Who Is the Bowery Hybrid Mattress Best for?
|Bowery Hybrid is best for:||Bowery Hybrid may not be best for:|
The Brooklyn Bowery Hybrid is a top budget mattress with high-quality construction. It’s built with open-cell memory foam and pocket coils that combine the contouring of quilted gel memory foam with targeted pressure point relief. The Bowery is a hybrid mattress that gives great bang for your buck.
What We Love about the Brooklyn Bowery Hybrid
- Not only has it been featured as one of our best hybrid mattresses, it’s also one of our best mattresses for the money.
- The combination of pocket coils with memory foam provides a combination of targeted pressure point relief and contouring comfort – a perfect balance.
- If you want to see the Brooklyn Bowery mattress for yourself (and live in Arizona, Utah, Michigan, or Minnesota) you can visit one of their showroom locations. Even though they have retail locations, Brooklyn Bedding still owns the manufacturing process from start to finish and sells their mattresses directly to customers.

|Mattress Advisor Test||Score (Out of 10)|
⭐Total Score for the Bowery Hybrid Mattress: 8.7/10⭐
Bowery Hybrid Performance Highlights
- Medium firmness that supports most kinds of sleepers.
- Pocketed coils do a great job of isolating motion.
- Because it is a hybrid, airflow is not impeded, which results in a cooler night’s sleep.
- The Bowery Hybrid is not available in different firmness levels like other Brooklyn Bedding mattresses.
- The Bowery scored an 8/10 on responsiveness, which definitely isn’t a bad score, but combination sleepers may want to consider higher-scoring mattresses in this category.
The Bowery Hybrid mattress performed very well in the Mattress Advisor motion transfer test — it scored an 8.75/10. This makes the Bowery Hybrid a great option for couples! Given its affordable price tag, the Bowery Hybrid would make a great mattress for couples just starting out who may be on a strict budget.
Spine alignment is one of our major tests we conduct. Why? Because your sleeping posture matters just as much as your waking posture.
Keeping your spine aligned is key to good health and a good night’s sleep. Our sleep subjects’ spines were in good alignment while on the Bowery Hybrid. We saw no major dips in their back while on the mattress.
You want a mattress that evenly distributes your body weight so that you avoid waking up with pains in the pressure points like your hips and shoulders. We measure pressure relief with a pressure mapper. Check out the images of our test subjects below to see how well the Bowery Hybrid performed in this area. (Hint: Blues and greens are good; reds are bad.)
Unlike other Brooklyn Bedding mattresses, the Bowery Hybrid is only available in one firmness option. Thankfully, it is a 5 on the firmness scale; a universally appealing score that just about all sleepers should find ideal.
What Sleeping Positions Does the Bowery Hybrid Support?
- Back sleepers will love the spine alignment and medium firmness.
- Side sleepers and combination sleepers won’t have any trouble sleeping on the Bowery Hybrid, but if really strong responsiveness and pressure relief are what you’re after then there may be better options for you – maybe just not at this price point.
- On the other hand, we wouldn’t recommend this mattress for most stomach sleepers because of its medium firmness.
Does the Brooklyn Bowery Hybrid Sleep Hot?
Not at all. Thanks to an innerspring layer and gel memory foam layers, the Bowery Hybrid does a great job of circulating the heat that it absorbs from your body. We give it an 8.5/10 cooling score.
How Much Weight Does the Bowery Hybrid Support?
The queen-size Bowery Hybrid can support up to 700 lbs, or 350 lbs on each side of the bed. Just about all body types are supported.
What Foundations or Bed Frames Can be Used?
The Bowery Hybrid works on any type of supported base that has minimal to no flex. This includes box springs, platform bases, slats, and even the floor.
What is the Brooklyn Bowery Hybrid Made of?
The Bowery Hybrid mattress has three core layers and a gel memory foam quilted top:
- 1″ Gel Memory Foam Topper: this top layer features a quilted layer of gel memory foam keeps you cool and responds quickly to body movements so you don’t sink in too far.
- 2” Comfort Layer: the second layer of the Bowery Hybrid is made of two inches of comfort foam that features open-cell technology designed to promote breathability.
- 6” Pocket Coil Core: the coil core of the Bowery Hybrid evenly distributes body weight and minimizes the effects of motion transfer.
- 1” Base Support Foam: made of high-density support foam and reinforces the pocket coil layer.

Unboxing the Bowery Hybrid Mattress

It took us exactly one minute and twenty seconds to unbox the Bowery Hybrid mattress. This mattress was very light and easy to handle. There was only a slight off-gassing odor, but lots of plastic to cut through. The Bowery Hybrid puffed to its full size almost instantly.
