I replaced a plastic mattress cover with this one. The old plastic crinkled and made lots of noise every time I moved. This one is very quiet and comfortable. haven't had any spills yet but the backing material appears to be water resistant. So I like it so far.
We purchased another waterproof mattress pad from a big box store with very disappointing results. This less expensive pad, however, provided exceptionally quality. The fit, feel and quiet (the other pad registered every move) of this pad exceeded our expectations.
This product has exceeded my expectations so far. Nice thick padding, no plastic-y feel or crinkling. No added body heat at night and is a nice snug fit on my king-sized bed. Elastic sides are good quality and stretch to allow for this tight fit. My one caveat is that I have not had a major spillage or accident on the bed to confirm that it is waterproof and will update my review if and when that happens. So far, very pleased with my purchase.
My young daughter has accidents at night every so often. The first time, this mattress pad did the job beautifully, but after washing, it has failed twice in two separate areas of the mattress pad. Luckily, the memory foam topper stopped the liquid from continuing to the new mattress, but it's pretty difficult to clean the memory foam. I spent a lot of money on this product (for two queen beds!) and am very disappointed. I wish Overstock still carried the ones I bought a few years ago for our twin bed.
