Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars

Price Paid: I bought it new, retail, but can't recall the price

Summary

A nice luxury for backpacking, worth the few extra ounces; comfortable and fits nicely into a mummy bag. I've used mine for a few years backpacking/kayaking. I plan to ship one to my nephew in Afghanistan — way more comfortable than boots!

Pros

  • Firmness is adjustable
  • Outer fabric is comfortable to the touch.
  • Just the right size to fit into a mummy bag.

Cons

  • Pack size is a bit big. To optimize compression, I take the self inflating core out, compress it, and secure with the Velcro strap; the pillow itself can then be stuffed in a small bag.

Weight: 12 oz (inflating insert only: 6.8 oz, pillow only: 5.2 oz)
Fill: self-inflating insert, Dacron-filled pillow
Dimensions: 16" x 10", height adjustable up to 5.5"
MSRP: $39.95

Pros:

The Sea to Summit Luxury Pillow will appeal to those looking for a larger, firm to very firm pillow, with some adjustability. The self-inflating insert lets you adjust the pillow’s height and firmness and can be removed and used as a seat or separate pillow. While it initially seemed a tad too firm and high to me (even when adjusted), I slept on it with no complaints or need to readjust all night. Comes with a Velcro compression strap to tighten around the rolled up pillow.

Cons:

It won’t appeal to those who want softness or a very simple design. It's pretty expensive for a camping pillow, and lacks a cover or stuff sack to help keep it clean, only having the Velcro strap for compression.
