Lucid Hybrid Mattress Review – Support and Pressure Relief?

Lucid Hybrid Mattress Review – Support and Pressure Relief?


[music] Logan: Hi, this is Logan for sleepopolis.com. Today I’m going to be reviewing the Lucid
Hybrid mattress. The Lucid is a company that makes a whole
wide of different mattresses. I have previously reviewed the Lucid gel memory
foam, all-foam mattress. If you’re looking for that review, you can
just google Sleepopolis and Lucid mattress review. It’ll pop right up. I also want to mention that the hybrid mattress
does come in both 10 and 12 inch versions and uses either memory foam or latex foam
in the construction. Today, I am going to be taking a look at the
10-inch memory foam version of the hybrid mattress. I will have a little bit more information
on the other constructions in the written portion of the review which you can find at
sleepopolis.com. I’m going to put the mattress through a few
tests today and give some general recommendations at the end of the review. If you are interested in a personal recommendation
or have any questions that I don’t answer during the video, please feel free to leave
a note in the comments section below, with the information about yourself and some of
your sleep preferences. I’ll be sure to get back to you. I’m going to start the review of the Lucid
Hybrid today with the construction portion. I’m going to start with the cover which is
a Tencel-blended knit cover. It’s really thin. It’s going to allow air to flow through for
breathability. Tencel is a cotton substitute. It’s known for wicking with moisture, which
can help with temperature regulation and cooling. I’m going to look underneath the cover at
the layers of the mattress. The Lucid Hybrid mattress is a mixture of
coil and foam layers. The one I’m looking at today is the 10-inch
tall-version although it also comes in a 12-inch version. This is the memory foam version of the Hybrid. Although, it also does come in a latex foam
version. The comfort layer on top here is an inch and
a half of bamboo charcoal memory foam. It’s soft. It’s going to let you to sink in for pressure
relief. It does have that slow response of pressure
you would expect out of a memory foam, which is going to give you a bit of that contouring
feeling. Memory foam can at times be known for trapping
a bit too much body heat. The bamboo charcoal infusion or mix in this
layer is supposed to help with that. Below that, we have a layer of foam that has
an aloe vera infusion. Lucid says, ”That’s going to help you wake
up feeling more refreshed.” Below that, a bit of a transition layer. Its high-density polyfoam separates these
comfort layers on top of the mattress from the support center of the mattress. I do want to make a note that I’ve cut into
the mattress to give you a better view of what’s going on inside of it. Please do not do that to your mattress, just
take my word for it. The support center on the Lucid Hybrid is
made of a five and a half inch pocketed coil support system. It’s going to give you some good bounce and
support in the mattress. These coils are individually wrapped. They are going to be better at isolating motion
transfer than a traditional innerspring mattress would be. See how all those respond to pressure there. Wrapped around the entirety of the support
layer, is a high-density polyfoam edge support layer. This is a firm material. It reacts quickly to pressure. This is going to allow you to sleep all the
way to the edges of the bed and make the bed feel a little bit bigger. At the base of the mattress, you just see
an inch of high-density polyfoam. This really is just something for the support
center of the mattress to press off of. [silence] Logan: Now that we’ve seen what makes up a
Lucid Hybrid, and some of an idea for the feel in the firmness of the mattress. I’ll start by pressing into the cover. The first thing I feel is that soft memory
foam comfort layer. It’s really allowed me to sink in pretty quickly
for pressure relief. A bit more pressure starts to interact with
the support center the mattress such as see some of the bounce from the pocketed coil
system. I lie down on my back. Lying down on my back my weight is pretty
evenly distributed. Not really pushing too far into the mattress
and really only interacting with that soft layer on top, maybe a little bit of the transition
layer below that. I do feel myself sinking a little bit, a little
bit of contouring and filling in the space below my back, which is nice. Even though there is a little bit of sinkage,
I don’t really feel stuck in the mattress, thanks to the mix with the pocketed coil support
system, give me some bounce. I can change positions really easily. Turn around to my side. Side sleepers need to be extra conscious of
increased pressure. A higher weight concentration over a lower
surface area means you push further into a mattress. You tend to interact more with the support
layers of the mattress. Because of that, a lot of side sleepers will
complain about pressure points forming at the shoulders and the hips as they deal with
the firmer portions of a mattress. A lot of side sleepers do like softer mattresses
because they allow them to sink in further for more pressure relief. We are going to take a closer look at pressure
later on a review. I did just want to say, I find that this mattress
has a medium firmness, maybe on the softer side of medium firmness. I do feel pretty comfortable lying on my side
in this position on the Lucid Hybrid. Roll on my stomach. Stomach sleepers are the opposite of side
sleepers. They tend to prefer firmer mattresses because
they’re going to keep their hips from sinking in, keep your spine aligned in a better position. Again, in my opinion, this has a medium to
medium or maybe soft little softer than a medium firmness. I feel like my hips are sinking too far into
this mattress. If you are a bit bigger than me and sleep
on your stomach, you might feel your hips sinking a bit too much into the mattress. Everyone can feel the firmness of the mattress
a little bit differently because of different sizes and weight distributions. For reference, I’m 5’10” and 190 pounds. If you would like a wider variety of opinions
on the firmness of this mattress, a little more detailed description of the feel of it,
you can check out the written review on sleepopolis.com. Instead of just describing the feel of the
Lucid Hybrid to you I want to give you a visual representation where pressure points might
form while lying on the mattress. To do that I placed this pressure map on top. I’m going to lie down on it. A few different positions, you see the results
next to me ranging from blue for low pressure to red for high pressure. I’m going to start on my back. Roll on my side. Try few positions here on my side. Finally, on my stomach. To give you a better idea of the bounce of
the Lucid Hybrid, I have this 10-pound steel ball. I’m dropping it here. There is a bit of bounce things that pocketed
coil support system really allows you to change positions really easily at a lower level. Not so much thanks to the memory foam, but
overall pretty good bounce to this mattress over here. We’re also going to run a quick motion transfer
test. Basically I’m going to drop this ball from
heights of 4, 8, and 12 inches. If someone’s rolling around in the middle
of the night or getting into and out of bed. On the other side of the mattress I have a
seismometer which is going to measure the disturbance that’s transferred from one side
of the bed to the other. The results you’re going to see on screen
now show the disturbance levels you can expect when someone’s moving around in bed in the
middle of the night, something like that. In my opinion, the Lucid Hybrid does a pretty
good job of isolating motion transfer. Memory foam does a good job of dulling motion
transfer in the pocketed coil system because they’re individually wrapped. Also does a good job of isolating motion. A lot of people buying a mattress are going
to know they’re going to feel like they’re more on top of or sinking into the mattress. To test this, the sinkage test, in which we
use four balls of varying sizes, weights, and densities, simulate different body parts. Check to see how far into the mattress they
go. The six-pound medicine ball filled with sand,
it’s a lighter body part. 10-pound steel ball, it’s the densest ball
we’re using in this test. 50-pound medicine ball, it’s also filled with
sand, it’s a heavier portion of your body. The 100-pound medicine ball filled with sand,
if you’re a bit bigger, kind of the center of your body which we expect sinkage there. In terms of sinkage, we have an inch for the
six-pound ball, two inches for the 10-pound ball, four inches for the 50-pound ball and
six inches for the 100-pound ball. When compared to other mattresses that have
tested that is exactly average for all sinkages across the board. For what you expect that feels about right
with the construction of the mattress. There’s a memory foam comfort layer you are
going to sink in, feel a little bit sinkage there. It does mix well with the pocketed coil support
system which gives them bounce. You definitely don’t feel stuck in this mattress
at all. You get this nice blend of sinking in for
pressure relief but without feeling stuck in the Lucid Hybrid. If you plan on sharing the bed with the partner,
you need to use the entire surface area of the mattress. Edge support can be incredibly important. Earlier that, Lucid took the time to add an
edge support portion of the construction around the entire mattress to allow sleep closer
to the edge. I’m really interested to see how that holds
up here. I’m sleeping on the side of the Lucid here. It’s a pretty even feeling over here from
the center of the mattress to the side. You can get really close to the edge, can
see that the high-density polyfoam wrapped around the support center of the mattress
does a good job of supporting my weight. I don’t feel like I’m going to collapse aside,
roll out of bed. There is a little bit of compression through
those softer foams. That’s to be expected out of softer layers
like that. As I’m hanging up the side of the mattress,
rolling on to my side, again pressing through those softer layers on top the memory foams
on top. That’s to be expected. What you’re really looking at is the high-density
polyfoam edge support portion of the mattress is doing a good job while I’m asleep, all
the way to the edge. As I sit up on the side of the mattress, concentrating
more of my weight over one portion of the mattress thing, maybe putting shoes in the
morning or something like that, I do push pretty far in. That’s to be expected of a foam mattress. You’re really concentrating your weight on
one side of the bed. Overall, I would say that the edge support
on the Lucid is pretty good. Just to give you some basic information about
the Lucid Hybrid there is a 10-year warranty, shipping is free. It will arrive compressed in a box. Who I recommend this mattress to? If you’re looking for a value buy compared
to other hybrid mattresses on the market, the Lucid Hybrid does come in on the less
expensive side. If you’re looking for that hybrid feel but
don’t want to pay such a high price, this would be a good choice for you. I also recommend the Lucid Hybrid to couples. As I was of impressed with how it did on the
motion transfer tests as well as the edge support test including the specific edge support
portion of the construction, which allows you to sleep all the way to the edge of the
bed. Those are two tests that I point to as being
indicators for good mattress for couples. Finally, I reckon if it’s a mattress we’re
looking for that memory foam feel but don’t want to feel stuck in the mattress, the comfort
layer is memory foam which has a slower response to pressure. It pairs well with the bounce from the pocketed
coil support system to enable to change positions easily without any added effort. Some general recommendation but if I’m going
to be a bit more specific. Talk about some example sleepers, let’s say
you’re 220 pounds, you’re strict stomach sleeper. I don’t think I’d recommend this mattress
to you as it is on that softer side of a medium firmness. Your hips might sink in a little bit, throw
your back out of alignment. However, if you’re 160 pounds, you’re a combo
back and side sleeper, seems to be a good choice for you. Those are some really specific examples. If you’re looking for a personal recommendation,
please feel free to leave a note in a comment section below, with some information about
yourself, some of your sleep preferences. I’ll be sure to get back to you. If your mattress search has just begun, please
feel free to google Sleepopolis and mattress buying guide. It’s going to have a lot of information in
there. That’s going to help you better understand
what’s going to make a good mattress for you. Finally, please subscribe to the Sleepopolis
YouTube channel. We’re going to keep putting out more content
that’s going to help you get a better night’s sleep. That’s it for the review today. I hope it was helpful. Have a nice day. [music]

  1. I'm 220lbs and a back and side sleeper. Lucid hybrid memory foam or hybrid latex foam? 10 inch or 12 inch? I do want the mates to work with an adjustable base.

  2. Hi πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for all the wonderfully in depth reviews. I'm looking for a mattress for my son. Planning on a twin xl if that makes a difference. He's about 6'5" and 250 lbs with a large frame obviously lol. He primarily sleeps on his stomach but sometimes his back and sleeps very hot. Would you recommend this or another mattress? Thanks in advance!!

  3. 200 lbs give or take, 6'1". Primarily side-sleeper, sometimes stomach, sometimes back. Is this good for me?

  4. I used the Brooklyn Bedding Aurora before… If you've tried it, how significantly different would this one be ?

  6. I love your reviews and after months of watching, going to brick and mortar, I have learned an enormous amount from you and some others. I have previously purchased a 3k latex mattress, big mistake as I'm a 90% side sleeper, not only did it kill my shoulders due to the firmness, it ended up with depressions very early on. Before that mattress and ever since after I have slept on one form of a waterbed or another, with the latest being a soft sided pillow top, foam/water 100% waveless waterbed. It like all other foam based has slowly deteriorated over the past 7 yrs., do it's time to renew. I like the feeling of this bed but the hassle when replacing is something I don't want to deal with, I paid 800.00 for this originally and now the price is almost twice, so it's a no go.
    So after 40 hrs of viewing, comparing, learning and talking, I have found price isn't the defining factor of whether a particular mattress will feel the best, it's knowing your body and trying out many different types. I"m a woman middle aged and normal weight for my height 5'7" and 135-140lbs. Side sleeper mainly, back/stomach occasionally.
    I believe the best style of mattress for me or anyone who loves the slight sinking/pressure relieving feel and the responsive/coolness of a traditional mattress will love the hybrids. And generally they are the least expensive as well.
    Bottom line, memory foam is now very easy to obtain in a large variety of beds and combined with coils makes for a good side/lighter persons choice. And you dont' need to pay 1000$ either, both will wear out over time.
    So, the lucid wins as my choice, it's price is phenomenal and hopefully the feel with as well.

    I love your pressure testing, however I wish you could have a woman also do the pressure testing, we are half of the sleeping population , πŸ™‚

  7. Thanks for this review. Very helpful. Would you recommend a mattress for me and my husband. I am 5"6" 160 and he is 5'9" at 250. We are looking for a queen sized mattress.

  8. Thank you for your video. I purchased this mattress last week and have slept on it for 3-4 nights. Overall I'm comfortable enough, but I noticed it already has some noticeable sagging / indentation. I've not had a memory foam / hybrid mattress before, but I'm wondering if this is normal. I'm a side sleeper and around 210 lbs. thank you in advance!

  9. I am a graduate student (aka cost conscious) but still looking for a quality mattress. I'm 6'1" and 220 lbs. I'm currently sleeping on an interspring mattress with a latex topper and like the firmer bouncy feel. Do you think the Lucid 12" latex hybrid would be a good option?

  10. Hi, I don’t see any reviewers mention fiber glass but that seems to be an issue on some amazon reviews on these. Any thoughts on usage of fiberglass and flame retardants in these mattresses or others made in China ones?
