Consider Serta Idirections X1 Hybrid Firm Review if

  • You don't mind going through the hassle of finding a discontinued mattress in a brick and mortar store.
  • There are no other reasons you should go for the Serta Idirections mattress, as it's now replaced by Serta's new iComfort Mattress.

Skip Serta Idirections X1 Hybrid Firm Review if

  • If you prefer a mattress with the same feel as the Serta Idirections X1 Hybrid Mattress, but that is much improved in a lot of aspects, then you should definitely consider Serta's new Serta iComfort Mattress

Firmness, Feel & Comfort of the Serta Idirections X1 Hybrid Firm Review

On a scale of 1 to 10, the Serta Idirections X1 Hybrid Firm rates roughly a 7-8. This makes the Serta Idirections X1 Hybrid mattress ideal for people that primarily sleep on their back & stomach).

This is because that the key sensitive pressure areas in your body, such as your hips, shoulders, and neck, are adequately supported by the gel memory foam comfort layer.

If you're a side sleeper, we do not advise the Serta Idirections X1 Hybrid Firm. A softer mattress is often significantly more comfortable for side sleepers (closer to a 3-5 on a 1-10 firmness scale). However the new Serta Icomfort Mattress solves this by introducing an improved foam material.

Due to its hard comfort level, we also do not advise the Serta Idirections X1 Hybrid Firm if you are on the lighter side. Most likely, you won't obtain the support you require and will continue to float on top of the mattress.

However, if you would love to have the benefits of a Hybrid Gel mattress, yet still have a comfortable sleep, definitely check out the Serta Icomfort Mattress, which amazed us by the balance of comfort for all types of sleeping positions, while we found it to be very comfortable for light and heavy people in our review team at Sleepiverse.

Construction & Design of the Serta Idirections X1 Hybrid Firm Review

The Serta Idirections X1 Hybrid Firm mattress provides good comfort and support for back and stomach sleepers especially due to the hybrid innerspring coil base and the gel memory foam soft top.

A tight-top mattress provides a wide sleep surface and adequate weight support (with 'okay' edge support).

Even if this is an older, possibly discontinued model, the innerspring and gel top mattresses are still relatively common in 2022, but there are now much improved and extremely comfortable predecessors such as the Serta iComfort Mattress.

Support & Motion Isolation of the Serta Idirections X1 Hybrid Firm Review

Serta Idirections X1 Hybrid Firm provides fair support and motion isolation.

Motion transmission across the mattress is effectively eliminated by the top gel memory foam paired with the bottom innerspring coils.

The Serta Idirections X1 Hybrid Firm is probably constructed to last 3-5+ years before it needs to be replaced. One of the main reasons it's challenging to suggest this mattress is because of this. However, on the bright side, the new Serta iComfort Mattress solves this issue.

Availability of the Serta Idirections X1 Hybrid Firm Review

The Serta Idirections X1 Hybrid Firm Mattress is discontinued now, so you'll have a hard time finding it in 2022. However, this is good news, because now Serta offers the new iComfort mattress which is miles above the old Serta Idirections X1 mattress!

Final Thoughts on the Serta Idirections X1 Hybrid Firm Review

If you want a quality mattress that is:

  • Built to last
  • Easy to find online
  • Has a good price-to-performance ratio
  • Has good warranty and trial

Then we wouldn't recommend the Serta Idirections X1 Hybrid Firm mattress at all because it's discontinued by Serta.

However Serta discontinued the Idirections X1 Hybrid mattress because it's now replaced by the top-notch iComfort Mattress mattress, which is targeted to the same audience of people who love the comfort of hybrid innerspring and gel mattresses, but solves the issues that the Idirections mattress had!
