Casper is a popular bed-in-a-box brand, and we’ve taken a look at the Original, Essential, and Wave models. Today, we’re going to be unboxing a brand new member of the Casper family with the Casper Hybrid.
If you liked the idea of the excellent contour and motion isolation of the original Casper but are worried an all-foam mattress isn’t going to offer enough bounce, the Casper Hybrid eliminated the 5 ½ inch polyfoam base and replaced it with a bouncier, more supportive seven inches pocketed coil unit.
It often comes as a surprise they can fit an innerspring queen mattress in a box this size, but it’s actually very common. So, let’s take a look at what we’ve got here.
Casper Hybrid Initial Impressions
Now that it’s all opened and has had some time to decompress, let’s talk initial impressions. This product definitely features more bounce than the original Casper, but I’m still able to enjoy that unique memory foam contour in layer two.
The innerspring unit is advertised as being resilient yet gentle, and it makes total sense when you feel it. While I can tell there’s increased support as compared with the original Casper mattress, you really can’t tell there are springs involved in the layer lineup. In our complete review, we’ll break down the complete layer lineup and how it works to help you move around and get in and out of bed.

The Perfect Balance of Soft and Firm
I spent a considerable amount of time researching the Casper Hybrid mattress as I waited for it to arrive, and I saw it described as the “perfect balance of soft and firm”. This was rather confusing to me until I actually lied down for myself. The foam doesn’t feel overly firm. However, you still get a good degree of support when you sit on the edge.
As I go through my complete testing process, I’ll be taking a look at the firmness and contour to see how it performs when various weights are placed on our proprietary testing tool. This will give us a better idea of what body types will be best suited for this unique firmness.
Over the course of the next couple weeks, we’re going to be closely examining the new Casper Hybrid and determining the effect the new innerspring base has had on the issue we saw last time with inadequate support for heavier people. Be sure to check back in to see what we find out!
Just a few other aspects we’ll be covering in complete detail include:
- Heat transfer
- Edge support
- Durability expectations
- Motion transfer
- Complete layer lineup
- And much more!
