After searching through reviews and getting recommendations from friends I decided to try these pillows out. They arrived two days after ordering in a compressed cylinder for shipping. Upon removal from the container, they took about 30 minutes to expand to their full size, which is quite impressive given the size of the cylinder. I wanted to firmer feel to the pillow, so I threw it in the dryer for additional time based off the manufacturer's recommendation - definitely a worthwhile step!
I found them very comfortable during the first night of sleeping, but I wanted to be sure of their quality before leaving a review. As a result I waited a week to see if the pillows retained their firmness and comfort after a good seven days of use. The results were impressive.
