I am not the kind who takes time to write reviews, but I made an exception for this product. I had done a lot of research before going with this bamboo pad. I wanted something cooling at night (vs my memory foam mattress alone) . While it's not perfect (ie has it's own brain to cool me down when too hot, then warm up when I'm too cold :) ), it does create a noticeably cooler environment to sleep at night. AND it is SO comfy wonderful, adding just the right amount of extra cush. My husband even noticed and said he liked it (and he rarely notices stuff like that). Would highly recommend AND specifically purchasing from Overstock vs Amazon - a much better deal!
Like many others here, judging from the reviews I see for toppers, fiberbeds, etc, I am in search of the perfect comfortable night's sleep...I have tried featherbeds, fiberbeds, memory foam, waffle foam, etc, and nothing has done the job of keeping me pain free through the night. The only comforable bed I have ever had was a waveless waterbed, but now I cannot have that, I am searching...and I just got this topper yesterday and spent one night on it...and while I am not completely in heaven, I am well on the way! This topper is well made and very plush and comfortable. I am experimenting with what I put under it, on top of my hard bed...last night I tried 2 inches of regular memory foam and 3 inches of "big bump" memory foam, and it was very nice, but I think I can do better, tonight I will switch the memory foams around and see what happens. I heartily recommend this topper! I can tell that it will last and not compress into flat lumpiness, like the last fiber topper I tried.
I've done a lot of research on cooling pads. I ended up with this one. I chose this item for two reasons. 1) it was something I was looking for. something that would keep me cooler at night 2) it was was highly recommended by the product reviews. Once seeing how well others liked this, I placed my order. I was very excited when it arrived. It does have a cool touch, however, I found it made me very hot throughout the night. Halfway through the second night, I had to pull everything off the bed including the cooling pad. I wish I could say this did it's job...for some it may, it just didn't work for me.
This is a nice soft mattress topper/pad, it however is not cool to touch and will not give a sensation of a cooler sleeping surface, It is thicker than most mattress pads but not enough to provide any extra cushioning to your mattress.
This is the most expensive mattress pad I've ever bought. It's very cushy and fits great. The shipping on my bed was delayed so haven't tried out the cooling properties yet. Kind of doubt it will do that. But it is very soft and cushy. I'll review again after I've washed it if I have any issues there but it does seem to be of very good quality as it should be for the price!
I debated buying this for a few weeks. I had bought a memory foam mattress about 10 months ago. I have been overheated ever since and I really needed to get something to cool me down. This has done the trick. I'm so pleased that I purchased this. I no longer have hot spots were I have been and I get a much better night sleep.
I will start off by saying, the reason this did not get 5 stars is because the "cool touch" claim is inaccurate. It is very,very cushy and comfortable, but not cooling. I have a Tempurpedic bed and it tends to be warm, so a cooling mattress topper sounded perfect. I am thrilled with this mattress topper. My bed is even more comfortable now, just not cool. If you are looking for a thick, plush mattress topper, this is worth every penny.
