Weekender Ventilated Gel Memory Foam Pillow

While recognizing that bed pillows are one of the things that people might be the most particular about in the whole world, there are certain features that seem to be somewhat universally crowd-pleasing amongst the competitors. Because when the base level is lumpy, deflated, plain hot pillows—which as it happens, tends to be what we come into contact with too often to be fun nor acceptable—there is only going up from there; and in this case, one of the top tier options can be found on Amazon and arrive at your door in two shakes of a lamb’s tail. 

You’ll see the number before you even venture to see what’s inside: 6,000. That’s how many reviews the Weekender Ventilated Gel Memory Foam Pillow has on Amazon, already up from the 5,800 reviews from when we last looked a few days ago. Shoppers seem to come for the memory foam that supports the neck and head with just enough give to form softly to your sleep pattern, and they stay for temperature-regulating gel that teams up with added ventilation to ensure you need not turn to the cold side of the pillow come 3 a.m.

Overall, reviewers note that this particular pillow is made for those who like the balance between firm and soft that comes with choosing memory foam, with the extra perk of being a cooling pillow to stave off night sweats on the regular. The latter detail is popular purely due to the fact that a cold pillow surface is one of the simplest pleasures in life. One shopper—a self-dubbed “pillow snob”—reported that after testing tons of pillows, this is the only one she loves enough to cram into a suitcase for a work trip. The value of luggage space is no joking matter. 

Plus, it comes with a removable cover that helps keep your pillow clean and tear-free and can be removed to be put in your washing machine. Easy-peasy. Given that it comes complete with a three-year warranty, you could call it a shame not to at least try, right? (SHOP IT: $29.99; amazon.com)
