A traditional Chinese sleeping mat for keeping cool and comfortable on warm nights in spring, summer, and fall. Handcrafted from Carbonized Natural Bamboo, these mats feature a unique coloring due to the natural materials. The bamboo is waxed to prevent mildew during sea transport and will have a slight odor that goes away with a cleaning, use a warm & wet towel to wipe the mat down, then air dry, do this before use. *Pillow Shams/Cases NOT Included*

Some people sleep directly on the bamboo. I slipped mine between the mattress and the fitted sheet. When sleeping on my back, it's completely comfortable. When I roll to my side, I am slightly aware of the rigidity of the bamboo under my shoulder and hip. If you need to sink into a pillowy soft mattress, you probably won't like the bamboo mat.
Some reviewers noticed an odor. I have a very sensitive nose and notice no odor at all, even the first night I used it.
I am completely satisfied with this item!
So... why the 2 stars?
1) It stinks. The bamboo beads are strung between a few strips of plastic (for stability). At first we thought the smell might be offgassing plastic. The smell stuck around even after airing out on our balcony in the sun for a few days. I (very ambitiously) thought about taking it apart and replacing the plastic strips with ribbons to get rid of the smell. After dismantling part of the mat, it became apparent that the smell came from the tiles themselves--maybe it's the finish they used? We didn't enjoy turning over in the night only to be assaulted by a waft of chemical scented air. In the end, that was the death knell and we ended up tossing the whole thing. The smell might be harmless, but we just weren't comfortable spending hours each night on something that smelled chemically. (To be fair, it's not like we ever got headaches, and it was never overpowering. The smell was strongest when you got a gust of air that had been trapped under the blankets, etc.) Maybe we should have waited a month or two to see if the smell faded, but my boyfriend immediately vetoed that idea.
2) It is dirty. The sheet we had underneath the mat was covered with debris. The fabric backing the mat is mesh. As I discovered when dismantling a few rows of beads, the manufacturer apparently attempted to glue the beads to the mesh backing. (Although the layers were definitely already unstuck from each other when I first inboxed it). The dried glue was rubbing off the backs of the tiles and falling through the mesh onto our bed. If the manufacturer reads this comment... I would recommend forgoing the glue! It's totally functional without the messy addition. Also, there's really no way to proactively clean up the backs of the tiles without undoing a seam and scrubbing :(
First: I really enjoy the feel and heft of this mat. I've never used a sleeping mat, but it's a pretty product. Don't run your hands over it, though -- it's either splintery or pinchy (probably pinchy). I only ever experienced that when first unpacking it and running my hands over the surface quickly. I don't do that now, and Haven't had any other pinches.
Second of all: I don't categorically recommend this as a "mattress firming" solution unless you have weird bedding constraints. I've ended up with this somewhat-working configuration:
TOP OF BED:--------------------
Qbedding sleeping mat, upside-down (so the wood faces the plastic waterproof bed cover and the fabric top faces up and holds the fitted bed sheet in place (it slides around on top of the wood)).
waterproof bed cover, flipped inside-out so the sticky plastic-y side grips the QBedding sleeping mat wood.
stiff 3 inch foam mattress topper
fitted bed sheet (kind of using this as a bed skirt).
BOTTOM OF BED:--------------
Is this useful for anyone out there? Hope so! :-D
If it works for you, however, it comes in a carry case which is convenient when packing it away or of course, traveling with it.
It has a lingering smell, as others have noted, but that eventually goes away. I don't know what people are doing that makes the mat slide off the bed (wrong size, perhaps? using it like a quilt?), as this works just fine for me. I put it on top of the fitted sheet, lie on the mat, pull the normal sheet over myself, and enjoy a cool, restful sleep.
NOTE: it pulls the hair on my hubby's legs so I put it under the fitted sheet and it's great. still feel the cool. isn't uncomfortable at all.

But I like the mat, as I see my stiff neck issue is getting better.
