nice one!Apr 07, 2011
Very nice zafu. One point I wanted to make -- I found that this was way overstuffed for my personal taste. This is not at all a problem, there is a concealed zipper under the handle part. Clip the restraining thread that keeps the zipper closed, spread out some newspaper (an important step!) and remove some of the stuffing until it's about where you want it. You can save the stuffing in a ziplock bag or discard. Better overstuffed than understuffed, certainly :)
Well made, good material and good construction. I do a fair amount of sewing and have dealt with many zafu, so I've got a good basis for comparison. I'd completely recommend getting this one.

Excellent ZafuMar 27, 2010
By Cathy B. Mcclellan
Very comfortable -- no need to 'break it in'. Nice, solid weight thanks to the hulls, carrying handle is very convenient. Excellent product.

Better than expectedFeb 17, 2012
By Joseph Skinner
I was looking for something that would allow me to take a comfortable meditation posture without costing an arm and leg. Since I am over 60, this is a bit of a challenge. This fulfilled my expectations and exceeded it. The ability to adjust it by taking out the buckwheat is wonderful. You don't have to take out much at all to make a big difference, so be careful at first. This product is a winner.

Too firm, your butt may go numbJan 09, 2013
I bought this cushion to start practicing meditation once again. I remembered from many years back that I had used a round thick cushion that helped me avoid my legs from getting numb. So this cushion looked similar and the reviews suggested that people thought it was comfortable. Unfortunately, the cushion is too firm. It feels like sitting on the floor with no mat. My butt has gone numb every time I tried using it. After reading a review that said you could take out some of the buckwheat to make it more comfortable, I adjusted it twice but still got the same numbing result. I'm returning this cushion and will look for some softer, thick option.

worth the moneyMay 25, 2012
By H. Lee
I purchased with Jumbo Zabuton Meditation Mat, Black and I am very pleased with quality of these products. I am 6 foot 2 inches tall and I find size is perfect for me. I can meditate much longer and easier than before.
