    Comfy

      I feel like I have tried every pillow in the market, in search of the perfect pillow. Trying to find the balance between comfort and pack ability. The Therm-a-Rest Compressible pillow is it! By far the most comfortable pillow I’ve ever taken backpacking. I love it so much I even take it to the park with me wen lounging in my hammock or on a blanked reading a book. It packs down super small and the memory foam resizes really quickly after unpacking. One of my favorite things, I will use it as a packing barrier around my DLSR camera while camping, I rest easy knowing my camera has some cushioning packed around it while on the trail.

      So awesome, I bought two!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Comfortable to lay on even though you feel the bits of foam. You get used to it when it's decompressed. When you unroll it, I'd say fluff it up to separate the foam bits from each other and let it decompress for 2-3 minutes before using it (thought it says 1 minute) It has proper support, and sleeps fine. Perfect for camping!

      Perfect for me

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I originally bought this pillow for my daughter in small. I bought myself a larger pillow in another brand. Mine was too soft and mushy for me while this pillow was too firm for my daughter. We made a trade and are both quite pleased now. So if you like a firm pillow this might be one of your better options. Small is definitely too small for my big head though.

      This reminds me of the night we made our pillow trade. I did not notice the fire ants that I set my tent up 6 inches from on the second night hiking Eagle Rock Loop in Arkansas (the first night we set camp in a copperhead den). They engulfed my tent, but somehow only about a dozen made it inside. Fire ants bad. This has nothing to do with pillows, but is a better tid-bit than you might find in a fortune cookie.

      I let my friend borrow it for a trek.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      My friend borrowed this when he backpacked in the Canyonlands NP. Here is what he had to say after a 3 day, two-night trip: For most of my camping career, I used an extra sweater as a pillow. It was easy and if the night turned out colder than expected, I could just wear it instead. Backpacking pillows seemed unnecessary luxuries that I didn't have room in my pack for. And although this pillow is a bit more voluminous than I had hoped, it's light and - given a while to fluff up rolled out - it rivals most conventional bedroom pillow I've encountered. this will give you the night's sleep you're hoping for, even if you've switched a bed for a sleeping bag and your bedroom for a tent.

      Could be a lot better

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

      Tried this pillow because it was on super good price. But, I don't even come close to digging it. I think the filling is lumpy and the pillow won't offer good support (even though back country hiking pillows aren't great in the first place). Even packed, this pillow takes up a lot of volume. Doesn't compress well. Might work well enough on an airplane trip or car trip. Not for backpacking.

      Awesome!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      These pillows are amazing! The large is about average size a pillow should be. I used it backpacking with a 8L lightweight compression sack and it made it very small! So awesome I bought 2 more of them! I personally can't stand an air pillow. This is as close to a normal pillow I have found.

      Best pillow ever

        Just bought a second one. I've had my first one for eight years, still fluffs like a champ. Pro tip: when you are camping, put this baby in the sun to fluff it when you first get to camp.

        Did it's job

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Pro Tip: Before first use unroll it and stick it in the dryer to fluff it up before bringing it on a trip, it's super compressed from the factory. Otherwise great pillow!

        Med pillow is nice for travelling

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

        This medium size pillow is pretty comfy. It can be bunched up to hold a firm rest. Skinny football sized when compressed. Takes a bit to un- compress. Soft material. We bought 2 for travelling/airline camping. Car camping yes. Backpacking? Depends on your tolerance and comfort level, but required space and weight is not ideal imo. Keep your gf happy while backpacking type of comfort. I dont like the compression cinch much. Its hard to use one handed while holding an exploding burrito!

        Solid pillow

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

        I bought seven of these for my family - primarily car camping - and they were great. When you initially decompress them, it's at first a little disappointing to see, but give them a minute and they fill out and firm up. Like a down sleeping bag, they need to be shaken, and fluffed a bit, and then in a few minutes they take shape. Enjoyed very good sleep on this pillow, as did my family. I generally prefer firmer pillows and this one fit the bill.

        "Awesome, compact, easy.."

        • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

        I bought this as a gift, and hers what she had to say ,"Awesome, compact, easy to roll, quick to puff out. Super comfy to sleep on. Added extra- fit into my carry on for flight home and helped me sleep on the plane!"

        Dream Easy

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

        Nothing like a good pillow after a long day on the trail. I wanted a pillow that was compressible but had loft to it when i needed it. Granted the first time i used this it took a while for the filling to uncompress, but i has been great since.

        Most comfortable pillow ever!

          This is great pillow, and if I have room for it, it is my go-to pillow for trips. However, for backpacking, it simply is too large (takes up the room of a football, albeit feather light). I need more room in my pack, so went with a similar size Cocoon inflatable pillow. That worked great and was the size of a feather light potato. But oh man, if I had my thermarest, I would have slept even better! Two great pillows. Pick the one you have room for.

          Awesome Pillow

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          This pillow is great! I always bring it along whenever i'm backpacking or even just car camping. I have it in the Medium and it compresses down nice and small. It fits in my pack perfectly and doesn't take up too much room. I'd say the Medium compresses down to about the size of a football. Overall, really nice pillow filled with a very compressible foam.

          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

          ... btw the ultimate answer to your question is "yes." Good for both. I actually own two copies of the pillow and I use them in the car (for my kids) on long rides.



          If you want to see this thing fluff: put it in the dryer. WOW.

          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.

          What size did you get? Anyone using a small? I pretty much sleep on my back.

          Thanks!

          The small is great! it's just enough cushion to not have your head directly on the ground. I've stopped using full-size pillows long ago and since I travel a lot, the small is great to use on the go (saves space packing), and very comfortable to sleep on. Hope this helps!

          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?

          Best Answer

          These pillows all weigh @ less than a lb, and are worth it for a little comfort to a good nights sleep. Size depends on how comfortable you want your head to be. Medium works for me, and I usually shove a packed stuff sack underneath for extra padding.

          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.

          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.
