Weekender 10-Inch Hybrid Mattress Review
Weekender is one of the newest brands of Malouf, one of the biggest companies in the furniture and bedding industry. Founded in 2003, Malouf currently offers an extensive selection of bedding products, including bed frames, adjustable bed bases, mattress toppers, mattress protectors, pillows, and sheets.
Weekender was previously a hospitality line exclusive for Malouf before the brand was relaunched as a promotional line. With the Weekender brand, anyone can enjoy luxury and take home the hotel-grade sleep essentials they want. The Weekender brand features a comprehensive suite of sleep products, including mattress protectors, sheet separates, and pillows.
The Weekender 10-Inch Hybrid Mattress is currently the only mattress offered by the brand. The mattress features 3 types of foam and a layer of pocketed coils that provide consistent support and customized contouring. Plus, an infusion of cooling gel ensures helps with temperature regulation for deep, uninterrupted sleep all night.
Material and Construction
The Weekender 10-Inch Hybrid Mattress features multiple layers of foam and a thick base of pocketed coils. The foam layers and the coils work together to provide both support and comfort, giving the mattress a medium-firm feel that’s ideal for most sleepers.
This hybrid mattress contains four layers of material: a top quilting layer featuring gel-infused memory foam and transition foam, a second layer of transition foam, a third layer of convoluted foam, and a fourth and final layer of pocketed coils. Keeping these layers together is a cover made from polyester fabric.
The mattress’ top layer features a half-inch of gel-infused memory foam and a half-inch of transition foam. This top layer gives the mattress a medium-firm yet comfortable feel. Originally developed for NASA, memory foam is commonly made from polyurethane, with chemicals that improve its viscosity and density. This is why memory foam is often referred to as viscoelastic polyurethane foam. Placed in the mattress’ top layer, memory foam allows the mattess to conform to your shape, keeping you comfortable no matter what position you sleep in.
The memory foam material contains billions of open cells surrounded by and containing miniature air passages. These open cells compress once you lay in the bed, adjusting and letting air escape to adjacent cells. The open-cell structure not only improves the mattress’ flexibility but also eases the movement of air throughout the mattress. This prevents heat from being trapped in the mattress’ foam layers.
The infusion of cooling gel also improves the mattress’ overall comfort levels. Infusions of cooling gel are often more efficient compared to cooling beads. Unlike the infusion of cooling gel in this mattress, beads can absorb heat and warm up to body temperature, makign them less efficient at regulating temperature.
Under the Weekender hybrid mattress’ top layer of memory foam are two half-inch layers of transition foam. Transition foam is usually made from polyfoam material. These layers of transition foam serve as support for the memory foam layer and ensure even weight distribution. Heavier sleepers will also appreciate the deep compression support provided by the transition layer. The second layer of transition foam also eases the switch between the soft memory foam and the firmer layers of foam underneath.
The third layer of the Weekender hybrid mattress features an inch of convoluted foam. Convoluted foam is often made from polyurethane foam. This material is often called egg crate foam because of its design of peaks and valleys. Convoluted foam in this mattress serves two purposes: the ridges on the foam’s surface allow the material to be more flexible and responsive and the design also encourages better airflow throughout the mattress. The mattress’ layer of convoluted foam helps improves the mattress’ overall comfort levels.
The foam materials used in the Weekender hybrid mattress are CertiPUR-US certified, so you can rest assured of the mattress’ quality. The certification guarantees that the foam in this Weekender mattress meets industry standards for content, durability, and emissions. The foam used in this hybrid mattress is free from formaldehyde, regulated phthalates, ozone depleters, and heavy metals like lead and mercury. You can be sure that this mattress doesn’t contain any harmful or toxic substances.
At the base of this mattress is a layer of innerspring coils. At 7.5 inches, the base layer is the thickest among the other layers in the Weekender hybrid mattress. The layer comprises innerspring coils that are designed to provide long-lasting support, even along the edges of the mattress. Each coil comes with its own fabric encasing, which allows the coils to move independently. This goes a long way in cutting down motion transfer and providing customized, targeted support.
Wrapping up all these different materials are a polyester mattress cover. Polyester is an excellent fabric to use for a mattress cover because of its resilience. It’s also easier to wash and maintain compared to other fabrics. Polyester also makes the mattress’ cover fast-drying, which may help the mattress in wicking away moisture.
Aside from wicking away moisture, the mattress’ polyester cover also gives it a classy look. The cover has a two-tone design that makes this Weekender hybrid mattress attractive enough to be used even without sheets. This Weekender mattress will definitely add a touch of elegance to your bedroom.

Comfort and Ergonomics
The Weekender 10-Inch Hybrid Mattress is designed to provide the right balance of comfort and support. Since this is a hybrid mattress, you can expect not just contouring comfort but also a degree of bounce.
The Weekender hybrid mattress comes with multiple comfort layers to ensure that you get a good night’s sleep. The comfort layers features gel-infused memory foam and transition foam. Memory foam greatly improves the mattress’ ability to conform to your body’s shape, thanks to its open-cell structure. The open cells are flexible, so they can compress when needed to yield to your body and follow its curves.
This conforming ability helps with pressure relief, as the mattress will offer no resistance as you lay on it. You won’t feel any upwards pressure on your body from the mattress. You won’t even feel your own weight against the mattress as you lay in bed.
Since there is no upward resistance from the mattress itself even if you lay in one position for a long time, the memory foam helps improve circulation and prevents tissue damage. This is one of the best benefits of using a mattress with memory foam.
The layers of memory foam and transition foam also help ensure that the matress provides sufficient support. Memory foam is known for its ability to ensure even weight distribution. By evenly distributing your weight across the mattress’ surface, the mattress ensures that your weight isn’t just resting on one or two areas of the body, like the shoulders, hips, and heels. This means the mattress can provide even support to all areas of the body, including the lower back. And since this mattress offers sufficient lumbar support, you can wake up without pain or soreness in your lower back.
The thick base layer of innerspring coils also improves the mattress’ ability to provide adequate support. In fact, these pocketed coils are capable of giving you targeted support. Each metal coil comes with its own fabric casing, so each coil can compress and expand independently. This allows the innerspring coils to compress only where there is pressure; in the case of side sleepers, for instance, the coils would compress under the shoulders and hips.
The flexibility of the pocketed coils also support the natural curve of the back and keep the spine in proper alignment. Keeping the spine in neutral alignment is crucial, as this helps you wake up without back pain or soreness. No matter what position you sleep in, the pocketed coils – together with the layers of memory foam, transition foam, and convoluted foam – ensure that your spine is always neutrally aligned.
The pocketed innerspring coils also work to cut down motion transfer. Each innerspring coil comes in its own fabric casing, so each coil can move independently of the others. This ensures that energy won’t travel across the mattress. Even if your partner tosses and turns all night, you won’t feel a thing and you’ll be able to enjoy uninterrupted sleep.
The Weekender hybrid mattress has plenty of features that ensure sufficient cooling, too. The mattress features open-cell memory foam, which contains billions of air passages in its interior. These air passages ensure the constant movement of air throughout the mattress. This prevents heat from being trapped in the mattress and increasing its temperature.
Airflow throughout the mattress is also improved by its third layer of convoluted foam. The peaks and valleys built into the convoluted foam encourage the movement of air, which helps with heat dispersal as well.
The memory foam layer also has an infusion of cooling gel. This cooling gel works not only to cool down the mattress’ surface but also to regulate your body temperature. This makes it easier for you to reach the ideal body temperature for deep sleep. Once you reach this temperature, it’s easier to stay asleep, too.
The layer of innerspring coils in the Weekender hybrid mattress also improve cooling. This layer is 7.5 inches thick, and it makes up the bulk of the mattress. The coils create plenty of space within the mattress for air movement and heat dispersal. This prevents the mattress from trapping heat and being too warm to sleep on. The Weekender hybrid mattress always gives you a cool, comfortable sleeping surface.
Another feature that makes the Weekender hybrid mattress comfortable to use is the antimicrobial feature of its memory foam layer. Memory foam has a dense structure that discourages the growth of bacteria, mold, dust mites, and other allergens. This reduces the risk of the mattress triggering allergies or sensitivities. This also improves the cleanliness of the mattress over time.
The Weekender hybrid mattress may be more ideal for people with allergies or sensitivities to chemical smells. The flexible foam used in this mattress is CertiPUR-US certified. This means the foam materials don’t contain any toxic substances or harmful chemicals, like lead, mercury, regulated phthalates and ozone depleters. The mattress has low emissions of volatile organic compounds, so they help preserve indoor air quality.
Durability and Warranty
Weekender products were originally designed for the hospitality industry, so you can be sure that the brand’s products are durable and reliable. The Weekender 10-Inch Hybrid Mattress can last through the wear and tear of regular use and will always be comfortable and supportive.
This Weekender hybrid mattress comes with a 10-year limited warranty. This warranty protects your purchase against manufacturer defects.
The mattress’ top layer of open-cell memory foam is designed to be resilient. Open-cell memory foam is known to be more durable than closed-cell memory foam, as the former’s cells are more flexible. Open cells compress and allow air to escape, unlike closed cells that squeeze trapped air as they compress. Unlike closed cells, open cells won’t pop over time and cause body impressions or dips to form in the mattress.
Memory foam’s anti-microbial properties also help the mattress last longer. By limiting the spread of bacteria, mold, and other allergens, the memory foam layers ensure that your mattress doesn’t decay from the inside over the years.
The innerspring coils in the Weekender hybrid mattress are just as reliable. These coils are made from high-quality materials to ensure that they can consistently compress and expand as needed. This means you can count on the mattress to always provide targeted, customized support. The coils on the edges of the mattress are even firmer, so you can sit or lay on the mattress’ edges without sliding off.
The CertiPUR-US certification also assures you of this mattress’ durability. This certification indicates that the Weekender hybrid mattress has met industry standards for content and durability. You can definitely count on this mattress to last through years of regular use.
The mattress has a resilient cover made from polyester, too. Polyester is an excellent choice for a mattress cover because the fabric is resilient and will last against wear and tear. You may even be able to do spot-cleaning on the mattress in case stains occur. This way, you can keep the Weekender hybrid mattress fresh and clean for a longer time.
