We had a slight bed bug problem at our apartment - gross. This mattress cover, along with "fogging" our whole building, has helped solve the problem. The mattress cover is easy to put on, doesn't tear, and zips up easily. Once you put sheets over it, you can't even tell it's on there. It's also larger than I thought. I have a pillow top mattress, but it still had plenty of room left after we put it on. Great product!
