For people who are in the market for a thin, virtually noiseless and waterproof fitted mattress protectors under $100 will find both the SafeRest and the Linenspa protectors to be great options.
I preferred the 100% polyester material over the cotton terry of the SafeRest. I wasn’t able to feel it under my sheets and the stronger elastic of the Linenspa protector held the protector to my mattress snugly, which generated left shift and noise than the SafeRest protector.
Both protectors are easy to care for and come with detailed instructions (that are relatively the same). Avoid drying the protector on a high heat so it retains its waterproof properties.
The Linenspa protector is slightly more expensive than SafeRest, but both can be found heavily discounted on retail sites like Amazon.
