1st thought…buckwheat pillow?…SOUNDS WEIRD…after 1st night…OMG I LOVE THIS THING!

OK let me start by saying I’ve never even considered a buckwheat pillow before.  I’ve either used foam or feather pillows in the past. But there is a point after so many nights of wrestling with your pillow you get desperate and are willing to try anything.

COST:
I would not call the buckwheat pillows from “hullo” cheap and I’m sure you can find bargain pillows online.  That being said my personal option is if I’m trying something different I want to try the best and get the clearest idea if it’s right for me.

QUALITY:
The quality of material from “hullo” is wonderful.  I don’t have any other buckwheat pillows to compare but I would say without question I’m totally satisfied with what they sell and can’t think of anything else I would want or expect.

FIRST NIGHT:
From my research on buckwheat pillows I had expected it to be a bit loud.  This is small hulls right next to your ear after all. But I have to say it really isn’t that loud and one thing to remember is it only makes noice when your moving around on your pillow not when your resting still.  That leads me to my biggest revelation with this pillow. After only a few minutes I realized…with a buckwheat pillow you literally are able to “sculpt” a custom pillow for your head every time you use it. With a buckwheat pillow every time you move you get a whole new pillow custom to you.

After the first night my wife said my snoring was almost zero. Everyone’s experience is obviously different but lets just say I was impressed…VERY impressed after the first night.

COMPLAINTS:
We don’t live in a perfect world and most things in life can be improved on.  In the case of the Standard 20″ × 26″ Bed Pillow I purchased from “hullo” I would say only one thing stands out as needing improvement.  The amount of buckwheat they provide in their pillows.  Don’t get me wrong it’s not like they rip you off or anything on the fill amount.  And yes, every customer is likely to have a slightly different amount of “ideal” fill.  All I’m saying is I wish they would provide you MAX filled pillows and explain to the user that you will likely need to remove some to reach your ideal fill. This would save your customers the extra $50 cost required for extra buckwheat filling.  Then again it’s a business and profit is required.

Just saying….hullo…if your reading this…and let’s be honest it’s a review on your own site…your reading it…please just consider erring on the side of caution and put more filling in your pillows:)

LAST WORDS:
Did I spend $150 (including my purchase of extra fill) on one pillow?  Yes I did…and I would do it again in a second!  I love my hullo pillow…enough to even write a lengthy review praising it.

I would recommend Hullo to a friend.

Neck Support & Less Snoring

My old pillow was molded with a neck rest. I hadn’t replaced it in years and the neck rest was starting to flatten. In the mornings, my neck ached, so I knew it was time for a new pillow. Around this time, I also started snoring and snorting myself awake because I wasn’t getting enough air. I remembered a pillow from a Japanese ryokan that had felt hard the first night, but I ended up loving after our stay. I failed to find that pillow, but came across Hullo. Wow! I’ve been using it for 3 months. My neck doesn’t hurt in the mornings and my snoring has lessened.

Based on the reviews, I got the smaller pillow. As recommended, I took some of the filling out over subsequent nights until I found the right comfort level for me. It is noisy if you toss and turn a lot, but I’ve found that once it’s in the crater shape I want (lots of hulls in a U shape under the neck), it cradles my head and I don’t move much during the night. I ended up emptying about half the hulls and am not sure what to do with the excess. The pillow material is durable and the tuck away zipper made it easy to adjust the filling while still being secure when closed.

Love It – Did Have to Add Buckwheat

I destroy pillows with my heavy head – they break down in a few weeks.  And I need the pillow to help me avoid snoring.

I have had the Hullo about 3 months.  What a difference.  I did have to add about 8 cups of buckwheat to get the firmness I wanted.  It is really great.  I also have found that after a few weeks, I need to add a cup as I presume some buckwheat either breakdown or lack tighter together.  It has made a significant difference in my sleep.

Best Sleep Ever

Had heard John Gruber’s recommendation/ad on his Podcast, ‘The Talk Show’, for months and my wife and I finally decided to take the plunge, as we really needed some new pillows. After a few nights of adjustment, we both have been sleeping better than we have in years. I have not been waking up at night, my wife says I am snoring less and neither of us are waking up with neck pain and we feel refreshed in the morning.

Not sure what it is, but this is honestly the best sleep decision we have ever made. Would highly recommend you try these pillows out, well worth the cost.

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.

I Love My Hullo

This is the best pillow I have ever owned.  I have neck/back problems and this has alleviated most of these problems.

I no longer wake up with any pain and get a much better sleep.  The pillow stays cool throughout the night which reduces my tossing and turning.  It has also helped greatly with nighttime snoring 🙂

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.

Sleep More Soundly

I feel like I get a much more sound sleep on the Hullo pillow. My neck doesn’t hurt at all after a night on the Hullo. My husband doesn’t snore as much when sleeping on his Hullo. I love Hullo!
