Cooling pillow ?

Post by Hexdump » Sat Sep 26, 2015 8:38 am

Has anyone bought a cooling pillow that will last the night ?
I need 2 of them and most reviews saw that they warm up pretty fast.

From a thermodynamic point of view, you want a pillow with low bulk density, or high air content, so that there is a low mass of material available to retain heat over time.

I used to sweat through just about every pillow I bought until I tried a buckwheat pillow. Not only are they wonderful at cradling my neck when back sleeping, as well as actually reaching my head when side sleeping (wide shoulders), but there is plenty of airspace to prevent the pillow from overheating.

+1 for buckwheat. I like to sleep on my right side and recently had oral surgery on that side of my mouth. I was incredibly sore in the morning until "dawn broke over Marblehead" and I set up my pillow to support my head without making any contact with my cheek. And yes, they stay cool also :D

Timely thread here. Have the same sleep problem. Tried the buckwheat hulls route, helps a little, not much.
Local store has the SensorPEDIC CoolMax brand on a fantastic sale right now, plus I have 40% off coupon.

Can get a king-sized one that is regularly $140 for about $50. Am very tempted to try one at those prices but I don't want to find out they really don't work as well as promised.

Anyone have any good things to say about the SensorPEDIC Cool Max product?

No, Peebles.

Or, as we locals call it, Pebbles Dept Store where the discriminating shoppers -Barney and Wilma Flintstone - are seen :P :P

I actually bought this and it is in the mail. The buckwheat pillow sounds good and I will wait and see how the pad works.
