Bear Pillow Reviews

Written by Tuck Staff

Bear Pillow Reviews

The Bottom Line.

  • Made from aerated, single-piece foam and featuring mesh corner panels, the Bear Pillow promotes good airflow and sleeps very cool.
  • Great shape retention with minimal fluffing needed.
  • The Bear Pillow has a ‘Medium’ feel, conforming closely to the sleeper’s head and neck for good pain and pressure-point relief.

Quick Summary

Quick Summary

Also known for its mattresses and other sleep products, Bear offers the Bear Pillow. This pillow features a single piece of aerated ‘Loft-X’ polyfoam contained within a polyester-blend cover. The cover is equipped with mesh corner panels, which help air circulate through the interior of the pillow. The Bear Pillow is considered ‘Medium’ in terms of firmness, and has a 5.5″ loft.

Like many other competing pillows with single-piece foam cores, the Bear Pillow offers close conforming to the sleeper’s head, neck, and shoulders. This can alleviate tension and pressure points that develop, and also improve spinal alignment for side sleepers. The mesh panels and aerated foam also allow the pillow to sleep fairly cool, especially compared to other models with similar construction. It also retains a full shape fairly well and requires little to no fluffing.

The pillow is available in Queen and King sizes. Its price-point is on par with the average single-piece foam pillow. Bear offers free shipping within the contiguous U.S. and flat delivery rates for customers in Alaska and Hawaii. The Bear Pillow is backed by a 30-night sleep trial and a two-year warranty.

Read on to learn more about the Bear Pillow in terms of construction, pricing, and performance ratings. We’ll also provide an overview of Bear’s shipping, return, and warranty policies, along with some similar pillow recommendations.

Now let’s see how the Bear Pillow has been rated for durability, conforming ability, odor potential, and other performance factors.

Our ratings below are based on verified customer and owner experiences, as well as intensive product research and analysis.

As you can see, the Bear Pillow excelled in a few key areas. Temperature neutrality is a notable strength, given that single-piece foam pillows tend to sleep hot; the Bear Pillow mitigates this issue with aerated foam and mesh panel components.

The pillow also conforms very closely to alleviate aches and pains. However, the pillow is somewhat time-consuming to clean and may be too heavy for some owners (especially in a King size). The Bear Pillow is not particularly moldable, either.

What Type of Sleeper is Best Suited to the Bear Pillow?

A sleeper’s experience with a pillow often depends on his or her body weight and preferred sleep position.

Based on owner experiences and product analysis, the Bear Pillow has earned the following ratings from sleepers with different weights and position preferences.

For more information on sleeping positions please see our pillow guides for side, back, and stomach sleepers.
