Rated 4 out of 5 by OkieRazorback Very comfortable and has endured
I grew up on feather pillows. A couple years ago the feather pillows I had had for years just were plain wore out. So I started trying to find replacements.
Feather pillows of any quality are hard to find. Most down pillows are outrageous in price. I had tried down alternatives before, and found them comfortable...initially. The supposed good quality ones I had bought from another retailer become very flat after a couple months and just would not bounce back.
With that in mind when I purchased the LL Bean down alternative I bought the firm. When it came it was very thick and I thought too big. I kept it, and bought the same in a medium firmness.
I have used both pillows for several months now. Both have collapsed a little. In fact at this point the firm is PURRFECT and the medium is still very acceptable. I sleep on my side and have broad shoulders so I need a thicker pillow. The firm is working great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Tobeleh Way too high and not comfortable
I'm so disappointed in these pillows. Obviously very good quality BUT they are extremely full so it is like sleeping on several pillows. I ordered firm, since generally I prefer firm pillows, but the combination of the firmness and the height make them very uncomfortable and unusable. Sorry I discarded packing materials because I would otherwise return.

Bought one of each because I hated my old pillows and found that the medium and firm were too firm and the soft was too soft all by itself but found that when I use the medium or firm on the bottom and then the soft pillow on top it was just perfect with correct elevation and really soft pillow to sink into on top. Finally can get comfortable again and feel like I am sleeping in a expensive hotel.

This pillow is light as a feather and is and is excellent to rest my head on.

Great product, as advertised. Pillow cover was more yellow then beige, which I don't like, but since I cover it with a protector, it really doesn't matter.

Depends what kind of pillow you like. I love this one - we have 6 of them. I ordered the last one when we were on an extended vacation, and their pillows were too hard and I got neck problems! So I ordered my usual. They are moldable, washable, wonderful. They tend to get a bit lumpy, so you have to work them out again with your hands. But a good soft pillow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mem7 Great soft pillow.
I have been looking for a soft pillow in stores but having no success.
I ordered one from the l.l. Bean Catalog and it's just what I wanted.
I use it with a firmer pillow and have found the neck comfort I was
looking for. I am very satisfied.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Nala Medium is a little overstuffed
As a back and side sleeper, I bought the recommended Medium fill. The pillow looked nicely made, and fluffed up easily out of the box. I slept on it one night and woke the next day with significant pain in my jaw that lasted all day. I would have sent it back, but since I am skilled with a sewing machine, it was easier for me to fix it. I opened it up, weighed it, and removed sufficient fill to bring it to the "Soft" category. The pillow seems about right for me now, and I've slept well for the last several nights. I am a small-framed woman; perhaps the pillow was designed for the shoulders and head of a man?

I absolutely love this pillow! I wanted to purchase the firm pillow because I am a side sleeper. However, based on some of the reviews that said the firm was too hard, I thought I should order the medium. Fortunately, they were out of mediums, so I went with the firm thinking it was worth a try. Boy am I glad I did. It is very soft, but gives me plenty of lift for proper spinal alignment. The quality is wonderful. I am so glad I took a chance.
