This item gives "You get what you pay for" a whole new meaning. When I picked up the box, I knew something was wrong. I think with the box, and packagin, it was just over 2 pounds(1-1/2 pound probably being the cardobard box). You can actually see through this pad. There's very little of anyting in the so called pockets. 1/16th inch thick is a liberal statement. It's probably more like 1/32" thick! If I were to put this over a matress it would literally be as though nothing was on top of that matress. No exxageration whatsoever! That's truthfully how pathetic this matress pad is. Be forewarned. I'm returning it, and if you don't want to go through returning an item, PLEASE buy a different pad. Spend more money if you have to to get what you want. This is certainly not it!
