I got this based on the reviews - I recently purchased a memory foam mattress that needs sheets/covers/etc with deep pockets. I wanted something waterproof, since I have a pet and would hate for my mattress to get ruined if my pet got sick on it or something while I was work and it got to the mattress. This one had good reviews, and it definitely has the stretch to go for deep pockets. It doesn't sound crinkly and it feels nice. The problem (and it's significant) is that the actual top is not as long or as wide as my mattress. I have no idea how it will perform over time, but if this had been a local purchase it would have gone right back to the store. For now, I'm just going to keep it and try to make it work, because I don't want to mess with trying to return it. I just wanted to put it out there that this might not actually cover the entire top of every mattress, even if you've ordered the appropriate size.
Good waterproofing! It make you HOT though! If you like yo be warm while sleeping this is the cover you. Not much of a "crinkle" noise, there was like the first 2 to 3 days but gone now. It is however a very tight fit! I give this an average rating, I personal despise being hot or sweaty while sleeping, so for the money spent I'm not truly happy, but it is good waterproofing though! Would be great product if it wasn't so hot, both my wife and myself wake up in the middle of the night sweating. We have to have a fan blowing on us to just stay asleep. I will be getting something different for us, but as I said, if you like being warm while sleeping then you will be very happy with this.
The pad material is soft. The side of the cover is made of a thin but sturdy material that wraps tightly around mattress and even fits under the mattress 3 or 4 inches. My Pad Cover is on a mattress that is 13 1/2 inches thick. Fits well. There is no sound when pad is fitted on mattress. The pad fits nice and tight around mattress. I cannot comment if it is waterproof as we did not put water on it to see if it holds liquid. Very pleased with this mattress pad and would purchase it again.
After reading the other reviews I was a little worried what I might get. But once I received my mattress pad it was exactly what I wanted. There is no smell what so ever and it does not make any noise. I took it out of the package put it on my bed and slept on it the same night. The quality is very good and fit my cal king perfect. I have had problems with others moving around but this one seems to stay put well. I would recommend this to anyone.
This cover is noisy at first, like plastic, but after a couple of nights it's quiet and soft now. I suppose it needs to get broken in. It is very soft and comfortable but it fits a little loosely. I have not spilled anything yet but its ok to sleep on for the interim.
