OzarkJoywrote a review of Therm-a-Rest Compressible Pillow on June 14, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I wanted to love this pillow. I tried it out at home before taking it in my backpack. Home tests: It took a LONG time to puff up to its puffy fullness. Very comfy! Nice feel against my face. When I practiced stuffing it, I was not able to get it as small as it arrived, maybe half into its attached stuff-pocket. When I took it backpacking, even though I didn't compress it into it's pocket, it compressed inside my backpack and didn't quite loft up fully by sleep time, but it was comfy enough. When I awoke about halfway through the night, it was compressed from the weight of my head. Flat. Second night, same. I even tried to double it for a bit of cushion by folding it over. Both nights, I had no pillow for half the night. I'm shopping for a new pillow.
