I bought these pillows because I had a 10 year old one of this brand & loved it. They are well made and in a good strong cover. None of the allergy or feather issues occur with these down alternative pillows. Overstock's price was great, the pillows are washable & I was hoping the pillows would hold up well as my older one has. I have slept on a new one of them since the day they arrived. It appears as good as my old one. I am very happy.
