DriDown Pillow

Sierra Designs made its DriDown Pillow specifically for backpacking with a light weight and convenient compressibility. Water-resistant DriDown 600-fill down keeps your head warmer and dries faster than standard down insulation, so you can take the comfort of a down pillow into the outdoors without the risk of ending up with a soggy lump of feathers. The polyester taffeta insert is nice and cozy, and you can remove it when you're trying to shed as much weight as possible. The ripstop shell is durable to handle many years of backpacking and camping, and the stuff sack keeps it nicely compressed for compact storage.

Good for what backpacking

So I got this as a gift. I usually use an Exped UL L air pillow. Yes this pillow is bigger than the Exped when packed. But for packing in its about the size of a Monster can. Going to a non air pillow was a little different but I didn’t find myself wanting to adjust the air pressure at 3am. I used it in my Eno double nest and it was plenty comfortable. I haven’t slept on my airpad with it yet. If I was going to have a base camp or truck camp with my cot I would probably use a real pillow but for packing in for a a few days it was a nice change from air pillows.

Very Happy

I've used it several times

I've deliberated for years rather a pillow of any kind was really necessary on a backpacking trip. After countless nights spent with a clothes stuffed dry bag under my head (and occasional objections from my beautiful hiking partner) I finally decided to purchase a pack pillow. So many options, I visited numerous brick and mortar stores to have hands on time with prospective candidates only to find that the nicest and most innovative were unjustifiably expensive. I narrowed my search to a thermarest inflatable. the sierra designs dridown and a handful of fleece lined stuff sacks. Ultimately deciding on the dridown pillow. First impression is that its remarkably comfortable and supportive. Really a perfect balance of size and function, which is exactly what you want. It takes some effort to get it into its included stuff sack and leaving it unpacked may well not occupy any more space in a pack than it does bundled up. A feature I was not expecting was that the pillow itself can be removed from its case, This still leaves a quilted quarter inch pad for comfort and the pillow can be replaced with a folded down jacket or vest. I thought this was especially well thought out as one taking this route will loose virtually no pack space. I endorse it completely, anyone asking me about a back country pillow will have this mentioned to them. Is it a necessity? No it really isn't but it's not at all a bad addition to a back country sleep system.

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

Very small and minimalist. Good construction. I wished the insert was down and not polyester as it does breath like a normal down pillow does.

Not as expected or hoped

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

I love sierra designs, but this one is a bit of a disappointment. The cover is rather nice, and feels great, but it's ultimately only good to use like a pillow case stuff sack. It's not "fluffy" at all to make up for the fact that the taffeta insert (the actual pillow) is rather full and stiff. I cannot use it at home, or for car camping, and paying this much for a stuff sack with a "few feathers" under the surface is not worth the dough to me. Close Sierra Designs, but not quite right. This little guy is going back. Thanks Backcountry for your great return policy!

Pillow for backbacking

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

I bought these for a backpacking trip and I'm glad that I did. I was expecting them to be comfy and pretty compact. It's a super comfy pillow but I jut wish it was more compact. The pillow is comfy and the padded pillow case is super nice (which you can use as a stuff sack for clothes, etc. to make a pillow) but as far as how compact, that's the only drawback.

Well Built

I've used it several times

Overall it is a nice product. The outer shell is soft, and seems fairly durable. The inner pillow is hard to roll up into a small enough size to fit into the stuff sack, which is really annoying, and why I took off a star. I mostly use the outer casing and stuff it with a jacket or clothing, and it works very well for that. Was a bit expensive for just using it like that though.


What is the weight of the whole set up?
