    Yes we have two. I got them at half price when they were first on the market. They are quite good in my opinion however the accuracy of calling them bamboo is rather suspect. The bamboo content is a small percentage of the fabric the cover is made from. The pillow filling itself is just conventional foam as far as I can tell. At full price they are not cheap.

    Thanks. I thought what you say is the case - the only bamboo bit is in the cover. I agree they are not cheap.

    Bamboo pillow? Sounds a bit hard to me. Do you pair it with a bed of nails or what?

    Just memory foam inside a part bamboo cover.
    Can buy memory foam pillows for about $15.

    Or if you want to believe the hype from Brand Developers, pay $150.

    Depends on which ones you get. Theres some about that are claiming to be the Bambillo but are copiesand not as good.

    The mother in law got some from some place and said we could try them,while they were OK they were more foam than as advertised and the naming was spelt slightly different.( copies)

    We got ours from the legit place http://www.bambillopillow.co.nz/ 4 of them They are great. For ages Both myself and SWMBO were waking up with sore necks and still feeling tired, and SWMBO, her asthma is no where as bad after getting the legit item, after two night, try taking them away now and you'll be risking your arms No more headaches, great nights sleeps and totally different to previous.

    This has been a paid advertisement for Bambillo


    Seriously though they do exactly for us what they claim.

    You have to leave them once out the box over night to expand out fully as well as beat them a bit to losen up before first use.Theres no way in hell to get them back in the box unless you have a vacuum pump.

    AND they dont take normal size pillow cases, you need larger ones other wise they are to hard. (not allowed to mold to shape).
