I live in Arizona which can get pretty hot in the summers, lately the daily highs have been in the 102-112 degree range and nights can be in the 82-98 degree range which can make for some hot nights as well. We keep our A/C and fan on during the night but sometimes it can still be uncomfortable because you can easily become overheated. A company called Cooling Mattress is helping us fight the night time and even day time heat while laying in bed using their Feel Cooler mattress pad. What is a Feel Cooler mattress pad? Here is a little info from their website: "The Feel Cooler® Cooling mattress pad are made with
Temperature regulating technology. They are made to keep you just right
in body temperature, so if you sleep to warm then they will absorb heat
and help you stay cool. They are perfect for couples that are sleeping
different, if your spouse is sleeping too hot and you are too cold then
the technology will help you both regulate your body temperature so you
both sleep just right!".
I received a Feel Cooler DUO Pad to use and review, and I have to admit I love it! I originally thought that the mattress pad would be like a mattress topper and would just laying under a fitted sheet to hold it to the bed so I was very happy to see this had a fitted skirt around it to keep it on the bed. I put the pad on the bed once I arrived home from work and put our pillows and blankets where they normally go, and for those wondering yes the Finding Nemo and Stitch pillows are mine the blue pillow belongs to my fiance. When it was time for bed I went to lay down on the Feel Cooler DUO Pad for the first time and right away I could tell the bed was a lot cooler than it normally was, laying down on it I felt as if the heat was melting from my body and was absorbed into the pad.
I slept pretty well on the mattress pad, the pad itself is soft and feels nice on the skin the material isn't scratchy, slippery or irritating. My fiance slept better on this mattress then he would have without it, he wakes up often from being too hot I can't even count the nights he has gotten up to re-adjust into a cooler position or spot on the bed. He said he felt like he tossed and turned 40% less than normal and had a deeper sleep which left him feeling rejuvenated. I've found myself wondering into my room when I am reading or playing my Nintendo DS just so I can lay on this mattress pad while doing so. We haven't had any issues with this mattress pad slipping off the bed or needing to be re-adjusted the fitted skirt around the pad fits perfectly. I find myself falling asleep faster now and getting a better nights sleep, I completely love this mattress and think that everyone who lives in a hot climate needs one. Cooling Mattress offers mattress pads, sheets, pillows, and blankets that are designed to keep you cooler and dryer while sleeping. The Feel Cooler DUO Pad retails for $199.99 and they do ship world wide.
