If you want to prolong the life of your mattress then you may consider getting a mattress protector. Just as with all products, they run the full gamut from bargain price up to very costly, premium products.

With a higher-end protector easily setting you back well over $100, it’s understandable that many people will look to make savings and perhaps opt for a lower priced model.

This review will be taking a look at one of the lower priced protectors on the market, to see if it really is the bargain it looks to be.

LUCID Premium Hypoallergenic Mattress Protector Review

LUCID Premium Hypoallergenic 100% Waterproof Mattress Protector-15 Year Warranty-Vinyl Free-Queen

This product is a mattress protector from the company LUCID. It carries the branding of “premium” right there in the item’s name; however, as we mentioned above, it is at the lower end of the price scale for these types of products.

That being said, it does bring a range of interesting and useful features, many of which you simply might not expect to find on a product at this price.

Who is this product for?

First and foremost, this product is designed for people who want to protect their mattress without breaking the bank.

In addition though, as we’ll go on to discuss below, it is also a great option for people who have struggled to find a mattress protector that doesn’t affect their ability to sleep.

What’s included?

One mattress protector, of the “fitted” type. This means it is of similar design to a fitted cheap, with elastic stitched into each corner to ensure a secure fit.

Please note that as a fitted type, it is very important that you purchase the right size for your mattress. A size too small and it simply won’t fit; a size too large and it will slip off and be totally ineffective.

Overview of features

For the price tag, this product brings a lot of useful features. The stand out is the fact that LUCID have decided to not use vinyl at all in this product.

As we alluded to above, some people can struggle to get on with mattress protectors if they find they affect their ability to sleep. The number one complaint is that the protector is simply too noisy. This usually means that a pad of vinyl has been used in the design of the protector. This material can be both uncomfortable to lie on, and it can also make quite loud “crunching” or “crinkling” sound as you roll over in your sleep.

LUCID on the other hand have protected against this by instead employing polyurethane backing for a degree of waterproof protection and placed a layer of soft cotton on top. This dual material construction provides a degree of waterproof protection to the mattress, while also providing a soft surface for additional comfort during the night.

Cotton is also a hypoallergenic material making this protector absolutely fine to use in the bedding of allergy sufferers.

Another useful feature is that the protector itself is machine washable. This is really handy as to truly get the most out of the protector, and also to have a nice, hygienic bed, the protector does need to be washed every few months.

In addition to being machine washable, the fact that the protector is of the Fitted type and also comes with deep corner pockets makes it easy to get on and off the mattress, again helping to make it an easily maintained protector. It also has fully elasticized edges, where some protectors will only have elastic in the corners. This helps the protector to stay on the mattress at all times, even if you are a sleeper who tends to roll around a bit.

Get the most out of it

Really, to get the most out of your protector you just need to keep it clean. Everyone will vary of course, but as a general rule you should look to take it off and wash it (follow the instructions) about once every three months when in general use.

If you have pets that get in bed or the protector is going on a mattress where it may get heavy use, such as a potty-training child, then you may need to look to clean it more often.

Alternatives

The only real downside to this otherwise very impressive product is the lack of vinyl. We understand why it has been replaced in the interests of comfort; however, for true waterproof protection, it really can’t be beaten.

If you’re considering buying this to protect a mattress where there is a high chance of frequent fluid spillages, then you may be better choosing a protector that does use vinyl, such as The Allergy Store’s Vinyl Zippered Mattress Protector.

This is not going to be as comfortable to sleep on, but it is going to provide a higher level of moisture protection.

Conclusion

For the price, this really is an excellent mattress protector. It may not provide the level of protection suitable for high-demand use. Nonetheless, for most people, the combination of decent mattress protection and high comfort will be just right.
