Big Cozy Pillow Protectors
I love the pillows and I love the oversize. The only reason they don't get five stars is I can't find pillow cases for them. You should have those available, at least in white. I can get the pillow covers, just not the cases.

Let me start by saying this isn't my first rodeo with this company. Both me, and my daughter have bought feather beds. We've she's also bought pillows, and I have bought 2 throw blankets, to which we love them all.
This go around I bought the Big Cozy pillow, and another throw, that was on sale. When I got out of my car tonight, I almost had a panic attack when I saw the condition of the shipping box. It's raining here in "Sunny California" and the box was dropped in an area that wasn't very well protected. Plus, there was a huge gash in the side.
I brought the box in the house to open it, I stuck my hand in the slit that was in the side of the box. Sure enough, I could feel the contents. I opened the box fully prepared to find the contents wet and possibly ripped due to the size of the slit. When I cut the box open, I suddenly remembered the company I was dealing with. They package their products in heavy duty plastic zip up bags, like the kind really good dry cleaners use for blankets or comforters. That is, if they're a good dry cleaner, they use them. I shouldn't have been amazed, but I still was.
This company goes the distance to make sure their customers receive great products, and that they arrive in perfect condition. I'm still waiting for the cover for the Big Cozy. It's back ordered, so I have to wait.
This pillow definitely fits its name. It's really big, and feels incredibly comfortable. I can't wait to use it tonight. It's a nice way to end the week, with a Big Cozy pillow to lay my head on.
One small snag is that they only offered the cover in white, and the site says that they come in different colors. White would not have been my choice, but that's all the choice I was given.
I wouldn't hesitate to buy more products from this company. Every item I've bought has been the highest of quality. Thank you, Pacific Coast! I have no doubt we will do business again.
A very happy customer!

This is my second pillow protector for my Big Cozy that I bought in 2007. The original cover is still in good shape and has retained its color well. I also like the "invisible" zipper that allows the cover to fit snugly, as this pillow is moved often. The zipper is in great shape because I knew how to care for it, i.e., never hyper extend it and wash with zipper partially closed.

LOVE THE PILLOW BUT HATE THE PROTECTORS. i, LIKE SOMEONE ELSE WROTE , HAD TO CUT THE PILLOW PROTECTOR OFF THE PILLOW BECAUSE OF THE ZIPPER. iT GOT STUCK AND I COULDN'T GET IT OFF. THESE PEOPLE REALLY NEED TO ADDRESS THE SITUATION. ALSO, THEY NEED TO OFFER MORE COLORS. I HAD THE TAUPE COLOR AND I CAN'T GET IT NOW.

Outstanding for the price
I wish they would offer a higher quality cover for the cozy pillow but for the price they are wonderful. I have a front load washer and I wash them inside out and have no problems with the zippers. I don't want the metal zipper tag banging around or getting caught on something. So I'm happy with mine and I've had three for a couple of years.

Pillow protector zippers broken 4x now!
First off, I have to say I love the Big Cozy pillows. However, the quality of the pillow covers is really poor. The zippers break after a couple of washings. I credit Pacific Coast with replacing one of the covers, but how many times do I have deal with this issue? I'm considering having custom covers made. Pacific Coast - please address this issue!

2+ years later, and still happy
I bought this pillow protector after a lo-o-o-o-ng search for something to down-proof a large vintage pillow. It's 50+ years old, and probably wasn't a high-quality item even when new. But it's a family item, so I kept searching. I had tried at least 6 or 7 other fabrics or protectors; they all let dozens of sharp little feathers poke through. I was about to give up when I found the Pacific Coast Big Cozy Pillow Protector.
The pillow and its protector get daily hard use. My husband lies on the floor to watch TV (go figure!) and uses the pillow under his head. The kids sit on it. Sometimes it graduates to the couch, as a super thick pillow propped behind an ailing family member. It gets pummeled, and tossed, and bent into all sorts of shapes. Despite the unconventional use and wear, the protector has held up.
Every so often, I remove the decorative cover and the pillow protector to clean them. The inside of the pillow protector is always covered with a layer of feathers that poked through the mattress ticking on the pillow but were stopped by the protector.
I am sorry for everyone else who has had trouble with this product. At this point, though, if I had problems with the zipper, I think that I would take the pillow protector to an alterations shop or dry cleaner and ask them to put a new zipper in, rather than give up this hard-working case.

I purchased a Big Cozy Pillow Protecter and the zipper broke after two or three washings. I no longer have the receipt so I am unable to send it back. This is the SECOND time this has happened. I am saddened that this good of a company provides such a poor quality pillow cover
