Travel Duo Bed Pillow
The Travel Duo Bed Pillow maintains proper spinal alignment while keeping you comfortable in any sleep position. The Travel Duo Bed Pillow has an ingenious dual chamber to give you the best of both worlds – millet on one side and buckwheat on the other. Buckwheat hulls grip together under weight providing cozy, stable support. They allow ventilation providing you with a cool and dry pillow all night. Millet hulls fit together under weight and provide a dense, silky soft support. Hulls shift and adjust to cradle your head and neck with perfect pressure-relieving and passive support, even as you shift positions during sleep. Bucky uses only premium hulls and best of all, they are hypoallergenic, eco-friendly and the natural choice for healthy, restorative and ergonomically correct sleep. To personalize your comfort level, simply unzip the outer cover and inner liner to add or remove filling. The Travel Duo comes complete with a zippered, 100% cotton pillowcase. Made in USA.

Care: Remove pillowcase. Machine wash cold. No bleach. Tumble dry low. Do not wash hull filling. Do not microwave.

Size: 14" x 11"

Weight: 2.5 lbs.

Material: Pillowcase:100% Cotton, Liner: 100% Polyester, Filling: 50% Millet Hulls, 50% Buckwheat Hulls

Millet hulls are the outer husk of the millet seed. Millet is best known as bird seed in America but this tiny, nutritious grain is eaten daily by many cultures. Milling millet releases the half-spherical hulls from the seed. The hulls are smooth and durable, able to support the weight of your head without losing shape. Millet hulls are a good choice for those who have never owned a hull-filled pillow. They are quiet and slightly heat conserving. Like buckwheat, millet hulls are hypoallergenic.


Benefits of Millet Hulls:

  • Quiet
  • Dense but lightweight
  • Distribute body weight evenly
  • Feels smooth and silky in texture
  • Instantly mold to body contours
  • A recycled resource
  • Natural
  • Slightly warm and heat conserving

 

Caring for Millet Hulls:

  • Do not get millet hulls wet
  • Do not microwave millet hulls
  • Store in a cool, dry place

 


Buckwheat hulls are the durable outer husk of the groatsor seeds, produced by buckwheat plants (fagopyrum esculentum). We enjoy eating buckwheat as a grain, but for centuries the hulls have been a popular pillow filling in Asia. Bucky uses only premium pillow grade buckwheat. Under body weight, these hulls grip each other, providing stable, passive support and distributing weight evenly. Because this filling is not one mass like cotton or foam, it breathes, cooling with constant ventilation.


Benefits of Buckwheat Hulls:

  • Interlocking triangular shape
  • Cozy, stable body support
  • Lightweight, airy and cool
  • Scrunchy texture
  • Instantly mold to body contours
  • A recycled resource
  • Used to relieve headaches, neck pain, lower back pain, muscle tension, stress, sleeplessness and snoring


Caring for Buckwheat Hulls:

  • Do not get buckwheat hulls wet
  • Do not microwave buckwheat hulls
  • Store in a cool, dry place

  1. Don't leave home without it Review by GLP
    Overall Rating

    I love this pillow  and it's super supportive (and the firmness is adjustable by removing some of the hulls). I don't get on a plane without it (and have also actually used it in hotels too, especially when the pillows are too soft). It's not the tiniest travel pillow out there, but for the support, you can't beat it. Comes with a washable pillowcase. (Posted on 7/26/2013)

  2. Best natural neck pillow for side sleepers! Review by Patrick
    Overall Rating

    The duo millet & buckwheat Bucky pillow is by far THE best. Well suited for side sleepers and back sleepers as one can squish the pillow into whatever shape needed to sleep restfully. This is a flatter and smaller sized pillow (NOTE: not the very small travel pillow). Also has a nice padded pillowcase.  (Posted on 10/18/2012)
