Our Verdict

We rate the Leesa Hybrid as one of the most comfortable mattresses out there. Its springs give excellent support without pushing too hard on the body, while the memory foam and breathable foam layers at the top of the mattress create the same sort of gentle comfort that made the Leesa Original mattress a classic.

What is the Leesa Hybrid mattress?

The Leesa Hybrid is made by the highly-rated US brand Leesa. As its name would suggest, this is a hybrid mattress, using both pocket springs and memory foam to provide a desirable mix of support and comfort. Customers get free shipping, a 100-night mattress trial and a 10-year warranty. This mattress was formerly sold as the Leesa Sapira. Like the Leesa Original, it arrives compressed, wrapped and boxed.

Leesa Hybrid: Price

The RRP of the Leesa Hybrid mattress ranges from $1,099 to $1,999. Pricing is as follows:

  • Twin: $1,099
  • Twin XL: $1,199
  • Full: $1,499
  • Queen: $1,799
  • King: $1,999

The Leesa Hybrid 28. The most immediately noticeable is its polyester cover, which builds on Leesa’s classic branding with some jazzy geometric details. 

Of course, it’s what’s on the inside that really counts. The top layer of the Hybrid is a 1.5-inch comfort foam, designed to keep you cool and comfy while you rest. Just below, there’s 1.5-inch of contouring memory foam, which helps the mattress mold to your form with microscopic precision. Beneath these layers, two shallow foam inserts sandwich the component that makes the Leesa Hybrid special: a 6-inch layer of tempered steel pocket springs. 

Another feature worth mentioning is that Leesa Sleep gives away one mattress to a good cause for every ten mattresses purchased. To date, the brand has donated more than 30,000 mattresses to over 1,000 non-profit organisations.

Leesa Hybrid: Performance

  • Combines the comfort of memory foam with the support of springs
  • Gives you a feeling of support, rather than suspension
  • One of the most comfortable mattresses we’ve tested

The Leesa Hybrid brilliantly combines the gentle comfort of the Leesa Original foam mattress with a supportive uplift from its base layer of pocket springs. It stands out from other hybrid mattresses in how subtly its springs act on the body. It gives you a feeling of support, rather than suspension. 

In the lead-up to testing the Leesa Hybrid, our reviewer suspected their under-supportive old mattress was causing pain in their back. Within one night of sleeping on the Leesa Hybrid, the ache was gone. This isn’t to say that the Leesa Hybrid will cure everyone’s ailments, but it’s certainly a good sign that the mattress’s tempered steel springs are doing their job. 

This is without a doubt one of the most comfortable mattresses we’ve tested. Those who like a very gentle level of support will be better off with a classic memory foam mattress, but for most users, the Leesa Hybrid would be a superb choice.

As of October 2019, over 1,300 customers have given the Leesa Hybrid an average rating of 4.5 stars at the Leesa Sleep online store. 91% of those respondents say they would recommend the mattress to a friend. 

The comments attached to these ratings often seem to echo our reviewer’s positive feedback on the Leesa Hybrid.

“I traded in my 7k mattress for the Leesa Hybrid and it was the best decision I’ve made! I sleep so comfortably through the night and when I wake up I feel refreshed. Something else I noticed is I'm not as achy in the mornings. The springs and foam is the perfect combination for support and comfort,” says one customer. 

“It’s the right combo of firm, soft, and supportive and feels like a dream,” says another. 

A few reviewers did have issues with the Leesa Hybrid, including some who found the mattress too firm, and others who felt it didn’t make enough difference to justify the price. However, these seem to be relatively isolated cases in a sea of 5-star reviews. 

Should you buy the Leesa Hybrid?

So long as you’re willing to pay a premium price, the Leesa Hybrid is likely one of the best choices of mattress you could make. Our tester rated this as one of the comfiest mattresses they’ve tried, and the positive customer feedback we’ve found online would suggest there are plenty of other users who feel the same way. 

The relatively gentle action of the Leesa Hybrid’s springs makes this mattress a particularly suitable choice for people who need the added support springs can provide, but generally prefer the softer feel of a memory foam mattress. It could also be a great compromise option for couples who are split on whether to buy a memory foam mattress or a hybrid. 

In our view, the only folk who should steer clear of the Leesa Hybrid are those who are perfectly happy with memory foam alone. The Leesa Hybrid tends to cost over twice as much as the Leesa Original, which is one of the best mattresses on the market for those who prefer softer-feeling support.
