It’s true – the Tempur-Cloud Breeze Dual Cooling pillow and Bear pillow do look similar upon first glance. They’ve both got a strong traditional shape thanks to their solid foam fillings and a strong blue and white design on each. Their covers are removable and can be easily washed and dried.

You Might Choose…

Tempur-Cloud If…

  • You have a larger body frame. The Tempur-Cloud is a sizeable pillow. It is 19″ wide and 6.4″ tall, making it a better fit for people who have larger body frames and those who want a medium-firm level of support from a foam pillow.
  • You like the feel of memory foam. The pillow filling is memory foam (with a tiny bit of gel pad in there to keep you cool). Your head will sink into the pillow and it will be slow to respond, just like memory foam.

Bear If…

  • You like the feel of latex. The Bear pillow is filled with a solid piece of ventilated Loft-X foam, which is a hybrid of memory foam and latex foam. You won’t get the same slow response as memory foam. Instead, it will have a bouncier (and lighter) overall feel.
  • You want to try the pillow out. The pillow comes with a 100-night trial period, so you can decide if it’s a good fit for you. The Tempur-Cloud has a no return policy so once you buy it you’re pretty committed to it.

Either If…

  • You sleep hot. Both pillows really focus on their cooling features. They both have special materials in their fillings and covers to make them cool to the touch. Tempur-Cloud has a Tempur-Breeze gel layer on both sides of the pillow and Bear’s cover is made with their Double Ice fabric.
  • You sleep on your side. Both pillows are pretty significant, they’re fairly heavy, long and have profiles that are 5″ and 6.4″. That kind of loft and support makes them a better fit for side sleepers, who typically need more firmness and support than back and stomach sleepers.

Overall

Side sleepers who tend to run hot will probably like either of these pillows, thanks to their design features and solid foam cores. Back and side sleepers may want to lean towards Bear and individuals with larger body frames who like support may want to go towards the Tempur-Cloud.

Only the Bear pillow offers any sort of trial or return policy (100 nights).
