While each Simba mattress shares some attributes, you’ll find differences among them as well.  The Simba Hybrid Essential is a pocket sprung foam mattress and consists of three layers including the a ‘Simabtex’ foam layer, as much as 1500 Aereocoil mini pocket springs, and a foam base layer that is five-zoned.  If you include the mattress cover, it can also be considered a four layer mattress.



Mattress Cover

The Simba Hybrid Essential mattress includes a hand-knitted, hypoallergenic, 500g top cover that is incredibly soft. The downside cover of the cover is that it cannot be removed from the mattress and therefore also cannot be washed.

Firmness, Feel & Support

All Simba Sleep mattresses have been built to ensure the highest level of comfort, no matter which position you like to sleep in. They achieve this through their use of 2,500 to 6,000 conical pocket springs along with responsive memory foam.  You’ll find that there is minimal motion transfer so you won’t risk disturbing your partner. This Edge Lift technology offers a level of support for sleepers in any position.

Simba has engineered their mattresses to work for people of any shape or size. Their warranty covers up to 18 st. (114 kg) per sleeper. Each mattress has a medium-firm feel, with this specific one about a 7.5/10 on the firmness scale.
