This is an excellent item if you are just looking for a mattress protector. However I purchased this due to the fact that we had bed bugs invade our home. The cover was an attempt to try to save our bed, and our sanity. However, this item does not seal. At the top it zips, then has a velcro closure. The spaces at the velcro juncture allowed for the bed bugs to escape. Ended up having to throw our the bed and the bed bag I just spent $$$ on, after only two weeks. I can verify the item does not close, since at the closure we found bugs coming in and out, along with their fecal material. Total waste of money when it comes to actually dealing with bed bugs.
