We have an expensive Royalpedic latex mattress which we did not want to get wet, when our grand kids come over, as they like to sleep on our bed. We purchased this as we were unimpressed with the selection offered in several stores and this looked, at least from the pictures, to be very high quality. Our instincts worked, as this mattress pad is the best we have had. It is extremely soft and comfortable. We also love the bamboo as it provides a cooling effect we have not had with other mattress covers. We give this a thumbs up. We will be buying additional units for our guest rooms.
