I've had these pillows for about a month in a complete bed overhaul....going from comfy to ULTRA COMFY..... suffice to say I am very impressed by the quality of these pillows.....they come with a protective cover and they are very full. They don't flatten out when you lay on them and conform to around your head giving you nice loft. As with anything goose down you have to air them out for a day from the box but these are some of the best pillows available. I coupled these with 1000-1200tc Egyptian Cotton Sheets/Pillowcases, and even nicer pillows (1000tc ones here on Overstock). Suffice to say......My bed has no equal. Comfort to the Maximum.
