Parachute was founded by design enthusiast Ariel Kaye back in 2014. She launched this mattress company with the intention of having a simple one-stop shop for consumers who want high-quality and affordable bedding and bedding accessories. 

Parachute products are designed with the help of expert Portuguese craftspeople and American mattress makers. Every single piece is designed and manufactured with high quality materials and a clean and modern aesthetic, so that they not only feel good, but they also look good. From mattress toppers to comforters, parachute products are made for quality and versatility. They also accommodate a wide range of sleeping positions. 

For this review, we’ll be going over the Parachute Down Pillow. There are many aspects of this plush pillow that have made it a prime choice for sleepers everywhere. Made with premium, all-natural European white down and a 100% sateen cotton pillowcase, this cooling pillow wicks away heat, encourages air circulation and provides support for your head and neck, no matter how you sleep. If you sleep hot, check out our Best Cooling Mattresses article to learn more.

Another feature of Parachute’s down pillow is that you can choose from three different firmness options: soft, medium, and firm. The soft pillow option features sunken plushness and is one of the best pillows for stomach sleepers because it allows the neck to rest in a neutral position throughout the night.

The medium firmness option is softer, but with a medium amount of fluff. We recommend this type of pillow for back sleepers. Finally, the firm option is the most dense and supportive, and it’s recommended for people who sleep on their sides and need the extra height to keep their spine aligned and to prevent neck pain and back pain.

What Makes the Parachute Pillow Stand Out

  • Unlike traditional memory foam pillows, this pillow is made of 85% down and 15% down feather, making it softer and more cushioned than pure feather pillow options.
  • The pillow  is available in two sizes and three different firm densities: soft, medium and firm. These three versions provide the right amount of comfort and neck support for back, stomach and side sleepers respectively.
  • You can try out the Parachute Down Pillow for up to 60 days to see if it suits you. If you’re unhappy during that time period, you can return it for a full refund. 
  • The pillow is protected by a 100% sateen cotton cover. This cotton shell is breathable so that body heat doesn’t become trapped. It’s machine-washable, making cleaning simple. .
  • A down pillow’s fill power, or fluffiness, indicates how much air an ounce of the down can trap and insulate, and it is measured on a scale of 300 to 900. The Parachute Pillow’s fill power is 750, which is the ideal amount of insulation for a bed pillow to  provide optimal support and comfort.

What is the Parachute Pillow Made Of?

European White Down

The Parachute Pillow is made of high-quality, premium all-natural European white down, which consists of 85% down and 15% down and feather fibers.

For people who are unfamiliar with down, it’s important to understand the difference between down and pure feather. Whereas feathers contain a harder quill shaft with fibers that join together at the side, down comes from the undercoating of geese and ducks, and it doesn’t contain the stiff quill shaft. That means that a duck down or goose down pillow may provide an overall better sleeping experience.
