Rated 3 out of 5 by Aldente Bunches up under sheet!
This was a deal breaker for me. Everything else about the pad was great, but the bunching up of it underneath my sheets got to be very annoying! I even tried to shrink it in a hot dryer which definitely made it a better fit, but then over time it seems to stretch out. I would not probably recommend this to a friend unless this is something you could live with..

So far I am happy with the size and feel of the mattress pad. No problems so far with the use of waterproof but hoping for it being worth our while. It is a very stiff product though and I thought it was going to be alot softer.

Like anything else I've ever purchased from L.L. Bean, the quality of this mattress cover is excellent. I love that it fits the mattress so well and has enough fabric to cover the sides of the mattress and plenty to tuck underneath the mattress.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LLBean05 Disappointed with Total Protection Mattress Cover
L. L. Bean is where I have gotten all of my waterproof mattress covers for years. Every bed in my house has one. I needed to get another waterproof mattress cover for my 2 yr old's new bed. So of course I ordered from L. L. Bean. When it arrived, I wasn't too impressed with how the newer one looked as compared to the older version that I have 3 of (the new did not have a quilted top like the older ones do). And when my little one's diaper leaked while he was sleeping, it leaked through the "waterproof" mattress pad to the new mattress (which now I have to clean too). Both side of the "waterproof" pad were wet and so was that spot on the bed. So now I have to return this and find another "waterproof" pad that actually works. Never had this problem with the other 3 older versions that I have had for years! Very disappointed with this newer version of a "waterproof" pad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeanMail Comfortable, waterproof, great fit
I have never had a waterproof mattress pad before, but once or twice over the years I've had drink spills; and I have pets that sleep on the bed. So, when I needed a new cotton pad, I read all the reviews on all the Bean ones, and then I bought this -- knowing I could return it if it had problems. I am impressed. I opened the package and put it on. It was well-made, fit beautifully, and hasn't made any sounds because of the waterproof layer (a big concern). I thought it might be hot, since I've always just had 100% cotton in the past, but it has been fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by simplify Different from before
This is my 4th waterproof mattress cover- ( I have young children who are now all out of the crib) and this is different in a good way. The stretchy skirt is made out of a jersey knit and makes it an absolute breeze to put on to the mattress. I find it to be slightly more "crinkly" than before, and the top isn't quilted as before. It's a more dense material sandwiched around the waterproof layer. The top layer is soft, almost flannel like, and I'm not sure that it wouldn't make it more warm to sleep on. Regardless, I stayed with LL Bean for the guarantee that they provide over buying a cheaper version elsewhere.

I bought this mattress cover because I've been unhappy with all the available mattress pads available at retail stores in the last few years. They all have a bottom layer of polyester that crinkles when you lie down. In simple language they are noisy and hot. I found the LL Bean mattress cover and decided to try it. It was advertised as being 100% cotton. When I got it, I was surprised to read in the packaging that it is waterproof and has an inbedded layer of polyester. No where in the catalog does it talk about it being waterproof or having any polyester. Being made in Germany, I decided to have an open mind and try it. I consider things made in Germany to be of good quality. After trying it I found that it washes beautifully and is not hot to sleep on. The flannel is very thick and does a great job protecting the mattress. However, it does shift a little for my 200 pound husband. The side panels of netting aren't strong enough to hold it firmly in place, but neither are other mattress pads sold today. The huge mattresses sold today of different sizes make that difficult.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bogie4067 Great mattress cover
Great waterproof mattress cover. Thin enough to allow the comfort of the foam mattress to be felt. It is a little stiff but probably will soften after a few washings.
