What is Contour Cloud Cool Air Edition Pillow?It claims to be the new 3D mesh, breathable, ventilated orthopedic pillow that claims to wick away perspiration and body heat. This pillow is the “Cool Air” edition of the much famous and acclaimed Contour Cloud Pillow manufactured by CONTOUR LIVING.
The pillow is also called “Contour Cloud Cool Air Edition Pillow“, “Contour Cloud Cool Air Pillow” or simply “Contour Cool Air Pillow“.
How does Contour Cloud Cool Air Pillow work?Our body radiates heat and the head is the warmest part of the body. The fabric of the pillows (fillings and pillow cover) absorb and retain the heat radiated by the body. This causes the pillows to get “hot” causing disturbance and inconvenience to the sleeper. Contour Air Pillow claims to defeat the “head heat” by ventilation.
Breathing ability of the pillows is a natural property of the memory foam used in the pillow. Open-Cell polyurethane foam used in the Contour Air Pillow features many tiny openings. In a nutshell the “open cells” of the foam allow air to flow freely (relatively) from the pillow to the surrounding. The “open-cell” structure of the foam used in the Contour Air Pillow allows absorption and release of moisture freely.
Ventilation is a design that features small man-made “punch-holes” in the foam of the pillow to further facilitate dissipation of the heat.
What foam is used in the Contour Air Pillow?Contour Air Pillow uses “High Resilience Foam” or HR-Foam.
Is Contour Cool Air’s Ventilation same as its Breathability?Ventilation is attributed to the “holes” in the Contour Cloud Cool Air Edition Pillow while breathability is the attribute of the material used in the pillow.
Contour Cloud Cool Air Pillow REVIEWThe pillow is aptly named “Contour Cool AIR” to stress on the features and benefits. Lets analyze each word in the Contour Cloud Cool Air Pillow.
Contour – We often see the word “Contour” associated with pillows. We have had many “contour pillows” in the past too. So what is CONTOUR after all and how is it related to a pillow? A contour stands for the outline, form or shape of an object. A Contour Pillow features a special design that fits the “contours” of head and neck ergonomically. While regular pillows have uniform shape. The peculiar shape of the contour pillow supports neck as well as the head according to their shape offering more comfort.
Cool – The Contour Air Pillow facilitates free movement of air hence it remains cooler than other non-breathable pillows. Hence the word “Cool”.
Air – The word “Air” is used to focus on two points – i) Air moves freely in and out of the Contour Air Pillow and also the High Resilience Foam used in the pillow is very soft like air.

The Design of the Contour Air Pillow3D Mesh Layer – There is nothing rocket science in the word 3D Mesh Layer. It is just a jargon used to explain the breathable outer “mesh” layer of the pillow. The Contour Cloud Cool Air Edition Pillow features three parts – The contour pillow with punch-holes, The outer mesh and the pillow over. The word “3D” the design of the Contour Air Pillow allows the air to flow in all the directions, side-ways as well as up and below.
Is Contour Cloud Cool Air Pillow an Orthopedic Pillow?It has become a fashion to call contour pillows as orthopedic pillows. The term “Orthopedic pillow” is coined by the health and sleep industry to make their pillows and sleep products sound therapeutic and curative. So all contour pillows are orthopedic. It does not mean that the Contour Cloud Cool Air Pillow is prescribed or approved by physicians. Don’t assume that this pillow will free you from neck or back pain. The chance are very high that Contour Cloud Cool Air Pillow may give you neck pain. If you have neck pain then consult your physician.
Is Contour Cool Air really like “sleeping on air”?Nope. “Sleeping on air” is just a marketing slogan and nothing more.
Contour Cloud Cool Air Edition Pillow Tests
In the infomercial video, they mention about a heat test where the Contour Cloud Cool Air Pillow supposedly reduces the temperature by 15 degree. This is pure balderdash. Such tests are conducted by the manufacturer to promote the product. We could believe such tests only if they were performed by a neutral competent authority. You need not believe such claims.

Paid reviews have a become an essential part of marketing. We buyers don’t even realize that they are paid reviews and get sucked into buying the claims. The Contour Cool Air reviews on the official website are concocted by the promoters. The actors in the video get paid to “act” according to the “script”. It is not necessary they are their personal views. So as a buyer you should not trust these reviews.
