I was looking for a pillow protector that would keep feathers from polking out, and these work perfectly! What a bonus that they are water resistant and inhibit bacteria and allergens. Also, they are a great fabric that helps the pillowcase stay on. Highly recommended! They aren't cheap, but are guaranteed for 10 years.
I was hesitant to purchase waterproof pillow protectors and also wasn't sure about the light-weight terry cloth, but after reading many of the reviews, I decided to give them a chance. I am pleasantly surprised that neither my husband or me can tell there is a waterproof barrier. Our pillowcases stay put, too, due to the terry-cloth. The quality is excellent and the 10-yr warranty is definitely a plus. Go ahead, purchase these. You'll love them!
Free at last! Yes, I am finally free of getting stuck in the face with the wrong end of a birds feather. These pillow protectors are so perfect. I was hesitant to pay the price for these, but then I figured you know what, it's time for this American to start buying more products made in America. I was not disappointed at all and was even really pleased.
I purchased this product after using the matching mattress cover which I was very happy with. My elderly mom ,who's ill, has frequent night sweats, and was frequently waking up to a soggy down pillow untillI I started using this pillow cover. Now, only the outside of the cover gets damp, but the pillow itself stays dry,and the cover dries quickly. The outside of the cover is like fine terry cloth, and the inside has a soft rubber-like layer which prevents water from getting to the pillow. My mom is very picky and complains about EVERYTHING, but she has not even noticed a difference since I've put this cover on her pillows, and I'm not about to tell her. It's enough for me to know that she's not laying on a soaked through pillow all night.
Exactly what I wanted. Quality product, still holding up many months and washings later!

It has a thin terry cloth exterior which I was a little worried about coming through but once you put the pillowcase on it is like it isn't there. It also helps the pillowcase to stay on the pillow. Definitely nice to know that it is protecting my feather pillows from fluids. With young children this is a must. Very happy with my purchase and over a year later it is still like new.

I tried the waterproof pillow covers from my local department store but they crinkled a bit when the pillow was moved. I also had to safety pin the regular pillowcase over the cover so the pillowcase would stay on. I thought "I can live with this." A month later, however, after the waterproof cover had been sweat upon nightly it began sounding louder as though it was becoming more brittle. Which, in fact, it was. A month after that both "waterproof pillow covers" were split, making them not only loud but useless. Needless to say I went looking for something better. Tuffguard Breathable Waterproof Pillow Protecters are what I wanted in the first place. They are quiet and the pillowslips stay on thanks to the pillow protecters' cloth covers. The only thing different I should have done was to buy two sets rather than one so a clean set can be put on while the other set is carefully handwashed and hung to dry when needed. Two other quick comments. When the pillow protectors are put on, leave the zipper open an inch to allow the trapped air to get out. Also, I received my order in two days rather than the seven I was told to expect. Way to go, Overstock.com.
These pillow protectors are the best I have come across. They are substantial fabric, well made and do not seem like they would be waterproof as there is no sign of any "plastic" or waterproof type of material. No sweating or heat at night. Very comfortable. Fit the pillows well. I have the king size and they stay in place with no shifting. I highly recommend this product!
I purchased this pillow protector to use with Famous Maker Premier 600 Fill Power Pyrenees Down Triple Chamber Pillows. I am not certain, but it appears that the protector may interfere with the pillows ability to react to pressure somewhat, but this has not been a major issue. I may try to use the pillow without the protector for one night to see the difference. If there is a big difference, I would probably go with a looser fitting cover.
