100 Reviews Mentioning: adjustable

Hullo is an adjustable pillow in two ways: First, the zipper on the organic cotton case allows you to adjust the amount of buckwheat fill to suit your preference. Second, the buckwheat fill allows you to adjust the shape and thickness of the pillow. This adjustability helps position your body in the most comfortable and healthy position and keep it that way. Below are reviews mentioning adjustability.

You Had Me at Hullo

I have tried several different types of pillows in my lifetime because of various orthopedic problems and desperation for non narcotic pain and insomnia relief you name it i’ve probably tried it and as a child in the mid 90’s my occupational therapy suggested to my parents i try a buckwheat pillow and it was great no more insomnia no more pain etc.etc. the problem was as the years went by the hulls eventually as they do broke down/flatten etc and there was no way to replace the hulls the casing had no zipper so unfortunately and regrettably at the time we threw it away thinking we’ll just order a new one from the therapy catalogue we had no computers back then let alone a way to online shop come to find out the company we got the first one from went out of business so i reverted back to my foam pillow and various feather cotton and so on  fast forward to about 20 years later about a year ago i started having severe episodes of insomnia and pain again remembering the comfort and relief i had with my good ol’ buckwheat pillow and this being the 21st century i decided to see if i could buy one online and bingo came across an asian company that sells king size for about 40 bucks a piece vs hullo’s price and i thinking buckwheat pillows are all the same and could save a few bucks went with the cheaper brand BIG mistake the case was so thin and stitching weak but worst off was the pesticide fumes it gave off which gave me migraines every time i slept on it because it had to be fumigated prior to being imported to the u.s.a long story short you get what you pay for and if you want a high quality if not the highest quality buckwheat pillow made in the U.S.A get a hullo

say hello to hullo then goodnight lol

p.s. i just wish a few things like the prices could be just a little lower without lowering quality or you had the choice between buckwheat or millet hulls and you could buy just the case as a spare incase something happens to the other like if it ever needs to be washed etc

Great Company, Great Product!

I’ve had terrible neck pain for about 20 years.  I recently heard about the buckwheat pillow and was lucky to be able to try one at a high end hotel.  I really liked it so I bought the cheapest “travel size” I could find thinking I could also travel with it. Mistake.  Really uncomfortable.

I did a bunch of online research and liked the way Hullo presented so I ordered their standard size pillow.

Wow!  I slept great.  About a week or two later it seemed like the hulls were compressing a little too much and I needed more buckwheat hulls.  I emailed Hullo and asked to order more hulls.  They sent them to me FREE!  For many months now, my neck pain is just gone.  I will never sleep on another type of pillow again.

The pillow seems like it needs a few more hulls again so I’m buying some more.  I guess I really like it thick for side sleeping.  I always used to sleep on my arms and my pillow. Now my arms fall asleep so it’s better to have just the pillow and leave my arms by my side.

Love the support!  Love the company.

A Great Pillow

I was a bit skeptical the first night but once I dialed it in, I’m a believer.  It took about 2 weeks of taking some out, adding some back in that I got the pillow exactly where I prefer.

I’m a side sleeper and love the support my neck and head get.  The support lasts all morning and I don’t have to keep flipping or fluffing the pillow.  The firmness does take some getting used to but I sleep with earrings in and it doesn’t bother me.

The “noise” hasn’t been a factor for me or my spouse–its just a quiet rustle as I settle into the pillow.

I love how cool it stays!

It is a little bit harder to sit propped up in bed, leaning against the headboard than a traditional pillow.  Overall a great trade for a great nights sleep.

The Best Pillow I’ve Had–Very Versatile

I like a hard pillow.  I don’t want to spend lots of $ to get one. After dealing with a chunky inconsistent pillow for too long I saw the Hullo pillow on a frequented website and said, what the heck, give it a shot.

The greatest think about the pillow is that I can adjust it anyway I want; harder, softer, build it up, sink it down.  It’s not just a hard pillow—it’s a pillow to meet any need.

I’m quite happy with it.

Take a Chance

TLDR:  Amazing pillow. Don’t let the Buckwheat or price tag steer you away. Highly recommend.

So, if you’re here, you’re likely like me.  Maybe you cicked on an ad, maybe it showed up on a google search.

Regardless, I found myself here, looking at site.. thinking it just another pillow claiming to be the next cure for world hunger.  Buckwheat? that was a nickname of one of my grade school friends.

Eventually, I decided to try them, as their return policy was great and my current pillow had me up with a sore neck and headaches more often than not.

So, the pillow arrives. I try it out of the box. It wasn’t a good nights sleep at all, or the following 6 days.  It comes with a sheet suggesting to adjust the buckwheat levels, so I tried that over 2 more nights.. and magic happened.

4 months later, I can’t imagine using any other pillow. The headaches are gone. Switching from back sleep to side sleep is effortless.

It’s even gotten to the point of me taking my pillow with me when I travel, as any other pillow seems woefully inadequate.

So if you’ve read this far and are on the fence.. I can’t recommend that you try one enough.

I Like It!

Took a week or so, ended up taking out about 3 cups of hulls to get the optimal size/shape for my side sleeping comfort zone (there are still plenty in there). Now it’s very easy to get comfortable on, and only needs an occasional push or poke if I change position.

New Level of Comfort & Sleep

To be honest, when I first got the pillow, I thought it was weird and didn’t see what all the fuss was about. It took a week or two, but sure enough Hullo became the only pillow I enjoy sleeping on.

I sleep on both my side and back and I always used two soft pillows, often folding one of them in an attempt to get the support to hold my head and neck in the right position. With Hullo, I form the pillow to the perfect shape and thickness and it holds my head in the right position all night long.  If I roll over or readjust in the night, its easy to shift the fill with my hands to adapt do different sleeping positions.

Now, floppy soft pillows just seem woefully inadequate and I sleep on Hullo every night. I even take it with me when I travel, because no other pillow comes close. Highly recommended!

No More Pain

I used to have neck pain when I woke up in the morning. So annoying! But I’ve been using the Hullo for several months now, and I love it. With a flick of my hand, I can adjust how much filling is under my head; I push the buckwheat to be flatter or make a raised area under my neck. I had tried SO many kinds of pillows and none of them stopped the pain until I tried this. I don’t think it’s noisy at all–never bothered me one bit. (My spouse says he never hears it either.)

In Love!

For 19 years I used a small buckwheat hull pillow called “Bucky”. This past spring, my Bucky finally fell apart and I found it is no longer manufactured. I started to panic because I can never sleep on any other kind of pillow and always brought Bucky along when I traveled. To my immense relief, I found Hullo and it is every bit as good as Bucky was! I sleep in all four positions during the night and with a slight shove, Hullo adjusts perfectly to cradle my neck no matter where I am.

Thank you!

Good for Sleeping on Your Side

I mostly am a side-sleeper. My Hullo pillow is just the thing I need.

I took out some of the hulls so the normal height was just right for me, or a bit high. Then a very slight adjustment gets me to perfect.

Love My Hullo

Took a while to get used to the noise, and some fine tuning on the amount of fill, but my Hullo pillow is now my guarantee of a good sleep with no stiff neck or shoulders in the morning. I’m a back sleeper and Hullo lets me have neck/cervical support while still letting my head rest just slightly to the side to prevent snoring.

I bought the small size which sideways in a standard pillow case that I then fold in half. To adjust the softness I took out enough hulls that I filled a little pillow that works great as a lap pillow to prop my Kindle or iPad on when I read.

Hullo Review

After doing some research and advice from friends, I decided to purchase the Hullo pillows. It took a little not to get used to, adjusting the amount of filler, and still can’t get it right for a sound sleep. I still wake up with tingling in my arms. Unfortunately It is past the return requirements so I am still trying to make it work. Many of my friends love it but me, not so much.

Neck Saver

I’m a toss and turner. Before the Hullo I would wake up with a sore neck from a the pillow being too soft and flat or too tall and firm. With Hullo I can adjust it to find that comfort sweet spot. If it’s not right I’ll wake up and either flatten the pillow or “fluff” it up. I now toss and turn less and wake up feeling better.  And I love not needing to turn the pillow over to the cool side.

One side benefit I found. My kids and I like to have pillow fights. Which are not so good for keeping your pillows in shape. The Hullo doesn’t participate in the pillow fights, not because I don’t want to ruin my favorite and valuable pillow, it’s because the kids (their little) say it’s too heavy!

Hullo is the Best!

I learned about the Hullo from an ad they placed on Loop Insight. Usually I don’t go for product placements, but in this case, I’m glad I did.

The Hullo has dramatically improved the way I sleep. I love that it can be shaped to fit my neck and sleeping posture.

The sound of the hulls hasn’t bothered me or my wife. To be honest, I’m not sure who would be annoyed by this, but it’s certainly not an issue for us.

I’m thinking about ordering them as holiday gifts for my parents and co-workers; the only thing keeping me from doing it is the cost of shipping to Hawaii.

Insomnia Starting to Get Better

I’ve tried a number of pillows over the years; cheap ones, expensive ones, latex foam ones.

All, even the “fancy” ones eventually just get lumps and I need to replace them. I tried foam because they wouldn’t end up with lumps but they don’t really hold my head in place and I feel my neck/shoulders tensing.

I’ve had insomnia (take 2-3 hours to fall asleep) for about 14 years.

It still take me a while to fall asleep but It’s been drastically improved with this pillow.

I sleep on my stomach and took out about half of the filling.

Highly recommended.

Make it High, or Make it Low

Tried every conceivable kind of pillow – all price ranges – would wake up with neck pain – this is perfect.  Got one for my daughter and she loves hers also.

I’m a fan.

Very Good Pillow

Very good pillow. It takes a bit of getting use to, but once you adjust I can’t imagine sleeping on anything else. I find that I sweat less, toss and turn less. The pillow allows for less lift, more lift etc.

Easy to Customize

The case and zipper are very sturdy, and I appreciate how easy it is to adjust the thickness of the pillow by just removing or adding hulls.

I usually sleep on my back, and ended up removing about half of the hulls to find the pillow density that feels just right.  As I removed the hulls, I was impressed by the uniform consistency/quality of the hulls themselves (same color/size, no shredded bits or dust).

This pillow feels much cooler than other types I’ve tried, so no more flipping the pillow in the middle of the night to try to find the cool side!

Works for Us!

It was time to replace our pillows and we were looking for new pillows that could possibly help us both to sleep better.

We both have back issues and we both snore. I also had noticed I was regularly clenching my teeth during the night and would wake up with head, neck and shoulder pain. In addition, I was always hot and sometimes I’d wake up with wet hair.

A recent visit to my mother’s home introduced me to a “sort of” buckwheat pillow that she let me try. It was a very small pillow and was filled with some type of styrofoam beads. This set me on a research binge to find a “real” buckwheat pillow. Husband was highly skeptical, but left the choice to me.

Weeks of reading finally led to the decision to go with Hullo. American made, quality materials and outstanding warranty were all factors in the decision. To me, this was something I did not want to turn out to be a costly mistake. It was happily the best choice for both of us.

The Hullo Buckwheat pillow has been perfect for me, stuffed as shipped, no more overheating, lessened snoring and the teeth clenching has disappeared. I love that this pillow is so easy to ‘adjust’ positioning and holds position as well. My husband took a week to get used to sleeping on his, ultimately he did remove three cups of the buckwheat fill to find the perfect ‘fit’ for him.

I am just very happy that this worked out for us the way it did.

Highly Recommended

Every so often I wake up with a stiff neck so I have used a neck support pillow for years.  When my last pillow came to the end of its days, I started researching on line for a made in USA neck support pillow and HULLO was the only one with a warranty, so I decided to order it.

I have had no problems with my neck since I started using it, it’s comfortable, cool and I can adjust it for back or side sleep.

Very pleased with my purchase, highly recommend it!

Shapes Well and Stays Cool

I found Hullo on Amazon and then went directly to the Hullo website. What I like best is how it shapes well with positioning and stays cool. One Hullo came stuffed with enough buckwheat for two pillows.

I discovered Hullo on the internet. What I like best about this pillow is that I can make adjustments when needed – adjusting the fill was easy. I have no suggestions for improving your product.

Great Pillow! – Very Satisfied

I like the customization of the pillow. I like a flat pillow, so I simply removed filling. Also, while sleeping, it’s very easy to adjust the pillow while having it retain support.
