66 Reviews Mentioning: cool

A buckwheat pillow is a cool pillow because buckwheat is breathable, allowing air flow. Modern cool pillow gimmicks such as water, foams and gels don’t work as well as natural buckwheat, simply because they do not breathe as well.

Takes a Bit to Get Used To

First week it felt weird but i like sleeping on my side and my head doesn’t get hot on the hulls.

I would recommend Hullo to a friend.

Love This Pillow!

This pillow is the best!  I had pretty much given up on finding a pillow that works for me.  Now, I get a restful sleep every night and love how my head stays cool.  I had never heard about these kinds of pillows until I happened upon a NY Times article about pillows and several readers wrote in recommending the buckwheat pillow.  This pillow is genius. I  have recommended it to friends.

I Love My Pillow

I’ve owed a tiny one for years and would have to put it on top of a slim polyester one and scrunch it up. I had a broken neck so every night is a challenge to get comfortable. I ordered the full size one and I LOVE it. It might take a night or two to get used to the fact that its not supper soft. But I love the fact its cool AND pretty much stays in the shape you scrunch it too or wiggle your head in it ! Im considering ordering one to ship out of state to my kids for when I go visit.

Sweet Relief :)

I have quite a bit of neck pain, and I have tried every pillow under the sun–soft, medium, hard, memory foam (contoured and non contoured), down, feather, you name it…I’ve tried it. I visited my Aunt who told me about the Hullo, and let me use for the duration of my stay. It does feel different than any other pillow that I have used, but it has the support that every other pillow cannot provide. You can make it as contoured or flat as you need it to be, and it doesn’t hold heat. So nice. My other half kept taking mine, so I had to get another so I didn’t lose my favorite find!

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!

Bye Bye Night Sweats

Finally!!!!  After trying over 20 pillows, I have found Hullo!

I have tried everything from memory foam, down, synthetic, cooling pads, wool, and no matter what, I would wake up with a hot, sweaty neck which caused me great neck pain/tension throughout the day.

The first few days felt strange, but now I am so used to it and absolutely love it.  My son is having the same problem and I just ordered one for him.

My First Buckwheat Pillow

Firmness. Support. Weight. Cooling. These are reasons why I like Hullo. It can be improved by adding a thicker cover that dampens noise.

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 Take Hullo Everywhere!

I love my Hullo! Whenever I can, I take it with me on business and pleasure trips. I even take it camping.

The best features are the form fitting design and cool-to-the-head feel. No more stiff neck or sweaty head for me thanks to my Hullo.

Be sure to adjust the fill level to your comfort. I slept on my over-stuffed for a week and didn’t like it. After adjusting the fill, I fell in love with the Hullo.

My fiance loved it so much, I had to order her one too!

Great Pillow for Pregnancy Sleeping

I ordered two Hullo pillows, and I am so glad that I did. I have been using the pillows for extra support throughout my pregnancy. I sleep on my left side with one under my head, and I have my husband tuck one under/behind my back for extra support. I also sleep with a boppy ‘comfort cuddle’ pillow between my knees and ankles, and I hug a down pillow (so in total, I am sleeping surrounded by 4 pillows), but I have been thinking of investing in two more hullos to replace the boppy pillow and the down pillow. I think this would give me the ultimate comfort!

I am currently 36.5 weeks pregnant, and I find that sleeping is when I am most comfortable. In fact, when I wake up in the mornings I forget that I am pregnant, until I try and roll over and get out of bed :). I realize that most women find sleeping really uncomfortable during pregnancy, but I attribute being able to sleep peacefully to my hullo set-up. I also like that this pillow is cool, I never get sweaty sleeping with them, unlike my other down pillows. I also like that it is animal/environmentally friendly (i.e., no down. organic). I highly recommend this pillow to pregnant women or people have other physical ailments. The price-point on the pillows may seem a little high, but I guarantee that they are worth the investment!

Never Sweat In My Sleep Anymore

The pillow stays cool during the night, I never sweat in my sleep anymore. I turn into a heater when I sleep so I love that it stays cool. I also don’t get neck strain anymore, I started getting really bad neck pain with a ~1-year old imitation down pillow so I decided to try a buckwheat pillow.
