Watch the video below to see how the Tuft & Needle Hybrid performed when put to the test in the Sleep Foundation Lab.
This is a 12-inch hybrid mattress with a medium firmness rating of 5 on the 10-point firmness scale. The Tuft & Needle Hybrid is constructed with a three-part comfort layer. The upper layer of the comfort system is polyfoam containing Tuft & Needle’s proprietary adaptive foam as well as graphite and a cooling gel infusion, both of which help wick away heat from the sleeper. Next comes a layer of micro-coils and then a layer of transitional polyfoam. The combination of foam and coil layers provides the soft, contouring comfort of an all-foam mattress with the improved airflow of coiled springs.
Below the comfort layer sits the support core consisting of pocketed coils made from tempered steel. The support core stabilizes the sleeping surface, preventing the sleeper from sinking too far into the mattress. The coils offer resilient support—sleepers may notice a soft bounce—while providing durability.
The Tuft & Needle Hybrid also comes with a reinforced, soft-knit cover made from a micro polyamide and polyester blend. The cover was not intended to be removed. However, its sturdy construction is durable and the cover can be spot cleaned as needed.
This mattress also has several optional add-ons that can be included in your purchase when buying from the Tuft & Needle website. This includes Tuft & Needle’s adjustable bed frame that allows you to modify your sleep position via remote control. Customers can also choose to add-on a Tuft & Needle mattress protector. This removable and machine-washable mattress cover contains a waterproof protective film that is designed to mimic the soft feel of the company’s mattresses.
The Tuft Needle Hybrid Mattress is constructed of alternating layers of foam and coils. Its comfort system is made up of an upper layer of polyfoam, a layer of micro-coils, followed by a layer of transitional foam while the support core consists of pocketed coils.

The unique comfort layer composition of the Tuft & Needle Hybrid makes this mattress well suited to side sleeping. Its comfort system’s top layer of adaptive foam provides moderate pressure relief while hugging the hips and shoulders, key points of pressure for side sleepers.
The Tuft & Needle Hybrid also contains a layer of micro-coils inserted between the top and the transitional layer of foam in its comfort system. Overall, this comfort system provides a soft yet resilient sleep surface that supports the sleeper’s hips and shoulders and prevents them from sinking too deeply into the surface of the mattress.
As a result, this mattress is rated a medium on the firmness scale and provides excellent comfort for side sleepers who weigh under 230 pounds.
Back sleepers typically place a greater amount of pressure on the lumbar area of the back. To properly cushion and support the lower back and midsection, back sleepers tend to prefer medium to medium firm mattresses. If a mattress is too firm, it will lack cushioning and can create painful pressure points in the lumbar area. But if a mattress is too soft, it will allow the sleeper’s midsection to sink into the sleep surface, preventing proper spinal alignment.
With a medium firmness rating, the Tuft & Needle Hybrid is ideal for back sleepers who weigh under 230 pounds and enjoy a mattress on the softer end of their normal comfort range. However, back sleepers over 230 pounds typically require a more firm sleep surface to achieve a balance between support and contouring and may not prefer the feel of the Tuft & Needle Hybrid.
Similar to back sleepers, stomach sleepers also require a balance between support and contouring. A mattress that is too soft will allow the sleeper’s midsection to sink too deeply, pushing the body into a U shape, especially if they are using a pillow under their head and neck. For this reason, stomach sleepers tend to prefer slightly firmer mattresses that can support their midsections while still providing a moderate level of cushioning for common pressure points such as the shoulders.
The Tuft & Needle Hybrid is on the softer end of what most stomach sleepers would typically prefer. However, the mattress’s combination of coiled and foam comfort layers provide enough support and responsiveness that sleepers under 230 pounds will find this mattress quite comfortable, especially if they prefer a softer feel. On the other hand, stomach sleepers over 230 pounds will likely need a mattress that provides more support.
