There was a time when pillows were the mark of the meek, the fragile, and the mild... No MORE!! Lightweight, super-durable, and perhaps most importantly, versatile, the Cush, from Klymit, is my go-everywhere-a-pillow-is-needed pillow!


  • lightweight
  • 75D durable nylon
  • compresses down to nothing
  • versatile


  • a little slippery

This neat little item does everything that it claims to be able to do on its packaging! As a pillow in the backcountry it is excellent and offers multiple shapes to suit every kind of sleeper: back, side, belly, etc!

As a seat, be it on rocky ground with overlook views, in a shelter waiting out a downpour, or on the floor of gate A6 awaiting the arrival of a flight that will never come while surrounded by people that may not all get seats on the plane the way that they all got seats at gate A6, the Cush is an ultralight life/ass-saver!

The Cush is shaped in such a way that, if opened up and laid flat, it is a single layer seat for two individuals.


With the wings folded beneath the center the Cush is a double layered butt cushion or a nice little pillow for the sleepy trekker.  


I used the Cush in the evenings in its four layer form, with the wings folded under the center and then the center folded in half.  


I have used all kinds of pillows form the foam filled drawstring camp pillows to the soft-on-the-inside stuff sacks that one fills with their extra layers; I can state confidently that I slept better on the Cush folded twice to make four layers than I ever have on any other kind of pillow.

The materials are strong and held up well through miles of wilderness filled with pine needles, thorns, abrasive stone, and splintery tent-platform-boards.  

The valve is solid and very easy to use.  

The product, still packaged, is shown here relative to the size of a standard business card:



The overall folded/deflated package is about the weight of a small aluminum carabiner and the volume of a deck of cards.  This is a small weight/space price to pay for cozy evening slumbers and squishy butt padding around the campfire!

This is a piece of gear for the adventure traveler, the wilderness wanderer, the hard core trekker, the ultralight thru hiker, and the raging gear geek too!!

The Klymit Static V Air Pad is a comfortable place to sleep. Very comfortable. The Static V, with its innovative V-Chamber design, limits air movement and heat loss for better support and comfort. It folds to fit in multiple bag types and sizes. The side rails keep you on the pad and well insulated. Built with a rugged 75D polyester on top and bottom. It inflates quickly and easily. Usually taking between 10-15 breaths to inflate, which is way quicker than some of those bright yellow pads. And when it is inflated it is a comfy 2.5 inches thick and you will notice the difference. And when it is packed up you will hardly notice such a small package.Ergonomic V Shape designExtreme Comfort - 2.5 inches thickInflates quickly and easily - usually in less than 15 breathsWarmer - V baffles limit air movement and keeps heat loss to a minimumDurable tough 75D polyesterPacks smallIncludes stuff sackPatch Kit includedWeight = 1 lb 4 oz Dimensions - Inflated = 72"x 23" x 2..5" - Packed = 9" x 4"Materials - 75D Polyester
