Rated 5 out of 5 by LilMary Perfect pillow
We have always slept on down pillows, but we would spend a fortune on them and they'd eventually flatten to become as hard as cement. We decided to try synthetic alternatives, starting with shredded memory foam (from another seller) -- but those pillows weighed a ton and were hard to shift around in the middle of the night, so we sent them back. We next tried these LL Bean medium softness pillows, and we love them. They remain thick and bouncy all night, and they're light enough to easily adjust in the middle of the night. We just ordered two more for our guest bed, this time choosing firm so we (and our guests) have a choice in what to use. We're very satisfied!

I've always had down pillows for sleeping. They were beat and needed to be replaced. Down pillows are great but they are expensive. I decided to try Down Alternative; when I called I had some questions Customer Service checked with the "pillow expert".
Decided to try the medium, having been told it will react as my down pillows had. Tried the one and in the next couple of months will buy a second.

Rated 5 out of 5 by yodagirl1968 can't beat this price
I bought two of these to try out given the price tag of only $30 and am very happy with my purchase. Great value for the price and plan to replace most of my older pillows in my home with these. We are not particular or in need of hypoallergenic items, so can't address those issues, but as far as a great overall basic pillow, this one is perfect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by FairPoint Not Hypoallergenic at all
Due to my severe allergies, I cannot use a down pillow, so I decided to try this down alternative. After ten minutes on it, my eyes were burning, and I had to remove it from the room. I think it is off gassing, either from the cover fabric or from the polyester fill.
In addition, the medium is very firm. Against a ruler it is 8" thick, and barely compresses down to 6" when you lie on it. It is not good for a back sleeper.
I am very unhappy to be stuck with a useless pillow that will be too expensive to return. Buy with caution!

I bought these pillows from LLBean after having a hard time finding a good pillow for my wife and I. We have only had these pillows for a few weeks so I can not review them on how long they last BUT so far they are great! They seem to be great quality and we are pleased with the comfort and quality of sleep so far!

This is a very good and well made alternative to the expensive down pillows I usually buy. I am tempted, however, to open a seam and remove some of the stuffing as there is too much stuffing for the pillow cover. I need a soft pillow and it would be even softer with less stuffing..

Rated 5 out of 5 by MotherEarth Hasn't gone flat yet!
I am a stomach sleeper and often find that pillows go flat or ball up if I wash them. I also find that if I buy a pillow that is geared for stomach sleepers they go flat in no time at all. I can't use memory foam, they give me a neck ache. I have had this pillow now for five years. It has been washed in the washer, dried in the dryer, cuddled and tossed and is still wonderful. I will only buy this pillow when others in the house need to be replaced.

I loved it right out of the box! I'm a side sleeper and have trouble finding pillows to support my neck....I had a down alternative pillow from another company that I had to fluff every night and even sometimes in the middle of the night....this one stays fluffed and full all the time and is so supportive....I've tried water pilows, pillows from my chiropractor, temperpedic pillows....this one is the best!

I have only used the pillow for a couple nights. Every pillow I buy, elsewhere, and I have many of them, feel good for a few days and then they go flat. I am hoping against hope that this one stays the way it is, as it has been the best nights sleep I have had in a long time.
