This mattress pad works. I had no problems fitting it onto my full mattress and having it stay in place. As soon as I got it, I poured an 8 oz. glass of water on it and there was no leaking through. There was an accident in the bed and it works as it should; mattress stayed dry. The pad doesn't crinkle or make any noise at all when you move. It held up in the washer and I let it air dry. My one complaint is that it makes the bed hot, presumably because the fabric doesn't breathe. I tried it with just this mattress pad and with another mattress pad on top of it, but it's hot both ways. It wasn't so bad that it was unbearable though. Overall, I would recommend this mattress pad because it does completely protect the mattress.
I thought this was going to be a gret waterproof pad but I'm very disappointed. It is hot to sleep on because any perspiration you might emit just makes the sheet and pad damp. Not fun! And it is too big. The elasticized skirt that fits down the sides and under the mattress is too loose and doesn't hold the pad in place. After one night's sleep it is all pulled up and lumpy and requires constant retucking. It also makes sounds when you move on it! I wouyld not recommend this pad to anyone.
While I am sure the product meets its description of being waterproof. However, you cannot sleep on it under your sheets without being drenched in sweat even in cool weather. It is not a breathable water barrior. We ended up putting a 4" foam pad over it, than it works OK, but doesn't serve its purpose of protecting the foam.
I can see why some would not like this product because it definitely fits a deep mattress. However, I have a featherbed and foam pad on top of my mattress and it works perfectly!! If you have a deep mattress or a lot of junk on your bed to make it more comfortable, this is for you. Also, we had a different sort of waterproof mattress pad before this one and that one was MUCH MUCH hotter. I don't think this one if hot, really at all. Any waterproof material is going to be a little hot though...
The mattress cover has a plastic lining on the underneath side and night after night we kept waking up sweating. We finally realized it was the new mattress cover. We eventually added a feather topper to throw over the mattress to lay on, and now it is fine.

Great quality. Had just purchased twin size waterproof mattress pads locally and had trouble with putting them in the dryer (plastic stuck together). With this one, there is a light covering on the inside of the pad that makes for a finer feel and seemed to protect against the problem with the dryer. Top side is luxurious.
We've had this mattress pad for over a year and a half. It's still in PERFECT condition. It's stayed nice through kids jumping on the bed (only Dad lets them do that), two huge dogs playing on the bed (ok that's my fault), and has saved my tempur-pedic mattress from several spills (how do these thing wind up in my room?). If ever I need to buy another, I will search this one out. The first one we had cost at least $75 and lasted maybe a year. This one is a MUCH better buy (micorfiber waterproof mattress pad, where have you been all my life?).

This matteress pad will protet your mattress and does seem to be watreproof. The problem is though how to clean it. I ollowed the directions on the label. I had it in the dryer on low heat and after 6 minutes opened my drier to find that it had tinted the inside of my drier a light green.

We bought this because we have a 3 year old that sometimes crawls in bed with us and unfortunately has wet the bed. Irionically since we have put this on, no 'accidents' have occurred. Murphy's Law!! Maybe we could just try some water to see how water-proof it really is. It fits our mattress very snug, and we have a 3 inch memory foam. So i was very happy about the fitting. The down-side is that it is VERY hot. This will be great during the cold Colorado winters. It is comfortable, and does not make any 'plastic' noises. All in all, i would say that this product is serving it's purpose.

This is an excellent purchase, again, from Overstock. The waterproof mattress pad is high quality, well made with deep pockets to fit over our king mattress without breaking a wrist trying to get it over the corners. Washed up great! Soft, nice texture for a waterproof mattress pad and very close to the one we purchased with our new mattress last year that cost almost $100. You can NEVER beat Overstocks' shipping and fast order processing. Thanks again for another perfect item!!!! I would recommend this to anyone in my family - and have.
I hate noisy waterproof covers...and this one sounded like a ferret caught in plastic bag. There is not a doubt in my mind that it was waterproof. From the sound alone I'd say it'd be effective even if you put a horse in the bed... I returned this item and bought a cover from a local chain store.
If you don't mind feeling hot at night this is great for you. I was looking for the microfiber and I never found it. It is just a cotton, not even soft, cover with a shower curtain on the inside for the waterproof barrier. Not to say that is bad but it is "as advertised" and you will get what you pay for. I am sending this back, I cannot deal with the constant sweating
I own a beach house that gets rented so we have waterproof mattress pads on all the beds. This is the first one I have purchased from overstock, and its great. Fits well, washes well and isn't noisy or crinkly. I dont get too hot sleeping on it, but I do put a regular mattress pad over it.

The thing I was most worried about was whether the mattress pad was deep enough for my seemingly enormously deep mattress. Not to worry, though, because this pad had depth to spare and I'll never have to worry about it becoming detached from the mattress while I sleep. A bargain at any price!
