Air-Core Ultralight

rated 4 of 5 stars Light, comfy, great! It's an air bladder inside, so it will never be perfect, and took getting a little used to. I had to play with the air pressure to get a sweet spot that didn't feel too baloony, or mushy, but when I got it, it's quite comfortable. The fabric feels good on the skin and it's easily washable. Don't sit on it or put a lot of weight on it, the bladder is not invincible, as I found out myself. I managed to open and repair it. The Cocoon Hyperlite is also great, but the fabric feel… Full review

Hyperlite Pillow

rated 4 of 5 stars Pretty comfy, darned light, and packs tiny. It's an air bladder inside, so it will never be perfect, and took getting a little used to. I had to play with the air pressure to get a sweet spot that didn't feel too baloony, or mushy, but when I got it, it's quite comfortable. The fabric feels good on the skin and it's easily washable. Don't sit on it or put a lot of weight on it, the bladder is not invincible, as I found out myself. I blew it up, but just opened it and re-glued the bladder, no worries. Full review

Sleeping Bag Hood Pillow

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a nice lightweight pillow that is comfortable to sleep on and fits nicely into the hood of your sleeping bag. While I have been focused on getting the base weight of my pack down as low as I can (currently it is at about 21 lbs) I am also older, retired, and want to be comfortable when I am backpacking on week long trips, so I am willing to pay a slight weight penalty and carry an inflatable mattress and pillow. For a pillow I considered just using a stuff sack filled with a jacket or fleece… Full review

Expedition Liner

rated 4 of 5 stars This liner is super lightweight and the material feels nice and smooth. Keeps skin oils and dirt off sleeping bag, but I didn't find it to add much warmth. This liner is super lightweight and the material feels nice and smooth. I bought it as a light way to keep skin oils and dirt off my sleeping bags. It has a storage bag sewn to the chest area, which is nice so you can't lose it. It stuffs easily inside this pouch when you want. There is no zipper, which I like for the weight savings, but it isn't… Full review

Air-Core Ultralight

rated 4 of 5 stars Bought this pillow at an REI Garage Sale trying to find a small, lightweight pillow for backpacking. Was fairly disappointed because I didn't like the way the air moved around inside when trying to sleep on it. OK, I'll admit it. I'm a really picky pillow person when it comes to camping. I really like my big down pillow when I car camp and I'm struggling to find its equivalent when backpacking. At a recent REI Garage Sale they had several different pillow to choose from and since they were all marked… Full review

Backpacking and Camping Pillow Comparison
Many backpackers consider pillows a backcountry luxury, one usually left behind to save weight and pack space. But a good night’s sleep can be worth a few ounces (and maybe more) in your pack. Read more
