Overall

The biggest difference between these two mattress protectors is that the Sleep Tite protector can fit mattresses up to 22-inches thick while Luna fits up to 18-inches. Otherwise, these two protectors are incredibly similar (even in price) and it is difficult to distinguish between them.

Both protectors were a little too big for my 10-inch thick Casper mattress, and there was excess material around the edges that caused some shifting and some slight noise on my mattress.

I think the saving grace for the Sleep Tite protector – and what caused me to rate it slightly higher than Luna – is the “Universal Fit” element that Malouf offers. The elastic gripped my mattress and held the protector as closely to my mattress as possible, making it a more ideal sleeping experience.

I felt less overall shifting and noise (and generally just noticed the protector less often) with the Sleep Tite than the Luna protector, which is why I made it my personal choice.

That being said, depending on what type/size mattress a person might have, the Luna could also potentially be a great fit.

Both mattress protectors are sold on sites that offer them at discounted prices (those prices change frequently so keep that in mind), so people people should check those out to get the best price available.
