I just received my new purple bean zafu today. I love it. One of the previous reviewers said it may not suit the overweight person. I am one to say that this pillow has been tried and tested by this 5'6" 260lb woman;) It works fine and is very comfortable.

I searched for just the right meditation pillow for quite a while and finally found this one. I'm very happy with it and am very glad I got it. I'd happily purchase it again. The size of this pillow is substantial and its easy to get comfortable nestling down into the buckwheat hulls. I find that it provides just the right amount of elevation so that I can have a good straight posture without any strain on my hips, back, legs etc. Its perfect!

While I was shopping, I saw a lot of fancy silk and brocade zafus (for quite a lot of money) and thought all along that that just didn't seem very practical. Pretty, yes, but for a pillow that's going to be living on the floor in house with 3 dogs and a couple of rambunctious kids, that just seemed to be asking for trouble. The covering is a nice heavy canvas in a solid purple color (lots of other colors are available). Attached to one side is a sturdy nylon band carrying handle. There is a vertical zipper close by the handle so that you could remove some of the buckwheat hulls if desired for a more yielding feel. Or add some back, I guess.

My only (relatively minor) issue is that the canvas cover you sit on is not removable for cleaning. There is no inner liner that actually holds the hulls. If you unzip the zipper all of the hulls could potentially escape. So casual cleaning is realistically not going to happen. If some dog vomits on it (it could happen, its happened before in my house) then I could just buckle down and do just that: empty all the hulls into a bucket, wash or dry clean and then refill.

Oh well, a relatively minor caveat for a great, highly functional meditation pillow.

zipper closure does not seal well and you end up with buckwheat leaking
They need to seal the buckwheat in a seperate bag inside the canvas

I use this cushion for my vipassana practice. It's sturdy and comfortable. The price is low and it was made in the US. I'm not sure you could ask for more. It's not terribly decorative, but honestly I prefer that. I'd rather focus on my practice than on my cushion. Good job Bean!

Meditation is something I've been doing for years, but I've always tried to tough it out on the floor or just a couch cushion. I finally broke down and got the zafu cushion plus additional zabuton and was great surprised at the difference it made. I found the zafu surprisingly sturdy and supported my back much better without being too soft or too hard and lumpy. The stuffing inside is tight and comfortable, and I find it much easier to meditate for a prolonged period without the loss of circulation, numbness, or slightly crooked spine issues I had before.

I was also pleased to see that my three year old daughter enjoys the set too, not for meditation, but as a simple "bean bag" style seat she can use, so she uses it almost as often as I do. After two months of owning it, the product continues to be pretty useful. Thanks!

I'm almost 60 and have problems with my knees,hips,back ... you name it; but with this cushion I can comfortably sit on the floor to meditate. Somehow my back and hips are supported so that I can sit for 30-45 minutes without squirming around. The cushion material is very sturdy and there is no smell; the buckwheat is loose inside the cushion but that is not an issue for me -- comfort is my main concern and this cushion has that covered. The handle works great; I sometimes carry it to the living room to sit on to watch tv or paint my toenails!!...oh, and made in the USA .. Yeah!!

I find that the filling in this cushion moves too much to the back/rear of the cushion. Most meditation sitting instructions indicate that proper sitting position is to sit on the front third of the cushion. When I use that position with this cushion, the filling moves to the back of the cushion, resulting in significant sinking. If you sit on the middle of the cushion, the sinking is not a problem, but you are sacrificing other aspects of your posture.

So I was pretty happy with the build quality at first. Even though this thing is too tall and packed for me, I was able to drain some of the buckwheat husks for a more comfortable position. I'm 5'11'', and I sat too high for long sessions. About a month ago, however, I started noticing tiny little bugs, the size of a skin pore or so, on books and around my meditation platform. I thought at first they may have been some tiny insects that flew through the mosquito screen somehow.

Last week however, I picked up a book I left on the tatami platform, where this Zafu rested. It was crawling with these bugs. Upon further inspection, my zafu was overrun with a layer of these mites, and they were crawling everywhere in the room. I opened the zafu and realized that these must have hatched from eggs inside the husks and were coming out through the fabric by the thousands. I ended up dumping the filling, spending a day cleaning and vaccuuming my study room, and having to wash the zabuton underneath, which is now ruined. So I'm down a Zafu and zabuton because of the dismal quality of this product. And I spent an afternoon and evening removing this bug infestation from my place. If that's what you are into, then by all means take your chances with this product. Otherwise, LOOK ELSEWHERE. Now I need to find another zafu I can trust, or some filling to put into the empty canvas bag which I washed and was able to save.... I wish I had three thumbs so I could give this thing 3 thumbs down. I don't even know if I should request a replacement from these guys since they might send me another infested pillow.... NOT WORTH IT.
