Sleep Number ® Total Protection Mattress Pad
Not for us
We purchased this mattress pad because we wanted to get one with the bed and the added protection was a plus. It was not for us. My husband complained that it was making the bed too warm and I found it to take away from the softness of the foam layer of the mattress. It was also "noisy" when we moved, much like a plastic sheet.
We were able to return the mattress pad and exchanged it for the In Balance mattress pad. We are both very happy with this one. My husband sleeps cooler and we have the softness of the mattress as it was in the store.

I purchased my bed & bedding in 2008. When my original SN waterproof pad was washed recently, it lost some of its' waterproofing. When I contacted the company, they sent me this mattress pad as a replacement free of charge. It came much faster than promised. I was a little nervous about it since some of the reviews mentioned it being noisy. I have had NO noise issues. My two year old is often in the bed as well and even with a restless toddler, there has been no noise issue. It fits the bed well, is comfortable, quiet and most important (esp. with toddler), waterproof.
Really appreciated the replacement after 6 1/2 years.

Feel for Yourself
I was really on the fence about purchasing this. I've read every review on this site and was worried about dropping so much on something that didn't seem like a sure bet. I have a King Size P5 (no memory foam# and wanted to protect my investment. I was using a cheap plastic cover but it was noisy and at least one corner had come off every morning. I went to the local store and they let me feel the Total Protection Pad for myself. I was sold right there.
When I put it on the mattress (which was incredibly easy with my wife) I was impressed with how well it fit. After reading some reviews that stated it was too large this was a concern. My bed is set at 45 and 30 and even at those relatively low settings I haven't experienced bunching or anything else adverse.
Extremely comfortable. Several reviews have complained that this cover sleeps hot but I haven't experienced any discomfort and I am a very hot bodied person.
Noise: No unpleasant rustling or scratching of plastic here.
All in all I am very pleased with my purchase. If you have doubts go to your local sleep number store and ask to try the pad for yourself. If you are concerned about bed bugs this is NOT the pad for you. I would recommend the total encasement cover for that worry but if you are looking for a solid cover to protect the mattress from spills, stains, or sweat this is the pad for you.

Hot & Crinkly
Very hot and noisy. It really does feel like you are sleeping on a plastic bag. Wish i had returned mine in 30 days.

Noisy! Noisy! NOISY!!!
I've been a big fan of sleep number beds. My P6 is wonderful, the staff at the store and on the phone are amazing and I brag about them to my friends and family. But this mattress protector....OH THIS MATTRESS PROTECTOR! It's like you're sleeping on a plastic bag! Every review on here is true. If you move a fraction of an inch, it's loud enough to wake you up. A company that is so focused on a good nights sleep has completely missed the mark on this product. It's completely counterproductive. It also retains heat, making it even more uncomfortable.
By the way...it's 3:38am and I woke up due to the extreme noise of this protector. I just yanked it off and decided to write this review. Luckily, I'm still within the 30 return policy. Back to the store I go. My wife just breathed a sigh of relief after taking this product off the bed and is already asleep. Again, the bed...amazing. THIS product...DONT BUY!

Way to warm!
I have to completely agree with other people's reviews. I should have returned the mattress pad cover within the first 30 days. I was sleeping way too hot with this mattress protector on my bed. Ever since I've taken the mattress pad cover off I've slept Wonderfully. I absolutely love my bed.

Wish I had read the reviews
I wish I had read the reviews on this mattress pad. Like others have stated, it is quite loud, slides around on the bed when turning over, and retains heat.
After 2 nights, we took the mattress pad off and put it aside and never thought about it again. I admit I was not diligent in returning it within the 30 day trial period. However, at this point, it is in new condition.
Given the reviews this pad gets, Sleep Number should realize at this point that they have a bad product, discontinue it, and offer some sort of credit.
I hope others don't make the same mistake.

It's unbelievable to me that after all these years no one noticed that the air tubes prohibit the mattress covers and bottom sheets to be tucked in properly and cause a wrinkled bed. The solution is simple and nearly cost free. Put a reinforced U shaped slit in both ends of the cover and sheets. Add velcro strips where the elastic was cut. Do both ends to allow reversing head to foot. I did this and it works great.
