I live in Phoenix, which is known for being, oh, a bit warm during the summer. We had 118 degrees back in June. It was only the fourth hottest day on record. I'm someone who requires a relatively cool environment for sleeping. As a result, it's vital to me to have a sleeping surface that doesn't retain heat when I'm sleeping. I already had a Sleep Innovations 10-inch Sure Temp Memory Foam Mattress - Queen Size, and that does the trick for that, but I was using a pair of Ikea pillows which were reasonably comfortable, but retained quite a bit of heat.
Happily this pillow, by the same people who made my mattress, does not. It's cool and it's comfortable! I fluffed it up once and didn't have to mess with it at any point during the night and, unlike with my other pillows, I didn't wake up with a big damp spot on the pillowcase from sweating (I shave my head, so the sweat has nothing to hold it back!). That alone was a nice thing.
Really I'd say this is a great little pillow! It's inexpensive and it more than gets the job done! Highly recommended!
