Eugene Alletto, Quarterback/Founder and CEO of Bedgear®, pioneered the Performance Bedding category in 2009 when he learned that his son wasn’t sleeping well due to bedding-related allergies. He was advised to use a mattress protector to keep away dust. At that time, the only products available were at medical supply chains and made from vinyl, which caused his son to sweat and overheat, disrupting his sleep. Recognizing a need in the marketplace for improved bedding products, Eugene utilized his manufacturing resources to develop performance fabric technology.
Experts at innovation, we have mastered advanced textile fabrication techniques to engineer top-of-the-line sleep essentials that deliver the clean, cool, fresh environment your body needs to regenerate and recover while you sleep. The success of bedgear is not built solely upon heat and moisture-wicking performance products, but also upon being innovative and willing to take risks when it comes to developing new products to deliver superior sleep quality to enhance your active lifestyle. Creating differentiated products built on our patent-pending sales process to fit your sleep position and body frame, bedgear is redefining the way people look at sleep.
Bedgear is the premier producer of Performance Bedding essentials, with multiple distribution facilities in the US and a state-of the art factory in China. Bedgear is currently sold in over 4,000 locations including the nation’s top 100 specialty bedding retailers, major regional mattress chains and independent stores in the U.S, Canada and Pacific Rim.
In our creation of performance bedding and building recognition of sleep as an activity, we aspire to innovate products and processes that are personalized and inspirational.
Our mission is to help you achieve more each day by providing you with maximum recovery at night. Our collection of personalized performance pillows, mattress protectors, sheets, blankets, lounge and travel accessories utilize heat- and moisture-wicking fabric technologies, including Dri-Tec®, Ver-Tex® and Air-X® ventilation system. With these innovations, bedgear enhances your ability to temperature regulate at night, and to sleep more comfortably, to fuel all your daily activities.
You can't cheat sleep - but you can get more recovery out of the time you spend in bed!
Performance Bedding was invented to define sleep essentials that provide you with more recovery at night. To ensure performance bedding remains a specific category and not just a commonly used term, we have set out to measure each product in the bedgear family based on the tangible metrics of evaluate air flow, heat dissipation or insulation, moisture transfer, flexibility and fit. From this set of standards, we have created what we call a Performance Base Rating (PBR) for each product in, as well as trademarked the term "CFM" in the bedding class of goods. CFM, or cubic feet per minute, is derived from the ASTM (Association for Standards in Textile Manufacturing) test for measuring the air that passes through a fabric. At bedgear, we have established that a minimum of 100 CFM must apply before a product can be considered "performance," and this airflow measurement is then further assigned to tiers of performance up to 5, or a completely ventilated fabric that allows 100% air pass through.
Bedgear owns several utility patents, design patents and a family of "performance" trademarks by which we indicate and define performance products for the bedding industry. We protect these patents and marks to ensure the category of performance bedding always maintains its vision and focus on products that provide functional benefits for improved recovery at night, and doesn't become commoditized with lookalike merchandise.
