From what our industry sources have told us, this mattress was meticulously and carefully designed to be the best. As a result, the Panda Hybrid is designed for people who:
Apart from the good old “good night's sleep”, the Panda Hybrid's great for many other things, including:
What makes Panda Hybrid Bamboo “the world's most advanced, breathable bamboo mattress”?
Bamboo's naturally antibacterial, bacteriostatic, antifungal and hypoallergenic making it the perfect fabric for people with allergies or sensitive skin. Or anyone else for that matter…
Not only will dust mites and other nasties not be able to live in your mattress, but you'll also be less likely to wake up with a stuffy nose or sneeze in the middle of the night.
Multi-zonal springs provide different levels of support where you need it most – your head, shoulders, hips, back and legs. This results in better spinal alignment and superior motion isolation.
Each of the 1,500 individually nestled premium pocket springs moves independently from one another, so you won't feel your partner tossing and turning all night long. And, if there's anything left to muffle and absorb – a high-density foam base will pick it up!
In order to deliver less hot and less smelly memory foam, Panda's engineers cooked up a bamboo-infused version. This not only gives you a cooler night's sleep but also ensures that any funky odours never reach your bedroom due to bamboo's natural deodorising properties.
Cotton's good, but bamboo yarn's even better. Not only is it several times more absorbent and softer than cotton, but it's also more elastic, easier to manufacture and is a natural deodoriser. Speaking of deodorizing…
Keeping things clean and fresh is a breeze with the Panda Hybrid's bamboo cover. Simply unzip it and chuck it in the wash when it needs a quick freshen-up.
We'll get to this later, but for now, know that Panda Hybrid utilises some of the most environmentally-friendly materials ethically garnered from sustainable sources.
Furthermore, Panda London is invested in rainforest protection projects, so you can rest assured that every mattress sold helps save a tree and help the planet!
If there was ever a doubt in your mind about the longevity and durability of this mattress, rest easy knowing that it's backed by a 10-year warranty – as is the case with most Panda products like Panda pillow or Bamboo mattress topper.
And, if for some reason you're not happy with it or it's not what you were expecting, you can send it back within the first 100 nights for a full refund – no questions asked.
If our experience has taught us anything, that's that Panda London's the place for high-quality products – from bamboo and memory foam pillows to lightweight duvets. And finally, we got a full-sized mattress to test and review.
So, how did it perform?
Objectively speaking, this medium-frim to firm (depending on your body weight) mattress is on another level in terms of quality, comfort and support it offers. But, since everyone's different, your impressions may vary. Nonetheless, we think this one stuck a perfect balance between support and comfort and would be ideal for most types of sleepers.
When it comes to breathability, Panda took a big step in the right direction by fusing bamboo with its open-cell memory foam. This not only resulted in a cooler and more comfortable night's sleep but also sidestepped “industry-standard charcoal-infused memory foam” to achieve similar results.
However, what really took us by surprise was the level of motion isolation and pressure relief the Bamboo Hybrid provides.
The seven-zoned pocket springs do an excellent job of keeping your pressure points unbothered while also providing next-to-no motion transfer – no matter how much you or your partner tosses and turns.
What's even more surprising is that it does all that without compromising on bounce and responsiveness. On the contrary, the springs provide just enough “give” to make extracurricular bed activities pleasant and not-at-all taxing.
All in all, we think it's an excellent choice for pretty much anyone, with deep enough pockets, because this level of quality comes at a premium.
Honestly, we can't find anything actually wrong with this mattress. Sure, it's expensive, but it's not overpriced.
If we had to nitpick, though, we would say that the it is a bit tedious trying to put the bamboo cover back on after you wash it. But, that's really a minor inconvenience in the grand scheme of things.
Also, if you'd like to avoid doing that on the regular – you can. At 27 cm, this puppy will get seamlessly snuggled by any mattress protector out there.
If you'd like to further explore your options and feast your eyes on another primetime hybrid – here's a neat recommendation.
Simba’s known for high-quality sleep products and sleep accessories, so it shouldn’t surprise you that their Luxe mattress is a sound alternative to Panda Hybrid.
This 10-layer marvel of a medium-firm mattress provides a superbly supportive feel that is suited for any sleeping position. On top of all that, it excels in virtually every category you’d want it to – from sturdy support and sumptuous comfort to durability and longevity.
And, while the motion isolation certainly isn’t on a Panda Hybrid level, the Simba Hybrid Luxe is still a great choice for anyone looking for a top-of-the-line mattress.
We've kind of already hinted at this, but the fact that Panda stuck to their bamboo ways and didn't decide to go with charcoal or gel infusion to try and cool down their mattress is pretty darn cool. (Pun not intended, but we're rolling with it.)
Not only did this move result in a more eco-friendly product, but the bamboo's moisture-wicking properties did a fantastic job at keeping things BOTH dry and cool!
Testing a mattress isn't as easy as it seems, and it involves a lot more than just sleeping on the job. In fact, all of our tests consist of the following three:
To further explain, here's how we'd go about testing the breathability and temperature control of a mattress:
In a word? Yes. But let's expand…
Every single ounce of bamboo fibre used in this mattress is sourced from approved and sustainable forests, where the bamboo trees grow pesticide-free.
No harmful chemicals were used in the production of this mattress (REACH, OEKO-Tex and CertiPUR certifications), and the foams (while they can't be reduced to the original plastic polymers) can be 100% recycled.
Box packaging mattress comes in is fully recyclable and is produced from a minimum of 80% recycled material. One Tr1be partnership ensures that every purchase contributes to rainforest conservation and helps offset some of the carbon footprint made by the company.
To say we were very pleased with what we experienced while testing the Panda Hybrid Bamboo mattress would be an understatement.
This almost-flawless mattress had us at “hello”, and the longer we spent testing it, the more we realised it wasn't just the bamboo fibres that made it so special.
Panda's top-notch craftsmanship and clever cooling and support tech resulted in one of the best mattresses we've ever had the pleasure of testing, and we can confidently say it's a bed worth every single penny.
Our rating: 9.8/10. It's worth it, but we had to cut half a point for pricing!
