Nest Bedding Organic Hybrid Latex Review
A 12-inch certified organic hybrid latex mattress that provides a luxury organic experience at half the price of store-bought organic latex beds.
Great Choice for: Anyone who prefers eco-friendly products and loves the feel of latex and innerspring.
Avoid if: You are allergic to latex.
Price: $839.20- $1679.20
The Owl Natural Latex Hybrid is their latest luxury product – and it is one of their best. Especially if you love organic beds like me.
The Hybrid Latex mattress combines the best of two worlds, innerspring and latex.
But Nest doesn't use just any latex – in their highest-end Organic Hybrid version, Nest uses GOLS-certified organic latex. They use a less expensive Oeko-Tex certified latex in their Hybrid Latex version.
In addition, Nest Bedding offers several different comfort and configuration options including a split mattress and two or three comfort levels.

About Nest Bedding
Nest Bedding has been selling mattresses using the direct-to-customer model for several years now.
They launched in 2011 and have since diversified to more than five premium mattresses plus other sleep products including pillows and foundations.
Nest Bedding is a family-owned company that does all manufacturing in the US. That’s how they make such high-quality products.
You don’t have to visit a store to buy this mattress, though. Everything they sell can be ordered online, and they’ll deliver to your home free of charge – plus give you 100 nights to test it.
If you want to see their mattresses in person before buying or just want to say hi to their staff, they currently have eight showrooms in New York, California, Illinois and Washington. You can see the full list of showrooms here.
Nest Bedding has always been conscious about their impact on the environment and in their community.
That’s why they continue to manufacture all their products in the US despite the higher costs.
Nest Bedding has also been careful to produce only eco-friendly products that are good for the environment and safe for their human and pet customers (they also sell pet bedding).
Nest Bedding products are usually found on various retail websites, but I recommend buying from their official website. This gives you several advantages:
- Longer trial period with free returns.
- Better offers and discounts.
- Better customer service.
Buying the Hybrid Latex takes a bit more time compared to ordering other mattresses online, because Nest offers your more options.
But it will take no more than five minutes to place your order.
The first thing you need to choose is whether you want an Organic Latex or Natural Latex mattress.
The organic latex is GOLS-certified while the natural latex version carries the Oeko-Tex standard.
The organic option is more expensive.
Next, pick your preferred size and select your comfort option.
Comfort options include plush, medium and firm. You can also choose whether to include a topper or not.
Note: couples can request a split option, but you’ll need to contact customer support to make it.
After making your selection, check out and pay via credit card or check to see if you qualify for Affirm.
Listed below are the latest prices for the Nest Bedding Hybrid Latex mattress – both Natural and Organic flavors.
NOTE: these prices are before discounts are applied.
|Hybrid Latex||Hybrid Organic Latex|
Note: The topper option is can be used with either mattress. It adds $379-$709 to your order depending on the mattress size selected.
Latest Coupons & Discounts
100-Night In-home Trial
The trial period is for 100 nights beginning from the day you receive the mattress.
Nest Bedding asks that you sleep on the mattress for at least 30 nights before requesting a return. Returns are free.
Instead of returning the entire mattress, you can also request a comfort exchange with a softer or firmer mattress.
Nest Bedding offers a lifetime warranty on all its mattresses including the Hybrid Latex.
The warranty covers indentations greater than 1” and other defects not caused by improper use of the mattress.
Shipping is free within contiguous US. For Alaska and Hawaii orders, applicable shipping fees will be calculated at checkout.
Every Nest Bedding mattress is made to order so delivery may take a week or more.
You’ll receive a tracking number as soon as your mattress leaves the factory.
Delivery and Setup
The Nest Hybrid Latex mattress is quite heavy thanks to its latex and innerspring construction.
You will want to have someone around to help you take it inside the house and set it up.
Alternatively, you can pay for white glove delivery. Nest Bedding will deliver the mattress and set it up in the bedroom for you. They can also take away the old mattress at a fee.
Contact customer support to see if white glove delivery is available in your area and how much it costs.
Foundation and Frame
What type of bed frame/support does Nest Bedding Hybrid Latex require?
Nest Bedding recommends using a non-flexing box or slat foundation. They advise against using an old box spring or a foundation with warped or bowed slats.
It could damage the mattress and reduce its lifespan. You’ll also void the warranty.
Does Nest Bedding Hybrid Latex work on an adjustable bed?
No, not recommended.
Care & Cleaning
Is a mattress protector needed for the Nest Bedding Hybrid Latex?
Stains and damage to the mattress could void the warranty and free return guarantee. So even though Nest Bedding doesn’t explicitly require a mattress protector, I highly recommend one.
You can easily order one from Nest Bedding as you buy the mattress.
Do you need to rotate the Nest Bedding Hybrid Latex mattress?
No, that’s not necessary.
Aesthetics & Styling
At 13” in height, the Nest Bedding Hybrid Latex mattress looks as luxurious as it feels. The mattress cover is two-toned – brown on the sides and white at the top.
The organic mattress cover is all-white.
Both covers have textured patterns on the side.
The Sturcture of the Owl Natural Latex Hybrid and the Organic Hybrid Latex are bit different.
Here are the layers, from top to bottom:
Owl Natural Latex Hybrid:
1st Layer: 1.5″ – Organic Stretch Knit Cotton and Joma Wool with Eco-Flex Quilting Foam Cover
2nd Layer: 3” OEKO-TEX® Certified Natural Dunlop Latex
3rd Layer: 1” Certi-PUR Transitional Comfort Foam
4th Layer: 6” Reinforced Edge Coil Support Pocketed Coils
5th Layer: 1” Support Foam (1.5 Lbs)
Organic Hybrid Latex:
1st Layer: 1” GOTS Certified Organic Wool & GOTS Certified Organic Cotton Quilted Cover
2nd Layer: 3” GOLS Certified Organic Dunlop Latex Encased in Breathable Organic Cotton
3rd Layer: 8” Pocket-Coil Support System Encased in Breathable Organic Cotton
Cover: Certified Organic Cotton w/ Joma Wool
1.5″ Eco Flex Quilting Foam
Right below the cover, the natural version has Eco Flex Quilting Foam while the organic mattress contains organic wool batting.
This adds a plush feel to the surface of the mattress and provides instant pressure relief.
3” Dunlop Latex
In the Owl Natural Latex Hybrid mattress, the Dunlop latex used is Oeko-Tex certified while in the organic version the Dunlop latex is GOLS-certified.
The latex layer in both mattresses provides a nice responsive feel to the mattress. You don’t feel stuck in the mattress when you turn at night, during sex and when you are getting out of bed.
Since latex doesn’t trap heat, this layer also helps keep the mattress cool.
1” Eco-Friendly Transition Foam
This layer serves as a transition from the foam layers above to the core pocket coil layer. It provides support and ensures you don’t feel the springs.
6” Pocketed Coils w/ Edge Support
These pocket coils come with a unique design that boosts overall support including edge support.
They also give the mattress a nice bounce, reduce motion transfer and enhance airflow to keep the mattress cool.
1” Support Foam or Organic Latex Base
The base layer is 1” of dense poly foam in the natural mattress and 1” organic GOLS-certified latex foam in the organic version.
This layer provides a firm base for the coils, ensuring they last longer and provide better support.
The cover is made from organic cotton with wool and works like a stretch knit fabric. This makes it more elastic than ordinary cotton fabrics.
It fits snugly around the mattress and doesn’t wrinkle or bunch up when you move at night.
Being cotton, it does a great job wicking-away perspiration and dissipating excess heat away from the mattress.
It feels really soft to the touch and the wool batting beneath gives it a luxurious feel.
There is very little off-gassing in the Owl Natural Latex Hybrid mattress and virtually none in the organic one.
Off-gassing tends to be more of an issue with synthetic memory and latex foams. But since the Nest Bedding hybrid latex mattresses use eco-friendly or organic foams, the chemical smell is pretty much absent.
There may be a bit of a smell associated with natural latex, but it is not unpleasant and fades away quickly.
This is a luxury mattress, and the sleeping experience lives up to expectations.
It’s the kind of sleep you pay to enjoy in a luxury 5-star hotel.
Support is great, and pressure relief is excellent.
The mattress feels a bit too soft at first, but that’s because of the instant pressure relief from the wool batting beneath the cover.
As soon as your body settles down into the mattress, you’ll feel the firmer and more supportive layers below.
Customers with back problems say it’s one of the best mattresses they’ve slept on. It does keep your spine properly aligned while cushioning your body where necessary.
The mattress feels very responsive, too, thanks to the latex and innerspring combo. Turning around at night is easier, and sex is more fun.
Nest Bedding offers multiple comfort options on its Hybrid Latex products. It’s something the company does with all their mattresses rather than selling a single one-fits-all mattress.
With the Hybrid Latex, there are three comfort options: plush, medium and firm.
The Organic Hybrid Latex also offers three options: plush, medium and firm.
If you prefer plush but not too soft, try the plush option. It feels like a 3.5-4 out of 10.
The medium option is the best one for most people and couples. Its firmness rating is around 5-6.
If you prefer something firmer or you have a heavier body, get the firm option. It rates a 6-7 out of 10.
Sinkage will depend on the firmness option you select as well as your sleeping position.
But generally, the sinkage is not pronounced even in the plush and soft comfort options. Latex foam typically has less sinkage than memory foam.
There is very little motion transfer in the Nest Bedding Hybrid Latex mattress.
Latex foam is naturally good at limiting motion transfer. The individually wrapped pocket coils also keep any disturbance within a small area.
It’s great for couples where one or both partners tend to get fidgety at night.
If you are sensitive to heat or experience frequent hot flushes at night, this is one of the most comfortable mattresses.
The Nest's latex foam doesn’t hold heat and its pocketed coils allow free air flow to take heat away from the mattress.
The organic cotton cover and wool batting also wick perspiration away from your skin and provide a cool, breathable surface to sleep on.
Pros and Cons
- Luxury sleeping experience at a bargain price.
- Stays cool at night.
- Highly responsive – great if you turn a lot at night and excellent for amorous couples.
- No motion transfer.

- Eco-friendly materials.

The Nest Hybrid Latex Mattress is Perfect For You If…

If like me, you are always on the lookout for great bargains on an organic mattress, this is hard to pass up.
The Nest Hybrid Latex is one of the most luxurious online organic mattresses sold today – but at a price that's about half of organic and natural mattresses sold in most stores.
