The Simba Hybrid 2500 is a great example of a hybrid mattress. No longer do you have to choose between a foam base or a spring base as the Hybrid features both – and in plentiful quantities. This model combines the best of both worlds to create something innovative, comfortable and cool enough to keep you sleeping at night thanks to new and breathable layers that improve upon the existing Simba Original Mattress.
The mattress now consists of multiple layers of foam work alongside the high quality 2500 pocket springs to offer unparalleled support that will appeal to both back and side sleepers alike. Onto the comfort layer and you get the dependable and well-loved memory foam with charcoal infusion (to assist with breathability), this isn’t necessarily something we haven’t seen before, and while this time round it is being referred to as Simbatex® it is actually very similar to the foam offered in many Mlily mattresses.
Who is This Mattress For?
The Simba Hybrid 2500 is for anyone who wants a comfortable, long-lasting bed with a great bounce. This mattress will suit stomach and back sleepers, as well as side sleepers thanks to the hybrid design and its medium-firm tension. This hybrid model can also be a great choice for couples, since it can conform to the shape of each person’s body with no roll-together combined with no roll-off which allows for an uninterrupted night's sleep. If you want a high-quality mattress that will last for years, this could be the one for you.
The Good Stuff
The Simba Hybrid 2500 comes with a number of great features. The first of these is the design, which is a clever hybrid model. The top layer of memory foam historically performs well for pressure relief. The bottom layers offer enough body contouring to provide back and neck support for those looking for a necessary amount of back and neck pain relief. Combining these two materials in one mattress means that the mattress is durable, comfortable and consumer focussed. This hybrid model also comes with the charcoal infusion in the foam which works with the breathable pocket spring layer to ensure that you won’t get too hot while you’re sleeping. This is great for anyone who suffers from overheating while they sleep.
The Bad Stuff
As with all hybrid mattresses, the more layers you have the heavier it gets and the result of such a high quality mattress is that the Simba Hybrid 2500 is quite heavy and without handles to assist in rotation. This isn’t necessarily too much of an issue, but it does mean you lose out on one of the key benefits of the bed-in-a-box era around ease of movement surrounding setup and rotation. This hybrid model is also a bit on the pricey side, so it might not be the best choice for people who are on a budget.
The Simba Hybrid 2500 is a high-quality hybrid model that will provide you with years of restful sleep. This hybrid model is great for most sleepers thanks to its combination of materials that provide comfort, durability, and bounce. If you’re looking for a high-quality hybrid mattress that will last you for years, this is the one for you thanks to the included 10 year guarantee. Reviews are coming in thick and fast and there are now enough long term reviews to help back up your decision and allow you to purchase in confidence regardless of how you sleep. Finally, the Simba Hybrid is sold through numerous retail channels but still retains its 60-night sleep trial meaning that if you are not satisfied with it, you can replace it and not be out of pocket financially.
Reasons to Buy
Good quality at a fair price point that might be a bit over-budget for some, but still should appeal to a large segment.
Sleep trial might not be as good as Emma, but will be enough to determine whether or not you like it.
Plenty of reviews including long term ones for customers to gain confidence in the product.
Reasons to Avoid
Competition in the hybrid segment is growing and while the Simba performs well, the price point alienates those looking for something a bit more budget. At time of writing we have reviewed an Emma Essential Mattress that might suit this budget segment a little better.
