How many times have you climbed into a luxurious sleeping bag on for a night of sleep only to lay your head on your wadded up jacket? Thanks to the NEMO Fillow Pillow, you won’t wake up with zipper marks embossed on your face. The micro-brushed exterior is ultra-soft, while the head-cradling power comes from an inflatable cell and an inch of memory foam.

  • One inch memory foam and three-inch air space cushion your head against the hard ground
  • Elastic cord on underside lets you attach folded clothing to the pillow for extra height if you're a side sleeper
  • Packs down in stuff sack (included) to the size of a liter bottle
  • Soft microsuede cover is machine-washable

perfect for side sleepers

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm a side sleeper with wide shouders, and pillows are always a challenge for me. tried the cocoon ultralight pillows - they were ok, but not high enough for my wide shoulders. this pillow worked perfectly! I packed my shell in the elastic harness on the bottom to lift it the right height, and inflated it 85%. got the best sleep ever while backpacking!

One use and then useless

I purchased one for myself and my wife and for some reason the valve on both refused to close after the first use. I'm not sure if it was a reaction to something environmental or what but it was a big waste of money for me

Saved my neck

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The Nemo Fillo is a great travel pillow that can be used out in the wilderness or travelling in a plane or car. I bought the Fillo to be used for camping but recently took it on a road trip and it saved my neck. The memory foam is great and very comfortable.

All of the details are well thought out as it can be taken apart to be washed or stuffed inside its built-in stuff sack, and the bungee cords are great for securing the pillow to something or stuffing something underneath for increased height. Overall a great product that I would recommend to anybody.

If Prone to Counting Ounces...

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

If you are prone to counting ounces, look the other way and put this in your pack, you will not be sorry. I know a lot of minimalists and ultralight packers swear they can be comfortable with a stuff sack of clothes, but I am not one of them. I am a lightweight packer but certainly do not count ounces. My backcountry comfort and ability to rest and refresh has completely changed with this pillow. It is incredibly comfortable and does not have that irritating feel or noise profile a lot of backpacking sleep accessories have. It performs like a legit pillow. Love it. I will say I agree with one reviewer that said a removable stuff sack might be preferable because you could roll or fold to potentially decrease the volume when packed. That, however, is easily remedied if i choose to give that a try.

So comfortable!!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I love this pillow! At first I had purchased a Cocoon Air Core Hyperlight Travel pillow and returned was like sleeping on a balloon covered with nylon, my head kept sliding off. I then ordered the Fillo and just got back from a hike in AZ and felt like I was in my own bed. Not to mention it compresses pretty small making it easy to throw in your pack without taking up hardly any room. I am a side sleeper and it worked perfectly! Definitely worth the money for a great nights sleep!

Camping luxury personified

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This pillow is one of my favorite items. The memory foam and air combo is dreamy after a long day. It is not the most compact item in the word, but it is worth the space and weight as it is the best camp pillow I have experience and it is far better than the
"puffy jacket pillow" I have suffered through

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?

Responded on

Connie (Director of Engineering at NEMO) here. Fillo foam avoids this issue, and stays soft even below freezing temperatures. We do extensive cold and heat studies. When the pillow was first designed in 2008, we tested a range of engineered foams and saw the "rock hard" issues you're talking about with some of the foam samples?not fun when you're trying to go to bed and it feels like cement under your head. We worked to develop a cold-resistant highly resilient foam that all the Fillo pillows use.

Like all memory foams, when you first open it, you have to give it a little time to rebound. Then it's ready to go.

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.
