awesome travel pillow

This was one of my best purchases ever. I have always stuffed clothes into a stuff sack for a pillow, but I splurged on this little (medium) fellow for a trek in Venezuela and travel in Brazil. It gave me so many wonderful nights of sleep...on the plane and on monster layovers in tropical airports, in crappy Brazilian hotels, and, most of all, on a 6-day backpacking trip in Venezuela. I've always thought people who brought pillows were wimps: not any more. On this trip it was well worth the extra weight. It's amazing how this little thing "blows up" into a proper pillow and smushes down to nothing when you put it away. Everyone else was green with envy.
