Origin Hybrid Pro Mattress Review

Origin Hybrid Pro Mattress Review

Monica Tindall

Do you think your sleep needs change as you age? Mine definitely have. I used to be able to sleep anywhere. Now, I’m lucky to get a solid four hours of undisturbed sleep.

I follow all the recommendations for sound rest, such as having a consistent bedtime, morning exercise, no coffee after noon, eating a few hours before bedtime, no screens in bed, a cool dark room, aromatherapy, air filter… Yet, still, rarely do I sleep through the night. Following the wise words of John Wildsmith, “You are either in your bed or in your shoes, so it pays to invest in both,” I jumped at the opportunity to try the Malaysian-made Origin Hybrid Pro Mattress. *If you want to skip to the good part, they’re currently on sale! Our king-size order is usually priced at RM7000 but is currently on sale for RM4199. You can also check out my Wes Anderson-inspired reel here 😉

As is the case for many people these days, our lives are full. Time to physically go shopping seems a luxury we never have. Even with an online order, we’re seldom at home to receive something that can’t be left at our condo’s delivery table. However, Origin solves both of these problems. Online ordering is a breeze, with free delivery and a 120-night trial period or your money back guarantee. Additionally, the unique “mattress in a box” concept, means, although the package is large, it can be left in our lobby with other deliveries, and between the two of us, we able to carry to our apartment at our convenience. Furthermore, if we decide to keep it after the four-month trial period, there’s a 15 year warranty! Low risk, convenient and made-in-Malaysia, it’s a win all around.

Even with the convenience and good price, and the returns of sound sleep and better health quickly paying off the initial outlay, we still had some questions that needed answering before committing to such an expense. We chatted with the team behind Origin Malaysia and got some responses to our wonderings.

How much of an impact can a mattress have on our sleep (and, potentially, overall health)?

The impact of a mattress on our sleep quality cannot be overstated. A poor mattress can lead to discomfort, restless nights, and inadequate support, resulting in interrupted sleep and waking up feeling fatigued. In contrast, a high-quality mattress, such as the Origin Hybrid Pro, can provide the necessary support, promote proper spinal alignment, and minimise pressure points. This improves sleep efficiency, allowing for more restorative sleep cycles and enhancing overall health.

A mattress that offers optimal comfort and support can alleviate various sleep-related issues, including chronic pain, tossing and turning, and even snoring. By promoting a comfortable sleep environment, the right mattress can enhance sleep quality, leading to improved mood, memory, concentration, and immune function.

What type of sleeper suits a particular type of mattress?

Different types of mattresses cater to specific sleep preferences. Here are some common mattress types and the types of sleepers they are best suited for:

Memory Foam: Memory foam mattresses conform closely to the body, relieving pressure points and providing excellent motion isolation. These are ideal for sleepers who prefer a contouring feel and require pressure relief, such as side sleepers.

Latex: Latex mattresses offer responsive support and durability. They are suitable for sleepers who desire a more buoyant and breathable surface, as well as those who prefer a natural and hypoallergenic material.

Hybrid: Hybrid mattresses, like the Origin Hybrid Pro, combine the best features of different mattress types. They typically have a pocketed coil base for support, topped with foam or latex comfort layers. Hybrid mattresses are suitable for a wide range of sleepers, including those who prefer a balanced feel, good support, and a moderate level of contouring.

Innerspring: Innerspring mattresses feature a network of coils for support and often have a thin comfort layer. They are ideal for sleepers who prefer a firmer, bouncy surface and enhanced breathability.

Gel-Infused Foam: Gel-infused foam mattresses incorporate cooling gel beads to regulate temperature and provide a cooler sleeping surface. These mattresses are beneficial for hot sleepers who experience discomfort from excessive heat retention.

What are your tips for finding the right mattress? Are there specific features or characteristics to look out for?

Finding the right mattress involves considering several factors:

Comfort and Support: Look for a mattress that offers a balance of comfort and support, ensuring your spine is properly aligned while providing pressure relief.

Sleep Position: Consider your primary sleep position. Side sleepers usually benefit from a softer mattress that cushions the shoulders and hips, while back and stomach sleepers often require a firmer surface for proper spinal alignment.

Motion Isolation: If you sleep with a partner or are easily disturbed by motion, prioritize mattresses with excellent motion isolation, such as memory foam or hybrid models with pocketed coils that minimize motion transfer.

Durability: Look for a mattress with high-quality materials and construction to ensure its longevity. Mattresses with robust edge support tend to have a longer lifespan.

Temperature Regulation: Consider mattresses with cooling features like gel-infused foam or breathable materials if you tend to sleep hot.

Trial Period and Warranty: Opt for mattresses that offer a generous trial period, allowing you to test the mattress in the comfort of your own home. Additionally, check for warranties that protect against manufacturing defects.

Customer Reviews: Read customer reviews and testimonials to gain insights into the experiences of others who have used the mattress you are considering.

How often should you replace your mattress? Does it vary depending on the type of mattress?

The lifespan of a mattress differs based on several factors such as the quality of materials, usage, and care. On average, mattresses are expected to last between 7 to 10 years. However, this timeline can change depending on the type of mattress.

Memory foam and latex mattresses tend to have a longer lifespan, often lasting up to 10 years or more. Innerspring mattresses may require more frequent replacement, as their coil support systems may wear out over time. Hybrid mattresses typically fall within the average lifespan range.

It’s important to pay attention to signs of wear and tear, such as sagging, loss of support, or discomfort. If you notice significant changes in your sleep quality or physical comfort, it may be time to consider replacing your mattress.

How else can people ensure a good night’s sleep, such as bedding accessories (pillows, blankets, etc.)?

While a high-quality mattress like the Origin Hybrid Pro plays a crucial role in achieving a good night’s sleep, other bedding accessories can further enhance your sleep experience. Here are some additional tips for a restful night:

Pillows: Choose a pillow that aligns with your sleep position and provides adequate support for your head and neck. Side sleepers may benefit from a thicker pillow to maintain proper spinal alignment, while back and stomach sleepers might prefer flatter pillows.

Bedding: Opt for breathable and moisture-wicking sheets and bedding materials to regulate temperature and prevent overheating. Natural fibres like cotton or bamboo are excellent choices for promoting airflow and comfort.

Room Environment: Create a sleep-friendly environment by keeping your bedroom cool, dark, and quiet. Consider using blackout curtains, earplugs, or white noise machines to minimize external disruptions.

Sleep Routine: Establish a consistent schedule by going to bed and waking up at the same time every day, including weekends. A regular sleep routine helps regulate your body’s internal clock and promotes better sleep quality.

Relaxation Techniques: Engage in relaxing activities before bed, such as reading, listening to calming music, or practicing meditation. These activities can help signal your body to unwind and prepare for sleep.

Limit Stimulants: Avoid consuming stimulants like caffeine, nicotine, and electronic devices close to bedtime, as they can impede your ability to fall asleep and stay asleep.

By incorporating these practices and choosing bedding accessories that align with your sleep preferences, you can enhance the comfort and tranquillity of your sleep environment, further improving your overall sleep quality.

Origin Hybrid Pro Mattress Put to the Test

Questions answered, the stress-free purchasing and deliveryoptions, as well as the safety net of a 120-day trial period, made the decision to try the Origin Hybrid Pro Mattress a straightforward one.

The “mattress in a box” concept meant it was not difficult for just the two of us to collect it from our lobby and unpack. We simply, opened the box, lay the mattress beside the bed base, cut the vacuum-sealed plastic and it unfolded on its own. Two sets of handles on each side made it easy to lift onto the bed base and manoeuvre it into position.

We’ve slept on the Origin Hybrid Pro Mattress for a month now and found that the hybrid construction means we get the best of both worlds – the support of pocketed coils with the pressure-relieving properties of high-density foam and natural latex. As I sleep on my side and hubby on his back, having both support and comfort in the one product was key.

Another thing that I’m finding more of a problem as I age, is waking up in a sweat. The Origin Hybrid Pro Mattress incorporates cooling gel-infused memory foam and breathable materials to regulate temperature and enhance airflow. This has stopped my middle of the night, overheated awakenings to zero!

Lastly, and as mentioned earlier, hubby and I are very different sleepers. I’m early to bed and early to rise, while he’s the opposite. I’m a quiet sleeper but tend to toss and turn, but he’s a snoring log. The individually wrapped pocketed coils in the Origin Hybrid Pro mattress effectively isolate motion. This has meant he’s not disturbed by my night wiggles and I’m not disrupted with his later arrival to bed. Seems all is sorted. Now all that’s left to remedy is his snore…
