A pillow that seems to have come from the future that is adjustable to match nearly everyone's sleeping habits? In this Simba hybrid pillow review, we take a closer look at what makes this Simba pillow worth a buy or not.
Simba has cemented their brand as amongst the best in the United Kingdom through its Simba Hybrid Mattress, will the pillow be equally as successful?
Let's find out, below is the full Simba hybrid pillow review (SUMMARY AT THE END).
Simba Hybrid Pillow Construction
The so-called reinvented pillow was specifically made to be able to be used by anyone regardless if you a side, back or stomach sleeper, sort of like a tailored pillow just for you. Simba spent over a year in designing and prototyping to try and achieve the most innovative pillow.
The stand out features are the nanocube technology in the centre of the pillow which allows you to adjust the height of the pillow and previously Simba used OUTLAST® technology which was originally developed for NASA (yes, the space agency), but has now created their own Stratos® technology.
An interesting fact is that Simba Hybrid pillow is vegan-friendly since the fill does not include animal products, rather it is made with recycled materials certified by the Global Recycling Standard. We will speak about this in more detail in the pillow layers.
The Simba pillow is divided into two halves. The top half incorporates innovative Stratos® technology, which utilises phase change materials that absorb, store and release heat for optimal thermal comfort. The technology is designed to absorb your body heat to cool you down if you get too hot at night yet also release heat to warm you up during the colder nights.
For this Simba Hybrid pillow, Simba has thought of everything. If you look closely at the cover there is a grey stripe and a blue stripe, that is there to indicate which side includes the Stratos® technology (blue strip side).
The bottom half of the cover is made from BCI sourced cotton. The Better Cotton Initiative is a programme for cotton production that supports and encourages better standards of sustainability. This includes reducing environmental impact and bettering the lives of cotton producers. This cotton is also breathable and a natural cellulosic fibre.
In our opinion, it is one of the best-looking covers we have reviewed, the softcover gives it a luxury look and the ventilation strip gives it a more futuristic look but also makes it very practical. Speaking of practicality, the Simba hybrid pillow also is removable and machine washable at up to 40 degrees. The Simba pillow cover is really impressive, what more would you want in a cover?
Simba Hybrid Pillow Layers
This unique pillow is made from 3 layers, one is fully customisable.
- Top Aerelle® layer gives it that extra coolness. This layer makes the pillow very soft and the mineral-enriched fibre helps disperse the heat. This layer is also hypoallergenic for those prone to allergies.
- The middle layer is filled with multiple nanocubes. The nanocubes are made from visco-elastic open-cell memory foam which is perfect for contouring to your head. The nanocube area is aided by the meshed side panel to allow easy airflow to keep the temperature regulated. What also makes this layer special is that you can add or remove the cubes to get the perfect height which you like.
- Finally, the comfort fill layer adds comfort and softness, durability and also happens to be anti-allergy.
Simba has always done things differently to the competition and the pillow is no different. The layered mix is a great combination.
Simba Pillow Support & Comfort
As previously mentioned the height of the Simba hybrid pillow is
Although the nanocubes do a great job in supporting the head this cannot be compared to other foam-based pillows, the Simba pillow would have a more of a wrapping and comforting feeling whereas foam pillows are sturdier and firm. If you do like a softer cushioning pillow the Simba pillow may be a better option.
Below is the bag the pillow comes with to store your excess nanocubes. This is just another testament to the lengths they are willing to go to not only supply a great pillow but an extraordinary experience with the Simba brand.
