Recent Pillow Reviews

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

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 4 of 5 stars Bought this pillow at an REI Garage Sale trying to find a small, lightweight 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 marked… 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
