I flipflop between this and the side sleeper pillow to change it up a little bit. This one is nice I just wish it was a tiny bit thicker. The cooling aspect is nice though -- I can most certainly tell a difference from a regular pillow.
This pillow is so comfortable. It is the right thickness and firm/soft combination for the way I sleep. The pillow maintains mild coolness and does not heat up. It stays comfortable and helps me stay asleep. I really like the texture of the gel foam.
If you find yourself waking up at night because the heat build-up causes your pillow to become uncomfortable you need this pillow. After unpacking and airing the pillow for the 24 hours that is recommended you will never sleep without it. No more flipping the pillow to find that cool spot, just sleep away in comfort.
This pillow is listed as medium-soft and that is really what it is. I have this and another very soft memory foam and I switch between them depending on how I feel. This one stays cool (important for me) and is not so soft that it is squishy. It seemed quite firm at the outset but with some time, it has softened so that it is perfect. It is a great balance between too firm and too plushy, so if that is what you want, you have found I here! I love mine!
After a long search for good King sized pillows, I bit the bullet and spent the money on these, and I'm so glad I did! They hold their shape over time, don't overheat, and mold to the shape of your head while still giving support. I'd definitely recommend these!!
The fact is that this pillow has never been used. It is simply taking up space in my closet. The odor still remains and I purchased it long ago. It weighs about ten times the weight of the average pillow and actually has a stain as if some of the gel or something leaked from it. I kept hoping that eventually the odor would dissipate, but finally gave up and threw it in the closet. There it sits. VERY DISAPPOINTED that I threw my money away on this pillow.
I have a similar pillow that I ordered feom Overstock, which I LOVE~!! So, I figured my husband was overdue for a new pillow, and he is impossible to please, believe me. I took a shot. He prefers a thinner pillow, and likes a cool pillow, so I searched & searched, as there are so many options. I dis not want a shredded foam pillow. And unlike mine which is a bit firmer and thicker & has only one side with cool gel, this one is gel infused, so it's cool all around. I can't believe it , I haven't removed his other pillows yet. He is using just the new one and loves it~!!! Wahoo~!! He is more rested, not feeling the usual neck & upper back & shoulder pain so much. I could not be HAPPIER~!!! The first gift I have bought him in what seems like forever that he TRULY likes~!! It's just amazing to me. Thank You Overstock for making it that simple~!!
