This is the first time I've ever owned or even had a need for a neck pillow, but I have to say this thing is amazing! I really don't have a basis for comparison, so I don't know what other neck pillows are like, but this one will probably always be my favorite. The fabric is soft and cool, but not a cotton soft. More of a cool, nylon soft. It's difficult to describe. There are tiny semi-soft beads (really tiny) inside the pillow that make it "mushy" as well as firm. I really don't know how it does that. When using it for my neck on a long flight, I was able to squeeze it here and there in order to move the "beads" around to where I needed the most firmness versus softness. I often caught myself squeezing it just to play with it when it wasn't even behind my neck haha. Either way, the pillow is great. I'd buy another one in a heartbeat.
