Sealy Hybrid Premium Mattress Reviews – Is the Silver Chill for You?

Sealy Hybrid Premium Mattress Reviews – Is the Silver Chill for You?

[music] Logan: Hi, it’s Logan from Today, we’re taking a look at the Sealy Hybrid
Premium mattress. The Sealy Hybrid line has three different
levels. There’s Sealy Hybrid Essentials, Performance,
and Premium. Premium being the most expensive. I will have reviews for the Hybrid Essentials
and Performance on the site as well. We’ll have the links of those reviews in the
description below for interested in checking those out. I’m going to put this mattress through a few
tests today and get some general recommendations at the end of the review. If you are interested in a personal recommendation,
please feel free to leave a note in the comments section below with some information about
yourself and some of your sleep preferences. I’ll be sure to get back to you. I’m going to start out the review talking
about the construction of the mattress. I’ll begin with the cover. The cover is a knit cover. It’s made with Sealy’s ChillTech technology. It’s meant to make you feel cooler during
the middle of the night, help make sure you don’t overheat. It is actually pretty cool to the touch. It’s also pretty stretchy. You won’t have to worry about it bunching
up when you’re rolling around changing positions. It does have a little bit of a thickness to
it, which gives it this inherent softness and coziness to it. Let’s get a look underneath the mattress at
the layers of the Sealy Hybrid Premium mattress. [music] Logan: Now let’s talk about the layers of
the Sealy Hybrid Premium mattress. I should point out that this mattress does
come in three different firmness levels, the ultra plush, plush and firm. Today, we’re looking at the firm version of
the mattress. On top, we have the comfort layer, which is
a memory foam. It’s about this thick. It is a thicker layer of memory foam than
on the Essentials version of this mattress. Also, it’s a really dense memory foam. You can see it has a slow response to pressure. As you’re sinking in, you’re really going
to feel that contouring, that hug around your body. A lot of times, memory foams can be known
to trap a lot of body heat. People can complain that making them overheat
during the middle of the night, but they’ve actually had a gel and fusion. It’s made with chill according to Sealy. That is going to help draw heat away from
the sleeper, help them sleep cooler during the night. Below that comfort layer of memory foam, we
have a pocketed coil system. This is a Posturepedic zoned, pocketed coil
system. It’s individually wrapped coils going throughout
the support system and through the center of the support system. There’s actually more coils which is going
to help to support the heavier portion of your body, your hips, things like that to
help with spine alignment. Around the edge of the mattress are actually
an edge support coil system. Smaller coils also individually wrapped that
go around the entirety of the Sealy Hybrid Premium mattress which is going to allow you
to sleep a little further towards the sides. When you get closer to the edge, it’s not
going to collapse aside. You can use more of the mattress. [music] Logan: Now we’ve seen what makes up the Sealy
Hybrid Premium mattress. It’s time to get an idea for the feel and
firmness of it. I’m going to start by pressing into the cover. The first thing I feel is that comfort layer
of memory foam. Really soft, allows me sinking pretty easily
and feel it contouring around my hand. As I lie down on my back here, give it a second. My weight is pretty evenly distributed. Even so, I do feel myself sinking into the
mattress, filling in the space and with my lower back, which is nice for back sleepers. I will say, as I change positions and roll
around because of that slow response to pressure from the memory foam, definitely, feel like
I’m a little more stuck in the mattress. If you’re a combo sleeper and if you like
feeling a little bit more on top of the bed, that might be an issue for you. As I get a little closer to the side here,
check out the edge support on the mattress. Support is something that can be really important
if you sleep with a partner. If you need to use the entire surface area
of the bed, you don’t want it to collapse on the side, make it feel like you’re going
to roll out of bed or anything like that. We did talk before during the construction
portion about the edge support coils, which are all the way around the sides of this mattress. As you can see, there are holding up really
well here. I’m really impressed with the edge support
for the Sealy Hybrid Premium mattress. I’m going to roll on my side here, test it
up for side sleepers. [pause] Logan: Side sleepers, in general, do tend
to prefer softer mattresses. Something that you can sink into because you
are on your side, you’re concentrating all that weight on a smaller surface area. It pushes you further into the mattress. You tend to interact more with the support
portions of a mattress. Those firmer portions which can cause issues
with pressure at the shoulders and the hips. We are going to take a closer look at pressure
later on in the review. I did just want to say that even though this
is the firm version of the Sealy Hybrid Premium mattress, I do feel that it is pretty soft. It’s that thick layer of memory foam on top,
allows me to sink in for pressure relief. I do think that this is a great mattress for
side sleepers. I’m going to roll on my stomach. [pause] Logan: Stomach sleepers tend to be the opposite
of side sleepers. They like firmer mattresses. Your hips can tend to be the heavier portion
of your body. They push them in the mattress. A firmer mattress will help you keep your
hips up, keep your spine aligned in a good position. Like I said, even though this is the firm
version of the Sealy Hybrid Premium mattress. I do feel that it’s a bit on the softer side. I can feel my hips sinking in which over time
can cause some issues with a pain in the back. Some aches there. The firmness of the mattress is an opinion
because of different sizes and weight distribution. For reference, about 5’10”, 190 pounds. If you would like a wider variety of opinions
on the firmness of this mattress, a little bit more detailed description on the feel
of it, you can check out my written review at [music] Logan: Instead of just describing the feel
of the Sealy Hybrid mattress to you, let me give you a visual representation of where
pressure points may form while lying on the mattress. I’ve placed this pressure map on top and I’m
going to lie down on it in a few different positions. You will see results next to me ranging from
blue for low pressure, to red for high pressure. [music] Logan: Just to give you an idea of the bounce
of the Sealy Hybrid Premium, I have this 10-pound steel ball and I’m dropping it here. As you can see, there’s really not much bounce
on this mattress. That credit that to the thick memory foam
comfort layer does a good job of dimming that. It’s not that quick response to pressure you
might expect out of a lot of innerspring or hybrid mattresses. The thick dense memory foam on top does a
good job of dampening that. While we’re here, we’re also going to run
a quick motion transfer test. Basically, I’m going to drop the same ball
from heights of 4, 8 and 12 inches, which is going to simulate someone getting into
and out of bed or rolling around in the middle of the night. On the other side of the mattress, I have
a seismometer which measures the disturbance as transferred with each of those drops. Now that we have the results up on screen,
you can see this is really a good performance on the motion transferred tests, in my opinion. The thick memory foam, the pocketed coils
which are individually wrapped do a good job of isolating motion transfer. If you do sleep with a partner and someone
rolls around in the middle of the night on the other side of the bed or gets into and
out of bed, go to the bathroom, something like that. You shouldn’t be too disturbed by their movement. [music] Logan: A lot of people buying a mattress are
going to want to know if they’re going to feel like they’re sitting on top of or sinking
into bed. To test this on the Sealy Hybrid Premium mattress,
we have this sinkage test in which we use four balls of varying sizes, weights and densities,
simulate different body parts and try to see how far into the mattress they go. This six-pound medicine ball. It’s filled with sand, simulates a lighter
body part. I found that it sinks in about an inch-and-a-half. Next step, we have the 10-pound steel ball,
the densest ball we use during this test, and it sinks into the Sealy Hybrid Premium
mattress about two-and-a-half inches. After that, we had the 50-pound medicine ball. It’s filled with sand. It seems a heavier portion of your body, think
of your shoulders, your hips. Sinks into the mattress about four inches. Finally, the 100-pound medicine ball. Again, filled with sand. If you’re a bit heavier so it’s that center
of your body. Then, we found that it sinks into the Sealy
Hybrid premium mattress about six inches. When compared to other mattresses that I’ve
tested, the 6 and the 10-pound steel ball are definitely, more sinkage than what I’m
used to seeing on the mattress whereas the 50 and 100-pound medicine ball is about on
average for one compared to other mattresses on the market. I credit this to the fact that with the 6
and 10-pound steel ball you are sinking into that dense memory foams. You’re going to get that sinking in feeling,
the contouring around your body. With the 50 and 100-pound medicine ball, you’re
pushing through that and starting to get that support from the pocketed coil system. Even with the average sinkage for the 50 and
100-pound medicine balls, because of that slow response to pressure, you’re definitely
going to feel more in the mattress. You’re going to have definitely a little bit
more energy needed to change positions, which could be a problem for combo sleepers. [music] Logan: Just to give you some basic information
about the Sealy Hybrid Premium Mattress, Sealy doesn’t sell this mattress directly to consumers,
but it is available at places like Sears. Sears offers a 180-day trial period. You just have to try it for 30 days first. They also offer free shipping on all mattresses
over $599. There’s also a 10-year warranty on this mattress. Some of the reasons I really like the Sealy
Hybrid Premium mattress is that it’s great for side sleepers. That thick memory foam comfort layer really
allows you to sink in for pressure relief, which is great for side sleepers who often
have issues with pressure at the shoulders and hips. I’d also recommend this mattress to couples. It’s great performance on the motion transfer
portion of the review. Also, I’ve found that this has great edge
support. I was really impressed with that, thanks to
the edge support coils that wrapped around it the entirety of the support system of this
mattress. Finally, I would recommend this mattress because
for those that are looking for a memory foam feel but want to sleep cool, the memory foam
can at times be known for trapping a lot of body heat. There are a lot of portions of the construction
of this mattress in the cover. The special memory foam use and also the pocketed
coils, creating airspace for air flow through the mattress. All those things work together to create a
cooler mattress. Some of the reasons I would say that maybe
the Sealy Hybrid Premium isn’t for you is if you’re a stomach sleeper. In my opinion, even the firm version of this
mattress is on the softer side, so you are going to have your hips sinking in, which
over time can cause some aches in the lower back. Also, I would say, if you’re a combo sleeper,
you might want to be careful with this mattress because you’re sinking in. That slow response to pressure from the memory
foam mattress might feel a little bit stuck in it when you’re rolling around. Those are some really general recommendations
if you are looking for a personal recommendation, please feel free to leave a note in the comment
section below with some information about yourself and some of your sleep preferences. I’ll make sure to get back to you. Also, if your mattress search has just begun,

  1. Thank you so much for the review. I purchased a Sealy Response Premium Plush one month ago and I continue to toss and turn side to side. I am a side sleeper, 5'11", 210 lbs. I sleep hot! Memory form has always scared the hell out of me. However, my Sealy Response Premium Plush has not helped me from tossing and turning from left side to right side. I have a 120 night guarantee, and am considering this mattress. Thoughts? My shoulders hurt. I'm 56 years old.

  2. Thanks for all the great reviews! I'm looking to switch from an old lumpy innerspring, because I'm a side sleeper and tend to have really bad shoulder pain/tenseness, and sometimes lower back pain too. Presumably because of my mattress. I'm a 20 year old male, 6'1, 180 pounds. I toss and turn a bit in the night and don't always sleep in the same position, but I don't thrash around or anything. I never fall asleep on my back (always wanted to, never been able to), but occasionally I fall asleep on my stomach when I can't get comfortable on my side. I've never had an issue with sleeping hot or anything. I'm thinking of getting an Amerisleep AS4, since it's pretty soft I think it'd be a good choice. I see that you also recommend mattresses like the Leesa and the Casper for side sleepers, even though they're firmer. What do you think I should go with? Thanks! 🙂

  3. I so love your site! Happy to have found your YouTube channel. My husband and I definitely need a new mattress!!! I am going on 28 hours of no sleep. Our current pillowtop innerspring mattress has broken down being in storage and because of being in storage seems to have collected allergins that cause my husband misery all night.
    We are both on the bigger side. 260lbs each. Prefer to sleep on our sides but find we both roll to our backs often trying to relieve pain. Both of us have major issues with both our hips, back, and shoulders. (Rebuilt shoulder from accident, current torn rotator cuff. Hip bursitis, ankylosing sponylitis with the low back, and si joint dysfunction) we NEVER make it through a night without pain. On top of it all menopause and constant hot flashes. In the 15-60 min it takes me to get to sleep I will overheat and throw blankets of and on 3-8 times. tried multiple blankets and mattress toppers nothing helps. Motion transfer makes me feel like I am being tossed out of bed not helping the sleep at all.
    Been reading reviews about this bed, brooklyn Aurora and the new purple hybrid, well reading about so many actually. those are the 3 I have been debating. Do you have any recommendations for what you think would be best? Not looking to solve it all that sounds like a pipe dream, but I need sleep!!!!

  4. Great review! I am considering on purchasing the sealy silver chill or the tempur pedic flex supreme. I am a combo sleeper. Any recommendation?

  5. Thanks for this review. My wife and I just purchase this mattress (Sealy Hybrid Premium Silver Chill Firm) after seeing your review and trying it out at the store several times. Fast forward to a few days ago when it was delivered and it is as hard as a rock! Nothing like what it felt in the store. How long does it take for a mattress like this to "break in"? I realize the one in the store has people in and out of the bed all day, but should I be concerned if it doesn't feel the same immediately, after the first week, or first 30 days?

  6. Thanks for your review and information. Great site! My wife and I narrowed it down to the Silver Chill Firm or the Kellburn ii after trying them both in the showrooms. I'm a stomach, back, and occasional side sleeper and my wife is a side and back sleeper. We are leaning towards the silver chill but are concerned about the comments of it being firmer than the showroom itself. For example, we thought the Copper ii firm was too firm. Will the Silver Chill firm be "softer" than the Copper ii? Any advice/ suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  7. I"m a combo sleeper. I sleep on all my sides. What might you recommend? Also something that is good for nocturnal activities with the Mrs.

  8. Great video. Out of all models we really like this one but the sign at city furniture said the mattress was a “cushion firm” does this mean it’s just firm? Also I prefer plush and my bf prefers firm. Do you think this is a happy medium that can keep us both happy for years?

  9. BUYER BEWARE – Obnoxious chemical smell is not to be underestimated! Upon arrival smell was so overpowering that despite it being in a closed room with windows open and 3 fans on it, we were awakened in the night due to obnoxious chemical smell and coughing attack despite not even being in the same room as the mattress.
    Now 6 weeks later, the smell has dissipated slightly, but it is still very noticeable when you enter the room that it is being stored in. We are in the process of trying to return the mattress…which has been an nightmare, despite not having slept on it and notifying the company something was wrong the morning after it’s arrival.
    I simply can’t recommend this mattress to anyone who values their health.

  10. We purchased the Gold model Ultra plush model and LOVE IT!!! We did try the purple 4 and it was not a good fit. Oddly it ended up hurting my hips and my husband and I had issues with our shoulders feeling crushed. We are lightweight people and I definitely need a plush style. This Gold version is outstanding!! I don't feel stuck, more like a super cushy feel with nice support! It also sleeps cooler for us than the purple which is weird!! No problem with motion transfer either.

  11. Your videos have been so helpful! I have a question about the Sealy silver chill mattress. If we use a mattress protector, will we still get the benefits of the cooling mattress top? Trying to determine if it's worth spending the extra money for the silver chill mattress vs. the copper ii. My husband and I are both primarily side sleepers with occasional back sleeping for my husband. Thank you for your assistance!

  12. Thanks for all the informative reviews! How does the Sealy Hybrid Silver Chill Firm compare to the Winkbed Luxury Firm? Wife and I are older combo sleepers (mostly side) with back, hip and shoulder soreness. We tried the Silver Chill in the store and loved it. My only complaint was that it was a little difficult to turn over in it. We've been sleeping on a first-gen Tempurpedic for years. Tired of the heat and it's hard on our hips and shoulders though I feel we sink in too much. Maybe the Winkbed is a good alternative to the Silver Chill? Or perhaps the Silver Chill is best and more effort to roll over is the price of super comfy and supportive. Any other suggestions? Thanks!

  13. I was able to lay on the plush version of this mattress in a local store and liked it a lot. However, I weight 230 and feel my weight drove me deeper through the foam on top into the next layer. Is the different levels of firmness determined by the top layer or the coil section below? I’m wondering if I go with the firm version if the top layer will be just a little bit more supportive? Previous mattresses I’ve tried it feels like I “bottomed out” through the memory foam. I’m a back and side sleeper with periodic lower back issues.

  14. I'm 145 lbs and 5'10", 60 years old, and am mostly a back sleeper. I also sometimes lie on my sides, but I always seem to wake up on my back. I have some back and hip pain, primarily due to bad posture (working on it) which is very noticeable on some mornings. I'm looking for a queen mattress. I'm not particularly cost sensitive, for example I don't mind spending enough to get a top of the line Beautyrest Black K-class if that's the right mattress.

    I have a preference for natural materials, although not to the extent that I want to give up comfort. We have a Sealy Posturepedic from about 15 years ago that I still really like. Firm but nicely compliant. I think I have a preference for sleeping on top, not "in", a mattress, and I want good bounce so I can turn over easily. Based on my on-line reviews, the Wink bed and Saatva look good, but I'm not sure how these compare to the more traditional suppliers like Sealy and Beautyrest.

    Would appreciate any recommendations.
