Quick Overview

Officially titled the “Carbon Series Cooling Pillow”, the XOcomfort Pillow is engineered to provide an exceptionally cool sleep experience. The pillow is designed with the brand’s proprietary XOcomfort Cooling Technology, which works to combat the heat build-up associated with traditional foam pillows and mattresses.

With a shredded, cross-chopped cooling memory foam and microfiber fill, the XOcomfort Pillow is customizable in both loft and firmness. Its adjustable construction makes it ideal for sleepers of different body mass indexes (BMIs) who sleep on their back, front, or stomach, in addition to those with neck and shoulder pain.

Rating

Excellent

What Buyers Say

As an adjustable pillow, customers appreciate the ability to remove or add filling to create desired firmness.

Category

Some pillows flatten out over time, and require constant fluffing in order to maintain a full, supportive shape.

Rating

Excellent

What Buyers Say

Customers report the XOcomfort Pillow can easily be molded to the head and neck, which is typical of shredded memory foam pillows.

Category

Temperature Neutrality

Rating

Very Good

What Buyers Say

Although the pillow is designed to be exceptionally cooling, some customers complain it falls short of this promise.

Category

Odor Potential

Criteria

Off-gassing is to be expected from most pillows, but some produce stronger, longer-lasting odors that can disrupt sleep.

Rating

Fair

What Buyers Say

Some customers report off-gassing odors due to the pillow’s thermal foam construction.

Category

Weight

Rating

Good

What Buyers Say

A few customers noted that the pillow heavier than other pillow brands they had tried.

Category

Ease of Cleaning

Criteria

Depending on the material, pillows may be machine washable or require more intensive cleaning, such as hand washing, spot cleaning, or professional (dry) cleaning.

Rating

Good

What Buyers Say

The removable cover can be unzipped, washed, and dried in a machine.

The XOcomfort pillow’s adjustable fill makes it an ideal choice for people who aren’t exactly sure what their loft needs are when buying a pillow. Instead of being stuck with one loft level that may not work, users can add or remove fill as needed to find the right fit for them. That means the majority of side, stomach, and back sleepers should be able to find a fill level that works for their individual sleep needs. To top it off, the pillow conforms well to the head and neck for excellent pressure relief and support.

A few things to to keep in mind with the XOcomfort pillow are its cooling capabilities and initial off-gassing odor. While the pillow is cool enough for some people, if you have a tendency to sleep hot most nights, we feel this pillow may not be cool enough for your needs. In addition, you can expect some initial off-gassing odor when you first unpackage your pillow, but that should go away in a few days or less.

What You Need to Know about the XOcomfort Pillow

Product Construction and Firmness

Engineered by self-proclaimed “mad scientists”, the XOcomfort Pillow is thoughtfully designed for cooling, comfort, and durability.

At the heart of the pillow’s construction is its XOcomfort Cooling carbon foam. While many foam mattresses and pillows tend to retain heat, the XOcomfort Cooling shredded memory foam is specially engineered to transfer heat away from the body. The cooling technology relies on “thermal pathways” that allow the heat to move through the filling and away from the sleeper.

The pillow’s interior features a blend of 85 percent memory foam with 15 percent thermal microfiber. The removeable, zippable cover is 100 percent polyester.
