    Car Camping pillow.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    We have a smallish car and a dog so space is valuable on camping trips. These pillows actually made a big difference in space. Probably not a backpacking pillow but its great for other trips! It can seem a little lumpy at first.

    Good sleep in the back country at last

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I'm a backpacker who has lightened up her kit significantly over the past year or two, cutting 10+ lbs from my base pack weight. But the one luxury item I won't give up is a pillow. No pillow means no sleep in my case, and my body can't handle it. After many years of trying different and unsatisfactory pillows, I have found one that works for me. I have this pillow in size small. It's very comfortable. The fabric is nice and soft. It's big enough that my head stays on it throughout the night, but it is not any bigger than it needs to be. It's neither too firm nor too squishy. It stops short of a 5th star only because it's a bit heavy and a bit bulky for a backpacking pillow. But backpack with it I do and shall. I put it into my pack as the very last item on top and use the pack's compression straps to squish it down, and it fits fine. Fluffs back up quickly when you find your camp. If you are someone who can't sleep well without a pillow, you can't go wrong with this. The filling seemed a little weird when I first bought the pillow, but in fact it works great and does not feel lumpy at all when you're sleeping on it. Thumbs up, Therm-a-rest.

    Great Camp Pillow!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is a very comfortable pillow for camping. I bought the medium size and it is just right if you don't want your head to fall off of it overnight. It rolls into a pocket on the side of the pillow but my only complaint is that it doesn't get super small and packable. It is great for car camping but if you are trying to conserve space and take it backpacking I would go with an inflatable pillow that packs down really small.

    Good pillow

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is a pretty decent pillow once you unroll and fluff it up. The one thing I don't like about it is that after a few uses, it is almost impossible to get it to roll up to the size it came in. I bought the large, but it takes up too much pack space, so I think I might try a smaller size.

    Mom loves it SO MUCH

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

    This pillow is made of expandable foam, if it feels a little lumpy at first, you just have shift the foam around a bit so it's evenly distributed. It compresses to the diameter of a half used paper towel roll. I let my mom use it while also testing out my sleeping pad in the living room and she fell asleep like a baby. In fact she's loved it so much that she hasn't returned it since. For the win?

    Comfy and Compact

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    What a great pillow. It can compress down to about the size of a Nalgene, but then fluffs right up and is incredibly comfortable. The only downside is that it does not have a removable cover for washing. No need to sleep on a balled up sweatshirt anymore, GET THIS PILLOW!

    Love it

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This pillow is so perfect for traveling with! I have used it on planes and for backpacking/camping so far and have been very happy with its performance! It's not the smallest when compressed down, but well worth the comfort it gives for my neck!

    Great For Travel or Camping

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    We who camp and travel know how difficult it can me to sleep on dirt or on an airplane. Some might think they might want to go with air filled pillows because thy pack smaller. However, when they sleep on them they aren't as comfortable as their pillows at home. You get a compact pillow with the softness that rivals your pillows at home. To save room in your pack you can hook it to a daisy chain on the outside of your pack. A good nights sleep is worth the weight or nap.

    Great For Travel or Camping

    Pretty Soft, Packs Down

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Got this for a 2 week trip, and it worked well, although I didn't use it at all in the airplane. This is where a neck pillow holds the advantage, but I still got use out of this pillow at hotels and such. Works well for car camping too.

    Get what you pay for

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Hey, it's cheap (bought mine for something like $15), It'll stuff well enough, and it beats sleeping on nothing. If you want to feel like you're in your bed at home, you'll be disappointed. I, however, just needed something to cushion the noggin just a bit, and for the price, I can't really be upset.

    Great for camping and traveling

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This thing rocks. I use it mostly for camping, but also use it for flights. It's pretty packable and light. Unroll it and let it stand for an hour prior to using, as it will then fluff up. Can't beat it for the price!

    Travelling or Camping soon? Get this!!!

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

    If you are travelling or camping soon this is a must buy! My only advice is that it does run a tad small, go up one size and you'll be in heaven when you get some shut eye!!! A couple of other fun little facts about this pillow are, it is machine washable and is made in the USA.

    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 :)

    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.

    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.
