Sealy Posturepedic Hybrid Mattresses provide a unique set of features that you won't find in any other line-up out there.

What this means for you is that these hybrid mattresses will provide you with the best night of sleep you have experienced in a very long time.

Today we are looking at two very popular Posturepedic Hybrid mattresses the Sealy Posturepedic Hybrid Elite Kelburn Cushion Firm Mattress, and the Sealy Posturepedic Hybrid Premier Cobalt Firm Mattress. You will find these mattresses have more in common than not. First, let's take a look at each mattress individually, then we will show you a side by side comparison of the specs so you can see just how much they have in common.

About the Sealy Posturepedic Hybrid Elite Kelburn Cushion Firm Mattress

The Hybrid Elite Kelburn cushion firm mattress is one of the top rated mattresses on consumer reports for its comfortable and supportive feel and incredible nights sleep. This 12.5" tall mattress provides an ideal sleeping surface for side sleepers, back sleepers, and stomach sleepers thanks to its body contouring design. Both the innerspring system and gel memory foam top layers conform to your body as you lay down to provide you with support exactly where you need it. The gel memory foam on top is infused with OUTLAST to create the OptiCool gel that is adept at helping you regulate your body temperature for optimal sleep.

About the Sealy Posturepedic Hybrid Premier Cobalt Firm Mattress

Sealy Hybrid Cobalt Firm mattress

The Hybrid Premier Cobalt firm mattress is by far the most popular mattress in the Premier line up of Sealy's Hybrid mattresses due largely to the price and to the fact that the comfort it offers can appeal to side, back and stomach sleepers alike. This broad comfort appeal is thanks to the combination of OptiCool gel memory foam and individually encased innerspring coils. Both of these features provide body contouring comfort and support that helps you sleep more comfortably while helping you optimize your body temperature for truly relaxing sleep.

Side By Side Comparison - Why Pay More for the Same Thing?


See the Differences?

Do you see the differences in these mattresses? With the exception of the different quilt design, neither do we. These mattresses have the same height, the same thickness of each of the layers (which are made of the same material). They have the same innerspring coil system with the exact same density and have the same 3" foam encasement around the edge of the mattress to provide edge support. There are really only two significant differences. The price and the listed "Comfort Level" which we will talk about in a moment. When comparing the price, you can get the Hybrid Cobalt mattress for about $200 less on average (We even throw in a Free mattress protector with coupon code "FREELP")

When you consider the comfort level, the Hybrid Cobalt is listed as a firm mattress, and the Kelburn is listed as a "cushion firm". After trying out the Hybrid Cobalt mattress I can tell you that this mattress is more of a medium firm. It does feel very supportive but the gel memory foam on top softens the overall comfort to the point that it can easily be called a cushion firm mattress.

Why are the Premier Hybrid Cobalt and Elite Hybrid Kelburn so Similar?

Some companies pay extra to have a mattress name exclusive to their stores so you can't get it anywhere else. This is where the Hybrid Kelburn came from. Other than the name, price and design on the quilt, these are essentially the same mattress.


Sealy's Posturepedic Hybrid mattresses are taking over as some of the most comfortable mattresses you will encounter today without putting down $5,000+. So if you are in the market for a new mattress and the Hybrid Elite Kelburn has caught your eye, know that the Hybrid Premier Cobalt mattress is essentially the same mattress for a much better price.
