Watch the video below to see how the Nolah Evolution performed when put to the test in the Sleep Foundation Lab.
As the name suggests, the Nolah Evolution Hybrid Mattress is a hybrid model, which means it combines foam and coils. It rates around 5 on the 10-point firmness scale, giving it a medium feel that’s in the middle of the average firmness preference range that sleepers typically prefer.
A quilted Euro-top cover cushions the surface of the bed. It contains 2 inches of foam padding for a plush feel. Thermally conductive ArcticTex fibers in this layer are engineered to draw heat away to help the sleeper maintain a more consistent temperature. The cover also has a 2-inch breathable gusset around the top edge of the bed to promote air circulation through the comfort layer.
The comfort layer consists of 2 inches of graphite-infused AirFoamICE polyfoam. This proprietary material is designed to draw heat away while cradling the body for pressure relief. A 2-inch layer of high-resilience polyfoam acts as the transition layer, separating the comfort system from the firmer core while adding support and responsiveness.
Patented HDMax Eco Support Coils make up the support core. This layer measures 8 inches thick. Each coil is pocketed so that it can move independently without excessive motion transfer. Zoning makes the head and foot of the bed softer and the middle more supportive to promote healthy spinal alignment. A layer of polyfoam wraps around the outside of the coils for enhanced edge support, and a final 1-inch base layer of high-density polyfoam stabilizes the spring system.
The Nolah Evolution Hybrid Mattress consists of five main layers. A quilted Euro-top cover contains 2 inches of foam padding. The comfort layer uses graphite-infused polyfoam, while the transition layer consists of high-resilience polyfoam. A zoned 8-inch pocketed coil support layer makes up the core. It rests on a 1-inch high-density polyfoam base.

The Nolah Evolution Hybrid Mattress falls just above the average price of most hybrid models. While it might cost more upfront, the investment may be justified by the mattress’ advanced design and generous company policies. Additionally, frequent promotions bring the cost down, so you may be able to purchase it at or below the average price for a hybrid model.

The Nolah Evolution Hybrid’s Euro-top cover and thick polyfoam comfort and transition layers give a side sleeper’s curves ample room to sink in. This can spread out their weight to reduce pressure accumulation that often occurs around the hips and shoulders. The coil layer’s zoning can also help keep a side sleeper’s spine well aligned.
Given its medium feel, the Nolah Evolution Hybrid is likely to be especially comfortable for side sleepers who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds, gently shaping to their hips and shoulders without sagging. The bed won’t have as much hug for side sleepers who weigh under 130 pounds since they won’t sink in as deeply, but they should still experience notable pressure relief and support. If the side sleeper weighs over 230 pounds, their hips and shoulders may sink in farther than ideal, but this shouldn’t be significant enough to create serious discomfort.
Back sleeping keeps the spine close to its natural alignment, so individuals who favor this sleep position typically need a mattress that has enough give for their hips to sink in a bit without drooping. The Nolah Evolution Hybrid’s Euro-top cover and two layers of polyfoam contour and cushion the hips, while the zoning of its coil layer limits sinkage.
People who weigh under 130 pounds will likely get excellent support when lying on their backs. The medium feel should let their hips sink in just enough to keep their spines relatively straight. Back sleepers who weigh over 130 pounds may have more difficulty maintaining their spinal alignment. While the zoning in the coil layer limits sinkage, those in this weight group who carry much of their weight around their hips may still experience mild lower back pressure from their hips dipping too deeply into the bed.
Lower back pain often occurs when the weight around a stomach sleeper’s midsection pulls them too deeply into the mattress and strains the lumbar region. Because of this, stomach sleepers often favor firmer models for extra support. The Nolah Evolution Hybrid’s medium feel coupled with its zoned coil layer will balance plushness and support for some stomach sleepers, but the mattress may be too soft for others.
The polyfoam comfort and transition layers combine to total 4 inches, which is fairly thick. This may give some stomach sleepers too much room to sink in before reaching the support of the coil core. Individuals who weigh under 230 pounds should be less prone to excessive sinkage on the mattress, but those who weigh more than 230 pounds may notice sagging near their midsections. While the zoning of the coil core helps to an extent, the middle of the bed still may not be sturdy enough for those who carry much of their weight near their middles.

The Nolah Evolution Hybrid Mattress is sold through the Nolah website and is available within the 48 contiguous United States. It does not ship to Alaska, Hawaii, or Canada at this time.
Ground shipping is free within the contiguous United States. Most mattresses leave the factory 2 to 5 days after an order is placed. The bed then ships via FedEx or UPS and should arrive 3 to 5 business days later. Customers will receive a tracking number when their order ships. Most mattresses arrive 5 to 10 business days after the customer places their order.
Each mattress is compressed, wrapped, and packed in a box for shipping. FedEx or UPS will leave the box where you usually receive large packages. Nolah recommends having another person help you move the boxed mattress into your room of choice. From there, you can unbox it, position it, unwrap it, and allow it to expand.
For an additional fee, Nolah will coordinate the setup of the new mattress and/or removal of the old mattress through a third-party logistics company. Mattress removal and setup cost $150 each or $300 for both services. These fees are non-refundable.
A 120-night trial period is included with the Nolah Evolution Hybrid Mattress. If you try the bed for at least 30 nights and decide it isn’t right for you, you can return it for a full refund of the purchase price. Nolah will attempt to arrange for a local charity to remove the unwanted mattress. If an appropriate charity can’t be found, Nolah will try to coordinate a pickup by a junk hauler or a recycling company.
If you are not interested in a trial period, you can opt out to reduce the purchase price.
The Nolah Evolution Hybrid Mattress comes with a partially prorated lifetime limited warranty. This policy extends to the original mattress purchaser who bought their bed through Nolah or an authorized seller and used it for residential, non-commercial purposes.
During the first 15 years of coverage, Nolah will repair or replace mattresses deemed defective and cover associated shipping costs. After 15 years, Nolah will either repair the mattress and the owner will be assessed a handling charge or replace the mattress at a prorated charge and a shipping fee. From years 15-25, the prorated charge will be 50 percent of the original purchase price. After 25 years, a replacement will incur a charge of 60 percent of the original purchase price.
This policy covers indentations over 1-inch deep and physical damage to the foam caused by faulty craftsmanship. Damage from failure to use a proper frame and physical abuse are not covered.
