Rated 4 out of 5 by LLBeanHappyTraveler Excellent except who wants a noisy bed?
Quality in craftsmanship! The loft is very generous. The depth of the sides is ample to cover a thick mattress and the elastic goes entirely around the edge. The corners are made of quality nylon for a better fit.
I wanted to love this mattress pad, but what is that paper like crinkly sound? The sound seems to come from the 100% cotton cover and sides. The nylon corners are soft and silent. Is the cotton fabric too thin for this use?
The chemical-like odor was strong when I opened the plastic bag in which the cover was packed, so I washed and dried the cover. When I removed it from the drier, the odor was not as strong but the noise was annoying. I have left it out in a spare room to see if the odor would be gone with airing ... yes it smells better.
The size seems generous enough to cover a thick mattress but I cannot comment on how well it fit my mattress or any thing about sleeping on the mattress pad as I did not want the odor to transfer to my mattress.
I wonder if there is a flame retardant added to the fabric causing the chemical odor and the crinkling sound.
I gave this item 4 stars as some people may not be as annoyed by the sound as I am. I believe the odor will improve with time and laundering.
I am ambivalent about returning to LL Bean; I am giving it more time ... maybe additional laundering will soften the noise.
:( Sorry, I am for a negative comment.

This mattress pad is the only pad I have found that goes all the way to the edge of my mattress up and down and across, and it is so soft, not too thick and not to thin, just right. LOVE IT!

Definitely makes for a better night's sleep--it's soft, cozy and doesn't bunch or shift. Great great product.

This is a very high-quality product. It fits my queen-size mattress to perfection. It adds an extra layer of softness to my mattress that is delightful. It is well worth the investment. I expect this product will last for years. When I do need another one, I will return to LL Bean to make the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by studio1 Outstanding Mattress Pad
This mattress pad is pricey, but it is really well made and outstanding in quality. The sides that fit down over the edge of the mattress are not made of some cheap material but are all cotton like the rest of the pad.
I thought it might be too lofty for comfort at first, but that is not the case. It is extremely comfortable. We like it very much.

The pad is a bit larger than my mattress, so I have no fear of shrinkage. The thickness feels great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by cj100 Why is this mattress pad only 80 inches for a king
We have purchased many, many items from LLBean over the years. You don't seem to sell the "regular" mattress pad any more so we figured we'd try the primaloft. Width wise it is fine..but the length is too short, leaving about a 2 inch gap on the top (or bottom) of the mattress. Why would you make it only 80 inches long on a king and 82 for the queen?? A king mattress is not a square..it needs that 2 inches. We are very disappointed. Please bring back your regular 100 percent cotton mattress pad and make it the right length!

This mattress pad is VERY cozy, and it makes for a good night's sleep. It definitely is plush, so if you like your bed linens to be taut, as opposed to downy soft, you might want to steer clear of this product. I LOVE mine though! I look forward to a winter of reading in bed on this wonderful pad.

It was not as cushy as I would have thought for the price. I am using it but I was disappointed.
