Casper Hybrid Mattress Review

What happens when one of the most popular mattress companies takes its most popular mattress and upgrades nearly every part of it?  Prepare to be impressed!

Nerd Score: 4.9/5

Our verdict: The Casper Hybrid suits a wide range of sleepers regardless of size, weight, and preferred sleep position. The addition of the coil layer to the Casper Original Mattress comes with some added support, comfort, more motion transfer control, and edge support, making this mattress a great option for couples. It is cooler than the Casper Original due to the open-cell foam and coils, but still may be too warm for very hot sleepers.

The Casper Hybrid mattress is one of two new hybrid designs from the dedicated people at Casper. Working off of its flagship and eponymous model, the design team upgraded its most popular mattress by adding a layer of pocket coils to turn it into a hybrid.

And, yet, they were still able to bring it home at a relatively affordable price.

Casper has built a reputation for consistently offering a mattress that works for a wide range of sleepers. They do the work to accomplish that big task. For example, Casper designers sifted through five years’ worth of customer feedback to conceive the Casper Hybrid.

Again this mattress is one of the most affordable hybrid mattresses you will find in the marketplace where hybrids are usually anything but affordable. Often companies will add a coil layer to a memory foam design because coils can withstand more weight and give better edge support while naturally increasing airflow for additional cooling.

It makes sense that manufacturers would take the risk. After all, the more versatile a mattress, the more potential customers a company can chase. That is the approach Casper took with this hybrid.


Consider these features when you’re looking at the Casper Hybrid mattress:

  • Combines contouring of memory foam and buoyancy of coils
  • “Zoned support” is Casper’s latest design innovation
  • “Zoned support” uses foams of varying densities to keep the spine aligned
  • Support and contouring for tummy sleepers, support to keep the spine aligned for back sleepers, and good contouring for body curves for side sleepers. See Best Mattresses for Side Sleepers
  • Combination sleepers, who switch positions at night, will love how quickly the mattress settles after they move
  • Open-cell foam and coils will let heat escape to keep you cool
  • Strength of the coil layer accommodates any weight of the sleeper
  • Does extremely well in responsiveness, motion transfer, and edge support
  • Online mattress giant also sells at Target if you want to see in person
  • 100-night free trial
  • 10-year limited warranty
  • Free shipping & free returns
  • CertiPUR-USⓇ certified foams free from harmful chemicals



The Casper Hybrid is a 12-inch hybrid mattress made of memory foam and pocket coils.


Heat retention is the one thing memory foam mattress makers have been trying to fix since memory foam mattresses became a thing. Traditional memory foam mattresses were known for doing insane work contouring and cradling a body at rest, while nearly braising them in their own juices.

The Casper Hybrid addresses that by using “open-cell” construction in the foam layers. That’s a fancy way of saying the foam has many tiny holes in it through which air can flow and take your body heat with it. Then there’s the wrapped coil layer. Those springs have tons of space between them, again to allow heat to escape.

If you sleep hot anyway, know that this mattress still has several layers of memory foam. Pay attention to how hot or cool you feel each night during your trial period.

Casper Hybrid Mattress Firmness

The Casper Hybrid is considered a medium mattress, a straight 5 out of 10 on the mattress firmness scale, leaning neither to the plush or firm sides of the spectrum. Since this is a memory foam and innerspring mattress, lighter people will experience, and sink into the foam layers differently, than heavier people, anyway.

But the Casper Hybrid also has zoned support to give you a different firmness depending on the needs of that particular body part. You get softer foam under your shoulders, where you need give to contour around those curves to relieve pressure. There is firmer foam under your hips and stomach for extra support, again to keep that spine aligned properly.

Edge support

The Casper Hybrid performs really well on edge support, nearly perfect. Wrapped coils are always good for edge support so the hybrid does well here. This is important for couples who use both sides of the bed and need to use the full surface of the mattress.

Motion transfer

You want to pay attention to motion transfer if anyone shares your bed. If you’re moving and then they feel that movement, they might wake up. You want a mattress that prevents the “motion” from “transferring” to your partner’s side.

The Casper Hybrid does a great job isolating movement to one side. The hybrid’s motion transfer performance also gets help from the fact that this mattress does very well responding and settling back to still when you shift at all in your sleep.


The Casper Hybrid is made of five layers —four of memory foam of varying densities and one pocket coil layer—that equal a 12-inch profile. Each serves a different support or comfort function.

Layer No. 1 is 1.5 inches of breathable comfort foam that will respond to your movements. Since it’s breathable, it shouldn’t heat up too much.

Layer No. 2 is 1.5 inches of pressure-relieving memory foam. This layer is super functional, doing a lot of work to relieve pressure at key points and to cradle curved body parts where necessary.

Layer No. 3 is a 1.5-inch slab made of two different memory foams to adapt to different body parts. The center of this layer is a higher density foam than the outside areas. It will hold up the heavier weight of your hips to keep your spine aligned. And the edges are made of a softer foam, which will more effectively and gently accommodate your shoulders. Layer No. 4 is a full 7 inches of pocket coil springs that are also an upgrade from the thick coils of old-school innerspring mattresses. The coils react more gently, isolating movement and readily adapting to the body. At 7 inches, it also enhances the durability and support of the mattress overall.


Here is a breakdown of the Casper Hybrid mattress:


  • Twin: 39″ x 75″
  • Twin XL: 39” x 80”
  • Full: 54” x 75”
  • Queen: 60” x 80”
  • King: 76” x 80”
  • Cal King: 72” x 84”

Casper Hybrid Mattress Trial

The Casper Hybrid comes with a 100-night risk-free trial. Casper gives customers quite an accommodating trial policy whether the mattress is coming or going.

You should always test your mattress for at least 30 days to make sure you have adapted to it before you decide to return it. If you return it, Casper will send a courier to pack up and take away the mattress at your convenience. They’ll then try to donate it to a local charity or recycle it and you will get a full refund of the purchase price.

Casper Hybrid Mattress Warranty

The Casper Wave Hybrid mattress comes with an industry-standard 10-year limited warranty that applies only to the original owner. It covers defects in materials and workmanship when you use the mattress as its intended. (No, you can’t use it as a trampoline and expect to stay good with your warranty.)

The Casper warranty covers sags greater than 1 inch that did not result from improper use or a weak foundation. It covers physical flaws that lead to cracks in the foam, but not if you used the mattress improperly. It covers any problems with the zipper that came as a result of bad workmanship.

As far as where you place the mattress, the company says you can use the Casper Hybrid with most foundations—adjustable, platform, bunkie board with boxspring or flat foundation.

Unboxing a Casper Hybrid Mattress

The Casper Hybrid mattress will arrive from UPS rolled and compressed in a box in 2-7 business days after you place your order. It is shipped free throughout the U.S. and Canada, but you’ll pay extra to Alaska and Hawaii. However, to some places in New York and Los Angeles, you can ask for same-day delivery.

Though hybrids are always heavier mattresses due to the coil layer, the Casper Hybrid is easy to set up with a friend. Haul it onto your base, and then unwrap and unfold it. Watch it come to life.

If you live in the lower 48 states or Canada and you’d rather someone else handle the heavy lifting, you may also pay $100 for the white-glove service. Someone will unbox and set up the mattress and then haul away packaging. If you want them to also take away your old mattress, simply pay another $50 for that assist.

Customer service

Casper mattress experts will answer questions about their mattresses seven days per week.

Also, you can find Casper Hybrid mattresses in several different retail locations throughout the U.S. by using the website’s store finder function. You can see the mattress in person and even book a time to take a nap on the Casper Hybrid if that’s your thing. Call the store directly for that option.

If you do buy a Casper Hybrid and then change your mind, Casper says it will complete your refund in two weeks.

Nerd Score: 4.9/5

The Casper Hybrid mattress arrives with a lofty ambition—to appease a wide range of sleepers by size, weight and preferred sleep position. Go ahead and have high expectations. Casper delivers on nearly all of them with the hybrid version of its super-popular original Casper mattress.

The Casper Hybrid’s main selling point is its zoned comfort and the addition of a coil layer. First, the zones feature a foam that is softer in the shoulder area and a firmer type for hips and back. And the coil layer makes the mattress breathable and durable.

The Casper people sifted through five years’ worth of customer feedback to steer them in the direction of a hybrid that included the targeted support it already planned to use in the updated memory foam Casper.

The Casper Hybrid version responds well to movement, limits motion transfer, has great edge support and has a built-in foam center to contour to different body parts. It will serve back, side and stomach sleepers alike.

If you want to have your cake and eat it, too—i.e. you want a high-performing hybrid without paying through the nose for it—this might be your dream in a box.
