A birthday present for my sister, who just adores it . .

I'm new to zazen and thus to zafus, so I didn't quite know what to expect. Shipping was very quick. The zafu is constructed well, covered with a soft but strong fabric. A handle along the perimeter conceals a zipper and ZafuStore.com label. The zafu came completely stuffed with buckwheat hulls to the point that it had almost no give at all when I first sat on it. This, combined with its rather tall height, made for an uncomfortable first sitting experience. I've since removed quite a bit of filling and I now have a comfortable seat that molds itself to my body. I've saved the extra buckwheat hulls in case they are needed after a break-in period. All in all, I'm happy with my purchase and with ZafuStore.com.

I bought this large buckwheat zafu in addition to a jumbo zabuton, and I am very pleased with my purchase. I am a 6'3, 200lb male, and I am able to sit on these cushions quite comfortably. When I used to sit without these cushions, my back would often cramp up, creating a distraction to my meditation. I was pleasantly surprised to find that sitting upon these cushions takes away that back pain, making it easier for me to sit for longer periods of time.

It is just as described, and arrived very quickly. I chose the larger size to be safe because some people say the normal, medium size feels too small, and I am 6 ft tall. This large size feels perfect to me, and I probably could have even been happy with the medium size.
