Unboxing the Eco Terra Hybrid Latex
Eco Terra knows that the unboxing experience is important to customers. That's why they make it simple to get your new mattress ready to sleep on right away.
The Eco Terra Hybrid Latex mattress arrives in a box that weighs between 59 and 127 pounds. Thick cardboard and plastic wrap protect the Eco Terra Hybrid Latex mattress, which is also compressed into a roll for easy maneuvering.
To set up the mattress, you will need a friend or family member to help you. First, carry the box to your bedroom. Then, carefully unroll the mattress and place it on your bed. Be sure to position the mattress so that the corners are aligned with the corners of your bed.
Once the mattress is in place, carefully cut the plastic wrapping. The mattress will begin to expand immediately. Within seconds, it will reach its full height of 11 inches.
The Eco Terra Hybrid Latex mattress's excellent corner expansion is evident in its sleek, seamless look. When you unroll the mattress, its corners expand all the way to the very edges, providing support throughout the entire surface area of the bed, especially the edges.
You may notice a slight odor when you first unbox the Eco Terra Hybrid Latex mattress. This is normal and harmless; it is caused by the natural latex materials off-gassing after being compressed. The odor will dissipate within a few hours, and you'll be able to sleep on the mattress comfortably.
Firmness, Feel, and Comfort For Eco Terra Hybrid Latex
Eco Terra Hybrid Latex Firmness
The firmness of a mattress is subjective, and what feels comfortable to one person may not feel comfortable to another. The Eco Terra Hybrid Latex mattress offers two firmness options to accommodate a variety of preferences.
The two firmness options are medium and medium-firm. The medium firmness is advertised as a 5.5 on the firmness scale, while the medium-firm is advertised as an 8. However, our reviewers found that the medium-firm felt more like a 7.
The medium firmness mattress is a good option for people who want a soft and comfortable mattress. It is also a good option for side sleepers, as it provides good support for the shoulders and hips.
The medium-firm mattress is a good option for people who want a firmer mattress. It is also a good option for back and stomach sleepers, as it provides good support for the spine.
|Choose Medium If:||Choose Medium-Firm If:|
|Side Sleeper||Stomach/Back/Combination Sleeper|
Ultimately, the best way to determine which firmness option is right for you is to try it out in person. Eco Terra offers a 90-night sleep trial, so you can try the mattress out for yourself and return it if you are not satisfied.
Eco Terra Hybrid Latex Feel
When you lie on the cover of the Eco Terra Hybrid Latex mattress, you should notice a plush, soft, and temperature-neutral feel. The cover is made of organic cotton, which is a breathable material that helps regulate temperatures. The latex layers below the cover are also breathable.
The upper comfort layer is made of Dunlop latex, which is a soft and bouncy material. This layer provides a contouring effect that cradles the body and promotes pressure relief. The coil system provides support and bounce, while the latex responds quickly to movement. This allows combination sleepers to reposition freely throughout the night.
As you settle onto the mattress, the coils will compress in more concentrated areas, like the hips and shoulders. This allows for deeper sinkage in these areas, which can help relieve pressure and promote alignment. Areas that put less pressure on the bed, like the head and feet, will float on top of the mattress. This is because the coils will stand firm beneath these body parts.
Eco Terra Hybrid Latex Comfort
The Eco Terra medium-firm mattress is a comfortable mattress that provides excellent support and pressure relief. It is made with organic latex, which is a soft and bouncy material that contours to the body. The coil system provides additional support, and the mattress feels cooler than some other mattresses.
The Eco Terra medium-firm mattress is a good choice for back and stomach sleepers. The firm support of the mattress helps to align the spine and prevent pain. The mattress is also comfortable for combination sleepers, who may switch between back and stomach sleeping positions throughout the night.
The Eco Terra medium-firm mattress is a good choice for heavy sleepers. The firm support of the mattress can help prevent sinking and provide the necessary support for a good night's sleep.
Side sleepers may prefer the medium model of the Eco Terra mattress. The medium model is slightly softer than the medium-firm model, and it may provide more comfort for side sleepers. However, the medium-firm model can still be comfortable for side sleepers.
The Medium-Firm Model:
|Sleeper Weight||Back Sleepers||Side Sleepers||Stomach Sleepers|
|Lightweight (Under 150 lb)||Excellent||Good||Excellent|
|Average (150 – 250 lb)||Excellent||Very Good||Excellent|
|Above Average (Over 250 lb)||Excellent||Excellent||Excellent|
We will discuss the pressure-relieving properties of this mattress later in our review.
Constructions, Materials, and Design
Materials and Design
The Eco Terra mattress is made in the USA and is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). This means that the mattress is made with organic materials and is produced in an environmentally friendly way.
It is a latex and coil hybrid 11-inch mattress that is made with natural materials. The cover is made of certified organic cotton, and the inner layers are made of Dunlop latex foam, rubber, and wool. The pocketed coils provide support and bounce, while the latex layers provide pressure relief and comfort.
- Certified organic cotton cover: This layer is made of soft, breathable, and temperature-regulating 100% certified organic cotton that is free of chemicals and pesticides. It is also moisture-wicking.
- Wool fire barrier: This layer is made of natural wool, which is a naturally fire-resistant material that helps protect the mattress from fire. Wool also has unique properties that fight dust mites and mildew.
- Dunlop latex comfort layer: The 3-inch Dunlop latex comfort layer is soft and bouncy, providing pressure relief. It is what determines the mattress's firmness, depending on the density of the latex.
- Pocketed coil support core: This 9-inch core provides support and helps reduce motion transfer. It is made of individually wrapped coils that are heat-treated and stress-relieved to provide firm edge-to-edge support that lasts. Each spring is encased in food-grade polypropylene fabric that is both non-woven and non-toxic. This unique casing allows the springs to float independently, which improves airflow, support, and spinal alignment.
Performance of Eco Terra Hybrid Latex
The Eco Terra Hybrid Latex mattress is a cooling option for hot sleepers. It is made with a combination of natural materials that wick away moisture and heat, including cotton, wool, and Dunlop latex. The pocketed coil core also helps to dissipate heat.
The Eco Terra Hybrid Latex mattress performed well in our cooling test. After lying on it for 20 minutes, the heat buildup was minimal, and we felt cool throughout the test. However, we could still feel a slight difference in temperature between the slept-in and unoccupied areas.
Though the medium option conforms more closely, the natural materials in the comfort system are breathable. Both firmness options will maintain a temperature-neutral feel. We give it a 4.6/5 rating for its cooling performance.
The Eco Terra Hybrid Latex mattress is a responsive mattress, making it easy for sleepers to change positions and move around. The coils in the hybrid construction provide bounce and support, while the buoyant latex comfort layer helps facilitate movement.
To test the responsiveness of the Eco Terra Hybrid Latex mattress, we performed our standard test. We placed a 20-pound ball on the mattress and measured how long it took for the mattress to return to its original shape. The mattress bounced back almost instantly, in exactly 0.5 seconds. This indicates that the mattress is very responsive.
We gave the medium-firm model of this mattress a 4.9/5 rating for responsiveness. This means that it is a great choice for sleepers who want a mattress that is easy to move around on.
The Eco Terra Hybrid Latex mattress is a hybrid mattress, which means that it has a combination of innerspring coils and foam layers. Hybrid mattresses are typically more responsive than foam mattresses. However, this responsiveness may backfire on motion isolation.
The Eco Terra Hybrid Latex mattress has individually encased coils, which helps to reduce motion transfer. However, the latex comfort layer is also buoyant and facilitates movement, so some motion transfer is still possible.
To test the motion isolation of the Eco Terra Hybrid Latex mattress, we performed our standard test. We placed a glass half full of water on top of the mattress and dropped a 20-pound ball on the other side. The water in the glass visibly moved, which indicates that there was some motion transfer.
We also had our partner lie on one side of the mattress while we rolled around on the other side. Our partner reported that they did feel some movement on their side, but it wouldn't wake them up.
Overall, the Eco Terra Hybrid Latex mattress is not the best choice for people who value motion isolation. However, the medium model may absorb motion a little better than the firm model. We gave the mattress 3.5/5 for motion isolation.
The Eco Terra Hybrid Latex mattress has good edge support thanks to the 16-gauge coils around the perimeter of the support base. These coils help to keep sleepers supported near the edge of the bed, even when they are sitting or lying on the edge.
To test the edge support of the Eco Terra Hybrid Latex mattress, we conducted a simple test. We applied firm pressure to the edges of the mattress with our hands. We were able to push onto the mattress, but we felt a lot of counterpressure. This indicates that the mattress is well-supported around the edges.
We also sat on the edges of the mattress to assess the edge support. We sank in slightly on the firm mattress, but not enough to feel like we would fall off. We could still feel the support of the coils pretty well. We also felt supported when getting in and out of bed.
Overall, we gave the Eco Terra Hybrid Latex mattress a 4.8/5 for its edge support.
The Eco Terra Hybrid Latex mattress has excellent noise isolation thanks to its latex layers and pocketed coils. The latex layers are naturally quiet, and the pocketed coils help prevent noise from traveling through the mattress.
We conducted a noise isolation test on the Eco Terra Hybrid Latex mattress by dropping a 20-pound ball onto it. We listened for any squeaks or noises through our sensitive microphones, but we heard nothing. The only sound we heard was the thud of the ball hitting the mattress.
We gave the Eco Terra Hybrid Latex mattress 5/5 in our noise test.
The ideal mattress for sex should be comfortable, supportive, and quiet. The Eco Terra Hybrid Latex mattress checks all of these boxes.
Couples often prefer hybrid mattresses because they offer comfort and support. The coils in the support core facilitate movement and make it easy to change positions. The Eco Terra also has a buoyant latex comfort layer that provides good pressure relief and allows couples to move freely. Additionally, the Eco Terra has supportive edges that allow couples to use the entire surface area of the mattress.
We gave the Eco Terra Hybrid Latex mattress a 4.7/5 rating for sex performance.
The Eco Terra Hybrid Latex mattress offers good pressure relief thanks to its thick comfort layer of latex and pocketed coils. The latex conforms to the shape of the body and cushions pressure points, while the coils provide support and help keep the spine aligned.
To assess the pressure relief of the Eco Terra Hybrid Latex mattress, we conducted a pressure map test. We had our reviewer, who is of average weight, lie on the mattress for 20 minutes while we measured the pressure at different body pressure points. The bluer the map, the better the pressure relief.
The pressure map shows that the mattress does an excellent job of relieving pressure, especially for back and stomach sleepers. The shoulders and hips are the only areas that showed some green, which indicates that they may not be as well supported as other areas. However, this does not mean that the mattress is uncomfortable for side sleepers. It simply means that strict side sleepers may prefer a softer mattress, such as the medium model of this mattress.
The Eco Terra Hybrid Latex mattress is not as conforming as a memory foam mattress, so sleepers will not sink deeply into the mattress or feel “hugged” by the comfort layer. However, the mattress still offers good pressure relief and is a good choice for people who suffer from pain in the hips, shoulders, or lower back. We gave it a 4.8/5 for pressure relief.
