The travel case that the pillow fits into is a good idea, and the pillow does indeed squish into ...
on July 28, 2015
I feel completely cheated by this product. The dimensions given in the product description (and also written on the product box) are 15"x11"x4.5". I took out my measuring tape and measured the dimensions of the product I received in the mail. Mine is 12"x8"x4.5". Also, the Amazon product description (and also the product box itself) describes the product as a "memory foam pillow". The tag on the pillow, however, indicates that the contents are 75% polyurethane foam and 75% polyester fiber. It is really dishonest to call a product a "memory foam" pillow when a quarter of it is nothing but fiber fill. I am a side sleeper, and when I tried out the pillow in my usual sleeping position, my neck felt strained within a matter of seconds because, unsurprisingly considering the high content of fiber fill, the pillow sinks down and does not support the head. The travel case that the pillow fits into is a good idea, and the pillow does indeed squish into the case, but it's made from super low quality material with sloppy stitching and a flimsy plastic buckle, so the whole thing seems like it will break after just one trip. This product is absolutely not worth the $30 that I paid for it. I would maybe pay $12 for a product of this quality. I am really disappointed because I chose this product over many other options because I thought I could trust the HoMedics brand after having had really positive experiences with their pillows in the past. Do not waste your money on this product!
