I was looking for a set of pillow protectors and these fit the bill as far as the price. I'd give it 5 stars but reduced it to 4 because the zipper pull is a little long and it pokes out a bit. Enough where I feel in through my actual 600tc pillowcases. To prevent them from poking me in the face, I have to make sure that the zippered part is at the very bottom where there will be some taming them as opposed to having them at the open end. I looked elsewhere for pillow protectors without zipper closure, but could not find any. Oh well, for the price, its worth dealing with.
