I was recently given a Luft mattress for review. This mattress is a high-quality hybrid mattress that comes in multiple firmness options.  A queen size retails for $1,099 and for that price you get great craftsmanship beyond what you would typically get from an online brand. The Luft mattress was made by mattress makers, not mattress marketers. This means they know mattresses and how to make a mattress that feels great, looks great and will hold up over time.

Overview of the Luft mattress

The Luft mattress can be purchased exclusively through their website. It comes in 6 different firmness options going from softest to firmest:

Plush Multi Sleeper
Luxury Firm Multi Sleeper
Firm Sleeper

Here’s a video of me on the Plush Multi Sleeper

Your mattress will arrive in a box. This is a heavy mattress though so may take two people to get into your room. This is what it looks like once you get it out of the box.

This mattress can be slept on right after opening. It springs to life and I didn’t notice much off-gassing with it either.

Construction of the Luft Mattress

I was lucky enough to tour the factory where the Luft is made. Here’s a picture of the inside of the Luft mattress

Here are the construction specifications of each model according to their website:

Plush Multi Sleeper

  • Best in class for affordable luxury
  • Contouring 360 degree breathable stretch fabric designed for ease of movement
  • Multiple layers of gel-infused cooling foam to help you naturally relax throughout the night
  • 2 inches of temperature-regulating, graphene infused premium memory foam to ease pressure points on the hips and shoulders
  • 1 inch of Serene® foam, known for air support, providing individual spinal alignment and pressure relief
  • 968 individually-wrapped Bolsa coils in five zones providing precision support including your lumbar

Luxury Firm Multi Sleeper

  • Strategically engineered to adapt to an array of sleep preferences
  • Contouring 360 degree breathable stretch fabric designed for ease of movement
  • Multiple layers of gel-infused cooling foam help you naturally relax throughout the night
  • 1 inch of temperature-regulating, graphene infused premium memory foam to ease pressure points on the hips and shoulders
  • 2 inches of HD adaptive foam designed to provide supportive contouring and pressure relief
  • 1074 individually-wrapped Quantum coils in seven zones providing precision support including your lumbar

Firm Sleeper

  • Our answer for anyone wanting a firm bed that isn’t “too hard”
  • Contouring 360 degree breathable stretch fabric designed for ease of movement
  • Multiple layers of body adaptive foam designed to keep you cool and comfortable throughout the night
  • 2 inches of temperature-regulating, graphene infused premium memory foam to ease pressure points from head to toe
  • 1074 individually-wrapped Quantum coils in seven zones for precision support of your body including the lumba

My Luft Mattress Findings

Below is a photo of my 14 lb. bowling ball on the Soft Side Sleeper Luft mattress. It has a considerable amount of sink but when you put even more weight on it, you will get even more sink.

The Luft mattress will have some bounce to it. Although since there are more foam layers above it than a traditional spring mattress your partner will not feel your movements as much. Check out the video below to get an idea of how this handles motion transfer and how much bounce you can expect.

The Luft also handles heat fairly well. It’s certainly more breathable than an all foam mattress.

 

My Luft Recommendation

The Luft mattress is an exceptional value given its construction and the fact that it is made in the USA. The feel should appeal to most people although if you know you want a very firm or very soft mattress, you may want to look elsewhere. The coil system is designed so that you get superior edge support, something that most mattress in a box companies have a hard time achieving. The coils along the perimeter of the mattress are actually firmer than the inside to keep you in bed and prevent you from feeling like you will roll off.

Luft incorporates all the newest foams including a cooling foam and graphite infused foam for superior comfort. They aren’t a typical 3 layer mattress company. They have 5 layers to make a great quality mattress and a 100-day trial to boot. If you are not happy with the mattress within this time frame they will take it. Free shipping to you and free returns so you aren’t out a dime.

  1. We just recently purchased a Luft Hybrid mattress, and all I can say is WOW. It is extremely comfortable, we fall asleep almost instantly. I used to have problems with insomnia, but no more! Also, I have always felt like I was rolling downhill towards my husband’s side of the bed, as he weighs 2 1/2 times as much as me. Now I can lie right next to him and be completely level! We highly recommend this mattress!

  2. I’ve heard that this is very comparable to the Nest Alexander Signature Hybrid. What would be the biggest difference between the Nest’s Medium and the Luft’s Medium besides price?

  3. I noticed the coils on the Helix are closer to the top than the Luft. Between the two which would you recommend for side sleepers at 190 lbs and 125 lbs?

  4. I’ve spent a week on the LUFT Hybrid mattress and unfortunately will be returning it. I’ve read here and on other sites, that felt that mattress firmness was in the 6 range… I then went to mattress stores and asked them to show me a hybrid mattress that was firm. The LUFT hybrid mattress is rock solid firm, much firmer than any store I went to. I’m 250lbs and I feel no pressure relief. I wake up in shoulder pain every morning, I’m a side sleeper. I really wanted this mattress to be the one. I researched the crap out of this. I do believe the construction of the mattress is top of the line, it’s very well made. But the amount of firmness is just way to firm for me. I’d put the firmness way above a 7. It’s not close to a medium firm at all.

  5. Im a side sleeper… i ordered the nolah. Great company and service but the bed was too soft. I like the cradling but it was too much and caused lower back pain. I realize the luft is firmrer, but does it still sink in a little? Is it at all soft on top?

      Hi Jodi,

      I’m a actually a Luft owner and have been considering sending this one back for another mattress, potentially even the Nolah? Though I think I need to avoid foam topped mattresses since I sleep so hot (I am getting a little hot with the Luft as well which is surprising). I’m also a side sleeper and the Luft is a nice mattress, and yes, it does have softness on top (almost a pillow-top like feeling) that cradles you just enough but not really sinking in. It more hugs your heavier parts and allows your lighter parts to float a bit more. So it is a really nice mix. My only complaint so far (aside from sleeping hotter than expected) is that I feel like beyond the comfort levels, I’m not quite getting the support from the coils which is leading to back pain. Overall the Luft is a nice mattress. Hopefully I get around to writing a full review. It’s not working for me just yet (though it’s only been a few short weeks), maybe I come around to it but my experience is personal (my wife likes it so far but does complain about sleeping a bit hot too). I’m sure this mattress is great for a whole lot of people I just may not be one of them. Hope this helps. Let me know of any questions.

  6. I am in the market for another mattress. I am sending back my Nectar mattress. I don’t like the “stuck in the mud” feeling. It is too much work to turn from side to side. I sleep on my side and back. I am torn between the Luft and the Wink Beds mattresses. I want something that is firm, but that will accommodate side sleeping. I’m also looking for a thick mattress, as I will be eliminating my box springs for a Zinus metal slat support. Would love to have your opinions.

  7. I’ve been researching mattresses for a loooong time. Every time I think I have a winner, there’s a new or different one to consider. I am a side sleeper with hip and shoulder issues. I see a lot of side sleepers who want support but also want a “firm” mattress. When they try a new mattress, they’re disappointed because it’s TOO firm. The Luft Plush looks like a great option for a side sleeper like me.

  8. This looks like a big, healthy mattress to sleep on. I like the foam with the coils. I sleep on my sides and I like that there is breathability and some coolness. Need that for sure.

    I love that it’s temperature regulating! Looks like an amazing mattress!

  11. This sounds like a mattress that hubby and I could benefit using. We have been searching for some time for the perfect mattress.

  12. We are looking for a new mattress concerns are firmness and durability. Our last bed was way to hard and we don’t want to make that mistake again!

  13. I would love to try the firm mattress. I need hip and shoulder support to help keep the spine straight – an issue to side sleepers. I love the cooling effect as I tend to sleep warm. Definitely worth a try. Can you flip this mattress?

  14. Love reading the comments here from people that have used this. Looks incredible. We are both side sleepers and could use a little bit more pressure relief than we are getting on our Tuft & Needle.

  15. This is the line that intrigues me: Our answer for anyone wanting a firm bed that isn’t “too hard” This could have been written by me.

  16. Like the increased support around the mattress perimeter. Most people sit on side of bed to dress and the increased perimeter edge support is nice feature

    This sounds like a good mattress. I have a few chronic illnesses that cause excruciating pain. I’m also a side sleeper. The mattress I have now I have to lay directly on the edge because the inner section dips. I just hate waking up after sleeping on this mattress. I’m on disability so I can’t afford to buy a new mattress, which really stinks. I get all of the hand me down mattresses that are beyond at the end of their life. I’d love to try a Luft mattress.

  19. Super helpful and insightful review of the Luft Mattress! My wife and I have been shopping around for a new mattress that’s both somewhat firm and great for side-sleepers. The Luft is now at the top of our list, thanks to your review.

    We are looking for a new mattress to replace our new mattress and this one may fit the bill. Our new one is so firm that after 3 nights of no sleep I spent the night on the couch so I could get some Zzzs. I would have drug my 15 year old one back in the house the first night if we hadn’t promptly taken it to the dump.

  21. I SO need this mattress n my life. I average about 5 hours sleep a night if I’m lucky. Gawd I desperately need some better sleep.

  36. This sounds like the perfect mattress for us since hubby likes firmer and I like a softer mattress. I also like that it’s cooler than a regular mattress. Hoping to get one of these soon.

    These reviews were very helpful. I am super interested in a queen.

  45. After trying a variety of bed-in-a-box mattresses, I much prefer the hybrid approach – the firmness and edge support of coils and the plushness of foam on top. This seems like a mattress that has those qualities and the different firmness levels – which not all manufacturers have – allows me to get what’s best for me.

  46. Super excited to try out this mattress! We’re in the market for a new one since our old one is 8+ yrs old and my sleeping needs have changed after 2 pregnancies! Looking for a hybrid medium to plush mattress good for side sleepers (me) and back sleepers (husband). This is seeming to fit the bill… and I’ve never heard of this brand before looking into Sleep Sherpa! Hoping to visit from St. Cloud later this week after the last snow storm of this crazy month is over on Tuesday!

  47. I love the fact that the
    Plush Multi Sleeper multiple layers of gel-infused cooling foam to helps a person to naturally relax.

  48. I’m looking for a mattress for my daughter and she had to have a futon but they just aren’t very comfortable. I’m wondering if these would work just to use when she sleeps and set behind if she wanted?

    Thank you so much for such a good review. I love a mattress that has been rated high for motion transfer. I also love that you have 6 different choices for firmness.

  56. Ever since my spinal cord injury a few years ago. I haven’t been able to get a good nights sleep. I wake up throughout the night in so much pain. I need to change positions in order to relieve the pain. Which then wakes my husband. This happens a few times a night. This Luft Mattress sounds like its what my husband, my body and I need. So we can get a good nights sleep. And so I don’t have to be in pain.
