Bucky Buckwheat Hull Bed Pillow -- 1 Pillow
It will keep your head COOLER, but takes adjusting
I have what the chiropractor called a "military neck" - it's straight as can be without a curve. He also seemed to imply that this was not a good thing. My memory foam pillow eventually "forgot" where it was supposed to be, so I thought, "Buckwheat... that will adjust wherever I put it." And it does, BUT I'm the one who has to put it how I want it. It seems to take a lot of adjusting before I'm really happy with it, whereas with the memory pillow, all I had to do was lie down. So... my conclusion is memory foam for the winter, buckwheat for the summer. This does appear to be a fine buckwheat pillow, and if you like buckwheat, I imagine you'll be very happy with this one.

I have several buckwheat eye pillows and I love and use them everyday, I never thought about a pillow for my head. My Buckwheat pillow is way better than the memory foam $100 pillows I have. I will admit, I was expecting a standard size pillow instead of the smaller size about 5" shorter. When my back hurts I lay on it and it does help the buckwheats adjust to my head and to my back. I am very happy with my purchase.

Better than Sobakawa!
I have had long-standing neck problems (C1 and C2 alignment problems, lead to headaches and stiffness) and a year or so ago I switched from a standard pillow to the Sobakawa "bead" pillow. I was amazed. Much less pain and just more comfortable. Then I saw this pillow and read the reviews and figured I'd try it out, as the casing for my Sobakawa was stretching and thus losing some of the support. I have to say, despite the noise (which you really do get used to) it's a great pillow! 4 stars instead of 5 only because it's a bit smaller than standard so my pillowcase doesn't fit it very nicely. But it's heavy so I guess if it was bigger it would only be heavier. A great supportive pillow for back and side sleepers (probably too dense for stomach sleepers, but what do I know). Not really made for travel, but they make a smaller travel pillow for that. I definitely recommend this pillow!
(Also, no smell at all coming from the buckwheat hulls, in case you were wondering.)

Best Pillow Ever
The Bucky Pillow is really the best pillow I have ever slept on. It conforms to the head and neck and I am sleeping better and more soundly. The Pillow also has a nice weight to it.
My fiancee is thrilled because now I have my own Bucky pillow and am not always trying to steal his.

I bought this to replace a buckwheat pillow that was getting old. It is very comfortable, well made and has a lot of filling in it. I think Bucky makes quality products.
