One of the most affordable mattress brands we’ve ever reviewed is back with a new mattress model, the Tuft & Needle Hybrid—their most supportive mattress yet. Want to know how this mattress measures up in our lab testing? It’s all in this comprehensive review. We’ll go over the mattress and brand highlights, test scores, and all other purchase information you need to know.

Tuft & Needle Hybrid Highlights

  • The comfort layer of this bed is made with their T&N Adaptive foam. This soft layer hugs your hips and shoulders, relieving any pressure⁠—especially great for side sleepers.
  • On top of that, their foam is infused with carbon fiber, a material that keeps foam breakdown at bay, so you can sleep comfortably for longer on a mattress that won’t sag.
  • What makes the Tuft & Needle Hybrid different from the original model is the addition of a spring layer. These individual pocketed springs keep you supported and respond to your movements without squeaking.
  • For the rest of 2020, Tuft & Needle will donate a sheet set to Sleep in Heavenly Peace with every purchase of the hybrid mattress!

Tuft & Needle Hybrid Testing Highlights

The Tuft & Needle Hybrid mattress is their new model that works for all types of sleepers. It has medium firmness with a luxurious pillow top cover for softness and bouncy pocketed coils for firm support. Let’s check out some other highlights of the T&N Hybrid.

Ultra Pressure Relief

The foam/spring combo material in the Tuft & Needle Hybrid offers superior pressure relief in your hips and shoulders, a great feature for side sleepers. And when we say superior, we’re not kidding—it scored a 9.5 out of 10 in our test. Than means nearly no pressure was applied to the hips, back, and shoulders.

Check out our pressure map below. The green and blue means minimal pressure!

Impressive Spinal Alignment

While lying down to rest, you want your spine to be straight as possible to prevent back pain and soreness in the morning. The Tuft & Needle Hybrid did just that. The pillow top cover allowed the shoulders and hips to gently sink into the mattress, but not enough to mess up the straight line that goes from the base of the spine to the top of the neck.

Actively Responds to Your Movements

Combination sleepers love to move around at night to settle into their new position. They need a mattress that isn’t too firm that they can’t get comfortably, but that also isn’t too soft where they feel like they can’t move because they are stuck.

The pocketed coil springs in the Tuft & Needle Hybrid offer a bouncy responsiveness that doesn’t squeak. The mattress allows you to move comfortably and doesn’t disrupt your sleep as you do.

What to Watch Out For

Be aware that your Tuft & Needle Hybrid mattress may have a mild scent when you unbox it—this is normal and should go away within a few hours.

Tuft & Needle Mattress FAQs

How does the 100-night trial work?

After your Tuft & Needle Hybrid is delivered, you have 100 nights to decide if it’s the right fit for you. We recommend sleeping on it for at least 30 nights to get used to the feel of the mattress before returning. But if you’d still like to initiate that return, contact customer support at support@tn.com to start the process of getting a full refund.

Does Tuft & Needle offer any discounts for first responders?

Yep! Both first responders and Military member can claim 15% off of their Tuft & Needle Hybrid.

How long will it take for the Tuft & Needle Hybrid mattress to be delivered?

With free standard shipping, the expected timeline is anywhere in between 3-7 business days through FedEx Ground.

Is the Tuft & Needle Hybrid mattress eco-friendly?

All foams used in the Tuft & Needle Hybrid are CertiPUR-US® certified, meaning they are free from harmful chemicals and gasses, ozone depleters, PBDE flame retardants, heavy metals, formaldehyde, phthalates, and low VOC emissions for indoor air quality.

They are also UL GREENGUARD Gold certified for the entire Hybrid mattress. GREENGUARD certified products release fewer pollutants that can contribute to health issues like asthma. This GREENGUARD label ensures that the Tuft & Needle Hybrid mattress supports healthy indoor environments.

What does my warranty cover?

The 10 year-limited warranty on the Tuft & Needle Hybrid covers any manufacturing defects including compressions deeper than 3/4″, sagging, flaws in the foam causing it to split or crack, and cover defects, such as unraveling stitching—nothing due to normal wear and tear.

Does the Tuft & Needle Hybrid mattress need to be flipped?

No, the Tuft & Needle mattress is a single-sided design. To prolong the life of your mattress, we recommend that you rotate your mattress rather than flip it.
