Zinus Hybrid Green Tea Foam and Spring Mattress
Zinus Hybrid Green Tea Foam and Spring Mattress
The mattress layers
This Zinus mattress is one of the cheapest mattresses they offer but that doesn’t mean it is of low quality. This mattress comes in 6, 8, 10 and 12 inches. Manufactured with care, the Zinus Hybrid mattress is made of two different materials, that is, foam and springs. It consists of only three layers, whereas some more expansive models consist of five to six layers. The first layer is a layer of Green Tea infused viscolatex foam, which serves as a comfort layer. Below it is a high-density foam layer that adds support and firmness. The third and final layer is a 6 inch layer of coil springs. The cover is a high quality fiber quilted material cover with simple design in white color. The thicker the mattress, the softer it is, as the top layers are thicker as well.
Quality of material and certifications
All Zinus mattresses, including the Hybrid Green Tea Foam and Spring Mattress, are CertiPUR-US certified for performance and materials. That means there are no harsh chemicals used in production of this mattress and it is completely safe for use. This mattress does not contain formaldehyde, mercury, chlorofluorocarbons and PBDE flame-retardants that most mattresses on the market contain. The materials are durable and perform well in terms of their capabilities. As mentioned above, the viscolatex foam layer is infused with green tea extract, as well as Castor Natural Seed Oil which is meant to reduce odors. This combination was created to reduce off gassing and keeps the mattress fresh for a longer time, however, some customers have still complained about a noticeable odor when first opening the mattress. That odor disappears within a few hours of airing out.
How it feels and the overall experience
The Zinus Hybrid Green Tea Foam and Spring mattress is a simple combination of a spring layer and two foam layers. The spring layer adds firmness is quite responsive to the movement of the sleeper. This may compromise motion transfer, which means this mattress is not the best option for couples sleeping together. The high density foam on top of the coil springs provides support while keeping the mattress firm. Only the top viscolatex foam layer and the cover add some softness to the mattress, which makes the Zinus Hybrid a medium firm to firm mattress. The overall sleep experience can be described as average, since there are plenty of other Zinus mattresses that provide a much better sleep experience. However, this mattress cannot be classified as a low quality mattress since it does provide average comfort like any other basic mattress model. With only three layers, the support you get is quite good for an average sleeper and back sleepers are especially going to appreciate this model because of the firmness it offers. Heat regulation this mattress offers is not the best but you still won’t be overheating during your night’s sleep. With durable materials and the combination of inner springs and foam, the Zinus Hybrid green tea Foam and Spring mattress offers a decent comfort and a good night’s sleep.
Pricing and other details
The 8 inch Zinus Hybrid mattress comes at the price of 86$, which is very affordable when it comes to mattresses. The price, however, doesn’t indicate that the mattress is cheaply made. It is true that there are plenty of better performing mattresses on the market but this mattress is also made of high quality materials and for this much money it does a great job at providing comfort and support. Even though it is designed in USA, like all Zinus mattresses, this mattress is also made in China. The product is shipped directly, compressed in a box. Even though this is an effective way to ship a mattress, being compressed in a box may damage the product. Therefore, it is recommended to open the package immediately and let the mattress lay on a flat surface to be able to extend to its full length and shape. This process may take two to three days. As all Zinus mattresses, the Hybrid Green Tea Foam and Spring Mattress comes with a 10 year limited warranty for all manufacturing errors. There is no specified trial period for this product and, if you decide to return it, you will have to contact the manufacturer to discuss the matter.
