I was disappointed that the zipper broke within a few weeks of use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by sstone7 Fantastic Idea, Poor Product
Unfortunately, the idea to offer a blow up bolster is fantastic BUT the plastic they use must be too thin/or of poor quality, as the bolster deflates within 24hrs. I bought and returned 3/4 bolsters because of this problem, thinking perhaps the next would work but I was wrong.
I teach yoga multiple times a week - in group and private classes - and also work out on my own, and I was really excited to have these easily portable bolsters to use but I cannot rely on them being blown up...So, I won't use them in my classes/private lessons. I just kept one to use myself since I can blow it up each time I want to use it (seriously, these deflate FAST).
Gaiam, please, please improve upon this product as it is a fantastic idea and would be a really useful tool for us teachers!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Wendy617 Just OK - for some poses, not others
It's definitely not a replacement for a stuffed bolster - it works well for some poses but not others. I bought it to teach pre-natal classes but cannot use it for my students. What worked: downward dog w/ forehead on bolster, child's pose. What didn't: anything seated atop the bolster. The air shifts out from under your weight but doesn't leave you in a stable, steady, seated position. It's inexpensive, but seems well made, and I'll probably keep it for travel, but it's not a "real" bolster and certainly not going to work for my pre-natal classes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by justforgifts happy purchase
Bought as gift for my honey. Shipping - showed up on time no damages. Gift wrap was tastefully done.
So far my honey is happy and says it makes some of the stretchs easier.

The inflatable yoga bolster helps you to stretch and open up. The zipper pull did break the first time I pulled up the zipper but still usable. I am pleased with the product overall and would recommend it.
