I bought this pillow in King Size Firm version, which was the correct choice, considering that natural material pillows rating is never the same as polyester filled ones. This item is made in USA from 88% duck feather and 12 % down stuffed inside 100% Chinese cotton, making finished size 20X36 inches. After my last feather/down pillow quit, I really tried for a few days couple of those polyester plastic stuffed products called also ¿pillow¿, and result was mild headache every day in the morning. Type of head support in bed is very personal preference, and since I am used to the traditional Old World bedding the logical choice was to get normal pillow. I could not find decent product for less, until I found that Overstock is selling many good quality pillows as well. This Personal Choice 300 is soft yet it can be shaped, and I noticed that Firm version gives it enough support without going flat, with no wrap-around effect or overheating. I was a bit skeptical about that 120 bucks retail price on it, until I actually had a chance to see it in person. Also no smell, no sticking out feathers and raised gusset with darker rim finish creates nice luxurious look. Consider the ambient temperature of your bedroom: this is 88/12 combination for warmer climate or for summer, which means that if you need fuller shape, it needs to be 60/40 more or less proportion of feather to down. When is says that Firm King is filled with 54 ounces, consider that it is feather/down combined weight, not the capacity. This is very good product if you are looking for traditional natural pillow: just be certain to pick the correct type matching your preference.
I like a pillow with substance so ordered two of these in a Firm King. My last two pillow were of another name brand which somehow managed to 'leak' feathers with every pillowcase change so I got in the habit of double pillowcasing (is that a word?) each one which solved that problem. These, however, have a much heavier and sturdier cover which prevents feather leakage in the first place.As an added bonus, for some reason they don't get as hot as other pillows which may have something to do with the dual core and gusseted construction. The firmness is just right - not like you're sleeping on a rock, mind you, but rather semi soft on the outside but firm in the middle. In any case and as is obvious in my review, I'm more than satisfied with the overall performance of these pillows. Hopefully you will be too.
After having the same feather pillow for years, i decided to upgrade. I scoured every review of every pillow on Overstock and was impressed with the feed back on these so I went for it. I am not one to spend more then $10 on a pillow, so I had very high expectations. Boy, was I pleased as punch!! Your typical feather construction, no matter how high the thread count, always leaks feathers and you get an occasion poke or two. Well, this is no typical feather pillow! I have had them for a year now and have not found a single rouge feather nor have i been poked once. They are as firm yet full and fluffy as the day they arrived. They are almost too full as it is a bit difficult to get them in an out of a pillow case, but it is a fair trade. The box construction is perfect and gives the perfect support and hight to nestle nicely around the back of your neck. I am ordering another set to use on the spare bed. These pillows were constructed so well, we will have them for many years.

This is a very good pillow that I would recommend with the following caveats: 1. Stnd/Queen size is only standard. Even the tag on the pillow says STND. 2. I like a firm pillow and the firm offered here is barely so.Other than these points, it's a great value.
Used pillows for less than 3 weeks and one busted open ejecting feathers everywhere. The seams were poorly sewn. Poor craftsmanship. I had to throw one away since I had not saved the box, etc. For the price, definitely not worth the money.
I've had these pillows for about 4-5 years now and they'd been great. However a few months ago they started to tear at the seams and now feathers are getting everywhere. So good, while they last, but they won't last exceptionally long.
This was my husband's favorite until he tried the tommy bahama 700 fill pillow. It's a little less firm than that, so not as helpful in preventing neck pain for side sleepers with broad shoulders. Maybe a better choice for smaller framed side sleepers.
