Pacific Coast Feather Company ® is known for their uniquely designed pillows featured in many popular hotels. These pillow-in-pillow designs can often stump us as to what the difference is between some of their more popular products. Luckily, we have put together an easy guide for comparing all these pillows. These list from softest to firmest pillow.
Pacific Coast ® Double Down Surround ®-The inner chamber makes up 75% of the entire pillow and the outer makes up 25% of the entire pillow. The inner chamber is filled with 95% feather and 5% down while the outer chamber is filled with a minimum of 75% down.
Support level: Medium soft support
Percentages = 75% inner 25% outer
Pacific Coast ® Tria ®-Has a triple chambered design. The inner chamber is split into three chambers (see picture) for even distribution. The Inner pillow takes up 83% of the entire pillow and is filled with 95% feather 5% down. The Outer chamber makes up 17% of the entire pillow and is filled with a minimum 75% down.

In some cases, the specs of the Pacific Coast ® Pillows sold on Pillows.com are the same as some of the most popular hotels. However, sometimes the specs may vary. There are a few tricks that hotels use to keep their pillows nice and fluffy.
Pillow protectors: Some hotels will use 2 pillow protectors on their pillows, which keeps the pillows fluffier in the night. They will also sometimes stuff a pillow in a smaller pillow protector (ex. super standard pillow in a standard size pillow protector).
Washings: Hotel pillows are often softer than a brand new pillow. This is because hotel pillows have been washed frequently, which causes the pillow to break down and become softer. Hotel pillows may also appear smaller since they have been shrinked from washings.
We hope that this info guides you in buying the perfect pillow for you!
