Review: HIBR Memory Foam Mattress – Sweet Dreams are Made of This

by Paul Strauss

My wife and I have been in the market for a new mattress, and we’ve been debating between going with an old school spring mattress or a modern memory foam one. Along the way, I stumbled onto a new mattress company called HIBR, whose aim is to create comfortable and supportive mattresses that take advantage of the latest in foam technologies without breaking the bank.

The HIBR mattress is made using three layers, each with different properties. The bottom layer is a dense and supportive foundation, while the middle layer provides cushioning and adapts to your body, and the top layer uses a carbon-based polymer to provide cooling. Total thickness of the HIBR mattress is 11″.

Traditionally, you’d have to go to a bedding store to buy a mattress, then wait for a delivery crew to show up and bring the mattress to your house. But HIBR takes advantage of the properties of foam, which allow it to compress down significantly for shipping, but immediately regain its shape once unpacked. You see the box in the photo below? That had an entire King-size bed inside of it.

Just unpack, remove the outer wrap, and voilà, you have a mattress in seconds. The memory properties of the foam are truly extraordinary, and the mattress came out perfectly flat the second we unwrapped it. The mattress is happy on just about any surface, from a traditional box spring, to slats, or even directly on the floor. In our case, we had our old box spring.

The HIBR has a built-in mattress cover, which can be unzipped and washed. This cover serves a dual purpose, keeping your mattress fresh and clean, and also acting as a fire-retardant layer.

Of course, the main question is how good is the HIBR to sleep on? Well, the answer is simple. It’s extraordinary. Within a day or two, my wife and I were both experiencing the soundest sleeps we had in years. The combination of support, cooling, and adaptation to your body provides a feeling of comfort and envelopment which will lull you to sleep and keep you there for hours. Honestly, I think I forgot how vividly I could dream.

As a bonus, the foam does a good job isolating movements from the other side of the bed, so if your sleep companion does toss and turn or get up earlier than you, you won’t notice it. The only thing that took a little getting used to was sitting on the edge of the bed to put on my shoes in the morning – because my weight isn’t distributed across the mattress, I feel like I sink in a bit more than I’m used to. Still, that’s a minor trade-off for an amazing night’s sleep.

Of course, every person has individual needs and preferences for their sleep, and you really need to sleep on a mattress before you can say 100% that it’s right for you. To that end, HIBR offers a 100-night sleep guarantee. That’s in addition to the 10-year warranty they offer for physical defects in the mattress itself.

HIBR Mattresses are made in the USA and reasonably priced, with the prices ranging from $600 for a Twin to $950 for a King or California King. Those prices include free shipping anywhere in the U.S., and HIBR also offers an installment payment option too. Given the fact that a Tempur-Pedic foam mattress will set you back $1200 to $6000, it’s a real bargain.

I wholeheartedly recommend the HIBR mattress. It’s well made, offers great support and comfort, and definitely improved my sleep in a very short period of time. If you’re in the market for a mattress, you should definitely put HIBR high on your list.

    Have y’all missed Casper mattresses? They’ve been doing this for a couple years now. Total knock off.

    • Paul Strauss says:

      Fully aware of Casper – but the HIBR is a little thicker and the overall design is more appealing.

    • Sara K. says:

      Okay – I have to laugh at the Casper comment. I have friends that have Casper mattresses, (and pillows) and I specifically avoided buying one because of their comments to me when I asked what they thought of theirs. It looks like Casper puts way more into marketing than they do the actual product. I don’t feel that way about my HIBR at all. I’ve been sleeping on it for about a month and I’m glad that I went with that choice. Definitely my most comfortable mattress yet.

  2. Sherry says:

    what made you choose this brand over all the other direct to consumer foam mattress? I just decided to try the Leesa brand, but have not purchased yet. There isnt much on the internet about HIBR yet, how did you find it? The article does not mention if you received the product in exchange for a review or if you paid for it yourself.

    • Paul Strauss says:

      Sherry: HIBR actually let us know about their mattress, and did ship me one for review. Regardless, I would never give a product a good review if it wasn’t actually good. It’s truly an excellent mattress, and I sleep like a baby on it.
