I’ve got a quick review for you today of something that I actually got for my 10 year old son for me to review. He loves the Chillow for whatever reason, the Chillow is this water filled mat that is supposed to keep you cool at night, you put it under your pillow and it pulls the heat from your head essentially. We’ve gone through several of these as they kept getting holes in them and leaking water everywhere, I felt bad as he liked it a lot so we kept buying them for him and I kept repairing them but something needed to be done. Today for review I’ve got something similar to the Chillow but there’s no water, it’s a gel inside of it and it’s a cloth covered mat instead of the vinyl that the Chillow is. He’s been using this mat and he loves it, more than the Chillow. Read on to learn more..

The mat comes in a nice sturdy box for protection and it has information and pictures on the front along with usage instructions on the back.
The instructions are on the outside of the box so inside you’ll only find the mat itself and a cloth cover for storage.
The mat is 22 by 12.5 inches in dimensions and maybe .25 inches in thickness and it’s covered in a cloth material, it’s soft and seems very comfortable to lie on. The mat is sealed, you don’t have to do anything at all to use it, inside of the mat is a gel making it squishy and soft but it won’t leak since it’s not a liquid. Before the Frosty Pillow Gel Mat arrived my son was using the Chillow and it’s made differently, half is vinyl and the other half is cloth and you have to fill it with water and it tends to bunch up and need to be flattened out and sometimes even more water added to it.
They do include a protective cloth cover for the gel mat for storage but it doesn’t cover the whole thing as you’d expect it to. Maybe it’s me but I was expecting it to cover the entire mat, one side is open for whatever reason. It’s not a big deal, just something I noticed and would like to see changed.
My son is very happy with the Frosty Pillow Gel Mat, he likes it more than the Chillow. It’s actually slightly larger than the Chillow, it covers most of his pillow as the Chillow didn’t since it’s smaller.
To quote my son: “It feels really good, better than the Chillow.”
I should note that the Frosty Mat seems cooler than the Chillow, I felt both of them at the same time and Frosty Mat felt cooler to the touch and I didn’t even put it in the refrigerator.
You can flip the Frosty Mat and we don’t have to worry about it leaking or filling it with water, it’s much better choice overall if you want or need something like this.
+Large size, covers almost whole pillow
+Nothing to do to get it ready
