If there is one thing my husband is known for, it’s his ability to feel warm in the middle of a blizzard. When everyone else is bundled up outside, he is happily going around in a t-shirt in the middle of November. This sometimes makes bedtime a bit difficult because I love to bundle under lots of blankets and he would prefer anything to help him feel cooler. Since I am always looking for things to make him feel comfortable, I was pretty excited when I was asked to review the Chillow – a pillow designed to stay cool naturally.
Chillow: What is It
From first glance, the Chillow really doesn’t seem like anything special. It looks like a thin, blue foamed pillow that feels slightly soft and squishy. To make it work, you fill it with 8 cups of water and let the water soak in for 4 hours. After that, you smooth it (twice, once with the cap on, and then off), and then seal it carefully with the cap again to create a vacuum. Even though they really don’t talk about it in the instruction, this step is a bit of a mess. I personally had water spill a few times during filling, but it didn’t seem to effect the cover or function of the pillow at all. The worst was that after sitting, the water was a bit on the cold side! From there, you can use the pillow as is or put it in the fridge for 15 – 30 minutes (never the freezer).
As for laying on the pillow itself, my husband seemed fairly impressed and compared it to resting his head on a water bed due to the floating water in the pillow itself. While this was odd at first, it did exactly as advertised – it helped him feel cooler and more comfortable. Based on this assessment, we are very happy to give the pillow an A rating!
