Summary

* Trailspace Pick for Lightweight Backpacking *

cocoon-down-travel-pillow-100x100.jpg

Weight: 2.6 oz (60 g)
Fill: white goose down
Dimensions: 10" x 13" (25 x 35 cm)
3" x 4" (packed)
MSRP: $24

Pros:

The Cocoon Down Travel Pillow can’t be beat for its light weight, softness, and high compressibility. Its small size means it fits well inside a sleeping bag and it easily compresses into its stuff sack to become a tiny ball. Ultralighters who want a little something to take the edge off their scratchy, bunched-up jacket, but don't want the weight and size of a full pillow, will appreciate this one. Also available in medium and large.

Cons:

The down fill may be too soft and compressible for some heads; I doubled my pillow over for more support. The nylon covering can be a little noisy against hair, but this can be remedied with one of Cocoon’s microfleece or silk/cotton pillowcases or by putting a piece of clothing on top.
