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

Air-Core Ultralight

rated 4 of 5 stars Lightweight and compact pillow that is perfect for backpacking since it is not only comfortable but also ultralight. Rounded top keeps the pillow securely tucked into your mummy bag without sliding around. I purchased this pillow at the last minute at REI right before my last backpacking trip. Previously I had been using a larger, non-inflatable Coleman pillow that had simply worn out.

Hyperlite Pillow

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This pillow is incredibly lightweight and compact. It compacts to tennis ball size with little effort. I can recommend it especially to ultralight backpackers at 2.4oz.

Also, a tip: Don't fully… Full review

Air-Core Ultralight

Sure, many people make that stuff work. But I really wanted to sleep as comfortably as possible to be ready for the next days big hike.  many of the above items were OK for a little while but… Full review

CoolMax MummyLiner

rated 4 of 5 stars Great product, aided in my successful thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail 2012. I don’t know why anybody would go without one of these, even if it’s not this particular brand. Basically, you use this as a liner for your sleeping bag. It will add 5-10 degrees for when it’s cold, or you can just sleep in this by itself for when it’s super hot. One of the more important things too, is that you can simply wash it, rather than attempting to wash and potentially ruining your sleeping bag. The material… 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
