Recommendations pretty please

Hi there, sorry in advance if I went about this wrong. I’m not much of a forum user. I am in need of a new mattress.

About me:
5’ 10"
-Back Sleeper 95%, side sleep the other 5%
-I prefer a firm mattress because it feels good on my back. I have degenerative disc disease so support is great. My old one is all memory foam with a cooling topper. It worked well for about 4 years and is just hurting my back really bad.
-If possible, I would prefer a nice hybrid mattress but with being able to change/swap the top if I want to
-I tend to be a hot sleeper which is why I had to buy that cooling topper on my memory foam

  • My budget is around 1300$
    -lastly, I love quality. I like my purchases to last a long time or at least be honored with a great warranty

I did go to the store and lay on them. Like always, they all feel nice because they are new. They are all big name brands that sacrifice quality like Serta, Beauty rest, tempurpedic, etc
