Note: this review is written after 2 weeks of using the product - will update later with any changes in opinion.
COMFORT - 4 stars: With it's contour shape, it is probably the most comfortable pillow I've used. I'm an 80% side sleeper and 20% back sleeper. The shape has an edge that is perfect for side sleeping - the problem is that that edge is not supportive enough for back sleeping; the opposite edge is great for back sleeping, but waking/raising up enough to flip the pillow 180 degrees just to comfortably sleep on my back for a half hour and then flip it back again to roll back on my side just isn't going to happen.
COOLING - 3 stars: Better than any pillow I've used up until now, and the pillow has enough mass to stay cool for hours. At 70 degrees, it feels like it's been chilled, it's great; but at 75 degrees it feels the same temperature as the air, not cool at all. And if your room is 70 degrees, you don't really need a cooling pillow anyway! So don't buy it just for the cooling.
ODOR: This is my biggest concern with the pillow. I've had memory foam pillows and/or mattress toppers before which smell just a bit for a few days and then no odor is noticeable.....but this pillow smelled more than any pillow I've had before, and smells as much today (after 2 weeks) as when I first removed it from the package. I'm going to throw it in the closet for a few weeks and see if it still smells at that point. If it does, I will give up on it.
SUMMARY: Not sure yet whether I would recommend this pillow. It has potential, but only if I can get rid of the odor!
