Recent Pillow Reviews

Cocoon Sleeping Bag Hood Pillow

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a nice lightweight pillow that is comfortable to sleep on and fits nicely into the hood of your sleeping bag. While I have been focused on getting the base weight of my pack down as low as I can (currently it is at about 21 lbs) I am also older, retired, and want to be comfortable when I am backpacking on week long trips, so I am willing to pay a slight weight penalty and carry an inflatable mattress and pillow. For a pillow I considered just using a stuff sack filled with a jacket or fleece… Full review

Sea to Summit Aeros Premium Pillow

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Good product overall, pretty expensive but definitely gets the job done. This is a good quality product. The main selling point for me was how it packed into almost nothing, the size of a fist—very important for backpackers. The material is good quality and the area you put your head down on is soft. There are separate intake and release valves to let air in and out, so it is very easy to fill up. The only thing that it loses points on is price. It was around $44 at REI—much more than any pillow… Full review

NEMO Fillo

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Best inflatable camping pillow. Second to None. Your significant other will thank you when you wake up the next day and you got a Big Grin on your face. Then you will go out and buy another one because it was confiscated from you. It's small enough to even take backpacking. Your significant other will wonder why the Big Grin on your face the next morning. Then you will go out and buy another one because it was confiscated from you by her. (Nemo better pay me for this review.) It's small enough… Full review

Klymit Pillow X

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Finally, a legitimate replacement for my "bag-o-clothes." When on my back, the "X" in the middle cradles my head and holds it in place so my neck muscles don't have to. When on my side, my ear doesn't get crushed as the high spots support my head with my ear in the "X" in the middle and the pillow's just tall enough to keep my neck straight instead of bent up or down. While waiting for delivery, I kept wondering why I spent $18 on a pillow when my extra clothes in a stuff sack has always worked… Full review

Klymit Cush

rated 5 of 5 stars I got this product for FREE when I purchased my sleeping bag online from Campsaver.com and I love it! It only weighs 3 oz and it is very comfortable! I got this as a FREE gift and I love it! I take it with me on every trip. It folds in half or in thirds, it's pretty amazing. It's lightweight. It fits in my sleeping bag under my head or on top of my sleeping pad for extra head cushion. I usually roll it in thirds and put a clean shirt over it an use as a comfy pillow. It packs down very small, fits… Full review

L.L.Bean Stowaway Down Pillow with DownTek

rated 5 of 5 stars Thing works perfectly. I love being able to justify carrying a large pillow. It's small...then it's big! Could be used without any instructions. Very simple and straightforward. I'd call it spartan, but it actually still manages to be quite luxurious/comfortable. Very durable design. I've just used it for a weekend trip. It worked like a dream. Full review

Sea to Summit Aeros Premium Pillow

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Unbelievably light and packs really small. Have always used synthetic pillows, just purchased the Aeros for a 4-day trip to Letchworth State Park. The weight savings alone make the pillow an excellent buy, but the size it packs down to is what really amazes. Full review

Sea to Summit Travel Pillow

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Loved the pillow, loved the customer service. The pillow is light and comfortable. Better yet, the customer service is some of the best I've ever seen. They took care of my problem with a leaky valve immediately, sending a whole new pillow. Full review

Sea to Summit Aeros Pillow Ultra Light

rated 4 of 5 stars Excellent support and comfort for your head, for a good night's sleep. I have tried many a backpacking pillow over the years, but have found most of them just not quite right. See my review of the Feathered Friends Geoduck pillow as an example. Having purchased one of Sea to Summit's ultralight pads last season, and finding it to fit my needs perfectly, I thought this might be the one. The pad packs down small, and is so light (2.5 oz), you won't even notice that you've put it in your pack. The… Full review
