I use this pillow on top of a firmer pillow and it has given me the best night's sleep I've had in a long time. I would recommend it to every one to use as a second pillow, or if you like a squishy pillow, a first one. I sleep on my side and it elevates me to the right angle and seems to have solved my leg cramp situation by being elevated properly.
It was stated when purchased it was a down Gel-Filled i dont believe there is any Gel in it and that was my main reason for this purchase was for the Gel because i am a person that has going through hot flashes and my head is still hot with these pillows i was looking for Gel and thought with the down it would make me comfortable to sleep but this is not the case. I would not recommend to a friend if they were looking for a Gel- Filled as stated
The pillow igets hot when sleeping on it for less than an hour. Also The tag on the pillow makes no mention of gel filled. Also the Plastic wrap the pillow came in says made in USA. The tag on the pillow says Cotton Cover made in USA the Fill is made in China. Very poor
These pillows are softer than was expected. When I think of gel I think of a slightly firm material that conforms to your body; instead I got some pretty soft pillows. Even though I didn't get what I expected, I am very satisfied. I sink into the center of the pillow while having enough support around my neck and head. They always retain their shape and stay cool.
I've always loved down pillows, but they seem to get flat very quickly, and flat is not a comfortable sleep position. I thought I'd give these a try, because the price was right and Overstock has a great return policy. I will not be returning them. They are the right size (standard pillow) and they are as comfortable as down but they don't flatten easily. There was no smell about them, and they puff back up easily. I recommend these to down lovers and to foam lovers looking for a more comfortable night's sleep. I LOVE these pillows! Thank you, Overstock!
I have a gel top mattress topper and there is no question that gel is through out the topper, I was under the impression that these "gel-filled" pillows would almost feel the same as my gel filled topper. It didn't. It's just a more denser down alternative pillow. Can't tell that there is supposed to be a gel like substance in the pillow to help with the support I was looking for, which is also pretty crappy. I would have returned these but I hate dealing with returns and the cost of shipping the item back. These are now just expensive decorative guest pillows.
I really like this pillow: I'm a side and stomach sleeper and the pillow molds as I need it to throughout the night. It has a deep downy feel to it. My husband finds it more like an average pillow (mostly sleeps on his back, sometimes on his side), and to him it gets warm, much like a standard pillow.
