Sleep Number ® In Balance ™ Classic Pillow Protector
Use without pillowcase
I tried using this with a pillowcase over it to keep it cleaner and you really lose the cooling effect. So now I use it without a pillowcase and bought an extra to put on when I throw it in the wash each week. They're pricey, but with owner coupons and sales they're not too bad. Very comfortable on my airfit countour pillow - perfect fit with the gusset.

Having entered that age where sleep is interrupted by hot flashes and night sweats, I took a gamble on this product and I lost. The pillow protector is suppose to disperse heat keeping the head and neck cooler but I find that not to be the function of the product I bought. I will probably return it for a refund.

Worst Purchase...Not Worth My Money
I bought 2 of these for myself and for my husband and we are so disappointed that they do not keep you cool throughout the night like advertised and promised. Our heads feel cool for about 1 minutes until back to the same temperature as before. I don't even have pillow cases over the pillow protectors because it was too hot with them on!?!? As for the pillows we purchased from there they are by far the worst purchase we could of got from Sleep Number. I returned my first pillow because of discomfort and now the second one I have is flat in the front. So much for the guarantee of the foam not going flat. I can't even stand my pillow but I am over the date to return it so I figure why try to return it. It is hard to sleep as it is because of my sleep apnea I shouldn't have to worry about my pillow!?!

A while ago I purchased the In Balance Layer for my mattress. What a comfort difference! Liked it so much I decided to try the pillow cover. I am very pleased, so much that I completed the set with a light blanket. My body temperature fluctuates frequently at night and this system really helps me stay much more comfortable!
Why the overall 4 stars? The fabric is not on both sides of the pillow cover! A definite disappointment. I tend to turn my pillow in my sleep and will wake up when the wrong side is up. Also, I tend to put an arm under my pillow. With the 2 balancing fabrics together (pad and pillow) the arm doesn't overhead - but my head on the other side of the pillow will! With the pillow right side up there is a definite difference and my arm gets hot!
Overall, I love the pillow cover! After a recent hotel stay without my cover I don't want to sleep without it again!

Could be perfect
If this product had outlast material on both sides it would be perfect. Please consider this design? Most pillows require flipping.

Yeah - Gotta Love It!
This product works (in my opinion). I have seen reviews of people complaining that the material is only on one side. I say - so what - if you are not sweating and getting your pillow damp - you don't need to flip your pillow!
This product has worked so well for me that I amd definately investing in the sheets.

Not the best choice
I bought the temperature regulating pillow protector and it does not work as advertised. Hot spots develop in about 3-5 minutes whether I use the temperature regulator side or the other side. No difference in temperature control. I sleep on my back and perspire heavily. I flip the pillow in multiple ways constantly during the night to keep cool. The pillow cover is dripping wet with perspiration night after night. I use a mattress protector to protect the mattress from perspiration stains. The only thing the temperature control cover does is to keep the pillow clean, not worth the $80.
This is the only Select Comfort product I bought that did not live up to expectations.

Not what I expected
I have the In Balance mattress pad pad and we love it so I decided to get the pillow protectors. I was so angry when I got home to find out the in balance material is on one side. I flip my pillow through the night as it changes shape. And when I move the pillow or make the bed, it's irrating to have to figure out which side is which to have the in balance side up.
For the price, they should have included it on both sides. Very disappointed.
