Doesn't really improve the "coolness" factor significantly, but I like the flatness softness of the pillow. It does smell like it came straight from the factory though, so you may want to air it out a little bit prior to 1st use. Overall, it's a good product for the price you're paying (2 pillows!)
2/23/10 My husband and I, seniors, are very pleased with this purchase, our very first memory foam pillows. With the exceptional thoroughness of the Overstock Customer Service agent providing helpful info, we finished checking almost all the considerable number of the memory foam pillows offered by Overstock and decided on these two, based on weight (density) , the novelty of the anti-snore perforations, and the incredible low price. Having read the reviews with common objections to the strong odor, we aired ours out as soon as they arrived for about 10 days, resulting in absolutely no odor--I am very allergic. The pillow has two "humps," the lower being standard rise, we would suppose, and the higher I used for migraine, and it actually served to give added relief to my neck (recent fall) and back. From sofabeds to memory foam pillows, we can honestly give Overstock a "10." God bless.
These pillows are an excellent value for the money. They are good quality, very comfortable and pack well for traveling. I bought two, cut them down to a smaller size for travel and took them on a recent cruise. Wonderful!! I'm ordering two more to have here at home.
When reading reviews, you will do well to remember that people tend to over or under rate the product. The first few nights on the low profile and somewhat short pillow were an adjustment period. I have chronic neck pain and have had quite some trouble getting the zzz's in of late. But it is indeed a cool, conforming pillow that was well worth he money and has resolved my sleepless nights. So no regrets here. In summary - it is a low profile and not very long. Also it is soft and cool which makes it a very comfortable pillow.
I ordered the pillows because I have sleep apnea and use a "CPAP". The pillow makes the "CPAP" mask much easier to sleep with. The only draw back was at the beginning the pillow had a strong chemical smell. After about a week, the smell went away.
