Layers and Specifications of Honey Hybrid Mattress
The Honey Hybrid mattress has 6 layers. Each is designed to do something necessary for its overall comfort:
GOTS Organic Quilted Cotton Cover
First, you have the one inch quilted organic cotton cover. This cover is very luxurious in its look and feel. It is very thick but still very soft and comfortable.
GOTS Organic wool as fire barrier
The quilt of the cover also sews through a think layer of 0.5 inch of organic wool that is placed under the cotton. This layer acts as the natural fire barrier for the whole mattress. The use of wool is much better than chemical fire barriers.
GOLS Organic Dunlop latex
Dunlop latex is great at reducing pressure on the shoulders and giving the mattress a nice cushion and contour to maximize comfort.
Honey Micro Coils
Under the Dunlop latex comes a 4 inch layer of patented Micro coils. These work to provide a more sleeper specific comfort. They react differently to different body shapes, weights and even sleep position. We noticed that this technology is what made this mattress stand out.
Individually Wrapped Coils
1600 individually wrapped and pocketed coils for a more individual support. It is that firmness that gives enough support to those on the heavier side.
GOTS Organic Cotton/Wool Blend
A final layer that acts as a base for the mattress not to shift and keeps everything in place. Also, it makes sure coils are not touching the bed or foundation. This layer also increases the overall longevity of the mattress by keeping it in shape and acting as the foundation for all above layers.
(Under 140 lbs):
Now that we know how the mattress is constructed, we move on to how well its design does with the different sleeping positions and weight groups. We generally noticed that this mattress works for pretty much all sleepers because of its targeted support technology.
Lightweight side sleepers
If you’re used to softer beds then the Honey might feel a tad firm for you. According to our testing, the Honey Hybrid does fairly well for lightweight side sleepers because of its thick plush layer of cotton and latex on top and the micro coils that work together to distribute pressure points.
Lightweight back sleepers.
Lightweight back sleepers will enjoy this mattress for sure as it’s bult to reduce the pressure on both lower and upper back significantly more than other hybrids.
Lightweight stomach sleepers.
Same as above. If you sleep on your stomach and are under 140 lbs., then you should have no issues with this bed.
(140 – 240 lbs):
Average weight side sleepers
Fortunately the Honey Hybrid mattress offers great pressure relief and so being a medium weight side sleeper will make you feel right at home with this bed. Side sleepers also needs cooling, and this bed is great at that from all the organic materials that it uses.
Average weight back sleepers
Same as above. This group of sleepers in general don’t find it difficult to get a good hybrid mattress. Hybrids generally work for them as sleeping on your back feels great on mattress with pocketed coils. The Honey Hybrid would feel even better because it uses a dual-coils system and organic materials.
Average weight stomach sleepers.
Similar to the average weight back sleepers, this group should feel right at home with this mattress. The main challenge for most stomach sleepers is cooling and this bed is design with so much air circulation that it received our highest cooling rating yet.
(240 lbs or more):
Heavyweight side sleepers:
Heavy weight side sleepers require good pressure relief and contouring for their shoulders to sink in and be comfortable. Our test showed that the Honey Hybrid is more than supportive for heavier people but if you find yourself needing more cushion, you might want to add a latex topper or a plush mattress pad.
Heavyweight back sleepers
No issues here whatsoever. Heavyweight back sleepers will be very happy with this mattress as it has more than enough support to handle their position and weight. This bed is LGA certified, meaning it was tested and certified to be enough for a 330 lbs. person in the span of 10 years of use. So again, no issues here.
Heavyweight stomach sleepers.
Same as above, the Honey Hybrid would work better than most mattress here because it is certified to be enough for heavier people. Most mattress are comfortable at first but if they go down after a couple of years then you’ll have a bad bed that you can’t return. But that won’t be an issue here because no poly foams were used, just good quality latex and tempered steel coils.
The Honey Hybrid has a firmness rating of 4-7. It is a truly luxury feeling mattress and one of the very few offered online with such a wide range of firmness in one bed. The reason why it has a different support for different body shapes, weight, and sleep positions is because it uses a unique micro coil targeted support system. It basically gives more support when it feels more weight on a specific area but uses tiny coils to distribute the pressure yet offer good support.
The Honey Hybrid is built very well with organic Dunlop for comfort while the cover is made of organic wool and organic cotton. Simply put, the way this mattress is structured leaves very little room for sagging and body indentation.
Because of this durable and effective design, the Sweet Zzz company gives a lifetime warranty on their mattresses. This not only shows confidence in their commitment to quality but also acts as the peace of mind you need with a purchase this large.
Considering the quality of this mattress, its unique dual-coil system design, and all the organic and sustainable certifications it has, the price tag is actually very generous. the Honey Hybrid offers a great value for the money. Latex mattresses are generally more expensive but latex hybrid mattress are always very expensive. However, that is not the case of the Honey Hybrid.
Because Sweet Zzz does not want to use edge support poly foam, the Honey Hybrid uses firmer coils on the edge of the bed to provide better sitting and prevent the feel of rolling off.
This means that when you do sit on the edge the mattress will not sink too much and will provide a nice sitting area. It also allows you to use the entire surface of the bed as you won’t feel like you’re about to role off the bed when you sleep on the edge.
This is one of the areas where this mattress absolutely thrives. First, all the materials used are organic certified. Naturel materials tend to sleep much cooler than poly foams when it comes to mattresses. Second, the bed is designed to allow a lot of air movement through it’s dual-coils layers. This means more air circulation and more breathability. If you’re a hot sleeper, then you should certainly consider this bed as we couldn’t feel a hint of overheating on this bed during test.
When it comes to couples all latex and hybrid mattresses are great and the Honey Hybrid is the best of both worlds making it a great mattress for couples.
Individually wrapped coils and latex means very little motion can be transferred between couples. Another thing to point out is that this mattress has a high profile and a heavyweight that keeps the mattress in place, reducing any motion altogether.
Thought there might some noise coming from the coils, overall noise is not a big issue with the Honey Hybrid. This is mainly because the coils are all wrapped together and so they don’t have any contact.
For active couples a mattress needs to be bouncy, comfortable, and durable to handle the wear and tear of the activity. The Honey Hybrid has all of these requirements down, so it ranks very high for Amorous Activities.
Honey Hybrid mattress comes with a lifetime warranty.
The best part of the warranty is that it stays non-prorated for the duration of the warranty meaning that the mattress will not lose value over years and you’ll get your replacement free of charge.
Like with any warranty, the devil is in the details and the details in this warranty state that the warranty can only be honored for the person who purchased the mattress. This is normal as all warranties ask the same.
Also, to make sure that your warranty is not voided, the mattress has to be clean. Mattress companies do this because if they see any stain on the cover it indicates that the sagging was the result of customer abuse and not common wear and tear.
Overall, the Honey Hybrid has one of the most generous warranties in the Bed in a box industry.
The Honey Hybrid offers a 100 nigh sleep trial during which you can return the mattress free of charge. After we finished testing the Honey Hybrid mattress and were sure there was nothing else to test, we wanted to return the mattress to get a feel of how things work with them and how quickly.
