Chillow: The Verdict

Before even having one, I declared it The Greatest Thing Ever. Dave Walls gave it a definite thumbs up after buying his own. Now, thanks to Huyen, I’m a proud owner of a Chillow as well. The verdict?

It’s awesome. Though the initial set-up was a little cumbersome, it requires very little maintenance after that. And boy oh boy, does it ever keep your pillow cold. It’s pretty impressive, really, how it can get so cold and stay so cold for such a long time, even in a relatively warm room.

It took me a day or two to get used to sleeping with the Chillow between my head and the pillow, but that’s all. It’s like sleeping on an ice cube and for those of us constant pillow-turners, it’s a nifty little invention that’s well worth the purchase (though I suppose the price has been hiked up pretty high compared to the manufacturing costs). If Chillow did an informercial, I’d want to be on it.

Now I’m just waiting for the full-body Chillow to be invented.

I contend the name "Chillow" should have been saved for some kind of pastry.

I'm speechless at the mere thought of it.

Maybe the Chillow is why your face is all blue...

I think that the first amendment appies even to things you don't like. If anyone doesn't like free speech, they can lump it.

Ryan, maybe he meant that if you don't like the First Amendment, you should buy a Chillow.

Since when did I become anti-American for owning a Chillow?

Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of a cold pillow: THESE are the things that every American strives for.

I just realized I never posted a Chillow Ping, even though my wife and I both have one.

The good: stays cold for long. Gets nice and soft after a few nights - the hardness was tough to deal with at first.

The bad: these things are fragile! My first one, out of the box, had a cut in its crease. Jeani's now has a puncture that can't be more than a pinhole-sized hole, and we'll have to get it replaced (grumble grumble.)

But it's really nice in a hot room. I proclaim this... the Summer of Chillow!

Forget the full body Chillow. Go for a BedFan. The best thing that ever happened to my electric bill and to summer in Texas!

What is this then?
