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.

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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Relief from Heat

To prevent overheating during sleep
A Good Idea, But Not Exactly What I Need
By To Warm for Comfort

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!
The Best Cooling Bed Pad?
from Austin, Texas
I doubt there is a "best" cooling bed pad out there. This one works, until it doesn't. If you sleep alone you can move to the other side of the pad when you wake up and find it's become hot from your body heat. That works okay, but what I most did not like about it was the feeling of sleeping on a board, albeit a soft board. And I don't understand why it doesn't cover the entire width of the bed.
It cools me down as I crawl into bed at night. And in the middle of the night, it is warm where I have been sleeping and that is what I want then.
By Happy Camper

I was very excited when I opened the box and put the pad on the bed. It was immediately cool. But, unfortuantely, during the night it was no longer cool, but was extremely warm. I was so disappointed. I would move to the extreme sides where it was still cool. I tried it on top of the sheets and then below the sheet. It didn't matter, it still got really warm. But it starts off really cool and feels wonderful while it lasts.
Great for menopause!!
from Alberta, Canada
I bought the largest size. It works great to cool the core body temperature quickly and efficiently. The gel pad works especially good for afternoon naps, because the gel stays cool for a long time. At night I wake several times, and the gel under me does get quite warm, but I just roll over 6" or so and feel the cool gel again. I've positioned the gel pad lengthways so my entire body is on it. This is why I would like a larger/wider pad so I can roll over for cool gel again. But now I see in the picture it perhaps should be layed the other way so just the top of my body is on it, and I can roll over anywhere I want and get cold gel. (May try that but I love my legs cool too). The other thing is that it is quite firm, my son did not like it, but it is well worth the slight firmness for the results achieved. I have been using it just on top of the bottom sheet, I may try it under the sheet for more softness. With our exceptionally warm summer this year, and no air conditioning in our home, I was having trouble falling and staying asleep, but not now. This gel pad is a lifesaver. I may have to purchase a second one to lay beside it. I'm waiting for my gel pillow to come and I'll be in heaven.
