The EcoSleep Hybrid mattress is a special offering from Brooklyn Bedding, a company with decades of experience in mattress design and manufacturing.

Brooklyn Bedding has a diverse product line of dependable and affordable mattresses, and the EcoSleep Hybrid stands out based on its natural materials and reversible firmness design.

The EcoSleep mattress features Joma wool, organic cotton, and three layers made of natural latex that has been certified by the Rainforest Alliance. Those latex layers sit on either side of a coil-based support core. Each side of the mattress has a different firmness level — medium or firm — giving customers the liberty of easily switching the bed’s feel.

Because of both its materials and performance, the EcoSleep Hybrid is an intriguing option, especially for eco-conscious shoppers. We’ll examine the ins-and-outs of this mattress, including its pricing and construction, to help determine if it’s the best bet for your needs.

EcoSleep Mattress Review Breakdown

The EcoSleep mattress is 11.5 inches tall and has a hybrid construction that takes advantage of both innerspring coils and latex. A central part of its design is the ability to sleep on either side of the mattress.

The interior construction involves four layers:

  • 1.5 inches of moderately firm natural latex
  • 1.5 inches of moderately firm natural latex
  • 6 inches of pocketed innerspring coils
  • 1.5 inches of firm natural latex

The side with two latex layers has a medium feel, rating as a 5 on the 1-10 firmness scale. The side with only one latex layer is firm, or about a 7 on the same scale. This reversible design allows customers to alter the bed’s feel by simply flipping the mattress over.

On both sides, the latex material provides a blend of comfort, support, and bounce. Latex has a modest ability to contour to the body, compressing to deliver cushioning but without excessive sinking. When weight is removed, the latex rapidly rebounds, giving it a bouncy feel that makes it easy to move around on the mattress.

The support core, which bolsters both sides of the EcoSleep Hybrid, is a six-inch layer of innerspring coils. They have a pocketed design, meaning that each coil is encased in cloth. The coils themselves aren’t attached to one another; instead, they are connected by stitching the cloth sleeves together. As a result, each coil has more freedom of motion to generate support where the body most needs it.

The coils contribute added durability and sturdiness to the mattress while supplementing the significant bounce and moderate pressure relief that comes from latex.

The cover is composed of a blend of organic cotton and natural Joma wool. These materials are soft and very breathable, allowing the cover to effectively wick moisture. In this way, the cover furthers the solid temperature regulation that comes from latex and the well-ventilated coils.

All of the latex in the mattress is certified by the Rainforest Alliance, a non-profit organization focused on sustainability and conservation of forests. The materials in the cover are also naturally derived, making the EcoSleep Hybrid a more eco-friendly option than many other mattresses.

Prices and Sizing

For a hybrid mattress with a reversible design and natural materials, the EcoSleep Hybrid has a competitive price point. In fact, its price is less than many other hybrids without these features.

The EcoSleep mattress is available in all six standard mattress sizes. Brooklyn Bedding can also make mattresses to custom sizes.

While the exact weight of the mattress is not listed, given the heft of both coils and latex, these mattresses tend to be heavy and may require two to three people to move them safely.

The dimensions and retail price for each size of the EcoSleep Hybrid are listed in the following table. In many cases, Brooklyn Bedding offers promo codes or sales events that provide a discount on these sticker prices, making the EcoSleep mattress an even better value.

Mattress Performance

Motion Isolation

The EcoSleep Hybrid mattress rates as about average for motion isolation. With less contouring and much more bounce than memory foam, latex is prone to transferring motion across its surface. The springiness from the coil support system can increase this motion transfer, although the independent movement of pocketed coils helps to reduce the total amount of motion that they transfer. Of the two sides of EcoSleep Hybrid, the medium side will have better motion isolation because the latex is softer and compresses more under the body.

Overall, the average amount of motion isolation from the EcoSleep hybrid is enough to avoid major sleep disturbances for most couples. However, people who are easily awoken and share a bed with someone who moves around frequently in bed may prefer a mattress with higher ratings in this category.

Pressure Relief

Latex offers moderate pressure relief and drives the EcoSleep Hybrid’s roughly average rating in this category. As a material, latex has the ability to lightly tailor and contour to the body, but it tends to have a denser feel without as much hug as many foams. Similarly, the pocketed innerspring coils add a touch of extra cushioning.

For many sleepers, this modest level of pressure relief is sufficient to sleep comfortably and with proper spinal alignment. For other sleepers, though, especially people with sharp pressure points, the EcoSleep Hybrid may not deliver the kind of deep conforming that may be necessary to accommodate their high-impact zones.

The medium side of the EcoSleep Hybrid usually provides more pressure relief because of its softer latex materials and thicker profile. On the firm side, the latex is only 1.5 inches thick, limiting its ability to adapt to more pronounced pressure points.

Temperature Control

Temperature control is a definite strength of the EcoSleep Hybrid mattress.

A benefit of latex is that it does not hold onto as much heat as most foam materials, and because it has less sink, especially on the firm side of the EcoSleep mattress, there’s plenty of ability for air to pass over the skin and cool it down. In the support core, air can flow easily around the coils, keeping hot air from building up in the mattress. The mattress cover also improves temperature regulation, since the organic wool and Joma wool are naturally breathable and able to pull moisture away from the skin so that it can evaporate, facilitating the body’s natural cooling mechanisms.

All of these elements combine to make the EcoSleep Hybrid a solid pick for people who want to avoid sleeping hot.

Edge Support

The EcoSleep Hybrid is a good match for people who like to sit or sleep near the edge of their bed. The density and durability of natural latex helps keep it from giving out around the exterior, and that effect is bolstered by the responsiveness of the latex as well. WIth a six-inch innerspring layer, the mattress has a robust and reliable support core that boosts structural integrity around the edge.

As the latex is thicker and softer on the medium side, you can expect more compression of the latex and slightly less edge support compared to the firm side, which rates as excellent for maintaining stability around the perimeter of the bed.

Ease of Movement

If you want to be able to easily get in and get out of your mattress while also moving easily on top of it, the EcoSleep Hybrid is an appealing option.

On both the medium and firm side, the moderate contouring means you don’t sag too far into the bed. In addition, the bouncy latex layers give you momentum when moving on the bed, ensuring that you won’t feel stuck in place. The springiness of the mattress is furthered by the coils in the support core.

While there is a slightly more ease of movement on the firm side, both sides of the EcoSleep Hybrid get high marks for facilitating effortless movement on its surface.

Sex

Few mattresses are more conducive to a vibrant sex life than the EcoSleep Hybrid. The bounciness that comes from the latex layers and innerspring coils enables all types of motion without a second thought. By avoiding excess sink, there’s no risk of feeling trapped or stuck in one position, and as an added benefit, the latex and cover are just soft enough to provide comfort and cushion the body during intimate activities. The breathable cover is also soft and smooth, rounding out the benefits of the EcoSleep mattress for sex.

Off-Gassing

Most customers report minimal odors from the EcoSleep Hybrid. Relative to many mattress materials, especially foams, the components in this mattress cause considerably less off-gassing of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Additionally, the natural ingredients are less inclined to give off bothersome smells. In most cases, any new mattress smell from the EcoSleep Hybrid is minor and fades away within a couple of days without causing much, if any, disturbance.

Sleeping Style and Body Weight

Choosing a mattress requires carefully considering your individual needs. While there are many considerations to account for, your sleeping style and body weight are two factors that are central to finding your mattress match.

Side Sleepers:
The majority of side sleepers get solid support from the EcoSleep Hybrid mattress.

Latex offers just enough contouring for most side sleepers to make sure that their hips and shoulders have the cushioning that’s needed to minimize impact and promote healthy alignment of the spine. The individually-wrapped coils improve this tailored support and keep side sleepers from pushing too far into the bed in their high-pressure zones.

Side sleepers over 230 pounds frequently prefer the firm side of the EcoSleep Hybrid because it protects against excessive sinking into the mattress. Side sleepers between 130 and 230 pounds typically opt for the medium side to get a touch of extra contouring, though the firm side can deliver quality support as well.

Side sleepers under 130 pounds should find that the medium side of the EcoSleep mattress to be just right for their needs. With their lighter weight that puts less pressure on the bed, they’ll need a softer feel to get the full benefit of latex’s moderate contouring.

Back Sleepers:
The EcoSleep Hybrid mattress is a strong option for people who sleep on their back.

Back sleepers need a durable and relatively firm sleeping surface that keeps their midsection from dipping too far downward and out of line with the rest of their body. At the same time, they need light contouring to cradle the natural curve in the lumbar spine.

The characteristics of latex make it well-suited to meet these needs. Latex has the ability to softly cushion the torso of back sleepers, accommodating the lower back without sagging too much.

The firmness options of the EcoSleep mattress also fit the needs of most back sleepers. The firm side tends to be best for back sleepers who weigh over 230 pounds and need a slightly harder sleeping surface. Either side may work for back sleepers under 230 pounds depending on their comfort preference.

Stomach Sleepers:
Most stomach sleepers find the EcoSleep Hybrid to be a quality option that can effectively meet their sleep needs.

When lying face down, the area around the stomach can sag into the mattress, contorting the spine into a U-shape. To avoid this, a firmer mattress is typically the best bet for stomach sleepers. Light contouring also helps people on their stomach from feeling swallowed up by their bed.

The firm side of the EcoSleep mattress offers stomach sleepers the right amount of firmness and conforming. The combination of latex and coils is firm and bouncy enough to prevent unwanted sagging around the abdomen and to limit any sense of feeling suffocated by the mattress.

Most stomach sleepers opt for the firm side, but stomach sleepers under 130 pounds who place less pressure on the top layers of the mattress may also find the medium side to be more comfortable.
