This protector is great because its thin material, so smooth under your sheets, zips on so stays on (no corners popping off), fits like a pillow case. I haven't washed it yet, so I can't address that. Putting it on is a bit more of a challenge, but well worth it. Would be really excellent for someone with allergies, because it completely surrounds your mattress. I have mine on a king size11 inch foam mattress and it was plenty big, so thicker ones would probably fit no problem.
Recieved yesterday. I placed it on the bed right away, It is typical of allergy type mattress protections in that it encases the whole mattress. It is put on the mattress like a pillow case with a zipper. This is usually very hard to manage with any mattress cover of this kind. I was please to find that it slid pretty easy over both my newer taller mattress and also my 3 inch mattress topper with less effort then I ever experienced before. It may be a bit crinkly, but I think once worn in a bit, It will improve. It really did not bother my sleep at all. Very happy that I was able to include my mattress topper. It made the topper stay in place as it tends to move an inch or 2 to either side of the bed and needing to be readjusted. I am a happy camper so far with the cover. The price was right too. It was on sale the day I purchased it.
Does everything it says! We purchased this to protect our new foam mattress and it fits like a glove on 11" depth mattress but there is no wiggle room. Fairly easy to put on and I love that it zips for complete coverage. Will recommend.
I read other reviews and noted the complaints of weak zipper, but the price was too good to not try it, compared to other dust mite protection covers. So I took a chance. The package came in less than a weak. The fabric is pretty lightweight, and one side is plastic coated, so that must be used as the top. (That might be a problem if you plan to turn your mattress over.) We have a 15 inch deep mattress. The cover went on, but it was a little tight. I had my husband help me and we stood the mattress up on end to slide the cover down around it, starting at the top. When it was on all the way, we laid the mattress down and I started to zip carefully. I got about 1/3 of the way and the zipper popped open behind what I'd zipped. I thought if I zipped all the way across I might be able to zip back and forth and get it to connect again but couldn't get the zipper to do it. So, I ended up whip stitching with a needle and thread around the zipper to close the cover up. It won't be coming off to wash, but it should keep the dust mites out.
We have had this for two years. In that time, my husband has sweat on it (he's ruined two mattresses this way), our children have urinated, spit up, and vomited on it, I've leaked breastmilk on it, and I recently gave birth on it. Despite all this abuse, our mattress still looks brand new. Prior to using this product we'd tried many mattress protectors. Most didn't make it through a wash cycle. Others made us too hot. This one has survived many wash and dry cycles. It doesn't make us too hot. It makes a little bit of noise when moving, but not like the cheap protectors we've tried in the past. The one negative is the zipper broke very soon after we purchased it. The waterproof function still works great, though.
I rent out a furnished room in my home and this is great for helping assure myself and my renters that they are coming into a clean environment. The cover is machine washable, so I can easily clean it between guests and not have to worry about bodily fluids and/or other contaminants. The cost was really great, and it's pretty easy to get on and off a Queen bed by myself (I'm 5' 2"). A friend told me about other models that are somewhat easier to remove/replace. But on my budget, this model fit the bill.
I wasn't excited about purchasing a mattress protector, as the one I got for my boyfriend, from another company, shredded within weeks. This product is great and has done well with washing and mattress rotations. There's no noticeable difference to the feel of the bed and it doesn't make me sleep hot. I'm very happy with this product and have purchased another for my boyfriend as well.
the zipper was sketchy the first time I put this on the mattress. I knew I should have returned it then but it was such a production to get it on a queen size bed alone that I let it be. After one wash the zipper totally doesn't work (the teeth do not line up). It also makes your bed so incredibly hot. do NOT buy this product.
This product was a huge disappointment. A mattress cover- no big deal, right? Wrong. The whole thing goes over your California king mattress, then you have to zip it up. It took me, a young, physically fit woman nearly an hour just to get the darn thing on and then when I finally did and went to zip it up, the zipper broke! I'm calling overstock right after writing this review to see if I can get my money back. Piece. Of. Garbage. Don't buy this one!
Was shipped and received in under a week. As some have mentioned before me thee is an audible crisp semi plastic kind of sound upon opening and unfolding the mattress protector, however it is silent during use. I am able to enter and exit the bed, roll around and even flop on the bed with no audible indication that there is anything other then sheets on the bed. If I did not put it on myself I would be unaware that it was even there. I was able to put it on with moderate effort alone and I have a king sized mattress. I am unable to attest to its ability to keep moisture and insects out. I got a new mattress with this and there have not been any spills as of yet.
