When I took it out of the plastic cover, it smelled like mildew, so I put it in the dryer on air, thinking it would take the smell out, but to no avail. When I slept on it, it was hotter than my other pillow. I'm very disapointed in this pillow., I paid $65.00 for it, & it's not worth it.
Pillow received was 19 1/2 inches long, not 22 as stated in the description. It is VERY small. While it does stay cooler than your average pillow for longer, it will still warm up. Given the small width, you cannot "move to the other side" of the pillow for more coolness. Gel is only on one side, so you cannot flip the pillow over. Furthermore, if you add a zippered pillow cover under your pillow case, it is more difficult to enjoy the cool. This was a great idea, but fell very short, in my estimation. Returned it!
I had a whiplash after a car accident more than ten years ago. I have been looking for a pillow that will support my neck even when I am sleeping. I got it yesterday and my first night using it was incredible. This pillow is an answered prayer!
