Eagles Nest Outfitters ParaPillow

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a great little pillow for those looking for a little extra comfort under the head. Packs down into a pouch for easy moving and comes in three bright colors. The ParaPillow is great for those folks that want to have a little extra padding under their heads while swinging in the hammock. This pillow (which I have in Red/Gray) is light and breathable. At no point during its use did the back of my head or neck get hot.  The fill in the pillow is nice and fluffy, and it retains its shape even… Full review

Eagles Nest Outfitters ParaPillow

rated 4 of 5 stars It's a nice pillow. Light and easily packed. Great product. Full review

Cocoon Air-Core Ultralight

rated 3 of 5 stars Bought this pillow at an REI Garage Sale trying to find a small, light weight 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… Full review

Quixote Goose Down Pillow

rated 3 of 5 stars Decent down pillow for camping and traveling. Lightweight and compressible. This was a spontaneous purchase at one of REI's Garage Sales. It was marked down to $15 so I snatched it up thinking a down pillow would be perfect for backpacking. It was missing the pillow case but I figured I can make one from an old one at home. I used a Therm-a-Rest pillow last year and was never quite happy with it. There's a lumpiness to it that always bothered me and I use down pillows at home so I was excited to… Full review

Kelty Go Pillow

rated 3 of 5 stars Not a bad pillow, but there's no easy way to remove/replace the batting! Do NOT leave it folded and packed in its bag. Thinking that I deserved a little 'luxury," I found and purchased this little camping/travel pillow at our local Target (department store). The first thing I discovered was that this thing does NOT want to go back into its included stuff-bag! Once it came out it was a real fight to get it forced back in. I used it for a year or so, maybe 10-12 times over the year, and while I enjoyed… Full review

Exped Air Pillow

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Lightweight, inflatable comfort that beats a fleece in a stuff sack, if you're not scared away by the price. In my younger days, I felt confident that a fleece stuffed into a stuff sack was a sufficiently dreamy pillow to obviate the need for packing a separate one. Of course I also believed a military closed cell sleep pad was as comfortable as a Therm-a-Rest. Unless I am paring grams, I now take my Therm-a-Rest and, yes, my Exped Air Pillow, too. And why not? At 2.82 oz/80g (weight does not include… Full review

Therm-a-Rest Stuff Sack Pillow

rated 5 of 5 stars This is what I really like for a pillow. I did to try to use a Thermarest pillow. What a joke. This is the thing for having a pillow. Fill it with your jacket or clothes. Full review

Cocoon 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. I wanted something very lightweight and compact.   It folds up into its very small stuff sack that I would compare… Full review

Therm-a-Rest Down Pillow

rated 4 of 5 stars With a Goldilocks [and the Three Bears] mindset, I found that Therm-a-Rest's Compressible Foam Pillow was too much loft for me. I bought their down pillow, and — by itself — it doesn't have enough loft for me. However, by either folding the pillow in half (and doubling it up on itself) or stuffing the cinch-able back side with clothing, I find this adjustable pillow to be the best one for me. Or, as Goldilocks would say herself, "Just right!" Therm-a-Rest Down Pillow SIZE Medium, 19" X 14"… Full review
