The Sea to Summit Travel Pillow is a favorite for its simple design. It has a nice balance between super softness—including the soft brushed fabric on its face—and support. With the help of a built-in drawcord it neatly and easily compresses into itself, with the nylon underside forming a protective shell, like a clam. There are no stuff sacks to lose. The design also allows you to adjust firmness slightly by gathering in the pillow a little.
It’s not the lightest pillow, even out of the synthetics, but for its weight it is possibly the most comfortable of the synthetics tested. Some will find it too soft.

Loved the pillow, loved the customer service.
- Great service
- Valve started leaking, but was fixed
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.
