This bed pad provided the coolest and most comfortable night’s rest, earning it The Best rating from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute. Using a cooling gel to absorb body heat, The Best pad’s surface temperature rose only 1° F during eight hours of testing in an independent laboratory, while lesser pads became more than 40% hotter. Experts also criticized inferior models for being so narrow that they didn’t cover the full width of a sleeper’s back. In contrast, The Best Cooling Bed Pad was lauded for its generous size that spans the full width of a sleeper’s body, with room to spare in the event of rolling over. The Best Pad requires no refrigeration or electricity, its non-slip texture prevents shifting whether placed above or below sheets, and its seamless gel filling doesn’t emit disruptive “popping” sounds when laid upon like lesser pads. The pad’s thin yet firm gel provides a comfortable sleeping surface and its 100% cotton fabric cover feels as soft against the skin as a bed sheet. Spot clean.

I was disappointed in this product. It started out cold, not cool and it did absorb body heat so that by the middle of the night I was taking it off of the bed. I haven't put it back on yet. This is the first time I purchased a HS that did not live up to its online/catalog description.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Unfortunately, had to return this product.
from Washington, DC
The upstairs in my home is always warm in the summertime while the downstairs is cold. I thought this would alleviate turning the air conditioning down more at night. It was great when I first laid down on it and kept me very cool. However, in just a short period of time, I was just as hot as if I wasn't using this product. I had great hopes, but it just didn't deliver.

I purchased a cooling pad from another company several years ago. Unfortunately it heated up so quickly that it was pretty worthless. This experience made me hesitant to try another cooling pad, but with summer coming, I decided to give it a try. All I can say is WOW, what a difference. This product is vastly different than the previous one I had owned. It is more comfortable to lay on and the cooling properties last far longer keeping me cool late into the night. I actually wake up without my back feeling hot and sticky. I would recommend this to anyone who sleeps hot.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
The pad does help keep from getting too hot on the side on the mattress.
Unsatisfactory feeling when in use

Too cold and not good to sleep on
Mostly good news!!
from Escondido, California
The current version is far better than the original version. Folds flatten out and the surface doesn't wrinkle. Excess body heat that causes a feeling of burning sheets is mitigated and sleep comes much easier. Hwever, once the pad is heated, the heat is retained for some time. The downside is that one must roll over to find a new spot to continue to cool. The upside is that after getting up later on a cool night, one can return to a warm spot on the pad.

A Good Idea, But Not Exactly What I Need

For some time I have been looking for a relatively inexpensive cover to cool my mattress at night. Most of those currently available are too expensive and require some assembly. Your cooling pad seemed to be the answer to my search, however, the design made it difficult to sleep on and, although it was cool at first, it did not remain so.

The product is very useful for those with night sweats. I sleep on it and I wake up refreshed and dry.
Was as represented
Had to return it as it was too heavy for me to manage and not soft enough to sleep on but was cool as advertised so was sorry to see it go!
