This is the cooling gel pillow that dissipates body heat to create a more comfortable sleeping surface. The soft endothermic gel interior absorbs cool ambient air and transfers the cooling sensation to your head and neck in seconds. A study by the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine has shown that cooling your head at night can mitigate brain hyperactivity, helping you fall asleep faster. The substantial gel interior creates a stable sleeping surface that contours to the shape of the head and neck like memory foam, providing support while remaining supple. The gel is infused with thousands of micro air beads that provide flexibility and facilitate air circulation to help maintain coolness. The exterior of the pillow is made from soft nylon. 21" L x 16" W x 3" H. (12 lbs.)

By Dianne the retired rev.
from Port Alberni, British Columbia, Canada
While the pillow is small it is not a problem. It is so comfortable and cool that you do not move around as much. It seems to be giving a better quality of sleep.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

from Nelson, BC, Canada
I always take a few days to adjust to a new pillow. Having said that, this pillow exceeded my expectations. I expected it to be cooling (which it was), but I worried about whether it would be supportive and conforming enough. Though I did find the fabric used to contain the gel a little heavy (it will probably soften with use), it can be mitigated with an extra pillow case. Other than that, I find the overall size, shape and maliability to be ideal.

Great pillow for neck problems
By Neck Problems
from Toronto, Canada
I have neck and shoulder problems-- this pillow (I sleep on my side, so I use it in combination with a, soft feather pillow) is the best solution that I have found-- it really helps reduce the discomfort and the following day of pain that results from a night spent sleeping without the right kind of support. The cooling element I considered a bonus-- but now I find it is essential for a good nights sleep as well. My one problem with this product is its lack of durability. I'm on my second pillow now-- the cooling gel slowly leaked out over a period of time. I'm sure this isn't a problem with normal use-- I have cats who sleep with me, and they walk over the pillow-- and one has a tendency to knead (with claws out). I'm hoping that with this problem in mind, I will be able to extend the lifespan of this second pillow-- even with this caveat, I consider this pillow essential to a good nights sleep.
Cools me down to fall asleep
By Sue the retired lady
from Ottawa Ontario & Naples Florida
I wish there was a pillow case the same size as the pillow; my pillow cases are too long and I have to fold them over the pillow.
This was a great present!
from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
My wife bought me this as a present. I have to say it works great. I do not sweat as much when I'm sleeping now!
Didn't find that the heat was dissipated
By Hot Head in Bed
Was great for falling asleep as the pillow was very cool. However, the heat did not dissipate and remained in the pillow. Woke up after an hour and a half extremely hot.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

heavier than you'd think
By HS fan
from Milwaukee, WI
I believe that this pillow does keep your head cool, but I could not use it for more than 30 minutes because it was so heavy. I move around and the pillow is so heavy that it does not move easily. So I returned it (it was covered with a clean pillowcase).

You'll love it or hate it
By Jim of Ken
from Kenosha Wi
The viscous nature of the gel takes some getting used to. It does, as advertised, seem cooler for a "hot headed" sleeper, but it's difficult to bunch up to make it thicker for side-sleeping.

no more night sweats
from North Carolina
Since sleeping on this pillow (3 weeks now) I have not woken up in a sweat once. I used to wake up nearly every night over heated and sweaty with my hair soaked, and now those problems are gone. I can sleep through the night without having to get up and get a towel or move to the other side of the bed. The pillow is comfortable - firm, the way i like it - and holds its shape to cradle my head. Its small, so i had to put it on top of another, flat pillow which is the only con. But i would absolutely recommend this pillow and intend to sleep on it the rest of my life.

Cooling Gel Pillow is Cool Man!
By Big Ron
from Chattanooga, TN
My wife complained of waking up with a sweaty neck for months. She tried several things to try and not wake up with the back of her head and neck wet with sweat. She spotted the cooling gel pillow and even thought I though it was a bit pricy we ordered it. She is crazy about this pillow and sleeps much more comfortably with it, than any other pillow she has tried, and there have been several.
