This is actually the second set of Outlast sheets I ordered. First ones were in white. They were so soft, that when we'd switch every wash to other "regular" high quality sheets, I would find myself sad getting into bed. These Outlast sheets immediately feel warmer to my frozen toes when I get into bed. My husband LOVES the softness. So, I bought a set for us to have on alternate washes! Also I bought a set in a different color, so I can immediately tell them if I accidentally forget to do the washing, and another for our kid, who tends to run hot. I am planning to hide the "regular" sheets. One note: you are not supposed to wash or dry these in hot water. I had to instruct my hubby, who usually does the laundry, but I told him too late. The softness was not affected, but the temperature control properties may have been; all I know is that these are still my favorite sheets by far, of any I've had.
