We seriously can’t stop talking about this mattress! Keep reading our in-depth review to see everything we love about the Casper Hybrid mattress.

Casper Hybrid Mattress Highlights

The new Casper Hybrid Mattress, launched in April 2019, is the product of 5 extensive years of research and design by the engineers at Casper Labs. The R&D team at Casper was curious to see what would happen if they added springs to the award-winning original Casper mattress design. The result? A new mattress model that struck gold.

Striking the perfect balance between the contour of memory foam and the bounce of pocket-coils, the Casper Hybrid offers the best of both worlds when it comes to superior comfort and support. This advanced design enhances durability and increases edge support.

Additional Highlights
  • The Casper Hybrid offers Zoned Support™, meaning a unique foam layer offers varying levels of support across different regions of the body —  using a softer foam to cradle the shoulder and a firmer foam to support the hips.
  • The Casper Hybrid earned outstanding scores in responsiveness, motion transfer and spine alignment when in the mattress lab.

Casper Hybrid Mattress Review

Take a deeper look at our review of the Casper Hybrid mattress to see how it performed in our testing and help you determine if this could be the mattress for you.

After spending a few hours researching, unboxing, testing, photographing, and writing about the Casper Hybrid, we were truly impressed! Check out our favorite things about the Casper Hybrid mattress to learn why we love and why we’re sure you will too.

Zoned Support for Spine Alignment and Comfort

All body parts are not created equal. Some areas of the body need more support than others. The Zoned Support™ layer that you’ll find in the Casper Hybrid targeted support to different regions of the body. The Casper Hybrid is built with softer foam under the shoulders to help cradle pressure points and firmer foam under the hips to keep your spine in alignment.

The Casper Hybrid did a phenomenal job keeping the spines of our tester aligned. There was only a slight upward curve towards the base of the neck.

Grade-A Responsiveness

The Casper Hybrid crushed the Mattress Advisor responsiveness test – it scored a 9.5. When you think about mattress shopping and determining what mattress feels “comfortable” to you, that’s responsiveness.

How well a mattress adapts and contours to changes in your body position while you sleep directly impacts how quickly you will become comfortable enough to fall asleep. The Casper Hybrid proved in our mattress testing it offers first class comfort by scoring so highly in our responsiveness test.

Impressive Motion Control

If you sleep with a partner or a pet, you don’t want to wake up every time they move around during the night. That’s why motion transfer control is so critical to a good night’s sleep.

The Casper Hybrid scored a solid 9 for our motion isolation score, meaning you can sleep on this mattress without being disturbed by your bed partners. Want to see for yourself? Check out our wine test video below.

5 Years of Thoughtful Design that Shows

From user testing to researching the latest sleep science technology, the Casper Hybrid mattress is one of the best of the best online mattress models we’ve seen! The team at Casper used data collected over a timespan of five years to inform the design of the Casper Hybrid mattress.

The Casper Hybrid mattress was designed and engineered in-house by the Research and Development team at Casper Labs so all of the layers work together to provide a supportive and comfortable sleeping surface. All this hard work truly paid off to create one great hybrid mattress.

Customer Reviews on the Casper Hybrid

We thoroughly tested the Casper Hybrid in our Mattress Lab to help you decide if it could be the right mattress for you. But if you won’t take our word for it, check out what actual customers had to say after sleeping on the Casper Hybrid.

From customers with back pain

  • “I absolutely did not believe I would be sleeping this great. I’ve had low back pain from my mattress for over 6 years. I’ve tried so many different things and can’t believe how good I am sleeping! Now I understand why people look forward to getting in their beds at night. Finally, a comfortable sleeping experience!” – Tyler
  • “We both suffered with back pain and thought we were just getting older. After all our mattress had been a $4000 adjustable mattress. We hurt when sleeping and when getting up. Then I decided we were not THAT OLD, so I did my research of all the mattress sites, Consumer Reports and on and on. I mean who wants to pay thousands only to find it was a waste of money twice? All sources pointed to Casper so I bought the mattress for a Christmas gift for my bride. It is the greatest gift I ever got her – and me. The very first night we slept soundly all night. We awoke refreshed and neither of us has had any backache since.” – Wayne T.

On the Casper Hybrid’s Comfort

  • “Best mattress I have ever owned. I recently moved into a NYC loft studio which only had room for a small Twin XL mattress. As I am a larger individual (6 ft, 260 lbs) I was not looking forward to downsizing from a Queen. However, my new Casper is so supportive and comfortable, I don’t need the extra room – I wake up in the exact same position I fall asleep in – no more tossing and turning!” – John S.
  • “This is the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. It firm and soft at the same time. It’s just right, I don’t toss and turn but I sleep all night. I love it.” – Jed
  • “I have never been in such a comfortable bed!! My partner and I both love it, and never thought we’d agree on a bed. I enjoy a more firm bed and he enjoys soft, but this we both love!” – Angelica

From Happy Couples

  • “My wife and I both love the bed. I usually prefer a much firmer mattress and my wife prefers a soft mattress, yet we’re both satisfied. The bed was easy to unpack and within minutes was ready for sleeping. Definitely the best value in mattresses!” – Sam K.
  • “Casper has been the best thing to ever happen to us! My husband prefers firm, I prefer plush, and this is the best of both worlds. At first, it did seem too firm for me, but by night 3, I don’t even think I moved! My neck problems have solved themselves, I am waking up feeling more refreshed, and I don’t toss and turn like I used to!! My ONLY complaint, is the mattress is skinny – we are used to our pillowtop mattress, so we lost about 5 inches in height of the bed – easily fixed by getting a bigger (deeper) boxsprings, but that is literally my ONLY complaint. Just buy it. You won’t be disappointed!” – Lindsey

A Look Inside the Casper Hybrid Mattress

The engineers behind the Casper Hybrid mattress explored what would happen if they added a pocket-coil spring system to the original Casper mattress design. Needless to say, they struck gold with this combination. The new Casper Hybrid mattress is made with four premium layers of foam and springs:

  • 1.5” Breathable Open-Cell Foam: The top layer of the Casper Hybrid mattress is made of breathable memory foam that provides responsive comfort.
  • 1.5” Pressure Relieving Memory Foam: The following foam layer is designed to cradle joints and offer additional pressure-relieving comfort.
  • 1.5” Zoned Support™ Foam Layer: This unique layer of the Casper Hybrid mattress is comprised of a single foam layer that offers two different firmness levels at different areas of the body. All body parts are not created equal. Some areas need more support than others. The Zoned Support™ layer offers softer foam under the shoulder to help cradle pressure points and firmer foam under the hips to keep your spine in alignment.
  • 7.0” Foundation of Durable, Pocket-Coil Spring System: The final layer of the Casper Hybrid mattress is the new pocket-coil spring system designed to provide active support and motion isolation. Below the spring system is a sliver of supportive base foam that reinforces the entire structure.

How the Casper Hybrid Supports Different Sleeping Positions

Side Sleepers

The Casper Hybrid is a great choice for side sleepers. It’s Zoned Support™ helps cradle the shoulders while keeping the hips supported so they are in alignment with the spine. The medium firmness of the Casper Hybrid is also conducive for side sleepers allowing more give to accommodate for the curvature of the body.

Back Sleepers

This mattress would also accommodate back sleepers as well. Back sleepers need a mattress that offers support and contour in equal measure, to keep your spine in a neutral position. The support is what holds up your spine and neck, while the contour is what allows your bum and other curvy parts to rest peacefully. The Casper Hybrid offers these two qualities in tandem, making it a good choice for those who sleep on their back.

Stomach Sleepers

Stomach sleepers are more difficult to accommodate for, but the Casper Hybrid does. Stomach sleepers need a mattress with a soft, more responsive top to keep pressure off the pelvis, chest, and shoulders. However, the also need a mattress that is firm and supportive enough to keep their spine aligned rather than arched. The Casper Hybrid offers both superior contour and support to take care of stomach sleepers.

Casper Hybrid Mattress FAQs

What's the difference between the Original Casper mattress and the Casper Hybrid?

The primary difference between the original Casper mattress and the new Casper Hybrid mattress is that the original Casper is a memory foam mattress and the new Casper is a hybrid (made with foam and pocket coils). The difference in materials and construction impacts the firmness, responsiveness, motion transfer, pressure relief, and support of each mattress. Compare the original Casper and the Casper Hybrid side by side.

What's the difference between the Casper Hybrid mattress and the Casper Wave Hybrid mattress?

The Wave Hybrid is a more expensive model than the Casper Hybrid mattress. Each model is made with different foams and the Wave Hybrid has an additional layer of foam that increases its thickness by one inch.

Does the Casper Hybrid mattress sleep hot?

The Casper Hybrid mattress is designed to sleep cool. This is achieved by using open-cell memory foam that provides a way for heat to escape, rather than getting trapped. Additionally, pocket coils naturally promote airflow because there is space in between each spring. This also helps promote breathability. That being said, the Casper Hybrid is still partially a foam mattress so it may not sleep as cool as an innerspring or latex mattress. How hot you get at night also depends on your personal preferences and body type. If you do find that the Casper mattress sleeps too hot for you, you can always return it within your 100-night risk-free trial period.

Can I try out the Casper Hybrid mattress before I buy it?

You sure can! The Casper Hybrid mattress can be found at a number of retail locations throughout the US. You can even book a trial where you can take a nap on a Casper Hybrid mattress, talk to a sleep specialist, or just see the mattress for yourself.

How long can the Casper Hybrid mattress stay in the box?

You can keep your Casper Hybrid mattress in its shipping box for up to three months. However, the sooner you unbox it, the better.

How do I know if the Casper Hybrid mattress is right for me?

The Casper Hybrid appeals to all sleeping positions and lifestyles, so you’re likely to love it! The best part about buying a Casper mattress is the 100-night trial period. You can personally test your mattress for 100 nights to decide if the Casper Hybrid is right for you. Keep in mind, it can take up to 30 days to fully break in and adjust to your new mattress. Particularly if you are used to sleeping on a traditional innerspring mattress, your body will need time to adjust to the new mattress feel.
