Here’s a closer look at the individual layers. Note that the coils are inside the middle of the mattress.

My Bear Hybrid Findings

The Bear mattress has a more plush feel than the original Bear mattress. When compared to other micro coil and foam mattress the Bear is one of the most plush I have tried. In the picture below you can see that the cover plays a large role in the cushy feel. The cover is quilted and super soft so you get a nice hug when you lie down.

The coils in this mattress aren’t really there to provide any bounce. Instead, they are used for breathability and for support. The coils are firm enough to provide subtle contouring but not too firm where you feel like you have to find them to get comfortable.

Here’s a video illustrating motion transfer on the mattress. As you can see, the motion transfer is minimal and similar to an all-foam bed with a pillow top feel.

To access the inside of the mattress, there’s a zipper located at the bottom corner. There’s really no reason you would need to access the inside but if you want to take a peek at how it’s made this is the way to do it.

Here’s a video that shows how each layer reacts. Notice that the top layer is made with a more springy foam. Normally mattresses that use this type of foam on the top layer don’t conform all that well but since the cover is made with a thick quilted padding, that’s not the case with this mattress.

Here’s another shot of the top layer of the mattress. As you can see there are actually two pieces of foam side by side on this mattress. I’m not sure why it was designed this way other than to reduce motion tranfer among partners. Since it is cut in half, you won’t get any pulling in either direction.

Here’s a clip that shows where the springs are located in the Bear Hybrid mattress. I had to cut into the mattress and tear out some foam to get to, which I don’t recommend but I wanted to ensure that they are there so readers know how they work.

Below is a video shot with my thermal camera to illustrate heat retention. You will see in the video that heat doesn’t linger on the mattress all that long. I was really suprised by this result as I though the quilted cover would trap more heat than it did.

My Bear Hybrid Mattress Recommendation

Bear is a mattress fits well with an athletic lifestyle. The Celliant technology in this mattress is great for people who regularly exercise and need to recover to their fullest for the next day. As I understand the technology, the benefits of the fiber will penetrate through a mattress pad and set of sheets so it’s ok to add layers to the mattress. I really like mattresses that come with this type of added benefit. If you have to go to bed anyway, you might as well get something else out of the mattress. while you sleep.

Another type of technology similar to this is the Tom Brady pajamas from Under Armor. These use a material that seems to be similar to Celliant. What I like about the Bear Mattress is that you don’t have to remember to wear the same pajamas every night, you simply go to sleep in a great mattress.

I recommend the Bear Hybrid mattress to people who are interested in trying Celliant technology, want a mattress with more of a plush feel but don’t like the stuck in the mud feeling of an all foam mattress and a mattress that sleeps relatively cool.

  1. What kind of a base does this need? Will a traditional box spring work, or does it need a different base?
