Built on the same ergonomically-shaped air-core as Air Pillow and Air Pillow UL, this one has a down topper on one side for a luxuriously soft feel that only down can achieve. The quick-drying, brushed tricot nylon cover is soft against the skin and can be separated from the inner air chamber for washing.
Down Pillow is designed with different surface facets to support the three main ways people sleep: back, side and belly sleeping. At home, a person pushes, pulls and molds a pillow to exactly the right shape for their particular comfort requirements. Down Pillow’s design achieves the same thing by creating asymmetrical contours. The center is concave, to cradle the back of the head for back sleepers and the thicker end cradles their neck. Side sleepers also benefit from the thicker end of the pillow, which provides the right height when shoulders are stacked one atop the other. For belly sleepers, the thinner end of the pillow offers the right amount of support height. And because of these different facets, people who find themselves in between these sleep positions are able to find in-between shapes that offer greater or lesser levels of support.
Another important aspect of Down Pillow’s design is, well, the fact that it’s an air cell. By changing the firmness of the inflation – more or less air – the shapes described above are more or less defined, making the facets even more variable.
In the end, the key to this pillow is the down topper, which for some sleepers is indispensable. It is extremely soft and offers just the right amount of insulation. When it comes to a good night’s sleep, seemingly small niceties can have significant effects. Down is one of these!
