Sleep Number ® Total Protection Mattress Pad for Memory Foam
Glad we purchased!
Having slept on a memory-foam-topped bed before, we understood the importance of having a "thin" pad between the body and the mattress so that the Memory Foam part of the mattress functions properly. Therefore, we didn't buy this mattress pad for comfort but rather protection. I found that it sufficiently protects from an accidental spill that is cleaned up right away, but because it has breathability, I'm not sure it could protect the mattress if the spill were allowed to sit for very long. Its water-proof barrier can also reflect heat back onto you while you sleep, but I personally like that because it helps keep me warm without having to use a lot of heavy blankets. For those like my husband who tend to overheat when they sleep, using the pad called "In Balance" on top of this one may provide the best solution. We have the new split-bed so on my husband's side we use both pads. My husband said the In Balance pad does an "amazing job" at keeping him cooler at night, so for that reason alone he feels it was worth the price we paid. In my opinion, the price of all the Sleep Number products are obscenely expensive for what you appear to get, and that includes the beds themselves. However, I have not been able to find their equivalence anywhere else so we paid the price to get what we wanted. So far we have not been disappointed in the beds or the pads we have purchased. I would highly recommend each of them to anyone who is considering their purchase.

Does not provide protection at all
I bought this product because it purported to be waterproof. It is not. I would not purchase this product again and will be asking for a refund. Very disappointed.

Comfort was better at first but after a few months it remembers to stay flat so you sleep in a hole.

Useless waste of money
The salesman urged me to buy this item, insisting it would keep be cooler on my new i 10 bed. It is totally useless. Keep me cool when I sleep? I wake up every morning either half soaked from perspiration or near that. I'd try and find something else, but I've spent so much money on Sleep Number products I can't afford any more.

We have the i8 bed, not a memory foam. We got this pad only because the sales associate said she recommends it for every bed. But it slides around too easily on our bed. It's also a bit loud. The only way I know to describe it is it sounds like the plastic of a baby's or toddlers waterproof mattress pad, though it's very thin. I don't feel too warm with it since were also using the Inbalance sheets, but I still toss and turn so noise bothers me.

I only purchased this because the salesperson said we needed it to protect the memory foam... Bad idea! It makes me so sweaty and I have to sleep with the least layers of clothing as possible. It's just too uncomfortable. I understand it has a purpose, but it's not a product I'm enjoying too well.
