A hybrid mattress blends foam and pocket springs in one mattress. Usually this involves a more substantial foam layer than other mattresses that are marketed as innerspring.
A hybrid mattress offers a 'best of both worlds' type feel, where there is added support from the pocket coils and a comfortable, pressure point relieving surface.
Though there are latex and memory foam hybrids, the feel of them can be quite different because of the response of the latex vs the memory foam's slow response.
Pros: Best of both worlds with memory foam / latex and pocket coils provide ultimate comfort and support.
Cons: Beware of the foams being used as some hybrids still off-gas or sag because of lower quality materials.

Hybrid mattresses are made with memory foam or latex layers above pocket springs. The pocket springs are manufactured by bending heated steel into springs, pocketing them into fabric, and then stitching them into the mattress. Learn more about how latex and memory foam are produced.
