Eve is one of the biggest rolled mattress companies here in the UK and recently they launched a new product. In this Eve Hybrid mattress review, I will talk about their effort to develop a hybrid mattress and whether it’s worth your attention.
My mattress arrived almost 3 weeks ago, and I was really keen to try this out. It was lighter than other rolled mattresses so it wasn’t too difficult to take it out of the box. It does have a bad smell at the beginning but this will wear off after a couple of days. It’s time now I move to the full review.
MATERIALS & CONSTRUCTION
The Eve Hybrid is made of a total of 3 layers and the mattress cover. These are:
A layer made of evecomfort foam. It’s designed to stay cool during the night and it’s very breathable. It also provides the body with the needed comfort.
A pocket spring layer that is made of 713 individually fabric-wrapped springs. This layer provides the body with the needed support and pressure relief but also gives a bit of bounce to the mattress.
A foam layer that is essentially the case for the pocket springs. It is also designed to optimise weight distribution.
In the picture below, you can see how the different layers are positioned inside the Eve Hybrid mattress.
The cover of the Eve Hybrid is made of 100% polyester. They used a 4-way stretch knit which is very practical thinking as it makes the cover both durable and very breathable. In addition, Eve claims that it’s fire retardant which is something that we don’t see frequently. The cover has a very simple but beautiful design featuring a white top and light grey sides. It is removable and you can machine wash it at low temperatures. This is great, especially for those people like myself that want to keep their mattresses fresh and clean. The cover feels quite soft and looks of good quality. It lacks some added features like handles or an anti-slip surface but at this price point, it’s quite natural. Overall, Eve made a functional and beautiful cover that does the job.
COMFORT & SUPPORT
The Eve Hybrid mattress was designed to suit most people. For this reason, they went with a medium-firm approach. If I use my virtual scale, I would say it’s a 3.3 with 5 being really firm and 0 really soft. So it’s very similar to the Eve Original in terms of firmness. However, their thickness is very different with the Original Eve being 24cm in height while the Hybrid one is only 18cm. This is something you should be aware of as it can change the way it fits on your bed frame or sheets. I would like to talk now about the different sleeping positions.
Starting from the back position, I immediately felt the lack of a memory foam layer which I love so much. The pressure relief was not great but the springs did a good job supporting my body. It was comfortable but something was missing.
Moving to the side position, the springs adjusted quickly and my spine was aligned properly. I felt really good in this position and I must say this is where this mattress performed at its best. In general, memory foam is more important for the back or stomach position so I didn’t feel it was lacking here.
Finally, turning to the stomach position, I felt that my hips were not as much supported as I would like and my spine was not aligned properly. I felt that the mattress didn’t perform well in this position and it wasn’t very comfortable.
The edge support of the Eve Hybrid was quite good. It’s a well-made mattress and you will get the same performance from every corner of the bed. The springs obviously have increased motion transfer but nothing too much which makes this mattress good for couples. Overall, I found the Eve Hybrid to be ok but I would definitely go for another one like Eve or Casper.
Eve offers free delivery with any size which usually takes 3 days to arrive after you have placed your order. As I have mentioned, this is a rolled mattress so it comes in a nice white carton box like the one in the picture below. Free delivery takes place on weekdays and there is no option for Saturdays. Due to high demand, there is no next-day delivery either. The lack of Saturday delivery can be an issue for those who work and I hope this changes soon. You can choose specific delivery slots that will cost you anything between £10-£20. If you want to have your old mattress removed, Eve can do this for an extra £35. They will pick it up after they have delivered your new mattress.
My mattress arrived on a Thursday morning as expected. The delivery guy was very polite and he delivered it on time. Overall, I had a good experience with them.
TRIAL PERIOD & GUARANTEE
The Eve Hybrid comes with a 100-night trial period which gives you enough time to try it and decide if you like it. If you are not happy with it, you can return it for free and get a full refund. To do so, you have to contact their customer service department and they will arrange the collection. You don’t have to keep the original packaging to be able to return your mattress so you can get rid of it after the unpack. The mattress also comes with a 10-year warranty which is great! You can read the full T&Cs for all the details. Overall, Eve offers a fantastic package here.
After finishing this Eve Hybrid mattress review, I would like to share my final thoughts with you. Eve created a budget mattress starting at £299 but definitely cut some important corners. It’s a mattress that I would personally get for my guest room and not as my main one. It’s not a bad one but the lack of pressure relief is a big drawback, especially at my age. If you look for a secondary mattress this might be a good option. If you look for your primary one then stretch your budget a bit and get the Eve Original.
