    3/5 first impression but worth the money

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

    I have read the reviews before buying this one, and I knew not to expect too much from it. I've got the size M for a steal - $14.69.

    My first impressions after unpacking it:

    + not too big, not too small. I think Medium size is perfect for backpacking (size to comfort ratio)
    - but still pretty big when rolled down / compressed

    - the fill felt weird to touch through the cover, at first. It's filled with foam chunks, so it feels a bit slushy, for the lack of better word. Reminded me of cheap old polyester pillows where the fill is spread unevenly and you can feel chunks of it stuck together on one side but it's empty on the other.

    + after a bit of fluffing it up and evening up the fill, it got slightly better. It still feels weird now, but it's actually way more comfortable than I'd expected. I can definitely say it's more comfortable than any inflatable pillows I've had.

    + cover material looks very durable for a pillow, no complaints there

    + it has a cinch with a loop, so easy to clip onto something

    + when rolled up (without extra compression solution) it fits into side pockets of all of my backpacks. I realise it's not very practical but thought it might be useful to someone.

    - at the same time it's almost the size of a 2-person tent when packed. You decide if you want a pillow that takes up that much space in your pack ;)

    I'm struggling with neck pain so I am very picky when it comes to pillows and comfortable night sleep, but I have faith in this one.

    Overall I think it's worth the money I paid, and I want to give this product a fuller, proper review once I've had a chance to test it in the field. I'm going to have to fly a lot in the next few months, then going on a 10-day car camping trip in May and a 12 day Tour du Mont Blanc trek, and I'm bringing it everywhere with him, hoping to get decent level of comfort in the camper, tents and mountain hut beds.

    Will update this in a few months :)

    Great for travel

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    This was one item that I took to a trip to Indonesia that I am really happy that I took. I bought the medium and its just big enough to be comfortable and not too bulky. If you really need to save space this might not be for you but it was worth it for me. When you are on planes for almost 20 hours its nice to have something other than a neck pillow. It was nice to use this for a few hours and then trade my wife for the neck pillow. It was also more comfortable than a lot of the pillows provided in the guest houses.

    Awesome travel pillow

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    Bought this for a trip to Belize, it not only worked great as a pillow on the airplane but was super handy for the hostels that didn't have pillows. It was so compact but then firm and comfy once it laid out. I ended up loosing it on my travels so its back in my cart and I will be purchasing another one! Go a little bigger than you think, it runs a little small.

    Where have you been all my life?

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I'm someone that doesn't sleep well without a decent pillow.

    I always lug my gigantic 'normal' pillow around for car camping.

    Which is dumb, because this is JUST as comfy and 1/4th the size.



    It's reasonably light for backpacking and while it doesn't compress SUPER small, it is still acceptable. As John mentioned below, I've never been able to pack the pillow as small as it came in the OG package.



    I purchased the MEDIUM size. I need something ample to provide support but I also wanted to be able to take it backpacking. I'm a slave to comfort so while it is a little large and bulky for backpacking - for me it's worth a good night's sleep.



    I even took it to Mexico and it worked like a CHARM on the plane.

    Where have you been all my life?

    Not bad not great

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    Got two of these, one for me and one for my girlfriend. Love the luxury of having a pillow in the tent. I got both in the small since we wanted them to not take up too much room in the pack.

    They came packed decently small, but bigger than I expected. I unrolled and watched while it fully fluffed up. I was very impressed by the comfort it provided. Seriously feels almost like a normal pillow.

    Now packing it back into itself wasn't easy, and I was never able to get it to pack as small as it was when I originally received it. The size I was able to pack it to is a quite a bit bigger than I would want for something I am stuffing in my pack. Maybe I just need more practice..

    I definitely don't hate the pillow, but I do not love it. It will work great at a car camping pillow and travel pillow, as others have already pointed out. One of ours has also made a habit of hanging out on our couch for added comfort when lounging out.

    Very Fluffy Pillow

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    Like many of the reviewers, I took my pillow out of the box and was skeptical. But then I let it chill out for a couple of minutes and it turned into a fluffy, cloud-like item.

    This pillow is very comfortable and great for car camping. I have a medium one, which is plenty big. I probably would be comfortable on a small as well. It packs down to about half of its size, but it's a little difficult to do and still is on the bulky side.

    My only complaint about this pillow is that it's a little too firm and tall. I sleep mostly on my side with my arm under my pillow and sometimes this position makes my neck hurt with this pillow.

    Great Camp Pillow

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

    This is a great camp pillow! I agree, it doesn't pack down super small so it's not ideal for backpacking, but definitely useable for backpacking if you have the space. Probably better for car camping or long road trips/traveling. But it is relatively light weight, soft, and comfortable for sleeping. After you unroll it, it takes a while to fluff up, so don't be concerned that it's not going to be plush enough.

    I'd recommend keeping it unrolled when not in use so the foam isn't constantly compressed. But it is quite easy to roll back up, just do it like a sleeping pad.

    Great pillow

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

    I ordered this last week and tried it out last night while I slept in my bed. Once you get the pillow fluffed up properly, it is very comfortable. It is a little difficult to stuff back into its little bag after it is really fluffed up though. I suggest rolling it like a sleeping bag.

    Works great

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I bought this in a M and also have one in S. The M isn't all that much bigger than the small when compressed, but noticeably cushier when open. I use it for car camping and backpacking. Definitely gets smooshed down a bit after a couple of nights, but if you just machine wash and dry it it fluffs right back up (even after storing rolled up).

    Makes me happy

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I am not a camper. I wasn't too thrilled the first time I camped, sliding around all night on a pad, waking up and feeling like I couldn't move in the sleeping bag, and not being able to get comfortable on a fake pillow stuffed with clothes. Then I ordered this pillow (X Large) and slept great. It was firm and comfortable. My daughter slept on different pillow, hated it, and asked for the Therm a Rest for her birthday. The pillow rolls down much smaller but fluffs back up once opened up. I usually unroll it when we put up the tent. I also am planning on taking it on a long airplane trip and think it will work great.

    Great for camping and travel

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I've owned this pillow for a couple years now and use it for all my travel naps. I originally purchased it for plane rides because it rolls up small and I'm not a fan of the neck pillow style most travelers rock.

    Places you can nap with this pillow:
    -Airplanes
    -Road Trips
    -Camping/Backpacking
    -Work (kidding)

    Pros:
    -It's easy to roll up and condense.
    -It is easy to fluff-up
    -So comfy!
    -Washer friendly- After taking on a trip, throw it in the wash and all the padding gets a re-boost!

    I ordered a size Medium which is great for travel, however, it is a little large for camping and backpacking. If you are looking to purchase this mainly for backpacking, the small will be perfect.

    nice pillow

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    makes a great pillow tucks right inside your mummy bag head spot leave it open for a few minutes to fluff up ,the only down size is ,it dosent compress down very small for backpacking ,but well worth it if you have the room

    Didn't work for us

    • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it

    Saw this lovely pillow fluffed up at REI store, based on reviews and in-person impression decided to order - pillow did not fluff up as expected despite leaving it out for a couple of days. Pillow also did not compress as small as necessary for our back country MTB trip.

    Amazing

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

    I was skeptical when my two pillows showed up, but wow are they amazing. The foam really puffs up one you open them up and let them relax. This is my go-to traveling/camping/flying pillow. Only wish they came with a cover...I tend to drool a little :)

    Don't judge it after the first uses.

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    After the first 4 night trip I was ready to return it. Even leaving it out a couple days before it still wasn't all that good. I then forgot another pillow and only had this option on a 7 night trip. It was fantastic, it puffed up big and held up amazingly. The XL might be a bit to large for back country use but it's perfect for car camping.

    Is this good for back packing or mainly car camping?

    Best Answer

    Hey Ross,

    This will work great for backpacking as well as car camping. It compresses down to a good, small size. It does weight a little bit, so you have to decide for yourself how big of an issue that is. The weights are:



    Small - 7oz

    Medium - 9oz

    Large - 12oz

    I used to take a small version backpacking, but there are better options if you are concerned about size and weight. The inflatables take up much less space and you don't have to worry about them losing their "fluff" while in the field.

    FIrmness/compression of this? I have another pillow that looks deceptively similar and I was unhappy with how it compressed to a rock hard mess. I should know better given these are compressible, but try anyway right? Does this hold up? Or does it at least offer a uniform, relatively soft surface once your head is down?

    Best Answer

    It is amazingly soft. I use a small and a large depending on what I'm doing. They do roll up tight, but when unpacking fluff them up and wait 10 to 15 minutes. All the comforts of home, seriously! Do not store these pillows rolled up or they will take forever to fluff up!

    Do you think this would be a good pillow for a week long backpacking trip? If so what size should I get?

    The pillow will compress but still takes up a decent amount of pack space and as James posted they are not very heavy but a pound is a pound when you are carrying it. With that said, I carry one and need it for a good nights sleep. I also have the medium and use a down sweater or fleece for extra volume.

    i lost the instructions. how do I wash the pillow can i put in in the washer of strictly hand wash ?

    Best Answer

    This is from the washing instructions tag on my pillow, "Machine Wash GENTLE. Tumble Dry LOW. Not to exceed 125 degrees. DO NOT DRY CLEAN! Made in U.S.A. I think hand washing is always better, if you prefer, then hang dry using two spring loaded clothes pins, reversing every few hours until dry.

    I have washed mine on a warm regular cycle and tumble dried on medium with no issues. The only way to get them to "refluff" to a full pre-compressed state is to tumble dry them, in my opinion. I usually let them air dry for a day or so after taking them out of the dryer in case there is any additional moisture.

    If I get the large one, will this fit inside my Atom sleeping bag??? Or should I just get a medium?

    Get the large. Mine fits nice & snug into my WM Ultralite sleeping bag hood. It will also compress into your sleeping bag stuff sack without noticing any difference. The large does weigh three ounces more than the medium.

    small or medium?

    small or medium?

    Best Answer

    I would get medium, I got the small and it is nice but.... I would totally go for medium if I could change.If you're looking to save a little weight and space in your pack, go for the small. If you are car camping or roll around a lot in your sleep, get the medium, or even the large.

    Does this come with a stuff sack?
    How small does this pack down for backpacking?

    Best Answer

    They come with an attached stuff sack that they roll in to. Thats what the attached string in the picture is for.The small size compacts down to 10"x4"x3.5" when rolled into itself. The large size compacts down to 13"x5"x4". Check the pictures I've added to see them compared to a standard bed pillow.
