Our Sobakawa Pillow Review

The first thing we noticed when opening our Sobakawa pillow was the size. Their “standard” Sobakawa is smaller than a typical “standard” pillow. The next “feature” that became immediately apparent was a plastic/chemical smell. We then had several testers try out the pillow, and below are some of their observations:

  • Firmness – The Sobakawa pillow is a firm pillow. If you like soft pillows, you may not like it.
  • Odor – A “chemical” smell is quite noticeable upon removing the Sobakawa from the packaging. Although this did dissipate over time, a couple of our testers objected to “getting used to” an unpleasant odor. Others did not find the smell to be a problem.
  • Comfort – The overall consensus is that the Sobakawa is comfortable. Satisfaction depends largely on the preference of the consumer. Those liking flat or soft pillows were least impressed.
  • Cool Retention – The feature most disputed by our testers is the claim that the Sobakawa pillow stays cool all night. This was uniformly rejected by our testers.
  • Size – A “standard” Sobakawa pillow is about the size of a travel pillow. One tester suggested that the size seemed better suited for use as a back pillow while driving.
  • Washer safe? The instructions are contradictory. One section states, “Do not place pillow in washer or dryer” yet in another place it states, “Machine washable.”

Your satisfaction with the Sobakawa pillow will depend largely on if you find it to be comfortable or not. Everyone has a different idea of what the perfect pillow is, so some may find the Sobakawa to the the answer to their sleep problems, while others may not. Those preferring firm pillows may be the most satisfied, while consumers who like pillows that are large or very soft may not like the product.

Bottom Line

Because the Sobakawa Cloud Pillow is at Bed, Bath, and Beyond and other stores, you may want to go give it a try in person before buying. If the firmness is acceptable to you, it may be a welcomed addition to your bedroom.
