Selecting the correct size

Synthetic Down Pillow Inserts Weight Chart

  • Synthetic down pillows weigh about 2.5 times the weight of a traditional pillow.
  • Fiber is the most expensive part of a pillow, if you see a competitor selling a synthetic down pillow for slightly more than a traditional pillow I would be cautious of the type of filler they are using and if it really feels like down.
