Four year update...dont judge me
on July 29, 2013
I know you are supposed to change out pillows sooner than 4 years. But this was the most comfortable pillow I have ever had. Given we sleep a third of our lives...I have been in constant contact with this pillow for at least 1 entire year. I changed out the pillow for hygienic maintenance reasons, and nothing about the pillow. the new one fluffed right up. This is down, and it is the kind your head sinks down in to and you need to mush it up around your head for perfect support. if you are the kind that likes an unyielding styrofoam motel pillow...this is not for you. Ill probably switch out a bit sooner this time...but still get the same pillow...which seems to be of the same quality as it was 4 years ago...
I have some chronic cervical issues, so a good pillow is really important. Those hyper inflated hotel pillows are useless, and I am forced to use towels...that are less than satisfactory. I don't know what some of the reviewers are expecting, but some of us are hoping for a pillow that has loft when left alone, and can be scrunched to whatever desired position is necessary. With one of those allergy covers, and a slip cover, this measure 9" in thickness. Then, as the head is applied, it settles down. If it settles too much, you just scrunch it up to adjust the thickness.
My guess is that the small one is a surprise for someone expecting more of a standard size, and the large might be stuffed too much. Another great benefit of Amazon Prime. I wouldn't discount the pillow unless you are sure you have the right size.
Its made in the USA, but I have no idea if the down is from massaged free range ducks or not.
