I hunted for this pillow and I do not regret it. It has the best of both worlds: comfort and packability. It combines air inflation, memory foam and sort of a stuff sack pillow. Oh and it packs into its own 4x6" stuff sack!
You can add extra height underneath and not have to worry about sleeping on a lumpy shirt. I got it on sale but I'd pay full price for it if I had to.

I bought the Nemo Fillo because I was in the Navy and had to bring my own sleeping stuff to work when I had Duty. I decided on this because of its space saving ability.
When I received it, I was concerned that the memory foam would be destroyed because of how small it was packed but every time I have used it since, it has been just as comfortable as the day I got it and always springs up to its full form every time.
This pillow is so convenient and small I have taken it to concerts, camping, picnics, everywhere. I leave it in my vehicle for those spurious star gazing nights.

I love this pillow! I go backpacking 3-4 times a year, and a sore neck from sleeping is usually my only issue. I've experimented with several other products and set-ups, but this is by far the best.
The features are great - it packs down to next to nothing in the attached stuffsack, the bungee on the bottom is great for raising it up a bit, and the memory foam/fabric combination is really comfortable. And I've never noticed any signs of air loss in the morning.
Where to Buy
Nothing brings a good night's sleep to the backcountry like a great pillow. The NEMO Fillo uses thoughtful design to put all the comfort of a full size pillow in a 10.8 ounce package that stuffs smaller than a 1 liter water bottle.
Fillo uses a combination of a 3" thick inflatable cell with engineered baffles and 1" of quality memory foam to provide adjustable height, stability, and the kind of sink-into-the-pillow comfort you can fall asleep with.
Looking to travel lighter? Remove the memory foam and shave the weight down to 5.1 ounces. Elastic cord under Fillo lets you attach an extra piece of clothing for additional height to accommodate side-sleepers with broad shoulders. The Fillo cover is made of a velvety-soft washable microfiber fabric and the stuff sack is integrated for your convenience.
