After reading all the reviews good and bad I decided to splurge. Items like pillows are very personal and what one feels is perfect another may totally dislike. My criteria was I wanted a down/feather pillow, very firm (not fluffy), queen size and made (in whole or part) in the USA. I have been using the pillows for a couple months, and I am very satisfied.
I picked up these pillows (a set of 4) for $89.99 to replace the last down feather pilliows we had for over 6 years. The pillows are very high quality and are very dense down pillows. But buyer beware these pilliows are VERY FIRM and HARD and even after 6 months have hardly softened up at all. If you want a fluffy soft pillow run and find something else. If you like a firm to extra firm pillow then you have found your pillow.
I cannot say if it is good or not, I would be unfair....for what I was looking for it was not the perfect match. But it is very high quality, good size and the price is excellent for this quality product. Pillows are so personal that I could not say if I would recommend, maybe for another customer it would be perfect. I think that anyway it is worth to try it.
This are a nice firm feather pillow. Bought for the guest room at my mother-in-laws room (our room) . Love this pillow just hope they aren't being discontinued because I have been looking for several months & they are always out of stock :(
I've had these pillows for about a month, and I really like them. They fill up a queen/standard sham fully (in fact it was snug on a few of mine that shrunk - don't worry, still within 'fit' range though) and are comfortable. They are very stiff and full first out of the bag (let them air out a bit too, the down is fragrant at first but this is normal based on other down products I've bought), but after a week or two they are softer. If you're looking for a super firm pillow, be warned these soften up to medium firmness. I could sleep on my back or stomach comfortably after breaking them in for a couple weeks. Also, they fluff back up to their full loft, so my bed always looks nice and put together.
I had high hopes for these as with a down comforter I quess its the feathers but they go flat. MY HUBBY AND I both loved them at first but after sleeping on them they go flat in the middle and then you have fluff just sitting on both sides .I'm a side sleeper and my shoulders are extremely sore in the morning..I had to breakout the old $20 pillows again...and that's sad because these weren't cheap.
Struggled with picking out new pillows for my bedroom. I am a goose down girl so I read each review searching for the best value. For the price of these pillows, they have met my expectations. They do have a bit of a smell with them but often new products give off a different scent which will dissipate. The pillows are very firm and I know they will soften over time like my last ones. I ordered the queen size and they completely fill my shams/pillow cases. I am a happy camper and so are my dogs!
