In-depth Comparison (2023): Tempur-Pedic Tempur-Cloud Pillow vs. Pacific Coast Double DownAround Pillow

I tested 14 different pillows over the course of six months. I slept on each pillow for at least five nights each. I rated each pillow based on how comfortable it was to sleep on over an extended period of time, whether or not the construction seemed high quality to me, and my take on suitability for different body types and sleep positions. Here is an in-depth comparison of the Tempur-Pedic Tempur-Cloud Pillow and Pacific Coast Double DownAround Pillow.

The Tempur-Pedic Tempur-Cloud Pillow is a solid memory foam pillow, which means the loft isn't adjustable. The Tempur-Pedic memory foam is also incredibly soft. For side-sleepers and back-sleepers, this memory foam will likely be too soft in my opinion. For stomach sleepers, who might prefer a thinner and softer pillow, the Tempur-Pedic works perfectly.

The memory foam is incredibly soft, and my head sinks into it.

The quality of the memory foam is noticeable. When compressed all the way down, the Tempur-Pedic memory foam takes about 3 seconds to bounce back to the original shape, as if it were bouncing back in slow motion.

The foam is much softer compared to the Weekender and Pillow Cube, which are also solid memory foam pillows. I measure all three of these solid memory foam pillows at a 5-inch starting loft. When I lay my head down, the Tempur-Pedic compresses halfway while the Weekender compresses only slightly and the Pillow Cube barely has any noticeable compression, so the Tempur-Pedic ends up effectively thinner. The compression provides a very comfortable sinking feeling for people who enjoy that aspect of a pillow.

I've slept on the Tempur-Pedic pillow in all three positions. As a side-sleeper and back-sleeper, this pillow does not provide enough support for my preferences. My head just sinks down. However, this pillow feels like magic when sleeping on my stomach. I usually hug the pillow vertically so that half my body is on top of the pillow. The Tempur-Pedic will compress more for my body than my head, which is lighter, and the result is a very comfortable incline.

The pillow has a removable cover that feels well-constructed. Where the Weekender and Pillow Cube covers are thin by comparison, the Tempur-Pedic pillow cover is best described as substantial. Based on the feel of the memory foam and the feel of the pillow cover, I'd consider the Tempur-Pedic to have a higher quality construction compared to the Weekender and Pillow Cube.

I highly recommend this option for stomach sleepers. Side-sleepers and back-sleepers, though, need to be aware that this pillow won't have the support they might expect. I see mixed reviews for this pillow, and I suspect it's because the five-star reviews are more likely to be stomach sleepers who prefer a thinner pillow while the one-star reviews are more likely to be side-sleepers and back-sleepers.

The Pacific Coast Double DownAround Pillow is a down and feather pillow that uses a double-chamber design like the Chamberlain Down Dual-Chamber Pillow. However, I see a huge difference in quality.

Though the Pacific Coast Double DownAround pillow has an outer chamber of down, I can feel the quills inside the pillow I have when I lay my head down.

Most notably, even though the Pacific Coast pillow uses a dual-chamber design that keeps feathers in the inner chamber and down in the outer layer, I can still feel the quills from the feathers when I lie down. In contrast, the Chamberlain Down pillow feels like sleeping on air because the down layer feels more robust. I suspect this is because of a difference in the size of down clusters used by each pillow. The Pacific Coast website lists the down fill power, which measures the size of the down clusters, at 550 in the Double DownAround Pillow. The Chamberlain website lists the fill power at 600+, which means that the down clusters are larger in the Chamberlan Down Dual-Chamber Pillow. Larger clusters tend to be better at trapping air and providing loft.

In the Pacific Coast pillow I have, feathers are sticking out of the stitching along the seams, as shown in the picture below. This gives me low confidence in the construction quality of the pillow.

The Pacific Coast pillow I received has feathers sticking out of the seams.

Another consideration is that I can hear a rustling noise inside the Pacific Coast pillow I have when I push down on it. The noise is relatively loud, and I'd compare it to the crinkling of a plastic grocery bag in terms of loudness and nature. The sound appears to originate from the inner chamber. Since a pillow is something I put my ear against when I sleep, the last adjective I'd want to use to describe it is "noisy." I can hear a crinkling in the Puredown pillow and Chamberlain Down pillow fabrics if I rustle them and concentrate on listening, but I wouldn't consider noise to be an issue for those two pillows. The Pacific Coast pillow I have is much louder to my ears and in a completely different league of noise.

The Pacific Coast Double DownAround Pillow comes in a Soft, Medium, and Firm version on their website as of my time of purchase. I ordered the pillow from Amazon, and I didn't see the firmness specified in the listing when I purchased. I ended up receiving the Soft version, which I prefer to use for stomach-sleeping. It's possible that the Medium and Firm versions can work for back-sleeping and side-sleeping, but based on my experience with the perceived construction quality of the Soft pillow, I don't intend to try the other options.

Finally, it's worth noting that the Pacific Coast pillow, like all down and feather pillows, would require regular fluffing to restore the loft. Because down and feather pillows work by trapping air, which escapes after an extended period of sleeping, down and feather pillows benefit from a fluff that pumps air back in.

Picking the right pillow can be important. I did all the research here to make the process easier. I hope that this blog helps you as you make your decision.
