Weight: 3 oz (104 g)
Dimensions: 18.5" x 11" (47 x 28 cm)
MSRP: $12

Pros:

If you're weight-conscious, but still want a decent-sized pillow, you'll probably need an inflatable, like this affordable one. The Aero U packs down very small and is quite light. For a nylon-covered pillow, the brushed surface was fairly comfortable against the skin. It's also offered as the larger, rectangular Aero Pillow (8 oz, $17).

Cons:

It comes with a small plastic tube to blow it up more easily, which is quickly lost. The tube isn't essential, but it takes a little more effort to inflate and deflate the pillow without it. You have to like a U-shaped pillow, or opt for the heavier rectangular version.
