We had used "gel" pillows at a relative's home in Calif. and had looked all over our area for them. When I found them online at Overstocked.com, I quickly ordered them. I was ordering another item when I happen to see that they were available. They are very comfortable and seem to cradle your head and fit my sleeping pattern, as I sleep mostly on my side.. I can "scrunch" it to fit exactly how I want it. The pillows don't seem to get "hard" spots that so many other pillows get. My relative said that she had her pillows for several years and they are still in great condition. I told my sister about them in Florida. She said that she found some back there and she likes them also. My nephew in California also uses them. They aren't easy to find in the department stores, so it was good to find them at Overstock.com.
