I remember a long, long time ago when I was a kid, my mom brought me over some reading pillows (I remember it was a zebra print one). I have no idea if they were supposed to be for reading or what, but they turned out to be perfect for sleeping with my head and back on the same pillow. Then I got older and they were no longer needed for sleeping, so I threw them in the garbage. Now this mittagong mattress pillow seeks to give your head, back, waist, legs, etc. the support it needs.

The manufacturer claims that the extra long and "thick" arms provide the support for your elbows, thereby allowing you to extend your arms and relieve soreness from that position.

Also, the extra long pillow arms are raised "to support your wrist". The manufacturer also states that you can use the side pocket to keep your glasses! The pillow has a washable removable cover.

The pillow also offers a refund guarantee within the first 30 days AND a full one year warranty. There is a 30 day money back guarantee that is valid. Some people mentioned that the pillow retained a musty smell, although that is not mentioned in the product description. Some people mentioned that the pillow lost its shape after washing. This doesn't seem to bother some people but would be a concern to others.

Overall, this is a comfortable pillow that has adequate back and neck support. Its temperature pillow is hypo-allergenic and is appropriate for sensitive skin. If you are looking for quick warmth and great neck support this could be the pillow for you.
