If you are a small person a smaller pillow will work better for you. Maggie is a small person, and likes the ComfySleep Classic. She says "If the pillow is too big my head is at an uncomfortable position and I have to remove most of the buckwheat hulls. It's better to start with a smaller pillow."

On the other hand Eric is much taller, with broad shoulders. He sleeps on his side, and the larger ComfySleep Standard provides the support he needs. He also holds a pillow while sleeping to help support his upper shoulder and back.

What we packed - camping with a buckwheat pillow

We knew that this past weekend might be the last camping trip of the year. The days are still sunny and warm in western New York. The nights weren't too cold. And the leaves are bursting into color. So, contingents from both ComfyComfy in both US and Canada packed up and went camping.

If there is ever a time to bring your buckwheat pillow with you, camping is it.

We are not extreme campers by any means. Camping includes a car full of stuff, so piling in a buckwheat pillow (or two) isn't hard. We brought ComfyTravel pillows with us since their smaller size fits better in a small tent. A good, supportive pillow makes a huge difference when sleeping on an air mattress and lumpy ground!


Other essentials for 'roughing it' in the great outdoors (besides our pillows) include: a backpack with lots of pockets, a long sleeve shirt to keep off the bugs when the sun goes down, a multipurpose tool for whittling down sticks for s'more, a headlamp and a refillable water bottle. We live in the city, so a big draw of camping is spending time outside in the hammock. On this trip our campsite bordered a cornfield and we watched the setting sun. And then the milky way, which you can't even see from in the city.

How are you spending the last few warm days of the season?

Buckwheat pillow shapes


We make our buckwheat pillows in two shapes: cylindrical and rectangular. All our pillows can be adjusted and customized to your unique body, but there are a few distinguishing features that may make one shape preferable over the other to help you get a good nights sleep.


ComfySleep Pillows

Our four sizes of rectangular pillows differ by size and amount of buckwheat filling.

Good for:

  • those who sleep on their back or side
  • those who do not shift position when they sleep


ComfyNeck pillows

 These pillows are more compact than our rectangular pillows, so the buckwheat is less prone to shifting in the night.

Good for:

  • those who shift position in their sleep
  • side sleepers with broad shoulders
  • taking with you when you travel

Traveling with a buckwheat pillow

It can be difficult to get a good nights sleep while traveling.

Visiting new places inevitably means strange pillows and mattresses that just aren't the same as home.

We spent the last month traveling in Germany. Our ComfyTravel buckwheat pillows were one of the first things we packed! We knew they would make sleeping more restful and help keep our bodies from aching on long flights. We used our pillows all the time: on the transatlantic flight, on the train from Frankfurt to Berlin, and even when we stopped at hotels for the night during a bike trip along the Lahn River.

The ComfyTravel was small enough to fit easily in our carry-on bags, but big enough to provide ample support while sleeping. Each pillow comes with a pillowcase to protect it from the rigors of traveling.

Happy Sleeping!
