Nemo Fillo Luxury pillo
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
This pillow is the only pillow you will need when camping or traveling. I intend to use it for bicycle touring. It packs down to a reasonable size to be carried in a pannier. I have a few other inflatable pillows, but I think the only reason I will have to buy another pillow is because my wife will want this one.
The only outdoor pillow you need.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Wether your on a plane or in a tent this pillow is perfect. Packs up fairly small and is super easy to wash and maintain. I've never needed the slot in back to beef up the support but its nice to have. The velcro is a little small and I worry about the longevity but so far no issues. I've used it on a plane a couple times and it is way better than those stupid U-shaped pillows for me. As for backpacking, its worth the OZ's for a better night sleep. Packs up to about half the size of a therm-a-rest.
Great Pillow, use it on all my trips
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Bought this pillow for Peru, I end up taking it on all my adventures. Yes it can be a little heavy but seriously you will not regret it after sleeping on this pillow for the first time. With the straps you can adjust the height by stuffing something in it. It also has a stuff pocket to keep small garments warm, and the micro fiber foam is luxuriously soft, especially when the pillow is partially deflated.
I love this pillow, 'nuff said.
Worth the extra ounces.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Some would claim its too heavy. I think its comfort, packability and design make up for those few extra ounces. I started on a clothes ball moved to a cheap cotton filled pillow but I haven't slept as good as recently while resting my head on the Fillo. I take advantage of the bungee laced lower by strapping in a rolled up Northface insulated jacket. I find that it gives me the best height having wider shoulders. My girlfriend prefers just the pillow without a stuffed jacket underneath. The versatility of that alone is a great pro. That coupled with the super soft microsuede removable cover keeps this pillow way ahead of the competition. I'm very happy with the Fillo and will be purchasing a second one to outfit my girlfriends setup.
Best compromise of weight & comfort
Yes, 11oz is a lot for a pillow. Used to use an Exped Air Pillow (4oz) for just that reason. But the Fillo's comfort and adjustability simply can't be beat. Very supportive for side sleepers, washable, and appropriate for the park, beach or travel when you're not out there. Perhaps most importantly, if you a trying to introduce a non-outdoorsy significant other to backpacking, your sleep system is often the make-or-break point. Fillo has a magical ability to help in these situations.
I own the Thermarest compressible, an LL Bean compressible, have used a couple inflatables and others. This is by far the best camping pillow I've used. I'm a side sleeper, and have always had a rough time getting comfortable while backpacking. This solved it! Only had it for two weeks, been out one weekend, and didn't wake up once during the night! Packs down smaller than any of the others as well. Great pillow.
Generally, memory foam get rigid in cool...
Generally, memory foam get rigid in cool temps. I took a Tempurpedic pillow camping and it was rock hard at 45 degrees. Does the Fillow avoid this issue?
better than a piece of wood
so i realize that title doesn't speak well as to how much i actually do like this pillow. it's really nice and soft and the added accessory cord on the bottom of it is great for putting a sweatshirt or something there in case you're like me and tend to sleep on your side.
Nemo camping pillow is very comfortable
I've always just used my coat or a dry bag as a pillow when camping. I finally decided to buy a camp pillow. I've never slept so well in the backcountry. It's not super light, so if you're an UL camper, you may decide this isn't worth it.
Great Pillow, Local to me company!
I bought this pillow thinking I was going to regret the purchase... BUT LET ME TELL YOU! Very comfortable, I have used it on a plane, sleeping at a friends house, deployed here in Afghanistan, in an airport (Ok, Multiple airports around the world). I keep this packed in my carry on because it packs so small. Oh and its very durable too. I have laid on my side with this under my arm - Im no light guy at 240 pounds! and no bulging or complaining. I have also had my extremely hyper 55 pound lab use it as a launching point jumping down off my couch - not even a small scratch! Great pillow, worth every penny, and a local company to New England home home stomping grounds - Can't beat it!
Oh my god
Packs so small, and the memory foam "topper" is soft and comfortable. The air bladder inflates in 2 or 3 breaths (makes it easy to adjust to your liking) and the para-cord on the back makes it easy to roll up a jacket to add more height to the whole thing. Best pack pillow I've come across. Blows the therm-a-rest compressible pillow out of the water, if you ask me.
back side of pillow with internal stuff sack pulled out.
Good Pillow. Worth $45?
I picked this up yesterday so I can't testify to its longevity yet. However, with Backcountry's return policy, I don't worry about those things as much as I used to. All in all, this pillow is what I had expected, with a few minor exceptions. The memory foam isn't really memory foam. It seems much more like regular foam to me. The pillow is quite comfortable, but I wouldn't say that it is more comfortable than my home pillow. However, it is much more comfortable than other travel pillows I've used (most of those flatten). It packs down to about the size of a 1 liter Nalgene (see uploaded pictures). On the pictures I've pulled out the sewn in stuff sack to show it's flattened size. One final note.. this doesn't bother me at all, but might bother some. I noticed that when inflated (or deflated for that matter), the bladder does make "crinkly" noises when you move around on it. Nothing too serious, but it might bother some people. The micro brushed fabric is quite comfortable and soft. All in all, I'm pretty pleased with this pillow. It has more innovation and comfort than any other camping pillow I've seen, but am not totally sure if I believe it is worth the $45.
How much does it weigh? Thanks!
How much does it weigh? Thanks!
Hey there, it weighs 10.8 oz total and 5.1 oz with the memory foam taken OUT...
how does this compare to thermarest large...
how does this compare to thermarest large in terms of how big it can get and how small it can be compressed. Anyone try both and have a preference
Better Than My Home Pillow
One of the best backpacking investments I have ever made.
The Fillo is pretty light and packs down very small for it's unpacked size. (Half a 1 liter Nalgene)
The memory foam is amazing, from sleeping in the car, to the back country, and even at home.
The inflatable bladder is genius, and never leaks.
The foam and bladder come out so the exterior is machine washable.
I wish I could give this 6 stars, I love this pillow that much.
If you want to sleep well in the back country, get the Fillow.
so good i use it on my bed at home
honestly, this is the BEST pillow out there. i am pretty finicky about pillows, what can i say, i am a fan of comfort. i am also a fan of getting a great nights rest after a day of madness so... yeah, lightweight, small pack down size, and just right kinda size under your melon. you can easily adjust the firmness with the little valve as you are laying down on it too which is really cool if you like it firm or mushy. all in all, i refuse to travel, camp, backpack, dual sport, or do anything without this pillow. it is now as valuable to me as my water bottle. nemo makes the best stuff, i have 3 of their tents as well, obi-1, losi-2, and losi-storm-3(for when the lady and the dog want to hang out). best 40$ you can spend really... thanks nemo!!!
