great pillow

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I pretty much use this pillow every other weekend and it is great easy to clean, holds its fluffiness vary well, but it is a little lumpy but hey these are the good lumps lol. all in all great pillow

For the price and weight...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Looking through other pillows, this one is easily the best value. The weight isn't THAT much more than some of the other Thermarest and Big Agnes pillows (for the small ALPS pillow), but the price is so much cheaper. Can be found for less than $10, and, in my opinion, is much much more comfortable than other inflatable and ultra light pillows. It's more like a regular pillow.

I stuff it in the hood of my sleeping bag to keep it puffed up, and it feels nice. It's no fluffy down pillow, but it does the job and I can't complain.

Better than a sleepless night

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

For many, it's not an issue. But for those of us so urbanized that we still reach for a lightswitch on the trail, a pillow is a necessity. I can't sleep if my head isn't comfortable. If I can't sleep, then my hike suffers.
This pillow is not the most compressible. It is not the lightest, it is not the most luxurious. But it's good enough to get me and my wife into REM sleep for a few hours each night.
We're packing two for Patagonia and there's no regretting the added bulk and weight. It's a matter of basic human rights at this point.

Comfortable but not Compressible

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This pillow is great. I am an outdoors enthusiast that prefers to car camp so this pillow is perfect for me. It is durable, lightweight, and quite comfortable. However, if you are a backpacker and are trying to pack light and small this might not be your pillow. It doesn't pack up very small and doesn't compress. Like I said, for my use I wouldn't pick any other pillow, and you'll be happy with how comfortable it is. Something I've found useful: this pillow folds in half in the stuff-sack. Try folding it opposite ways each time you take it out, it seems to help not leave a permanent fold in the pillow and it lays a bit flatter while you are sleeping. Happy sleeping!

Either. I have the large pillow and it is very near the size of the pillow I sleep with at home, so I got it for that reason. You can't go wrong if you are a sound sleeper. If you move a lot maybe a larger pillow would be better.

Favorite Camping Pillow

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If you do not have one yet you are missing out. I absolutely love this pillow. The price is amazing and it is incredibly comfortable. With the stuff sack provided it does not pack down incredibly small, but if you are intending to backpack, you could stick this in a compression sack along with some clothes. I went with the 10x20 size and it is small enough, but incredibly comfy and the interior stuffing does not shift around or lump. I use this for camping, car trips, and plane travel (window seat) and it has worked wonderfully so far.

Good pillow

Used it in Denali and it held up great! Sleep was 100% better.

Comfortable, not very packable.

This pillow (in the large size) is not the most packable option out there, but it definitely is comfortable! Stays lofted even after a full night's sleep. Great for back sleepers, not quite high enough for side sleepers.

Already broke it in

I use it for weekend trips between parents' houses, friends houses, and in 2 weeks It'll be taken all over the Colorado Plateau for 2 weeks on a college field trip. I've broken it in with some slobber already on the weekends and it works pretty well for the price. Can't beat it. Just fold it into 3rds and tuck it away in it's bag and you're ready to go. It's a good little travel pillow.

Good Pillow

Wish it was a little more comfortable but for the price it is a great buy. Plus it packs very small.

Better Sleep

I purchased the small one (10X20), which compresses down to a football (minus one inch off each tip of the ball), so it's not too big. Once out, the size is perfect for my head, and I have a big one. It's comfortable and fluffy, and allows me to sleep sideways as I normally do. It weighs in at about 7 oz, so it doesn't weigh down your pack.

Highly recommended, solid backpacking pillow for the price. Has made sleeping easier.

Picture shows it next to my very small Princeton Tec headlamp. About 6.5 inches across by 9.5 inches high when compressed.

I have the small one, about. 7.5 oz. Once compressed, it compresses down to the size of a football, minus an inch off each tip of the ball. I'll try and put up a picture later.

Good, cheap pillow

The Alps Mountaineering Camp Pillow is a great pillow and is very cheap. I found the Alps Mountaineering Camp Pillow when looking for something better comfort wise than my Therm-a-Rest compressible pillow. I got this one, which is filled with Thermolite and allows your head to lay evenly on it, something the Therm-a-Rest does not. Although not made in the USA, I would say go get one cause it is comfy.

Sleep

Great little pillow for camping, compresses well. Surprisingly comfortable for how small it is, helped me get a better nights sleep out in the woods.

What are the dimensions in a stuff/compression...

What are the dimensions in a stuff/compression sack? Does it come w a compression sack?

Responded on

It does come with a compression sack, and I would say it stuffs down to the size of a football minus one inch off each side (basically, shave off one inch of the tips of the football).
