid Bear mattress and have been sleeping really well each night! Five stars for sure!! After years and years of sleeping on a traditional king size bed, we are so happy we finally switched to the Hybrid Bear King Mattress. Our backs feel great and we wake up refreshed! We love it! Thank you Bear Mattress!” -Joan
