Unboxing the Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid Mattress
The Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid mattress arrived to us compressed in a box that was slightly heavy. However, it has two handles that allow two people to easily carry it to the desired room, so make sure to have someone to help you while unboxing this mattress. To unbox it, you simply take it out of the box, place it on your bed, carefully cut the plastic wrap, and leave it to fully expand.
When we unboxed the Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid mattress, we noticed that it took a couple of hours to fully expand into its full 15-inch height. We also noticed that it expanded all the way to its very edges. Such good edge expansion makes your bed look better and indicates that it has good edge support.
Most bed-in-a-box mattresses release an overpowering odor once they are unboxed, known as chemical off-gassing. Yet, the Nolah Evolution 15 only produced a faint new-product smell that disappeared with a strong airflow. This shows that it is a safe bed that won’t emit any harsh chemicals and toxins into your bedroom.
Overall, we found the unboxing experience of the Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid to be smooth and hassle-free which is definitely a plus for Nolah.
Firmness, Feel and Comfort For the Nolah
The Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid Mattress Firmness
The firmness of any mattress depends on your weight and preferred sleeping position, making it a subjective matter that differs from one individual to another. However, it is essential to opt for a mattress that has a firmness level that meets your own specific needs. A mattress that is too firm or too soft may negatively impact your sleep health and overall well-being.
The Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid comes in 3 firmness levels: Plush, Luxury-Firm, and Firm. According to our firmness scale, the Plush model achieved 5/10, the Luxury-Firm achieved a 6/10, and the Firm model achieved a 7/10.
Such variation in the firmness level allows the Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid mattress to suit the specific needs of a wide range of sleepers and give them a personalized sleeping experience. While the three firmness levels would work fine for most sleepers, each model targets a specific category of sleepers to give them the most comfort and pressure relief possible.
The Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid Mattress Feel
When we slept on the Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid mattress for the first time, we felt its fluffy cover’s softness and refreshing feel. We noticed that it feels super comfortable, as it contours the body’s curves, which gives optimal pressure relief. The mattress also felt supportive due to its sturdy individually pocketed coils support core. Therefore, we felt that we were sleeping on the mattress rather than sinking too much into it.
Therefore, we can confidently say that the Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid mattress has one of the most comfortable, luxurious, and welcoming sleeping surfaces we have encountered.
The Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid Mattress Comfort
Similar to firmness, the amount of comfort you get from a mattress highly depends on your body weight, preferred sleeping position, and the kind of materials you like. Being a hybrid bed that has multiple firmness options to choose from, the Nolah Evolution 15 should be comfortable for most sleepers of all shapes and sizes.
For back sleepers, the Firm model should be very comfortable and supportive. It would evenly distribute your weight on the mattress surface, and keep you in a perfect alignment. Side sleepers would feel comfortable sleeping on the Plush model of this bed. It would provide them with the right amount of sinkage and cradle their pressure points. As for stomach sleepers, those folks would enjoy sleeping on the Luxury-Firm model, as it would provide them with the needed support, without allowing for excessive sinkage.
It is also noteworthy that the Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid bed would be comfortable for sleepers who weigh more than 250 lbs. It would provide them with the needed support, thanks to its individually pocketed coils support core.

Constructions, Materials, and Design
Materials and Design
The Nolah Evolution 15 is a 15” hybrid mattress, meaning that it features a combination of foam and coil layers. Its cover is made with organic cotton that gives the bed softness as well as breathability. It has a comfort layer of plush foam that allows you to sleep comfortably on it and a support core of individually encased layers that make it durable and supportive. Overall, the Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid is a sleek and elegant bed that features Nolah’s high-quality materials.
Here is what is inside the Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid mattress:
- Cover - The Nolah Evolution 15’s top cover is made with organic cotton. It's thicker and softer than the polyester covers you'll find on other mattresses, so it guarantees you a plush sleeping experience.
- Comfort layer - The Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid includes two comfort layers: one consisting of two inches of cooling ArcticTex™ fibers that are breathable and engineered to keep sleepers comfortable at night. The second comfort layer is comprised of AirFoamICE™, a graphite-infused variant of Nolah AirFoam™. It has a stronger cooling effect, which is ideal for hot sleepers. It enhances the absorption of body heat while also offering support and pressure relief.
- Transition Layer - A two-inch layer of high-resilience, pressure-relieving foam sits beneath the AirFoamICE™ layer. This layer is more resistant to wear than latex. It's the layer between the comfort layer and the mattress coils that's supportive and responsive.
- Coils - The 8” support core of the Evolution 15 Hybrid mattress consists of HDMax™ Eco Support Coils. These coils add to the Evolution's breathability and give additional pressure relief. The coils are encased in Edge-Tech™ support foam, so the sides of the mattresses are just as strong as the middle. The bouncy quality of the mattress should allow ease of mobility for combination sleepers.
- Foundation Layer - The foundation layer helps sustain the rest of the mattress. Nolah includes an inch of high-density core-support foam to make the mattress more stable and durable.
Performance of the Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid Mattress
If you sleep hot or simply don’t like the feeling of a warm mattress while sleeping, then good cooling performance is essential for you, while looking for a new mattress.
We did our standard tests to assess the cooling performance of the Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid mattress. The first test consists of taking 20-minute naps on each side of the mattress. When we did this test, we found that the mattress maintained a cool temperature, regardless of the sleeping position.
The second test involves sleeping on the mattress for a full night in all sleeping positions. The result of this test was not a surprise, as the mattress slept cool all night.
Such a great cooling performance didn’t come as a surprise to us, as the Evolution 15 Hybrid is designed to be a cooling and breathable bed. Thanks to its coils support core and cooling comfort layer, the mattress sleeps cool all night, which makes it perfect for those who sleep hot.
We rated the Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid mattress’ cooling performance a solid 5/5.
Mattresses that have good responsiveness performance allow sleepers to move freely and smoothly on the bed surface. Therefore, looking for a bouncy mattress with good responsiveness performance is super important.
We tested the responsiveness of the Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid mattress by doing our standard responsiveness test. Our test consists of dropping a 20 lbs ball onto the mattress and then removing it. This test helps us evaluate how fast the mattress recovers to its original shape after being subjected to pressure. When we did this test, we found that the mattress took 9 seconds to regain its initial form.
This shows that Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid is a highly responsive bed. Due to its responsive comfort layer and individually encased coils support core, the mattress has a bouncy feel to it. This makes it a great choice for combination sleepers, as they switch sleeping positions all night, without feeling stuck.
We rated the Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid mattress’ responsiveness a 5/5.
Motion isolation is essential, especially if you are a light sleeper who doesn’t want to be disturbed by your partner’s tossing and turning on the bed all day. To evaluate the Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid mattress’ ability to isolate motion, we ran a couple of our tests.
In the first test, we placed a glass full of water on one side of the bed and dropped a heavy ball on the other side. This test allows us to observe the motion transferred to the glass of water. When we conducted this test, we discovered that the ball drop slightly affected the water inside the glass.
Another test that we did was that we tried rolling on one side of the bed and had our partner report the motion felt on the other side of the bed. It was no surprise that this test showed the same result, as very little motion was felt on the other side of the bed.
Being a hybrid bed, the Nolah Evolution 15 is expected to transfer some motion from one side of the bed to the other. Yet, the results of our tests showed that it does a great job at isolating motion when compared to other hybrid mattresses.
We rated the Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid motion isolation performance a solid 4.5/5.
Strong edge support is an important attribute to look for in a new mattress. A strong edge support would allow you to use up the entire sleep surface of the mattress and sleep near the edges, without feeling that you are going to roll out of bed. Mattresses with strong edge support also tend to last long, as you won’t be forced to sleep only towards the center of your bed, which prevents premature sagging. We performed our standard edge support tests to evaluate the Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid mattress’ edge support performance.
The first test we did consisted of applying pressure to the edges of the mattress and observing how much it sank. This test indicates if the mattress has strong edges that make you feel supported while sleeping. When we did this test, we found that the edges of the Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid mattress barely sank.
The second test we did involved sitting on the mattress’ edges and seeing how well it held our body weight. The results of the test also indicated that the edges of the mattress do an excellent job of holding body weight.
The Nolah Evolution 15 has Edge-Tech™ support foam encased coils neat to its edges. This gives it strong edges that would allow you to use up the entire sleep surface of the mattress, without feeling that you are going to fall.
We rated the edge support of the Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid mattress a 4.5/5.
We did our standard noise test to see if the Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid mattress makes any noises or squeaks. Our test consists of dropping a heavy ball onto the surface of the mattress and using highly sensitive mics to see if it makes any noises or squeaks.
Our tests showed that the Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid mattress is within the “whisper quiet” mattresses. It causes very little noise due to having coils in its construction, which makes it an ideal choice for light sleepers who are easily disturbed by noise.
We rated the Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid mattress noise performance a 4.8/5.
A mattress that is good for sex needs to have a number of elements, such as bounce, edge support, and great cooling performance. According to our performance test results so far, the Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid mattress should be a great choice for sex.
Thanks to having coils in its construction, it is a responsive, bouncy mattress that allows for easy movement on its surface. Its coils support core also makes its edges supportive, so you shouldn’t worry about rolling out of bed. Finally, its cooling and breathable materials allow it to stay cool and comfortable all night.
We rated the Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid mattress’ sex performance a solid 5/5.
When we sleep in our preferred sleeping position, we usually feel pressure buildup in different body areas, which are known as pressure points. It is highly advisable to opt for a mattress that relieves your pressure points, so you can enjoy a comfortable and healthy sleep.
We tested the Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid mattress’ pressure relief performance by sleeping on each side and examining where pressure tends to build up. The pressure map below illustrates the results.
Back sleepers - Back sleepers should feel super comfortable sleeping on the Firm Model of this bed. It well supports them and allows for a healthy sleep posture. It also fills in their lumbar area, which relieves the pressure on their back.
Stomach Sleepers - The Luxury-Firm model of this bed would guarantee stomach sleepers a comfortable, pain-free sleep. It would give them the needed support and doesn’t allow their hips to sink too much, which eases pressure on their lower back.
Side Sleepers - Side sleepers should feel extremely comfortable sleeping on the Plush Model. It’s soft enough to cushion their shoulders and hips, which gives them healthy, pain-free sleep.
We rated the Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid mattress’ pressure relief performance a 4.7/5.
