Deveiving & Amazing

Hesitated, thinking it would be too hard to be comfortable. Now, I’ll probably never use another kind of pillow.  I’m a solid back sleeper and I don’t move much. My husband is an all over the place sleeper. We both have found some pains alleviated, since we transitioned.  Also love that the pillow never loses its form and get all lumpy and sloppy looking. Best decision.

I would recommend Hullo to a friend.

As Promised

As other reviewers have stated, my pillow felt hard when I first started using it, but after getting the proper amount of fill correct I can adjust it “on the fly” while I sleep and enjoy it very much.

Hullo is a fine company with a great product and “more” than fair policies. A refreshing change from most of todays marketing hoopla!

Keep up the good work and great service.

Best Pillow Ever

Both my husband and I are instantly in love!  We are people that use totally different kinds of pillows too – I’ve always been a thin or feather girl he likes his more bulky and supportive but after one sleep we both fell in love with this pillow!

Fabulous Night Sleep

We purchased one from our daughter who did not like it. We loved it and ordered a second one. It’s probably not for everyone but we sleep so good. You should like a firm mattress/pillow in order for you to love it. No more neck/ shoulder pain.

Best Pillows Ever

My husband and I have been using our Hullo pillows for about 9 years. We just bought more bulk buckwheat hulls to freshen up one of our pillows. These are the greatest pillows on the planet and I have tried them all. Totally worth the money for a good pain free night’s sleep. I will not use another pillow or another brand. Customers for life!!

Solid Pillow

Like most of the reviews tell you it takes a day or two to get used to it. It’s different but that is what makes them great. Less neck/back pain. Better deeper sleep.

Wonderful!

I love this pillow. It’s made a huge difference in my quality of sleep and in my neck pain. I love how adjustable it is. I removed a decent amount of the hulls to make it fit exactly how I needed it to. I will never use another pillow. High quality and wonderful results!

Sleeping Better Than Ever

As a side-sleeper, I woke up several times per night to adjust my pillow (flip it over, switch it with another, etc). Now I just sleep…

I Love My Sack of Grain

I got a buckwheat pillow for me and my partner. The pillow didn’t kill their snoring entirely, but snoring is down 90% at least. The sound has gone from a drowning water buffalo to the rumble of a old car in far in the distance. I can tune it out and sleep. For me, I don’t wake up with neck pain anymore, and I only have to sleep on one pillow. As an added bonus, my pillow is now so heavy that my kid can’t steal it off the bed for pillow forts.

It took a little getting used to, and the pillow had a faint smell at first, but as someone who gets migraines from strong smells I can attest that it wasn’t strong and didn’t smell bad. To me, it smelled like black tea, almost. I never in a million years would have thought that sleeping on what is essentially a sack of grain would improve my sleep so much, but it absolutely has.

You should absolutely get one, as long as you don’t intend to use it for pillow fights.

Great, Supportive Pillow

This is a a firm pillow that takes a few days to get used to.  When it first arrived I was surprised by how heavy it was.  It was also very firm to the point where I thought that there was no way I would like it.  In the box is a paper that tells you how to use it (weird, it’s a pillow, I’ve been using a pillow my whole life).  The card was right, fluff it up, lay your head on it, give it a few days to get used to it, definitely don’t use it with another pillow.  This is a great pillow, but you need to give it a chance.  I use to wake up with headaches or neck pain, especially if I used more than one pillow to try to get some support.  In the few months I have had the Hullo, I have not woken up with pain, and I have slept great.  Also, it stays cool.  You don’t have to flip the pillow in the night.  Buy one, try it, you’ll probably love it.

Perfection

I bought this pillow upon a recommendation from my brother. Amazing pillow overall. It certainly allows me to sleep better every night on a cool surface instead of a hot pillow. Highly recommend it!

I Didn’t Think REM Sleep was Possible For Me Anymore!

After getting this pillow, I no longer have to take so much time readjusting myself to try to find the right neck support in the middle of the night. I don’t have to think so much about how to get comfortable, because this pillow seems to shape itself around you! I have the best sleep I’ve had since I was a teenager, and it feels effortless.

Perfect Night’s Sleep

I hated my Hullo pillow the first two nights I had it. Then I followed the instructions and took some of the hulls out to adjust the height and firmness and now it is perfect. Best pillow I ever had.

Best Sleep Ever

When I left my Hullo pillow at a hotel during a recent visit and couldn’t get in touch with that hotel, I immediately went out and ordered a new pillow. My sleep was horrible without it. I was able to recover my original Hullo pillow, which has now become my travel pillow. Never leave home without it.

Great Neck Support

I bought the small buckwheat pillow and absolutely love it. I removed some of the buckwheat – sleep with my upper body elevated and needed a small supportive pillow. BINGO.  The Hullo pillow is perfect. I can adjust it to support my neck and yet it doesn’t further raise my head. I was concerned at first about the noise the buckwheat makes when you sleep on it but it was never an issue. I highly recommend this pillow.

Great Supportive Pillow

I replaced a +25 year old buckwheat pillow (not a Hullo) that had become rather flat.  The new Hullo is larger and nicely full.  I have tried many different pillows over the years and find the buckwheat pillows provide the right amount of adjustability whether side or back sleeping.  Other pillows have left me with a sore neck or back and frequent waking to adjust the pillow.  With the Hullo I can create a hollow for my head with the right amount of support under my neck to avoid the previous painful mornings.  Love it!

Adjustable Support

I am very happy with my buckwheat pillow. I am a back sleeper and appreciate being able to shape the pillow to support my neck.  I took out some of the buckwheat filling but will save it for possibly replacing. The only draw back to the pillow is the weight. I bought the full size pillow so that it matches other pillows on my bed and it is heavy but worth it for the comfort. I would recommend this pillow.

5 Years Strong

I heard about this pillow years ago on a podcast with John Gruber and made an impulse purchase that changed my sleep. I have had my Hullo pillow for over 5 years and it has held up very well and is used every night.

I have now started to feel the need to add some hulls, but this is the first time I have needed to since owning it.

My wife and son are jealous of my pillow and I plan on getting them their own when I order more buckwheat for my pillow.

For some this pillow may feel heavy, so you may want to try the smaller version if that is an issue. You may also hear that the buckwheat hulls can seem loud. I had this same reaction at first, but after a few nights i didn’t notice the sound anymore; now it’s kind of soothing.

Thank you for making this product, it has changed how I sleep.

Awesome Pillow!

I have tried dozens of pillows, from the cheapest to the most expensive. Every single one was a serious disappointment, especially the expensive ones because who wants to pay a lot for something that’s awful? I was beyond desperate. Why…WHY is it so impossible to make a firm pillow?? My head sunk to the mattress with every pillow I tried. So, not only no support, but the ends would pop up around my face. Uncomfortable and annoying! I stacked them…two, three, even four. That just made it annoying in layers.

I came across your product and thought it couldn’t hurt to try one more. I cannot possibly express how happy I am that I tried a Hullo Pillow. It’s a dream come true. I am not exaggerating. I had a bit of doubt that I’d like it when the noise of the hulls was mentioned. I should not have hesitated for a second. It’s very quiet, certainly doesn’t wake me up when I move during the night, and was very easy for me to get used to as I fall asleep.

Anyone struggling to find a good, firm pillow needs to try a Hullo. I have told every single person I know about this amazing pillow. I’ve even made a few people lay on it to see how great it is.

I am unable to thank you enough for making this pillow. I’m definitely going to buy more, for each side of the bed and for the couch, as I fall asleep there a lot.

Thank you,
Lisa Pence

Impulse Purchase That Worked Out

I bought a Hullo on a total impulse when I saw an advertisement for it on the listing for a podcast that I don’t even listen to. My wife and I most recently had gotten “pedic” brand cooling pillows and I wasn’t ever really happy with mine, so I figured I’d try something new and quirky. I already do other quirky things like unicycle and use words like “obsequious” online like people have any idea what I mean.

There’s nothing I can say about the pillow itself that hasn’t already been said in the product description and other reviews: those things are all true. Most importantly to my review, though, is to say that I was immediately surprised by how comfortable the pillow is to sleep on. It feels great when sleeping on my side, my face nuzzled into its cool-feeling surface. It’s not great at all when sleeping on my back, but I have a fairly thin foam pillow that goes over the top of the Hullo when I am sleeping on my back, and that works out great. I usually start the night on my back, with the foam pillow over the Hullo, and then part way through the night I switch to sleeping on my side and push the foam pillow out of the way and just use the Hullo.

If you’re weird and quirky and feel like a change of pace might be in order, you should try one of these out. Just know that the Hullo is about double the price you can pay elsewhere online for a buckwheat pillow, and that is why I have docked it one star. But I am relatively okay with this, as that extra money goes to podcast creators (in the most ideal context anyway). To be fair, I can’t speak based on experience whether the cheaper pillows are as nice, but as far as I can tell it’s just a bag full of buckwheat hulls, how much differentiation in quality can there be?

I Never Thought I’d Write a Review for a Pillow

But wow, Hullo is different and in an amazing way. When it arrived I had SERIOUS doubts! Because it is SO different than anything I’ve ever used. But I sleep like a log with it and my snoring has abated. Game-changing.
