I was given a set of Bedgear Dri-Tec sheets for review this past winter. I have been using them occasionally on mattresses that I review. These sheets have a super soft, silky feel and are extremely breathable. They have the same feel as the newer athletic wear on the market. I put them in the performance sheets category.
You can purchase Bedgear sheets direct from their website at bedgear.com. They have multiple colors and sizes to choose from. And, while you’re there, check out their pillows. Bedgear has some of the most innovative pillows on the market. Bedgear continues to innovate and branch out in new directions, I expect to see more good products from them in the near future.
The Dri-Tec sheets will arrive in a box like this:
Since this is a synthetic fabric, thread counts and weave really don’t apply here. Instead, it’s all about the feel. I have had these sheets for a few months and have washed them multiple times and they hold up very well. The advantage here is that they feel just as soft right out of the box as they will 10 washes later. With natural fibers such as cotton and especially linen, you need to wash at least 2 or 3 times before you break them in.
According to the Bedgear site, the advantages of these sheets are as follows:
DRI-TEC® 5.0 FABRIC SURFACE – Our performance material wicks away heat and moisture to help you sleep cool and dry. Reducing heat trapped next to your body creates a restful night.
AIR-X® VENTILATED PANELS – Our 3D structure keeps air flowing, moving heat away from your body while maintaining ambient temperatures.
MOTION TRANSFER REDUCTION – You won’t feel your partner turning over with our sheets as you do with stiff cotton fabric.
FEATHER-WEIGHT FEEL – Soft drape that won’t cling to your body
SECURE FIT & GRIP – The full-banded elastic Powerband® ensure a secure FIT & GRIP that holds tight on all mattress heights, with no baggy sides or bunching! Perfect for power bases!
WRINKLE & ODOR RESISTANT
EASY CARE – Machine wash in cold water on gentle cycle. Tumble dry on low heat or air dry. These sheets are quick-dry and can be used with high efficiency washers and dryers.
Here’s a video that illustrates how the sheets work:
What I especially like about these sheets is the heavy duty fitted sheet band that will prevent your sheets from coming loose on the mattress. I have an adjustable bed and having my fitted sheet come undone can be an issue if the banding is not sufficient.
The stretch you see on the sheet is the material along the side of the sheet. The top of the sheet is not as stretchy.
Here’s a close up the sheets the bottom of the photo is the air ventilated panels.
I thoroughly enjoy these sheets. I think people who tend to sleep hot would find them especially useful. Although I usually have cotton sheets on my mattress, in the summer months I tend to look at other materials to keep my cool and these sheets fit the bill. Year round I find that the pillow cases that come with the set are one of my favorites as they help keep my head cool on the pillow and just feel nice against your face.
