Sea to Summit Aeros Pillow Ultra Light

rated 4 of 5 stars I used to have a lot of problems with camping pillows: not anymore. I used to use clothes as a pillow. Problem: my head would always slide off to one side or the other and the "pillow" was inevitably lumpy. Result: bad sleep. Then I bought my first inflatable. This was a dramatic improvement but... the material was cold and hard to the skin. But still it was a big improvement. Then I bought this pillow! Wow! I've had it for a year now on ~6 trips. No complaints about comfort, feel, warmth, nothing… Full review

Kelty Camp Pillow

rated 4 of 5 stars Have two. Very comfortable. A very good low priced pillow. Takes up a bit of room even when in stuff sack. The less bulky option is an inflatable pillow. Like all of my Kelty products, well made at a great price. Full review

Sea to Summit Aeros Pillow Ultra Light

rated 5 of 5 stars Inflatable camping pillow. Small, light, compact. Didn't realize how much I needed this thing until after I'd bought it.  Full review

Sea to Summit Aeros Pillow Ultra Light

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Waste of money. This pillow is quite comfortable, too bad it doesn't last. I've gone through three of them in a couple of months. I've spoken with the company on several occasions and, like many gear companies, they feed me bull. That's OK though, I just won't do business with them. Don't get me wrong, they will "make it right," but when they tell me that they have less than 1% failure rate I call "bull." When I did finally do that, the PR guy finally shut up and let me talk. I explained to him… Full review

Klymit Cush

rated 4.5 of 5 stars It packs down super small and adds virtually no weight to your pack, but can be inflated in 2-3 breaths. Great for camping or taking naps on mountain tops! I have had it for 6 months now and have never had any issues. The material it is made from is very durable and has never punctured, even when I have used it on rocks and sticks.  Great for sleeping and sitting around on. Full review

Sea to Summit Aeros Premium Pillow

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A lot of backpackers look at pillows as luxury items and leave them behind because they are too heavy or bulky. The new Sea to Summit Aeros Premium Pillow is definitely a luxury item because it affords its users serious comfort and support, but it weighs less than four ounces and compresses to the size of a lemon. Even more surprising, is that it has five and a half inches of loft and almost covers the width of your sleeping pad. For side-sleepers who require extra loft and support, this pillow… Full review

Therm-a-Rest Stuff Sack Pillow

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a nice, lightweight, and reasonably priced stuff sack/pillow that held up to some wet days and nights pretty well. I like that it is compact and lightweight and dual purpose. I was looking for a cheap stuff sack and I have liked Therm-a-Rest products before so I got this one. It works well and is super lightweight, which is nice. I took it on a trip where we had a lot of wet weather and it stayed dry pretty well. I like that it's a good price too. Full review

Slumberjack Slumberloft Camp Pillow

rated 2.5 of 5 stars A pillow that is worth the price and not much else. Its best feature is its quietness. This is a prime example of getting what you pay for. I originally purchased this as a last minute addition to my pack prior to a mid-summer three-day trip when the weather was forecasted to be very hot and very humid (>90F with 80-90% humidity). Before that trip I typically just bundled up a fleece layer I had to use as a pillow. Because of the forecast on this trip, I knew a fleece layer wasn't needed and… Full review

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
