User Review: Therm-a-Rest Compressible Pillow
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: I don't remember
- Super comfortable
- Must be stored "open" when not in use
We have been using these pillows for over a year now and they hold up great. Easily washable in the laundry.
If you are looking to have the comfort of a pillow but are worried about the space taken up I reccomend buying the smallest size and tucking a jacket under it to raise it up to feel more like a bigger pillow. There isn't much reason to buy a large one. You won't have to worry about the comfort, it's amazing.
Keep in mind that the stuffing is small cubes of memory foam so they compress and expand. With that being said, we found that if you leave the pillow rolled up for a month or two at home it takes quite a few hours to re-expand and even then it's not great comfort. We open them up now and when we hit the trails the foam re-expands very quickly. Even a few days is ok, it's just when it's folded up for long periods that it becomes a problem. Remember to wash it.
