Casper Sleep Original Hybrid Mattress
The Casper Hybrid features a complex construction that layers multiple types of foam over pocketed coils. The foams create a Zoned Support system that’s firmer near the middle of the bed (to support the hips and spine) and softer near the head and foot (to relieve pressure). The end result is a responsive, supportive, and comfortable mattress.
- Back sleepers who are looking for a balance of comfort and support
- Hot sleepers who are looking for a mattress that sleeps cool
- Folks who like a balanced foam feel that mixes pressure relief with responsive support
- Folks who don’t need the support of coils, since they can save money by looking at the all-foam original Casper
- Heavier side sleepers, who might find that the mattress feels too firm to relieve pressure around the shoulder or hip
- Folks who like a slow-moving memory foam feel, since this mattress is bouncier and more responsive than classic memory foam

Casper Hybrid Mattress Performance
Alright, we’ve assessed the Casper Hybrid’s firmness, feel, and construction. Now let’s take a closer look at this bed’s performance. We evaluated the Casper Hybrid with regard to motion transfer, edge support, temperature regulation, and more. Let’s see how it did!
Sleeping Hot Or Cold
The Casper Hybrid does a nice job of sleeping cool thanks to its breathable cover, the perforated and breathable Airscape foam, and the coils, which allow for even more airflow through the mattress.
Even though the Casper Hybrid is a fairly bouncy mattress, it performs pretty well when it comes to motion transfer. The foams in the comfort layers do a decent job of absorbing motion, so this could be a viable option for couples who don’t want to disturb each other during the night.
While lying down on the Casper Hybrid, we felt pretty supported near the edge. However, we didn’t feel very secure while sitting on the edge of this bed. Overall, the edge support on the Casper Hybrid is just okay.
This is a fairly durable mattress that should last for at least 7 years. The coils make the Casper Hybrid more durable than many all-foam mattresses.
We did notice some off-gassing when we first received the Casper Hybrid. This should dissipate within a few days.
Even though the Casper Hybrid includes coils in its construction, this doesn’t seem to be a noisy mattress. We didn’t observe any notable noise.
When people seek out a mattress for sex, they’re usually concerned about whether they’ll feel stuck in the mattress. Based on that consideration, the Casper Hybrid should be a good fit for sex. The coils and foams are responsive, and it’s easy to move around on top of the mattress.
Casper Hybrid Mattress Firmness and Feel (Including Firmness Rating)
When shopping for a new mattress, it’s critical to assess a bed’s firmness and feel. These factors say a lot about which kinds of sleepers are best matched to a particular bed. Let’s take a look at what it’s like to sleep on top of the Casper Hybrid!
How Firm is the Casper Hybrid?
We ranked the Casper Hybrid around a 7/10 on the firmness scale. The industry standard for medium firmness is 6.5/10, so this suggests the Casper Hybrid is a touch firmer than medium-firm.
That said, because of the Zoned Support system, this bed’s firmness might vary depending on a person’s sleep position. For instance, some people might find that the mattress feels softer while side sleeping and firmer when stomach or back sleeping.
A sleeper’s perception of this bed’s firmness will also vary a bit depending on their body weight. For instance, heavier-weight side sleepers might find the Casper Hybrid feels firmer to them than it does to lighter-weight side sleepers. So while our firmness assessment can serve as a general guidepost, keep in mind that firmness is a bit subjective.
Sleeping On the Casper Hybrid (Sleeping Positions)
We felt both comfortable and supported while back sleeping on the Casper Hybrid mattress. Our hips sank in just a little bit for some pressure relief, but they still felt elevated enough to remain in line with the spine and create neutral spinal alignment. We also felt great lumbar support from the Zoned Support system and great overall support from the pocketed coils.
Moving to our side, we enjoyed some pressure relief around the hip. Lighter-weight sleepers should experience even better pressure relief in this position.
While stomach sleeping on the Casper Hybrid, we generally felt well-supported. The pocketed coils and the foams’ Zoned Support system helped elevate our hips and keep them aligned with the spine.
What Does the Casper Hybrid Feel Like?
The Casper Hybrid mattress has a very bouncy, responsive foam feel, which makes it easy to move around on top of the mattress. Additionally, the Zoned Support system creates a firmer feel near the center of the mattress and a softer feel near the head and foot.
Average Weight Sleepers – 130lbs – 230lbs
In general, the Casper Hybrid should be a decent match for average-weight sleepers regardless of sleep position. It balances spinal support with pressure relief while back sleeping, offers a touch of pressure relief for side sleepers, and should be supportive enough for average-weight stomach sleepers.
Heavyweight Sleepers – Over 230lbs
The Casper Hybrid could be well-matched to back sleepers who are close to 230 pounds. Folks who weigh much more than that might require a more supportive mattress overall. In general, heavyweight side sleepers will probably want a mattress with a softer, thicker comfort layer in order to obtain adequate pressure relief. The Casper Hybrid is probably not supportive enough for heavyweight stomach sleepers.
Lightweight Sleepers – Under 130lbs
The Casper Hybrid should be a quality match for all types of lightweight sleepers. It balances comfort and support for back sleepers, provides adequate pressure relief for most lightweight side sleepers, and is supportive enough to promote spinal alignment for lightweight stomach sleepers.
