Good night, sleep tight.....
I bought this as a precaution, I do not actually have BB's. In my opinion I f you live in an apartment complex you should ALWAYS use these! BB's are a nightmare to get rid of and it's plain old gross to have bugs crawling on you as you sleep! Instead of buying 2 of these I bought a clear mattress moving bag and covered the box spring and taped it to seal it closed. This saved me some money. I definitely recommend this!
Oh and to the people that said it's made of a thin material and it ripped on them...how rough were you being? The material is of moderate thickness and yes if you pull it hard enough I'm sure it will rip. But common sense would tell you to put it on gently especially since your covering a large heavy object (a mattress).HondaLvrLori
When I purchase products, I always read a mix of reviews, and pay close attention to the most negative.
This product not only is a great price, but works well, and I’d think will last for a long time.
You’ll not find it thick, but a soft, strong thin material. This not only makes it easy to install, but unobtrusive when sleeping.
There is no plastic sent, or order at all some new covers have.
I stood my mattress on end, and dropped the covering down over the top so that the flap at the zipper end drops down.
After laying it back, this made the seams line up beautifully, and it was easy to close the Velcro and zipper.
The cover has plenty room for my pillow top with some play left over.
Once I made my bed with pad, sheets, I don’t even think about it anymore, and probably won’t need to wash it unless the bed gets wet for some reason.
That brings me to it being water proof, a great design feature.
All in all, I think it’s a great product and the pricing is good for the protection it provides.ForereelOne
Satisfactory for the price
Found we had bedbugs! Cannot afford to replace 3 beds...so, we decided to give these a go. They fit over the beds well. Really like the idea of velcro under the zippered part. I read in a review someone recommended using duct tape over the zippered part on a different brand, but it doesn't seem necessary in this case. Plus, you can wash them whereas if you duct taped I would think that would render them ruined. I don't know much about bed bugs, but I hope that they and or the little ones cannot get through the breathable-type fabric. Crossing my fingers! Had these on the beds for only 3 days . . . and so far no sign of them. I would recommend that you put them on outside and then bring them in just in case any little buggers get knocked off in the processs! Oh, the price is so so much better than on another website. They would've been more like $89 a piece and you need to buy two per bed- one for the box spring and one for the mattress.Commentator55
Bad Quality & Workmanship
I was excited to receive my bag in the mail. However, short after opening the package I noticed the thin and delicate fabric the bag was made of. Once I slipped my mattress into the bag I began the process of zipping the bag closed. I encountered a resistance problem when I reached midway zipping the bag closed. At. this point I realized I had to pull the bag forward since it was a tight fit. I managed to pull some excess forward to finish zipping the bag closed. However, once I zipped it closed I closely inspected every side of the bag to make sure it was completely sealed whereupon I notice a 5 inch rip on the seam just below the middle end of the zipper. The only thing I thought I could do was to sew it up quickly and hop the seam holds. The fabric is paperlike and does not seem heavy duty enough and capable of lasting for a long period. I fear will probably have to buy another bag soon. Very disappointed the quality of this product.
I like it, seems fine to me...
I feel fortunate that I have never had a bed bug situation, and I hope I never do. For the price, I decided to get this one because I wanted a full coverage mattress pad/protector. I do have some allergies, so I figured this would be nice to have for that, too.
I noticed some complained about difficulty in putting this cover on the mattress by oneself. It has been my experience that is the problem with ANY full coverage mattress pad/protector. Mattresses were not created to cooperate with that sort of action. I put this on all by myself, now I am sitting for a short while to recuperate. That is a task that is ALWAYS difficult with any brand. Not exclusive to this.
It seems well-made, it seems sturdy. It will fully suit my purposes. I'm happy with this purchase and recommend it to anyone. IF it keeps out, or traps inside, any bed bugs, that would be frosting on the cake. =)Calypso4811
