I've been sleeping on this pillow for about one month. It took a few days to get used to the combination of gel fiber on one side and memory foam on the other, but NOW....it is terrific...I used to wake up with kinks in my neck or sore shoulders, but NO MORE! I sleep more soundly and I can adjust how I want to use the pillow by sleeping on the memory foam side or the gel fiber side....one side has a little more support, the other side a little softer...you can even take out the memory foam side or the gel fiber side to get totally different pillow uses. It really has a nice striped cover on it and the gusseted sides give the pillow a real nice height...I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this pillow...it is much different then anything I've ever slept on before, but WOW what a difference it makes.....VERY HAPPY!
I was looking for high density memory foam pillow. This product does not specify the memory foam density but I took a chance since it has both the foam & gel. It turns out the foam is softer than I hoped and the gel side is even softer. It gives a rich medium softness overall (no stress point like standard pillows) yet has some firm support (as oppose to downfill pillow which has no support). This product is good for someone looking for medium support. My wife does not impress with the price. I am still looking for high density memory foam pillow.
First of all these are larger than described. The actual size is 28x20x5. I believe that makes them a queen size pillow, not standard.
I was pleased that they were larger than described, but it means they don't fit a standard pillowcase. I will need to order larger sized pillowcases because of the thickness and the extra length. I like my pillows to slide easily in the case and these have to be forced by hand in the case, which means the density increases because they are so tightly placed in the case. I love the fact that they can be reversed based on the kind of support needed. The memory foam side is the firmer side, and the gel foam fiber is softer. It is like getting two pillows in one. Either way, it is a great pillow and well worth the cost.
A good solution for my husband, who gets too warm lying against memory foam, but needs some firmness that polyester fiber can't provide. Pillow needs vary by a person's size, too, so, for comparison, my husband is 5'9" with fairly wide shoulders. A bigger guy might need a thicker pillow.
Ordered two pillow with similar description, thickness and memory foam density. Both were expected to be 5" thick and firm. This pillow was not as described, it was not firm or thick, but soft and thin. The other pillow we ordered, Bodipedic, was great! Returning this and ordering another Bodipedic.
So be aware, this is definitely a hybrid pillow. One side is traditional fiberfill, the other is memory foam. If you are just transitioning over from a traditional pillow, this is great (which is why I bought it for my husband).... however, I already had a nice memory foam pillow so i didn't like this one as much. The memory foam side is nice, but more structured than most memory foam pillows. He loves it though, so it's definitely right for some people, just not me.
