CROWDFUNDING NEWS – I’ve reviewed many pillows over the years and although they all promise to be the most comfortable, most supportive, coolest pillows, they usually aren’t (for me). The U2 Pillow promised to no tossing and turning. Did it actually deliver on that promise? Keep reading to find out.
What is it?
The U2 Pillow is a memory foam pillow that can be customized for comfort and it rolls up for easy transport when you travel so you don’t have to subject yourself to sleeping on a lumpy hotel pillow.
Why do I like it?
I like the U2 Pillow because it’s customizable due to the 3 layers of material inside the machine-washable zippered cover. The folks at U2 sent me a pre-production sample of the U2 pillow so I could try one for myself and right away I thought it was too tall and I almost cast it aside. But then I realized that you can unzip the cover and remove one or more of the 3 layers to make the pillow the perfect height. Once I did that, I was in love and have been sleeping on the U2 Pillow every night since then. This pillow can go from a max of 4.7 inches tall to a minimum of 2.3 inches tall.
Trust me, when I say that I love the U2 Pillow because I am incredibly picky when it comes to pillows.
The U2 Pillow is extremely comfortable while also supporting your neck. Add that to the fact that you can easily take it with you when you travel (if you spring for the optional Pillow Capsule) makes it even better. But that’s not all that there is to like about this pillow. It also comes with a 7 – 70 night guarantee and a 5 year warranty.
Where can I find more info?
The U2 Pillow campaign ends on 7/22/20 and they are working towards their funding goal of $20,000. You can pre-order a U2 Pillow starting at $49. After the U2 campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in August 2020. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

Am I the only one who is constantly seeking the ‘cooler’ side of the pillow during the night? Memory foam pillows such as these are pretty useless in this regard. First and foremost, memory foam is just a warmer material (to wit, why do you think memory foam bed manufacturers are constantly trying new ways of cooling down their mattresses?) Secondly, being “structured”, they really only have two sides. If you’re getting too hot, you have to turn over the entire pillow – not sure I could do that without waking up. A pillow made of feather or other smaller ‘parts’ can be partially flipped, squished, etc. to give you a cool place to rest your head.
Most pillow reviews seem to judge a pillow solely by its height.
Thomas, you make a good point and some companies do make pillows with cool pads inside. For me personally, the height and firmness of a pillow is what I look for. I don’t have an issue with my head getting hot at night.
Darn you Julie. I follow your lead in pillows and so far agree with your selections. I placed a pledge and am looking forward to getting it.
I really like this one better than the last one I was using. I need to go add it to my favorites page!
Still waiting for mine.
I finally received my U2 pillow a couple of days ago. It is a keeper. I am still playing with the heights and low side/high side for the best fit. I base the success of the pillow by the number of times I wake up, and I wake up less with this one. My previous pillow was a Cushion Lab, also a U shape.
John, I’m still sleeping happily on mine!
