There are few things less annoying than being woken up in the middle of the night. But if you’re a hot sleeper, you may wake up pretty often in a full sweat. Luckily, bedding companies seem to get it, and many make cooling versions of pillows, sheets, comforters, weighted blankets, mattress pads and even mattresses. However, this Therapedic Polar Nights Ice Cube Mattress Topper is one of the best cooling products for a sweat-free sleep — and it’s finally on sale.
Your mattress retains a lot of body heat, but a mattress topper like this one can convert that heat to make you feel cool. According to the product description at Bed Bath & Beyond, something called “Reactex technology,” which is basically pressure-activated, “pulls in heat from the body and releases cool temperatured energy.” It claims to convert this energy within eight seconds to keep you 10 times cooler.
Therapedic Polar Nights 10x Cooling Ice Cube Mattress Topper, $99.99+ (Orig. $199.99+)
If you’re concerned about comfort — don’t be. It’s a two-inch memory foam and gel fiber topper that feels plush yet supportive.
If you’re wondering, reviews seem mixed on Bed Bath & Beyond’s website. But those who love it really love it.
“An amazing addition to our bed. Living in triple digit heat, the cooling factor makes a huge difference. Super comfortable and cozy,” wrote one reviewer who also called it “luxurious.”
“Even though this may be a bit on the pricey side (I did use a coupon to help), I was curious to see if it could do what it said it would,” wrote another reviewer. “I must say, it’s pretty darn amazing! It isn’t exactly ‘Polar Ice cold,’ but it’s very cool on the skin, especially at first. Extremely comfortable and luxurious too. Glad I took the chance.”
The mattress topper comes in twin, twin XL, full, queen, king and California king sizes and usually starts at $199.99. But right now, you can get it for 50% off. And if you become a Beyond+ member, you can save even more.
If you don’t want to change the feel of your mattress with a thicker topper like this one, there’s also a lighter Therapedic Polar Nights Cooling Mattress Pad and a Therapedic Polar Nights 10x Cooling Personal Underpad. Both are to be placed under your fitted sheet, and both use the same reactive technology as the topper to keep you cool as you sleep. However, they’re also both slightly cheaper than the mattress topper.
If you’ve been feeling hot and needing a cool room and cool sheets for sleep, give the Therapedic Polar Nights Mattress Topper or other products in this line a try.
