Lose some weight!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Traditionally, I have always carried a separate portable camp pillow and a stuff sack for my sleeping bag, this little gem checks both off the list. I pretty much always carry and extra layer or two like a puffy and paired with this sack, they make the perfect pillow. My summer backpacking bag (Marmot Atom 40degree) fits perfect in here, as would most bags that can fit into a 8L sack. As long as I am not planning to get caught in a heap of rain, I will typically use this instead of my stuff sack. When rain is expected, I just stuff this, my puffy, and sleeping bag into a small dry bag.

Well worth the money and doesn't take up any room or weight, the fleece is super comfy too, can't go wrong.

As for the noise, the way I see/hear it pretty much everything while backpacking makes a little noise ( sleeping pad/bag, tent, nature), and this doesn't stand out or make me lose sleep.

There's No Need To Sacrifice Comfort

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This stuff sack is a great option for those who want to save on space (by not toting along a camp pillow) but also do not want to skimp on comfort. The soft lining on the inside of the pillow is super soft and the sack is silicone treated to protect whatever is inside. The picture I've uploaded shows the Small Size stuff sack filled with the Therm-a-Rest 40th Aniversary Fast and Light Sleeping Pad (a tight but doable fit) next to some Quaker Oats for a size comparison.



Here's the link for the pad:

There's No Need To Sacrifice Comfort

Good night!

    I have struggled with pillows for a LONG time. From using a nylons stuff sack, to a couple different compressible pillows it all sucked.

    Well, this was the answer to my prayers for a good nights sleep!

    Just turn it inside out, stuff some clothes in it, and just like that - instant pillow.

    The soft felt makes it way more comfortable than a nylon stuff sack, that's for sure, and the fact it hold my sleeping bag when I'm not using it as a pillow is a welcome bonus.

    Looked Expensive

      Looked expensive to me for what it is, and I'm cheap when it comes to comfort.
      Bought a few anyway to make the family more comfortable without packing bulky pillows on a river trip.
      They're great! Combined with my Exped pad I'm sleeping better than ever!

      Makes a great pillow.

        As the first reviewer said, this stuff sack makes a great pillow. The outer shell is made of lightweight nylon (just like the stuff sacks for the Therm-a-rest ProLite pads) and the inside is lined with fleece. The sack keeps your pillow (of socks/jackets/etc.) intact and the fleece keeps the whole thing from sliding out from under your head. In my opinion, it's worth the very slight weight addition.

        A very useful addition to take into the Backcountry!

          For a long time when I went to bed in the woods I would just roll up some pants or fleeces as a pillow. Now I stuff this with things during the hike or climb then at night put some layers in it and sleep way better. It only weighs a bit more than a regular stuff sack, and is worth it's weight in gold. How many times have you made your pillow and woke up in the night to it all undone and ruined your sleep? This fixes that problem well.

          could you use this stuff sack for the newer...

          could you use this stuff sack for the newer lighter prolite 3 campmat?

          It would fit the Men's Prolite Reg and maybe even the Men's Prolite Plus Reg as well. It's really meant for ultralite down sleeping bags, jackets, and other clothing. I use it for my Marmot Hydrogen Sleeping bag and the larger size for a 10degree Moonstone down bag. They work very well and one of the best luxuries I carry, especially due to the fact that I need a stuff sack anyway.

          What if you are an ultralight backpacker...

          What if you are an ultralight backpacker like this item was intended for, and you are busy drying out your other set of clothes and have nothing to stuff in the sack overnight?No answer is necessary, I guess this was not a question. Never mind.

          Anonymous people should not be allowed to type. -MountainMan Cowboy. Maybe so, MountainMan, but we type nonetheless. While the stuff sack is ultralight, I don't think it was intended for ultralight backpacking, per se. Its low weight is more of an attractant for those who wouldn't normally consider packing a pillow -Anonymous.

          I often don't have enough clothes left in my stuff sack to make a cushy pillow in a stuff sack at night. I use an inflated empty water bladder (my 1L platy), or even my shoes just to boost the height and then put whatever few clothes I have left on top to cushion. Got to be creative out there if you're lightweight...
