OTTY Pure Hybrid Bamboo & Charcoal Mattress - 2021 Review

A hybrid mattress is always a good choice if you’re looking for the perfect balance of comfort and support, and OTTY Pure Hybrid Bamboo & Charcoal mattress seems to be just that. However, it offers more than just that. Well, let’s find out together what it offers.

What do we use this mattress for?

Aside from the obvious use of sleeping on it, OTTY Pure Hybrid Bamboo & Charcoal mattress can be quite helpful if you’re dealing with back issues. The seemingly perfect combo of memory foam and pocket springs make this mattress one of the best mattresses for adequate full-body support, as well as some excellent pressure and pain relief, especially around the core areas. In addition, if you have a sensitive skin, you should consider this product definitely.

Features you should know about the OTTY Pure Hybrid Bamboo & Charcoal mattress

This mattress is one of the four hybrid mattresses in the OTTY’s catalogue, and if you don’t know what separates it from the other three, it might be hard to understand why this one might be the right fit for you. On that note, here are a few words on the main features of this medium-firm, hybrid mattress.

6 different layers

This OTTY Pure hybrid mattress is made from 6 separate layers. The first layer is the foam-filled, charcoal-infused embroidered cover, which is not only hypoallergenic but also helps wick away moisture. Underneath it, we have a bamboo memory foam layer infused with charcoal to keep things cool. Not too many products have charcoal infused layers, so this is a huge plus for Otty Pure bamboo mattress which is also the first bamboo memory foam mattress. Bamboo fabric has a lot of benefits so no wonder that it is one of the most wanted types of fabrics in the world.

Next up, we have high-density, specially designed Reflex Foam, placed on top of the full-sized, pocket springs, for additional support and comfort. Finally, all of that lies on a high-density foam base and is surrounded by the Airflow side support layer, for both improved edge support and temperature regulation. Therefore, this is one of the best temperature regulating mattress options in our opinion.

2000 16cm encapsulated pocket springs

The main support layer of this mattress comes in the form of up to 2000 encapsulated pocket springs. These springs are full-sized, as they stand 16cm tall and are primarily responsible for the medium-firm rating of this mattress, as well as the excellent full-body support and motion isolation.

Airflow technology

The side support layer isn’t only there to improve on the edge support but is also there to help regulate the temperature of the OTTY Pure Hybrid Bamboo & Charcoal mattress. This unique Airflow technology makes this product one of the most breathable hybrid mattresses we have had the pleasure to sleep on.

Antibacterial & hypoallergenic properties

Despite being non-removable, the embroidered cover on this mattress is hypoallergenic and antibacterial. The charcoal-infused layers and foam-filled cover is a great addition to this mattress because it allows you not to worry about allergens such as dust mites.

CertiPUR certificate

All of the materials and foams used in the manufacturing of the mattress are perfectly safe to be used. CertiPUR certificate guarantees it. CertiPUR certificate states that despite this mattress being fire retardant, in accordance with UK laws and fire safety regulations, it is also completely free of potentially harmful chemicals and toxins such as TCPP, phosphates or parabens.

Review of OTTY Pure Hybrid Bamboo & Charcoal mattress

All in all, we feel like it is safe to say that this product is genuinely a perfect all-around mattress that should fit everyone’s needs and that offers a good value for money. It hits just the sweet spot when it comes to firmness, rated 6.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale. It contours your body perfectly, even when you’re switching the sleeping positions through the night. Also, while you’re doing that, this mattress manages to isolate almost all of your movements, so you don’t have to worry about waking up or disturbing your partner as you sleep.

It offers great support, both alongside the edges and within the main portion of the frame. It doesn’t get hot, at all, so if you’re a hot sleeper – this one could just be the one for you. On the other hand, this mattress needs to be rotated once a month during the first six months, but the lack of handles makes that harder than it has to be.

Also, this mattress does not come with a removable, machine-washable mattress, so that is another thing that we don’t find too appealing.

What makes this product better than some other similar ones?

What makes OTTY Pure Hybrid Bamboo & Charcoal mattress superior compared to the other similar mattresses is certainly excellent support. Not only will this mattress adequately support your body, but you also won’t feel like you’re slipping off of the mattress when you get near the edge, which is usually a big problem for hybrid mattresses.

How did we test the product?

When the time came for us to review this magnificent product, we wanted to focus on two main things – support and durability. Before we could do that, we needed to order the mattress. This went smoothly, the delivery was fast and free, and within a few days – we could begin our testing.

 The first thing we noticed upon unpacking this bed-in-a-box is how fast it unfolded. Within four hours – the mattress was ready to be slept on. We inspected the mattress for any faulty seams or stitching, and when we couldn’t find any – we proceeded with our testing.

 Each of our team members had spent ten nights sleeping on the mattress. During that time, they took notes and wrote down everything they found to be good, or bad, about this mattress.

 By comparing the notes and impressions from our team members, the first thing that caught our eye were the nice words about the support this mattress offers. Everyone was more than pleased with what this mattress had to offer. Everyone woke up pain-free and rested, regardless of their sleeping position.

 We determined that the mattress was also quite comfortable to sleep on, and as far as the firmness goes, we’ve come to a conclusion that this is a medium-firm mattress, as advertised. What we also found out is that OTTY Pure Hybrid Bamboo & Charcoal is arguably the coolest hybrid mattress we’ve ever slept on.

 Finally, we’ve performed a roller test, and fortunately, we’ve found out that OTTY Pure Hybrid Bamboo & Charcoal is also a very durable mattress.

Also, we’ve tested this mattress with a roller to simulate long-term use and test its durability and longevity and we have to say, results are much better than we expected.

On top of all that, we also focus on things like edge support, zone support, pain relief, pressure relief, motion isolation, weight distribution, bounce, breathability, hypoallergenic properties, alongside the features we’ve already mentioned.

FAQs about your new OTTY Pure Hybrid Bamboo & Charcoal mattress

Both solid and slatted bed frame bases work great with this mattress.
